    Laporte, Jesus, Cancelo and £100million would be acceptable. Although I’m guessing those 3 are all on decent money so not sure how that would leave the wage budget looking?

    What about the home grown aspect? Lose 1 and bring in 3 not? Wages a huge issue too.

    Not sure what those three would want in wages but Kane was on £200k a week and Spurs were paying Bale 300k a week weren’t they?

    Bale was on his full whack but we paid him about as much as we paid Kane (c.220k IIRC), and Madrid covered the rest so the poor lamb didn’t go out of pocket.

    So by selling Kane and Bale’s loan ending, the club have 450k roughly a week. That would more than cover the wages of Jesus, Laporte and Cancelo :1980_boogie_down:

    Jesus can't hold down anything but a bench spot at City after what, 4 years? Flatters to deceive and always looks like he's pissed off.
    The last thing we need is an under acheiving sulker.

    Can't see City letting Sterling go either way for less than £70m. English 'premium' and all that.. .

    I Can't help but think we are missing a trick. Souamare and Daka both going to Leicester look like the sort of players we should be signing. We must be more appealing than Leicester, both would have more chance of getting in our first team. Daka especially if Kane goes. I know we don't have a manager but surely our DOF should be looking at young players with the quality to develop.

    Daka must be an easy sell for Leicester though, as he'll replace Vardy over the next season or so.
    They're very similar stylistically, from what I've seen of them, though I'm not sure he dives as well.

    But hes going to be competing with Iheanacho and Edouard, I'm not sure he will get much game time if he plays out wide. Under barely played last season.

    I don't think that they'll buy Edouard and Daka. It'll be one or the other.
    They do play two up front quite a lot, though.

    Spurs should be an even easier sell as if he will have zero competition with Kane sold and Vinicius loan ending

    If someone like Daka ends up being our only striker then I will join the Levy out group.

    That wouldn’t be Levy’s fault though would it? If Paratici and the new head coach thought Daka was enough then surely we’d have to trust their judgement?

    Sugga Daddy FC players are 'wage poisoned' .

    I suspect the players themselves know that, but if their
    medals + pension desires are sated then they don't
    care so much (so can easily go to "lesser" clubs if they so wish) ..

    IF Kane were to go, Daka would be someone a lot of Spurs fans would probably like to see at the club, an older Prem experienced backup would also be ideal but Daka is one of the hottest striking prospects in football right now and with Parrott and Scarlett both in the ranks we’d (in theory) have a solid group of strikers for the foreseeable future.

    Great signing for Leicester if they do finalise it.

    Not just the sugar daddy clubs. Pretty much every player at a big club is on huge money now.

    Hardest sell to their squad players (to take what would
    be the most extreme drop in wages) .

    We’ve found it hard enough to move squad players on and I suspect the likes of Sissoko and Winks are earning less than City’s squad players. Of course they’re likely better but it’s all relative because richer clubs would look to move for their filler players than ours.
