There’s still no advanced negotiation for Jesse Lingard as of now. He has chances to stay if James leaves.

£20m plus addons I’ve read just now.

Shame for the lad but he’s not really improved since he signed. Had potential, but not for a top side I don’t think
----------------------------------------------------------------------
He’s got an ok goal record. In a side he will given more space I can see him being a 10-15 goal a season player. Bit like Lingard really.

Something like 9 goals in 70 odd games. It's not that okay of a record considering we're a counter attacking side and he's got pace for days.

Probably in the minority on here but I quite liked Dan James... While also admitting he's not top quality

He's no world beater, but I wish Martial had his attitude and workrate

Imo he'll end up a decent enough Premier league player... And he's better getting games elsewhere than sitting on our bench

30mill! About tike we hoodwinked someone, he's awfull technically and ole pandering to him a few years bk when he actually started his career well for us calling him the best defensive winger in the world whatever that means probably didnt help

Would hope him well but he's going leeds so we'll just leave it at that

Yes, praise from manager to one of his staff is sure fire way to stunt their development and decrease their skill levels. Especially when it is Ole doing the praising!

There are a few teams who sold players to us who they thought weren’t much good, but Bielsa has a knack for turning them into superstars. Ayling, Klich, Meslier, Dallas, Bamford and more.Perhaps James hasn’t reached his full potential just yet. One thing is for sure, this is not a panic buy, and it’s not a punt on player who is good on his day. It’s more likely that Bielsa wants to move Raph into the forward midfield where he can score more goals, while adding pace to the right wing. Bielsa wanted James two years ago, and he tends to show good judgement in the market. Watch this space.

Good luck to the lad, put in his all and had some decent games.... couldn't nail down a place and should do well at leeds. Good fee too... Good for all!

Think you might want to read up on the definition of superstars, if half your team are superstars you should be pushing for the league

Superstars is the wrong word, but you get his point. He gets his team to perform above the sum of the parts.

Maybe 5m too much, but Bielsa wanted him and WILL improve him. Will be a good signing for us.

When you sell a player for 1.5m and buy him back for 90m, then he turns out to be bang average anyway, I’m afraid you have to room to gloat.

You’re paying one player half a million a week, at 36. I’m glad we’ll never reach your levels, you’re a brand, not a club.

Really confused by this transfer to be honest.
