    ESR must not be sold. Plus he's needed for home grown quota.

    is Upamencano really that good. From bits I've seen of leipzig he's not the best reading the game and slow to get in position

    I'm curious to know why we aren't in for Zagadou? He's probably much cheaper & already down the pecking order with Hummels' triumphant return to Dortmund.

    Add to that we wouldn't have to sacrifice any of our youth players.

    Upamecano is just a prospect too ffs, he’s 20. Do people actually think he could come in and transform our clown show of a defense right away? He’s nowhere near the finished product.

    Having watched Zagadou quite a bit, I wonder about his level of concentration. Might be a youth related thing, great on one one ones, but he seems to lose focus.

    It doesn't matter, he's already 10x better than anything we have. His physical presence and athleticism is streets ahead of anything in this league. The raw pace of the man alone would instantly improve our defence 10 fold, wouldn't get caught as much anymore and have an actual left sided CB.

    Agree. He will need time to adapt to team mates and the league.
    Even if we are to buy him, he will be under so much unnecessary pressure. Defending is a team thing and one (inexperienced) player won't make us impenetrable overnight

    Leipzig want ESR to be included in the deal, loan or permanent

    Because upamecano is twice the player. Upamecano is the best young french defender,Better than konate, saliba,zagadou. I think he's the best young defender in Europe. I'd sign him ahead of delight if I had to choose.

    is that your opinion or commonly felt amongst coaches?

    I am OK with that. We can't hold on to all our players while bringing in new ones. Cost of doing business.

    Not sure we should be entertaining losing ESR for Upemacano. I'm against it.

    Could end up being a 2 year loan and not a sale.

    If they want Smith-Rowe then they can offer 55 M + Upamecano.

    Obviously they aren't reliable which is very annoying :( from what they say you'd think its happening though.

    We can't keep all our attacking youth projects AND invest in the squad in our areas of weakness for the short term. But is really Upamecano that good? The quoted price seems absurd.

    2 year loan feels long, but if coutinho is coming too, it may be the best.
    Naglesmann will develop ESR. good coach

    2 year loan is a good option. Gives him time to settle. They obviously rate him and I think he will thrive under Nagelsmann more than Nelson did. 2 year would suit everyone.

    We already lost Amaechi, don't want to lose anymore.

    The boys can come back together in two years time. Win-win situation.
