      Think he is the real deal. Just the calibre of player we should be after. Very exciting if true.

      I honestly, do not know him. Is he better than ours ???

      He is Kante Mk II. He can play DM , CM or AMC, but I think he is best deployed as a box-boxer.

      Thanks mate. If he's half of Kante, we would be ok :)

      Agree.

      A 'Kante' is exactly what we should be buying in CM.

      Who would he replace in our team and what type of player is he in terms of anyone you can think off?

      He could play anywhere in the mid-field and is considered box-box....general consensus is he would push Lallana, common sense says he would be playing anywhere the manager could get him on the pitch.

      He's Kante but with more of an attacking impetus.

      What general consensus? The way we are playing right now, Lallana isn't leaving the field for Keita.....Gini, Can or Lucas yes indeed.

      Speaking of Lallana FL and admittedly slightly off topic, where do you see his role if Cou does drop into midfield?

      He's clearly not going to take Mane's spot and I think 1 of Can/Keita etc would not be enough cover behind these two except perhaps against real bus parkers?

      Sure he'll definitely come in should either Cou or Mane be out, could he potentially move wide left? I wouldn't have thought so.

      That's what  I've been thinking. Some of his better games, you'll notice he'll drift all over the field so I don't think it's a stretch to see him be able to play either side. Here's another thought...if Jürgen goes forward with a diamond midfield and two strikers,  could we see Mane play more forward as the second of two strikers? Dunno if it makes sense, honestly asking.

      Either way, I think we've seen that Kloppo is in love with Adam and what he brings to the side, not just  attacking sense but also defensively so I don't see him being dropped for anyone at this point. Arguably the best player in England currently so he's got the cred to keep his spot unless he goes off the boil.

      Keita will be "fighting" for the 8 or 6 position, but not 10, especially when we have Lallana , Coutinho and Firmino.

      A diamond is interesting mate, never really thought of that to be honest.

              Firmino   Mane
                  Coutinho
              Keita       Lallana
                      Can
       New LB New CB Matip Clyne
                      Migs

      Certainly works for getting the best players we currently have into the team. With all the talk of Coutinho going into the 8 role I honestly hadn't considered him moving up to the 10, but it's possible, or just switching with Lallana and him playing the 10. Food for thought.

      He's a DM and would sit next to Wijnaldum/Can/Henderson, while Cou/Lallana occupy the top berth in the triangle.

      I don't mind a diamond, but if we keep the same full backs as last season, I don't think it's the right formation for us.

      I prefer us to go 4213/433 with a left sided Mane (as well as the original on the right :D) and Lallana/Coutinho in midfield. I think we'll have enough protection with Keita/Wijnaldum and Can/Hendo.

      And don''t forget Firmino's work rate and pressing, he will add that bit more solidity in the midfield when he drops off, and this time, when he drops off, we will have 2 runners ahead of him oppose to 0 when Mane was out :D

      Agree with this point mate, another reason why Trent needs to speed up on his defensive development because him at RB would be perfect for what we need in attack from a diamond.

      Milner is just bad in all formations in my opinion, he just doesn't have the outside threat.

      I prefer us to go 4213/433 with a left sided Mane (as well as the original on the right ) and Lallana/Coutinho in midfield. I think we'll have enough protection with Keita/Wijnaldum and Can/Hendo.

      That's all I had in mind for us next season mate, but FL did throw an interesting one in there that has some merit imo.

      And don''t forget Firmino's work rate and pressing, he will add that bit more solidity in the midfield when he drops off, and this time, when he drops off, we will have 2 runners ahead of him oppose to 0 when Mane was out

      Yep, a left sided Mane would be very nice, especially with Cou dropping deeper, would terrorise any defence that.

      Regarding Mane playing as one of two strikers in a diamond, I've been having the exact same thought today. Mane would provide Coutinho with the weapon that he rarely has in Sturridge, somebody to run onto the through balls and who will get in behind the defence.

      Can

      Lallana   -   Keita

      Coutinho

      Mane   -   Firmino

      Firmino doesn't get enough goals to lead the line on his own but leaving him out of the side kind of takes away the whole "defend from the front" philosophy that Klopp has ingrained into the players.

      I think Purple Monkey makes a good point in regards to our full backs though. We'll need them to be a lot more successful in attack compared to what they have been this season.

      One thing I like about the team is the flexibility of a number of the players to play in different positions, Klopp needs to use that to his and our advantage a lot more.

      So on one hand you've only seen youtube clips of him, and are telling others that you don't find him as a special player. 
       
      Whilst on the other hand you accuse others  of having watched only youtube videos and discard their opinions for that reason.

      By that logic you should not take your own opinion seriously too.

      I would have loved to see your opinion on Mane, before we signed him. Perhaps it would've been of the same logic too.

      Leipzig are a high performing team, they finished 2nd in the Bundesliga... Also, every transfer is a gamble.

      He has played a limited amount of games at a high level, I don't recall seeing him in the champions league and by all accounts not many have seen him play.

      So using that I am deeming that spending 50 million is a big gamble


      As for Mane - my opinion on him before we signed him was that he had some good games for Southampton, but needed to be more consistent - which in the limited games he has played for us he has shown more consistency
