Funny.

Skriniar's expression in that drawing is the same as mine when I heard how much he reportedly cost.

I can't say i am a huge fan of this move. He was decent at an extremely mediocre Sampdoria side but i can't say he had impressed me. Hopefully he's a hidden gem and not just another Martin Skrtel. I hope Spalletti and Sabatini know what they're doing.
Welcome aboard Skriniar. Make us forget you have such a terrible first name.

Name will be changed back to Milan as soon as he makes a mistake that will cost us a goal. Won't take too long. :)

Can look at it a couple ways

A.) he cost 33 million!! Rugier who we wanted went to Chelsea for 35
B.) 18 mill + a prospect
C.) exiting prospect + what we paid for Persic or Milan paid for Muchossio who is better.
D.) is Inter like a child because how the hell haven't we given up on it already
E.) you better be 4x better then Murillo

Spaletti will make him 70 mils CB in 2 years, ended in Real Madrid or PSG.

07 Jul 17, 13:18
If you want to know how this transfer will turn out then look at Roma's transfers in the past few years. I'm very optimistic about Skriniar.

There's no way that Sabatini and Spalletti would approved spending 33m on a relatively obsecure defender without knowing what they're doing.

firmino
07 Jul 17, 13:21
i don't trust sabatini very much tbh, but i trust spalletti (although i don't really understand borja valero). and above all i trust my eyes: i hope nobody will quote this in 5 years à la acquafresca to make fun of the post, but i see an extremely high potential in this guy.

A is a pretty useless point since roma would have never valued capriari at 15 mio so even if we would have added 2 mio to that we would not have had a chance to get rudiger with that offer.
C) only time will fucking tell who is better i m not that impressed by musacchio good defender and atm definitely better than skriniar but he s also 5 years older.

You do realise he only cost this much because we HAD to make the 30mil right? As in We completely bullshitted the price of Caprari WITH Sampdoria just so we'd be okay with FFP. We said "here's our completely cheap player who's never played for us for 15m dw we'll pay you that back when we buy your young player" and they said sure. His price was 18m sure maybe it's high and in all honesty I had never heard of him in my life till we were interested but I guess that's what we pay for potential now days, least it ain't 50m like a certain Manchester club. It was a necessity.

07 Jul 17, 16:04
Ranocchia, Juan, Nagatomo, Silvestre, Pereira, Dodo, Vidic, Campagnaro, Medel, Ansaldi, arguably Murillo, Santon and D'Ambrosio. Only defender who has done well is Miranda. And even he's been inconsistent.

Il Drago
07 Jul 17, 16:43

M.Adnan
07 Jul 17, 17:10
I don't know why you guys are mixing Skriniar with the failed defenders that we've had in the past years. The rubbish that we've bought before were all Ausilio's rubbish piece of business with the approval of rubbish managers. This time there are Sabatini and Spalletti added into the equation. No need to be so pessimistic (understandable though).

Il Drago
07 Jul 17, 17:15

Maybe he chose it because of Skrtel. He has said in the past Skrtel is his role model. Slovaks even consider him Skrtel's heir due to their similar playing style.

Welcome to Inter.

According to his agent, we paid 23M for him, thus making him the most expensive footballer in the history of Slovak football. He also revealed that Atletico Madrid were interested but couldn't place their bid (20+) due to their transfer ban.

(sport.sk)

CafeCordoba
07 Jul 17, 17:35
What the fuck? Surely we did not pay 23m€ in cash + Caprari for him? Did we?

Guz
07 Jul 17, 17:44
We paid 23M for Skriniar, they paid 15 for Caprari.
Basically, we paid Caprari+8.

At least that's what his agent says.

connorconnor12
07 Jul 17, 19:03
Transfermarkt.com says otherwise... Apparently Skriniar costed 30m and Caprari was 15m. Thus our net cash outlay was 15m which isn't terrible considering Caprari isn't worth 15m

Transfermarkt.com is not and will never be a reliable source. Seems like the valuation on Caprari and therefore the amount payed for Skriniar is to screw the FFP.

JJM

we paid 25mil and no other player was involved in this deal directly says one of the agents that represents Skriniar...for the book purposes

Vojtek, agenzia Stars&Friends: "Per Skriniar 25 milioni il giusto prezzo. Nessun altro giocatore nell'affare"

Ag Skriniar: "Il nuovo tecnico dell'Inter, Luciano Spalletti, lo ha preferito a Rudiger della Roma"

His agent says that Luciano S preffered Milan Š to Rudiger!He also says we basically paid 8mil+Caprari for him...

As I've said the deal wasn't horrible, we got out of a bad situation and got a guy with good potential (apparently) in a position we need reinforcements in. I'd never heard of the guy, but as stated by others before Sabatini/Spalleti know there defenders. Good luck dude!

Well of course he isn't going to come out and say "here's round to get FFP" It's been obvious that's what this deal been about but only an idiot would come out and say ut

Inter7
08 Jul 17, 03:00
Milan Škriniar, the new Inter Milan defender spoke with Sport.sk about his number, which will be 37, the same number he had with Sampdoria:

“I’m glad it was available at Inter. I chose it because it is linked to my experience at Zilina, 37 has been worn by Martin Skrtel and Norbert Gyomber. Skrtel is one of my idols and this has played an important role.”

Škriniar then spoke about the San Siro, where he visited it twice last season against both Milan clubs: “I played there when we challenged Inter and Milan, I believe that I will experience the same feelings with the Nerazzurri shirt. San Siro is a beautiful stadium, there are 80 thousand people and this says it all.”

The 21 year old is convinced that he won’t crack under pressure, especially when playing in such an important environment: “Inter could’ve bought anyone, having large financial resources, but they chose me and I’m happy. I will try to do everything possible to repay their confidence, especially trying to always be in shape because if you’re not you can not do much. I wore this shirt for the first time and my confidence grew. I know there will be pressure because we are talking about Inter, but the pressure is always there. Maybe when I get among my new teammates I will feel a bit different, but I’m looking forward to it. When I was in Milan a few days ago I immediately had a good feeling.”

Skriniar also claimed that he doesn’t fear the big competition that awaits him: “I know I have to deal with the fact that there are so many big names in the squad. But the choice is up to the manager, and above all how I will act in training. But I would be very happy if I could find space, that would be great. I’d be happy to play as soon as possible, I am ready to take the first opportunity.”

Milan then spoke about hisSampdoria farewell: “They wished me all the luck. From this point of view I’m sorry to leave Samp, I met wonderful people who have helped me a lot, especially in the locker room. But when you go to Inter, you can not be sad: you’re in a big European club and you’re facing a new challenge.”

When asked, What are your future goals, here’s how the Slovak replied:

“In the near future, try to fit into the first team, but above all, to stay well physically, I want to work hard to convince Luciano Spalletti and repay the confidence that has been shown to have in me deciding to take me at Inter.”

This is true. Today watching Rano Naga or Biabiany i realized how problematic this team still is. Ok, this players will not play from start. But like i already said in the other thread, they are only useless for the ambient. I prefer to see a Miangue over Nagatomo or some other good Primavera player over Biabiany. At last they can learn something from the bigs like Valero or Miranda. But whats the point to have this unmotivate mediocre players? They bring only negativity in our ambient. There is no competition between the first team and half of our bench. Im sure that a Kondogbia would improve if there are more players fighting for a starter place. Or imagine if we had a good experienced CB like Miranda instead of Rannochia. Our defenders would learn something more.
Whats the good thing to have Nagatomo? Nothing! Immagine a young player would sign for Inter. Imagine what impression he will get from our club watching this garbage players. He will start to dont care anymore like them or leave the club, thats the truth.
Its also why our mentality is still the same in this years. We need more inteligente players and less unmotivated idiots.

I have a feeling that this guy will be one of Sabatini's usual hit signings. Buy some unkown talent for cheap and turn him into a 50m worth of player. I'm glad that it's a defender because only Interisti know how badly we need it specially with Miranda's age.

So much better than a Pepe-like signing.

M.Adnan
25 Jul 17, 12:58
True. This is could go either way: Manolas or Ranocchia.

But let's be realistic. At worst case, what's the loss really? Caprari will never have a future at Inter anyway and we've paid 11m. This isn't like paying 30m in cash for some unproven bench warmer from Brazil. Skriniar's already had a full first team season with a mid-table Italian club and he's going straight into our starting line up. It's worth the try.

There was a moment in the second half against Lyon when he clattered an opponent over the half way line. It was a professional foul committed to prevent the start of an attacking move. When I saw it, I laughed but at the same time I was pleased because it showed his on field awareness. Rather than letting the move start and attempting to deal with it closer to Handanovic, he stopped the move dead in its tracks. The other thing that surprised me was his height and imposing stature. I really hope he develops into a defender that has longevity and on whom we can rely on in the future.

I agree it's too early to jump on the hype train, however, as a fan, it's hard not to be excited by what he's been showing this pre-season.
He looks solid on both aerial and ground duel. He's proficient on the ball, composed beyond his age, and has an eye for penetrative passes. Let's see if he can steadily develop in this club, which many have failed, then he will be our main central defender for years to come (or at least sold for good money).

If I understood correctly, Samp paid 15 for Caprari (that's how we got out of FFP trouble), we paid 23 for Skriniar, so actually he cost us 8 million. A bargain...

Y&h
29 Jul 17, 11:50
Here's something I wrote when we were officially linked with him but chose not to post back in the rumors sub-forum.

Call it laziness or a lack of interest to argue with people.



Skrinair is quality and I can see why Sampdoria want to capitalize on him with a high transfer demand.

The kid has potential and promising versatility that could be used in a defensive midfielder role in the future but that requires polishing & time which leads me to understand his apprehension, along with his agent, on a move right now where playing time isn't guaranteed after a positive first year at Sampdoria.

When I was following Crisetig’s progress, I noticed Skriniar during the agonizingly boring Crotone - Sampdoria game and the guy seemed very composed most of the time.

I also decided to rewatch some of Sampdoria’s game last season like the ones against Fiorentina and Milan as well as the game where Brozovic made an ass of himself with that handball & penalty in the last 6 minutes.

Despite having a good game against us, Skriniar was partially at fault for our first goal but so was Dodo who failed to close down a cross Milan couldn't clear but we'll get into that later.

He's a tough guy with a vocal presence that calls out his team mates when they don't listen to him but I presume that would change in a new environment with older privileged players (Nagatomo) who hopefully will leave in the upcoming weeks.

There’s a moment where he closed down D'Ambrosio and pointed to his buddy to follow Eder or someone & when they ignored him & strolled instead he barked at their ass after our guy crossed the ball... miserably as you'd expect.

He has the tendency to look behind his shoulder at the "off the ball" player.

He intercepts crosses by sliding in but has a noticeable apprehension with his headers, not at Ranocchia’s level but it requires some observation by the coaching staff. He’s usually the advanced left CB in a zonal defense. He likes to close down forwards and rarely dives into tackles when he’s one-on-one but at the same time isn’t afraid of a challenge or throwing himself on the line.

Another moment that grabbed my attention was when he tussled with D'Ambrosio for the ball near the corner flag and frankly he showed character that riled up the Meazza crowd.

His left foot is strong and his right one is good when delivering a long pass as he has the tendency to switch the ball to wide areas and particularly the fullback on the other flank.

Skriniar's passing is also deliberately paced between short & risky passes which may expose him to an opponent’s pressure as he likes to extract the ball from the back by himself if the team is not helping him out.

I think his sensibilities and traits will elevate some of the pressure from our midfielders during the build up phase but that requires a solid reinforcement at the leftback position as this guy will struggle next to players with the quality of Dodo next to him.

I predicted that we’d go after him when I sensed that he’s the typical Sabatini “off the radar” signing that Roma would make and there's a part of me that believes they would have done that if he remained one more season in Sampdoria on the condition that he develops well, a sentiment that I hope happens with Inter if this deal goes through.



I haven't seen any of the preseason games properly aside from the first half of the Schalke game on a lousy stream that I turned off but I'm glad that he's showing good signs that will hopefully continue into the actual season.

M.Adnan
29 Jul 17, 12:23
Good insight on Skriniar there, Y&H.

The guy's defensive game seems to me like a mixture of Walter Samuel and Lucio in one player. I think with the right environment, soon we'll have a 40m worth of defender in our starting defense line.

Skriniar is one of the reasons why I haven't criticized Sabatini's lack of transfers activity so far as much as the others here. He's also a reason why I've never cared to make a single post about skipping Bonucci. Getting a new young CB like Skriniar was my absolute top priority since last summer and it's been accomplished in early pre-season. Next priorities seem to be on their way soon (hopefully).

I'm liking him a lot, particularly his urgency when he judiciously moves wide to catch an opponent. The area between the CBs and FBs has been a problem for years, and he doesn't hesitate to quickly close in on a ballholder wide of the goalpost. Spaletti seems to be drilling the MFs to do substantial defensive work in those situations, good signs that this is happening systematically.

I can see him being suspended a few times throughout the season, but can't blame him for that.

Tbey looked good because of their pace and athleticism. When it came down to it their positioning let them down, they're also very bad at timing tackles and interceptions. This seems to be Skriniar's strongest point though. He knows where and how to stand, when to go for a tackle and he has strength to compensate for all the athleticism and speed he lacks. He's no mettesacker though, he has decent speed as he showee against ribery. He reads the game well and is confident on the ball, great defender.

To be fair, players like Murillo, Jesus and Ranocchia came in Inter's worst period. We never know how they could have developed in a healthy and stable environment with the right coaches. Remember that even Ranocchia was a good player with Bonucci during their Sampdoria time. Inter could be the culprit behind their lack of development.

yeah but still, he was bad in a fairly good environment. so the whole "it's Inter's environment fault" thing is questionable. and even at hull city, he was good the first months but it didn't end the best way.

the first years of a career are less important under this point of view: what's the pressure in a club like bari? what's the pressure when nobody knows who your are and there are no particular expectations around you?

even at Inter, the first 2-3 months, he wasn't bad. then the pressure got the best of him.

for his own good, he should go as far away as possible from Italy and pressure.

the one and only way not to have these players is not to buy them in the first place.

He certainly has qualities. In every duel, I am so calm as I knew he would win. A feeling of being secure is there, no doubt. Nevertheless, in few pre-seasons games thus far, Chelsea and Bayern attackers were seriously underperforming and we will have a better judgment when the season starts. Weak team counter-attacks would test his concentration while Rube and Napoli organized attacks would give us a more accurate understanding of his tactical awareness.

He looks to be so so strong, fast, good in both ground tackles aswell as aerial duels with the warrior attacking attitude in every duel im in love with him so far.

I KNOW its only friendlies and all that and far to early to tell and im trying to tell myself that to not get to let down but also cause its true, the true battelfield starts from next week and there is where he needs to dominate, but we can atleast agree on that the signs looks very promising to say the least with this guy.

Also, this guy has been unbelievable in pre-season. Might be the most impressive buy we've made in a long, long time. Absolutely flawless, BEAST in both the defensive and offensive game. But even bigger though is mentality. The fuck. This guy is like a damn veteran. I don't know if you guys saw it or not, but there was a play in the first half yesterday where dalbert did a usual fuck up that went for a corner, after which Skrinar came over to him to console him/tell him to relax etc. Like seriously?

Great player.

thatdude
13 Aug 17, 13:20
Skriniar was nervous his first friendly in the mountains so he probably knew how Dalbert felt. Great to see we have a potentially great CB pairing.

I'll just remain cautiously optimistic for the time being. I don't want to crown him yet because he needs to prove it over the course of season, but if I said I wasn't excited I would be lying.

I trust him, Never ever once in my life in see young defender good as him..

He will make some mistakes but he is so young, knows how to play serie a defense and looks committed, able, strong and with great instincts on the pitch. I think he will do very well. Will prove to be an excellent signing by the end of the year.

Skriniar: ‘Schick a top player’
By Football Italia staff

Milan Skriniar calls Patrik Schick “a top player” and insists “it’s not my fault Inter paid so much for me".

The Slovakian centre-back joined the Nerazzurri for a reported €18m earlier this summer, and it’s reported Schick could follow him from Sampdoria.

“I heard from him [Schick] a few days ago, he told me he’s all fine now,” Skriniar told Premium Sport, referring to the heart condition which saw his former teammate fail his Juventus medical.

“Let’s see what happens, even he still doesn’t know his future. There are so many teams following him, not just Inter.

“In my opinion he’s a top player, as he’s already shown at Samp. He makes the difference on the pitch.

“Did Inter pay too much for me? It’s not my fault if Inter paid so much for me, I’m very happy here and I’m grateful for the affection of the fans.

“My objective is to play well and help the team.”

Serie A gets underway this weekend, and Skriniar feels he and his teammates are well-prepared to start the season.

“The league is a different thing compared to friendlies. We’ve had good results so far, but now we need to focus on Sunday.

“I’m happy to start at San Siro in an Inter shirt. In my opinion we’ve improved game-on-game, but now the important thing will be to win against Fiorentina. We want to start the season well for the fans.

“Our objective is to get into the Champions League, Inter need to get back to playing there. I think we have a good squad made up of great lads.

“In China, against Bayern [Munich] and Chelsea we showed we can play our way against the best in the world.

“Joao Miranda? He has great experience and he’s helped me understand when I didn’t understand straight away. Playing with him is easy.”

Team mates talk to each other. This clearly suggests that Schick hasn't even decided where he wants to go. Most likely he is waiting for a specific team to meet Doria's ask. I am doubtful that we will get him... maybe on the last day if we are his best option.

Love this guy...top notch buy by Sabatini. I think he missed one battle in the air which to be fair was in midfield with the opponent way before him to the ball. Excellent the whole game. Hope he keeps it up and makes us forget the defence for some time.

Yeah that was a laughable accusation. It's more of a smarter business and investment than comparing two players at different stages of their careers. Criticism towards letting Bonucci go to Milan was overly harsh by the majority of posters here.

To be fair, Murillo might have developed into something else if it wasn't for Mancini's shitty time here and the horrendous season following him. We really never know.

he is amazing so far! hopefully he doesnt fuck up.

like i said in some other thread, with the newest additions like skriniar, dalbert and eventually cancelo, we have made a massive upgrade in defence... more quality and more strength.

he is also pretty young for his role. him and miranda is a great combo :thumbsup:

He's very good. Still not THAT good, Samuel imho was the best defender EVER, and I mean ever.

Anyways, great signing. The guy has sense of position and personality, he will do great things.

How great he will become, that depends on him. But he has what it takes to become LGI material.

GIGANTIC, CHARISMA AND PUSHING BACK EVERYTHING.
THE NERAZZURRI ARE CRAZY ABOUT... MILAN.

The Slovak defender is stupendous for his personality. Already deactivated Simone.

A good giant, one that stands at 188 cm tall and if you meet him on the streets, he is kind and gentle… basically the opposite of that his physicality suggests. But if you cross him on the field, you would wonder how you could get around him. Milan Skriniar is conquering Inter and the city of Milan each and every day. Just ask his teammates about what he is like as a person. A hard and precise worker, a very meticulous person, one that always treat those that work at Appiano Gentile with kindness and respect. Skriniar comes from a family who taught him the highest values of life. He has been very well received by all at Inter and the first two players that he gets close to are Samir Handanovic and Ivan Perisic.

What remains imprinted in the eyes of all are his tactical and technical progress. Against Fiorentina, it was a delicate evening seeing how it was a season opener and his debut at the San Siro, in which he shared the responsibility with Joao Miranda in dealing with Giovanni Simeone. And the Slovak came out well, with a performance that was more than positive. The same thought was shared and supported by data collected by Opta. In fact, Skriniar was the best player in Serie A when it comes to defensive rejections. He works like this…just imagine the children kicking the ball against a wall, Srkiniar was that ball and Stefano Pioli’s players were the children.

He has the capability to stay focused throughout a long encounter, it is like in his head, everything is perfectly connected. Skriniar is the best defensive player of the first matchday of the season together with Regini of Sampdoria and Angella of Udinese. he is also unbeatable in the air as he won all four of the battles in the air against the Fiorentina players. We have not mentioned how he can anticipate before anyone else in order to put himself in an advantageous position to win the ball back. These things mentioned above seem to make him the perfect player. No, the reality is that he knows he will have to keep working, again and again. And it is no problem to him because he is ready to improve at Inter.

No one paid Skriniar 30mil...more like 23mil and we sold Caprari to Samp for 15mil...

We don't need man who are total dick heads here...Bonucci,he is smth short of a sociopath...ask D.Alves

Skriniar is 22,Bonucci is 30...

we were looking long term here...

looking in to tomorrow and the day after that is also important,on the short run we can't do much tbh

Still too early though. He has been outstanding so far but its only beginning.

Murillo was great in the beginning as well, but then started to make stupid errors and became inconsistent. We should wait and see, the season is long and we are yet to face difficult opponents.

Skriniar is young for his role though, lets hope he continues to develope. He is in the right path to become a top defender.

Murillo lacks awareness, just as JJ. Skriniar has both awareness and physicality, which Murillo and JJ were showing when they looked good.

He's also surprisingly good at distributing the ball from deep (probably because he was playing in midfield before IIRC)

I thought he was the greatest defender since Il Muro himself, but he kinda was shaky today. Hope it's just the fact it's one of the biggest matches of the season. He was overall very solid, though!

M.Adnan
26 Aug 17, 23:23
That's how you improve and develop. You make mistakes and learn from them. The immense talent is clearly there. He's a had solid game despite his mistake on Roma's goal. He didn't collapse or lose his confidence like many other failures at Inter have done.

Remember, we're talking about a 22 years old defender playing at the Olimpico.

26 Aug 17, 23:34
you guys are just fanboys and biased as fuck, just check murillos thread when he started, we hyped him as the next big thing next maicon that can play cb and whatnot. Skriniar is the same thing, 2 passes to the midfield and 1 clearence and he is better than bonucci.

I have to repeat myself. We don't really know how Murillo would've developed in a better environment. It could be that being managed by a fucktard like Mancini and in Inter's unstable and horrible state when Murillo was here have damaged his development. We just don't know and we can't compare him to Skriniar.

For Skriniar, he's in a more stable Inter and managed by Spalletti who's easily one of the top 5 Italian managers in the world right now. It's incomparable to Murillo's time with clueless Mancini and the 78 mediocre coaches who have succeeded him.

Maybe, but Inter (and Mancini) have the potential to destroy his career if not managed properly, and all his awareness and IQ wouldn't mean shit. If Mancini's here then he'd probably bench him for Medel after 5 games and fuck up his confidence. Then after 3 months of eating the bench he'll start him against Milan just destroy his confidence even more and then place him on the transfers list.
