then you wrote Drinks is a depth option at the bottom of the post. 

Soz. You were quicker quoting than my editing ;)

And agree about Cescy. I was wondering a little whether he was dropping hints of a gooners return. I cant see many affording him or his wages so its a difficult one. Shame really. But hes a old pro and handles himself well.

I think it's Kovacic OR Serri.

3 man midfield, you're looking at 5/6 players, plus maybe a young option used sparingly (which RLC doesn't want)

So:

Kante

Golovin

Serri/Kovacic

and 2/3 out of:  Fabregas (unmoveable), Baks, Drinkwater, RLC, Barkley

Can see RLC out on loan again.

We'll see what happens.  I'm pretty sure that we'll get Golovin, maybe Serri, doubtful on Kovacic (maybe we can do a Courtois swap if we're really interested).

Don't think we should go for Serri at all, don't think hes anything special, average at best. Kovacic on the other hand? Get him in. Its such a shame hes used so sparingly at Madrid because he could be an excellent player with the continuity of playing every week, fair enough he could still improve but he'd be an excellent signing.

Agree, Kovacic with right attitude here could become fantastic player. But if not him, I wouldnt mind Seri.

Manchester City are unwilling to meet Real Madrid's valuation for midfielder Mateo Kovacic, according to Sky sources.

No way we will end up bringing in Jorginho and kovacic in one window - I fully expect us to hang on to bakayoko, drinkwater and maybe buy a terrible midfielder like vecino

Lol, if you think Vecino is a terrible midfielder you have no clue. Would be amazing cover for Kanté/Jorginho.

Maybe in bizarro reverso world. How much have you watched him play? I have seen him around 10 Serie A games just this year, maybe 25 overall, plus the WC. He is profoundly ordinary. I have listed 20 plus (including his teammate Roberto Gagliardini) who would be far better buys for what is his role.

Chelsea are interested in Real Madrid's Mateo Kovacic after the 24-year-old Croatia midfielder reportedly turned down a move to Manchester United because of Jose Mourinho's style of play. (Express, via Calciomercato)

Quite rightly so. Fuck playing in that United team, player such as Kovacic would be wasted. Fred and Pogba are wasted in that team too.

He’s not a DM. He is rounded can play deeper if needed maybe but he’s a more offensive midfielder. He would play Barkleys role probably taking into account Kante and Jorginho are nailed on to start. He made his mark as a attacking midfielder in Croatia and for a bit at Inter but has was taken deeper a bit by Benitez and Zizou. He would be a great fit here regardless.

I think he's mostly thought of as a defensive midfielder because Real play (played) more in a 4231.  

Defensive midfielders don't usually make runs like these:  

C'mon Pedulla, give us more "hot days"
