It's weird isn't it.

This was a guy our last manager wanted. Our club wanted.

Our new manager by all accounts wants him. I guess theres no issue losing out to Utd if indeed goes there.

But why aren't we competing for him. Why is he too much?
Because we are smart financially, unlike liverpool who pays 80m for a defender.

I took JJ's comments slightly differently. I think Mourinho see's Ndombele as his go to man in midfield and things built around him. I don't think Ndombele's defensive game is there for him to play the deepest in midfield Yes, he is perfect type for the CB's to move the ball to in that position and with him driving forward or finding a pass but I don't think he has the off the ball game/defensive discipline to play that role.
Hmmm I would tend to agree if NDombele hadn’t already had his best game for us(in Jose’s opinion) playing as a DM against Norwich(I think).

JJ's latest info suggests that there is a second Fernandes in the pipes ... Gedson already done? ... the other Fernandes more expensive ... Bruno?

Could we see this midfield soon? ... G.Fernandes Ndombele B.Fernandes

That is certainly a midfield designed to beat the press!

Edit: all this was based on JJ ITK so not sure why so many are giving optimistic or disagree ratings. Very strange.

The other is clearly Bruno.

If JJ mentioned Diwara then I apologise, I haven’t seen that :)
@Rob JUSTINSIGNAL seemed to be saying TN would be used as a DM - I was merely saying we're still scouting for a DM.


Apologies - a misunderstanding
