    We already convinced him to stay once, zero chance we will force him to stay and say"honor your contract"

    We wouldn't be discussing this had Pique and Umtiti not picked up the yellows simultaneously.
    Pique is out of form, and he if he continue that way we need a proper replacement actually. Umtiti himself is aggressive and will always get those yellow cards. This situation isn't blown out of proportion. It is alarming situation that could hunt us during the whole season.
    When a sporing director say we can't rely on 3 CB only, and Vermaelen can't be relied on.that says a lot about the situation

    No decision has been made yet as far as I’m aware. All Mascherano said was he always discusses it with club but he might decide on his own. He shouldn’t be allowed to leave if it puts the club in a tenuous position. There’s no time for Mr. Nice Guy.

    Out of form... So is Suarez, Rakitic, Gomes, Vidal... Rafinha is still recovering and Arda is a reject. He might as well play with the reserves.

    Midfield along with attack to a lesser extent is way more pressing than letting Mascherano walk out the door and signing another CB over and above Mina which is a great deal.

    I’ve already conceded on Vermaelen and Mina comes in for him while Mascherano stays.

    Now all that considered which area do you think is most alarming?

    I say go for De Ligt, he could become one of the greats...and the perfect CB partner to Umtiti and heir to Pique.

    I would be happy with De Ligt.
    We dont need a starter CB, and he could be great in the future.
    Hopefully we can get him for a decent price aswell.

    We don't need anyone before summer. When Mascherano leaves then get a 3rd CB. 4th can be anyone from B team. It's not like he ever plays.

    I wouldn't be dissapointed if we got a young centerback this winter, and sold vermalean.

    the guy is on first team wages while eating shit, might as-well sell him to some epl team like everton while he's not injured yet who knows when he'll be out for another season and nontransferable.
    getting a young centerback this winter also gives that player the second half of the season to prepare with the team so he'd be sharp and more prepared for the next season.

    Slowly starting to think we might mess this transfer up and he might go to another one of the several other clubs interested, offering way more than 9m.

    Do we have an option to buy Costas? Because if our board is so reluctant to sign a potential world class CB in the winter, we should at least look at him. Especially in the situation we are now in. Our two main guys one card from suspension, the reliable backup guy injured and the fourth guy who is unhappy, made of glass and hasn't played for a very, very long time against a La-Liga level opponent.

    A situation like that in the CL elimination rounds could be suicidal.

    Yeah we have an option to buy him at the end of the season. Rumors are the club is analyzing the idea of buying him but we will have to wait until the end of the season to see.

    Very real possibility.
