    I'd only take him on loan with option so we can assess his situation injury wise over a season.

    The problem with that is we would be kind of writing off the center back positions for this season. With every single CB we have except Sokratis either having fitness issues, wanting to go or their capabilities not clear, we can't afford to be assessing Umtiti. Besides his injury troubles, even if he doesn't get injured, how long he has been out and the type of injuries he has had, it is almost guaranteed he will need time to get back to his best. Add adapting to a new team and league and we are really asking for everything to align for him to be able to improve us.

    Have we even been properly linked to Umtiti in a while? I can't really see it happening, Barca aren't exactly loaded with CB's. If I were them it'd make no sense to let him go unless they're planning on bringing in a couple of CB's in the next few weeks.

    It would be the exact same scenario as getting someone like Rugani in on loan. Having Umtiti to play whilst Holding gets back to fitness would be superb.

    Every player from a different league would take time to adapt, its an unknown at the end of the day. Buying from within the league will be impossible for us now. We have to go abroad.

    Why let common sense get in the way of a good transfer rumour?

    It's like Benzema a few years ago, Real literally had no alternative CF option to Benzema but people were still convincing themselves that we could sign him. :lol:

    Unless Barca are going for Neymar this window. If they need to raise funds / clear wages thats probably when you could pick up a Umtiti / Coutinho.

    I doubt they have enough CB's to let him go but a loan would be perfect. Don't see any links so this is probably dead though.

    Can't say I was convinced about Umtiti but unfortunately it looks like 'Rugani or bust' for CB now, unless the club pulls another surprise!

    Quite incredible really. Our defence was terrible last year, with just a few days left of the transfer window we've actually managed to make it worse with Koscielny leaving.

    Yes, the Pepe purchase was great and we did really need a winger, but to not have added to the defence this year is poor.

    Really hope they pull something out the bag, otherwise this season will be a struggle again.
