Confirmed Transfers

John Brooks -> Wolfsburg; 20m - making him most expensive American of all time (until someone buys Pulisic).

They rave about him on men in blazers, but they rave about every American. What do you think Shifty?

Germany really becoming the home of hot American talent.

I like Brooks a lot, but he's not really what I would call a modern defender. He's quick and imposing and can score from headers, but he's not the best passer in the world. So he'll never be world class, but he could have been if he was born 15 years earlier. He's still not as good as Fabian Johnson or Christian Pulisic.

I like defenders like that, wish there were more of them. I don't think it is healthy for any back line to be both /all three 'ball playing defenders'. That's what Kompany brought to City this season in the few games he played, everyone just seemed so much more relaxed knowing there was someone back there who knew when to just twat it into the back of the stands.

Van Dijk becomes the most expensive defender in history, his CB partner at city (Stones) drops to second most expensive defender in history. And still they dont scare me.

Guardiola complained about how real madrid payed 1421412m for an u18 so he can spend whatever he wants because the market is already broken

Every year City break the bank to buy a central defender and their defense still remain shit. Van Dijk will not significantly improve their defense but he can still improve.

Who the fuck is van dick by the way
Haha! If Guardiola could reply, he'd probably say: "it doesn't matter who we are, what matters is our plan". If Stones is Guardiola's Beckenbauer, Van Dick would be his Schwarzenbeck.

60m for that guy... CB from Southampton. Wtf is happening?!
You're right, it appears I jumped the gun a little bit, one newspaper is reporting it as confirmed but they're the only ones. Amazingly some others think there may be last minute bids to BEAT that offer.

I've seen Southampton play a lot and whilst he's a good player never once have I felt like I'm watching one of the best defenders in the world. Fonte (admittedly very old) looked equally good but has been awful since he left for West ham.

I agree. I mean, surely you can find equal quality defenders or better for that price. That seems like a Bonucci price. Why not just go for Davinson Sanchez or Andreas Christensen or even that Koulibaly guy at Napoli.

Peter Bosz --> Dortmund

also, Mino Raiola just said Balotelli will play for them next season.



Romelu Lukaku on his future: "We are in talks with the club. I want to play in the Champions League, & win the Premier League."

ManU most likely.
