    I'll start with an actual rumour then. Lol...

    Alex Sandro to United looks like it could happen.

    Willian? Can't see Chelsea selling another player to United tho.

    Hazard has warned Chelsea that his future depends on who Chelsea bring in. Makes sense. No point in staying without any real ambition to win the league.
    Bar has been raised by City and we must spend freely again.
    Utd are being linked with so many players at the moment

    That's a clear pointer to how fudgeing badly we've played at times this year. Gone from needing a couple of players to a major squad overhaul.

    Alderweirald looks like it could be on the cards also.

    I like who we are being linked to but realistically we'll probably end up playing Fellaini at full back

    City will only sign 2 players. Both done early to avoid the late World Cup / holidays / transfer window closing early mad dash.

    Jorginho from Napoli is one.

    Bonucci to United or Bayern is doing the rounds. Oblak to Arsenal too.

    Imagine the talk when they only sign two players but for a combined fee of £300mil

    Oblak would be an amazing signing for anyone. But I can see there being much better sides in for him than Arsenal. If DDG left then that's who I would want as a replacement.

    Incidentally it looks like Buffon will retire today so they may be in for a keeper as well

    I'd like Liverpool to meet Oblak's release clause, great goalie but no doubt we will end up with one of the English goalies like Butland.

    I’m still not convinced about Mahrez to be honest.

    Useful to have in the squad. There really isn't anyone available who'd significantly improve your starting 11.

    Don't start with the bench warmers thing.

    We didn't have one player who played every Premier League game and the injuries to Mendy, Kompany, Aguero (obviously!!) etc were well documented.

    The one position I think is clearly a priority is the Fernandinho holding role, he's 33.

    I mean, I'm not convinced he's a target after we tried to get him in January.

    Laporte was signed then rather than mess about this summer so I think we will sign a holding midfielder and another striker.

    To be fair, Dembele had a huge injury as soon as he signed

    True enough but he's used him very sparingly since he's recovered .

    Many Barca fans including me have had enough of Valverde and his 'safe and cautious ' style .

    Lol had enough of a manager that was one game away from an unbeatable season....

    Coutinho was always going to struggle to become an instant starter as good as he is, although I'm sure he's played quite a few games since arriving.

    I'm sure next season he will start more.

    Also Dembele had a huge injury which kept him out for months.

    I cannot believe you have had enough of the manager tbh.

    Barca cakewalked a league containing the Europa League winners and probably the Champions League winners too (sorry Redmen).

    Dare I say it *whispers* the manager might be right and the FANS are wrong?!

    It's certainly a theory.
