Here's the article to which they're referring.
100% gonna be in that top bracket of keeper alongside De Gea and Neuer before long if he isn't already.
His positioning is out of this world, you very rarely seen him scrambling or caught out by long shots. Great at reading the play, so knows when to come off his line and sweep.
Reflexes, up there with De Gea, pulled off some mad saves that 1% of keepers could make. Honestly incredible. If it wasn't for him Atletico would be right in the sh*t.
He has a reputation as a poor penalty saver but that's bollocks, yes he was very poor in the shootout vs Real but he dragged them through the year before vs I think Leverkusen or Dortmund.
Also excluding shootouts I think his penalty to save ratio is around 50%, so he passes the AM test of being able to save penalties
Dream signing, get him in. I'd die if he ended up at Pool or Spurs.
I can't see us spending £80M on a GK though.
That's why it's wishlist stuff.
Horn/Leno are our level.
Same. But if we did, Oblak would be our Keeper for the next 10 years. 8m pounds a year.
Very good keeper obviously, but I only want him if his heavy price doesn't stop us from signing other players. In that sense, maybe it'd be wiser to look elsewhere.
Again, superb keeper though. Top 3 in the world atm with De Gea and Neuer, so you'll get what you pay for.
There seems to be change in direction. Maybe we are in for a surprise this summer.
Could easily see another swap deal with this one if AG final exits.
Isn't this guy nailed on for PSG?
You simple have to buy him if you have the chance.
We hopefully can manage fees for Evans and Manolas. Would leave us short in midfield signings but we have some exciting internal solutions to look at!
There's change in direction and then there's utter lunacy. We were laughing at City for spending 50 million on fullbacks and now we're going to spend 80 on a keeper? I don't think so. There's maybe 3 teams in the world who would pay that sum and none of them are us.
80 million? Probably would be a bargain tbh, how much would De Gea or Neuer go for? You're talking over 100 million here.
I'm not even going too....
Legitimate question @Rex Banner...
If Griezmann goes to Barca, will Atletico be in for a striker? You've got Costa and Gameiro, but would you still want a Griezmann replacement?
I'm basically building up to wondering if there would have any interest in Lacazette coming your way, as you were interested in him before. He could be an interesting makeweight in a swap deal.
This is a bit out there, I know. Just thinking of ways this deal could work.
Could see Liverfool getting him...Spurs is not possible except if they sell Kane.
I would take Alisson or Butland too.
They'll never hold them to that though. They're a club that still has to sell players, they're second fiddle to Premiership teams and the big two.
I think around maybe 40-50 might be enough, it'd make him the most expensive keeper ever off the top of my head.
Maybe PSG would stump that up for him but got a feeling they'll be after Donnarumma or Lafont in a couple of years anyway.
Atletico are nearing the end of their cycle as a real challenger to the big two. Griezmann and Oblak are probably off, hopefully here
Probably, depends on Cholo tbf. I feel if he does finally ditch us for Chelsea they'll blow it up and concentrate on some of the youger players coming through rather than keep all the stars together
Both players are in the window for the right place. They may go for Lacazette but the club doesn't really gamble on players, they try and go for younger players on an upward trajectory.
Wow interesting, that's a lot more feasible then. I still think we'll end up with a less established but promising keeper, but if that's true I could see us considering it.
