If we're only looking at this last summer window and the season we're playing right now, then I fail to see why anyone is even mentioning Keita at all.

We haven't paid for him yet and don't know whether he'll even come next summer with us seemingly dropping out of top 4 and maybe even an EL place.

Because the club would look extremely, extremely, extremely bad if it didn't go through after announcing it so it must be water tight and therefore will go through.

I'm more concerned Keita won't want to join us if we don't sort the defence out and finish Top 4, it will be an interesting contract that they have agreed/signed, if we don't get top 4 and a RM/PSG/Barca come in for him, there must be clauses.

You never know but you'd have to think that it'd be water tight for us to announce it.

But that's exactly my point. We will indeed look stupid if it happens.

The intentions from our club to sign him might be good, but the effect of us going into meltdown this season (if that should happen) might not have been accounted for in the contract with Keita.

Again: The failure of not signing players essential for use this season can't be rectified by signing (or looking to sign) players in the future. We haven't even paid for him, so for me it's just as saying we might sign Bale, Ronaldo and Messi in the next 3 upcoming summer transfer windows.

I said at the time that it's a bit of a let down as we need players for now and said the same for if we have a shocker. None of us know or will ever know the ins and outs of the deal but I have to think it's water tight or why announce it? We'd be stupid not to make it binding but that's not to say he won't go off the idea.

Just think, had we bought a decent defender or two we might not be worrying about having a shocker. As it is, the defence is having a shocker every week yet there's not five CB's in the world better than we have.

Maybe to try and deflect our failure of signing either of Keita and VvD last summer, without even pay any money (avoiding the Torres/Carroll f*ckup)?
