    I am glad I am not the only one who would rather have (Lautaro, Politano, Candreva, Perisic, Lazaro) over (Ronaldo, Dybala, Cuadrado, Mandzukic, Bernadeschi, Douglas Costa, Higuain).

    Yup, and if they end up with no new striker and Higuain staying he can have the number back, its not an issue.

    Out of those players you’re naming, I only see Ronaldo in Icardis position, given the fact that Juve wants to get rid of Higuain.
    What do Berna and Douglas Costa, Cuadrado have anything in common with Icardis position?
    Or we just naming players now to fit our narrative?
    It has to do with the amount of forwards. I don't think Juve have set in stone their system given they have a new coach. And even in a case CR7 is the only forward in Icardi's position, are they in dire need of Icardi? No, because CR7 will be a starter. They can get another backup for him easily. Icardi is luxury backup for CR7. Juve is not pushing hard for Icardi because they don't really need him.

    Edit. They can sign Kean to be the backup.

    Hey, I think we can all accept your point. We just need to look the matter more objectively. Juve also have their own concerns.

    Honestly Juve's concerns are non-existing compared to Inter's ones when it comes to forwards.

    Agree, Juve have more players who can play as CF. Inter need more urgently more strikers. My point was just to look the matter from more objective point of view.

    Definitely.
    My point was, the way they left the number 9 unassigned, was their first crack of tipping the hand that they want Icardi.
    How many forwards they have is just a universal knowledge. Like I said, from those players, the only one better then Icardi at CF is CR7. He named some players that have nothing to do with Icardis position, yet accusing me of believing whatever fits my narrative.

    The idea is that they don't have to buy him this window. They're more than ok in the attacking department and they could just wait one more season and get Icardi for peanuts.
    They're not in a hurry.

    And I believed that more, until this morning when they left the 9 unassigned. That’s all. I’ve said before that Juve doesn’t need Icardi.
    It just caught me by surprise they’d do that with the number this early.

    And Barca don't need Neymar or even Greizmann. It's a matter of perspective. Ronaldo is not a #9 in any system, 9 times out of 10 he will drift wide in order for another decoy #9 to take his place (Benz, Silva or Mandzukic).

    What's the fall out if we refuse Juve's measly offer and keep Icardi until winter mercato or next summer? Do we need to sell him this mercato? Or is FIF just overreacting?

    Usually teams don't spend much in January; that's the time for quick fix. So if no team buy Icardi now, less likely they would do it later unless there is an injury crisis or something.

    Next summer is even worse. He has one year left in his contract i.e. 6 month more to be Bosman available. We are lucky if we would get 20m for him.

    What's that say about Icardi if hes willing to stay on the bench to prove a fuckin point? His salary wont increase, but his agent and lawyers fees surely will.

    Its imporbable that Icardi or any potential suitors will let Icardi go 2 years without football. That's a career ending move. If its a choice between him riding the bench for 2 years and 40M from Juve, I'll go with the former. Icardi has his career to think about. Unless we get a suitable offer he will go without football for months. I think we have more leverage here.

    And what if it's a message for higuain rather than tipping their hand? and wait, it does not matter if they tip their hand. Everybody knows they want icardi.

    The issue is, they don't need him urgently. They also have money like crazy. Sarri has literally managed to do more with less. He played and converted mertens to a false 9 and racked up 90+ points like that. They do not need icardi.

    We have a single CF who is inexperienced. We have a coach whining for a single player who cost 85M. And we don't have money. We've also expelled Icardi from the team and multiple times, in no uncertain terms, have we said icardi is no longer part of the team.

    How can you look at these scenarios and say we have leverage is beyond me.....but like I said, carry on.

    If he stays into the season and we make him train separately etc, he will simply go to CAS and get the contract terminated.

    I'm sorry buddy, but where did i say we have leverage?
    I respect you and always read what you have to say, but i think you're responding to me based on some other stuff that you and me disagree, like yesterday when you told me to take a chill pill, cuz i asked you to clarify how do you know Conte is in for a rude awakening. Seems like you took that more personal and to the heart then it was really intended.

    Anyways, i Never said that the we have leverage. I just said, maybe this was a slip up from juve.
    Either way, if this is about Higuain, which in that case, they're pulling and Inter move here with showing everyone that he's not part of their plans, which y'all been condemning Inter and Marotta by doing that with Icardi, devaluation, even though Inter did it much more vocally, nonetheless the message still is the same, or tipping their hand that they really want Icardi, to which i only said, we maybe gained some of that advantage back, at least a little.
    I'm not disagreeing with you with the rest.

    But they are not shutting him out. Higuain is in a plane with the team. Higuain is not being sold because of off-pitch issues, he's been sold/loaned because he's shit for Juve.

    Higuain will be 32 years old and was shifted since last season when they got ronaldo. Icardi just turned 26 this year. One is for on the field performance. The other is for ....wait, we don't really know. Juve is just trying to ensure higuain doesn't affect their p&l too much (hence carefully crafted loans to milan & chelsea last season). We HAVE to sell Icardi for money or else our other mercato moves are messed up.

    The situations are in no way comparable.
