    I dont like the things they said about him in the news, regarding he will need to choose between Inter or go to China.
    I dont understand why he already thinks about going to China in the first place, is it being money wise? or just lazy?
    Come on, he is still fit enough playing in highest league competition, not in China.

    FcIN - Ausilio does not stop: mid-week new contacts for Dembelé


    After filing the capital gains issue, for which there is still time until tomorrow, and having given the first five pieces to Luciano Spalletti for the next season (De Vrij, Asamoah, Lautaro Martinez, Nainggolan and Politano), Piero Ausilio does not stop. The ds of Inter, in addition to continuing to work incessantly for Malcom (which today has not presented in retirement with Bordeaux), as reported by the editors of FcInterNews.it, mid-week will entertain new contacts to get to Mousa Dembelé, that as anticipated is the first choice of the Nerazzurri technician for the mediana of his new Inter. Updates are expected during the week.

    Why could Sporting ask for money though? I think Gelson Carvalho Fernandes are free players, aren't they?

    Well they think themselves that they are free and Sporting Lisbon don't think they are free. I don't think you can just announce that my contract is void now. That shit will go to courts and it will drag for quite a while. I wouldn't touch these players.

    What I cannot understand is why Spalo is leaning on getting Dembele.
    "Supporting Inter means deciding to make your life complicated. It's like supporting the Indians against the Cowboys, it means having a touch of masochism and melancholy. We know we have chosen a difficult love, but this makes it even more beautiful"

    I agree that every team needs experience and not just talent but IMO, you have to create that experience in house. Handanovic is a good example of an experienced player who's been here for many years performing at the highest level. Players like Icardi and Brozovic also have the potential to become such players.

    Look at the experienced players in Real Madrid for example. Almost all of them have been there since they were youngsters. Now that Madrid have a core, they slowly integrate younger players into that core.

    Buying older players who can perform for only 1,2 or 3 years is not that helpful towards building a core.

    I think any player that we go after should at least have the potential to be a starter for 5 years.

    We aren't even an all young team.

    Perisic, Candreva, Valero, D'Ambrosio, Asamoah, Miranda, Handanovic are not youngsters for God's sake.

    These were all starters from last season (Asamoah starter for Juve even) , and we are planning to add more age to that.

    One Nainggolan is seriously sufficient as far as the midfield goes. Unless Dembele can somehow come cheap.

    That's not a good analogy.
    Real Madrid got most of them when they were world class. They got Ramos as a 17 teenage prodigy from Sevilla. They got Modric when he was the best midfielder in the Premier League, they got Kroos when he was the best midfielder since Ballack in Germany, they got Cristiano after a wonder season at Man Utd and it wasn't even his peak, they got Benzema who was supposed to be the best talent out of France, they got Robben and Sneijder when they were considered borderline world class, they got Kaka when he was supposed to be one of the best attacking midfielders around. They got Xabi Alonso when he was one of the best deep playmakers in the world. They got James when he was the best thing around. They got Di Maria when the hype was too high. They got Bale if a transfer record. Their age does not matter, their market profile does. These were players that only a select few clubs could afford at the time they were signed by Real Madrid.

    They did get Higuain, Marcelo, Casemiro, Varane and a few others that were stars in the making, but all of the above were not signed at the same time. And all of them were surrounded by home grown Real Madrid talent. Real Madrid also is the most appealing club in the world and one of the richest if not the richest. So the fact that they already have a decent core from their club grown players and can afford to sign 5 world class players at their peak gives them an advantage.

    But their transfer turnover was incredibly high before their CL run. They stuck with a few of their high profile signings and they ended up being the core. Where is James, how long did Kaka, Sneijder, Robben, Di Maria, Ozil etc stick around? How long did other 'prospect signings' stick around? Garay, Granero, Negredo, Pedro Leon, Canales, Callejon, Khedira, Sahin, Drenthe, Illarramendi, Danilo.... Sure, they stuck with some players like Kovacic and Coentrao who were signed as prospects but they never made it to the first team. That's 65-70m not being used for the first team and no one even cared at Real Madrid.

    And even Real Madrid with their "sign world class players at a young age" had to get Ricardo Carvalho to lead the defence when he was 32.

    We're 3-5 years away from being able to follow that Real Madrid strategy. And that's 3-5 years of contending for lo Scudetto and being an important Champions League team.

    It's funny that you're one of the people who call transfers like SMS unrealistic, yet you want to emulate Real Madrid who in our place would have grabbed SMS before we'd even think about it. Because if you want to emulate Real Madrid your targets would be Milinkovic-Savic, James Rodriguez and Mbappe...

    I'm not excited by our targets for CM. Carvalho looks too slow and nothing special except his strength. Dembele is good but he is indeed a little too old to spend 20m+ on, we can't be sure how long he can play at the high level. Dembele is still the better option out of the 2 but I hope we get another one. Good CM is not as rare as good full back, I don't know why we insist on getting one of these two.

    According to Di Marzio, Dembele has put Inter's offer on hold as he would rather wait until the end of the Chinese transfer window before making his decision. I like Dembele but i find this report really worrying. We should get players who have the motivation to succeed at Inter and not players who just look for a retirement home.

    Well, it's a two way thing.

    We get an "experienced" borderline "World class" player, he gets a safe and good contract to earn the most while he declines.

    LOL
    Dembele is really looking for money then. How motivated this guy is if he's waiting for China? Money is important for everyone but we shouldn't concentrate on players who are considering China as a real option.

    Also, that report of Di Marzio can be total bollocks. Just to feed the readers / followers when nothing has happened in that front
