Manchester City and bit high "sponsorship deals" been in court for while but only made public now. We'll see if FA would punish them bit, UEFA Mafia for sure don't do anything (oh sorry, they already got £10 million fine instead of original 2 years ban from CL).

Didn't they have some dodgy TV deal in China as well? I'm sure I remember reading about some deal where the media company paying for it was either owned or part owned by The city group / Abu Dhabi group

They say we going to face a period of inflation, it seems to have hit football already, Chelsea have just paid 97m for lukaku, are they mad, he looked immobile and overweight in the euros.

Probably why he only scored 4 times and not 5 to be co-topscorer. Sad times.

4 goals...I must have missed them, I think I saw belgium play italy and I don't think he did much in that game :confused: though after that final it all became a bit of a blur.

Having seen him play for everton and then man utd for several years, many of his goals were very similar and so were many of the misses :p

As a belgique fan what price does that make de bruyne?

Well, he has his style of play... It's not like he can change his physique that much, the way he plays in the national team gives alot of freedom to the attacking midfielders and upcoming wingers. And on top of that he gets his goals too.

I'd say De Bruyne wouldn't be sold for under 150 million by City? No clue really if there's even a price where they would start negotiations.

He's not a bad player, occupies the defenders and gets a fair number of goals he makes for himself, but something has gone bonkers with transfer fees, I was a bit surprised my team liverpool paid 40m for jota the year before, good player but at some point the money is getting silly, once you add the wages etc..

He tends to do very well against the weaker teams where he’s allowed more time and can bully the defence more. Against top sides he seems to go missing. He had a bad record for us (United) against top 6 sides. I’m not convinced he can cut it against top quality defences (hence he seems to go invisible in those games).

He’ll score plenty of goals this season…maybe even golden boot winner, but I’d wager the vast majority of his goals will come against bottom half teams.

What do you think of the transfer fees, sustainable at this level or a mad blip?

I think it's more to do with the teams he was playing against versus where he was at the time ... At MUFC what you're saying is true, however at Everton he scored against most of the "big teams"
