Why are people saying to sell Puli? He's still yet to enter his prime, he has good marketability and the owners are never going to sell the best yank in the world. If Liverpool bought him to replace mane, klopp would turn him into a world beater. 

The same donkeys that wanted to give lukaku a 'chance' are the same donkeys saying sell sell sell. Its sad that the fanbase has no support for developing players and only want to buy worldbeaters like donkeyaku. We bough Hazard and developed him(although I will concede Puli will most likely never be on his level.)

After what the club has had to deal with, some of you are being a bit ridiculous with how quickly you want things turned on their head. Have patience and wait. 

Leading the Race FC.   

Declan Rice is the midfield version of Lukaku, what a waste of money that would be.

Reports from France suggesting we're in for Jonathan Clauss from Lens for around £8.5m.

ffs, silly season is in full effect

he is a right footer RB, 1.78m

the bloke turns 30yo in 3 months (we all know what happens to fullbacks once they go past 30yo)

and has only played two topflight seasons in his career (the last 2, for Lens)

We’re already playing with a false 9 with Kai. Playing Sterling there makes no sense and he’d be mauled by packed defenses every week.

Is he any good?

I won't lie the only thing I know about him is from playing Fifa he's had a lot of performance based cards this season which would suggest he's been playing well.

Agree with the fullback past 30 thing, you can't really argue with it although from what is looks like he is a late bloomer and doesn't have much mileage in his legs.

£8.5m is barely anything in this day and age. If he was deemed a very good squad option to back James up then cool but I can't pass judgement having not watched him.

Ahh a fellow Ultimate Team player! It's funny because as soon as I saw his name mentioned on here, I thought to myself... well his TOTS is pretty decent.

Yep, I might be starting to feel old at 35 but my Playstation is probably one of the only reasons I've not gone completely grey yet!

I know exactly how you feel, at 33 I question my maturity daily but not enough to stop 😄

It's bullshit. Dembele knows he would be a starter here under TT.

He comes across as a problem child this lad.

Can we really be bothered with him wanting away in a year or two to join PSG or another French club!

Club also seems wary of foreign attackers after seeing Ziyech, Werner, Pulisic go bust in the last few years. Signing Sterling means we have Mount, Gallagher, CHO, Sterling and could field an entirely English attack.

Another thing with Sterling to note is his goals and assists numbers. While I don't think he will reach the same scoring heights at us as he did at City but this is his numbers last 5 seasons in all comps:

17/18: 23 Goals, 17 Assists,  18/19: 25 goals  17 Assists,  19/20: 31 goals  10 Assists,  20/21: 14 goals  12 Assists, 21/22:  17 goals   9 Assists                                                                                                                                                                 

They are brilliant numbers. For a player who pulls that numbers every season at a team, regardless of their quality, that is impressive. Last season 17 goals is a decent return for him, when you consider the amount of times he was left on the bench. If he had stated more games, he defo would of got near the 30 mark I am sure. Grealish started more games and did not score more than 5 goals right? So I think any deal up to £50m, we should be snapping up. Mane left for Bayern which people are calling a good deal and that deal with bonuses will reach £35m. When you consider that Sterling has 3 years on Mane, I would consider anything up to £50m a good deal for a player who has proven to score, assist and creates numerous amount of pens with his dribbling ability and pace.

Got to say, I'm starting to feel Sterling could actually be a pretty good signing after seeing his stats and watching some recent highlights of him. His sheer pace and agility will stretch defences opening up much needed spaces for others to attack. As said above... he produced 17 goals last season. He is proven in the Prem and with Mount and Gallagher in the team... the English contingency is actually a really good thing for this club. Hmm..  maybe it isn't as bad as initial thoughts would have you believe.

I hope not because that would be dumb. Like any ambitious club CFC need to be wary of attackers who are not up to task. Better judgement is what's required, not a simple passport check: -

  • When some posters pointed to the warning signs that, at his age, Hakim; was playing in Holland, had never achieved high status, and was not highly sought after, many others still believed that we were getting a wonderful player at a great price.
  •  There was plenty of push back when I said that Liverpool's, "We can't afford Timo Werner.", claim was just code for he's not worth the money. The fact that neither they nor Bayern were interested told us a lot but many preferred to believe Liverpool's lie and to get excited about the hype.
  • When I expressed doubts about Pulli caused by the number of times was benched at Dortmund, especially behind Sancho, many put it down to his injury record only. Because some of those were people whose opinions I respect, I was persuaded by that claim too. It wasn't the first time, and it won't be the last, that I was wrong.

I still respect the opinions of those who were as wrong as I was about Pulli. None of us are immune to bad judgement but, as everyone here is only too painfully aware our club has been getting its judgements wrong far too often, for far too long.

What's with the interest in City's backups? Sterling, Jesus and now Ake. Among the three, I think only Sterling is a good deal.
