Like to see us going for Mbappe
Young, Pep style of player, ready made replacement for Sergio when he goes and would seem to for with Jesus
Fuck Mahrez we dont need more wide players and he's not worth 75 mill,give Roberts or that Stockport lad a few games in the cups while resting Sane, Sterling

Both
He's played centrally, He's still developing and could be the new Pele.

19 years old, 21 goals and 16 assists in about 45 games

Looking like Mahrez and Jorginho. Will come in for big money. Good players, but have to say I'm a little underwhelmed. I'm surprised given our stock is so high with Pep, the football we play and our record breaking title win that we're not going all out for a superstar to kick us to the next level both on and off the field.

Think Pep will have done his homework on these two and how he plans to fit them into the squad

Superstars with big egos is not always the answer ( Pogba)

so expect him to count goals in dreams and kicking a coke can into a drain towards his 1000

There are good players out there but many would not fit the Pep mould of team first and hard work every game.

Mbappe would be a lovely signing. That said I think the key now we have Jorginho and Mahrez almost in the bag is building on the immense success of this relatively young team. The prospects are mouth-watering after a season of football bliss.

I was gonna say advertise viagra, but yeah, we'll go with that!

I've heard him described as the new Henry.

We don't appear to be likely to go down the route of signing one big player. We've been signing players at around the same level and have produced an excellent team as a result. Yes, we have stars but not to the level that Mbappe etc would cost. In many ways that is a good thing. I don't think any of our players feel head and shoulders above the rest of the team. It is great that our assists and goals are so widely spread. The focus has to be on having a great team not great players.

Could be argued though that Barca wouldnt have been so dominant without  their star player Messi

Same goes for Real

We don't have to be the same as them Nimmers. I feel that our policy of signing young, established and still up and comers or players at their peak at around £50 million is going great at the mo. I'd rather not rely on one man.

All good points Gav. I’m just not sure the two players linked are quite at the level we should be looking but time will tell I guess.

Mbappe though is one I’d break the bank for. At his age he’s be with us for years and his physical attributes are just what we are lacking up front. Especially with Sergio more than likely to leave in the next 1-2 years.

I reckon Dzeko would do well in our team now.

Not that he didn't before mind you.

Barce got messi as a young kid, so didn't really buy him as a star player

Linked with Kroos today and Gundog linked to barce. Fair swap I'd say :-D
