    Was actually going to make a thread, but was curious on how everyone would feel about it.




    Apparently he's one of Lille's top players and getting him for 5m is a steal

    A few days ago Dortmund signed Ivan Perisic from Club Brugge. He was the leading scorer in the Belgian league as a midfielder this season. He's 22 and has just broken into the Croatian NT. Given Dortmund's recent track record, he will probably be a star in a year or two.

    dortmund is a sick club... just started learning about them the past couple years so i dont wanna just jump on the bandwagon when they win the league (plus i kind of had werder bremen and hamburg as my top two choices to start cheering for) but i love the way they run things and their fans/stadium is badass. still dont really have a bundesliga team i pledge allegiance to though

    All but a done deal. He's spent the last 5 seasons on loan, playing for QPR for 2 and Wolves for 3.

    Supposedly Ashley Young has agreed to come to Old Trafford, but the reports seem premature to say for sure.

    Also hoping if we do want to get Modric, toss in Berbatov to help lower the fee.

    I'm going to be so pissed if we sell modric. If we sell him for less than €30 m I'll be even more irate. He's worth way more to our team than bale who no one is going to come close to his asking price, injury or not.

    But seriously, fuck that. Agree with you totally BH. Would rather cut Bale loose for 35-40 if we can get it and invest in 2 or 3 solid additions than get rid of Luka. I don't want to get rid of either, but if I had to it would be Bale. He doesn't contribute as much overall as Luka and he would get a higher price for us to invest with.
