    Once Alba loses his pace it's going to be comical.

    If he is to extend, I would say add 2 years on his current deal at max.

    Wont be bothered at all if we get rid of him and Saurez next year though.

    I would be all in for a sale of Alba if we could get Alaba, even if he's not the same player as a few years ago. He's so much more complete as a full back that it would be worth it imo. This guy could play as winger/midfielder also, plus he can shoot and deliver a cross. Alba could have Drogba, Bierhoff and Jan Koller in the box, we would still not score any headers with his crosses.

    What do you think about Gaya?

    He could definitely be an option. I just don't think that he is currently better than Alba. From the matches I saw of him, he's almost same type of player just with less attitude and with a better cross. Don't know if his ceiling is that much higher also.

    Fuck. 2023 :O

    Why not wait a year and see if Bayern will be willing to let Alaba go.

    Alba is no means a terrible LB as he's been great for us.

    But if Alba had the technical ability or at least something like Alves or the intelligence of Abidal when it came to Defending, I wouldn't mind giving him a decent deal. But he has neither and he's one of those guys that once his pace is gone he won't have much left besides his ability to link up with Messi on the left hand side.

    Alba is one of the top LBs imo
    His successor should be Alaba or Alonso, no one else

    Let's just focus on our real problems. Alba is not a real problem. We can hardly improve that position, since the guys who are better can't be signed.

    True. It's not our worry right now.

    While I agree with that we'll still need to adress this issue at least until next summer. Whether we'll renew his contract (which is more likely) or we'll decide to get whatever we can for him next year and try to find a replacement.

    he is overrated. He can only do low crosses, not high, doesn't defend well and can't beat anyone 1vs1 off the dribble.

    He is only fast and good in the passing game. In 2-3 years his pace is gone and he will decline fast.

    problem with Alba is that he is always annoyed.

    everyone will be annoyed if your goalkeeper who people say is the best in the world makes stupid mistakes like De Gea did
