Report Help With Deal(s) Thread... in Help with Deals? Posted November 30, 2014 Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... 1) Carvajal - arguably the best RB prospect in the world even with limited time atm at Real. This alone makes him number 1 as he's such a niche option. He will rise a lot in future even if it won't happen immediately. Arbeloa and Pepe aren't getting any younger so his options will increase.2) Bernat - At Bayern he's getting good game time which was the only real concern. Great platform to rise further in future. Second only because young natural RBs (EDITED: like Carvajal) are so rare. Alaba's versatility hasn't help held him back only his form can provide any barriers to a top ratings. 3) Rodriguez - Needs a move to have the potential ceiling of the other two but is no less talented. Still another top young LB and if he gets the move he would move into the band with the other 2. 4) Laporte - regular for Bilba but like Rodriguez will struggle to go much beyond 90 at such a club. Really highly regarded by club and country and again' date=' with the move his rating potential would sky-rocket. Fourth due to the added number of unknowns. 5) Ginter - rotation at Dortmund. Is not settled into one position (CB or DM) I feel his future will depend on either Hummels or Subotic moving on which is not guaranteed. Doubt he will be a long-term DM as he's a bit more one-dimensional than the likes of Gundogan and other types we see there in modern football. 6) Zouma - no prospect of being a starter at Chelsea any time soon with the form of Cahil and Terry. Needs to hope in the time it takes for either of these two to lose their place Chelsea won't just go out and buy a replacement. Tough ask at such a club to become the long-term successor. Lot of doubts atm. City look a lot more solid when Kolarov is in the team. Clichy/Mangala partnership on the left side of defence is a real weakness at times this season. I doubt whether Clichy will drop but he really deserves to. Kolarov doesn't play enough to be considered a riser. So on SM alone I'd go Clichy as even if he did drop he'd still be rated the same and this is worst case scenario and unlikely so probably worth the risk of going for Clichy; Kolarov offers little benefit unfortunately. I would go for Otamendi as he is in the best form as is his club (ignoring Barzagli and Juve due to considerable age and the fact he hasn't even played this season) He should rise. Gervinho is likely to rise earlier but I still think Aubameyang is the better, more dangerous and more consistent player. He's also younger. Dortmund's league form is misleading whilst Serie A is (rightly or wrongly) considered weaker which to a slight extent off-sets club comparison. In the long-run I'm sure Aubameyang will be the better buy I can see him getting to 92 in future; Gervinho, I'm less convinced. This is impossible to answer because position is vital to my advice. All things equal I would sell Lahm due to his considerable age but he's still one of the best defenders in the world so there's a lot of ifs and buts here... 1) Vidal - best box to box midfielder playing for a strong team in stronger league to Cavani IMO (I understand PSG do better in Champs League and Ligue is higher in coefficients) There's also more higher rated strikers than CMs so... 2) Cavani second due to the above, he's safe at 94 for now. 3) Sanchez due to age (being above Lahm) and the fact he's two rating points below the above makes him third choice. He might be looking at a rise at Arsenal in future due to good form but he has a long way to go be on the same leve as the above two on SM. 4) Lahm here purely due to age, retired from internationals, etc. I have a long-term approach but if you need defenders I'd dramatically change my opinion.[/quote'] Thank you very much for your reasons, I have any position requirements!
