    Bayern M went for Gravenbach, they have sabitzer,goretzka, kimmich and probably someone else on that position. No way they will go for him.

    We don't have one though, and this is a bit wishful thinking tbh.
    We didn't produce a single good DM since Busquets popped up in 2008, that is 14 years.
    Heck, most midfielders we produced since him didn't really prove themselves against test of time. Jury still on Nico and Gavi. My hopes isn't that high for both btw but they have potential.

    The thing is, older players like Xavi, Busquets or even Cesc started as defensive midfielders and developed into more attacking role. Even Iniesta was CM originally.
    It is tough to imagine doing it backwards, developing a CM into DM. We have done it with Motta ages ago tbf but tough to see.
    If Nico doesn't work out next season, spending for DM is top priority tbh.

    Zubimendi is the Liga choice sadly, although I am hearing good things about Fran Beltran from Celta. Danilo from Palmiras is another option

    The problem is we don't have an elite experienced midfielder next to Busquets, like Chelsea had with Kante. Frenkie is a letdown, Pedri is frankly overrated imo bar some bits of genius, and Gavi is not ready. Kessie is not a great player.
    You forget the bigger problem, the midfield set up.

    Sabitzer was disaster last season and we don't know how well new signing will adopt. They can go for him just to show they can but I doubt it as well

    Few million differance between Frenkie and Cucu. There's levels to this selling game. I'm off to join the Brighton School of Business for Football Clubs and Sailors.

    Meltdown on redcafe will be epic.

    Get some variables over those 70, like 10 or something + Alonso, and it's a good deal.

    As long as we get rid of all Frenkies salary, agree.

    Doubt they will also pay that. We will have to deduct and pay his deferred wages form the transfer fee. 70 + Alonso + them covering De Jong's wages completely so we don't pay anything is a great deal. I reckon we owe more than 10m to De Jong.

    One thing is certain though, we need to sell here.

    They were going to have a big clear-out, instead they will end up having to play McFred in midfield again

    Cucurella is maybe top-3 in the world in his position, which is notoriously difficult to cover for teams, whereas Frenkie is good, but maybe wouldn't even break into top-20 for CM's. That's the difference. Supply and demand, not apples vs oranges.
