Even though he made his debut against Frankfurt, I still qualify him as a youth player. But I think that he could be a regular first team player next year. Played an amazing U17 European Championship tournament and looks like the real deal. Amazing free kick specialist!

I'd be willing to bet he'd perform better than Vecino, Gagliardini, Mario and Valero at least. And we have to field one of those players since we have no one else.

At the very least he'd actually be trying.

The yaos referred to a 17 y/o getting regular play time at Inter. This is Inter we’re talking about. No matter how good they are they will never play.

Plusvalencia. It's plusvalenza we make by selling talents to Valencia.

^ I know very little about this kid but Esposito already made his first team debut in the Europa League last season. I don't know whether he'll play in Berretti or Primavera next season but I think there's a good chance he'll be at preseason with the first team.

highlights of the final. the first two goals were fairly easy (but you have to be in the right place), the third is a "panenka". also to highlight that stankovic's son saved a penalty at the 87' minute, when the score was 1-3.

When a youth player is so good, every single day he spends at youth level is IMHO a waste of time.

He must play in a professional team now, if it's deemed it's too soon for Inter then on loan somewhere. Even fucking serie c would be better than keep scoring against kids his age. He can't learn anything else at that level.

That is true, but rushing him can also have negative effect. Its double edged sword.

This is one of the issues with serie a. We dont have B teams. So transition from youth to senior level is twice as hard.

Let him train with the first team, play him in the Primavera and start him in the Coppa. Every day playing against Skriniar, de Vrij and Godin will make every player better. And when he is 18 years old and not good enough to get regular playing time at Inter just loan him to a club which is good in developing young players.

I never understand why Inter is not working with a Dutch club for example which we all know let youngsters play if they are good enough. A club like Sparta in the first division, or clubs like Twente or Groningen in the Eredivisie. Alot of clubs would be glad to work together with a big club like Inter and get some players on loan because they don’t have alot of money.

Shock offer from PSG for Sebastiano Esposito!
https://static1.squarespace.com/static/593614a03e00beb2f0d520ad/5936401cb3db2b83532d06b1/5d1377ca90166700010f4feb/1561557074328/gettyimages-1151056827.jpg?format=2500w


Inter have no intention of letting go Sebastiano Esposito. The brightest jewel of the Nerazzurri’s youth academy and he has been courted by major clubs in Europe over these last five weeks. Scouts from Dortmund, Atletico Madrid and Manchester City have seen Esposito live on several occasions, even during U-17 European championship and Primavera finals.

Strongest interest is coming from Liverpool and Manchester United which have been following him for over a year and a half. The Italian talent received a shock proposal with many zeros from Paris Saint Germain: incredible figure for a boy who will only turn 17 soon.

For this reason, Inter immediate acted and will soon lock him up with a new contract until 2022. A minor cannot sign contract for more than three years.

https://static1.squarespace.com/static/593614a03e00beb2f0d520ad/5936401cb3db2b83532d06b1/5d18b9f404ddd80001d1f1da/1561901667626/gettyimages-1130203849.jpg?format=2500w

Esposito will start new season next week at training camp in Lugano with Conte and the rest of his teammates. He will look to learn much from the coaching staff and his peers before Conte making a decision on what to do with him.

https://tmssl.akamaized.net//images/foto/normal/sebastiano-esposito-italia-u17-1557500014-22205.jpg

In order for the Nerazzurri to push back interest with great resistance, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, Inter have renewed the player’s contract until 2022.

04 Aug 19, 17:08
Damn, you can see the talent. He wasn't phased even playing against a pair of big boys like Vertonghen and Sanchez, and mamma mia that assist.

Very impressive ICC from him, and although I sincerely hope we'll be watching something like Dzeko/Lukaku-Lautaro next week against Valencia, I think he's definitely done enough to earn him a place in Conte's considerations. At the very least, I'm expecting him to be in the primavera for most of the season, but be our 5th/6th choice if injuries happen.

Give him new contract with release clause of 150m, give him occasional chance in the first team this year, to be a starter in 2-3 years.

Why dont we for once try another method regarding primavera strikers? Through the years we had young strikers but we opted for two options: either send them on loan/sell them with a buy back option, like Bonazzolli... or keep then as the very last option for the striker position, like we did with Pinamonti. I’m sure both have the potential but we failed at handling them.

Why dont we try another method? Let’s just play him regularly, let’s risk it all. With Perisic almost gone, we have a Lukaku-Martinez duo up front, Sebastiano should be the first option when either of them are tired/injured or when we are winning comfortably. And for every now and then he starts, especially in easy games or Coppa games. It worked with players like Cutrone, Rashford, Kean, etc.

Love the little Milito move he pulled on the first goal. That’s the type of stuff you want to see a young player trying in a practice match because they will get better at it and actually be able to apply it in a top level match.

Super impressive from this kid. It seems like our struggles to land Lukaku will benefit us long term as this kid as clearly benefited from playing all these pre-season games. Now I'm a huge fan of Dybala and would love to see him curling the ball into the net in our colours, but it's pretty obvious that this kid's path to first team football cannot be impeded too much. I'm not saying he needs to play regular football, but he cannot sit on the sideline all season. Secondly, if we do plan on sending him out on loan in the future it needs to be to a club who will play him, and just as importantly he needs to qualify as a club trained player for Uefa purposes prior to that happening.

I get what Batman is saying, but there is a way to avoid the Bonazzoli situation. We sent him to Samp when they had players like Quags and Muriel there. He was never going to get the football needed to develop properly, and he lost confidence. Likewise there is way to play a kid more than Pinamonti without him being a regular. The goal should be something like 500 minutes in serie A and all the copa games

It could also be a disaster. One major injury and we could compromise our season - that's the problem. With 100mil or so in CL revenue on the line it's a risk we cant really afford to take. Him being first sub or something is workable but we need depth in the squad beyond that

The fans there are massively unhappy with their window as it is. Also, they dont need the commercial cover as badly as we do. It's like 25 or 30% of our revenue on the line with CL football - what is it for United? 15%? They can spend a huge amount every summer without worrying about CL - we cant.

Calm your tits, it was a friendly with what, a Serie D team? That`s probably weaker than playing against our Primavera... He seems to make the proper decisions and playing for the team. I read that our club considers him to be the biggest talent coming from Primavera since Balotelli.

Because they are the richest club in the world when it comes to revenues? They don`t depend on UCL football, while their fanbase seem to be unhappy. Esposito deserves more than just warming the bench here, I would loan him to Serie B team where he could play regularly. Up to Conte, I guess.

I remember asking Bluenine once about when was the last time we loaned a talented player and brought him back to be a starter when there were rumors about Karamoah's loan to Bordeau. Look how it ended. So loaning talented players is a very bad idea especially at Inter.

He is already forcing the issue imo. He hasnt looked out of place in the pre-season even though he barely cast a shadow a few months earlier when he debuted vs Frankfurt. I think the days of tossing away promising youth players for quick-fix veterans is over.

Conte wants Esposito as 4th striker. Move thread to PLAYERS.

RickyMaravilla'sRightFoot
13 Aug 19, 15:01
Well I'd normally be hesitant about forecasting the second coming, but the best usually find a way through the hype anyway. He's been hugely impressive since training with the first team and as another poster pointed out-- hasn't looked out of place at all.
Conte seems quite taken with him so I wouldn't be too surprised to see his name on the call up sheet throughout the season. I don't think we can count on him; that just isn't fair, so we'll need to carry at least 3 strong forwards with more experience playing at the senior level.
However, if Esposito can find his way onto the pitch in a few situations this season and put up something like 5ish goals while training with the big boys, I don't see that as anything but a massive success for the kid.

If Dzeko doesn't arrive before then, then it makes sense. We'll probably see Lukaku-Esposito for 60, then Lautaro in for Romelu for the last 30 minutes.

He had a good pre-season, and Lecce is one of those games where he might have seen game time anyway.

Why wouldn't he? Just given him the minutes Nainnggolan got and I have no doubt he will score at least 10 goals this season. Actually, my main goal this season is to watch these kids (Esposito, Sensi, Barella, Pirola, etc) play and develop and not winning a trophy. Conte can and should do this.

How many matches Gabigol has played? Or Ciao Mario lately? Vecino is quite reliable midfielder after all and he simply manages to contribute when it matters (Lazio, Spurs, Milan, Empoli). Wouldn't put Vecino in the same category as banter-era players.

Esposito is fine as 4th forward, but not 3rd. We need a real player as 3rd forward. Esposito can get the odd minutes here and there, he shouldn't be the one we rely on when starter injures himself for a month. Alone training and being part of such a squad with Conte leading the pack will help Esposito tremendously.

A few months ago, he was a U17 player for Inter, not even primavera. He still plays for Italy U17, not even U19 or the Azzurrini. Thats how young and raw he is.

I hope he gets some minutes in Coppa this season, but apart from that, he should mainly play in the primavera. Expecting him to make any kind of impact in Serie A this season is unreasonable even for someone of his great potential.

Yeah I pretty much agree with this line of reasoning, however I also don’t want to put a cap on him. Give him a couple of cameo appearances in the league and see if he’s a duck to water. I think his preseason deserves a 15 minute cameo against Lecce if Lautaro or Lukaku can’t go 90 minutes. What if he comes on and scores? It could change his life.

On the whole I think sometimes Italy is too protective of talents. There will never be a Joao Felix or Mbappe because of that mentality, and no I’m not comparing Esposito to those players before anyone gets out of hand.

Kakaroto

brehme1989
20 Aug 19, 13:50
How many talents of that sort in general have emerged though? Most get to the first team after they turn 20.

I guess you will want to include some over hyped ones as well, but in the past 5 years the only ones that qualify imo are:
Kylian Mbappe
Joao Felix
Leroy Sane (became a starter at 19 iirc)
Luka Jovic (just before he turned 20)
Federico Chiesa
Ousmane Dembele
Kai Havertz and the rest of the Leverkusen crew
Houssem Aouar
The Ajax boys
Trent Alexander-Arnold
Gianluigi Donnarumma

Not everyone deserves to be in here if we're talking about Mbappe/Felix levels. And most of these were not playing for contenders. Some transferred to contenders as a result of their obvious talent.
But it feels like the German and French leagues are better suited for this, whilst Italy can still produce a starlet or two.

Spain still remains the best imo but their talents don't see much action until they turn 20. In Italy there's even greater lag but I think that's going to change in the near future.

Spanish 2nd division :oblivious: He is playing for Deportivo de La Coruña. The operation is loan with obligation to buy in the event of promotion to La Liga: a possible objective given last year they only lost the playoff final against Mallorca. The obligation will cost €1.5m.

on-topic: GdS writes that Esposito could start against Lecce. The will of Conte and that of management is to protect this jewel. The idea is to have him in training with the first team for the entire season but they will let him grow by playing for Inter Primavera.

Puma
17 Oct 19, 01:05
I do not have high expectations where Esposito is concerned and that is not because I think he is a shit player. It is more to do with his age and having realistic expectations. I do not expect him to go out and score a goal every second game. At this stage in his career, simply getting game time and playing is a development.

Perhaps we can not afford to give up a starting position just so a player can learn the ropes but we hardly have a choice of strikers and we may end up playing him because other than Politano, we do not have an alternative. However, the main reason he would be selected is that we need him rather than playing him for minutes. Experience will follow from playing.

The one thing that I am certain about is that Esposito will play and give his all for however long he is on the pitch and I would be happy if he managed to simply linkup and assist his strike partner and teammates rather than placing high expectations on his young shoulders.

What a great feeling it must be for Esposito when the first team is counting on you. I'm sure that he'll do well

Universe
17 Oct 19, 06:00
It's near impossible to predict how Esposito will end up.

In the past 5 years we've had the likes of Puscas, Ze Turbo, Bonazzoli, Camara, Andy Polo (lol), Colidio, Odegaard, Pinamonti, Merola etc. Only Zaniolo and Radu have been able to establish themselves as Serie A players so early in their careers.

You have to go further back to find more graduates like Biraghi, Duncan, Benassi and Mbaye who have carved out decent careers for themselves at the top flight level. The common denominator is that absolutely none of them developed into first-team players wearing our shirt.

Naturally I'm hoping Esposito becomes a prodigious, generational talent, but the odds are always against him. It's unfortunate he'll miss out on the U17 WC because I think that would've been better for him instead of warming our bench. I'll be surprised if he plays any minutes at all given no further injuries to our remaining 3 forwards. His staying for the first team is just a last-resort contingency plan.

I feel it would be a bit unfair towards him if, after asking to have him pulled from the under 17 team for the world cup, he didn't get significant playing time in the next 4-5 matches.

I mean, at least an hour in the next 3 matches. Otherwise, why deny him that opportunity to play the under 17 world cup? It is within our right, but still, I wouldn't like it too much.

He got his first chance vs Frankfurt and he barely cast a shadow in 30 mins. What keeps me optimistic that he is better than the scraps Uni mentioned, was that in pre-season he showed confidence, always wanted to be involved, wasnt shy to play with flair, and most importantly, he didnt let the moment shake him. He did not look out of place in any match.

Bear in my though that the frankfurt game was probably the single most shambolic disorganised game played under Spalletti. I'm a season ticket holder, I've pretty much seen them all under him and If I had to pick one, I would pick that one.

It was the only game when I've seen people not shouting at the team, but laughing sarcastically when they made a mistake. That says a lot about the performance.

Anyway, the bottom line is that I don't think we should judge him based on that one. We can hope for him to perform, but it would be unreasonable to do so if all the senior players are not there to help him out. In my opinion, he certainly didn't have the support on that night.

Esposito Became Inter’s Second Youngest Champions League Debutante Against Borussia Dortmund

Sebastiano Esposito became Inter’s youngest player to appear in a Champions League match in almost 40 years according to Opta.The youngster came off the bench in last night’s 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund aged 17-years and 113 days old. Only the legendary Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Bergomi, who played his first game in the then European Cup aged 17-years 72 days, was younger.

On top of this Esposito stat, Opta have also highlighted that Lautaro Martinez is the youngest Inter player to score in back-to-back Champions League games since 2005. Lautaro managed the feat aged 22-years 62 days whilst Obafemi Martins managed it aged 20-years 118 days.

Finally, Opta highlight that Inter conceded their least shots in the Champions League game since Opta started collecting such data back in 2003/04 as they allowed Dortmund just four shots at San Siro.

It's Lukaku => Lautaro/Sanchez, whoever is on the pitch at that particular moment but probably Lautaro first since he has seniority in the team and then whoever the fuck is left. In that particular case - Esposito. That's the way things usually are and that's the way things are at our team. Of course Conte won't make Esposito shoulder the responsibility of a crucial Champions League penalty kick being seventeen and all... doh. That's what I meant by a "dedicated penalty-kick taker", there's a pecking order and the Primavera guy is naturally at the bottom.

Too bad El Toro is a dick and didn't let Esposito take the penalty.

What if he missed? You don’t put that type of pressure on a 17 year old. I really like the kid and that we are giving him chances but let’s not get carried away or have him get carried either. Let’s hope we have a new Balotelli but one who doesn’t have shits for brains

Speaking of Kids, Calcedo started from the bench for Verona in the last 15 minutes of the match and played really well. I would have kept him and spent Lukaku's money on two midfielders.

Lukaku has 5 goals. Icardi would probably have 10 with how we are playing but not bringing a finished product striker like Lukaku would have been a bad idea. To put all the pressure on Lautaro who isn’t proven

I mean we could have taken the chance and bought Falcao or Giroud for the 1st half the season until Lautaro was ready but that would have been risky and they would have wanted big wages as well.

I've been thinking how amazing that fight was where he won the penalty. Being able to fight it out with Hummels and the other one was so fucking cool. Also had it been Lautaro or Politano, they would have dived way sooner. Were it Lukaku, he would have given up way earlier. That was insane shit.

Fabrizio Romano:


Esposito, new untouchable at Inter

Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan have finally found their new untouchable at the club—Sebastiano Esposito.

The 17-year-old has impressed everyone, especially manager Antonio Conte, with his offensive capabilities that too at such a young age.

Therefore, it is becoming increasingly clear that Conte and Inter’s hierarchy are not willing to part ways with Esposito, even on a loan deal and he will stay with the club’s first team despite having some serious competition in the attacking front.

It is believed that Conte has also made it clear to the club’s hierarchy that he does not want to see another case of 'Zaniolo' by letting the young jewel of the crow leave San Siro in any manner and therefore, no offers from any other club will be entertained in the near future.

As things stand, Inter are ready to offer Esposito a new contract which can tie him with the club beyond his current contractual obligation which is set to expire in the summer of 2022.

He should probably get the Pinamonti/Radu treatment tbh. Loan him out or sell him for some plusvalenza with a gentleman's agreement to bring him back etc.

Lukaku and Lautaro are un-benchable at the moment. Giroud is likely coming in Jan. Politano has recovered enough to make the bench. Sanchez too should be fit by the new year.

Not much room for Esposito to say the least.

Totti to sign up Inter starlet?

Roma hero-turned-agent Francesco Totti is reportedly about to make Inter striker Sebastiano Esposito his first client.

Esposito has already played three times in Serie A and twice in the Champions League, despite still being just 17.

Totti will be starting a new adventure in the next few weeks, as the head of a new football agency in conjunction with Stellar Group, and is therefore looking for clients.

Stellar Group is one of the biggest agencies in world football, with the likes of Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale and Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez currently on their books.

With that in mind, Corriere dello Sport claims the Inter starlet will become the first player represented by Totti.

The newspaper writes contacts have already been established between Totti and Esposito and that a deal could be signed off before Christmas.

However, it should not impact on the teenager’s future as Il Corriere assures he will commit to a new contract with the Nerazzurri soon.

We were out after the 1st game losing points at home against the worst team in your group gets you knocked out. We were up against Barca and Dortmund games that we lost.

We don’t have the roster to compete for both trophies and stopping Juve is all that matters

Is it a given that Esposito will be starting against Genoa? Or do you think Conte will play it "safe" and start Politano up front? Given that we have conceded each time he has come on in the last two games, Politano is not really a safe option.

Sebastiano Esposito, the 17-year-old striker, could make his full debut for Inter against Genoa on Sunday, as Lautaro Martinez is serving a one-game ban. Antonio Conte certainly believes in the player a lot, but had things gone differently in the summer, he could have been at PSG.

As today's edition of Corriere Dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com) reports, the youngster was courted by Paris Saint-Germain in the summer. In fact, the French side even offered him a 'blank' contract, allowing him to decide the salary.

Furthermore, the offered to give jobs to the closest relatives. However, per the report, Esposito quickly rejected the offer as he only had one thing in his mind: the possibility of playing for the first team and being managed by Antonio Conte.

Esposito's contract with Inter also included a lot of bonuses related to appearances, many of which have already been activated thanks to the great faith of the manager.

I would like to see what he can do if he starts as opposed to just the final minutes when we desperately need a goal. Would prefer him over Politano as he is a more natural scorer and does not play out of position.

Starting a 17 rather than playing a different formation and a guy we spent 25 million on that we are trying to sell :)

Then wonder why we are broke. I am excited for Esposito and it’s great chance against a weak team but even without players being able to play in his favorite formation Conte just won’t change!

Impressive debut. It was a well taken penalty, the lack of experience is very clear but most importantly he showed the right attitude. He ran his ass off, knows how to position himself and made some nice passes. He got tired in the end and its well understandable.

We can try to sell Politano for 25m. But potential buyers might offer 7m when they see him play. :work:
Played out quite well without changing system and I rather develop one of our promising youth prospects.

I like that he had 90 mins. This is how a club earns loyalty from a player and vice-versa. This little fuck was hounding Genoa players from the 1st minute until the 89th and made impressive runs all day. He was a huge factor in our building and sustaining of pressure. Opened loads of space for midfield support by being both direct and clever in his movements. Total package imo

On a more mundane note, I was wondering if British announcers were doing what they usually do with foreign names and anglicizing them, but the Italian broadcasters I heard yesterday pronounced his name the same way so I guess the emphasis really is on the second syllable.

The reason I mention is because there were two famous hockey playing brothers in the NHL - Phil and Tony Esposito - and the emphasis has always been on the third syllable in their name. Kinda just assumed that was the "correct" pronunciation.

brehme1989

The emphasis should be on the second syllable. EspOsito. But EsposIto is not entirely incorrect. but more rare iirc. Also, the s between the o and i should like like a z.
