    God tier moves from Zizou. Probably doubled his last pay check, gets 3 months to rebuild the team with no pressure, gets a huge check book in the summer, all after taking a 9 month vacation and letting two other managers who had stars in their eyes eat all the shit that had piled up at the club.

    So did he leave after Ronaldo to Juve was done? Did he tell them hey I need more than a Vinicious to replace Crissy and was told no so he bounced?

    The Sun’s predicted XI for ‘20 is quite cute

    De Gea; Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Varane, Reguilón; Pogba, Kante, Eriksen; Neymar, Mbappé and Hazard.

    Chile and I were just laughing at that and figured that it'd be close to €1.1B (or more) to get that done.

    de Gea still hasn't signed an extension and he expires after next year, right? If so, probably not getting more than ~50 for him, I'd think. Maybe 70?

    Has been rumored for a while but it sounds like it'll be made official shortly. xec how should we feel about this? He's being brought in to play as a CB correct?

    That’s his forte. He is right footed and can play RB if needed. He’s an up and coming star imo. If RM is in need of a young quality CB, then this is an excellent move. He can score too. He got called up to the Brazilian senior team last year and, I believe, played in a game. I hate to see Porto lose him tbh. But that’s their business model: Identify and obtain future stars, mentor and develop them, then sell them for a huge profit.

    It's official, 6 year deal. He's a year or two older than Vallejo but far more developed, hopefully he becomes what they hoped JV would be.

    Nice to see this version of Marcelo back.

    Bale has been outstanding today and should probably have at least 1 more.

    Nothing definitive. Was supposedly on the shortlist of summer targets but all indications are that Zidane will have the final say on transfers.

    My guess is that with Hazard likely to join and Zidane rating Isco & Asensio that he's likely a long shot. If either of those two were to leave he might be be more of a target but its sounding like Kante and Pogba are the midfielders at the top of his wishlist. A replacement for Bale and a #9 are the top priorities for the summer so I wouldn't worry about Real calling unless several guys are moved.

    I don't see them spending that type of money on him. If they're breaking the bank it's for Mbappe (or to a lesser degree Pogba)
