    For Arsenal there’s only one signing on our minds atm. Who will replace Wenger.

    Looks like anyone with real pedigree will want in the region of £200m to rebuild the squad. Both Enrique and Allegri are rumoured to have put that figure on the table. So Arteta is the favorite. Not the most inspiring appointment...

    Is those numbers now well in the Arsenal budget? I thought they could afford it. That and much more.

    Griezman should go to Barca

    Apparently not. The figure given for transfers (without money gained from sales) is £50m. And I don't see us raising much from sales unless we let a couple of big names go.

    Deals we're strongly rumoured to be working on/close to completing.

    CB - Sokratis Papastathopoulos (Dortmund)
    CB - Çağlar Söyüncü - ( SC Freiburg)
    GK - Bernd Leno -(Bayer Leverkusen)

    Possible signings.
    Jean Michaël Seri - Likely.
    Max Meyer - Unlikely.

    Players I can see going.

    Ospina. £8m
    Chambers. £7m
    Iwobi (please God) Loan.

    Players on loan.

    Perez. £7m
    Campbell. (contract expires)
    Jenkinson. £2m

    Players who might go.

    Bellerin. £35m
    Ramsey. £40m
    Wilshere. Contract expires.

    The big story coming out tonight. Unai Emery will be appointed Arsenal manager this week. I know little about him, he won 3 Europa leagues with Sevilla and the French league with PSG. Seems like a good fit for us. Pragmatist in me says all he has to do is finish above 6th to make progress..

    Zidane left Real Madrid after winning the 3rd CL in a row... that will cause some serious transfer waves, but only after the World Cup.

    Smart move by Zidane. The Real first team is ageing and the rebuild is going to cost bucket loads. Which apparently the Real board were reluctant to give to Zidane...

    Btw just want to note that as of now William Carvalho is a free player. If anyone needs a good potentially world class Defensive midfielder, he is up for grabs.
    So is several other Sporting Lisbon players.

    Like the rising Portuguese stars Gelson martins, and Bruno Fernandes ( they are both on national team right now of the world cup). The team captain Rui Patricio ( and Goalkeeper of the Portuguese national team), The dutch Goal scorer ( center foward) Bas dost.
    Also a U21 winger and second striker Daniel Podence, a youth prospect and potencial.


    It is a long story... but long story short there have been a situation with the ultras, where 50 of them invaded Sporting academy and training grounds, and made a beating, and life threats on the players and technical staff last month. There is a lot of theories with Sporting president Bruno de Carvalho being behind it of some sort, it is a peculiar shameful case for Portuguese football.

    At any case, this lead to several players to terminate their contracts with just cause, so in another words they are free players as of now. Probably more will follow.

    I hear there is rumors of Rui Patricio in wolverhampton also an earlier one that put him in Napoles.
    The former is more likely due to connections of Jorge mendes. I read Daniel podence was also going for the wolves... but im not sure.

    The other players i dont know yet. but i know they are very sought after by some European colossus. Mainly Bruno Fernandes and Gelson Martins. ( keep your eyes open for Bruno in this world cup he will attract attention for sure, made a great season).
    And of course William Carvalho.

    Basicaly Sporting lisbon has been destroying their team right now, over this unbelievable situation. Apparently this Animosity between the President , and Staff and Players has been brewing for quite a while

    Coach Jorge Jesus also left the club and signed for Al Hilal.


    As for Zidane leaving, and probably Ronaldo too, i find it odd, something must have happened. Is Ronaldo going back to Man United? that will be very interesting, but i dont see it somehow. To PSG? maybe, but i will find it odd seen Cristiano playing in the French League... In fact i will find it very strange seen Ronaldo playing in other club that isnt Real madrid right now.
    Maybe its setting up for Neymar moving out to Real?

    Also rumors of Griezman going to barça... not sure that is going to happen. Understandably so, Atletico officials are angry over public pursuit of Barcelona over Griezman. That will not make conversations going smooth now.

    Some clips of Bruno fernandes and Gelson Martins

    Gelson basically is a new Nani.. hopefully better.

    Arsenal had already bid for Martins. I’m a fan of Carvalho too, why we’ve never made a solid effort to get him is a mystery. Maybe we will now..

    Apparently Buffon will go to PSG. Weird transfers, if you ask me. Players who are identified with their clubs moving to other European powers. Not Neymar, of course. He just identifies with himself.

    Lol it is trendy to hate on Neymar this days Honestly i think there is a lot of expectations on him, maybe too much for him to bear. I also think his move to PSG was a big Mistake.

    Buffon is some what understandable, ending his career, although i would have thought he would chose to go to China or USA instead. But Paris is Paris i suppose.

    Btw Gelson Martins signed for Atletico Madrid.

    William Carvalho is undecided... but i hear he is to sign for Betis. ( what a waste if true).

    Also i hear FIAT workers are on strike today on account of Cristiano transfer...
    I sympathize on principle i really do... but i do find it odd they didnt went on strike when Juve gave 90 million euros for Higuain in 2016. Just saying.

    That being said, let's see what Real is up to now after this WC.

    I forseen a decline of real madrid in the next seasons.
    Not just Cristiano leaving ( that too and in a big way IMO) but the team is aging overall.

    I never saw Cristiano as that important to Madrid. But now they're gonna need a decent striker, otherwise they'll have to rely on Benzema.
