Reminds me a bit of Maddison. Has a similarly languid yet composed style in possession, keeps the ball well. And seems to have an eye for that threaded pass as well.

You can just tell with special players that they treat the ball like it's their friend.

They don't tense up when they have the ball.

He looks languid because he's calm and fluid and already knows what he's going to do.

Devine has some of that, but a less rounded profile right now.

Hypothetically if we got him I'd sell Hojbjerg and GLC and put Bergvall and Devine in.

We'd be set in midfield for a decade, just as we are at CB.

(It won't happen. It won't happen. It won't happen)

I think you have to assume that - I am pretty sure he was seen in Barça - so, if his mind was made up - his agent would have told us.

If someone is still taking our calls - its fair game, imo.
That's what i'm hoping for.

It's all moot if Durgardens want us to bid more yet the player has his heart set solely on Barcelona.

This , coupled with Ange just saying that any new signings are much more unlikely than this time yesterday makes me think this is a 👎

What's the issue with us working our nuts off calling him regularly?! It worked with Dragusin and if the lad knows we are pushing for him then that can only be seen as a positive for me. Will it be difficult to beat Barca?! Of course it will! But if you're going to try then why not go all out!

Never said I have an issue with any of it! Got to try. No question though in my head about where he's going.

Yep. Shooters shoot. Don't ask, don't get.

Apparently we have offered him a place in the first team squad.
Excellent to hear. I read before we were suggesting he would go in the academy which would be silly imo. Plus he’d be HG eventually. Would be a phenomenal pick up but with him wanting Barca you know he will go there. How they afford him i don’t know. But somehow they will blag it again.

If he’s just started following Barca on socials, I think that gives the clearest indicator this deal isn’t happening for us!

Would be nice to have stuck a bid in that they simply can't afford to match. Which would probably only have to be about €10m in their current state. If they stop being able to attract players in on reputation alone, and are also skint, then they truly are in the mud.

If Barca could pull the trigger now they surely would to ward us off?

They have the cash but not the Spanish FFP headroom.

So they'll do some kind of loan back for Bergvall.

Then hope to sell enough players in the summer to be able to re-register Roque, this lad, and any new signings.

If they don't raise enough in sales then everyone is left in the lurch and they're in deep shit.

Which will inevitably drive the prices down for their players.

These are probably the arguments we've made, and hence why the player is thinking it over.

I honestly think he should sit tight until the summer (or join us obvs!).

I reckon he joins us.

Last time I said this, Dragusin signed. If this guy joins, I'm basically ITK at that point.

I see Roque scored the winner for Barca tonight!

Not sure where this narrative has come from but he follows Deki, Son, Dele, Sessegnon, Bale on Insta. Hardly as though he doesn’t know we exist!
