    The rumour is that his agent is trying to encourage bids from teams that have expressed an interest in the past, including City and Madrid. If that happens then presumably we have no chance, particularly if Levy pulls his usual stunts. I can't say I've ever seen Ndombele play (I'm guessing he played in the City games last season but if he did he didn't stand out to me) but the people in the know reckon he is a real elite level player who could play for any top side.

    Other news: no one is interested in taking Janssen or Nkoudou off us. Shocking.

    Everyone's been banging on about him all season. He's considered as one of the best young box to box midfielders on the market at the moment. Having seen a bits of him for France, I'd say he does look like a quality signing for whoever ends up getting him. I doubt Juve would get him though cuz they're about to sign Rabiot on a free, on top of the already stacked midfield they have (and they're still trying to bring Pogba back there as well).

    I'd love United to sign him but it seems like everyone is rejecting us this summer.

    Supposedly talks are at an advanced stage and he wants to come, but there's really no precedent for us managing to sign a really hyped player for big money so it's difficult to believe it. I'm sure we'll sign someone this summer as it would be crazy not to at least tread water, but I suspect we will be buying from the next level down as we always have previously - wouldn't be surprised if we came back in for Grealish and Zaha, although I don't really know with regard to the defensive midfielder position.

    Interesting comparison to Tottenham's recent lack of transfer activity - I'm reading a book about the fall-out from Cantona's kung-fu kick at the moment, and was surprised to read that United went two years (July 1994 to June 1996) signing only one player, Andy Cole.

    Spurs had bid accepted and talk is Jack Clarke will sign soon after. Looked good in his cameo against Derby in what I think was January. Doubt he'll get much time at Spurs though

    I reckon we'll get Bruno Fernandes done this summer, he should be a good addition to the midfield. Don't know why we're not getting Alderweireld done. £25m for a top class center back should be a no brainer with the situation we're in.

    Alderweireld's release clause doesnt kick in until 1st July, so I'm expecting rumours to pick up from tomorrow. But having said that, the only thing we can offer Toby at the moment is a lot of money. For footballing reasons, it makes more sense for him to stay at Spurs than to come here. I suppose we could guarantee him more game time, but I dont think he's our first choice CB signing this summer.
    Plus he only has one more year left on his contract. It's starting to become a thing now where players intentionally run their contracts down so that they could sign for another team on really high wages, since they dont have to pay a transfer fee. Team's like Juventus are willing to pay 400k a week to someone like Ramsey, purely because he's free. Toby could easily get a big money offer if he ran his contract down after another years with Spurs in the Champion's League.

    Be honest do you keep calling him Toby because his surname is a pain in the arse to type?

    Be nice if the Lampard thing was sorted soon. Have a feeling it wont be though

    Meh the only thing that has amused me throughout the last few days of this has been Rob Dorsett on twitter blocking the 'haters'

    Heard Phillip Cocu is now our target.

    What a fucking disaster the Manchester United ticket sales were. Bought a membership a while back thinking that would be the way to get guaranteed pair of tickets. That was a lie. Because the whole trip is based around these tickets I’ve ended up spending a stupid amount to get the VIP hospitality packages just to make sure I have tickets to see them. Atmosphere around these seats are likely going to be shite.

    Rumours that Man Utd are interested in McGinn for £50m must be a joke.

    £11m rising to £17m if he gets World Player Of The Year and a Golden Boot in the same season.

    All our signings have an average age of 24 and are all seen as "investable assets" by the looks of it. Glad we aren't going for over the hill cunts looking for a pay packet way past their best at the moment.

    Matt Targett could be really good from what I've seen of him, sounds like a lot of money right now but I think he's been a bit unlucky in that he was stuck behind Shaw and then Bertrand, who tbh probably isn't any better than him. Regular starter at Villa and I think that price could look very reasonable soon.

    That is about as official as you can get. I still can't believe they actually pulled it off.

    Bloke on SSN saying how Frank was talking with Chelsea before he went on hols, despite that being before we gave permission I mean the whole thing has stunk for weeks but still

    Anyway the main reason I came here was I was watching the transfer show thingy they do now earlier and they were talking Bruno Fernandes to Man Utd and how Sporting will not honour the release clause in Brunos contract as they want more cash, Surely they don't have a fucking choice?

    Apparently the Lampard/Cocu announcements delayed due to fb/instagram being down. Modern football ffs

    Depends on how legally enforceable it is. Liverpool chose not to honour the £40m clause for Suarez.

    Ralf Fahrmann is a decent pick up for Norwich, Though I can't imagine Krul is thrilled after he signed a new deal last week

    Got my tickets for Spurs/Inter in that pre season tourney thing. Looking forward to visiting the stadium for the first time. My son has shown little interest so far in football, so this may help that or he may never care. Not sure which I'd prefer, to be honest.

    Hearing Mings will be announced today/tomorrow. Cannot begin to explain how delighted I am.

    Also news out today that Stoke are holding out for £25m for Butland, despite the player wanting a move ahead of the Euros next year - and we aren't willing to pay that much for him. So it's now a waiting game for him to actually declare his intention and demand a move. Stoke already have seemingly bought his replacement so this is down to haggling now, unless someone else comes in for him. Would obviously be keen to get him, despite wanting to give Steer a go in the Prem too for what he did for us in the second half of last season.

    It's times like this that makes me so grateful for Grealish committing to us last year in the Championship, when him forcing a move to Spurs when they were sniffing around could have easily fucked us up as a club. Sold him for £20m and we'd have been midtable. What a fucking hero.

    Fair play to him, now he gets to captain his hometown club in the Prem and, if and when he does leave, he'll probably earn them double that if not more.

    Diego Costa rumoured to join Wolves. United's battle for top 6 just got even tougher.

    Is he a Mendes player? If so, it is possible.

    Costa is finished and will play about 3 games with VAR due to suspension and not playing for one of the "big" clubs.

    They signed Neves as a championship club it wouldn't surprise me if they signed anyone at this point tbh

    Looking like Konsa to Villa @The Rosk. Good move for him and with Pontus and Pinnock signed we have replacements already so works out well.

    God Arsenal are such a fucking joke. koscielny has refused to go on the tour. Laughable tbh. Squad is a fucking mess.

    Sign some defenders. Play Iwobi who is looking class atm and start again

    The fact he's your best defender should be such a fucking wake up call.

    Get rid of him and Mustafi if someone will have them

    That's weird, was there even anything linking him away from the club? Strange.

    Rennes or Lyon. Sky reporting he wants released from last year of his contract so he can go on a free.

    He's walking away to go to Rennes potentially fucking hell. He must be on a wedge and Mustafi too.

    They should go in for Alderweireld and get laughed out of the place

    That is a proper nightmare for Arsenal. Even if they don't let him go for free (and why would they, seems pretty unreasonable for him to demand it) they'll hardly get anything for him and he'd cost a fortune to replace. Which they don't have cos they're skint. And they only have one other decent defender.

    Maybe Krystian Bielik actually gets a go. The funny thing is they are siging a CB from france and loaning him back apparently... Even though they have no cash.

    Arsenal should have signed Konsa

Has massive potential but needs time to grow and when he gets more experience will be worth more than the 12m you paid. And good business for us getting 9m profit on a player with a sell on for a player we signed a year ago and already covers signing replacements.

    Apparently Emery has said he isn't part of his plans, which is odd. We want £25m for Mustafi Jokers.

    Out of our defenders only Bellerin, Sokratis and Holding are probably up to par. Monreal and Kos maybe we could get one year more from.

    Kolasinac cannot defend. Maitland-Niles is not a defender. I would probably move on Callum Chambers as he is someone we could maybe £20m for him. Mavropanos probably needs to go on loan.

    Shit show.

    Koscielny is great. Arsenal are noticeably much poorer defensively when he's not around.

    Bloody hell, Villa still signing more player. Apparently we're after Douglas Luiz for £15m now. I'm glad we are getting transfers done early and planned (not in August out of desperation) as we really needed to fill the gaps left by Hutton/Tammy/Axel/Whelan etc. Hope it all fits together nicely.

    This may be the worse summer since 96, when we were linked with Davids, Zidane and Roberto Carlos and ended up with John Lukic.

    Davids in his prime in the Premier League would have been incredible.

    Looks like we've got Maguire sorted, so our defence actually looks decent next year. DDG - AWB - Lindelof - Maguire - Shaw. Just got to worry about the rest of the team now.

    If the players are inconsistent, then the opinions on them will be as well.
