Are there still some portuguese fans on here? BMG are on the brink of signing Porto prospect Moreto Cassama, and I'm curious to know more about the kid.

Bernardo Silva in Manchester to sign with ManCity.

Good signing. Should mean that Sterling is heading to the bench.
Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, Kevin Garnett, Toni Kroos, Pep Guardiola, Ernst Happel, Joachim Löw.

That Monaco team is going to be gutted of all its assets, isn't it? A shame, really.

That's how football and the free market economy work in 2017.

At least be happy that you get some quality players in your league instead of them always going to Barcelona or Madrid.

Monaco are supposedly going to make Mahrez an offer.

I get that Madrid would love to have a Spaniard between the sticks but De Gea offers nothing over Keylor except perhaps his age imo. Mbappe's great and all and we'll probably move on him, but I'd make keeping James a priority personally. Unfortunately that involves either selling Bale or Benzema this summer without buying a replacement. Won't happen.

Expect we'll recall Vallejo to cover for Pepe who's out of contract, and sign Theo Hernandez to fill in where Coentrao used to be. People have been saying we'll recall Llorente from Alaves but he's doing well- wouldn't want to bring him back to a team with Kroos, Modric, Isco, Kovacic, Casemiro, Asensio, and James, for only 3-4 midfield spots at most. Let him continue to grow somewhere else I reckon.

How many AMs does City need?

Also apparently Inter is getting James. Meh

I know that, and it's a good signing for City. It's just a shame that an exciting Monaco team is being broken up so soon after such a great season, that's all.

And I wouldn't have really cared if he had gone to Madrid or Barca. It doesn't matter to me. It's not like there's a shortage of quality players in the Premier League.

Most boring possible destination for James, imo. That Inter team could use him though, they're not particularly good.

this season, everytime i've heard his name, its either him saying he wants more playing time or his agent making some kind of move like he's going to move.

I think he complained 1 time lol. He's been very professional despite the lack of playing time and played well every time he was given a shot

even if we ignore that, where would he play for us, he's not exactly a natural fit for us, we could play him on the wings (i like him more than perisic) but its a bit of a bad match.

Doesn't Mourinho use a 4231?

He's arguably the best pure 10 in the world and Mou has always maximized the output from his "10s"

They're asked to track back a ton more than most traditional #10 players in his system. He's so good given freedom to stray up from the but I kinda prefer him more on the rightwing drifting in like Isco did

Looks like Griezman will leave Atletico.

United would do well to pick up both James and Griezman
