Inter have officially confirmed the signing of Atalanta midfielder Roberto Gagliardini, on loan with obligation to buy.

The 22-year-old had been taking his medicals with the Nerazzurri today, and his transfer has now officially been announced.

“Inter is pleased to announced the signing of Roberto Gagliardini from Atalanta,” a statement on the club’s official website confirmed.

“The 22-year-old midfielder joins on a two-year loan deal until 30 June 2018 with obligation to make the move permanent.”

The figures for the deal have not yet been revealed, but it’s expected to be a €2m loan, with a €20m transfer fee, while bonuses could take the transfer fee as high as €28m.

“I’m delighted to be an Inter player – this is a dream come true,” Gagliardini told the Beneamata’s website.

“I can’t wait to work with Stefano Pioli, meet my team-mates and of course wear this jersey at San Siro, in front of the Inter fans. I want to do my bit to help us achieve what this club deserves.”

Confirmed! Obligation to buy!

They never would've sold him with the option to buy only. The 1.5 year loan is pretty good, which means we'll have to pay in 2018, when supposedly Suning won't be restricted by FFP as it is now.

Here's the translation using google

I want to start from here. From this picture that every time makes me shudder. Almost moves me, then run a smile. Suddenly back before my eyes all the way that I have had the privilege of living with you. Bergamo, my home town, the first balloon to chase, my wonderful family that did not make me never want for anything, and that was, is and will forever be my strength, my guide. And Percassi family that has never stopped (especially in the bad times) to believe in me. My first, and huge thanks goes to them.
And then Atalanta, the love of a life that never goes out. Here are grown up, grown up, I learned to dream. Here I was taught the values, respect, any little thing. I do not forget anything, not even a detail.
The smiles with his comrades, the first goal, the celebrations, the shirts, the best moments as the most ugly. I do not forget anyone who really believed in me, who pointed us, who gave me.
But above all the affection of each individual fan.
Gasperini, he changed my career, life, and prospects. And I am grateful to him for life, needless to say more: forever thanks mister!
Today I realize one of my dreams, the future is waiting for me, it is now; But in my heart there is always that special place for you.
I was a child, and we have come a long way together. It happened all of a sudden, everything in a short time.
Too little perhaps to become your reference point, but quite definitely for you it you were for me.
As in many things in life, even today there is an explanation, a reason, an excuse to my farewell. But I would be untrue if I said I feel bad: I will play for one of the biggest clubs in the world.
I always loved talking little. But never a word as now can be worth more than all: thank you. A home is always home, and it is forever. And Atalanta is my home, and it always will be. The neroazzurro was in my destiny, and a pinch of you always comes down to the field with me.
Thank you very much, and for everything. Roberto

This is so not an Inter move. Normally, we would sign dark-skinned player who gets red cards every 2-3 games, a South American who's way passed it, or at best a 30 years old EU mediocre player who will join Milan 2 years later.

Therefore, I'll take this deal positively and believe that he's a good player.

Don't be naive. He's Atalanta youth since he was a kid, chances are that he hated the sight of us if anything. Yeah they will all say that it's a dream come true and what not, obviously.

No doubt that he loves our colours, though.

Well if anyone here thinks I'm making an offensive remark then relax cause I'm the last person in the world to do so. Players like Melo and Muntari have crossed my mind, but then you have Materazzi who was even worse in that specialization so I don't know. I'm barely awake at 4:00am and I don't want to turn on that thing in my skull for now.

Do you guys think he will play against Chievo? I am under the impression that it is likely to happen, as brozovic is disqualified and it is a relatively easy match, so it is probably the best situation to introduce a youngster in the starting lineup

Extremely long interview from Gagliardini. Sorry I'm too lazy to go through and bold all the questions.

Roberto Gagliardini was unveiled by Inter as the club’s latest signing by Inter’s Chief Communications Officer Robert Faulkner, CEO Steven Zhang, coach Stefano Pioli and Vice President Javier Zanetti who presented the player with the number 5 Jersey.

Afterwards he joined Roberto Monzani and Roberto Scarpini of Inter Channel to answer questions from the hosts as well as Inter fans who sent their questions via Inter’s different social media channels.

“It’s been an important day for my career. I want to give everything for this shirt” Gagliardini stated before settling down to answer questions sent in from all over the world.

Which players inspire you?

“When I was a kid I liked Zidane although I don’t have his playing traits or having seen him play live. Looking at today’s players I think Pogba is the best player in the world in his role.”

Who do you think, is Inter’s best player?

“I think there are many great players in the squad, I’m only trained once with the team but already you see that there’s a lot of quality. They can write the history of this sport.”

What do you do on your spare time?

“I like playing Playstation but given that I live with my girlfriend we have to do something we both enjoy. Sometimes I go for walks. I never choose myself when I play videogames.”

Why did you choose Inter?

“Because aside form having a fantastic history, it’s the club that wanted me the most.”

Are you ready to make your debut at the San Siro?

“yes, but I’m not scared of playing there, I’ve been brought here to give my contribution. The first time I played there was fantastic, I remember that when I entered the pitch we remembered the great historical moments that had taken place at the San Siro, goals we’ve watched since we were children.”

What does it mean to play at Inter?

“It’s a dream come true and an important opportinuty. After these months at Atalanta, it’s important to confirm oneself here at Inter.”

Did you know about the nickname that Scarpini has for you [The lion]?

“I hope to demonstrate to deserve it on the pitch.”

What is your favorite role on the pitch?

“I prefer to play as a centre-wide midfielder even if Gasperini played me in the centre and I enjoyed playing there. Also, playing in a 3-man midfield really suits me.”

Dejan Stankovic phoned in to the show, who wore Inter’s no 5 Jersey and commented on Gagliardini wearng that number: “It’s a great honor for me, I give Gagliardini all my best wishes from the Nerazzurri family. I wish that you will wear this shirt with great honor, Inter is a big club with great fans and a history to respect. But I can assure you that you will like it here.”

What about Suning’s project struck you the most?

“That they’re ambitious. The President wants to bring back the club to the level of past times, I feel pride that they have chosen me to achieve this.”

Descrivi l’Inter con tre aggettivi:
“Prestigiosa, inimitabile, ambiziosa”.

Describe Inter with three adjectives?

“Prestigious, inimtable and ambitious.”

What impression did you get when you played against Inter?

“I only played for 15 minutes, we won in the end thanks to a penalty. It’s a great memory, because it was an important win. But playing Inter is always difficult because of the many great players they have who put you in difficult situations.”

Is there a former Inter-player who you will like to model yourself after?

“I will say Zanetti, an example as a captain. He took Inter’s shirt to high levels for 20 years, I think that he is the symbol of Inter. Me as an Inter captain? It would be a dream. I’ve worn the captains armband at Atalanta’s Primavera team at times.”

What did you and Mattia Caldara say during your goodbye’s?

“On the pitch you don’t look in anybody’s face, outside we’re good friends. We’ve been doing this jov for 15 years.”

How do you explain your sudden explosion this season?

“I think that I have grown thanks to the help of Gasperini, who made me understand how to use my qualities to help the team. Then I’ve grown mentally in how I approach matches and training, so that’s why I am here now.”

Do the comparisons with Pogba put pressure on you?

“No because apart from the fact that these are journalistic headlines, I know where I have to go and how to get there.”

What are your objectives for the season?

“To do the best I can for Inter, finishing in the top 3 which is fundamental. We’re going through a great period and it’s important to maintain the continuity”

Is there anyone who has impressed you the most?

“I’m just getting to know everyone, I arrived yesterday and so time is needed. Some I’ve gotten to know with the national team, others because they were opponents, but going forward with time I will go deeper.”

What does it mean to transfer to a club that’s becoming more Italian like Inter? How is the study of languages going?

“I don’t have a Bergamo-accent as my parents are from Sicily and other parts of Italy. It’s a situation that could be stimulating to take on new languages.”

Do you know any other of your teammates?

“Candreva and Eder.”

Who was the first player that you met in the dressing room?

“Ranocchia maybe.”

How was your first tarining session under Pioli?

“Today I had the first training session together with the group, it was very positive ahead of saturday’s match.”

Were you stunned at how much Suning wanted to sign you right away?

“A little bit, not due to Suning’s wishes but because I was convinced I would stay at Atalanta. Then Inter’s offer arrived to which I didn’t say no and I took it on the fly, it’s a source of pride for me.”

What did you ask Pioli?

“He gave me tasks to do in the middle of the pitch and gave me advice.”

Is Inter a starting point or a point of arrival?

“It’s a starting point, because especially in our line of work you don’t need to think you’re reached a point of arrival. This is the first time I’ve signed for an important club and I want to give my all to confirm my place.”

Who will you score your first goal against? And how?

“If I can choose I’ll say the derby. Maybe scoring the winning goal when it’s 0-0 in the 90th minute.”

Would you like to play with Verratti?

“I got to learn to know him in the national team, he is surely a great player who is demonstrating his worth. He went from Pescara to PSG, it would be fantastic to play with him.”

Do you prefer to defend or to attack?

“I’ve changed this year, earlier I was looking to be for attacking minded, whilst this year I’ve learned the importance of defending, keeping position, stealing the ball from the opposition. I think it’s fundamental. I think that I also have the ability to know where the ball will arrive.”

What are the differences between what Pioli wants and what you want?

“I have to say that I’ve only had 1 training session with Pioli and that we have similar requests: being on the opponent, returning, doubling down on the opponents. This helps me to insert myself into Pioli’s tactical scheme.”

Will you be able to play against Chievo?

“If he asks this of me then yes so it’s the coach’s decision.”

What did you say to Zanetti?

“He told me the same things that Stankovic told me, you can feel that the loved this shirt and that they gave everything for Inter.”

How does it feel to have Walter Samuel as a teacher?

“He and I are similar as we both like to give out hits. Having my picture taken with him was an honor for everything he has done for Inter and football.”

Do you feel the rivalry with Juventus?

“A fair bit yeah, for having beaten them in the Serie A and also because they have been winning for years, it’s time for a change.”

Have you called Kessie?

“I have a great relationship with Franck and my former team-mates, this year he has done something incredible. He said goodbye to me and wished me the best, he has a bright future.”

Do you think you can play together with Kondogbia?

“I think so, sure we are bith midfielders with similar traits but also different ones where we complement each other. We could be a good duo.”

Do you think the overall value of your transfer could weigh you down?

“More than weighing me down it’s a motivation to do even more. It was an important investment and it bring me to want to give more.”

Which of one of Conti and Kessi do you reccomend?

“I’d take them both. Now Andrea will be alone in the room…”

What’s your best quality?

“I think my sense of positioning, I manage to cover most of the pitch by selecting by position well knowing where the ball will go. I make sure I’m prepared to take part in both attacking and defending.”

Did you really start your career as a striker?

“When I was 5 years old I played there and continued in that position until I was 7, then after a few years I resigned myself to playing further back.”

What do you think about Icardi?

“I think he is a champion. He is 1 year older than me and has achieved what he has achieved, and this bestows an honor to him. He was the Serie A top goalscorer 2 years ago, for me he is the pivot of this team.”

What do you expect from an all Inter San Siro?

“The first time I went on the pitch with the national it was a great feeling, then I remember the tifo’s in the derby. When the moment arrives it will be indescribable.”

Do you take part in Fantasy Football?

“No, and I never have.”

How is your weaker foot?

“For walking. But I manage, it’s not as good as my stronger foot but if I need to pass or shoot I use it.”

Which of Inter’s trophy is the most beuatiful?

“The Champions, which is the trophy that I hope to win so I can also be able to say that I’m part of the best team.”

What to you think of the tendency to let youngsters through?

“I’m happy, but I think this is a tendencu that is applied to those who deserve it. There are also great foreigners, it’s right that the one who deserves it gets to where he needs to be.”

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

“I hope to remain in a big club, being there at 32 years age means that I’ve given continuity in return. Then also all that it implies with winning titles and playing in the national team.”

Do you follow any other sports?

“I really like basketball and I support Cleveland in the NBA. I watch the matches via their app at night.”

Do you think that you could take on the role of playmaker?

“I think so yes, it is part of the qualities I bring to a team. I know how to alternate between defending and attacking, also retaining possession is a trait I possess.”

From Vicenza to Inter, what does it show?

“It demonstrates the growth I’ve underwent this season, last season I was worried about avoiding relegation and now I’m concerned with qualifying for the Champions League. It’s a big step to take. I like working, I work often both before and after training sessions. I’ve arrived here thanks to hard work.”

Do you promise to try to score against Juventus?

“I will try.”

What are your memories of Spezia?

“It was maybe the most difficult experience, I arrived at the end of the transfer window in a league that had already begun. I had some problems then I had some groin pains which forced me off the pitch for many months. It was difficult for me and those cose to me.”

If you score against Atalanta in the 90th minute, will you be said or be happy?

“Joy I think even if I left them 2 days ago and I owe them everything. I will always support them, then we’re professionals; if I score I wont celebrate but I will be happy.”

Do you have any pre-match rituals?

“No, maybe just listening to music.”

Do you think you can improve in the penalty area?

“It’s difficult to become worse given that I am yet to score. I know that it’s important, I will work on it.”

What’s your favorite food?

“My mother’s cooking, she’s Sicilian and I give her cooking a 10. She cooks great lasagna, then I like to eat everything.”

What do you prefer: scoring a goal or making an assist?

“Making an assist is beautiful because it makes you important, this year I’ve made a few and it was a beautiful feeling.”

Have you thought about your first goal and how you will celebrate it?

“It will come instinctively.”

Do you rate Andrea Pinamonti?

“He’s surely a promising player.”

Which midfielder do you rate the highest in the Serie A?

“I will say Pjanic, he has incredible quality and has everything to do well at a top club. But it has nothing to do with me.”

Do you use social media?

“I’m dont choke myself but I like to post and comment every now and again. Sharing my feelings.”

My brother?

“We played together as kids at Atalanta, now he’s playing in the Eccellenza [5th tier of Italian football]. This is a line of work that requires a lot of sacrifice, but it’s a choice you have to make.”

In conclusion Gagliardini sent a message to all the Inter fans: “I wait to see you all at the San Siro, I hope to be able to give you a lot of satisfaction.”

Calm on the ball and while on the pressure, seems solid even tho tonight's match wasn't tactically meant to show his real defensive skills, pairing him next to Brozo should be interesting to watch since k-dog takes more defensive tasks.

Well, the question is which of our young player are really good to keep a good form every game. Maybe Joao Mario? Its really a Inter related thing. Its impossible that so much players are not consistent in this club. Brozovic is a example who i say that its not Inters fault if he plays 3 good months and then he start to suck the whole season.

Said this im sure that Gagliardini will not play every game on this level. Only if Inter plays like today, then maybe yeah. But if Inter would play ever game this way, we would even have a chance for the second place. So no, its impossible to think about :yao:

One thing not mentioned here is that his wages are rumoured to be around 1,5m per season.

So, even if his total transfer fee costs (25m-30m) was not much lower than Kdog (~30m), his current wages would cost us 3m per year when compared to 7m per year for Kdog.

Are you trying to describe Candreva there? Seems like a perfect description for the latter.

Mario has been magnificent to our midfield, the upgrade of him and Banega went way over the roof compared to last season or any other seasons. Long gone were the days when we complained about our incompetency in stringing two passes together, and both Mario and Banega contributed a lot in this. Our midfield actually looks like they can put together an attack for once after the days of triplete, not just close their damn eyes and shoot from outside the box, trying their luck.

And now of course there's Gagliardini.

Interesting. Brozovic is an attacking midfielder and Joao Mario is right winger before joining us, at least on national team. I think Brozovic able to score more on that position. However, personally i still consider Banega and Candreva is the best option for this position.

In the little I've seem of Gagliardini he seems to be very dangerous (likely to score) in the air, on the other hand Kondogbia seems to have a similar problem as Ranocchia, they're a lot better in the air defensively than they're offensively.

Perisic - Brozovic - J. Mario
Kondogbia - Gagliardini
I think that's how Brozovic could fit into all this.

I like that. Specially the 'JM instead of Candreva' part. I remember one of the Portugese members saying that JM was initially a midfielder but then last year he was moved to RW and it was then that he exploded.

Only comment, I would go for a 4-3-3 instead of 4-2-3-1. Brozovic has both defensive and attacking qualities and can cover a lot of ground. So I think ge would be best as a CM. why limit him as an AM?

i still consider Banega <...> is the best option for this [CAM] position.

I don't and here's a thing. Banega never originally was a CAM (he even started as a DM at Boca). A deep-lying playmaker is his role since constructing play from the deep is his biggest skill. I feel he is techincally less gifted than Brozo when it comes to dribbling with the ball and finishing. I'm not so sure that Banega would be a better choice at the AM position than Brozo or even Joao Mario - both are more used to playing closer to the final third. That's my IMO, though. Haven't seen miracles from Banega in the CAM so far.

I find it amazing that we finally have quality players which can be rotated. This means we can finally stop playing only to our players strenghts but also to the opponents weakness, which means we can not only start with different formations but also change from our preferred 4231 to 433, 343 or 442.

Of course Gagliardini could play in any formation.

You guys should be more worried than excited about this guy. In years, Medel had been an undisputed starter in our midfield, much more talented men had tried to change that and failed miserably. Then a guy, who was not good enough for Serie B 6 months ago, suddenly appearing and sending Medel to the bench Melo to Brazil is simply unimaginable. Footballers don't develop in this kind of speed, it's theoretically and practically impossible. There are only 2 ways to explain his steep developments:

1. He's extremely talented but has some serious attitude problems. Not Balotelli's kind of attitude problems but kind of pedophile rapist's problems. I may even suspect he murdered someone and had to take a disguise of an average serie B player to stay under radar. The case may have been closed now so he decided to reveal his true talent.

2. He sold his soul to the devil. He's a good footballer now but in his 27th birthday, the devil will come and claim his life. So we only have 4 years left of him, and be sure to sell him for a good price before that or buy him some life insurance.

I could say Ansaldi is better than roberto carlos if i want to. That's my opinion, If you don't agree with me then ignore it but I don't think there are regulations to making claims based on my opinions. I well and truly believe he is the best midfielder. Everything you want in a midfielder he has. Physical strength, passing, composure, aerial ability, holding the ball, tackling, positioning and most of all maturity. If you think I am being hasty in deciding that then don't respond, this isn't a debate.

Well, he might be the best midfielder in the span of a season even and display everything you've pointed out, but to be the best midfielder in Italy he has to have a trait he just can't possess currently - consistency. We just can't know if he would be able to build up on his performances or not and history is full of one season wonders. Not saying he doesn't look promising, but extrapolating from a few games, especially when talking about young players is pretty rash.

If I was to compare him with another player, I'd probably do it with Busquets. If you don't look for him, he can seem pretty invisible. But a good midfielder is all about positioning, which Gagliardini does pretty well. One can influence the game without even touching the ball.

Atalanta's situation is symbolic of what's wrong with this sport. They basically have half of the Azzurrini starting for them along with a few other young talented players. Trending upwards with an outside shot at a Europa league bid.

Instead of watching the team grow over the next two to three years, they'll sell them all off to bigger clubs and end up back in the 10-15 range.

Once for a change, we picked up some amazingly intelligent players, at least in footballing aspect.

Both J. Mario and Gagliardini look smart enough to know when to attack and when to defend, how to position and who to cover at all times. That's half of the game really. Physical attributes might depend on form, but awareness doesn't.

Press conference with Roberto Gagliardini in front of Juventus-Inter

This is your first derby d’Italia. What have they told you? Any advice?
“This is my first game against Juventus and of course it will be a difficult game. It’s the best team in the championship we’re playing. But we go there in order to get the result we want.”

Did the loss in the cup take away any enthusiasm?
“It’s never fun to lose and it was a tough loss. But we showed that the team has spirit, we continued to fight even when we were down to ten men.”

Are you surprised of the impact you have made?
“No, I know what I’m capable of and I knew what I could bring to the team. Being able to play immediately made me integrate faster. I’m happy and I hope I can continue like this.”

How would you describe yourself and who inspires you?
“I don’t like making comparisons. I’m not a player who looks at others and wants to be like them. I like players who are technical and play with quality, but I have different characteristics.”

Is the midfield of Juventus the best one in the country?
“I think the team and their midfield is really strong.”

Do you think of the fact that a win on Sunday means you’re back in the scudetto race? “We have the conviction of playing on equal terms, we can get a result. If they do well it’s an important step, but if we win we would send a message to the rest of the league that we can be amongst the top three.”

How close to Juventus were you?
“I don’t know and I don’t care. I didn’t even think about coming to Inter, I was happy at Atalanta. Then Inter came with an offer and that was a positive thing. But of Juventus I know nothing.”

What is the mistake you have to avoid on Sunday and what player would you like to remove?
“The start is crucial, starting with the right nastiness is important. Showing them that we can have our say. We have to be compact, ready to defend and to attack. They are the strongest team, I would like to remove Bonucci, the most complete player at the overall level.”

Who’s behind your new confidence?
“I think I changed mentality under Gasperini, I changed my way of playing. Before I didn’t know how to use my charachteristics for the team’s best, but with Mister that changed. He was happy with my transfer to Inter, happy for me but of course less happy for Atalanta.”

With what teams will you fight for the third spot?
“Looking at the standings it should be with Roma and Napoli, but being behind doesn’t entirely depend on us. We can surpass them in the six-points games, but we will give them a fight and then we’ll see where we end up.”

Do you think about being called up to the national team in March and has the transfer to Inter made it easier for you?
“I don’t think about that a lot, coming here is an opportunity that I hope to take advantage of. If I continue like this, the national team will be a consequense.”

What have Pioli meant to you compared to Gasperini? Which of your teammates has helped you the most?
“Mister Pioli has a lot of similarities to Mister Gasperini, but the teams play with different models so now I play with different ideas. The teammates are all different and when you get to know them you also know who to ask for certain things.”

Your agent said that in August you felt like being out of form, are you recovered now?
“I was thinking this after having played in the second league for a couple of years. I wanted to play in the Serie A and thought I was behind my teammates. This year has been special, I did well at Atalanta then I came to Inter, maybe everything went to fast. But now I will give everything I have in order to stay here.”

What do you need to improve in order to score some goals?
“I have to improve a lot, I know that scoring goals is important both on a personal level and also for the team. I have to be more nasty and believe in it more. I don’t know what I have to improve, maybe if I score once the others will come.”

Do you think Juventus’ midfield lost in strength when Pogba left? Who is the player that you don’t want to face?
“Pogba left, but Pjanic came, the strongest player in Italy when it comes to quality and abilities. And that answers also your second question.”

The fans think that you are Suning’s weapon launched against Juventus. Is the game on Sunday your game?
“They all are, I always want to make a difference. Of course this will be an important game, but I don’t feel that special. I just want to do well for the team and I hope to give everything I have on Sunday.”

Despite not being able to get the ball in, I get the feeling that it's only a matter of time before the floodgates open. The timing of his late runs into the box and his ability to win a header could potentially lead to him scoring a handful every season (4-7) A few goals should take the pressure off and make him more composed in those situations.

CoolMan44
12 Feb 17, 16:07
Yup. Some people said both Kondogbia and Gagliardini can't shoot, but I think it's different. I don't see Kondogbia scoring many goals at all as his shots almost never make the target and his role in the team is different so he's hardly every in the opposing team's box.

Gagliardini won't be a good distance shooter but his movement in the box is great, he's great in the air, and the majority of his shots are on target. Since he's able to find himself in good positions consistently, I think he'll start scoring. In some way, he reminds me of Cambiasso who was always at the right place at the right time and managed to score many times. Cambiasso was tactially ahead of most players and had a nose for where the ball would go. Let's hope Gagliardini can get here, and in addition he's very good in the air.

I agree that he will score soon. But in the air he seems to be closer to Godin than Cambiasso. His positioning and the way he avoids yellow cards are unique.
