I wonder if Levy put Utd off by saying if you want any chance of signing Eriksen this summer, then you do not take advantage of Alderweireld's £25m release clause. Taking 2 players off us within a few months would cause a meltdown.

I'm sure Toby's agent has reassured him that in just a few months he'll have a lucrative pre-contract deal lined up - possibly with Utd. Toby will be cool with that, but it is pretty disgraceful it has come to this.
I don’t think he can sign a pre-contract domestically.

He's not going to sign a pre contract with anyone, he'll either wait until the end of the season and let the auction begin or he'll go back to Ajax.

I wonder with all of this going on and if we do sign those special players could this make Toby stay with us and sign a new deal? Here’s to hoping

To get him to sign a new deal now we'd need to give him a £20M signing on fee and £180k+ a week wages. No way we should do that for a player the wrong side of 30 when we have an international CB ready to take his place in Sanchez (plus potentially Dier once he realises he isn't getting many minutes in CM).

I'm quite happy if Toby gives us 1 more season, I rank this higher than any new signings.

A good team starts at the back.

Why would Roma be keen to get a deal done today, when their window doesn't shut for 2 weeks? Plus the price probably drops from tomorrow as all the potential English suitors are out of the reckoning.

I think this guys long range passing is the best of any defender - always dangerous always finding his man (apart from the ambitious behind the defender type passing)

Would love to find a way to get him and Eyoma some real minutes this season. Not sure that’s possible with us. Defenders need to play. These guys do seem to have a lot of potential.
might be an option to try these players out if we are facing a lower league team in the domestic cups, that's what Man C do

Thought he was massive yesterday. Outside of Aguero's goal he was all over the place making interceptions and blocks.
