Sounds like Koscielny refused to go on Arsenals pre season tour, cracking way for the club captain to behave. Thought he was one of the better ones :( Let him rot in the reserves
What was the reason though? Surely he's not trying to force a move at his age?

Apparently he's had offers from Ligue 1 and Arsenal won't let him leave. He's been trying to mutually terminate his contract/buy himself out but the club won't let him.

Looking to be released from his contract. Think he has ideas about playing in France
Well that's a bit ridiculous. Was happy with his contract while he was recently injured for a year no doubt. With their supposed money issues they're hardly just going to release a centre back and have to buy another player are they?? What a plum.

And so it begins between Barca and Atletico. Every man and his dog knows Griezmann had agreed to sign before the first of July but can Atletico make it stick.

Looks like Delph is on his way to Everton. Good deal for both clubs me finks. £23 million for City in the last 24 hours.

Re Greizman, am sure he agreed to go before July 1st, but Barca would of been as thick as two short planks if they had signed him before then and paid another X million.

£8m for Delph, if it goes through, looks like a very smart bit of business. Tashy, what do you see as his best role based on his time at City?
In all honesty re position I don't know, he was one of those players who Pep liked that could play in several positions. Left back, holding midfielder, normal midfielder, box to box no problem and he scored some very good goals. I think it all depends on what Silva wants to do with him. But £8 million for and England international who is 28 yr old. That's a very good deal. He was in his last year of his contract. Good deal on all three side LT me finks 👍

Is someone leaving ? Seems a strange signing when the team is crying out for a goalscorer. He has certainly managed to get a good living from limited ability

PSG are sniffing around Gueye again. It is a great move for him so if PSG are serious then he will go in the summer. Delph is probably being lined up to replace him. If Gueye stays then Delph is a solid addition to the midfield still.

£8m for Delph isn't going to stop us buying a goalscorer. The summer budget is not that small 😄
