This is great. The 5 sub rule is especially useful for a team which plays a 352 formation. Seeing what the formation demands of them, 2 of those subs would invariably be accounted by the wingbacks. Add a forward, a midfielder, and a defender, and you're set.
Does it increase the likelihood of them going for De Vrij? That would be fantastic.
It would sick if this makes them focus on Skriniar. While a bidding war between them and PSG is good, we should not let him go at all. Also what if they throw a crazy number for Skriniar, like 90m, but it is offered as an exchange for Lukaku. That would be the worst ever.

"Arsenal made an offer of 98 million euros to Napoli for forward Victor Osimhen. The Italian club has not yet given the answer.
This is already Arsenal's second offer for Osimhen The first offer of 60 million euros was rejected.
Last season, 23-year-old Victor Osimhen played 32 matches for Napoli, scored 18 goals and provided 6 assists. His contract with the club runs until the summer of 2025.
Strange to see Karpin's transfer was more than Zidane's, Seedorf's and Romario's, Suker's and Djorkaeff's transfers. I hated Russian NT back then. In 94, I did 3 Palo Alto games, Brazil-Russia, Sweden-Russia and Russia-Cameroon. Karpin was in the team. Got lucky in Rose Bowl with Romania-Argentina and in Palo Alto, USA-Brazil quarter final game. So 5 world cup games in total.
