Okay, that's insane...


I've heard of Neymar...

Let's just say that the 4 players up top could be the best attacking crew in world football as we speak.

Veratti in the middle is a borderline world class player too.

That's a CL chip worthy attack...but tbh Neymar's price is fair...especially when you ****ing pay 50 million for Nemanja ****ing Matic...what were you thinking Jose...I'd rather use Fellaini for one more year and use the cash to buy someone young...btw Arsenal had a good offseason imo, don't be that bearish on next season Arsenal fans

Yeah, this I didn't get, especially coming from a guy who is complaining about how the prices are very inflated.

I think PSG gets a return of their investment in three years or so. They will sell a LOT of things Neymar touches.

Yeah they will, also imo PSG is a real contender for the treble with that offense. Btw what's your prediction for the PL next year?

PL? I don't know. It looks as wide open as it could be. The big 4 teams brought out some cash and added great quality players. Everton has been busy, so is West Ham. Even Bournemouth looks well improved.

I think the Spurs drop out of the top 4 though, and I'm not just saying it as an Arsenal fan, but their transfer window has been disappointing. They haven't brought anyone, and they lost Kyle Walker. A lot of clubs got better.

United looks really good, especially if they resign Zlat. Don't you think Tottenham continues to improve though?

I do. I think Chelsea falls out tbh, their players tend to fall complacent and they were starting to look vulnerable near the end of the season, United's 2-0 win looked like a 6-0 drubbing tbh. Also United are signing King Zlatan back. I think the top 3 would be 3 of United-City-Arsenal-Spurs while Liverpool and Chelsea fall off and will fight with Everton for the 5-6-7 slots. As a United fan I'm very optimistic.

The agent fees make it even crazier... 38m euros

The last 3 4 years the the transfer fees have become completely unreasonable

Considering this is a forum about NBA the wage shouldn't be a surprise.... Mozgov makes 300k per week!

He clearly wanted out from under Messi's shadow. PSG wanted to make a splash and they got their guy. Still don't think they win Champion's league.

It's just an insane amount of money they threw there. Jesus. I think they get it back int two - three years from all the money Neymar is going to bring, but still.

Now, if they also get Alexis Sanchez, they're going to be insane. IDK if they are still in it on the Alexis stuff, but a Neymar, Alexis, Cavani attack with Veratti behind? That is going to be nuts. Still no defence, but man...

From what I've read, Alexis prefers Man City. Maybe Neymar changes that?

I think PSG have obviously improved, but they have other holes they need to address. They may develop the best attack in the world, but you still have to stop the other team from scoring.

We (Arsenal) are not selling Alexis to Man City, or any PL club, per Wenger. But this has not stopped us from selling our players to PL clubs before, so we'll see.

I do hope that PSG pounces on Alexis and we just cash in. I understand not selling him to a PL opponent, but if a Ligue 1 club wants him, sell right away.

That defence is really shady. Two young players in Aurier and Kurzawa on the full backs. They just signed Dani Alves, what does he have left? What does Thiago Silva have left? Marquinhos? Meh. Matuidi and Krychowiak can hold that midfield, I think that's solid. The back line is very shady, though

But check out their attack...

Lucas Moura
Julian Draxler
Angel Di Maria
Edinson Cavani
Marco Veratti
Hatem Ben Afra

And now you add Neymar to that mix... That's ridiculous...

PSG now cannot afford Alexis after capturing Neymar.  Bayern and Chelsea seem to have dropped out long ago, which means that Wenger can sell him now to City for roughly 50 million, or watch him walk at season's end for nothing.  The obvious play is to swallow hard and cut the deal with City, but Arsenal supporters are so fed up with the pervasive lack of ambition by management that they truly might riot if that transaction occurred. 

Seems to me that the best approach is to take the money for Alexis and then immediately spend it on one or two players (a defender or two would be a great idea) who would measuably improve the squad.  By the way, Lacazette should eventually be excellent up front - finally a worthy #1 striker for this club.

They didn't have a choice... Neymar had a buy out clause

 In USD the transfer fee was a cool 262 million. The previous high was 47 million I think. Grand total of 530 million USD. It's good to be King I suppose.

Last summer MU  payed for Pogba around 120m USD... It has been too long since 47m USD was considered a record fee.. 16 years ago juventus got 60m USD for Zidane
