Jesus Christ man. We?ve been linked with him for 5 minutes and people who have never watched him are already forming opinions about him.

Well who watched Diaz before he came.

Jeez cmon - you hear a name you watch highlights and you get a feeling. It isnt set in stone what that player will be but its also natural.

The guy doesnt look that good from highlights and he is older and he is playing in Portugal - Diaz looked better. If we are making this move to save money that too is natural and as stated I'm fine with that if it means we lock up our starters.

To me though it doesnt look like an upgrade - that seems wishful thinking

To me this is a clear signal that we have no intention of fulfilling our option on Diaz. Maybe management has decided that he's good but not worth such an investment. If Otavio can deliver the same this is wayyy cheaper. Guy looks just like him on the field :lol:
I like Diaz but so far i wouldnt pay 25mil for him.

RMCSport: Marseille gave an ultimatum to Thauvin. Within 48 hours he has to decide what he’ll do. If he doesn't answer, he’ll be out of the squad.

Also Otavio already had covid so there's another plus :D

Otavio seems to have been one of the leagues best players this season. Hmmmm.... out of the blue. Very Maldini style.

Let him come, he can only do more good than harm for us in the chase for a Champions League and even possibly the Scudetto.

Tomori explodes and we buy him we literally have a defence for the future

8 years later and we are now hearing about him when Oscar went from starlet to Brazil / Chelsea playmaker to disappearing from the world stage :D

Yeah, at some point he was playing really well for both Chelsea and Brazil. He had some bad moments in Chelsea later on (in teams who were not very good anyway) but he could still easily play in top clubs in top leagues.

Really a waste he's playing in China.

Adding a competent right winger with pace, trickery & a good cross like Thauvin with Zlatan up front will be a deadly combination. We need more assists coming from the right.

Marseille wants him out? Only 6 months left on his contract. 5 million and you’re there. Thats a calculated risk. And considering our position in the league regarding champions league money its a no brainer to me imo.

Thauvin and Otavio in with Samu and Brahim out is an upgrade. Otavio is good enough as a backup and is versatile. Otavio alone is not exciting but with Thauvin, a definite starter joining, Otavio is a good signing to cover AM, LW and RW.

Saele is a very good player, adds a lot of balance, does dirty work, runs 12km... having one different, more attacking rw would help yes. Shame Samu is just not that guy. I respect Samu but quality is not there.

Yeah a real shame - yes he got paid but we all got robbed

I really liked him from the first time I saw him at junior WC when he was playing deeper.

Finally looked up some Tomori YouTube clips.

Damn, why were we even after Simakan with this guy around? He looks like a CB that is fast like a winger and can even dribble his way through anything he wants.

I mean Otavio for free on a 1.5mil contract is good either way..we can ship him on for profit anytime we want and considering the low salary, every shitty club in serie a could afford that

This guy costs 30M, Simakan was 18M. 3 years younger, cheaper salary. A player they followed for 1 year. We wanted to buy Simakan, Tomori is a loan (for now).
