    The Moneyball Challenge

    I've just had an idea.

    Using transfermarkt as a price guide, the challenge is as follows; build the best possible 'New Inter' team, where no player can cost more than 15m, and you have a total transfer budget of 30m. You can sell existing players using the valuation on transfermarkt. What can we do on a budget? Is there hope for an FFP-throttled Inter squad?

    Nastasic...that's a good long-term buy imo. Fan of Fiorentina and Dortmund are we Robin?

    I'll work on mine later today, needless to say it will be something way out of the left field.

    sell/get rid - maicon, lucio, cordoba, chivu, forlan, Deki

    buy Poli, isla, gurain or mvilla and Jovetic as well as a decent young center back

    the money might not quite add up but the wage saving are more than big enough to cover the loss

    if a good offer comes for Wes than sell and buy Lucas and another 5-10 million player

    can play:

    JC
    isla, Rano, samuel, JZ
    Poli camb
    Cou Jovetic Alvarez
    Milto

    subs/res Viviano, New CB, pazzo, gurain, lucas, cast, naga etc

    this is perfectly feasiable with the money that is reported to be available and almost from just with our current means

    i think lucas should only be signed after the squad is upgraded as we need instant impact and it wint help him a greta deal to come into a losing team like we have ATM

    It's just a rough guess

    Of course you can't but this is just a nice way to see what we might be able to do and see value in players that other clubs wouldn't notice.


    Don't take this so seriously

    OUT
    Julio Cesar €18M
    Lucio €6M
    Ranocchia €15M
    Chivu €0
    Maicon €10M
    Stankovic €6.5M
    Forlan €6.5M
    Pazzini €15M
    Sneijder €30M
    Don't waste money on right-to-buy clauses for Zarate, Palombo, Guarin.

    All that added together...107......plus the 30...137M.

    And just to prove a point, I'm going to deliberately underspend.

    IN
    Rene Adler (Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Free)
    Mauricio Isla (Udinese, €12M)
    Jan Vertonghen (Ajax, €15M)
    Serdar Tasci (VfB Stuttgart, €10M)
    Andrea Poli (Sampdoria, €4M)
    Sven Bender (Borussia Dortmund, €15M)
    Giampiero Pinzi (Udinese, Free)
    Sotiris Ninis (Panathinaikos, Free)
    Clint Dempsey (Fulham, €12M)
    Tranquillo Barnetta (Bayer 04 Leverkeusen, Free)
    Giuseppe Rossi (Villareal, €25M)
    Fabio Borini (Roma, €8M)
    Ibrahim Afellay (Barcelona, €8M)
    Junior Hoilett (Blackburn, Free)
    Alexander Frei (FC Basel, Free) [I would rather have him as my back-up than Castaignos!!]

    TOTAL: 109M. +2M more spent than received. Adler is a stop-gap until Vivano picks up form again and becomes Inter ready.

    There. Totally gutted the squad and replaced it. Pretty much guaranteed to split opinion but whatever.

    Replace Alibec with Longo/Castaignos and I'm fine with it. However Sakho is a Bbilanista unfortunately..

    I decided to retroactively impose an exception - you are allowed a single marquee signing above that number, but only one. So mine would be Rossi

    In that case, the other 2 are not valid attempts?
