Not German FFS
Xhaka wants to leave and Partey it's just most of us hoping I guess. Quality wise there's about 0% chance we replace him adequately but for a number of reasons he needs to go.Not sure why we can’t just keep both for their experience + they’ve both already played in the CL and sign two midfielders in addition to them.
I think that was one of the things we got horribly wrong when we shifted the likes of Vieira, Gilberto, Pires etc during those years when we moved to the Emirates. Ideally we should have just kept them and let them battle it out with those coming through but it was understandable back then as the finances were tight.
