watch him sign for another team (Napoli, cough cough) while we drag this shit on, it will be a shitstorm if we bid for him in the summer, because there will be no shortage of suitors for Nicolo

Valid excuse its 2019 , his wife is 6 months up the duff with his 2nd child ffs , she can stay there while she has it(or come asap chill out in London and still have time to pop little 1 out), or give him time off to pop back and wet its head , pop back ,i think they do flights from Italy to London nowadays lol, i even doubt that is the excuse 2bh lol.

Pregnant women are touchy subject and I already dealt with all this in a new post in transfer talk that sorts the entire team, literally every position

If he's hesitant to move now just set it up like the Pulisic deal.  I'd rather have him now but I can wait until next season if he really won't come now but is willing to in the summer.

In any normal club, where they sell a player like Cesc I would say as soon as that happens the replacement will be more or less immediate....us, it could be weeks yet.
We like it this way... lol

If we miss out on this guy, it could potentially be just as bad as when we missed out on Aguero. One was in the bag and the other is in the bag but yet our board want to torture us further. Go fuckyourselves.

I feel like he has a lot of upside so just that alone should be the reason we get him.

Correct if I'm wrong but Barella and Paredes are 2 different profiles, no? One is more of an 8 and the other more of a 6. If so I'm having trouble understanding why the club is hesitant.

Yes, if we are after a direct, like for like replacement for Cesc then Paredes is the choice. Barella for me has the much higher ceiling and can fit in any of the 3 midfield spots.

Never seen this Barella kid prior to the last week, but looks immense. 

Reminds me a lot of Modric funnily enough. Seems very broad in the positions he would be able to play.

Signing Barella would effectively mean that the club would not try to buy Kovacic in the summer right? They strike as very similar players after all

That's my take as well.  From what I've seen, his game looks very similar.  Including fees and wages, he's probably a cheaper Kovacic.

as much as I'd like to dig out the club about taking their time on this... I honestly don't even know which would be better of the current options that are reported to be on the table:

- buy paredes, re-sign kovacic

- buy barella, don't re-sign kovacic, promote mount

- buy no one, re-sign kovacic, promote mount

If I was the board and wasn't sure on the best course of action, I'd just ask Sarri what he'd prefer and go for that but knowing our board, that's unlikely

I'm not sure Mount will be ready for much more than what Ampadu is getting now.  I don't think we can rely on him getting regular minutes in the first team.  I suspect he'll be out on loan again.

Millions miles between Mount and Ampadu in terms of development, Mount is not ready at all.

Agreed. Seen a few on Twitter wanting Mount over Paredes and/or Barella.  Don't think Mount is near Paredes at the moment.  Without sounding too gloomy, i think we need to be ready for Mount to never feature for us

Yes, but if they fuck about and do not buy Nahitan Nández, they will not sell Barella.

Boca accepted their offer, but its been 3 days now and no movement

 

Looks like we are looking at Nandez too - doesn't seem the best passer.
