That wouldn’t make him a Sven signing in my book. He may have accelerated the process but Auba was a known quantity to us and have actively chased before Sven arrived and before the guy who had final say on transfers left.
Torreira is a player who fits Emery’s CM profile exactly. I feel he was a signing where Emery had significant input compared to Sokratis who we were being linked with before the manager was even announced. It’s not inconceivable Emery had discussions with PSG staff in finding a suitable Motta replacement
The point is with Leno and Sokratis I get the sense Sven use his own initiative with these deals because of his knowledge of both players. He would have the best sense of their value which I feel he has overpriced particularly for Papa.
Mislintat is not immune to criticism, he occupies a very important position which comes with high standards. I’m glad the holes have been identified but that was the bare minimum you could ask of any club.
He needs to prove himself imo and doing bad business that could be avoided or ignoring are smarter solutions in your first summer is not the way to go about that. I’m actually not asking for a Dembele every window just smart frugal business
It all depends on the performance level of the players, I prefer to judge summer windows in May
