dont even get me started on Firpo, grrrrrr

he was my number one LB want last year

there are 3 other really good Spanish LB's too

Alfonso Pedraza of Villarreal (replaced Firpo at Betis via a loan)

and one I rate even higher potentially

Aarón Martín of Mainz

finally

Sergio Reguilón, who is on loan at Sevilla, from Real Madrid

 

watch Adrià Pedrosa at Epsnayol as well

and finally (and potentially the best of all these)

Juan Miranda, 19yo, tall (1.85) pacy LB at Barca

oh, he looks interesting

those big 3 Portuguese clubs are a gold mine, especially Benfica

Florentino is going to be a beast DMF

and Gedson Fernandes at CMF

Jota at SS or winger

obviously Dias at CB is a great target,and their other 22yo CB, Ferro, looks promising too (tall 1.92m)

I remember similar headlines about Pulisic a couple months before we signed him. Looks like this is happening.

or this is just journos putting two and two together. Chilwell has 4 years left on deal and held out for 80 m for Maguire. Chelsea have a transfer ban in January and City also have issues at left back. I am not convinced

Really hope not. We need a new LB but I would rather wait till we get a bonafide top class one if there's none available next summer.

Chilwell falls into the same "good but flawed" category our current two LBs do, would be a waste of resources.

I think hes about as good anybody who is realistically attainable.

There arent many top class LBs around unfortunately that we could get and at his age, with his current level, the games hes got in the PL and the fact he is probably going to England's first choice LB for the foreseeable future he would be a worth while investment. Jose Gaya is another guy I like, have done for a few seasons, lots of La Liga and CL/European experience. Talk of us monitoring him as well.

Chilwell would cost a lot yes so maybe looking at another alternative at a similar level wouldnt the worst idea but I have no doubts a LB will be a target as I cant see Alonso or Emerson both remaining,  especially of Frank reinstates Emerson when hes fully fit as first choice. Alonso was also heavily linked with Atletico before after Sarri made Emerson first choice back end of the season and I think we knocked back a bid in the summer too. Sarri also really wants Emerson at Juve so rumours of us looking for a LB are definitely along the right lines.

If City do want him after all he'll almost certainly choose them over us. If that's how it turns out then I say we stay out of the race and try to take Angelino from them on the cheap instead.

Why you think this? Jorginho choose us. Fred and Sanchez choose Utd over them and Van Dijk choose Liverpool. City wanted all of them admitted by Pep.

 only LB's remotely available (Alaba probably not anyway) who are worth buying, it is the weakest position in world football in terms of the market

in order of quality atm


David Alaba    (next summer is last year he is young enough to buy)

Alex Telles (next summer is last year he is young enough to buy, why we did not buy hum 4 or 5 years ago on is a fucking mystery, one of the most underrated fullbacks in the last ten years)

José Gayà 

Ben Chilwell 

Alejandro Grimaldo  

Sergio Reguilón

Layvin Kurzawa (next summer is last year he is young enough to buy)

finally

youth wild card

Rayan Aït Nouri , 18yo from Angers, who we should grab asap, huge potential

Image result for Rayan Aït NouriImage result for Rayan Aït NouriImage result for Rayan Aït Nouri

 

the missed ones over the last 4 years or so

Alex Sandro    too old now, will be 30 net season, one of the biggest transfer cock-ups we had in last ten years in terms of failed buys

Júnior Firpo (so stupid we did not buy him)

Renan Lodi (very much doubt AM will sell him, as they just bought him)

Only one of your examples chose Chelsea over City. Walker chose them over us. Once City's interest was known, Stones talked about how lucky he was that Everton refused to sell to us. Danilo claimed that he turned down a better contract with us in order to join them. I think those numbers bear out my claim that Chillwell would almost certainly.prefer City, but hang the numbers. Which club would you bet on in that transfer tug-of-war?

Walker being a spud played a role, I am sure, and yes, he would have been an upgrade over Azpi (mainly on offence and mainly the last 2 plus seasons, which is when I first started to see Azpi decline, starting that last Conte season) but cannot be arsed over him that much at all

fuck Stones and Danilo, nothing special there, and if Pep cannot elevate Stones play (I do not think Stones is a WC CB at all atm, plus is so injury prone) who can?

the one player they got (besides obviously de Bruyne) that broke my heart was Bernardo, and you can add in Laporte too (his value is being shown now, as they are fucked at the back without him) I would take a healthy Laporte over Skriniar and Romagoli, in fact if we are talking picking any CB's in the world, for just this one year and next (so 2 seasons and done), the only two I would take over a healthy Laporte would be van Dijk and Koulibaly (it is simple with them in terms of the 2 years, as next season is both their last under 30 years old, they are almost the exact same age, KK is 18 days older), with José Giménez rounding out my top 4 in the world atm

I desperately, after Mbappe, wanted Bernardo the most off that 2016-17 Monaco superteam, but nope, we went for Donkeybaka (full disclosure, I was thrilled when we bought him, he was my biggest mistake ever probably in terms of scouting talent) :(
