    FFS, we could have had Messi for two years instead of that bloody stadium.

    So instead of buying players for the past three decades, we could've been saving up for Messi. :mad:

    Levy out.

    If he was on a free I was starting to think he might be worth a punt. just so long as his wages weren’t silly or anything, and would fit neatly into our wage structure.

    Average salary in Spain is quite low, so I don't think he'd be super expensive....

    That’s what I was thinking. It would be good to leave a bit in the weekly budget, to allow us to tie the Bale deal up.

    Even if this Lionel character gets a work permit, he’d be taking a home grown player’s place in the squad. And he’s a midget. The whole thing looks very flimsy and I resent the way the club gets used by these attention-seeking wantaway chancers,

    Good point. Jose does prefer taller players to defend the back stick at set pieces.

    Barca will cash in, someone will pay £30m for him give him a £50m signing on fee then pay him £300k a week. Barca get some money and free up his wages, Messi gets a years wages upfront as well as an extra £300k a week and someone has spent £80m on the best player in the world.

    His wages at Barca are £1m a week and the total package is worth £100m a year.

    Meh. I think we should go for <insert name of young, Div 3, English player here> instead.

    3 years at City then 2 years at NYC apparently the most likely option. Long live FFP.

    Why do I think it'll be a 5 year contract with NYC with a 3 year loan deal to MC thus completely bypassing FFP.

    I'd really admire City for pulling that off.

    In my simple mind that would actually work, not that City care about FFP. Hopefully it will be a tinkletake too far and UEFA do something about it, otherwise it would be simple to have a loss making feeder club outside of Europe to do this which could include buying unwanted players at inflated prices too?
