Any transfer news 🤔

Besides the London papers who have sold maguire to man city for £80 million, and secured him a 5yr contract on
285.000 a week,
I suppose the signing fee will keep them going for another year 🤦‍♂️😁
Is there any news and any players coming or going?
We could definitely do with clearing some out,

Telegraph 🤔 Lcfc 😊 or Sun 😂🤣😂

Some interesting points Mersey. Of our better players Harry is probably the easiest to replace and £80M is a ridiculous fee for someone who is nowhere near the level of VVD (defensively at least), so there is certainly temptation there.

On the other hand keeping him would send out a strong statement of intent and he fits fine in our back line as a more attacking foil to the very defensively competent Evans.

BS - what about Mersey's point, if we had £80M to spend do you have much confidence it would be re-invested wisely given our track record with big money purchases?

BS - Certainly he's not worth that. What's starting to concern me a bit is our other CB options.
Evans is rather injury-prone, including during matches.
Morgan is hardly the future.
Soyuncu is liked by some but doesn't convince me greatly and there are rumours linking him to a move back to Turkey.
Benkovic seems to be made of glass.

If we were to sell Maguire, I think we would need to buy. Although maybe it could wait until January.

I know that the present-day footwear is a lot more lightweight than when I were a lad but shoes? Surely not

Benkovic is the new Maldini, but he’s made of crisps and sellotape. The fact that’s Soyuncu is being linked away to me suggests that we’d replace Maguire if he left and there would be Evans, Morgan, Maguire/New Maguire and Benkovic vying for the 2 spaces.

Not interested in the new Adidas Copa Brogues or Nike Mercurial-Loafer.

Frank Lampard will clearly have all his players in a personalised Chelsea Boot.

Derby’s Derbies the clear choice for The Rams.

It’s a tough question to answer guys. Our track record with big money signing since the title win has been hopeless. I’m not saying it’s all down to Walsh leaving but at least he seemed to have the final say (or joint final say) and seemed to be able to vet the scouted players more effectively.

With Congerton now at the helm we could be guilty of making more expensive mistakes. If it’s a toss up between £80m badly spent and keeping Maguire then yes I’d definitely keep Maguire

However a poor track record in recruitment if not addressed will be our undoing eventually one way or the other

I’ve heard we’ve incoming of James Justin from Luton, full back can play either side, only young so probably just a back up for now.

Interesting signing. Probably means that:
A) He's going to be brought on longer term because we don't believe Fuchs and Chilwell will be here long term;
B) Amartey's likely stuffed.

I’ll really miss Amartey

Have we created a bidding war between Utd and City for Maguire, now reported Utd have put in a raised £70 million bid for him.
