Yea after the VVD fiasco during last summers window the club has gotten real tight lipped about negotiations and signings. Heck the Fabinho signing was out of the blue as well. I don't mind it all if they club keeps operating like this if it means more signings. I'd loved to have Shaqiri on the bench, and for games after big UCL matches, he'll be good depth and not very old (I just had to look that up cause I thought he was like 30, he's only 26). Looks like Roma aren't budging on there valuation of Allision (IMHO don't blame them) and we won't pay their asking price. Seems his future will be sorted after WC.
