Since it seems that we are seriously linked to Chivu, what about opening opening a thread on whom we have been discussing so much in the "Transfer rumour" and "Defenders for next season" threads.
Well then, what can I say about Chivu ?? He's a very good defender, who can only get better, who's kinda experienced at this age. We were once very close to him, just like we were to capturing Nesta, only for our management to snub in in the very last moment, after getting the first option on him.
He's been very injury prone since he joined Roma, and we already have injury prone players, but still, I do think that it would be a risk worth to take with the available options we have. He's kinda allrounder kinda defender, who can play well both in CB and LB positions and is very reliable. He's just recetly back from a long term injury and in the very first official match he played, he had a very good game. That shows this defender's class. He did say that he would stick with Roma when been asked about Inter, but that's what he should have said. And there was once a player named RONALDO, who snubbed Inter for Real, after just returning from a long term injury.
If Mancini and the management really wants to get him, then i do think that it's very much possible to get him. Lets just hope that Milan wouldn't get him, coz in that case: Nesta -- Chivu could do wonder for them and we will be have to add yet another player in the already long list - Nesta, Pirlo, ....
We have been rumoured to have already have booked Luisao, but can we trust him ?? I doubt so .... And not to forget Burdisso, who we already have in our team. I very much think that Burdisso deserves chance in Inter, after all, it's just his very first season. We MUST stick with him. Chivu can play in LB position, if Burdisso does well next season.
J.Zanetti ------ Cordoba ----- Kompany/Burdisso/Luisao ----- Chivu :::::::::::::::::> would be a good one for next season. (not sure about Kompany).
Lets not talk about Kompany for now, as there are other threads to discuss on that.
And just incase Cordoba's partner fails to do well, then we will already have a readymade defender in Chivu. Having players who can play in different positions' very important and Chivu will help us alot. Lets just hope that he remains injury prone IF he joins Inter.
How are we supposed to get him ?? There are many methods, I guess. Apart from $$, we can trade players like: Karagounis, Coco, Davids, Ze Maria, Cruz (if Mancini doesn't want him to be a back up striker), Vieri (if we are not planning to keep him, which I think would be good for him and Inter), Recoba (yeah..) , ....
Back to CHIVU - Yea, I want him and hope that he remains injury free !
