Good for us. Maicon door still open then.

I hear Chelsea are after Maicon.

Anyways, I am not sure Pereira is worth 12-13m, not when we are so hard on money. He is a decent LB, but from what I remember from the WC, he is no Maicon, not even close. And knowing our luck with left backs.............

Latest information is that Porto lowers the asking price to 13. We could offer 11 now, and 2 as bonuses. Our offer as for now is 10+1.5...

Pereira can play LB, LW, LM, and LCM. His versatility alone is worth 10m in my opinion. This move allows Zanetti to move to RB and have Nagatomo sub for both wingback positions. Our formation is going to be quite narrow this season (4-3-2-1) so having players with the capacity to run down the flanks 90mins is a necessity. We know Zanetti, Nagatomo, and Pereira will deliver. Maicon and endless running don't go together. I'd also fear the consistent use of Zanetti as RCM would return.

Porto keep pushing for at least 12m because they have to pay 20% of the transfer fee to CFR Cluj, which means they probably try to net a 10m infusion for their own part.

20% of €12m is €2,4m, so they would be slightly under the €10m mark, while
20% of €12,5m is €2,5m (CFR Cluj fee) => they get exactly €10m! So I believe the deal can surely be concluded for €12,5m Euro, after all they've signed him for just €4.5m!

Biggest obstacle in this deal is probably Maicon. If we can't sell him, I'm afraid Pereira won't come.

Portuguese daily O Jogo says that Inter has raised the offer to 13m, but Porto is waiting because expects some bidding war as Napoli, Chelsea and Russian club are interested. But Inter's offer is the highest (and the only imo) at the moment.

Which is just my point. We have Zanetti, Nagatomo, and don't forget M'Baye (who I think is very talented and composed for his age). I have a feeling M'Baye will overtake Nagatomo this season as our first choice LB. With all these options, why do we need to spend 11-13m on another LB? Wouldn't we be better off, specially since Maicon may be leaving, to go after a top RB instead? Coz while Zanetti can still play there, Jonathan does not inspire the same confidence that Nagatomo and M'Baye do.

dont forget Naga can play RB if needed... he is good with both his feet...

100% agree with Cafe, but can you imagine Maicon actually having a proper fullback opposite him. In a narrow formation like an albero you must have attacking fullbacks and you must have overlapping runs from ur wide mids and ur fullbacks. That would be a site to see I'd love if Maicon would stay. Problem is his salary is just way to high for this clubs new policy and he'd help cut that down the other is some of his good friends already left the club. Maicon lacked motivation along with Lucio Motta Cesar after the tripleta. When Motta left he hinted at the overhaul that was to come. He knew they were going to be shown the door. Imagine tho a motivated Maicon opposite Pereira #19 here we come. One can dream i suppose

Agent: "There is an ongoing negotiation but Porto are dealing with that. As soon as they find an agreement with that club then we will do our part. Who is negotiating? An Italian team but I cannot say which..."

Hurry up already. :p
