Out: Salah (8.5m)
In: Sterling (7.3m)
With 0m in the bank this is a bit of a risky move. However we’ve been forced into using this transfer today or it will be lost. The risk is that Salah’s price is almost certain to rise tomorrow, if it rises by more than Sterling’s price rises we will instantly be in a position where we can’t bring Salah back in without making further changes.
The advantage of making this transfer is that City have two fixtures over the next game week, which should ensure Sterling gets some game time in at least one. Whereas if Salah doesn’t play against Everton (and he might not in the FA cup) then he won’t play all week.
The ultimate long term plan is to bring Salah back in as he’s been outstanding all season but I’m hoping to pinch a few points by going heavy on City players with their additional fixtures.
This will still leave us with three transfers going into January. I’ll then be looking at Lukaku tomorrow against Derby, it looks like he will be recovered from his injury but he may well be rested for the FA cup tie. If he is, I will be looking at Morata as our first transfer with the additional EFL cup semi games to come in January. What does put me off slightly is that I believe Chelsea will get knocked out of the Champions League, as a result I believe Lukaku is a better long term choice. Should we make this move we would have Morata and Sterling with two transfers left in the bank, in an ideal world I’d only want these two temporarily and with Walker and Keane also injury doubts this may leave us a little short in terms of transfers.
