Watched this then checked him out on Transfeemrket. Would never have guessed he was a CF from this video. He comes very deep (yes, I said "he comes very deep" but let's try and by adults here)

Me neither. Thought he was left wing/ Cam. 6'2"! 10.8 M on Transfermarkt, so that probably means more like 20 M. According to futwiz he gets equal rating anywhere in attack and midfield apart from CDM. Only 18 and already played for the national team. It's a definite yes from me.

Not going to lie - I never know half the players listed on these things. Bardhi, Argie and Bargie. All the same to me. There's some players I'd like but until they're in a City shirt I try not to get my hopes up for stuff. Take them as I see them.

Alex Collado has signed a new deal with Barca, I can see them being open to selling Trincao to us this summer. Still think we'll look to do a loan with an obligation to buy but much more likely to happen now.

Imagine we'll aim for a similar situation to how we loaned Under.

We offered them a 2 year loan and €45m obligation to buy. Quite an unusual deal but baring in mind we seldom offer over £30m for a player just shows how much we wanted him.

So would make huge sense if we were to go back again.

ryan gravenburch apparently available at 30 million would be an incredible signing

He'll probably end up at Liverpool, a replacement for Wijnaldum/Keita.

Makes sense but the obligation to buy could be a tough one for us if he ends up not being as good as we thought. Imagine we had an obligation to buy Under when he's not really done enough. We'd have all been fuming if we were being forced to sign Under now. Hopefully our scouting team have full confidence he will be good enough and is coachable.

I agree, but I think that offer last summer when the club will have known about the losses to our 2019/20 accounts shows that we were willing to invest but obviously we want to kick the costs down the road. We were seemingly going to do that for Ünder who was our back up option to Trincao but the masterstroke seems to be in the last min agreement to an option to buy instead.

They tried everything to land Trincao last year but failed due to all the politics and BS going on at his club. Anyone know how he’s performed this year and whether he’s had much game time ?

Used mostly from the bench rather than as a first team starter but there's no chance we sign him, he's been called out time and again to be an important project piece for them, and has impressed several times since joining, plus has become a fully fledged international. 

 

It's a shame we didn't get him because I think he'd have had the same sort of impact Fofana did. Credit to the scouting team, but not much they could have done, Barcelona got him first!

 

Hopefully we have one or two more "top secret" signings lined up for the forthcoming season. Players like the Turkish defender come across as more exciting to me; it's the unknown players that always seem to be the spectacular ones for us.

Trincão to England?

Such a scenario could pave the way for Francisco Trincão to leave Camp Nou this summer, and according to a story in El Confidencial the club’s feeling at present is that the former Braga man does not fit into their plans as they assess major changes this summer. Coach Ronald Koeman has implemented a system with less emphasis on natural wide players, reducing Trincão’s chances of playing time.

According to El Confidencial, big earners Antoine Griezmann and Phillipe Coutinho will be made available, while the club will look to take advantage of interest in Trincão in England to facilitate his sale. Jorge Mendes’ strong ties with Premier League clubs is seen as a useful aspect in making the player’s departure a realistic option.   

Leicester City are long-term admirers if Trincão, having tried to sign the 21-year-old numerous times already in his young career. Catalan reports last summer indicated that The Foxes tried no less than three times to instigate negotiations to bring the Portuguese to England before he had even kicked a ball for Barcelona, and should Brendan Rodgers’ team secure Champions League football it is expected they would head the queue this summer.

I think he'll move clubs in the summer, Barca are chaos.

This sounds a lot like the StriderHiryu guide to dating, IE desperation :whistle:

Generally players we've chased for ages turn out to be naff. 

Evans the most obvious example, clearly not naff. Maguire we were after for years at two different clubs. Dragovic was decent. Mendy was a long-term Ranieri favourite who turned out value for money in the end, as did Gray and Amartey. The club wanted Okazaki in the January before we got him too. Castagne meanwhile was wanted by Rodgers and Congerton at Celtic 2 years ago.

 

Musa, Slimani and Silva are all clearly failures, but they were just shit in general.

 

Not really sure you can come to any conclusion about long-term vs short-term targets on that lot.
