Only remembered yesterday that the PL clubs voted to end the window before the season started this time.

Just 29 days left until it SLAMS shut, and it feels like it hasn't really started yet.

it's going to go absolutely nuts isn't it?! :lol:

Madrid with 100 mill to spend (Hazard? Kane? Salah?) is going to heat things up a touch

been a lot of talk of them trying to sign Mmbop from PSG (or is it Monaco as he is on loan for 1st year). The talk is that PSG have indicated that they may be willing to sell.

His career took a wrong turn - Liverpool were in for him before he signed for Dortmund, where he hardly played.

You think they'll sell two million replicas in a year?

Ok then.

Real made €100m in shirt sales in his first year there. It's not unfeasable Juve could as well. They are the most popular team in Italy.

People who will buy shirts with Ronaldo 7 on the back:

Juve fans
Ronaldo fans
Portugese fans

They will sell a metric ton in Asia. This is a massive marketing move but unlike most 33 year olds, they have signed one who is arguably playing better than ever and evolved his game to suit his age. He will score for fun next year.

Jean Michel Seri to.....Fulham!
Chelsea thought they had him a couple of days ago, Liverpool were sniffing around last summer, and Barcelona too. That's one hell of a coup for Tony Khan and Fulham.

I think it has something do with Chelsea seemingly bringing in Sarri as manager and Jorginho is coming with him.

Give's them a different option on a bargain I suppose. Useful squad addition.

So long as he's not a colossal pcunt.

Seems like a decent enough option

Whether he’s up to the Liverpool challenge is another thing tho’

Thought he might’ve ended up at a Wolves type team...good luck to him and his bank account

absolute bargain at 12million based on his good days

is he going to put the work in required by Klopp?

dunno...

Also, don't know how (or who) this affects in terms of developing younger players

I think he'll do well in Scotland. Do suspect hell be torn a new arsehole in the 4 games that matter though. Shows what's bit of Champions League money can do in a shit league.

On a slightly related note, I see that Southampton are still funding Celtic's transfer spending.
