I dont get why pep never goes after pacey mids. One weakness is pace in the middle for city hence the counter teams and pressing teams being better in the middle of the park. Go after bissouma, zakaria, llorente aouar. This guy is another rodri.— FUTMAZING (@UCH08824863) June 3, 2021
Get him, great tackler and defensive mid. Send Rodri the other way and then extend Ferna for a year. Problems solved in deep midfield ✅— skyzenz (@skyzenz) June 3, 2021
