Don't think we're desperate for an additional centre back. 

 

Thought the point of pursuing Stones was to have a long term successor to JT. 

 

Buying someone who is 29 doesn't add up to me. 

I think your last comment there may be why im not buying the rumour.  Be ironic though how I think Mourinho is the one who sold him when at Madrid

 

However, if we can somehow perhaps agree something for Witsel too, id be happy

we may as well play ivan at cb. we want a faster back line, so we go for a slow ass defender like garay - makes sense  :face_palm:  and why are we pinning so much hope on stones leaving everton? it seems a waste of time considering nothing is happening.

He had a great WC last year.

 

Yes, and during the WC Zenit signed him, which was very weird indeed, seeing as Bayern and Utd were being heavily linked with him and he could more or less pick his club. Obviously agents and third parties were involved and it was a lucrative deal, but it was the wrong move for him and I'm not sure how much he had to do with it.

 

Otamendi (his defensive partner for Argentina) is one and a half years younger than Garay, and moved from Portugal at the same time, but instead of Russia he went to Spain, was widely acknowledged as the best defender in Spain and now has his big move.

 

Well, Garay, as far as I know, was far more coveted than Otamendi while in Portugal and rated the better defender.

He had a good world cup but then so did Cuadrado.

He's pretty slow and won't improve any so I don't see the point in this at all.

We are as well brining in someone who can improve and learn form our CB's. We already have 3 experienced ones in Terry, Cahill and Ivan if needed.

Save the cash and go for better next summer or Jan.

If we needed someone experienced to come in to the first team then he would be a good signing but we don't. Zouma, JT, Cahill and Ivan is enough plus we have a few younger ones coming through.

I do see DKW point if this is maybe a move to see if Stones will take matters into his own hands with this news.

Well we currently have 3 centre backs in the squad for 2 spots, 4 if you count Ivanovic.

 

If we're going to bring in another CB, one that isn't young and seen as for the post-JT future, then to me it just says that Jose has no faith in Ivanovic to play that position.

Don't see the point in signing this guy at all. He's 28 so not exactly one for the future, and he's slow too. Seems to be one of those that had a lot of hype around him a few years back but clearly hasn't lived up to it seeing as he's in Russia.

 

If we don't get Stones then I'm happy to go with JT, Cahill, Zouma and Ivanovic as an emergency for this season and have another crack at Everton next summer.

 

We don't need a stopgap signing. What we need is a long term successor for JT to pair with Zouma.

He's not slow, not sure why people keep saying that. He's got average pace like most CB's. Slow is Naldo, Luisao, etc.

If Jose wants to go with the high line then Garay would be perfect, he was part of the well drilled Benfica defence that pushed up high and caught players offside on a regular basis. It was one of the best defences I've seen in recent times.
