    Default 2017/18 Football Transfer Thread

    The transfer window has been open for a while now so it's probably time for a new thread.

    Milan has been throwing stacks of money at everything that moves, Everton has been very active and Arsenal have actually signed a striker after only 5 transfer windows of rumours of him coming.

    What? It's not like we're replacing France's first choice striker with the back-up.

I'd rather be any kind of bird (apart from a goose) than be you because to be you I'd have to not be me which I couldn't do unless someone else was me but then they would be you aswell so there would still be no me. They would be you because I was you so to restore balance you would have to be me and them meaning all three of us would become one continously the same. That would be very bad.

    Leicester close to Ihenacho for 25m
    We are close to Bakayoko
    Situation with Costa is as always ed up , looks like Conte is pissed at him and won't let him play for Chelsea anymore but again we won't sell him cheap , like we shouldn't
    Morata is being chased by everyone and no one
    Lewandowski might leave Bayern
    Arnautovic is wanted by West Ham
    Everton, again, wants Sigurdson but Swansea values him at 50 m
    United want Perisic
    Tottenham being strangely quite
    Celaballos or whatever from Real Betis is wanted by all top clubs in Spain
    Liverpool want Keita from Leipzig but they don't wanna sell him

    What would Tottenham need to do then? They already have a good squad so as long as no one leaves I see little reason for them to do much.

    Default Re: 2017/18 Football Transfer Thread

    Ac Milan has signed:
    -Ricardo Rodriguez, left back from Wolfsburg, 17 mil (no idea about him, never seen him play)
    -Kessie, defensive midfielder from Atalanta 20 mil (not sure about him, he had a great season, but I'm skeptical about 1 timers)
    -Musacchio, central def from Villareal 20 mil (skeptical about this guy as well, he was supposed to be a great talent 5 years ago, never delivered that much)
    -Andre Silva striker from Porto 22 mil (another young with only 1 good season behind him, though apparently Cristiano Ronaldo consider him his heir for Portugal)
    -Borini striker from Sunderland, 5 mil (good backup)
    -Conti, right back from Atalanta 10 mil up to 25 with bonuses (again young, 1 good season behind him)
    -Calhanoglu, offensive midfielder from Leverkusen, 20 mil (this is the only one I really like, great at shooting pieces, which in Serie A is a boon as most teams play defensively and focus on stalling, he can be a great match changer, consistently good in the past 3 seasons, his last one was being the best but got disqualified for 6 months for having signed a contract under 18)

    Biglia from Lazio should be next, then allegedly a top striker (Aubameyang is rumoured, I doubt it, Bellotti is too expensive as well, Morata also rumoured).
    I'm rather sure at least one of those I'm skeptical about will flop.

    Rodriguez was ace, but like the rest of the Wolfsburg team, he has been pretty poor lately. But if he can get back to his best (and I'm sure he can), he'll be a top signing. A modern left back who can contribute a lot going forward - but he had to play fb sometimes. Surprised no club snatched him before since he was on his way out for some time.
    Calhanoglu I don't see as positive, to say he had 3 consistenly good seasons is a huge stretch (his ban aside). His first season with Leverkusen has been his best. And he is a really character

    His last season was 6 goals in 15 games, which is pretty good for a midfielder. Can you expand on the last part? I'm clueless.

    Well he built up a bad reputation when he enforced his transfer from Hamburg. He had just signed a new contract, and as soon as he had his first breakthrough, he was already pretty full of himself and thought he needed to play for a bigger club asap. As HSV hesitated to let him go, he came up with a phony sick note for psychic distress to enforce the transfer.
    Sadly nothin too unusual these days, but the way a young player like him operated after only a first few good games was a thing in Germany back then.

    Yeah no. At scoring goals maybe if he has a good suport. But it is like you said he has much to prove yet. And it was 38 milion euros, and depending on objectives can go up to 40 mil.
    And no he is no Ronaldo. Doesnt mean he cant be a more than decent striker.
    It was a nice sell if you ask me. As imo, while he is good, he isnt that good. Not yet anyway.

    keep Watch of Another F.C. Porto young Striker named Rui Pedro. He is doing great at Under 19 Euro cup right now. The final will be this Saturday between Portugal under 19 vs England under 19

    Hhaha Milan is spending big after few poor seasons.
    They were bought by chinese, what you expect?! Still isnt enough to be competive. At least not right away.

    Tottenham being strangely quite
    Here in Portugal the Rumor is they are interested in Adrien from Sporting.
    Also Heard William carvalho being in the list for Arsenal too.

    But my guess Only one of those will leave this window.

    Milan finalized Biglia, 31, playmaker from Lazio for 17 to 20 with bonuses (good pick, overpriced, not terrific, but Milan badly lacked someone in that position) and should sign Bonucci, 30 central def from Juventus, sums haven't been named yet.

    Bonucci is a terrific choice. Most signings so far have been 20-22 years old talented kids, which is good, but with just one good season behind them. Bonucci adds experience and someone at the peak of his career. Apparently there was a breakdown with Juventus after the loss against Real Madrid and he wanted to leave. He's a def that improved enourmously in the last 5 years, going from an absolute nobody to a world class central defender on par with Hummels. This also shifts strength from Juventus, which is good because they won the last 5 seasons.

    PSG is set to do 2017 mercato as bad as the 2016 version.


    Milan AC looks very promising. Now they need to sell a good deal of their average mediocre players ASAP. I am a bit sad they do not keep Lapadula.

    He's a dick. While his playing style fits that of Conte, on a personal basis, he's total trash. He's petty, was sent off multiple times for unnessary, violent reactions, doesn't respect the manager.

    Shame because he's a great player, but some people are like that.

    Milan officialized Biglia as mentioned above and Bonucci for 42. Right now the alleged to striker as signing would be Belotti from Torino for 80 mil. Absolutely overpriced, though at least he has been scoring consisently for 5 seasons (including lower leagues) and he's 23.

    Ho well. For reasons I like Diego Costa a lot. I like this kind of thuggish main striker. Beside he is not that bad. Simply put it is clearly visible in his play-style and behavior he learnt to play football from the street.

    With the recruitment of Morata, Diego Costa better find a new club soon.

    I hope PSG will managed to recruit both Neymar and Sanchez. Yuri Berchiche made a poor preparation until now. It seems like the staff made yet another poor recruitment choice after Jese and Krychowiak last year. The team may need a new goal keeper too. Though it makes sense to give Trapp and Areola a season to work with the new goal keeper manager.
