    Anyway I'm actually worried about City. They've sorted out the midfield with Gundogan, looking to get a CB(Marquinhos rumours) and will probably get a fullback. CL congestion will probably still hurt them again though. Very hard for a team to be consistent in both PL and CL these days.

    I think there are 5 or even 6 title contenders.
    Didn't Marquinhos overtake Luiz at the end of the season? I think Marquinhos will be very hard to be prized away with T.Silva looking old and Luiz I think I read will be played in the Central midfield more?

    Is signing injured players the way forward?

    Yeah he did, but that was probably because the season was over.

    I guess he would be hard to buy though. Interesting that Luiz is going to be played at CM though, I assume it's to replace Thiago Motta?

    Yeah that's probably coz PSG won the league early on so they could play Marquinhos more

    No I know they won the league early but I think their going to play Luiz as Jam said in CM to replace Motta.

    Is anyone else opting for Higuain instead of Ibra? I mean, even on free transfer, he'll eat up a ton of wages. Plus French League is nowhere near the quality of the BPL. I think Falcao is a testament to that.

    • First of all Ibra would work out cheaper than Higuain
    • Second of all why would it matter anyways
    • Third of all poor logic with the french league is no where near quality of the BPL. Martial comes from the ligue 1 and so has Hazard etc. Not to mention Zlatan has played at top level in the Spanish and Italian league also (which Higuain has played at too) so that argument is so invalid.

    Higuain will cost upwards of £60million,

    Lowe dat.

    Money we'd make from Ibra's shirt sales would probably cover his wages.

    Personally doubt they'd do that especially as they're trying to win CL, they'll need a real DM. They've been linked with Lass/Kroos/Busquets recently so one could say they are actively looking idk?

    Luiz is a good DM, much better at that then CB.

    Don't see who they could realistically get to play that position, so its a plausible idea.

    Higuain will have more competition for him, will be 50mill+ and has shown no particular interest in United. His wages will also be high.

    Ibra will be a free, his wages will be high, his shirt sales will be outrageous, no one else in the big leagues immediately strike me as wanting him and he loves Mourinho.

    I don't think we'll get Zlatan, but a better option if it means we spend that 50mill elsewhere.
