    Your sleep should be fine. ITK mentioned fees to still be agreed which means we then need to do bids and levy bids so a few rebids then maybe a deal.

    The loss sounds like us agreeing to let another club have a run at one of our players next summer.

    In my opinion there is absolute no chance we will sign Martial. Zero

    I don't believe it was ever on and don't believe we've even considered it could happen

    What I wouldn't rule out is that we've bid for him just to proove a point and let United know we aren't their bitch anymore!

    But seriously, I suggest no one even entertains the possibility of it actually happening

    I'm sure any ITK on it is honest and well informed but "it has legs" for example likely means the source knows we've bid not that there is a hope in hell of it happening.

    Not just the bid for Mbappe, they are also already over their FFP limit with Neymar (although a mate reckons they will just buy all they can now and take a ban on new signings for the next 18 months if that's what it takes - all opinion)

    If that is the case, they likely wouldn't be selling anyone who could be of use for the next 2 years. If they are really going in for Mbappe, they will try to comply with FFP if they are selling players now.

    They signed Neymar on a free transfer, after Neymar bought out his own Barça contract.

    1st September can't come soon enough.

    I reckon it's gazzinga and foyth as the player with medical completed as this was supposed to be close.

    The long shot signing is exciting but not going to get my hopes up until it's announced on the OS

    Without sounding defeatist or infact rational.
    Theres more chance of you finding rocking horse shit than us signing all of those.
    Some maybe but not all

    PSG foot the bill for the release payoff. That payment is included in the FFP calculations. If it weren't, then every transfer involving exercising a release clause would be FFP exempt, which they are not.

    Actually PSG didn't pay his release he paid it based on a payment from Qatar to be an ambassador for the World Cup.

    That's a related party transaction that would still be subject to FFP. 222M euros is surely not a market rate for such a post and thus it would be included in the FFP calculus.

    if that's the case we might as well scrap FFP for the joke that it is.
