He's The best footballer out of all of them. I would have liked Ronald to have gone for him, but unfortunately we have the current agreed embargo.(if there's any truth in that of course).

Don't think he stayed assuming that they would too.

And he wouldn't come here if arsenal were in for him...

No I do t think he did either but it must be a bit annoying for him seeing two of the three "stars" fucking off

It was odds on all three would move IMO. Vardy would have lost me the bet though. I'm not surprised one bit they've been snapped up.

I don't think this deal has anything to do with WBA getting value. I actually think that their chairman is fucking with the kid. If Spurs (who seemingly started this weird game) came in with £35m I imagine WBA would still turn it down.

He will only leave there at the end of his contract or at Xmas for 10-15. It's been a weird one.

Probably don't want to sell him in order to stop Pulis spending on all on players represented by his agent so he can get a phat cut of the money.

So this Higuain to Juventus deal is being reported with a degree of certainty almost everywhere - in much the same way the Pjanic one was - so presumably there is something in it.

I'm very, very surprised. It will be the second most expensive transfer ever (until Pogba is sold). Even with the sale of Pogba I wouldn't think they could afford it. It seems to mark a significant change in strategy to a sort of Bayern model.

In Naples as we speak (well, Sorrento) and I can say with some certainty that Higuain is now regarded as a massive cunt.

La stampa described the signing as a follia calculata. Basically a play to win the CL.

However while I like Higuain, he's often been found wanting at the real sharp end of high stakes games.

He might ensure Juve's domestic hegemony for a couple more seasons but I'm not sure, for that fee, that he's guaranteed (as much as possible) to be someone who will make the final difference at CL level.

Yeah, reports over here of Maradona and fan groups laying in to him. Fair enough probably.

I agree with @GLewis. He's a great player but is he the one to take them to the top? Probably not with his struggles on the big occasions. The price is also ridiculous.

What's your thoughts on the deal?

He does have a tendency to bottle big moments in the big games as you say. However, I am genuinely gutted, he had god like status in Naples, on a par with Maradona and to leave to go to Juve is a bitter pill. He will undoubtedly be the capocannoniere again next season and I can see Juve going very close in the CL. He is also a massive cunt.

I have to agree. He isn't good enough to make the difference in the Champs league.

80M is ludicrous.
