    Ibrahima Diallo

    We've offered €16m apparently.

    Joining Leipzig. Excellent signing for them.
  3. Starts for Juve today against Cagliari in Serie A. Imagine this is very unlikely now.
  4. Upamecano is a bad shout. Horrific injury record.
  5. Honestly, the more I think it through the more sense it makes, I think it'd help at both ends of the pitch. Demiral fits the mould of a typical Leicester signing in being young, playing senior international football and coming with a good reputation, but importantly it'd give us flexiblity in being able to apply 3-5-2 more regularly with three top class CBs. We'd be able to get better attacking width from Chilwell & more crucially Ricardo if we didn't fancy the Barnes/Perez combination which in all honestly hasn't been prolific, though not a disaster either. If we can't secure a top class winger in this window (which will be difficult) then this might be the best idea for Rodgers. I'm not sure how it would affect Vardy by playing two up top frequently, but ultimately it at least gives us a different option and we can play Perez & Iheanacho in their more natural positions. The main plus here though is that we'd have the chance to rotate between Soyuncu/Evans/Demiral even if we continue to play with two CBs, and we'd not rely on the ageing Morgan as third choice (who is likely to leave us in the summer) and Benkovic can go on loan to a Championship club to get some much needed first team football. Demiral is keeping De Ligt out of the Juve team at present but he's Juve's second highest earner behind Ronaldo, so transfer fee aside Sarri is under massive pressure to get the best out of him alongside Chiellini (with Bonucci third choice). I think Sarri actually said he was being rested as he's played a lot of football over the last calendar year. I think Juve want around €40m for us to form the potential Turkish Wall so I assume that's why we initially offered a loan with an option to buy, but let's see what happens. I'd rather go with quality at a higher price than an average back up who'll still cost £15m+. Competition for places is a good thing, which you can't say we have right now at CB.
  6. Leipzig will fancy the tie just as much as Spurs.
  7. Comfortable for Joshua, kept Ruiz at bay. If he gets the Fury fight late next year I fear for him though.
  8. We won't be pushed around, we're not Southampton. They opened their doors to the big clubs and were taken apart (Mane, Van Dijk, Lovren etc.) so it was impossible for them to keep finding relatively hidden gems to replace them; now look. We dragged Mahrez by his ankles back onto the pitch when he kicked off and we still got £60m. The point with the Riyad transfer is we made a massive statement that we won't be bullied by the 'big clubs' - pay on our terms or get stuffed. When Man Utd came sniffing for Maguire we wanted a world record fee for a defender and we got it; £80m upfront. Is he worth it? No. Could we demand the fee? Absolutely. We won't sell anyone in January, not a chance & the players will know that. In the summer? If you want to pay the inflated price we set then fine, but it's on our terms. Hopefully we'll have a few busy Tuesday/Wednesday nights under the lights pencilled in for next season anyway.
  9. Err...so Leuven were playing against St. Gilloise and the game was called off at 0-0 due to constant power cuts. The floodlights couldn't stay on so it was abandoned in the 52nd minute from what I've read. Very weird. Not sure if the game will be rearranged or whether Leuven will forfeit the match? I've seen both options posted online.
  10. I thought I'd seen it all but to defend Vardy's dive against West Ham is unbelievably daft.
  11. Same fee as Maguire please. Is he worth it? Absolutely not. Are the 'big' English clubs stupid enough to pay it? Absolutely.
  12. This fella can control the ball with his chest expertly. Classy player who keeps the tempo high. I'd play him instead of Tielemans at present. Praise the Lord that tackle didn't snap his leg.
  13. Just let one in but still 2-1 up with 15 to go. Fingers crossed.
