      Or they didn’t really want him because they were flush at CB and only were trying to drive up the price for us.

      Is that why they were interested in jonny evans ?

      Ah yeah I know that....was pointing out the idea that the last time City tried nothing happened to those that say whatever City wants the will spend whatever it takes and always get what they want.

      They were after Jonny Evans though and if they didn't want or need him in the summer then the same would surely apply now?

      More accurately, too busy building bridges after being caught with our hand in the cookie jar.

      Yeah them built bridges have really been worth it. We can think when he's lining up for City and lifting the Premier League, "yeah, we done well building them bridges, boss job lads!"

      What's a bit worse is that there will be reports saying we are waiting for encouragement from Saints to open talks, or some crap like that. Whilst City just get on, chuck in the asking price and get him tied down to a 5 year deal at 250-300k a week.

      Again 7KK7 the door was open for them as well as Chelsea this past Summer...why didn't they do it then, and why did the player not push for it....there was no doubt that City were going to be the team to beat even before the season started.

      City despite now needing a CB with Kompany again showing unreliability with fitness and Stones being injured, they only really have Otamendi as regular. Their main priorities in the summer was the FB areas and the keeper. Probably with the intentions of hoping Kompany was over his injury problems.

      Chelsea were never really linked with him, not massively. They were a mess in the summer window, none of their transfers really made any sense.

      Player didn't push for it because he probably thought he was joining us, he made it public he wanted to leave and was talking with Klopp. At the time, we were the only team really in need of a CB.

      Just because they didn't push for this player in the summer doesn't mean they won't now, priorities and targets change as the season goes on.

      That doesn't say we have leaked anything though. All they're doing is guessing. In one sentence they say we didn't want to pay the asking price of 70m as a negotiation tactic but now we do want to pay it? All in the space of a week? Come off it :D. That doesn't even make sense.

      What are you asking? Why I thought it was us that leaked or us that’s interested? I’m only saying it’s apparently us that’s interested and thats why I linked the story I read. Calm your tits and stop being a pedant.

      Google Van Dijk. Reports gathering steam we're close. But Melissa Reddy hasn't made any indication though.

      We really need him. I do not think that he is the only solution but part of it for sure. He needs us and we need him. He wants to play in Champions League and we can offer that chance and we need to solve our defensive issues.

      He needs help to solve our issues but we would be better with him in our team.

      Acquiring him is only part of the solution. We must displace Lovren with him. Imagine we continue playing him alongside Lovren and Migs. :lmao:

      Spending 70m on him only seems logical if we're going to go out and get an actual decent keeper and a defensive midfielder to protect the defence. If we're not going to do either of those things then not much is going to change.

      Who wouldn't want VVD, right? I wouldn't have any problems with us buying him, but I just feel we can strengthen our defensive buying a GK, CB and DM for around £70-£80m, but Klopp really wants him, so it is what it is.

      To be honest, even if that doesn’t happen, the fact he would replace Lovren immediately justifies 70mill well spent. Hell, I’d be happy for us to pay someone 70mill to take Lovren!!
