    Is Puig that good??? IMO, don't think he is better than Denis Suarez.

    What's uglier - Costa's playing style, his recent goal-scoring record or his face?

    Tough call. :unsure:

    Looking at strikers without a contract right now, there is Arkadiusz Milik (most recently of Napoli). Not sure why he is w/o contract. Is he a total mental case? (then again so is Costa). At least Milik is not ancient (26 years old).

    Costa is proven in La Liga and CAN be unplayable .. there’s absolutely no risk if he’s out of contract imho

    Milik is interesting. former Ajax player.

    he's been frozen out of the Napoli team after he refused to extend his contract and it's gotten personal between himself and De Laurentis (Napoli president). but i don't think he's a free agent until the summer.

    hard hard hard pass on Diego-I-can-start-a-fight-in-an-empty-room-Costa

    you're thinking of his Chelsea days, he isn't the same player now.

    he has 9 goals in 46 appearances over the past 2.5 seasons in LaLiga.

    Maybe playing with Messi can revitalise him ... can’t be much worse than Braithewaite surely

    Jesus. Thiago Silva, Giroud, now this fool. Tito seems to be confusing Barca with a Serie A team. I’m still unsure if he’s just taking the piss or is actually being serious.

    Anyway, just like the other suggestions, Costa ain’t happening. He doesn’t fit our style at all, he’s old, slow, agility of a log of wood, and his numbers aren’t even impressive of late. What the hell is the flip-side here? Smh.

    Aleñá sent on loan to Getafe until end of the season. Good move for him.

    At 7 feet tall you'd expect him to get on the end of just about anything, except maybe Dembele cross. :whistling:

    So we’re getting Fabio Cannavaro’s lookalike Eric Garcia for free. Only few short defenders have been greats. Daniel Passarella, Claudio Gentile, Fabio Cannavaro, Franco Baresi and Carles Puyol.

    he's not that short.

    6 feet tall.

    same height as Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Sergio Ramos, John Terry ...

    transfermarkt.com and wikipaedia both say 6"

    he does look a bit scrawny, but he just turned 20 so he'll bulk up a bit.
