    Mane will leave if Real Madrid seriously come in for him. Anyone who thinks otherwise is mental.

    I think it's mental to be so sure about it either way.

    Use your loaf, lads. How many players, when seriously faced with interest from Barcelona and Real, have turned them down and stayed with clubs like us?

    Why are we talking about Mane on a post about a Dutch defender?

    I can't see how we're going to save money if we have hoever and de ligt on all the time

    I think Hoever and Matip could provide a lot of entertainment.

    I'm hearing from various people that de light has it to be the best defender in the world, he has that much potential!  But if we had a choice of spending big on de ligt or on an expensive but we'll sought after striker like Frankfurt player Luka jovic who would you rather go for?

    My personal preference? de Ligt. We have Brewster who could make the grade if he has a clear run at the first team. I'm not saying he will. But he could.

    Story in the Daily Mail saying some Barca guy is in Amsterdam to tie up a deal for him. Surprised (if true) they didn't just do it at the same time as signing De Jong

    Hopefully Virgil's been in his ear trying to get him to sign for us.  Then when it goes t!ts up for him there we come steaming in at a vastly reduced fee.

    De Ligt and Virgil together looked pretty gash against Germany.

    Fair point but a one-off (so far at least) and each one's quality is undeniable.  Food for thought though, defo.

    Yeah, de Ligt was at fault for one of the goals. No doubt that he's a great talent and will be a fantastic centre back, but will we pay that amount of money when we have Gomez there who looked like the perfect fit next to Virgil.

    We do, and I rate the guy big time (I already did before he started to look so impressive alongside Virgil) but his injury status will continue to be a worry and, if he's out for a long time again at some point, I'm not convinced Lovren and/or Matip are good enough to be more than short-term replacements.  Tricky one.

    Yeah, in an ideal world Gomez would be back and stay fit for the next five years at least. He looked absolutely awesome with VVD before this latest set back. I think we would be about five points clear if he'd stayed fit.
