    Those are paid adverts on their IG / Twitter accounts. When is the last time you saw a top pro advertising anything on his IG account ? I'm not sure they would even be permitted to by the club. I'm sure I read something about the clubs controlling that (advertising not tweets etc.).

    I was thinking about what we need.

    And we essentially lost a lot of momentum when Trent got injured. Our FBs are so essential to our play.

    Those games against Leicester and West Ham, we struggled to create chances.

    Some of the games Millie had to fill in like against Palace (vs Zaha) were difficult games too.

    Thus I think an athletic FB with excellent delivery is another position we need to fill.

    I'd be happy with:

    1) LB replacement/cover - Moreno leaving. 15m-ish.
    2) RB replacement/cover. 15m-ish.
    3) In midfield, with Ox and Keita back, and Hendo now considered an 9, we are probably well stacked in the "AM role", so I doubt we will strength there. We'll need a replacement/cover DM, who can play as an 8 too. So not surprised with the NDombele links. Lallana to leave. 35m-ish.
    4) Cover across the front 3 positions. I would expect someone like Pepe who can cover both wide positions and also give us the option of playing Salah/Mane as Firmino's cover. Brewster/Origi will be 3rd choice. Studge to leave. 50m-ish.

    Less than 100m net will be spent, with the outgoings.

    The only possible marquee signing being De Light, if FSG consider him a player of exceptional long term value, being 19, we may push the boat out for him.

    Yeah, bit disappointing, we've been linked with him for ages & he seemed to be exactly what we needed as backup.

    Here is Paul Pogba


    and here is Daniel Sturridge


    Since I don't use Instagram I cross-referenced with Kim K's account to see what a paid Instagram post looks like


    On their respective account, it looks the image below. You can see under the account name it says "Paid partnership with...."

    Brandt is not going to leave Germany this summer. He's going to either Dortmund or Munich.

    So I knew one of his coaches back in his day at Danish club Lyngby, and he was like;

    "This young lad's got it all, he'll achieve great things."

    RB Leipzig bought him back then and Yussuf Poulsen rather quickly secured a spot in the ambitious 2. Bundesliga outfit at the time. A few years later he got his first call-up for the Danish national team after having celebrated promotion to the Bundesliga, but in one area I was still not quite convinced; his first touch.

    His first touches was often poor and left him all reliant on his admittedly stunning physical ability; pace, strength, grit and power. A great cocktail in any forward/winger but the technical ability wasn't quite upthere.

    This has improved greatly however over the past 12 months and now he's suddenly one of the top strikers in the Bundesliga. His versatility and sheer power is what makes him perhaps a candidate for your list @Rosco. Make the judgement yourself.

    PS He's an absolutely good lad outside the pitch too, always hard-working and a strong mentality - in this aspect "a Klopp-type" of player I guess.

    Yeah my daughter is a paid ambassador on IG for a number if minor brands but nothing at all like those rates.

    However aren't those all official sponsors for their teams (Pogba and Studge) ? In which case rights controlled by the club and likely the greater part of the income too. As I mentioned earlier I believe I read that most players have image rights controlled by the club so what they put out on IG is probably all official shit from the club and likely written into their contracts.

    I think some of the top players negotiate these separately. Not sure about Mo as he had a barney with the Egyptian FA over precisely this didn't he ? IN which case of LFC controlled his image rights they would be embroiled too.

    They hardly ever do the Germans. Same thing every time we're linked, drawn out, boring saga... signs for Bayern.
