Rumours of a Bailly/Ozil January swap. Personally this would be absolutely mental. Firstly Özil is who likes to play centrally or from the left not the right. Secondly we need CB’s. I can see the logic behind we’re losing Mata a player of similar ilk and we all know Mourinho highly rates Özil. But surely not? We need someone to come in down the right if we’re making an attacking transfer and we need Jones/Rojo/Smalling (listen to my reasoning) to go if we’re selling as we know the ceiling of these players. We don’t know yet what Bailly could achieve as he improves those 3 aren’t going to. If this were Tom happen I’d say we aren’t allowed to sell Jones/Smalling because of the HG limit.
