    (I assume you are mostly joking)FWIW he signed a year contract extension in March and was starting to find himself in the Ole era...

    Got 13 starts and a few goals for PSG this season. Pretty much means Javi Martinez will be sold this summer.

    UEFA said they want the window closed for all member leagues by October 5th.

    WOTS is that it will open in England on Sunday, July 26.

    Official from Pep’s mouth but everyone has known this was coming eventually.

    More likely, Bayern make another lowball offer and Sané goes for a free Summer 21

    Definitely digging into the weeds here but if you like that kind of stuff he does a good job in this thread explaining the new FFP coronavirus restrictions and uses the big 6 in England to do a deep dive.

    this is really a swap deal with hugely inflated prices on both sides. Seems more like FFP manipulation as far as the “fees” since they get to book a lot of the sale price on this years books and then get to spread the high purchase price of the new player over his contract. Would expect a few more of these inflated price swaps this summer.

    isn't FFP suspended essentially for a couple of years?

    not really. They are combining last year and this year and stretching out the years over the next few so if you have a big loss this year but some positive years last/next year you are fine. And they are allowing adjustments this year. If you’ve had as many cripplingly bad transfers as Barca have though you still made need to cook the books some.
