Moses will be a great addition, that for sure, & with Iheanacho back again, things are looking good for another title assault!
Moses is a great loan capture, he'll bring a great creative spark!

European Giants Approach Arribage
Arribage may be standing on a different sideline at the start of next season

• Manchester United, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla have all approached Arribage
• Toulouse chairman Olivier Sadran has offered Arribage a new contract
• Arribage has been given a small period of time before having to decide on his future

After turning Toulouse from perennial relegation candidates to title contenders, Toulouse manager Dominique Arribage has been linked to a number of jobs across Europe. It has been reported that Manchester United, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla have all approached Arribage over the past few days.

Louis van Gaal has been sacked by Manchester United after finishing fifth last season despite the club making the UEFA Champions League Semi-Final. This season, Manchester United will be looking to build depth into a squad which already features talented players such as Alvaro Morata and Anthony Martial.

Atletico Madrid finished sixth in a very disappointing season which led to the sacking of manager Julen Lopetegui. Despite the poor season, there will still be high expectations placed upon the side with a squad that features the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Morgan Schneiderlin.

After a successful season, Unai Emery has left Sevilla to become the manager of Liverpool during the summer. Sevilla managed to finish third in La Liga and will need to prepare for a campaign in the UEFA Champions League as they head into the new season.

Toulouse chairman Olivier Sadran has offered Arribage his full support in whatever decision he makes but has offered the 47-year-old a new deal at Toulouse should he choose to stay with the club. It is believed that Arribage will have small period of time before having to decide on his future with Sadran asking him to continue to prepare Toulouse for the upcoming season until he has made his decision.
Please stay at Toulouse, it's too early to go :P
You've gotta stay! Toulouse need to offer you a new deal here otherwise they're in trouble!
Plenty of offers on the table... I'll be supporting you no matter where you manage!
You need to stay man.
There are two options you can do, stay or leave for FC Midtjylland. ;)

Former Toulouse Captain Leaves On Loan
Abel Aguilar has been sent out on loan and will play in the Eredivisie this season for Vitesse

• Aguilar has left Toulouse on loan in an attempt to play more first team football
• During his time at Toulouse, Aguilar managed to win three trophies as captain
• In other news, Adrien Regattin has left Toulouse to join Havre Athletic Club

Abel Aguilar is set to play in the Eredivisie this season after Toulouse sent their former captain out on loan to Vitesse for the season. The 33-year-old midfielder has spent five seasons at Toulouse so far in his career, making 145 appearances for the club.

Arriving at Toulouse from La Adelante side Hercules CF at the start 2013/14 season, Aguilar quickly found himself thrusted into the starting line-up upon his arrival. After being named Toulouse captain ahead of the 2015/16 season, Aguilar led Toulouse to victory in the French Cup and French Champions Trophy in 2016 before going on next season to lead the club to its maiden Ligue 1 title in 2017.

The Colombian has also had a solid international footballing career. After making his debut in the Copa America in 2004, Aguilar would go on to be capped by his country 54 times including an appearance at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil in which Colombia made the quarter-finals before being eliminated by the host nation.

“I couldn’t be happier in everything that I have achieved during my time at Toulouse, if I never play for the club again I can leave with great memories.” said Aguilar. “I understand why my role at Toulouse has been reduced but I still want to play as much football as possible, thankfully this loan will see me be able to do that.” he added.

In other transfer news, Adrien Regattin is set to leave Toulouse after recently promoted Havre Athletic Club secured the services of the Moroccan for €1.6 million. Regattin joined Toulouse in the 2009/10 season after leaving FC Sete 34, the winger played 146 games for Toulouse during his nine seasons at the club and scored 11 goals.
Isn't insulting stripping a player from his captaincy and kicking him out temporarily??
Haha i do feel a bit sorry for him here ;)
Ohh is there trouble in Toulouse causing him to go on loan??? Seems harsh sending a former captain on loan.
Very brutal manager there ;) Hope it works out well for both of you though :P
Good to see that Aguilar took it well
Don't leave you'll regret it (speaking from personal experience).
