only a brief one from me today just venting some frustration

Our transfer window is currently being impeded by our inability to sell any players, to generate money for making new signings.
Desperately trying to sell Silvestre
We’ve got maybe 30-40 million euros of players on our books who need to sell if we want to bring in any new players. To date our signings have been cheap or offset in the future (Dodo), and we desperately need to bring in some new players to refresh the squad.
Our inability to sell Guarin (15?), Alvarez (10?), Kuzmanovic (5?), Silvestre (3?), is really hurting our abilities to bring in top players. Not many players want to come in under a loan scheme – and if you look at what we’ve done so far, it roughly adds up. Access to the top talent that we desperately need will be restricted to our ability to sell players in the first place, and bring in good players to replace them.
I don’t know about other Inter fans, but I’m secretly hopeful for a couple of big deals to be lined up – Balanta and Hernandez (though it is impossible we will sign both with Medel due to be announced) for example, or perhaps a similar ‘high billing’ striker. M’Vila seems like a very astute signing so far, Dodo might be perfectly capable, but we need to get a new CB, Striker, and with Alvarez and Guarin leaving, probably another midfielder or two too.
Further to this we have a bloated squad already – with 31 players already at the club, and with the soon-to-be-announced Medel transfer taking us up to 32, this is far too busy. With Schelotto, Silvestre, Taider, Campagnaro, MBaye and probably Botta all due to leave, this still takes us down to a substantial 26 players, without any new additions.
The longer we leave our sales, the harder it will be to bring in the new players we want, and the lower our leverage will be. We need to act quickly before we miss out entirely.
PS. I love the pathetic persistent fielding of Kuzmanovic to try to advertise him, which is clearly not helping at all.
