I have to say, and no doubt time will make a fool of me, but Utd's signings so far this summer haven't convinced me that top 6 is an unattainable dream for us lesser clubs

Rory end to the lowenbrow (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 26 June 2019 11:36 (two months ago) link

AWB is a brilliant signing imo. Best one on one defender in the league

Bit more business to do for sure though

Number None, Wednesday, 26 June 2019 11:47 (two months ago) link

AWB was nailed on to go to Utd for a chunk of change since November I'd say. A very obvious coincidence of needs for the player and the two clubs I reckon.

Packie Bonner's comments on Tierney are indicative of how hard it's going to be for anyone from the Premier League to sign players from much less wealthy leagues. Why should Celtic a first team player with a contract to an English club for anything less than £25m?

awb is a very good signing id love to be calling him a useless cunt for us next season

godfellaz (darraghmac), Wednesday, 26 June 2019 13:41 (two months ago) link

It's not so much AWB as let's say the rebuild necessary and the money already spent

I've just checked and they currently have 32 players out on loan, which is likely to mitigate the transfer ban a bit. Abraham, Mount, etc, are likely to come back, i guess.

United have apparently bid £34m for Bruno Fernandes, which is likely to be as successful as the Zaha offer.

Barcelona have supposedly put up £100m for Lautaro Martinez, scorer of six Serie A goals last season (who does look an excellent prospect tbf).

ShariVari, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 06:38 (two months ago) link

there's a story floating around that Fernandes had a clause inserted in his contract that if Sporting turn down any offer above €35m, they have to pay him €5m

no idea of its veracity, but it seems weirdly specific

really dont see it tbh

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Thursday, 8 August 2019 07:28 (one month ago) link

No, it would be the most surprising signing since Klinsmann, and with significantly higher barriers.

The only way it would work would be if Levy's decided the current wage structure is unsustainable. Realistically, idk if Harry Kane is going to be happy earning exactly half as much per week as Aaron Ramsey, for the next six years.

ShariVari, Thursday, 8 August 2019 07:32 (one month ago) link

Don't they have a ridiculous bonus system that means their real earnings are significantly higher than their weekly reported wage though?

I mean it seems implausible that they're going to get this far down the road and then go "oh, we didn't realise Dybala's wage demands were going to be so high" but who even knows. Maybe Levy is deluded enough to think he can boardroom hard man him into submission.

Matt DC, Thursday, 8 August 2019 07:49 (one month ago) link

Or it was all a bluff to get Betis to fold on lo Celso, idk.

ShariVari, Thursday, 8 August 2019 07:58 (one month ago) link

ive more concerns about him fitting tbh

weve moved up from salary caps and fees being a ceiling given progress and money saved the past few years

but cant see levy or poch chucking the bases for that progress out to start behaving in a way that has badly failed arsenal or utd recently

eriksen surely leaves, whether utd today or a european outfit later matters not

but lo celso/ndombele in, eriksen/wanyama out is neither a disaster nor a huge leap forward, regardless that it'll be painted as both

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Thursday, 8 August 2019 10:19 (one month ago) link

Lo Celso and Ndombele are several years younger than either and Ndombele is almost certainly a major upgrade on any of our central midfielders. Sessegnon looks like it's happening as well although he's obviously a work in progress I'm confident in Poch to work his magic on him.

different info on whether its an obligation or an option

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Thursday, 8 August 2019 16:47 (one month ago) link

Mooy isn't one of the wasters that downed tools last season but he's been a shadow of the player he was for a while. This funny business of getting him to sign a contract extension then loaning him to Brighton might backfire on us - if he has another dud season it might be hard to move him on when the club is thinking how much they could have got for him in this window. He must have agitated for the move because we just received £15m for Billing and are not under pressure to sell and the players all take 40% wage cuts with the relegation - or something like that is written into all their contracts. Proper tight northern bstads!

calzino, Thursday, 8 August 2019 16:49 (one month ago) link

I think it's an obligation to buy Lo Celso unless we fail to qualify for Europe. In which case it becomes an option, and he won't want to take it.
