    Mascherano - I think we don't have anything better and we do need a defensive minded midfield so I wouldn't call it a bad transfer although we do need some stability at the back so should we sign Summer?! after all he has CL title in his resume (97)

    I woudnt be too happy about it tbh, especially when i think about our mercatto strategies so far the only thing that comes to mind is that a free buy like Mascherano would result most probably in no other quality reinforcements in midfield...
    Barcelona and Juventus are different clubs with opposite philosophies. ofcourse we wont leave Mascherano exposed like they did vs us

    I wont disagree with you on that matter because is true, even tho i still believe we already have enough defensive minded CM's in the team... what really worries me is the last part of what i talked about in my previous post which is not that i don't rate Mascherano, is just i dont believe at his age he still is what is needed to reinforce this squad.

    This part...

    We’re missing a David Silva type player. Oh yeah. And a right back.

    Dude, you told us that you want a David Silva type player and Pjanic IS the David Silva type player.

    Not exactly, David Silva is more involved in the final third. Pjanic plays more as the registra. Think Xavi vs Iniesta.

    Well, in Roma he played more aggresive though.

    well we were gonna sign Emre Can most likely, now that that seems to be off, we could simply be looking at a different cheap DM, which Mascherano is. if Emre Can was to be our only midfield reinforcement, then id rather have Mascherano for 2 years anyway, and then bring in Mandragora after that. id be happy if we keep everyone this summer, bring in Caldara, Spinazzola, maybe De Vrij, sign Mascherano and spend on a great RB finally.

    another thing, look how Heynckes rejuvenated Martinez by moving him back to DM (@bayernfan can confirm), Mascherano paired with Pjanic in a team like ours will bring the best out of him again

    I'm a HUGE Mascherano fan, I wanted him reunited with his BFF Tevez, even after Tevez left I wanted him here still, when he left Liverpool I was begging for him. But is too late, we can't have another Anelka case.

    Mascherano's role heavily relies on his athletic capabilites, he just doesn't have it anymore. Sure his reading of the game might still be excellent but he just won't be able to keep up.

    Maybe random here but I hope we don't get Can no matter how favorable the terms. I so sick and tired of reading article after article about this guy coming to Juve. If he's reading any of it, no doubt he'll demand top wages and honestly I don't see him being that must have missing piece to future Juve success.
