Monaco fan or an OTIB imposter on their club forum?

Really surprised by this young person. Really he is top, pity he arrives in a team of shit.

Tommy?

So let's assume the rumours about Brownhill going to Leicester are bull, where does Massengo play?

I'm hoping in place of Pack, otherwise with 2 up front if we get this mystery striker and 1 wide man, there are only 3 midfield spots for 6 centre mid players;  Pack, Walsh, Brownhill, Pato, Palmer and Szmodics. It's fairly obvious LJ does not 'trust' Walsh and Pato more likely to be cameo roles if not sold, but that's still 4 players to fill 3 spots and that's not counting when Korey is back.

I am happy of course, but I cannot get my head around this one... He is 18 and played a few games in the CL and is a 'hot prospect', then he signs for a championship team and in his first interview talks about getting back into the CL. 

The only motivation I can see as possible, that I hope is true, is he is dropping down intentionally to try and play more games. Otherwise this just doesn't make sense to me...

Fingers crossed we have a gem on our hands.

 

More likely that BCFC, particularly in France, has a growing reputation of signing players, improving players, and not standing in the way of players when a Prem team comes calling. 

We are seen as a team that talented players are now happy to come to, and so what if it’s a stepping stone in their career. We get to see some quality players and if they don’t make it to the Prem / CL with us then we’ve given them the opportunity to showcase their talent, give them the experience and allowed them to progress their career. 

I don’t have any problem with this.

It’s a good question. I wonder if he purely sees us as a stepping stone to the promised land rapido i.e. next summer.

Would not be a surprise if that is how we ‘sold’ the move to him. We win by having him for the year and hopefully performing added to a huge profit next summer.

I would imagine exactly this.

GmGface is saying that the £7-8m fee quoted in France isn't right. So maybe it isn't as huge a gamble as it seems.

Will be interesting to see what exactly he says the number was. Hasn't said what it was in the article on the BP site - little tease.

Maybe the lad just wants to play football, he never got a sniff after Henry was sacked and became frustrated,

he’s seen how young players get treated here and wants to be a part of it,

he won’t be with us for long and we will get more for him then we did for webster,

Or alternatively he could be like that highly rated youngster Ryan Kent who came here from a massive club and proved he couldn't do it in this league.

To most this signing came out the blue but this is something we worked on last summer as are under 23 squad played Monico last year and that's where connections we're made. LJ flew out and watched him on several occasions 1 of which I believe was a champions league game. Also he was tipped to go to Chelsea but with their embargo it wasn't possible. This for me is where I think we have been very clever and MA in particular as we've signed him on a 4yr deal and wouldn't mind betting his next destination will be Chelsea......

IIRC the last player we signed after playing against our youth team was Clive Whitehead, and he didn't turn out too bad. Didn't cost 8 million mind.

Must be one of the strangest transfers in the history of the club. Literally no idea if he's any good, seems crazy money to me. You get a player of Kalas quality for that. 

I guess he won't be warming the bench, good luck kid.

I was thinking of Fabregas yesterday and thinking he could be similar. Not the biggest but controlled midfields from what 18/19yrs old? Technique, composure and excellent passing but also stick a foot in

Have you not read the conspiracy theory that City are signing him as Chelsea currently have a transfer ban in place? They have been aware of this kid for a while so we are doing them a favour by bringing him to England. Assuming the lad does well Chelsea will have first refusal on him once their ban expires.

We’ve just signed a 18 year old hot prospect from Monaco with Champions League experience.

This doesn’t happen to Bristol City...

With all respect, that is utter nonsense.

We agree to do that THEN get found out, the punishment would make going into Administration look like a walk in the park.

Remember the background of our owner - there is no way in the world he would be party to any of that.

SL alluded in his interview about how our relationships with bigger clubs have taken us into a different world in terms of players.

No rules would be broken if Chelsea had ‘recommended’ him and in honesty I think it makes perfect sense. 

I’m not saying that’s what happened etc but it wouldn’t surprise me to see him end up at Chelsea in a couple of years for 20m+

For Massengo, I will not be surprised that in 3 months Henry arrives as a coach and begins to place his balls during the transfer window

I had the 'misfortune' (I saw Bristol on the title I zapped out of curiosity) to watch on Bein Sunday aprem against Leeds but what a disaster this team of serious broken arms. Already Leeds (on this game I've never seen others) it was bad but Bristol except the black in the middle that has made 2/3 breakthroughs interesting, the rest is 0.

One interesting fact about this transfer is that Massengo is on the same wages as he was earning at Monaco.

He was unhappy at not progressing at his old club when Henry left .

 I believe now that Nketiah will join us with the Henry connection.

I’m a bit confused by this signing, as I’m sure some others are. 

What’s the new plan for the team? Where does Han-Noah fit in? Will any established players be leaving? Will there be a new striker?

 It just feels a bit of a shambles at the moment. Good luck to the lad, and welcome to City, though.

My take on this signing. Is he has huge ambitions to play in the premiership. And see us as the perfect stepping stone . The fee is not 8 million euros as reported. Apparently. He has huge potential and we will end up selling him for 40 million. All my opinion

its undisclosed, therefore unless you are an employee of BCFC in the heart of the finances you will not know.  Everything on the forum is pure speculation and  also from the media.  I am sure M  Ashton will come out and tell us at some stage. (confident it is below Kalas fee or we would be announcing a record signing?)

So it could be 39 million.

Could be if that’s what you think. This is what I read this morning 

Gotcha: Massengo signs

The big news from last night: Han-Noah Massengo signs for Bristol City.

What a start to the week and hopefully one of a number of new City signings.

Details: four-year deal, for a fee that we understand will be LESS than the £7 Million reported elsewhere.

Bonkers signing..

This is not the player we need for this kind of €€ at this stage of his development and ours - we're trying to run before we can walk.

Baffling use of our money when players who can affect/improve the starting eleven right now are badly needed.
