    I thought Atletico had his signature? And then Porto also showed interest>? As for Tolisso…best wait for player or old man Aulas to confirm. I would very much like to believe that we have an agreement in place for 30m.

      30 million would be a steal, the kid is a year or two away from being world class. At 22 he is one of the best midfielders in France as it is, if even we can pull this off for under 30 million… geez!
