Yikes, maybe 3-4 years ago.

Am I mad for thinking we should go for Ronaldo? Considering he wants out, reportedly, and Juve want rid. If the fee was under £20m? Taking his wages into account to get 2 years out of him, similar to Silva. I think he’d have a great effect on our youngsters as well, demand even more out of them.

Even if it was just for a year before he scoots off to the US or elsewhere. I’d rather have him than splashing £100m+ on Lukaku.

if his fee is cheap AF, then hell yes, I would do it, 2 years is fine with me, and he is still a beast

my big watch is Fofana, in the 2 games versus us

my dream due would be Marquinhos (agent Thiago) and Varane on the cheap (as he still wanst out of RM from what I see and it would be a nightmare for Manure to get him) I doubt Juve will cough up de Ligt atm, and the same with Bastoni at Inter.

It is funny how my targets (other than Fofana) have all drifted (Bastoni is 9th now) to the absolute top of T-Markt

we missed a huge trick in Dias (I fully admit I had my doubts on him because of the Liga NOS shit level)

I think Dias is the best CB on the planet atm, and he only turns 24 (tomorrow btw)

Marquinhos will be a dream especially with Silva and Tuchel here...but hard to get due to years remaining on his contract and been the captain of the club...Varane if he can return to his best form but the centre back I would like here is Jose Gimenez but injury prone....

his injury history scares me too

it is why I came of the boil for him a year or so ago

plus his level dropped once his partner in crime for both club and country (Diego Godín) aged out and left AM

a 25, 26 yo Godín would be a perfect fit for us

but no such thing as a 10 year ago time machine, alas

maybe BUT AM will not budge on his release clause (same as Oblak's AND Saúl Ñíguez's, all 3 are 120m euros, ie, £103m)

Quote

last summer:

Atletico Madrid have rejected a €100m offer from Manchester City for central defender Jose Gimenez. Atleti's president, Enrique Cerezo, said the Madrid giants will not accept anything less than his full €120m release clause.

Sergio Aguero snubs Chelsea as major transfer all but agreed

https://www.caughtoffside.com/2021/05/13/aguero-snubs-Chelsea-for-barcelona-transfer/

Sergio Aguero has reportedly agreed to join Barcelona on a free transfer when his contract with Manchester City expires this summer.

The Argentina international’s move to the Nou Camp looks to be in place as he’s tipped to accept a two-year contract to move back to La Liga, according to Sport.

Aguero’s City departure was recently made official, and it led to some speculation that he could end up staying in the Premier League.

At one point, TyC Sports claimed Chelsea were looking in pole position to win the race for Aguero’s signature, but it seems that is no longer the case.

In fairness, given Aguero’s horror penalty miss for City against Chelsea at the weekend, perhaps the west London giants changed their mind about the player!

The 32-year-old is still a fine player, however, and could have an impact as a squad player at Barca, even if he seems unlikely to be a regular in the starting XI.

I don't agree with Giroud. He's been a great signing overall in my opinion and he came up clutch alongside Pulisic in the run in last season.

But against Arsenal highlighted that Giroud doesn't suit Tuchel's style. He's just not mobile enough to drift and drag players out of spaces. Those front 3 need to be fluent for this system to work. Whilst Havertz hadn't had the best of games against Arsenal, we looked significantly worse when Giroud came on and lost any momentum that we had pinning Arsenal in.

Tammy I think falls into the same category not due to his lack of mobility but his all round play on the ball again disrupts the fluidity. I think both will leave this summer.

It's a difficult position to be honest because we need a goal scorer but I don't think it's as simple as buying an out and out striker who contributes little else. Hopefully Tuchel has someone on his mind, maybe someone less obvious but would suit perfectly to his style. Regardless of this, we also need the other front players to improve next season on this season's goal tallies as they just aren't good enough.

Mount, Pulisic and Ziyech should all be getting 8 - 10 in the league, 12 - 15 all comps. Werner and Havertz i think should be aiming closer to 12 - 15 in the league each, and 18 - 20 in all comps. 

We get that level of output from the above which I don't think is an unreasonable expectation, and perhaps add another attacker to the mix to contribute and we'll be much closer to the top next season.

Regarding your list, I'd agree with all bar Giroud. I think Christensen should also be added, especially if we continue in a back 3 system which suits his skillset perfectly, and I also think he has the potential of being the long term replacement for Silva as the middle man in the 3 (just like he was primed to do under Conte).

I'd also add Jorginho. I understand he's a very marmite player but he's important for Tuchel's system, being able to control the game and whilst Tuchel is here, he won't be going. Take his mistake out from the other night and his form in the second half of this season has been very good. Similar to Christensen he's very suited to a back 3 system also where he has added protection behind him. I think we would benefit more long term if Gilmour went out on loan for a season or two before coming back and replacing Jorginho. We should be more concerned trying to find someone who can rotate with Kante and offer his role in the midfield.

I hope the Verratti rumours are true, would be a quality addition

Could ideally get 3-5 good years out of him. Much like Fernandinho, bloke takes care of himself. massively.

How is the recent injury record?

Hope there is improvement...

Would have taken Verratti some years ago, but not anymore.  Currently injured aswell. Don´t want to sound too much like Mourinho, but we already lack height in midfield so if there are other younger, less injury prone options on the market..
