Jack Celliers There were too many mentions of Dembele and Pogba in what I have read about him. He'll come to the Premier League and something won't be right. He'll stay in the side playing badly until Christmas and go on loan next season.


No chance. He's not a Bakayoko.

It's a class signing, and Spurs do need him, having lost Dembele.

BR0B0T Think Maguire will end up at United for 75M


In this day and age I don't see that as too bad a figure to be honest.

He's been largely excellent and is probably just the type of player United need. His performance against City towards the end of last season was so good and he's at a great age to step up a level too.

Is he as good as VvD? Nope, I wouldn't say he is, but he's better than most central defenders who could be brought and he has experience of the Premier League and has performed well in it for 3 seasons. He isn't just a flash in the pan who's got lucky playing in a decent side for 6 months.

exactly my reasoning...would rather Koulibally, Varrane or Skriniar etc but they're difficult to get

Prem proven, dominant in the air and what you said!

I've read that Varrane's buy out clause is something like £400m. Good luck with that...

Koulibally looks like he'd be a great signing. Expensive, but looks the part. He'd likely cost a chunk more than Maguire, and there's the risk he might struggle to adapt to the Premier League, but on paper he'd probably be the first choice out of those that could be available for United.

release clauses are a legal requirement in Spanish contracts so you find many of the top players just have them set at a silly number so as to remove them from the conversation. The figure inserted in isn't the fee that the club wants, it just puts the power in the selling clubs hands to demand whatever they want. Went a bit wonky with Neymar though obv :lol:

I believe release clauses are against the law in France (though a few players have reportedly signed side agreements which basically amount to release clauses)

The article that mentioned the value of the clause also said that Real weren't going to be listening to any offers that didn't trigger it because Zidane made it clear that he didn't want to lose Varrane (who'd made some noises about maybe leaving this summer).

Of course it's unlikely they'd turn down an offer of £350m for him, or even £250m perhaps, but it was more to add a little context to the conversation of who might be available for United.

Italian media reporting that Buffon's new contract at Juve says he must play 8 games so that he overtakes Maldini as the record appearance holder.

Seems mentz to have something like that which can actually potentially impact on team performances / results

Juve have title sewn up after 30 games. Buffon plays the last 8 but would expect him to start next season, he is still better than their other options.

If you are a processional footballer at the top level, especially a centre back which is the easiest position to play in the world, and you cannot adapt to doing your job which is the same thing, you shouldn't be a footballer.

Sergio Reguillon joins Sevilla on loan from Real Madrid.

Whilst Martin Ødegaard is loaned to Real Sociedad. The club wanted Ødegaard to join Bayer Leverkusen but the player wanted to join La Real.

I know he is only 20, but not kicked on as some predicted. Was Real really the right club for him to go to?

Not everyone is Mbappe. Ødegaard had a really good season last year at Vitesse and was one of the best and most creative players in the Dutch League. He really progressed last year.

He is progressing well and Madrid are happy with him.


Florentino Perez Odegaard came at 16 and now he’s 20. He was among the 2-3 best players in the Dutch league this year. In 2-3 years, he will be one of the stars of Real Madrid.
