Definitely what they need is another creative forward. They'll be fine without a true striker.

Well he would replace Cesc. There may be moves to follow too, ya know?

If James comes, I wonder if Willian will leave. Only room for 2 behind Lukaku (probably) in Conte's 3-4-3 and Hazard, Pedro, and James would be higher in the pecking order. Willian will probably want more consistently playing time but who knows.

Lukaku going back to Chelsea seems so underwhelming given their budget and ambitions.

Verratti is probably leaving this summer. I hope Juve or Barcelona enjoy the 20 games he's healthy enough to play the #$!&@ #$!&@

Has Tuchel found a club yet? Think Soton want him.

All because they won't splurge £90m on Lukaku, which is hilarious because you lot sold Oscar for £60m, if there's one thing you do not lack that is the cash for Lukaku.

Planning a trip with some fellow banned RAWK friends for Newcastle home at the beginning of March. Will get to sing songs and chant for Rafa to boot.(Ashley will probably fire him before that happens)

Also that week will be the 2nd leg of the round of 16 for Champions League if we qualify. Would be cool if we won the group and that was home but could also be cool to do a European away. I've mentally committed to financially committing to this. Should be good.

Yea it's picked up enough steam that it doesn't seem like a #FAKENEWS tweeter rumor though.

In other crazy summer drama, Milan's 18 year old wunderkind keeper Donnarumma is trying to leave (can't blame him because Milan have been a #$!&@ show since they sold Ibra/Silva).

[Il Giornale] Milan chairman Yonghong Li blocks Donnarumma's possible transfer to Real Madrid, saying he is 'unsellable'. The player risks a year in the stands.

Raiola ready to sue Milan if he's benched for a whole year [Corriere della Sera]

AC Milan legend Enrico Albertosi: "Donnarumma betrayed us, turned his back on a great club that put its faith in him and launched him in Serie A at the age of 17. He might not even be the first choice elsewhere, because he still hasn’t proved that he's a great goalkeeper."


He wants to go to Real Madrid but PSG have offered him a "blank contract" supposedly.

The CR7 stuff it nuts, he gets caught for fiddling his taxes and then wants to jump ship, sounds about right.

I think he's just pissed at Spain in general. Anywhere but United please.

Seems Salah is coming to LFC, medical Tuesday.
Him and Mane on each wing and we will be absolutely flying at opponents. Guess Coutinho drops deeper into midfield.
(Will suck when both have to go to African Cup at the same time)
