Didn't Breezer say that we were looking at an experienced south american? I'm not suggesting it's Cuadrado because that wouldn't make sense, but we could be looking at some older players than we'd usually sign.
If I've interpreted wiki correctly yes he signed for juve this summer but it was only because a clause in his loan (winning the serie A) was activated. So it's possible they weren't that keen on signing him

He's also being linked to other clubs, mostly Arsenal, which would tie in with a club being annoyed and shows he may be available

Not saying it is him but it's definatly possible

The signing who is very close is probably the guy JJ was happy about. Whilst it will be great to have a new RB, they won't be as good as Walker so I don't see why they'd generate the happiness and the subsequent silence to avoid something getting out.

Probably Barkley then IMO.

Also, the PL attacking player back-up is Josh King. 97.62% sure of that.
Agree, King as backup, however that suggests the other player is a similar type of player. Pacy and direct.

Still positive news, would be novel to finally make a signing!

Very interesting on the attacking front, hope we're close to pulling off a real coup. So much promise there, the only one that worries me is Cuadrado, he was clueless in his stint at Chelsea.
Fairly certain Cuadrado was dismissed a week or more back. Could be something in the Juve line of thinking given how they are recruiting.

1 very close, got to be a defender surely, probably Walker's replacement. Potentially we won't see the young CB until Wimmer is resolved.
1 under the radar, attacking player, won't be Barkley as he's not exactly under the radar. From the follow up, it appears the Italian player JJ has alluded to. But Gards rules out it being Simeone. My money is still on Berardi at Sassuolo, northern Italy, played in Europe last year, plus we are known to have had scouts at his summers U21 tournament that he played in.
I think Barkley will be later in the window.
Interesting to read we are hanging in there for sancho.
If we had scouts at that tournament that makes it less likely it is Berardi. He wasn't very good.

We did have a bid rejected for a very experienced South American.

I've never heard anything about Cuadrado.

I'm on holiday. I've probably drunk the equivalent of 6 large bottles of JD. And quite frankly. I have to say. This place is the bollocks. I love you all. It's like being in a fucking crazy K hole. People making shit up left right and centre. Any piece of info uber analysed. Names made up from nothing. Every bit of ITK scrutinised to the umpth degree. And still we are none the wiser. 16 pages of nothing but poo poo. And still I read it all. It's 04:00 here. The crickets are still screaming. It's 29 degrees and I am pretty sideways. But I still log on for the crumpet of information. I love you all. Probably more now. Than I will in three hours time. Keep up the good work SC you crazy bastards.

I'm out x

The last few pages of guesses that aren't actually guesses but repeats of previous posts, made by the same posters, have been riveting.

I've given up trying to understand the mentality here, that would take a battery of shrinks and even they would probably have a thread on dribblingidiotcommunity full of guesses as to what is actually wrong with you upstairs. But seeing as we're 'guessing' i'll kick off by suggesting some of you almost certainly have six toes on each foot and three adams apples, there's probably a handful suffering from penis angst, three of you are out on license under the care in the community scheme and five of you were dropped on your heads as a baby. The rest were probably brought up on too many E numbers.

Just curious please don't murder me! Did info of gards 'info' make it to you? Or it did and was deemed unworthy?

Sorry A&C. Just to add a caveat no deal is agreed. But Villa want him and have been encouraged by the club and player
