We won the league, waiting for CL. We don't know what kind of transfer activities there would be so if you were in charge, with the pandemic and uncertainty coming up, what would your budget Mercato look like.

I want to have fun with this so how about you post your transfers moves with logic and reasons. Like signing Mbappe or Haaland is not happening.

So what would YOU do?

ps: this is aka how could you creatively get rid of Bale transfer thread rofl

I don't remember the last time it was this difficult to predict our transfers. It's a really odd year for the transfer market, and I don't know when that's going to change. As boring as it may sound, I suspect we won't make any incoming transfers, at all. If we do, it will likely be a more low-profile target than what we're traditionally known for pursuing, and I really have no clue who that would be.

Bale seems content with wasting his career on the bench, in favor of seeing out his contract with us. That's an issue we'll just have to live with. I'm a fan of RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano, but I don't think we're in the market for a new CB, and it's not a priority position at the moment. That said, I won't be surprised if we chase his signature in the future, when his price tag has been quadrupled. It's hard not to like a defender who's got great physical attributes, and intelligence to boot.

What would I do, though? That depends entirely on what our current transfer budget is, and I have no idea what it looks like. Chelsea actually seems like the most ambitious club in the transfer market right now, which is almost like a throwback to the glory days of Abramovic and the early days of oil money in football.

I'd go for Bernardo Silva who seems to have fallen out of favor at City.

MTO, the budget is zero. They may use some of sale proceeds (of Canteras not capable to make first team and maybe James, Mariano, Jovic for backups to Casemiro and if both current backups to Benz perhaps a backup striker, but that’s it.

I think a better question will be Who do they go after the following summer. either Mbappe and / or Haaland. There are promises amongst current squad plus loanees for most other positions

Really? I don't follow city much these days but I recall he reached he pretty elite level at some point. With Sané leaving there is no way Pep would let Silva leave as well

I think we'll only sign a backup DM and RB this summer/fall.

With Areola gone, Lunin can come back as 2nd choice GK.

Regarding RB, there is Odri but i think he'll be sold seeing as Zidane was content with letting him go this season with no RB cover.

Not sure who would be a good, realistic backup RB. Zidane might try to mold Lucas into a RB, which i'm not too optimistic about.

Jesus Navas could be an option, he is 34 but has been one of the best RB's in la liga this season and has only a year left on his contract.

It doesn't seem like Camavinga wants to leave with Rennes getting CL so i'd go for Roca as Casemiro backup. We've been linked with him before and with Espanyol relegated, he will go for a reasonable price. Plus he young enough to have resell value if we go for Camavinga or someone else in that talent bracket in the future.

Loan out Kubo, Brahim and Reinier, sell James, Lucas, Mariano and Ceballos. Also sell Reguilon and Oscar with buyback or retain 50%.  

Slowly integrate Miguel Gutiérrez as backup LB as i think Marcelo will stay for another season.

I can't see any way to get rid of Bale this summer, especially after his agents comments recently.

@lets say your budget is 50 millions + sales. The goal being not to spend much.

One of the reasons o thought this would be fun is because the current market is in complete opposition to our current transfer policy. We typically sign very young players for huge sums like Jovic or we sign superstars.

I feel like this transfer market, if you have to make signings, you have to go for those guys aged between 23-26 that you can sign around 30 millions and that will perform at a good enough level to help the team. This is something we have refused to do in recent years. Think Liverpool signing Salah or that level of players, who can then become world class despite not having a lot of hype

I don’t see where you get the 50M budget. It’s totally contrary to everything that has been stated numerous times. I will agree with your plus sales to which they are already +45M.

Another consideration is they are still paying for stadium renovations and paying back that loc. stadium sponsorship won’t be done until next year. Bottom line there may be room for 1 or possibly 2 Of your 30M purchases.

But then you have to look at current roster and where might there be an opening. There is an over abundance of forwards even with the possible sales. There is backup to Casemiro available but other than that the midfield is full plus Odegaard will return in a year. On defense there is a need for backup RB and I don’t think Odriozola comes back, think he will be sold. No way Lucas or Nacho leave now and likelihood is they backup RB.

And re Lunin coming back, he still needs to play. He couldn’t catch on with two lowly 1st division teams and although he did well with Oviedo since January it was for a bottom team in segunda. He’ll likely get another shot with a low level 1st division team and Areola remaining.

So Nick, this entire thread is about possibly acquiring one Backup player. Next summer besides the budget and need for a Mbappe is the fact that 5 of the aging veterans have contracts expiring.

Stop trying to guess the future, you are gonna drive yourself crazy lol

@zees didn't Zidane say he wantes Odri to stay?

Unless they sign someone, he has to come back. I don't think Bayern are interested in buying him either.

Regui has to come back, for sure. Marcelo is done.

Modric will probably stay for another year. Before Odegaard comes in.

@Nick, seeing your fantasy thread without activity, I thought I would provide a link to someone else who has been saying same as me re market activity this summer.

https://www.marca.com/en/football/real-madrid/2020/08/01/5f255a1c46163fd0548b45ab.html

@Cyborg, I think Odriozola will be sold (if there are any buyers and Reguilon will either be on another loan or sold (if Zidane doesn’t value him). Marcelo is definitely staying another year as is Modric.
