Who do you want Summer 2020

Recommended Posts

If Castagne, Fofana and Under were pur only business this window  I would be happy with that. 

 

I understand the financial implications of the pandemic and as a minimum, its adequate. Three quality players in positions we need quality players, LB, CB and RW. It doesn't just improve our squad but our starting eleven. 

 

However.....

 

If I was to be a bit greedy, one more signing would make a good window  a great window. 

 

Either McNeil or Eduoard would be outstanding. A LW player for depth and competition to Barnes OR a quality striker who could (on paper) inherit Vardys spot. 

 

Not sure which one I would prefer to be honest....

With Under incoming, surely a chance to actually play Perez in his correct position?

Radical, crazy thinking I know.

Under is certainly going to be the main player at RW and be given every chance to prove he should be.  That makes Perez basically a backup to Maddison and Vardy, which I think is perfectly fine as those are his natural positions.  Not every player is going to be happy but we're going to be playing a lot of football, and BR must rotate the squad more than he did last season.

Agree, but would love Trincao on a similar deal to Under. Loan with an obligation to buy, as my lperfect window.

Going around again that Jovic could be available for loan

 

Someone that we should definitely take a look at

If we are serious about improving our options up front we will be involved in this. Loan with an option to buy for £35m next summer. Would be sensational.

Same agent as under too.

Wages are 170k a week though.


Real Madrid , could offset half his wages or even more I would have thought? 
 

I reckon we would be interested; if we offload Slimani, Silva and co; would free up wages to bring him in.

With Madrid having paid €60m for him I imagine they would probably be looking at €40m-50m for a permanent fee

 

But still with the rumoured fee of £40m for Edouard it looks like that is the kind of fee we are going to have to end up paying for a quality striker anyway

Agree with this, 100%.

The only problem with that would be that we were then limiting our options for next year. 

 

If we had obligations of Jovic for £35m and Under for £25m, that £60m before THIS window has closed, we wouldn't really be in a position to do much more next year unless ofcourse we done similar type deals and kicked the fees on to the year after that.

Aside from (imo) a keeper to challenge Kasper, we're not looking too bad going into next summer's transfer window (assuming we get our CB & Under in). The only area is LB, which is clearly being covered temporarily this season between Justin/Timmo/Fuchs

Ricardo will be off for £60m + in the summer if we don't get top 4 (highly unlikely)

I suppose this all makes sense. 

 

We go into that year and off the bat spend the £60m on Jovic and Under who hopefully are just off the back of a good season, immediately break even with the sale of Ricardo, Castagne moves to his preffered RB and that then leaves us to go get a LB which we could prob dip into a net spend of £30n or so which would get you someone top class.

Not sure how comfortable I am with us getting in to bed with Fali Ramadani to be honest. He's still under investigation for the Jovic deal!

In:

Centre back - Fofana £25m 

Fullback - Castagne £21m ✔️
Winger - Ünder -  Loan to permanent ✔️
Winger - Ounas or Buendia £12m

Total spend £58m

 

Out:

Chilwell £50m ✔️
Silva £7m 
Slimani £5m

Total Income £62m

 

We could actually make a profit of £4m this window lol

You are missing the apparent £3m loan fee for this season for Ünder and remains to be seen if get a fee for Silva and or Slimani.
 

However, if all that happens it would make for a fantastic window, with possibly room for a net spend towards a striker or left back towards the end of the transfer window.

Very true but that would leave a net spend of £1m. The Silva & Slimani fee’s I got of previous links for the duo.

Be tempted with another CB rather than another Winger, we do still have Rachid let us not forget  :mellow:

Ryan Sessegnon from spuds anyone? Only 20 attack minded LB/LWB option, could push Justin to CB in the interim. Could be attainable if Spuds sign bale & Sergio R, his playing time reduces and Mourinho doesn't develop young players anymore.

 

Think Brendan could work his magic here.

 

We should be all over this.
