Apart from China, who is going to make a big offer for Dembele?
Because he is an awesome player...but he's 30 and needs his fitness / game time managed through the season. That is going to reduce his attractiveness - as a matter of fact it's probably why he never made a 'big move' despite being a well thought of footballer early on in his career.
I can see Milan put in £15m, but I wouldn't sell for £15m. That's not big enough to want me to sell a class player.
interesting article by Graham Hunter this evening clearly suggesting Bale is being not so subtlety shown the door at Real this Summer, as Madrid hope to pounce on any PSG big name sales.
Links Bale to Utd, Bayern and ourselves.
I think we would try to use Toby rather than Kane as part exchange however. Madrid would have to give us cash and Bale to get Kane, which wouldn’t fit the core message of the piece.
There is next to no chance that Bale comes back to Spurs. It would cost too high of a transfer fee and his wages are simply so far out of our price range. While i’d love him back, he wont be coming back. Madrid would likely try to replace Bale will Salah so they will probably command a fee at least around 70m or so to write off at least half of the Salah fee
Can't see Dembele being sold this summer considering the club has apparently identified central midfield as an area to upgrade. How can you do that by getting rid of the GOAT? Not to mention that if Toby goes in the summer, it may mean Dier spends more time at CB than CDM next season.
Glad to see Maddison's name brought up again, I think he'll turn out to be a great player.
Not trying to be a jerk or anything, but when is the last time a player from the championship jumped to a champions league club and succeeded? I know Dele did it but I don't know that I'm comfortable with spending a bunch of money on two players from the championship.
I hope both of those claims aren't true.. From what I've seen of them, Gomes and Cristante have not impressed me and I believe they would be serious downgrades on Dembele, and not up to the standards of our team. Gomes has been horrid at Barca and Cristante doesn't seem like he's got the proper technical skills that we're all dreaming of in a CM (IMO). The one thing I would really like for us to get this transfer window (regardless of Dembele's situation) is a young playmaker in midfield, so I'd much rather see us go in for someone like Kovacic, Ceballos, Ndombele, Aouar, Diawara, Rabiot, Dahoud, or Weigl (not sure if he's in our price range)
hopefully we are not going to sell toby , rose and dembele all in one summer. I still think Dembele has one big year left in him. Lets not sell him right now. We need experienced in the middle of the pitch. And who would we get if we sell dembele? Can we buy someone like Vidal or Kovacic or Kross or Modric? I don't think so. If we sell dembele we will sign another 20 or 21 years old young potential player which will be risky. Lets not sell dembele unless we buy someone equally or more experienced player than him
