If we could get him for under 30m it would be decent business. He's young enough to improve and would be competent back up. It would be pointless splurging 50m on De Light when he's unlikely to unsurp Jan/Davinson
De Ligt is still a teenager and Mawson is 24. There's an argument that it's actually pointless to spend a large sum of money on Mawson if all he's ever going to be is a back up. There's obviously a longer term aspect to signing De Ligt. I think many would expect him to be Vertonghen's eventual replacement when he's 21/22.

If back up is all we want then we could just get Jonny Evans in for next to nothing.

If we have a chance to get de ligt then we try our damnedest. The kid is already top drawer and will be an absolute superstar.

I wouldn't be against Jonny Evans. With Foyth developing well and Dier able to cover I find it pointless blowing money on a position we're well stocked when we have much more pressing priorities

Poch said he wanted the "wantaway stars" gone quickly...
Poch also said he wanted players in before World Cup, but the consensus is agents/clubs prefer to wait till after the World Cup in the hope a good performance boosts there value. Wouldn't be an issue with De Ligt though.

If De Ligt is Tobys replacement i can live with it ... hope we secure him, he has no WC coming up since Netherlands have not qualified
Personally, I could see the point to going after Mawson, as a natural LCB is likely to be a more pressing gap in our squad at some point, given Jan is older than Sanchez. However, I'd assume given De Ligt played with Sanchez previously, that one of them must be comfortable enough at LCB.

Definite feeling from the recent ITK that moves are being made already, very much in line with Poch's public stance. I'd say he's earnt that level of backing. Sounds like it's going to be a ruthless time for those not cutting it. Glad to see KWP got some backing too.

If we go with a back 3...the future prospect of de Ligt, Sanchez and Foyth with Lloris behind them has all the makings of the Juve dynasty that dominated for half a decade...

(Buffon, Chiellini, Bonucci and Barzagli for those wondering)
Decent but no patch on the Milan defence of Baresi, Costacurta, Maldini and Panucci + goalkeeper

If Mawson is being considered as a backup LCB for Jan then I'd personally rather use Ben Davies for that once we have a new first choice LB. Rather De Ligt all day long.

How is this ITK related?
Do we think maybe the number of overseas players we have will effect final transfer targets? Thinking CL squad again,

I am a massive fan of Hugo... but he’s no Buffon.

I'll deal with this in the early hours, it'll give me something to look forward to. This is like Christmas Eve for me, I don't know if I'll actually get to sleep the excitement is so intense.

Nighty night, don't let the banstick bite.

Apologies for the post, slipped my mind as I’d Spent 20 mins catching up on the de Ligt thread, got a little mixed up...my bad!

Love this thread and all the hard work from our ITK’s (and staff) that goes into it, good summer ahead!

Thx for the de ligt info. I can fully appreciate why he is valued so high. It’s clear from watching him in international duty, that he may be a teenager, but he plays like a seasoned CB. He’ll only get better over time. And having a guy like Jan mentor the young cb trifecta would be amazing.
Question will be whether Daniel will be prepared to pay the going price. As my guess is that we aren’t the only ones who’ll be chasing this lad!!

If you don’t put your foot down now it’ll be chaos later in the window. Can you imagine when Man City sign DeLigt ? 😂

We are very in! Aggressively! BEN is correct in all. Germany looking very promising, along with our 1st choices, in the departments we have earmarked. If Germany does not happen at least once, don’t be sad, as 2nd choice is very good.

There is a snippet in another post which is correct. I will say no more.

There's no list. Unless they're asking not to RO it (like Igi does) then put it in.
Since i am sitting here in Auckland with all this ITK ready to post, I was just wondering why it matters where it goes except the RO just means you dont have to read all the posts. I am sure this a dumb question :)
