Laporte being injured is an issue. He will obviously need to come out and I’m also worried about Kane’s return. Both are fairly big problems. I will use my remaining transfers (2 for the month) to address this. The striker to come out will be Aubameyang, however I’m not sure I’ll make this move just yet. For now I’m just looking to be in a position where I’ve got the funds to make this move. As a result my changes are likely to be:
Laporte out, Rudiger in
Sane out, Mane in
My reasoning being – Sane to Mane creates a little more budget for the Kane upgrade. Also I don’t think there’s much between the two in terms of point scoring capability but Mane gets a lot more game time. Laporte to Rudiger might seem like a strange one, however Chelsea have a good run of fixtures. The only regular defender, from Chelsea, I could afford is Rudiger. If I could pick any I’d have gone for Azpilicueta but it’s out of the question. This leaves 2.6m in the bank, with the price difference between Aubameyang and Kane being 2.3m this leaves a little bit of room for price changes.
With regards to Kane himself – Spurs only have 4 games during March. As a result I’m trying to hold out as long as possible when it comes to bringing him back in. The player I’m comparing him to is Aubameyang. If we compare their game week Spurs and Arsenal face each other at the weekend, which is an equally difficult game for both players. We then compare Spurs travelling to Dortmund and Arsenal travelling to Rennes. I’d massively favour Arsenal’s fixture in this circumstance. If we then look at the week after as well, Spurs only have one game and Arsenal have two. For me it just doesn’t quite feel like the right time to put Kane back in – making sure I’ve got the funds to do it is more essential at the moment.
