Title: Transfer thread
Post by: lee on June 20, 2022, 12:43:30
Might as well start off the gossip.

Rumours that we are heavily linked with Phillips at Leeds,Cucurella at Brighton and today Kieran Tierney at Arsenal..Tierney has always looked tidy to me but injured a lot.

Sounds like Jesus and Sterling are both on the way out.

Don't think that I'd want to lose both Sterling and Jesus. One or the other maybe. A left back and a defensive midfielder seem to be the main requirements. Work needs to be complete soon. Training must start in a couple of weeks now!

Maybe making room for Alvarez?

New left back and replacement for Fern for me.

Chelsea buzzing around Sterling and Laporte!! Also Silva to Barca as mentioned elsewhere..They will need a ton of cash for him.Cant let him go.

No fooking way can Laporte go. Ruben, Laporte, Stones, Ake. If one goes then we need to buy a centre half. Why would we create a new hole to fill?

Sadly the club and clubs in general have little option but to let players go if they want and best that can be achieved is to get a good transfer fee.

Press is full of crap, so don’t believe it. I can see Bernardo, Jesus & Raheem leaving but any more would be a massive overhaul of the squad. Bernardo because he wants out, he wants to go to Barca and they want and desperately need him. Sadly.

Phillips deal agreed? Seems a decent price, a lot to live up to if comparing to Dinho. Darko Gyabi goes to Leeds as part of the deal.

KP is a really good signing especially for the future.

Our transfer business is going really smoothly this year. I presume just Cucurella to come next week and all set for a good pre-season.

Another one with shite hair. We know how to pick them. Honestly, I've not paid much attention to him as a player and not noticed him stand out like Rice at West Ham. But he would have been double the money. I trust in Pep's judgement.

Be like the hair bear bunch at City next season

Not so sure about him but in Pep we trust

I hadnt thought of the hair aspect but with Cucurella, the hair bear bunch is apt, local barbers will be coining it in, or are they called tonsorial artists for the wealthy.

With Philips and Cucurella it will be.Lets hope Jack does not fancy the same doo.

After Cucurella just one signing to complete. A  very critical and important one, an extension to Guardiola’s contract.

City have just posted his highlights of the season

https://www.mancity.com/citytv/mens/gabriel-jesus-best-of-2021-22-63791849

He had a very good season. Probably better on the wing than as a striker.

His best moment at City is the goal at Southampton to clinch 100 points. What a lovely finish that was.

Ake to Chelsea seems to be next and Sterling seems to want to run his contract down.Lets see if City cash in on him.

Seems like Spurs are about to shell out £50mil to Everton for  Richarlison - if that goes through and Sterling leaves City this window, I certainly hope we won’t take any less than Richarlison’s price tag, wherever he goes.

I know there's a lot of money in these transfers now but they seem to go at a glacial pace. Jesus still not officially at Arsenal.

That seems to be the new confirmation of signing. They're fitted and kitted before it is announced. Good luck to him.

Busy morning.

Jesus confirmed to Arse and Kalvin Phillips officially signed.
Title: Re: Transfer thread
Post by: Hesperus on July 04, 2022, 10:23:32
Good luck to Jesus. I was never sold on him as a striker but he always put the effort in.

Not sure on Phillips, we need a replacement for Dino but I’ve never been impressed with Phillips when I’ve watched him play. Seemed a bit slow to me. As with most new players under Pep. He’ll need at least a season to settle so won’t be judging him too soon. Good luck though Kalvin hope you do the business and win a few titles!

Phillips vid is due and is linked below.

Some good Fernandinho like stuff in there. Some lovely passes. No sign of the Rodri shots though.

I like the look of this guy. I think he could run Rodri close or play along side him. To me he seems a bit like Gundogan, with added defensive abilities. If we get the LB from Brighton, I think we've nailed this window.

Agree...Cucurella will complete the hairbear bunch.
