The bigger question is will Real? Not if they take a look at this thread. I do not want Dele to leave but could live with this proposal but how often do swap deals actually happen. Not very often , too many things to be agreed. Cannot see Real agreeing to take Dele if they did not want Eriksen this time last year.Is Dele going to accept this?
I really think this alleged loan to RM would do him the world of good.
12 months in a shark tank; he'll either thrive (leaving the club with a choice to make) or he'll come back eager to rebuild what he once had here.
You think he's trouble at this point?
.....Take a shit fee rather than find a way to rehab him (or his value)?
People's opinions tend to go up or down on players based on team performances as opposed to individuals themselves.
I think we could get a good fee for Dele.
Bit of a different slant than "He just needs to go, regardless."....?
Suggests you categorically want rid asap.
I wont have a problem if he stays - we need bodies, he's HG etc and the manager seems to rate him.
But if teams WERE interested, I think we'd be stupid to reject an approach. Problem is,
Watching the Amazon show, it seems like José is trying to be Dele’s best mate. Always there with an arm round the shoulder and even his digs about being lazy seemed to have a bit of fun around them. Let’s hope this works and gets Dele back on form.
I do have a feeling that Dele would react a lot better to a fucking swift boot in the stones though.
And whilst I think he still has it in him to be a wonderful player again, I’m struggling to see where he fits into a side playing three up front.
Poch bred a bad mentality among his favorites. Dele was always undroppable and after a year or two of that you stop working as hard as you should.I feel like Mourinho started out that way, and got a good reaction from Dele, but then he returned to his poor form. I think Mou will take a tougher line with him now. Does he want to be a top player or not? Top players do not get hooked at HT and accused of being lazy. He needs to shape up. We have indulged him for too long, he needs some real talk now. He's still very young and can easily get his career trajectory back on track if he works harder.
It was very alarming to me that Dele apparently had a big reputation within the club for being a lazy trainer, Poch should never have allowed things to reach that point.
