So Haaland wants a £78m package over five years in order to move to the prem this summer according to sly sports.

With the obvious German / Klopp / Dortmund connection, could we dare to dream?

I know we're not that financially flush at the moment, but could we sell a bunch of players to raise funds for the purchase? I know who i would get rid of.

Agree0 Disagree0

That figure does not even include the ridiculous signing on and agent fee that Raiola would want. And there is the 100 million euros plus transfer fee to consider as well if we want him this summer.
I'd happily sell Mane and Bobby to fund a nice for Halaand, but it's never going to happen.
We need to freshen up the squad a little with 3 new players and Elliot and Minamino to come back after solid loan spells.
Cannot just go throwing all the money we raise on one player.

Haaland ain't coming cos we all know we cannot afford the whole pay package, financially. No point talking about it, IMO. It is wishful thinking at this point.

I think Haaland is a wonderful player and is going to be one of the best players itw over the next 10 years.
However, if we were to go out and sign a quality striker, I’d look at Lautaro Martinez at inter Milan. He’s doing fantastic things currently and while he’s also be on the expensive side he’s be the one I’d go for over Haaland.
That being said if we sign a forward in summer I suspect it’ll be somebody to be a back up, Raphina, Patson Daka, somebody that can push the other players but won’t consistently play.

CB - 1 if of: Konate, DCC, Botman, White.
CM - 1/ 2 of: Bissouma, Zakaria, Sanches, Barella, De Paul
Forward - 1 of: Daka, Watkins, Raphina. (In a fifa world I’d have Martinez over any of them) .

Definitely need 3 solid signings to freshen things up.

And the fact we won't have champions league football next season.

22 Feb 2021 10:55:47
Personally think we will get DCC, Bissouma and one of Raphinha/ Neto.
Money can hopefully be raised by selling Shaq, Origi, Wilson, Grujic, Awoniyi, Ojo, Millar, Karius, Woodburn etc.
If one of the current front 3 goes, would not mind Patson Daka or Balogun at all.

Just going for squad fill out is getting us in this mess, Haaland is a no brainer for me, Gini is off, sell Bobby, Origi, Shaq, Matip, Wilson etc, get there large wage off the book and a bit of transfer money, we have players out on loan who can replace (Elliot, Mini, Grujic) and players around the squad already so no need to buy squad players for the sake of it. We could get Haaland and not break the bank imo.

It's funny isn't it? Apart from the fact that we were not able to replace Lovren with an injury-resistant CB, we were all pretty happy with the summer business of Tsimikas, Thiago and Jota.

I do agree that we need to make a few more invasive tweaks in the summer.

My picks would be Kounde, Botman (yes two CBs), Bissouma, Raphinha, Haaland. Presumably we'd need to sell at least one big name to fund Haaland.

22 Feb 2021 12:24:06
FlyPelican, I think Kounde would be too small to be an effective premier league centre back and would be dominated by anyone in the air, given the rather agricultural approach from most of the teams.

22 Feb 2021 12:52:28
I thought that too but he's aerial stats suggest otherwise. You're right that he is small. But he's super tenacious. Guaranteed fan favourite. And alongside a Botman or VVD he'd be fine.

22 Feb 2021 14:38:03
Is still not fancy him against the aerial bombardment you get from most of the teams in the premier league. Winning a few headers in Spain where they tend to keep the ball on the deck and don’t really play long ball stuff is one thing, but put him in against the likes of West Brom, Burnley, Sheff United or whatever and he’ll be made mincemeat of.

I'd sign Haaland's dad just to wind up Roy Keane.
