    He was a Left back when he started. He can defend and provide that offensive force from the wing that our club is always looking for.

    Theo had a 24 ME clause. Reported fee we paid negotiating with Atletico was 26-28 ME.

    Ferland Mendy is a better LB than anyone we have. I don't see why we would be upset with that transfer.

    We must bring LB, very strong LB. I adore Marcelo but his form just astonishing horrible and it seems he lack motivation because of no competition.

    It's silly season. You're wrong if you sign anyone, and you're wrong if you don't.

    why are you bringing religion into sports? if he was Christian/Jewish/Buddhist/Atheist would that made him a lesser option?
    I look at players and what they provide, I don't care if they pray to the god of donkeys of the god of money.
    Also, football in france as a whole have a problem if Pogba is the leader of the young generation. He might be talented but he is far from being a role model for professionalism.

    the man can play maybe 3-5 consecutive games before getting injured for another 3-10 games. why even count on someone like that?

    I'm not Muslim, but certainly Mo Salah tearing up the premier league rattles the stereotypes of the xenophobic brexiteers.

    It's about representation. He's not saying Paul is better because of his religion, but he's a representative of that community in a context that is often less than welcoming.

    it ain't rare, right? there's ton of muslim players in European football. We have a muslim as our best player this season. I just don't understand reading a post that will say "I'm proud of Benzema for being the best real madrid player this season because he is a muslim".

    You would be surprised how unaware most people are of footballers' religions. Many think Muslim footballers dont exist.

    Pot calls the kettle black.

    It seems RM must introduce "representation" quotas in their transfer policies. When can we white Slovenians apply?

    You would be surprised how many people don`t give a shit about footballers religious beliefs.

    Agent: If the right offer comes in for Mendy, an agreement will be pursued with Lyon

    The issue being "the right offer" = 80M. For a LB.

    1. There are xenophobic brexiteers. Do you deny that?

    2. Someone says they would personally enjoy seeing a Muslim player on our team and that means quotas now? Utterly absurd comment. Im sure you would personally enjoy if a Slovenian was good enough to play for Madrid. I don't see any though.

    3. They may not care about footballers beliefs, but most people do have assumptions and predispositions about religions generally and representation in the public eye can alter those.

    You wont find a source that says anything higher than 40-45 for Mendy, but sure let's believe "right offer" means double that.

    Where do you come up with this stuff?

    Aulas wouldn't even do that do Florentino.

    Florentino should get Mendy done. Very exciting LB. Mendy with Hazard and Pogba will give some here serious migraines

    This is something you are absolutely wrong about. Tactical/positional awereness is defenitely a talent. You can run headlessly around the pitch and work hard but never even get close to the ball. This is one attribute Pogba for example lacks with or without the ball and is The one thing that holds him back from being truely a worldclass all action mid that his skillset could allow.
