Maybe we are looking to get another more experienced defender in ?

We've got shedloads of experience. We could do with another young, talented one - even if they too go out on loan.

I just clicked, have been wondering when we will get any other new players in like Sarr, but I guess GP won't sanction just any deal until he knows what money is coming in, and our big price player only got sold today. I guess we might hear something soon on any incoming...?

Extra 20 million to help us get another attacker and defender ?

Also will Kabasele go too ?

Let's see...

"Right then Brendan, your knickers are in a twist that you've had to sell you CB 10 days before the start of the season.. fair enough.. The good news is that you have 85 million in your pocket from the sale... Now, you want OUR CB 7 days before the season starts. You want to pay what?... 8 Million? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO..... It's a seller's market for CBs these days M8. Slide over 30M and we'll help him pack".

"But YOU'RE BLOODY ROBBING ME!!!! He's not worth half that!!!!! "

"Robbing you?!?!?! What was your first clue? Of course we are... Now, send the cheque or it's 32 and counting..."

Hmm, not sure about this.... Maguire is the best real CB in the country, there's no way that Kabasele can be viewed a direct replacement.? Anyway I think we must be after another CB so we need some funds to make a move.? Have no idea what Kabs real value might be but surely £15 m would get him...? (as long as we have a good'un in mind to replace him...)

CBs are VERY expensive this year. Thanks to that Dutch bloke in Liverpool and the other one that Ajax just sold.

Not overly surprised by the lack of signings. The accounts show most of the TV money gets spent on wages and Gino can't compete financially with other owners - Muff, Villa etc. If I recall we'd have made a significant loss without Richarlison's dosh, and Lukebakio aside we've not moved anyone on.

Just a shame we've wasted so much money on dross like Sema, Okaka, Success.

And their wages.

Read Gray was on 70k a week!

Plus we seem to pay out a lot to agents.

Whilst the first team have been quiet transfer wise it seems the Under 23 squad has had a total overhaul!

I really think the club are seriously looking at our position in two or three years time.... When ayers like Pedro, Quina, Wilmot, the new guy from Man City, plus others will have come of age. We seem to be concentrating on bringing in more slightly older under 23s which must be with the same insight.? It means we are stuck with a slightly aging team for now but the future could be quite bright / young / exciting.... We need Javi to stick around and see this through.

Yesterday it was claimed Sarr was close to signing - now it seems its just we were interested and other clubs are in the running too.

Basically bet we don't sign this bloke.

Talk of Chalobah going out on loan to Norwich or Sheff U.

Surely if he is fit we ought to keep him ?

Allegations he has been seen at the training ground !

Also linked to Welbeck - would he pass a medical?!

Funny, a couple of weeks ago it crossed my mind that we might go for welbeck, but thought no, if he'll come to us he must still be pretty crocked.? Maybe they feel he's worth a seasons contract based on being a free agent and 50/50 he might come good.?
3 years back I really rated him, but who knows now.

He can be signed after the window shuts due to the fact as you say he is a fee agent .

Signed then.! You have to hand it to GP and probably Gracia this time around. We really needed a big strong CB, and in comes exactly that for cheap money. Not a VVD but he can do a job, one that we've done badly for some years.. (DEFEND). We could have splashed £15m on some foreign player that will take 18 mo this to settle and bed in. Dawson will fit straight in and do a job straight away.!
Now we have Welbeck, one of my fav two strikers of recent years (the other being J Lingard) so if he can keep fit we will be laughing. Add Sarr and with no real leavers we can hope for another steady season.!!

Presumably Welbeck fills the Okaka role. Spot starter and late game sub when we need a goal. He'll probably take that role without whinging and as a result, we can sell Okaka for a few quid to Italy. If Welbeck is healthy and claims a regular role, so much the better and worth the cost. Top class when he's healthy.

Hope not.! Very different style of player so I don't think this affects the Sarr situation. I can see Okaka leaving tomorrow, and something tells me that if Sarr does sign tomorrow we might be seeing someone like Pereyra leaving..? Must admit the way we play I don't understand where any "winger" will actually fit in? Not unless we switch to a full on attacking 433 formation...

Now saying we are in for a German left back and also Danny Rose.!!?? That is ridiculous surely, unless we are about to dump Holebas and Massina..
