    Willian Jose

    Would be a good signing imo, as he gives us what we need for the rest of this season, and he'd be a good backup for Kane in the next. Not for €50m, though.

    Loaning Bale makes lots of sense, though. He's 31 in the summer and relies so much on his physical attributes. Makes any sort of wage contribution from RM easier as well.

    The "He's coming home" Gareth Bale Thread

    Yeah, I got really excited when I saw the thread/OP combo.

    Takeover talk

    I didn't even know that existed. Seems useful!

    Takeover talk

    This kind of ties up with the fact that we don't have naming rights yet as well.

    The other top 6 clubs have plenty of cover up front. We don't.

    Gedson Fernandes

    The price of the buy option isn't that relevant is it? If he turns out to be worth that kind of money in 18 months we'll pay it, if not we won't pay it.

    With our very questionable transfer record, loans with option to buy are pretty ideal aren't they? Try before you buy.

    Agreed, but he works really well in the "Davies role".

    Bruno Fernandes

    Was thinking the same. I personally think we need to spend our cash elsewhere, but it would be fun to se their faces.

    Benfica understandably want to cover their bases. If he turns out to be a player worth that kind of money then that's great for us, and Benfica make sure they don't get shafted. If he turns out to be good, but no more than that, there will surely be room for negotiation. And if he turns out to...

    I'm excited by this. He was very highly rated no more than a year ago, and I think the deal suits us perfectly. We get a sorely needed body in, but won't have to pay any substantial amount of money until 2021, which hopefully gives us the opportunity to strengthen other areas of the squad.

    Fuck me, is it mandatory for someone to post this every time we're linked to a big name? It's boring as shit. Maybe the transfer isn't gonna happen (most likely not), but it's a lot more fun than being linked to the Jarrod Bowens of this world, isn't it? Just enjoy the fucking ride. Que sera sera.

    Yeah, I saw it on twitter first. Got my hopes up, and for once I wasn't disappointed. Amazing news!
