Can isn't a DM. He might play there, but it would be like playing lo Celso or Ndombele there. Pretty happy to give him a miss as we need a proper DM to complement our more offensive central midfield grouping. Pjanic is starting over him at DM, which says it all.

there is always a chance that whoever has passed this news has put his own feelings behind it.

they are gutted Levy won't do what they feel is needed and used the words to make him look worse.

I mean how many big signings are usually signed in January, and if the club are going to buy a striker and make GLC permanent then our budget for this season has gone, especially after recent costs of Poch + staff and new staff
I took it that he accepts that there's nobody we could buy could guarantee getting us fourth even if they were available so he's not going to throw bug money at it in desperation.

Surprised people are saying No to Can. I see him as a great squad player if he can be acquired cheaply. Hes better than Winks and Dier and more than capable in the short term to play in a 3 with lo celso and ndombele (when fit) and then in summer, if any truth in city/utd wanting winks, can replace winks and then we get a true DM. Short term he improves our starting XI and squad. Long term improves squad if for right fee

Mostly agree with this, I’m just not sure he’d be content to be a squad player here at age 26 coming off a title winning season with Juventus.

Only want Can if it’s on loan, he’s an alright player but major deficits in his game, in two years he’s another we’d be struggling to get rid of.

Based collectively on what a number of ITKers have been saying today, it would seem that the next few days ought to be very interesting. With perhaps one or two more surprises... as it would seem that we have been very pragmatic. And you never know what might become available at the end of the window.

Exactly how I read it.

More plausible than Levy telling the people around him "No way we are getting top 4 lol"
