The F365 Transfer Blog - Thursday July 31

    Reports state that they are not sure whether Juventus gave permission for these medical tests on Vidal.... haha No Sh!t Sherlock - Its all nonesense I bet... More-so that he chilean newspaper wants the sale more than anyone else
    7/31/2014 8:53:10 AM
    Apparantly Vidal had a 3rd party medical upon return from holiday which utd could use to progress the transfer
    7/31/2014 8:53:25 AM
    That headline in the metro makes it sound like Vidal had to write an actual examination ahead of his transfer
    7/31/2014 8:53:28 AM
    Why are the Chileans so keen for this Vidal move to go through? He's not exactly at some two-bit, backwater club - Juve are a huge team.
    7/31/2014 8:56:40 AM
    Here's what Javier Hernandez has said about possible interest from Inter Milan: "I know of interest from Inter. I'm happy for this reason. There are many clubs at the moment that want me, but at the moment I am a Manchester United player. It isn't respectful talking about other teams. I don't know my future, we will see after USA tournament."
    7/31/2014 8:58:14 AM
    He really should go.
    7/31/2014 8:58:22 AM
    We all know the Vidal stuff is rubbish. The main reason being it is taking so long and it's only ever been the papers saying anything. LVG is clearly not a man who messes about, if he wanted him, it would of been sorted out a long time ago one way or the other.

    I'm suing El Mercurio for harassment. They've got my hopes up too many times and its taking a toll on my mental wellbeing
    7/31/2014 8:58:48 AM
    Rule 1 of the transfer window Rustin: remain calm.
    7/31/2014 9:00:49 AM
    As a Utd Fan I would hate to see Hernandez go - but as a football supporter he should move on as he deserves first team football all the time.
    7/31/2014 9:00:58 AM
    I would love Spurs to stick in a cheeky bid for Chicharito.
    7/31/2014 9:00:59 AM

    Tottenham have lodged a bid for Sporting Lisbon's English defender Eric Dier. #thfc #spurs

    Watched the Liverpool City game last night and I have to say I hope Rodgers gives Coates a chance this season. He 's looked pretty good in last couple of games. Still young so could still forge a good partnership with either Lovren / Sakho. Agger and Skrtel to leave and have a fresh back 4 with Flannagan and Moreno (if he eventually signs!).... Johnson looks worse and worse
    7/31/2014 9:04:00 AM
    Looks like Coates could be staying at Liverpool this season and possibly evening playing. Heres BR:

    "Every player has an opportunity," said the Northern Irishman. "Seba was out for a lot of last season. He's done well in pre-season, he has been very composed on the ball and he passes it well. He has done well."

    Arturo Vidal: Has made at least 60 more tackles (459) than any other player in Serie A in the last 3 seasons #juve

    7/31/2014 9:04:29 AM
    Sad to see Chica go but its the right move for him, to Atletico, with perhaps Miranda coming in the other direction. These moves never happen but we can dream
    7/31/2014 9:05:24 AM
    Stop it F365! You're only making it harder to prepare ourselves for the day LVG says we were never interested in Vidal anyway
    7/31/2014 9:06:35 AM
    Spurs seem to have more brains involved in their transfer business this summer. Going to be an awfully big squad at this rate though.
    7/31/2014 9:06:48 AM
    is Dier any good or is he a novelty of an English player playing abroad?
    7/31/2014 9:06:56 AM
    I presume we won't sign Dier and Lascelles. Which one is better though?
    7/31/2014 9:12:57 AM
    If LVG is gonna stick with playing 2 up top is it not best to have 4 quality players to pick from? Hernandez could stay...
    7/31/2014 9:15:56 AM
    LVG: 'I always wanted to buy Vidal when he was at Bayer Leverkusen but he went to Juventus.'

    'I like a lot of Chile players and they always play an attacking style.'
    7/31/2014 9:16:01 AM
    So Romelu Lukaku is the fifth most expensive signing in the Premier League this summer. But could he be the best value? Still think Everton need another striker - they basically have last season's squad with added games.
    7/31/2014 9:17:16 AM
    Tom Lees completes move to Sheffield Wednesday. Signs a three-year deal - Leeds say they have received an undisclosed fee. Remember when people thought he was any good?
    7/31/2014 9:19:51 AM
    The claim from Spain (AS) is that Bayern Munich are still keen on a move for Angel Di Maria but Paris Saint-Germain appear to be leading the race.
    7/31/2014 9:28:59 AM
    In other Frenchy news, L'Equipe say that Monaco are lining up a £52m offer for Shakhtar Donetsk duo Douglas Costa and Alex Teixeira.
    7/31/2014 9:29:35 AM
    is Douglas Costa really that good? I remember United were trying to sign him a few years ago... why he went to Shakhtar I don't know... must've been for money
    7/31/2014 9:34:45 AM
    Nah, you'll have a great time. We went to Amsterdam in March and it was brilliant.
    7/31/2014 2:40:43 PM
    Little humblebrag there from you Stangz about being two people's best man?
    7/31/2014 2:41:19 PM
    Yeah, that did cause me to hesitate.
    7/31/2014 2:41:32 PM
    Lovely museums in the 'dam.
    7/31/2014 2:41:37 PM
    We couldn't get tickets for Ajax so went to see Chelsea reserves play in Arnhem. Nice little city.
    7/31/2014 2:42:07 PM
    Hamburg was epic too. Just made me realise I'm not 21 anymore.
    7/31/2014 2:42:24 PM
    Going on my bros stag do next summer. Hes a green beret commando and all his mates are in the army, I work in I.T.
    7/31/2014 2:43:37 PM
    I don't remember ever going to Hamburg. I've been, though. There are photos
    7/31/2014 2:43:40 PM
    Sporting Fan on Reddit: "Thank you for the £4 million. That is alot of money for us, and because hes awful." Cheers fella
    7/31/2014 2:43:56 PM
    More like the maid of honour Stangerz, am I right guys? Guys?
    7/31/2014 2:44:05 PM
    Went to Roskilde music festival in Denmark last month. Made it 5 days before being hospitalised. Come on Storey, take one for the team
    7/31/2014 2:44:35 PM
    Not gunna lie boys had one tequila shot feeling dizzy, might go to bed.
    7/31/2014 2:53:06 PM
    Liverpool need to sign Blaise Matuidi as a holding midfielder, we could also do with Marcos Rojo at lb. We should be trying to buy Angel Di Maria as well having lost the race for Sanchez, Shaqiri (staying in Munich) and Griezmann. Finally a replacement for Suarez is needed, should be looking at Marco Reus and Kevin Volland or better.
    7/31/2014 2:53:24 PM
    Matuidi would be a cracking signing.
    7/31/2014 2:53:33 PM
    2 days in Dusseldorf on a stag last October, they've managed to squeeze 200 bars&clubs into one square mile of the city. The most regrettable playground ever.
    7/31/2014 2:53:45 PM
    you need to get to eastern europe on stag. i was in riga last year and was firing a pump action shotgun and assault rifle with a quite startling lack of safety. makes me wish i could be in slovakia tonight watching the tigers...
    7/31/2014 2:54:02 PM
    Are you a Hull fan?
    7/31/2014 2:54:17 PM
    Dier could be the new Holtby. Good looking, mostly English but with a touch of European sophistication. So much hope, but turns out to be pants.
    7/31/2014 2:54:33 PM
    Matuidi is immense.
    7/31/2014 2:54:54 PM
    Ian Rush and Wu-Tang the most unexpected picture of all time.
    7/31/2014 2:54:56 PM
    Juventus are chasing PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot. Could he be a replacement for Vidal????!!11?!??
    7/31/2014 2:56:01 PM
    7/31/2014 2:56:05 PM
    Don't do that, Stangz, don't get our hopes up with tabloid maths.
    7/31/2014 2:58:24 PM
    Re: Adrien Rabiot: Surely you mean he's a replacement for Arsenal bound Paul Pogba
    7/31/2014 2:59:19 PM
    Didn't Matuidi sign a new contract before the WC? He was going to be out of contract...
    7/31/2014 2:59:23 PM
    Don't wanna bust the pool bubble, but surely Volland is the only one on that list of 'targets' that is mildly realistic.
    7/31/2014 2:59:27 PM
    Sky Sources declare: Scheiderlin trains with Southampton. So much for him going on strike or will he only do that once the season starts.
    7/31/2014 3:02:58 PM
    I would love De Jong at Pool, Milan just aren't all that any more, surely we could tempt big Nige with some CL football, he is just so effective in that position.
    7/31/2014 3:03:02 PM
    Good shout.
    7/31/2014 3:03:06 PM
    Always wondered... Stanger as in banger, or Danger Stanger?
