That's the thing. Before he was telling the rumors, now he's the tap-in artist. Telling what deals have been made.
He truly is. Just look at Kiwior move to Arsenal. Before news coming out from Poland there's an agreement he hadn't reported a single thing about it. He may not even know anything about it. Now he's tweeting nonstop about addons, medical and signed documents. I find it really annoying.

The average fan just wants to know his club targets, how negotiations are progressing and when the deal is done. Who gives a fuck about when documents are signed?

It looks like Chelsea are in the market for a rb, just not for the one we would have liked. In France they report Chelsea have made an opening bid for Lyon rb, Malo Gusto

What will chelsea do with all these players? They'll need to get rid of 10 players in the summer.

I have a feeling that Juve will sell McKennie to Leeds, with that money they will bring in Zaniolo from Roma. I highly doubt the latter one will go to Bournemouth. Milan is out of race, so in case Juve is gonna close the deal for McKennie, pretty sure that money will be invested in Zaniolo.

Zaniolo has indeed informed Roma that he's not gonna go to Bournemouth. He would have got there 5.5M salary + bonuses, but I totally understand he ain't gonna sign with them.

Zaniolo to Bournemouth never made sense in the first place. Of course he'd be looking to join a promising side. He's only 23 years old. He's going through a poor form, but a new challenge might revive him.

That'd be a gross salary. Bournemouth cannot pay players more than 3m net. Their highest earner is at 2m net. And that's with the conversion to Euro.

Zaniolo is at just 2.5m net at Roma now.

Players will keep running away from Serie A. This isn't 2000 anymore.

Barely any new infrastructure, doesn't trust talented young players, keeps being a moneysink. La Liga is also in steep decline, but at least in La Liga, young players are developed.

No money league means farmers league. It's time to admit it in 2023.

The new transfer policy should be to buy young British players.

Let them play like 2 games, hype them and sell for 40m to Premier League teams.
