Rumors of Juventus selling either Vidal or Pogba make no sense to me. Those two with Pirlo are a top 2 central mid-field in Europe. They disappointed last year in the UCL, if they want to do better that trio has to stay intact.

There was a Fulham thread before a Chelsea thread?

Are they having financial issues that are requiring them to sell one of them?

I've seen Vidal to ManU rumors and of course the ~$80 million Pogba to Chelsea rumors.

They would have to be in really dire straights to sell either one. Either player is basically irreplaceable.

Saw the Alex Song and Khedira rumors today too.

If pairing with Matic, I would prefer more of an offensive CM so I really like the Pogba play.

How does Oscar fit into plans next year? Brasil played him out wide but I assume Cesc will take over his #10 role.

Does Oscar have the skills to drop back and become more of a CM orchestrator? I can't see him being formidable on defense.

For 20 million? He isn't worth half that right now. We fleeced Barcelona on that one.

Khedira


Is a take for any team. Solid player.

Yeah, interesting that they both are being so hotly discussed on the market.

Anyone heard when the Filipe Luis deal is set to go through?

I imagine that we will see action around:
- Luis getting signed
- Something happening with Lukaku (probably dealt , but maybe he stays)
- Another central midfield player to pair with Matic
- Based on the Lukaku decision, selling Ba

He isn't an exciting player to watch (personal opinion), but he is very good at what he does. Gets forward occasionally, drops backs and is solid defensively, and lets the game play through him.

Why would Real Madrid want to deal him? I don't remember hearing about them being connected with a CM to replace his services.

Those are usually the best ones to have.

No clue.

ETA: To defray the cost of Kroos and James? Only thing I can think of.

I thought he looked much more comfortable playing in the midfield when deployed there later in the season. Kid might not be a beast, but he's got some hustle.

As for dealing ba, isn't it a similar situation to Fernando's where his wage is going to make things difficult?
