      I don't think it's his opinion really, more what he's been told to say by the club. After the Van Dijk debacle I think the club are more than happy to use the media to misdirect things until the deal is pretty much done.
      strange opinion. I am not sure any journalist will deliberately put out garbage because it ruins their own reputation. He would not say what the club told him to say, the club fed him garbage or he made up garbage.

      I still find this one odd, everything was set, then if you only focus on our side, nothing.

      No other players signed weeks after the deal broke down. (#10 role - I'm not counting Shaqiri)

      I get the feeling if this was truly off we would at least be close to signing an alternative

      But I've long stopped trying to understand what we do in the transfer market and I guess I'll just look forward to us smashing west ham on the 12th

      I entirely agree with the owners on this one in that you don't spend £50mil on a player who has a question mark over his fitness plenty of other way to spend £50 mil on a player. ITs dead they have moved on and Jürgen is happy with his squad

      But in seriousness it is a bit weird why the club have not moved onto anyone else if Fekir is completely rejected.

      My guess is the money has run out now. Dont think Alisson arrives if Fekir does. Karius' form made that move a priority.

      Alisson was coming regardless

      The club nor the manager would be as knee jerk after a couple of pre season games

      On taking a gamble on a dodgy knee..

      Fergie paid a British record fee of £19 million at the time for Van Nistelrooy...it paid off well for all concerned..

      I don't buy the you cannot comeback from a knee injury & not perform to the highest level.

      Oh of course but then that risk has to be taken into account with the asking price.

      Seems like Aulus doesn’t want to accept that there is a risk.

      I sure hope it’s possible otherwise buying Ox is never going to pay off.

      Mate, for every Nistelrooy, there is a Hargreaves! What we'll end up with, you never know!

      Not sure thats true. The rhetoric at the time was that we had to stand by Karius and that we weren't that keen to spend that much on a keeper.

      Not saying the Fekir deal fell through because we needed a keeper or that we haven't been tracking Allison for a long time.

      But I don't think the money is there for both,  I reckon the knee put us off, we're not interested in anyone else if we cant have Fekir so we've decided to spend that instead on a keeper.

      We've certainly never spent such huge sums of money like that in the past and we've already spent a good amount this window.

      There's no precident for a net spend as big as 200 million so cant see that happening.

      Another 60/70 million on top of what we have now would be lovely from my POV but I don't think its on Fenways to do list.

      For the record not having a go at FSG here. I'm happy with the window and believe this squad should be in the argument for all the trophies next season.

      Just think the money has a dried out now and it will be merely a question of recouping some of that back with selling some of the fringe squad.

      OK so where are we net spend at the moment after factoring in the Countinho money.
      We've brought in Keita(54m), Fabinho(40.5m), Shaqiri(13.2m) and Alisson(£56.25m), for a combined amount of £164m so not that much more than £140m we got for Coutinho? Surely we had more than £24m in the transfer kitty this season, plus we'll recoup some money in player sales, probably at least £50-60m.
      In summary I reckon if we want Fekir we easily have the money for it.

      Perhaps but like I say the precident isnt there with fenway.

      OH you mean like how they keep smashing the records in buying the most expensive defender and goalkeeper, yeah I suppose you are right.
      Look we all know they aren't an oligarch or Oil Sheik with infinite money but this argument that they don't invest is really becoming a bit silly now.

      Bottom line with player sales I think we are going to be plus £30m at least so IF Jürgen wants to buy another player then we will, but if we don't then don't pin it on FSG pin it on the fact that Jürgen did not want to.

      Like you guys, all I want is perfomance on the pitch, we can bi*ch all we want if it is'nt going to plan, but this too early, hopefully Fekir will be here, but we go again regardless. calm down lads

      All I could find out yesterday is that there are concerns about his health.

      It has nothing to do with money.

      They don’t want another Lallana/ Sturridge situation for the price Lyon is seeking.

      Jürgen tell you this whilst you were doing the pitch lad? 🙄
