I don’t get the fuss around Raphinha. Pretty decent player that had a purple patch and now every man and his dog wants him.
I don't get the fuss about many Leeds players. They barely avoided relegation and it looks like every single player of them, Raphinha, Kalvin Phillips, Bamford, Meslier etc all are wanted for good prices.

I think Meslier, based purely on the eye test, is an average keeper.

Bamford, Kalvin Phillips, and Raphinha are all capable playing for a Europa league side, at least. Bamford and Phillips missed significant portions of the season with injuries, as did crucial parts of their defense. They easily would've survived relegation if it wasn't for that.

Bamford is shit
For a striker playing in a side that should be finishing 11th-15th in the league, he's really not.

He's one of the best strikers in the bottom half of the league and could easily be an option or start for Arsenal, Leicester, Brighton, or West Ham.

Leeds might be Bamford's 'level' but I reckon if they had him fit last season they wouldn't have been in fear of relegation in the last couple of months.

They make it look like Lukaku took a 4m paycut from 12m to 8m, but doesn't mention Chelsea is paying that amount.

Of course that Chelsea are paying the €4 million difference. He is still under contract with them ...

The image was striking and so was the timing, five days before City played at the Bernabeu and a week after their two-year ban from UEFA competitions (subsequently revoked) had been announced. It was an unauthorised interview, set up by Sterling’s agent, and the relevant people at City were distinctly unimpressed.

Hmmm....

In fairness they've only had a single season in the PL from the time Kewell left until Raphinha joined, they're not going to have Brazilian internationals in League 1.

Personally, I think Raphinha's very average and I'm delighted our apparent interest in him wasn't genuine. I don't see Arteta improving him.

Solid signing for Newcastle. They’re clearly taking the ‘sign decent top half players and grow at a moderate pace’ approach rather than City’s attempts to sign known superstars. They’ll jettison 90% of these players within 3 seasons you’d imagine.

City also weren't trying to attract top tier players with their first window or so of spending either, you need to bring in a few useful short term mercenaries before you can start throwing around the cash to attract the players that would want to be in europe in addition to earning shitloads.

Xaver Schlager moves to RB Leipzig from Wolfsburg for an undisclosed fee. Makes sense, he’s a tidy, busy midfielder with a great engine who was schooled at Liefering and Salzburg.

Laimer is probably leaving in light of the above.

Is that a contract issue or clause? Because no way should be moving for £8 million less than Dean Henderson, regardless of their ages.

They have just agreed to sign Daniel Ballard from us. He should be a good signing, central defender, had good loan spells at Blackpool & Millwall, Northern Irish International and we have put some sort of buy back option on him so must think he might still be able to go up a couple of levels.

Paul Pogba to Juventus, confirmed and here we go! Full agreement now completed on a free transfer. Deal to be signed at the beginning of July, it’s done and sealed.

Pogba will be in Italy in two weeks. Juve sold him for €100m six years ago - now he’s back for free.

Mbabu looked the part in his first season at Wolfsburg, but has been in and out of the starting line up since and hasn’t really pushed on. They have Ridle Baku who plays that right side, who’s a far better and more dynamic player, and is on a longer contract, and Mbabu has a year left on his deal I think.
