**** hell he looks absolute levels better than Hourihane. 

Wouldn't be surprised if we sign another DM. Hourihane can't play there in the PL.

A buy back option doesn't exactly pertain to next summer lads. Unless Rodri is an absolute flop, he isn't getting a game with City anytime soon. And he wants to play that DM role.

Also this stands in the way of us developing a player that we own in that position.

Just out of interest, do we have one  at the moment?

People who wanted a new Jedi style brute at DCM will be disappointed as this guy is tiny.

I like mobile, intelligent DCM's so I'm all for it.

I think people who wanted that will be disappointed with Dean Smith in general, it's not the Dean Smith way to have a destroyer who is useless with the ball.

More likely they buy him back to sell him.

I don't know about anyone else, but I find it difficult to connect with any player who is not really ours.

 

I had no problem with Mings, El Ghazi, Tammy, or Snoddy. I think it depends on their effort levels.

So is this actually happening or is it next level trolls from the media???

Sky have reported it. John Percy too. Looks legit. Engels one is strange. Surely Chezzie is moving on.

We aren’t losing out if we wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to sign him.

Only an aston villa fan could find a negative with this signing

Don't like this buy back clause one bit, its essentially a loan.

Unless he's shite, they will buy him anyway to turn a profit.

Thought we had moved away from this short term thinking.

If it's the£45m buy back that's doing the rounds then it's a potential£30m profit. Not bad for a short term loan. 

That's 10 McGinns.

It's certainly come out of nowhere. Also, a fellow Brazilian to help Wesley settle in!

Never heard of him

A dm is needed and if signed by pep will obviously have the attributes that Smith likes. Brazilian so will help Wesley settle. Possible buy back and us making a quick profit on him. Seems a great transfer on paper

Reported as agreed on the BBC.

They don't do gossip generally - except on their gossip page.

Looking at some vids of him, he really doesn't play like a DMC, he actually seems to play more like an MC with attacking intent or also seemed to play a little like an inside forward at times.

Watched him playing against Ireland under21s and thought he was Brazil's best player
