as of today, Ousmane Dembélé is without a club, which means that many top clubs would be able to get him for free.
according to, clubs like fc chelsea, bayern munich or even the french serial champion psg are interested in the french right winger.

For me the hottest candidates to sign Dembele are definitely Chelsea or PSG. I don't think that Bayern is really interested in signing him as they have just made the transfer of Sadio Mane which is also a winger and now they have Mane, Sane, Gnabry and Coman which are basically 4 world class offensive wingers so i highly doubt that they want to have a fifth one because only two of them will play most of the time.
A move to Chelsea would make sense because Dembele already played under Tuchel during their time at Borussia Dortmund and Tuchel is still a fan of him. Also PSG would also make sense because Dembele is french obviously.

@hahay irrespective of the odds and the rumours I believe that he won’t leave Dortmund in a World Cup year, because if he transfers now and gets limited playing time then he’ll drop out of the World Cup squad, hence I expect that he’ll stay put for this season. However next year I expect many teams to target him, and I wouldn’t be surprised if all top 6 teams in premier league ended up targeting him.

That is acutally a pretty good point. I also think it would be a pretty big risk for Bellingham if he would go to one of the top clubs now because, as you say, it is very likely that he won't be in the starting eleven there a lot of times. I personally think though that he would be nominated for the World Cup even if he would not be on the field that much, because it was obvious that Bellingham is a great addition to the english national team when he were subbed in against Germany.
I doubt that Liverpool will want to sign him for the coming season as they have already spent 75 Million € for Nunez already this year, so i doubt that they can pay another 100 M € for Bellingham.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: FTX Is Buying Fallen Unicorn BlockFi for Mere Pennies: Report !!! on: July 01, 2022, 10:30:43 AM
Cryptocurrency giant FTX is finalizing a deal to acquire troubled lender BlockFi for just $25 million, according to a report published by CNBC.
The aforementioned sum is just a drop in the bucket compared to the $5 billion valuation the company sought a year ago. The prominent cryptocurrency lending company was also vocal about its plans to go public.
Last March, BlockFi landed a $350 million Series D funding round that boosted its valuation to $3 billion. The acquisition deal is expected to be inked by the end of this week, the report says.

I have not heard of that news before so thanks for posting that. I have to admit though that i am still pretty doubtful if this deal will really happen. I mean i understand that the bear market has hit a lot of projects in terms of price and valuation but the numbers that are stated here just seem to far off in my opinion.
I hardly doubt that BlockFi is now worth only 1/120th of it's value that i had a year ago. This can not be explained by the current bear market or by other normal market movements. I know that Defi-projects took a hard hit after the events of Terra Luna but to lose more than 99% of the value just seems to much.

So they unlocked the market for Barcellona, they are trying officially for Raphina.

I really don't understand the way that FC Barcelona is handling their money. They had 1,3 Billion € of debts because of that and were almost completely broke. Because of that they recently had a vote where the club members decided that FC Barcelona will sell 25% of their TV licensing rights and also 49% of their Barca licensing and merchandise branch. They basically have to sell club property because of their high debts.
Now instead of using that money to try to get rid of a big part of the debts as soon as possible they want to sign Lewandowski and are willing to pay 50 Million € as transfer fee for him and also a high salary and they also want to sign Raphinha which would also be very expensive. That is just irresponsible in my opinion.

Some very good coins out there have lost 95% of their value already is it possible to see more down fall? I'm throwing this to those that are present in last bear market, marketcap and volume is over millions of dollars and price is 95% down?  Shocked :I downfall still possible? For example Metahero.

I don't think that anyone can give you a clear answer on that because all we can do is just guessing. I personally think that there is definitely another downfall possible maybe even way more than that. I also think it is possible that we have not even seen half of the bear market that is still coming, but of course that is also just my personal feeling. The last few days have been pretty bloody already again. Bitcoin is below 19000 USD at the moment and Ethereum is just barely above 1000 $ per coin.
For me it is kinda unexpected that Bitcoin is losing just as much as most of the bigger altcoins. In bear markets in the past Bitcoin was more stable in such situations.

One of the problems that happened to Lewandowski was wanting for his salary to be increased but Bayern Munich didn't agree to it, this had such a bad impact that in the end the player wanted to leave. I also previously assumed that, when Bayern Munich signed Mane maybe it would be easier for the negotiations that took place between Bayern Munich and Barcelona. But what happened Bayern Munich remained strong in his desire at the price he wanted, even though Barcelona did not give up and kept trying to get Lewandowski.

As far as i know Lewandowski is earning around 25 Million € per year at the moment at Bayern Munich. This is one of the top salaries in Europe and i think it was already pretty generous from Bayern to offer Lewandowski a new contract with the same salary again. In the end we also have to put into account that covid took a heavy hit on the financial income of all clubs including Bayern. To demand a pay raise even under those circumstances is pretty outrageous in my opinion.
Today i read the news that bayern declined another offer of Barcelona which had 40 Million € as immediate transfer fee plus 10 Million € of possible bonuses. I think if Barcelona is offering 50 Million € without any bonuses then Bayern will agree. At least i hope that.

Anyone noticing new projects still raising millions of dollars? Mohash and Dynamic for example, I think new projects will replace lots of top altcoins in coming years and my advice to young investors is to find new projects to mix with their portfolio, remember that Matic, Polkadot, Avalnache are once all new projects in 2018/2019..

During the last Bull run i mainly invested into new and upcoming projects because i am part of a few launchpads and there i could take part in the private sale of new projects. During the height of the last bullrun in may 2021 my portfolio had a significant value, at least for my standards, but sadly now the portfolio value is now down at least 95% from it's ATH.
That is the reason why i don't really follow new and upcoming projects at the moment and why i have never heard of Mohash and Dynamic before.
It can definitely be true though that if projects are confident enough to launch during a bear market like these and are still doing well, then the chance that they will be pretty big projects in the future is definitely there.

Lukaku is now officially a player of Inter again.
It is incredible how they managed to get him almost for free again after selling him for 120m€ 1 year ago.

Definitely a very good deal for Inter. That being said we should not mix things here, because Inter is paying 8 Million € of loan to Chelsea for Lukakus services for 1 season. This number could go up to 12 Million with bonuses. Lukaku remains a player of Chelsea even if he is playing for Inter now in the next season. If the reports that i have read are correct than Chelsea also did not offer a clause to buy Lukaku after that 1 season. If Lukaku is performing well at Inter again and they want to sign him then i would guess that Chelsea would want at least 70 Million € for him.
So basically Inter has to pay around 20 Million € now (loan fee + salary) in order to get Lukaku for just 1 season.

About new cryptocurrencies what interests you most in an ICO? What strengths and weaknesses in the ICO? And what values ​​do you as an investor observe before acquiring a crypto asset before its launch?

First of all i think the time of the traditional ICO's that we had in the years 2017 and 2018 are pretty much dead nowadays if i am not wrong. Back in the day most of those ICO's could be joined by anyone and most of the ICO's did not even have a hard cap back then which mean everyone could invest without limits. Like the Filecoin ICO that collected more than 250 Million $.
Nowadays most of the projects are only doing small public rounds, which means that you either can only invest a very small amount if the project is very hyped and a lot of people want to invest or you need to join a lottery in order to be allowed to invest.
You should always check the whitepaper, the roadmap, the team behind the project and also the tokenomics of a new project before you invest.

I think Liverpool are getting the players they deserve for Mane's departure, although Nunez will have to adapt first. But for a young player like him who has more motivation it looks like it will go well. When he plays well and as expected, I think Liverpool will easily move on from a Mane who we know he has contributed a lot to this club.

To pay 75 Million € (it can go up to 100 Million € if all bonus targets are met) for such a young player that has not really shown if he can really deliver his performances in the best European Leagues is obviously a very big risk. I expect that Liverpool will not be as strong as they were at the end of last season when the new season starts. They have lost Mane, which is an absolute world class player that was used to play in the english premier league and he was a very important part of the team for a few years already. Even if Nunez is adapting very fast and is able to deliver everything that people are expecting from him, i don't think that he can fully replace Mane in the first matches. It will take some weeks to do that.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Solana drop up to 5% on: June 29, 2022, 04:06:04 PM
should i buy this time or invest in other Crypto? is Solana good investment?

No one can look into the future and all we can do is give our best estimates here about what can happen in the next few days, weeks and months. I can say that i also have Solana in my personal watchlist to invest into. I still have a little bit of stablecoins laying around that are doing nothing and that i want to invest into promising projects of which i think can do a x10 from it's current price in the mid- and longterm future. Solana is one of those.
I personally will not invest until the price per Sol goes down to below 30 USD, maybe even below 25 $ depending on the market at that moment. I think a few more negative days like today and we will see those prices.

My guess is that if Lewandowski leaves Bayern Munich, the Bayern Munich management will consider Ronaldo as Lewandowski's replacement. I don't think they will put Lewandowski and Ronaldo in the squad at the same time. This will ruin their match strategy or formation. If Lewandowski wants to leave the team, Bayern Munich is trying their best to keep Lewandowski in the team. We will have to wait a few more days to see if the Bayern Munich management will sign Ronaldo.

I agree with you that Lewandowski will probably leave Bayern Munich this summer. A few weeks ago Bayern was very clear that there is no chance at all that they will let Lewandowski go now but things have changed in the last few weeks with the signing of Sadio Mane and also other stuff that happened. Now the Bayern officials are not ruling it out categorically anymore that Lewandowski will leave the club. I personally hope that they let him go if Barcelona is making an offer of 45 or even 50 Million € for him.
Even if Lewandowski is leaving though there is not chance at all that Bayern will sign Ronaldo. They are very reasonable about how they are spending their money and they would never pay a salary of 30 Million € per year or more for a 37 year old player.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What do you think about altcoin market on: June 28, 2022, 04:10:42 PM
Is polka-dot a good price at 7 dollars? This was its price two years ago, do you think that polka-dot can still go down or not? Have we met the bottom for altcoins or all these are just fake outs? What do you think about altcoin market.

It is really hard to tell if we are in for another big dump or not. I personally think that the bear market is not over yet and that we will witness at least one more drop of prices and by that i mean Ethereum going down below 1000$ and BTC going down below 20000$ per coin. This would probably mean that we would see polkadot at around 6,50 $ again or even lower.
If you believe though that Polkadot is a project that will do well in the mid- and long term future then i think it will not matter that much if you buy for 7 $ or for 6 $ per DOT if you are planning to hodl until it is at 50$ plus. Of course it is always best to hit the perfect time to enter, but that is almost impossible.

I don't know what plans Chelsea have for replacing Lukaku but Christiano Ronaldo moving to Chelsea seems very unlikely. He wouldn't do that to Manchester United. Lewandoski might be open to a move to Chelsea and with his price tag Chelsea are in a better position to get him than Barcelona at the moment and I think he will be open to the idea of moving to the English premier league.

I agree that Cristiano Ronaldo will probably not move to FC Chelsea. He is still a very loved player at Manchester United and especially the fans of the clubs are really liking him, so i heavily doubt that he would risk to lose all of that positive attitude towards him that was building up over more than a decade with a single transfer.
I also doubt that Lewandowski wants to go to Chelsea to be honest. I recenlty read an interview with the agent of Lewandowski and there he said, that his client was always dreaming to play for Barcelona at least once in his career and now is the chance and that he would not leave Bayern for any other club.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Among all which do you hold on: June 28, 2022, 10:52:31 AM
Hello I have thought of holding 4 particular currencies which includes BTC, ETH, BNB, UCT. But within me I feels I should trade with them to accumulate more of those currencies maybe before the bear will be finally over I would have ended up having much of them I engaged myself by trading.
I want to know if holding or trading will be more preferred. All suggestions are welcomed.

I personally am in general a notorious holder. Which means i buy a relatively small amount of coins from time to time and then i hold them for at least a year because of the tax regulations in my country but in most cases i hold them even longer. Sadly my portfolio that mainly consists of small cap altcoins is like 95% down at the moment compared to it's ATH back in may of 2021. So here that holding strategy did not pay off.
Active trading can be a way of course to increase the holdings of your coins. I sold the Waves that i had a few weeks ago for around 51 $ per waves and 2 weeks ago or so i took a part of that money to buy Waves back for around 4,45 $ per Waves. Now i have more than double the amount of Waves that i had before and also still a bit of stable coins laying around.

The move was quite unexpected for me too. I know of good European clubs that would give an arm to get his signature. LA is a good club tho and seems to have a good coach in Cherundolo .His move there could further bolster the club's confidence and performance as it looks like his last days at Real were not productive.

I was also very surprised when i read the news that Bale will most likely go to Los Angeles. I mean Gareth Bale is "only" 32 years old (even though he will be 33 in a few weeks) so i think he could have played at least 2 or 3 more seasons at the absolute highest level in a european league. I still remember that he was basically the hottest and most wanted player back in 2012 and 2013 before he made the move to Real Madrid for an extremely high transfer fee for that time of 101 Million €.
It's kinda sad for me to seethat a lot of people seemed to have forgotten about him in the last season and no one was really talking about him also in this transfer period so far while there are still a lot of rumors about Cristiano Ronaldo for example. A player that is 5 years older than Bale.

Can Bitcoin cash reach 2000$ in 2026 like I see now?
I see in the site coinriders that it may reach 2000$ in 2026 if you compare amazon expected growth per years to bitcoin cash expected growth.
Is it make sense?

At the moment Bitcoin cash is trading around 115 USD. Which means it would need to make around a x17 from it's current price to reach the 2000 $ mark per coin. So a huge growth is needed in order to reach this high price so i am not sure if this is realistic at all. That being said the all time high of Bitcoin Cash was at around 3900 USD so it definitely is not impossible to reach 2000 $ in 2026 in my opinion. A lot of stuff can happen in 4 years after all.
It all depends on the overall market movement. I don't really see Bitcoin cash making a huge run by itself to be honest because there are just so much other projects out there that seem to be more innovative and future proof in my opinion.
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: ⚽ Football Transfers Speculation, Odds and Predictions on: June 26, 2022, 09:12:32 PM
Chelsea would be fine, considering they are not happy with Lukaku, they could replace him with Ronaldo and they would be doing fine with him at striker position instead. In fact, Bayern would work out well too if they are planning on selling Lewandowski, in that case they could sell Lewandowski for like 50 million, which they have been trying to do for a while now, and get Ronaldo for 20-30 million, hell if I know Bayern and how cheap they are, they would get him for 15 million Cheesy All in all, Ronaldo is a great striker, even at his age he would bring a lot of talent to a lot of teams and would make them a much better team for sure.

I think it is a pretty safe thing to say that there it is completely unrealistic that Bayern Munich will try to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, even if Lewandowski will leave the club and goes to Barcelona. There are several reasons for that. It would make absolutley no sense for Bayern to invest a lot of money into a player that is already 37 years old, even if we are talking about Cristiano Ronaldo here, he is still way past his prime in my opinion. Even if he would cost only around 20 Million € of transfer fee then he will demand a salary of at least 25 Million € per season i would guess because at the moment he gets around 30 Million per season at ManU AFTER taxes.

does anyone here believe that next season a team other than bayern will be able to win the bundesliga?  Grin

A few weeks ago i was still thinking that in the coming season the chances for the other clubs to finally beat Bayern Munich in the race for the Bundesliga title would be as high as never before in the last few years because of all the negative sentiment that was present at Bayern at the end of the last season with their pretty bad performances in the league and so on, but now things definitely have changed their.
The surprising transfer of Sadio Mane to Bayern has totally changed the whole sentiment at the club now. Hassan Salihamidzic was criticized a lot during the last season also from his own fans but now with this transfer he gets a lot of praise suddenly. If Bayern is able to transport the positive mood into the next season, then no team can come close to them in the league i think.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Which alt-coin do you trust the most? on: June 26, 2022, 01:48:37 PM
I invested in ethereum when it was $700 in 2020 and in 2021 when it was $4000 I sold it. I just  bought again now that the value has reduced. I still trust that it will increase rapidly soon.

Seems like you hit the timings pretty well with your buys and sells of Ethereum. Gratulations to that. You sold it pretty close to it's all time high which is always a great feeling afterwards. I would also say that Ethereum is probably the altcoin that i have the most trust in. Both in terms of general trust into the project itself and in the team behind it and of course also trust that Ethereum will remain to be the most important altcoin of them all also in the mid- and long term future. Therefore i think it is totally reasonable to invest into Ethereum now especially if you plan on holding again for a few years or so.
