Kinda surprised we managed to offload both Origi and Ballo-Toure at the last minute.

Sucks they're both on loan, but I figure N.Forrest have the financial capability to sign him next summer for 5M, unless they disagree on his wages. And hopefully they don't get relegated. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Ballo-Toure is on a dry loan. Man, what a stinker of a player. Like the sh*t you step on accidentally that's so difficult to get rid off from your shoes.

Regarding Jovic, I just realised Madrid spent 65m for him 5 years ago. Like, WTF! The issue is that if he really was at least half decent, he wouldn't have failed in both his post-Madrid experiences like he has. 4 goals in 18 appearances at Eintracht, 6 in 31 at Fiorentina. Meh.

PS: We got him on a free. I thought it was a loan, but it's a definitive signing.

It's a short contract so if it goes bad, no harm, no foul

For Real to pay that much, it should say a lot. He was great with Rebic at Eintracht. So not sure how you go from a 65m player to being swapped about for free

Some players are just one season wonders. Remember Piatek? I have no hopes for Jovic. He can be the sub this year, but next season with Giroud going 38 we need a couple of striker signings. My eyes are on Jonathan David.

I think the plan was we go for Taremi this summer in view of Giroud's departure next year. So his replacement would overlap him.

With that not going through and all the signings we made this summer, I really do think that we can dedicate a big chunk of the budget to a top striker next summer.

Atm, we have 3 positions still left to improve. ST, RB and DM. So if we have around 60-70m next summer, I think we can allocate 40m to the striker position

Lille should be kissing our @sses every day considering how we bailed them out of the Leao problems

Yep. Furlani got the deal over the line by stepping in and sorting the Sporting issue out.

Why do you think Leao is at just 5.5m per year?

Regarding this, it emerged from our latest financial statements that we actually paid 20m to Lille to solve the matter. So Leao's actual cost is 50m, considering we also spent 30m to sign him.
