Inter opened talk with city to buy Danilo
Napoli enquired about Trippier
If they get anything decent for him I’d be fuming. Guy’s trash.
Same BS as last year:
No wonder they have £150 million to spend. They didn't spend the £150 million they had last year!
Not the war chest articles again , they always go with the 'war chest' angle which a sure fire journalist trick to sell papers.
Insert club with somewhat of a fanbase and either say they have a war chest or in poverty for an easy click bait headline.
Journalism is such a lazy job according to my source..
Is Douglas Costa still a good player?
I'd take him if he's still the player he was at Bayern.
He'd be a huge success in the premier league.
He has 1 goal and 0 assists in 25 appearance this season.
Seems it's always Arsenal that's played as the poverty club and Sp**s are about to have a massive budget.
As a retired journalist of 30 years, I can assure you that if done properly it's a really hard job -- a fun job that's sometimes not like work, but a hard job that requires long hours (sometimes basically all your waking hours -- or even your sleeping hours now and then -- on call). But in the internet age with all the focus on generating clicks for revenue, I see an enormous amount of shoddy journalism in the tabloids. I'm constantly annoyed that stories aren't even written properly anymore with the most important information in the lede and adding detail from there. A lot of these articles start with paragraphs of useless claptrap designed to get you to scroll down the page before finally getting to the point in the final third of the story. There are still places where you can find excellent journalism (both sports and news), but there's increasing nonsense. I also tend to have trouble thinking of people who write blogs as journalists (not that there aren't some who do good and interesting work, mind you).
I often say that the internet is simultaneously the best thing to happen to information and the worst.
@GDeep™ ... Still want?
Lukaku is ****.
They're in debt up to their eyeballs, no way they have a 150m war chest. Winning a crazy game and making the CL semi's doesn't suddenly turn water into wine.
If the Utd hierarchy are serious about getting out of their mediocre phase they'll sell Lukaku and put everything on the table for Kane. If they can't do that then they're essentially accepting that they've declined as a club.
A 150m 'war chest' isn't even that much these days for the big clubs, might get you two upgrades or a load of unproven signings, war chests don't mean a thing if you don't know how to spend it.
I would imagine all the top clubs first targets will be around the 70mil mark and up, unless you're Bayern, they will just cheapskate their way through the Bundesliga.
I don't expect Tottenham to be as frugal as we were through our stadium build, they are in a position where they need to strike while the iron is hot.
There's no way they've got that to spend. There is no guarantee that they'll even have CL football next season, ironically getting as far in the CL could hinder their chances of staying in the top 4 to qualify for next season, unless they do the unthinkable and win it. Plus the stadium took their debt to what, £600-700M? Yet somehow they won't have to sell any of their star players and spend another £150M in the summer? Nah, not buying that.
There no much difference between Felix and Foden city should give foden chance and spend 120M somewhere else
He won't is he? Foden will have to move if they buy Felix
