Reports suggest Roberto Mancini has had enough of Dani Osvaldo and is looking to send him back to Southampton this month, with Sunderland looking to get him in.

Believable6 Unbelievable7

Wasn't in the Inter squad for their last game.

What a waste of space. Can't see Saints seeing a penny back on their investment - who in their right mind would sign him?

Perhaps someone should tell Brendon Rogers that Osvaldo is quite good in Football Manager.

I believe inter gave him a one game ban. That will be why he wasn't in the squad

Agree0 Disagree1

I'm pretty sure Koeman has come up against bigger and badder than Osvaldo. He'll know what to do with him. Bury him in the New Forest hopefully. Italian style. Seriously though, what was Pochettino thinking?

I think you might find it was Cortese who was responsible for the signing of Osvaldo and Ramirez.

Agree1 Disagree6

Osvaldo was 100% poch.

Osvaldo being reported to be on top of Genoas list with talks ongoing. So maybe we will finally cash in on him

Don't think we'll 'cash in' if he goes to Genoa as it'll be a loan move and one brokered by Inter. We are paying 60% of his salary and Inter will probably have to offer to carry on paying some of it to sweeten the deal for Genoa to take him.

Roma now linked with him. Mancini obviously wants rid.

Maybe if Osvaldo returned to us, as he probably will do, RK can sort him out and get him playing. I'm sure RK has what it takes. But then you still have the Fonte issue. But the way I see it. Pelle and Osvaldo are too similar, we need something different. Been saying it for ages. .Mitrovic of Anderlecht.

With Toby Alderweirled going off with a quad/thigh strain issue it is likely that RK will bring in another central defender (we needed one anyway) this transfer window - does this open up the door to Bruno Martins Indi? Or have Eds any other candidates that are likely to be purchased or loaned?

{Ed002's Note - Transfer policy will not have changed in the past hour and Southampton's interest in Bruno Martins Indi is well known.}

If Alderweireld isn't too bad (2-3 weeks, say), they might just recall Stephens from his loan at Swindon and try to make do until Yoshida returns.

It might mean if Toby is out for a couple of weeks a blessing in disguise to force our hand in signing Martins Indi. Toby might not stay so we need to be prepared and by the way I thought Gardos was fantastic when he came on, I was unsure about him before but he seems to be learning the Saints way of playing. Great manager Koeman of that there is no doubt, can we keep him ?

Agree10 Disagree2

Agreed - i never said transfer policies would change, i expressed that if we are one centre back down it is likely that we will look to load or purchase another as cover. We may have got one anyway - now there is more need/chance.

I have a feeling Morgan will still want to leave at the end of the season. As Gary Neville said yesterday, he would walk into any team in the Prem. We have a ready made replacement in Toby (if he stays) with Indi as the new centre back. Those two will certainly give us options as they are so versatile.

Agree6 Disagree8

Toby isn't a replacement for Shneiderlin??? If we get top 4 I doubt Morgan will want to leave anyway as he wants Champions League football

Agree4 Disagree5

Agree with St Sam, Alderweireld, whilst he's done well there, he's not a DM - isn't that how he picked up the hammy injury too?

Reckon it'll be tough but we could convince Morgan to give it another season if we finish top 4. Though if he's off I'd rather it be done sooner rather than later and not miss out on a top replacement

Agree0 Disagree1

If we do make CL football this season, spider might just stay one more season to get his dream, plus to see how we do in that. but I do know wages do come into it. And if this is the corner we about to turn and become regular top 4/6 finishers, then you never know. But most importantly, spider is just one player. We found him, we can find another.

Agree3 Disagree0

I've said it before and I'll say it again Spider could walk into any team not just in the premier league but in any league he is that good. Regardless of whether we get into champions league or not it would be almost impossible to keep him. Would be seriously surprised if he went Tottenham can see him getting a big offer this summer. He has been our best player for years mopping up at the back, making big tackles and converting defense into attack. He would be very difficult to replace. He is an complete all round midfielder and I for one would be gutted if/ when he goes. But for now I'll keep dreaming he will stay with us for years to come.

My dream scenario is make top four with arsenal missing out, then flog him to arsenal anyway so he still hasn't got cl football. Spider is class but as we have shown, any player in the team can be replaced, credit must go to the board and coaching staff, not just a couple of individuals
