Other rules for transfer rumors and discussion:
Do not repost the same rumor repeatedly. If someone posted something about us being after a particular player yesterday, do not post the same rumor today. If this article doesn't bring up any new information, don't post it!
Do not post rumors from any website behind a paywall.
Do visit the stickied transfer thread if you would like to discuss a particular pursuit for a player but there is no new information to be posted.
Do use the post flair options to tag any transfer news that is not reported from a Tier 1 source (player or club).
