Roberto Mancini is reported to have made Barcelona defender Gerard Pique his top transfer target for Manchester City, and is set to launch a staggering £90 million bid for the player.
Another STUPID RUMOR ! £90M You can Buy 3 World Class Defenders of the same level
agree plus Pique is one of the weakest points in Barca line up
what are you smoking, Pique is the "weakest point" lol, he is one of the world best defender out there
I know you'l get disagrees but you are 100 % right PIQUE must be considered a striker he plays in the opposition's half more than his he is a great defender but when you play a team like man city who depends on counter-attacks it will prove very costly (like what happened to a.cole against them) so your point is 100% correct
haha Im not smoking anythink lol he is only like 23 he can become great but he cant even be compared to the likes of Vidic or Lucio and remember he could not even get to the United reserve team
imo united were 2 dumb 2 sell him ;) Pique Is great but just like i said above he attack more than he can defend and against some teams that's a BIG MISTAKE
They didn't have a choice about selling him he forced his way out. He wasn't gonna sign a new contract and they didn't wanna lose money on him. It was a mutual agreement and he left on good terms. As for this I think the media are linking any player to City right now for silly money because hell they can. The truth is nobody knows who City need not even Mancini until at least January..
agree But when you are playing for a team which attacks with 7 or 8 players then somebody needs to be back covering Pique does not do that so Barca are constantly under threat like against Inter last year
LOL this is the funniest rumor ever just because MAN CITY spend big they do some stupid rumors and tbh i am starting to lose my respect to goal.com they're starting to make stupid rumors Pique is worth 25-30M max
agree with you completly if Inter bought Lucio for 8M then Pique is certainly not worth 90M Xavi and Messi are worth that much
Messi is worth like 120M (because of his contract) and Xavi 60M but personnally I would rather have sneijder in my team than Xavi because xavi isn't getting any younger..not as quick as before and doesn't have the goalscoring ability's of sneijder and lampard....but his vision of the game is PERFECT (so does sneijder) remember his assist against chelsea ?
Buyout clauses aren't made to show a players worth they are there to protect a player. They are usually double a players value to stop players from being bought by rich teams. Well that was there original goal. Saying that Messi is probably worth the same as C.Ronaldo went to R.Madrid for at the time. Though that was massively more than what he was worth.
I know what buyout clauses are :P but i am sure even a 200M Offer for messi...barca won't accept neither will messi
Of course I remember that imagine having Xavi Messi Sneijder and Iniesta on the same team
Dream team :D
