Idrissa Gueye's form in recent months is likely to put him in high demand this summer
The Senegalese midfielder was the subject of a concerted effort by Paris St Germain to tempt him to League 1 in January but the Blues rebuffed their interest and retained Gueye for the remainder of the season.
Since then, the 29-year-old has been in arguably the best form of his time at Goodison Park and that has led not only to speculation that PSG will return with a fresh bid this summer but there are now reports that Manchester United could come in for him.
The Red Devils could offer him big wages and the prestige of playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world but they won't be in the Champions League next season and if Gueye is looking to make that step, it would preclude a move to Old Trafford.
"He is a big part of Everton's success," Cahill said on SkySports a few days ago. "He is a brilliant player and every team needs someone like him. It's just the way he goes about the park.
"Of course he is going to be in demand but Everton have to attract big players to keep him at the club. He is going to hopefully be a big sign of what's to come at Everton in the future."

Shame because he's brilliant and I disagree with comments in January that he can be easily replaced.

There are also strong rumours that Spurs have agreed a fee for Gomes, and that PSG want Richarlison. Going to be a fun transfer window. 😒

We're Bramley Moore away from the CL, which could be never.

Close the doors they're going out the window!

If any of these players move on, and today's gossip has Richarlison, Digne, and Gueye packing their bags then stick out for top dollar for heaven's sake.
Gueye is 29 and has years in him. Not a penny under £50 million. Richie £80- £90 million. Cash.
Would be sad to see them go but not heartbroken. Remember these are the guys who helped us finish in a vertigo inducing 8th place !
The replacements are out there but, for the love of God no more signings who then ply their trade in Istanbul.
I hate the way the BBC and other outlets dictate the moves and fees...for example Man U are considering buying Gueye. Just like that ! It should read EFC would consider selling Gueye, with cash offers in excess of £50 million being invited.
Here's hoping our leaders grow a pair

I do have faith in Marcel Brands, and if the last Summer Transfer Window is anything to go by, I am hopeful we will see more of those departures coupled with a few gems coming the other way.
I would like to see Tammy Abrahams in, although the Chelsea connection might hamper that, but a decent consistent striker is a must, Lo Celso, Trossard and Ziyech or Neres, Zouma to become a permanent fixture and we should be good to go.

No thanks, I say.
Again, letting (any of) our best players leave is just going backwards!!!
12 Posted 12/05/2019 at 14:46:13
Fully agree with that, Gana has another 4 years left at the top, we paid big money for sigg at 28/29 years old, so we should expect top dollar for Gana. 50m+ is market value, PSG are not short of money.
Digne and Richie are going nowhere, Silva will have none of it.

Why is it inevitable that he goes if we dont want him to? Were not scared shitless Everton anymore.
Who wants the money? Not me. Hes irreplaceable.

Tielemans is likely to return having impressed with Leicester, why not test Monacos resolve (whove struggled this season since the breakup of the side from 2 years ago)
16 Posted 13/05/2019 at 22:10:41
We might use the money to go buy a £40 million player whos only worth £7 million

The only down fall is the loss of transfer fee, but we signed Gana for £7m, we waste that type of money on wages every season for out and out dogs.
Gana has shown he will play on, and even if he changes up and downs tools we can make a huge statement to the likes of Richalison and our other valuable young assets that we wont be bullied.
Agents and clubs will get our message, if you want to take our first team players and we don't want to sell, you either back off or pay the massive premium that the likes of Spurs and the red shite demand.
We made fools of ourselves time and time again in the past, Lukaku being the most recent, he also had a contract, yet we sold him to the first bidder, if we would have waited a few weeks then the world went mad, Neymar went for crazy money, Dembele followed, then all the fees went nuts, we would have got £150m a few weeks later.

I believe that he will be playing for City next season, particularly as Fernandinho doesn't appear to have a full season in him anymore / lost Pep's trust.
21 Posted 16/05/2019 at 10:11:54
Problem is that likely he wants to move on. So ask Pds100m. If they want him badly enough they will pay it IMO

And its full of french.
