    De Ketelaare would be IMO a better option than Richarlson but less proveen of course

    an older option would be perfect as it gives took for younger players to come through next season

    Ally Gold came out with a nice story about brereton diaz yesterday. Seems football manager players in chile realised that diaz could play for the chilean national team. So they started a petition to get their fa to ask him. Their fa did and he said yes.

    If we want a young like-for-like for Kane, he's the really obvious one.

    Ok twitter in meltdown. A couple of rumors we're going heavily in for martinez. 90m bandied about, guessing euros but still.

    Can't see it. But who knows?

    Sounds like we might be forcing Inter's hand on Bastoni. Testing which one they'd least like to lose.

    Martinez is a great player, but he doesn't fit our system/isn't the type of forward we need.

    He did well for conte before. Paratici likes him as we were interested last summer.

    Not saying it's true though.

    It is huge. But as i was saying earlier jesus at £50m in his last year. Everton wanting £70m for richarlison. Raphina £80m. £76m for martinez isn't total madness.

    Even with the funding we've been granted, that level of bid is crazily high. Italian paper talk surely, Inter Milan maybe getting some sympathetic journalists to put that out to encourage other bids for other players.

    We have done great deals. But I wouldn't be surpised if not all the £150 million does go to transfers.
    And of the portion that does, Romero, Kulu and other completed deals will still have money that needs paying out.

    It's actually a couple of italian tv reporters i believe. Alfredo pedulla (he was meant to have announced conte to spurs) and
    Gianluigi Longari.

    Tbh i've only been on twitter since the jan window so haven't a clue.

    Anyway no bid made so far. So nothing to get too excited about yet.

    And eriksen. That would be huge options.

    352 any 2 of son, kane and martinez up front.
    343 any 3 of kulu, kane, martinez and son up front.

    Lucas, eriksen and perisic to fill in if required.

    Doubt it will happen. Especially as marrota hates paratici.

    Another interesting tidbit is that psg have allegedly just had a €50m bid for skriniar turned down. Inter wanting €70m.

    So might be a ploy to get psg back to the table. Or all bs, who knows?

    It’s good that psg are still buying players repute having no manager and DOF who has been there 5 minutes

    We're not buying a CF for 90m - just being used to set the price in the media as Chelsea probs trying to get him as part of the Lukaku deal
