What do you think of him?
Seems like a very direct attacking midfielder who excels in scoring and escaping pressure, but not exactly a guy to control the tempo or being great playing deep.
Manu are also in in him btw, Spain is having a great generation coming up in midfield
Wanted to be a bit hipster and say that despite the age difference I prefer Sancet.
Ya know though, I was thinking just where exactly would he fit in at a top club. As you say, very vertical and offensive minded for a midfielder.
But if he does continue this trajectory then would be great for Barcelona in that Gavi psuedo midfielder-forward role. Way better offensive output and the ability to know where and how to arrive in the final third.
That's not me giving up on Gavi, just a better profile for having 4 mids on the field.
Incredible physical profile and final touch for his age though. For a 40m BO clause you don't need to think twice given the currently inflated market. But ideally you wait another season to see if he levels off to a Raul Garcia or Fabien Ruiz type who I recall also had these hot starts.
Man U already have Bruno so don't really need him, but the PL clubs are all about sporting the opportunity and thinking later, way too much rights income and an internally inflated market to worry if a player like this flops.
