Can't see us letting Max go on loan to Barca, especially without an obligation to buy. Doubtless SW has RB transfer options ready with Byram out until January, but it'd be a major disruption to bring in a new player now. The current options would be 18 year old Mumba or Rupp, who can also play there. At least we already had a replacement for Jamal in Quintilla, who had the pre-season to settle in. Max would be much harder to replace, but his agents seem to be working hard to find him a move.
