    We won't sell Smalling now, think Jones is more likely to leave if I'm honest.
    My thoughts as well, Smalling has a lot of potential, Van Gaal would be silly to sell. Still though, we wouldn't go anywhere near Jones.

    To be honest I'd be pretty happy with Pedro, we haven't had a proper out and out winger in a while.

    The fact he has so many sub appearances hurts his goals per game stats, but he's got 6 assists this season and a better mins per goal rate than Sanchez! (Albeit in a more creative team, easier league and less defensive work rate).

    I think he'd be a cracking buy at £15-20mil

    Nah he'll be pushed our in the summer, probably a bit above what I said at around the £20-25mil mark, although I wouldn't really want us paying more than the mid 20's for him when you consider our weaknesses in more important areas

    Other clubs will be in for him though and he's a valuable player so I doubt Barca will try to flog him off just for anything. Sanchez was surplus too yet went for a higher price, although I suppose a good WC inflated that.

    Pedro is a shifty eyed little Spaniard. I don't trust him. But he would cost 25-30m so would be worth it tbh.

    Barcelona love buying our players as much as we love buying theirs.

    interesting words pep has on ozil:

    Next, Pep explains in detail how Mikel Arteta tries to draw in the opposing pivote in order to create a space in the middle of midfield into which Mesut Özil will try to appear. Pep walks through Arteta’s movements whilst emphasising to his players, who are spread out in front of him: “Özil is the dangerous one – he’s the one we really need to keep the closest eye on. Arteta draws you in, Özil pops up in that zone with Santi] Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain around him and that’s the way that they achieve superiority in a key area. We can’t afford that to happen.

    guy should just go to Bayern and win trophy after trophy :moon:

    However Barca don't buy ours to rely on them to win titles unlike us.

    Apart from Henry possibly Fabregassed who would you say has been a significant signing on their behalf who's really made an impact? Overmars, Vermaelen (should never have sold him), Bronckhorst, Emmanuel Petit?

    Regardless of what you say, that's a pretty amazing list of players.

    Alexis wasn't surplus especially considering he'd just had his best season in a Barca shirt. If Barca fans had their way they would have sold Pedro and kept Alexis but Pedro was happy to be a bench player and "fight" for his place because of his La Masia "product" status.

    Pedro would be a terrible signing really. The guy will be 28 at the start of next season he's not good enough for Arsenal. There are better, younger and more effective wingers out there
