So you want to move forward playing without a DM?
Sorry but what's your point?

Winks is playing at the base of the diamond at the moment but imo he isn't really a DM. More of a DLP.

My previous post was suggesting Weigel is similar to Winks (imo).

My opinion and knowledge of Weigl was that he is a DM who has the ability to act as a DLP. I don't think Winks has the ability to influence enough on the defensive side to be the deepest midfielder. I think Winks has to have a dedicated DM next to him to do his dirty work.

Agree, but I just don't see a midfield two of Winks and Weigl being athletic enough.

The ball should always move faster than a player can run, IMO.

Athleticism should just be a plus. It's like Toby & Jan are way slower than Davinson but their much better in positioning and reading of the game.

Meant from a defensive side of things. In our system the midfield has to do a lot of tracking back.

I'm sure it's been debated already but why would BVB sell to us when were just about to play them in the CL?

According to Get French Football News (GFFN) on Twitter, Dortmund have decided to let Weigl leave this window for €25m with PSG edges closer for a deal.

F*ck. €25m for Weigl is a STEAL.


Edit: Here's a link to the tweet
Just looking at their twitter feed they have PSG as close to signing about 4 CMs. Gueye, De Jong, Weigl and Paredes.

That would be fairly short-sighted of them imo. I mean, they seem to consider him being deadwood..
I can see them add a clause that won't allow us to use Weigl in this round of CL if a deal is on the cards.
