I hope this is true.

Tottenham want to sign Manchester United's England midfielder Jesse Lingard, 27, for 30m. (Daily Star Sunday)

Watched the first 3 episodes of the Spurs thing on Amazon, Alli comes across as at least being able to string a sentence together compared to some of the others, and seems quite a nice kid. Going to United isn't going to solve his issues though, he needs a manager that is going to be making him the centre of the side.

Having watched the same number of episodes he comes across as a lazy shit.

Tell you who I did like though, and didn't expect to - Harry Winks. Came across as a nice, down-to-earth kid in the bits about him playing his way up through the ranks at the club, getting an international cap and taking part in the community scheme at the care home. Shouldn't be anywhere near the England squad mind, but that's not his fault.

Just putting this out there, but Riqui Puig looks like he's out of the picture at Barcelona. 21yo central midfielder, played a dozen games in the first team last season (and 20-odd for Barcelona B). If he's available at a sane price, I'd be all over him.
The story I read was they wanted to loan him out

Just seen the PL table.

We are comfortably mid-table, above Manure and not put a foot wrong yet!

Riqui Puig and Mungo Bridge are the future.

Having watched a few 5 minute excerpts, I must have missed the bits where Alli managed to string a sentence together.

I think the priority now has to be a central midfielder.  We'll be starting with Hourihane, who despite his improvment after lockdown isn't really good enough to start every week, and after that we're into the likes of Nakamba and Lansbury, neither of whom are nearly good enough.

I agree.  We  need a solid option to go alongside Luiz and allow McGinn to push further forward.  A better version of Nakamba.

They're our feeder club - they earnt that right when they managed to keep us down to only beating them 3-0. They can retire his shirt number now that he's finally going to get a move to a big club.

MOTD did a piece on how effective McCarthy and McArther were for Palace yesterday. There's going to be games where we will need 2 midfielders to do a similar job. Luiz stepped up after lockdown to show he could be one but in terms of defensive midfielders, there's only Nakamba who could be the other. If we don't think he can do that job, we need an upgrade.

I was hoping we would sign somebody like James McCarthy to add a bit of experience to the squad.

For me the bit that told the actual truths rather than acted up bits was the way Mourinho talks to the medical staff....he comes across as a throughly obnoxious arse

Wonder if PSG would like to sell us Idrissa Gueye? I can but dream :-) The way they keep changing the squad hes sure to be out of favour soon
