Summer 2017 Transfers Thread


#1424

A Premier League team must to register two list, one for the first team (A list) and one for the Under-21 players -
Contract and Scholars (B list).

Last year, for example, Bellerin, Holding and Iwobi were registered not in the first team but in the B list (despite they were first team players).


#1425

I’d go for that.
He is a top striker and would suit our style.
I wanted him here for the last couple of seasons, although after getting Lacazette it seems unlikely, with the midfield needing more quality.


#1426

The quota doesnt have to be met.


#1427

Where have you heard that?


#1428

They were registered as u21 players, alongside 50 other youth players. None of those players count as HG players.


#1429

Salary dump. Maybe why we gave Elneny a little run too at centre back? Or that was just really stop gap.


#1430

Im sure there is a way around the HG quota by registering reserve or u21 players as part of the 25.

Apparently Debuchy is going through a medical in Nice.

Well one can pray.


#1433

If true, the Chambers and Gibbs deals are good business, but I just can’t see it. Palace were balking at the £30m asking price for Sakho, yet they’d happily pay £20m for Chambers? I don’t think so.

I’d be quite happy to keep Chambers anyway, would work well in our new formation, just depends on whether he’d accept being a bit part player for the next season at least.


#1434

20 million for Chambers is a great price for Palace when we paid 16 for him. I can’t help but feel we’d have a buyback clause in there.


#1435

we would be mugging off Palace by selling him for 20 million


#1436

I just can’t see Chambers being sold already. Especially with Mertesacker retiring next season and Debuchy sold now.


#1437

Even without Mertesacker we still got five players who can play in those three CB-postions.


#1438

Where does everybody stand of Gabriel long term? I rank Holding ahead of him in terms of who we should be investing in


#1439

The new left back from shalke can play CB too and then their is also belik too, I think we could comfortably move on chambers and Gabriel this summer and still be OK at the back


#1440

Do City want Alexis? Ok, swap him with Aguero.


#1441

Holding - Koscielny - Mustafi.

Starters. Everyone else is competing.


#1442

Captain obvious to the rescue :hipster:


#1443

It was more in response to the Gabriel/Holding question.
