Silva saying he hasn't decided on his future yet

You would hope that we've already agreed a deal with Barca a while ago, its probably up to Gomes now

Couldn’t be more ambivalent about this, to be honest.

I think he’s a top character, and he looks lovely on the ball, especially when he’s being pressed, and when he’s confident he moves very well with it; however, he doesn’t get many assists, nor score many goals, and he’s not great defensively either.

And, as BD said, I completely trust Brands to have already found quite a few alternatives if he doesn’t sign.

Would hurt to have Spurs steal him, though.

I'd personally be surprised if this is who they broke their self imposed transfer ban for, but I wouldn't put it past poch to make him a really effective player. Some sort of mad dembele type just dribble dribble dribble.

Think it smelled slightly like barca rustling, but you know, what happens happens.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Nailed on for spurs. Think he'd have got better next season and especially so in their side.

Gutted. But if I could only have one of the 2 it would have been  zouma definitely.

However it's looking unlikely we will get him too

The general consensus seems like it’s Barca putting stories in the press, trying to flush out bids and get our arse in gear.

They did the same with Mina - linked him with Utd etc., all of which Mina denied when he signed. Said we were the only team in for him.

Find that difficult to believe considering Silva has already said he's a priority with Zouma, it's not in our interests to drag our feet. As others have said id have expected us to have started negotiations ages ago if we genuinely want him

The best thing for me about wanting to sign players that have been on loan; " two for the first team after a loan season," shows we are definitely getting it right.  There's only Yerry Mina left to prove he was worth the fee. All the rest, I think personally, have  been successful in their own right. :)

Can’t really understand the logic that says Brands will have a list of alternatives and on it some who are better yet we’d be not be going for them first.

Surely you’d start at the top of the list at the player you thought was the very best and try and bring them in? If that failed move onto the next one and so on.

Anyway I personally think it’s likely all agreed given what’s been said and the time both sides have had to size up each other. I expect it’s just speculation helping fill up column inches like roughly 99% of transfer gossip.

Gomes might not be at the top of Brands’ list now

But they’ve said they want him haven’t they?

Might be someone more expensive? Maybe Gomes is first on the list. Who knows but he’s not the be all and end all.

There might be a player Brands considers ‘better’ but might cost £15m more. Or a player that’s generally of the same level as Gomes but doesn’t speak English. Or another player who’s club will only consider negotiating to sell, once they’ve got their replacement.

There are so many variables and any DoF worth his salt will plan for every scenario.

I think so, but they’re not going to say otherwise unless he completely bombed during his spell.

Let’s say Brands has two players on his CM/#8 list that he thinks are better than Gomes, but then neither want to come here; Brands would then be in a poor position if neither him nor Silva had previously expressed their interest in signing Gomes permanently.
