He would be a massive signing for us if we could pull it off in the summer. Congrats on the national team call up.

Shame for Suso's injury. It was expected that he would get a call-up to if there wasn't the injury

he is good but he aint anything special, his shooting, and decision making is poor, even his dribbling needs alot of improvement, he got speed but he is still no where near any WC wingers like robben, Ribery, etc.., he is addition to this weak milan side because he took place of useless Niang, but hell he won't be able to make it in any big competitive team.

From my post in the match thread:

- Deulofeu : do I have to say something? He's qualitywise by far the player who takes Milan on his shoulders and carries it. Almost everything we create passes throuh his feeds. Almost everything that passes his feed becomes a threat. And then his defensice workrate is top-notch. And on top of all that he somehow manages to still have energy to run like a bullet in the 90th minute. What a player we have here guys, what a player

Obviously I believe very much in his qualities. Robben at his age was being handled from Chelsea to Real Madrid where people considered him a talented failure (something like Depay). Of course Deulo today is nowhere nesr Ribery or Robben, but those are two of the best wingers this sport has ever seen (when not injured though...), it's tough to compare him to the very best. Deulo is on the verge of becoming world class or "only" a very good player. It also depends what team he'll have around him in the next years, if his teammates will be able to express his talents (like Robben did when he finally arrived to Bayern) or not.

Where do people get 18m from? We do not have an option to buy

Barca have a 12m option, they might activate it and keep him in the squad or sell on for profit
Even if they don't activate the clause, i cant see Everton letting him go for a reasonable fee. If the take over won't take place before the summer, i honestly can't see us keeping Geri (I'm also worried for Gigio & DES who both have expiring deals)

Because Niangs clause. 6M for the loan and 12M when he reaches a certain amount of games or so if I'm not recalling it wrong.

I think Deulo will go for something around 22-25M. And that's with the thats-how-mercato-works-today supplement. I'd take him for that money, he's too talented and young to pass out. I doubt there is much better quality around the same age for that money realistically avaiable in today's mercato.

To move that discussion into another direction: Keita or Deulo, who do you consider the better deal? The one is rumoured to leave for 30M, which is a little bit too much considered his inconsistency and hot-minded temper, but Lazio has high demands as they know many teams have already set their eyes on him and someone will pay the asking-price. Deulo on the other hand has been on a low profile since his Everton days, and since he's not so a goal-machine I think the circle of real interested parties will stay little. Without upcoming biding war this could lead to a pricetag of 22-25M, not more. Maybe more around 22M, which is a big diference to what I expect will be Keitas price, however at this very moment I prefer Deulo (on the pitch).

Whatever you accuse Gerard of having Keita also has. Keita has Serie a experience. I'm not picking a side here, I'm just saying

i'm sure he can still refuse to go back to barca. his cost would depend on how many years left in his contract. but milan can workout with barca and buy him from there too(similar to boatang deal). so i think we can buy him in a fair deal though that depends if he wants to be here.

IMO Deulo has more speed and better dribbling, and his defensive workrate is immensive (Keita's is not so), while Keita is a physical beast and still quite fast, can use his body to get past the players.

I also thought about the argument «Serie A experience» but Deulo is an example how class outplayes experience. Or at least he doesn't look like he had or still has to adapt to Serie A at all and he just came here a month ago. I find that quite impressive.

yeah we'll see that in a couple months time, it always ends the same.

What do you mean, what will we see in a couple of months? If his defensive contribution will fade away?

Of course it will, if we were to sign him permanently, he's working hard to impress like many others here before

Yeah I don't believe very much in this theory. Why impress now and then rot the bench? It's not like we're paying huge contracts. He can earn much more on other places.
