I fucking hate Dembele. He's all the worst things about modern players all rolled into one piece of shit.

Some of it is certainly not his fault, namely the obscenely inflated transfer fee that Barca paid for him. But beyond that, he has a poor attitude and extremely overblown opinion of himself. While he's very talented, he's inconsistent as shit.

He's on some ludicrous wages which he never deserved to begin with. Now he and his agent are asking for a disgusting amount of money to renew? (agents have become exponentially more annoying in the past few years).

I also have a general disdain or cynicism over the exact kinds of players that 14 year old FIFA fanboys gush over. i.e. young, flashy dribblers and tricksters. Style-over-substance players.

Most of all, he's injured so often it's farcical. I hope he ends up at some middling La Liga team on a teachers salary.

I don't know where you come up with these, but it couldn't be more spot on :D

So 21 and younger are exempt IF they are homegrown. So clubs buy young kids, nurture them at their academies for 3 years and then the loan rally continues. Almost nothing changes in this regard. Change is these clubs cannot buy and loan immediately these young kids. Like we did with Agoume. Who's btw not home-grown for us and probably will never be (he's been at Inter for only 1 season, turns 20 next month so he even can't have 2 full seasons at Inter before he hits 21).

What are you guys realistically looking to get from him as a transfer fee? I don’t see anyone paying a lot for him unless it’s someone desperate like Newcastle.
