Speaking of Ronaldo, it's reported he isn't eligible for Growth Decree anymore. Considering both he and Lukaku left Italy at the same period the rumours we needed to get Lukaku done till end of June were accurate. I am bringing it up because it was a topic on FIF whether those rumours were true or not.

No one in Italy can afford him. He would have to accept 1/3 of what he currently earns to find a team in Italy. It would be hilarious if he goes to PSG.

Zero chance he goes to PSG. He won't be a starter there. I can't think of a CL team in top tier leages that has a place for him in the starting line up.

He is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Doesn't want to be a man utd but no big enough club will take him.

Depay is a solid signing for Rube, he compliments Vlahovic much better than Morata, who is basically just an older, worse version of Vlahovic. Depay is almost over a year younger, better signing than bringing Morata back in every aspect.
Depay lacks end product and efficiency - this won`t go down well in Serie A. Also, how good is his defending?
Allegri wants Morata because the player already knows what Max wants from him and he has been trained into that spirit for years now. So glad that Atletico are not accepting the low-ball offer. Morata scored 2 goals in the first game of the league.

So who will take him?
Who cares? Let us worry about the Caicedos and Keita Baldes out there....

Nunez? Went to Liverpool for 85 million and has been shit :)

Other than that… not sure of any other Uruguayan strikers anyone mentioned other than Cavani. He is a free agent

Augustin Alvarez - Sassuolo.

How is Julian going? I never understood why these young players jump to the biggest club. Halaand will dominate that league and club for the next 10 years, everyone else is Beta.

He played a bit here and there. City also sold Jesus and Sterling, so now they only have 2 strikers - Haaland and Alvarez, plus two possible false 9 players -> Bernardo Silva and Foden.

I'm sure he'll get enough playing time for the first season.

Focus on the freebies guys.

Marcus Thuram.
Yeah, it's pretty clear we gonna target these ones. We have two forwards signed for next season. Dzeko will leave and Lukaku continuing is uncertain given the coach change at Chelsea I think.

Because we got Lukaku. And after that, our forward spots were filled.
