How much would Umtiti would cost us 50M?
Hope we don't buy Umtiti, too injury prone. Manolas would be a great signing 36 million euros is not a big fee in todays market.
Manolas is similar to mustafi a aggressive defender and error prone
Is he error prone? Always thought he was as you said aggressive but without the errors. I don't watch Roma very often but when I do, I always like him.
We should buy both with Sokratis with them in a three. Kos, Mavrapanos and Holding as replacements.
Umtiti stayed on the bench, Lenglet played well and de Ligt scored the game winner. It is looking increasingly likely that Umtiti will be on the market.
Umtiti, Kos, and Sokratis would be epic for next season.
We cannot afford to splash that kind of money on a player with a chronic injury. Talent wise he is more than enough for us but we need someone who cements his place in our starting XI, not spending half season on the treatment table.
Probably it's truth(if the price is real), but still it's citing goal.com, so it's better to ignore it.
Somehow this guy isn't getting me excited at all, feels like a massive potential flop.
I've started to feel the same way about Pepe, even though I've been high on him for a while now.
Don't believe this one bit, I think we can afford him I just doubt we are going to pay that price with the positions we need to fill.
I can see him going for less than what is being quoted, yes he's a great defender but the injury is a concern and if Barca do sign De Ligt everyone already knows they are looking to offload Umtiti.
There are a lot of CB options available this summer, red flags surrounding him, only way I can see Barca getting the mega money is off Utd who are happy to throw it at the wall until something sticks.
Wouldn't be too thrilled with Manolos either, see him as a bit of a risky signing.
Manolas isn’t good enough.
It really baffles me as too how Manolas has this reputation that he's actually a top quality CB.
He had a good tournament for Greece a few years back, think most is based on that. Underwhelming whenever I have seen him in the last 18 months. Mustafi level maybe.
I also question if a lot of his rep is based off his fifa reputation, from what I remember he was one of the solid options on the game.
I'd say he is slightly better than Mustafi, but that doesn't exactly mean much, they are pretty similar.
A player with a chronic injury problem + Arsenal = Nightmare scenario
Do not want. There is tempting fate then there's walking under a bunch of ladders on an Indian burial ground while surrounded by black cats.
Buying Umiti is the latter.
I am nort buying those chronic injury stories to extent people are
