Who is the Rice alternative? We done really well in picking up Jorginho and Trossard as bargain alternatives so I'm thinking along the same lines. A known proven PL quality player that is just flying below the radar slightly.
Tielemans on a free would be an option suppose?
He's not had the best of seasons but still has quality. He is probably more of an 8 though in our system. Think we really need someone more athletic for the 6 position.

If these are the best alternatives, just sign Rice and we’ll figure out how to use him.

We need to have the best players not just a full roster.
Ultimately we want to end up with Rice but as we have shown we don't want to have our trousers pulled down either. We've done quite well with 'if these are the best alternatives' be with Zinchenko, Trossard or Jorginho.

He has now had three seasons in a row where the phrase "he hasn't had the best of seasons" applies. I'd stay away at this point.
Think that's a bit harsh sure he's gone a bit stale I can see why he doesn't 'excite' anymore. Still youngish & a free transfer who could revive his career but I take ur point.

I think how well we've done with our alternatives strengthens our hand in negotiations as we can't be held for ransom.

Funny how this thread gets really quiet after another humiliating loss for propah English Declan Rice getting dominated in midfield.
