    Adama Fofana

    UFFICIALE - L'INTER ACQUISTA ADAMA FOFANA DAL BRESCIA

    Acquisto a sorpresa da parte dell'Inter, che ha acquistato a titolo definitivo l'attaccante ivoriano del Brescia Adama Fofana. Alto 181 centimetri per 70 chili, Fofana è una punta classe 1989. Acquistato dal Brescia nel 2007/2008, ha girovagato tra prestiti al Como, all'Ethnikos e all'Ekranas, in Lituania.



    We've bought this player, so this should go to the Players section!

    the talk in Italy is that we're using him to free up a non-EU slot or something.

    But I thought they changed that last season? It used to be 1 non-EU slot + 1 more if you sold a non-EU player abroad. But I could have SWORN they changed that last year...

    - - - Updated - - -

    for arguments sake, lets assume he IS being used to free up a non-EU slot

    That means we have an incoming non-EU player IMMEDIATELY, or next-to.
    I believe Vidic is EU, or should be having lived in England for like 8 years. M'Vila is French..

    So who could be coming in who is non-EU? We must be looking at 2 non-EU players coming in in the near future if we've signed this guy for the non-EU slot

    Adama Fofana all'Inter, la mossa è strategica: serve per...

    L'acquisto di un ivoriano classe 1989 che negli ultimi anni ha girovagato in prestito tra Grecia e Lituania ha spiazzato molti sostenitori nerazzurri. Ma in realtà dietro c'è una strategia molto chiara: l'acquisto di Adama Fofana, e la sua relativa cessione all'estero, libererà per l'Inter uno slot per gli extracomunitari. Una pratica molto diffusa e utilizzata di recente anche dalla Roma, che acquistò Babu per poi rivenderlo e liberare un posto per Gervinho.

    Just like you said browhwa, this will free us a non-eu spot like it did for Roma last year

    I could have sworn they changed that rule, though. Maybe I'm confusing it as they have changed it a few times in recent years (ie when we nearly signed hernanes). It used to be 1 non-EU + 1 if sold per season, then when we signed Coutinho it went to 1 per season outright, then it went to I THOUGHT 2 outright per season, no sale dependency.

    Anyway


    Who might these 2 non-EU players be? I had a google and its possible Vidic doesn't have an EU passport yet (if not, he should have fucking gotten one since he's been in England for so long), so we have at least 1 more incoming.

    WHO?

    Adama Fofana.


    Why hasn't he played since 2012?
    He didn't have Raiola as his agent.

    How does this free up a non-EU spot?
    After selling him, it opens a space for a new transfer.

    What were Inter thinking??
    Buying a non-eu player for the future.

    can we focus speculation on who this non-EU guy incoming might be? Forget Fofana, it's clear that we'd be looking to offload him just to free up a slot, the question is who we will get in his place.

    Assuming Vidic takes the first non-EU slot, who takes the 2nd? It's obviously not M'Vila, our new ITALIAN goalkeeper, so who?

    Hmm. Casemiro isnt a bad shout.

    I'm not keen on this 'lets take some player on loan for a year but not have an option on him' shit.

    If we signed Casemiro and Zouma and they turn into key players for us and then fuck off that hasnt helped us at all.

    edit;

    oh, the latest news is a 5m sale with buy-back option....

    True, we are a big club, if we're getting loans, they should be with a buying clause, not loans without option to buy them, we aren't Cesena or something (not trying to offend anyone)
