Wow that's quite a get for BVB.
Been reading around a bit since Haaland to ManU seemed in the bag. Many ManU outlets are suggesting that Raiola tied Haaland’s transfer to Old Trafford to Pogba being allowed to leave. That doesn’t quite sound like Raiola, who is well known for doing whatever it takes to get each client what & where he wants. I think it is more likely that all parties understand that Haaland’s stay in Dortmund could be short, like Dembele short, if the right clubs with the right offers come along.

From a footballing perspective, Haaland gets to slot into a team that is famous for developing young players very well and very quickly. He also gets stay in the Champions League for at least about round.

Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if he spring boards quickly ie 6 to 18 months but it's amazing how often Dortmund makes huge profits on these deals.

An excellent contrast to the previous post. They would have had a ton of suitors for Weigl at double or triple that price when he burst onto the scene. Shows the wisdom of moving them on quickly, I suppose

Sounds like Palace are going to get Cenk Tosun and Kyle Walker-Peters on loan, while Zaha continues to push for a move. FYI, here are Palace’s injuries for this week (going on memory)

Christian Benteke (might come back)
Andros Townsend
Wilf Zaha
Scott Dann
Mamadou Sakho
Patrick van Aanholt
Joel Ward
Jairo Riedewald
Max Meyer
Jeffrey Schlupp
Maybe Gary Cahill
Luka Milivojevic is not injured but suspended

so some help soon would be appreciated.

A few different reports have United in discussions with Bruno Fernandes again. Not sure how he's got on this season, @Vinho Tinto ?

Rio also just tweeted BRUNOOOOOOOOO
I don't think he's worth the hype at all. I believe he is exactly what he is - an elite player for the Portuguese league.

But I've been wrong before, and am biased, but he's stunk every time he's played for Portugal.
