Summer transfer window 2018

<< < (2/3) > >>

I don't get the link to Moses Simon. 2017/18 was his third season in Belgium's Jupiler League and he managed 6 goals and 3 assists in 33 matches, compared to our own Taiwo Awoniyi, who was on loan there last season, who contributed 10 goals and 8 assists in 31 games. Last season was Simon's most productive one also.  :o

Courtois is refusing to sign another contract with Chelsea and only has a year left on his deal.

Although he may like a move to Real, they have their eyes on De Gea and Alisson. Alisson wants to move to Real.

Chelsea are looking at Jasper Cillessen, Barca's second choice keeper because of the Courtois contract situation.

Therefore, let's make Chelsea and offer for Courtois. They get a fee, and we get a keeper that is in the top 5 in the world.

If we're going down the route of looking at the likes of Pope, McCarthy and Thomas Strakosha of Lazio, then we'd be better off giving Ward the shirt until January, and giving him a free run as no1, like Karius had last season. We may have our own Pope/McCarthy etc by the end of the season, without any outlay.

Courtois will not leave Chelsea for us. His wife/partner lives in Madrid with his son and he wants to go back there. If Oblak leaves Atletico, he'll return there.

Certainly if he leaves Chelsea it will be somewhere nearer Spain if not Spain itself.

Plus Chelsea would never sell to us and don't need to.

So now we have the world's most expensive goalkeeper.

Ward gone, mixed feelings on that one, Mignolet linked with a £12.5M move to Besiktas (much more likely than the rumoured Barca link), and Karius has thrown his toys out of the pram over Becker.

We need an experienced pro as no2 and let Karius rebuild his career elsewhere.

Step forward Pepe Reina. I know he's just gone to AC Milan, but a UEFA loophole would allow us to sign him, and then maybe see about him becoming goalkeeping coach from next season.

What qualifications has he got apart from used to have been a great goalkeeper to warrant being a goalkeeper coach?
