    Biggest transfers: 

    -Jack Grealish to Man City for £100m
    - Lukaku to Chelsea for £97m [UPDATED]
    -Jadon Sancho to Man United for £73m
    -Achraf Hakimi to PSG for £51.3m
    -Ben White to Arsenal for £50m
    -Raphael Varane to Man United for £42.7m
    -Upamecano to Bayern Munich for £38m
    -Ibrahima Konate to Liverpool for £36m

    Fan of Liverpool and Barcelona here, and I'm very disappointed with the transfers of Liverpool. (and Barcelona too with Messi being let go for FREE).

    -MESSI TO PSG (CONFIRMED)

    Man United with Varane and Sancho will probably become PL title challengers.

    Jack Grealish £100m transfer - overpriced transfer, typical to a British player.

    Don't think Arsenal will improve much despite the Ben White transfer :p

    Grealish is expensive, but he could be absolutely unbelievable at City.  Imagine if him and Foden can develop a good understanding together, what Man City will be like over the next 6 or 7 years!  I think despite the transfer fee, they've made a brilliant signing there.  

    Varane and Upamecano are both absolute STEALS at that price.

    No confirmed news on that yet. Rumours are Man City or PSG, although looks like Man CIty doesn't have the money after signinig Grealish.

    Don't they play in similar positions? On the left wing? (Or CAM). Would have preferred they signed Kane, but looks like Spur rejected their 100m offer, which I think is already overpriced for injury-prone Kane. 

    Have to agree on the two defenders. I'm surprised RM let Varane go. Not going to be happy next year seeing how much Man United's defense have improved :(

    Liverpool always disappoint transfer wise, we never go after big names :( Konate should help depth wise, hopefully stay healthy . Varane a steal, grealish overpriced af, wouldn't be anywhere near 100 if he played for Ireland lol. Didn't even start for England. But, he is very good, Messi woulda been better :c .

    PSG gonna have a god squad. Liverpool still in desperate need of new attackers in the mix, Jota won't cut it, and man city , United and Chelsea all have improved even with decent squads. We, barely have. Lukaku going Chelsea also.

    This transfer window has been total loss for Real Madrid so far by losing Ramos and Varane! I hope they recover good.  

    And yeahhh, most probably Mbappe will be a madridista soon!



    And poor Barca fans! Hope they recover losing Messi . { being honest no team or fans will recover from losing one of best in the world. I know, I still miss Ronaldo at Real Madrid}

    Ikr. Liverpool should have gone for some big names after they win CL and PL, but nope.. and it's a bit too late now. Currently looking more like they will rely on Jota and Minamino instead of signing another reliable striker. 

    If PSG managed to sign Messi too (they are the favourites right now), DAMNN!!!!

    Chelsea should have signed Lukaku and Man United should have signed Morato years ago lol.

    Really?? Mbappe to RM? Haven't seen reports on that. 

    Should have let Messi go last year imo. It was clear there was no way Messi alone could have carried Barca to trophies anyways.

    Agree. Would prefer he comes to PL, but reality is, not a lot of clubs can afford his wages atm so...

    quite excited as a united fan, sancho and varane are exciting upgrades to needed positions. wish we sorted our cdm issue though, but what can you wish for with our board.

    messi i think his only realistic destination is psg, as much as it pains me to say. theres just no other club who can afford him rn.

    united signing varane for cheaper than arsenal signed ben white makes me laugh so much xD

    Sell Pogba, and then Man United will be able to afford a CDM :p

    Ben White being more expensive than all the above defenders is quite funny haha. Overpriced because he's English, although he's quite young so an investment for the future too I guess.

    Interesting to see Inter holding out for top dollar on Lukaku 

    I still think their young striker Abrahams is good value at a reported £40m

    Grealish gets paid but they wouldn't let him kick? A strange world we live in.

    No shade him, I'd get all I could too.

    Im a Liverpool fan as well. We usually dont pull off 'showbiz' signings that well. We often overpay for players who arent worth it ... It is often our other signings which do well. ie we pay a bit for them, good strong money and get a great player. Even if they werent intended as a key signing.

    Grealish is so over rated it isnt funny. Man City over paid for him big time :P

    We sold Sterling to Man City a while ago. They overpaid :P Hes a bit of a headless chicken still despite him now being a 'experienced' player :P

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    On liverpool im not impressed with us letting wijnaldan go. Hes a quality player a player of great ability. We cant replace him by spending £10 million on a new player. Its going to cost more like £30 or £40 million for us to get a player of his ability.

    We made a mistake in letting him leave.

    He's too soft for EPL.  

    All those tears though, if Barca means so much to him he'd take a big pay drop and allow them to afford good players around him, but no, he'd rather pocket hundreds of millions a year, fair enough but don't make out you don't have a choice.

    I know right?  did they not watch the ECL, especially the comeback against Barca, when we won it?
