So did we or did we not accept terms with Sevilla for Alberto Moreno for 17.9m? I really like this with the signing of Emre Can. Gonna have some versatility back there. I like Lallana but 25m is too much already and I'd like Xherdan Shaqiri over him anyways.

 

Word is we have agreed to the fee, but how that fee should be paid still remains up in the air. Sevilla want it all up front, LFC want to spread it over two fiscal years. I would imagine the deal will get done, as Moreno wants to come here.

Multiple websites reporting that Arsenal negotiating with Madrid over Iker Cassilas. 

 

Inevitable. Iker wasn't going to spend another year as a part time starter. Hope this means RM is ready to seriously pursue Courtois or even ter Stegan, but I doubt it. More likely we just let Diego be the #1 for a year....

Also the word out of Spain is RM will sell Morata if (and only if) RM has a buy back option after 2-3 years for the same price they sell him for. Not looking like Morata will be departing. Especially after Morata himself said on twitter he was all in for Real Madrid and looked forward to being there for many years to come.

Well, ter Stegen is headed to Barca. I think Mourinho has told Courtois that he wants to retain him.

Ah damnit that's right! I would think so too regarding Courtois, but to the same point will Cech or Courtois accept being part time starters? 

 

Time to go back to the drawing board and look at some other young European keepers. 

 

Begovic comes to mind of course.

I doubt they will accept it. It might be the right time to move Cech. His value is still high, but you could have a younger Courtois for more than a decade.

Asmir Begovic was on Liverpool's radar before we decided on Mignolet. Begovic is a solid keeper for sure.

Yea, he or Butland would probably be the guys I would look at if they can't get Courtois. My distant third would be de Gea.

I want Arsenal to get Hugo Lloris not Iker.

I love Iker but I'm sort of happy he's leaving Real. Casillas is possibly a few years away from retirement. However, he provides great leadership qualities in the locker room.

If we could land Courtois AND Vidal/Pogba this summer, I'll be extremely comfortable going into the 14-15 season. I'm still holding out that we move Marcelo and replace him R. Rodriguez (develop him behind Coentrao).

I'm sorry, but this made me laugh. A RM fan saying a few more of the best players in the world and I'd be comfortable...

There's a ton to fear this summer. There's rumors about Di Maria, Varane, and Benzema being targeted. Then there's Xabi's health and age to look at. Normally, it wouldn't be an issue but we're looking to sign Suarez and Vidal or Pogba this summer. As a result, there will be casualties.
