Lots of reports tonight saying that Keita will be joining on Sunday. Do any of the eds know if there is any truth in it?

{Ed002's Note - As I have explained RBL are sick of the sight of Nobby and I guess if Liverpool raise the base fee to something between €90m and €95m (before costs) then they would be happy to get him out of the door as soon as possible.}

a shocking transfer fee! That is basically close to twice his buy out clause for German clubs. Amazing negotiation skills for a player i think no other team on the planet would have gone over 60 m € for.

Wow that’s an incredible amount of money, not that I want to be talking money. Let’s face it this guy is not the finished article so we are buying a prospect albeit a good one but this one is getting out of hand should it happen now.

{Ed002's Note - If he joins on Sunday as everyone expects, remind me to figure out an accurate figure.}

I’d love to hear an accurate figure Ed002 or maybe I wouldnt. And this lad sounds like a problem waiting to happen too.

{Ed002's Note - When he signs on Sunday remind me.}

Robbie23, a problem waiting to happen? he's an excellent footballer who is unhappy at his club, he want's to be here, can you blame him?

I still don't think it’s Keita, or Lemar or Griezmann.
I think Macca's post today was "fake news" again to throw us off the scent.
A world class player? I don't have Griezmann in that bracket, I still think he's a gamble.

To be a world class player it has to be Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar, Dybala - that's the level. I don't know who it is, but whoever we’re targeting it seems very unrealistic. 🤝.

I'm with you 100% of that post Ron. He's an excellent player but not a player we need and I don't believe a word of it (AG that is) .

It’s Mbappe Ron geez, catch up will you?

So Dybala is WC? He can't even get in the Argentine national team. I'm not sure if Griezman is WC or not as I didn't watch him enough but he did it in La Liga, CL and in the EUROS. Dybala is just overrated.

Paying £20 million more for keita now seems ridiculous, i bet there's a quality midfielder out there in the region of £20 million or maybe a bit more than we can get now as well as keita in the summer! The club still has a long way to go to reaching the standards of the scouts and dealmakers at clubs like bayern, chelsea and dortmund. Why are we paying so much for players like van dijk and keita when their clubs would clearly be glad for us to take them off their hands!

Ron he said "top top player" not world class ;) world class is another level up haha.

Anonymous Woolback, what you worried about? it's not your money is it, no point ranting. Welcome to today, these prices are just the way it is and nothing will change that.

' i bet there's a quality midfielder out there in the region of £20 million ' are you joking? we might get Shelvey for that but not a quality player not for that price and not with today's market. If we pay extra for Keita so be it, he will be a huge addition to the squad, he's well worth paying extra for.

I don't even know why your bringing up VVD, did you not see him last game? I know it's only one game but please come on, he's brilliant and is what we've needed for ages. We finally spend money on top quality players yet some are never happy? please come off it and support the club for once.

Spooked reading what Ed002 has had to say this lad has issues, taunting teammates over money and cars etc. I get that he wants to be here and is unhappy but he is going about the wrong way. I’m not doubting his ability in the slightest but what happens when he gets fed with us.

Ed 002 do you expect him to sign on Sunday or are the fans getting ahead of themselves again?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any agreement for him to sign on Sunday.}
