    Mancini had a bad relationship with Kovacic. Kovacic himself had admitted it.

    Btw City wanted Skriniar in 2018. He's still at Inter.

    City wanted him in January 2018. Their offer got rejected and they decided to sign Laporte instead. This is what Skriniar agent had said to AS:

    “Inter Milan paid Sampdoria €28m (£24m) for Skriniar and six months later, Manchester City came in with an offer of €55m (£46m),”

    It is interesting that the media, with the exception of links to Messi, has basically proposed a deal that includes most members of the Barcelona team + money in exchange for Martinez.

    Perhaps the silliest part is Captain Zanetti coming out and saying that Inter are happy with Martinez and that the player is happy at Inter. Some times, I feel Zanetti lives in a bubble of denial or that he is really good at stating the obvious. Or maybe part of his job is to be positive without reservations.

    It may well be the case that both Inter and Martinez are happy with each other but that does not provide any guarantee that he will be here next season or in the seasons to come. It is merely a snapshot in time and states the present status of the player but by no means has any bearing on his future.

    There's no question, I believe, that Lautaro is a high priority for Barca. Whether the player feels similarly is merely speculation. With a fixed €111M buyout clause available in July I am confident the Barcelona board would prefer to make a deal involving players+cash - so in the end it may simply be a question of whether Inter would prefer to accept it over the entirety of the clause up front & logically for that to happen, Barcelona would have to sweeten the deal to exceed the cash value of the clause. As I have posted before, a long ways until then

    cash+players makes sense for both sides, too. We could book 120-130m for Lautaro, which is huge plusvalenza and balances all of our loss in sponsorship recently.

    Barca need cash and booking minimum +40m for Alena and Todibo would go a long way for them too I suspect.

    Lautaro is a high priority for Barcelona.
    Inter is reluctant to lose the player but at the same time it's not our highest priority to keep him.
    Lautaro would be pleased to stay and would also be pleased to move to Barcelona. Whether it's more or less at any situation is not that big of a factor I guess. It's not like it's Inter or Gladbach/Wolves/Roma/Marseille/Valencia.

    Not that hard to figure out what's happening.

    How the hell can anyone claim to know what is going on in Lautaro's mind? If anything, the least probable mindset is that it's all the same to him whether he goes or stays. People always have a leaning stance.

    I mean that if we make an offer to Lautaro it could be acceptable to him as he's not in *leave now* mode. He just has a very good suitor after him.
    If we don't do anything, then he'd be pissed with us and would want to leave whether it's Barcelona or Dortmund.

    I think Lautaro will stay because corona virus destroyed sponsors and tv rights so clubs will not have so much money in summer.

    Also they number one priority is Neymar.

    Also if they don't buy Neymar they are coming for Lautaro paying clause , and then it is realistic that he will want to leave.

    Barcelona is bigger club then Inter and that is truth. If you don't think so you are fool.
    They were playing with second team and win in second game this season in CL.
    Barcelona can't afford to pay the 110 million in one single payment. Which is why we are getting rumours of cash plus players and other rumours of just straight cash 130-140 million which would be paid in installments.

    Barca allegedly dont have the cashflow to pay the 111m in a lump sum. If that is true, from an FFP perspective booking some plusvalenza will really help

    If I remember correctly, Mancini played him behind the forwards as a last ditch attempt to see if he could make it work, but never demonstrated an understanding of the position. One of the most short-sighted assessments I've seen at inter, especially since Mancini wasn't expected to be here long enough to see it through.

    Kovacic was utilised as an AM, multiple times, and he didn't impress, quite the contrary.

    His only game where he resembled our twisted fantasy of him in the AM slot was that one game against Lazio where he gave like 2-3 assists. He was never able to replicate that gamae tho.
    Inter is an artistic venture, almost poetic. It is capable of provoking immense, unreachable joy and bitter disappointment. Itís never done by half-measures.
    For me, Inter is the opening to new worlds and courage. Itís a strong passion, a marvellous illness. You can put up with the weaknesses and admire the courage, the same way you would with a son.

    Report: Inter reject Barca bid for Lautaro

    Inter have reportedly rejected Barcelona's first bid of €70m plus Arturo Vidal and Nelson Semedo for the Argentine forward Lautaro Martinez.

    La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist NicolÚ Schira has reported that President Josep Maria Bartomeu has put Lautaro at the top of his wish list ahead of the transfer market this summer and was willing to part ways with two of his current players.

    Lautaro has been linked with a move to Barcelona after stepping up his performances at San Siro this term and the reports in Italy have previously revealed a buy-out clause of €111m in his current deal.

    But Schira reports that the Blaugrana were looking to find a solution to part with a lower fee and add Vidal and Semedo in a possible deal, only for the Nerazzurri to ask for the full amount in cash.

    The Chilean midfielder Vidal has been targeted by coach Antonio Conte as an ideal addition to his current squad and the Blaugrana hoped Portuguese defender Semedo could be added to pivot the deal towards the required value.

    The report claims that Barcelona are preparing a contract worth €10m a year for Lautaro, but will have to pay the full amount to release him from his current deal at Inter.

    >>> If Barcelona want to buy, they need to pay up, simple as that. So good luck selling expensive players on high wage, we already know how challenging that is (Icardi, Nainggolan, Perisic, etc.)

    Marotta is playing this right. Why accept players in exchange when you know there are FFP bound as well? This will allow either:
    - us to keep Lautaro at least 1 more season, until Barcelona can potentially free up funds
    - us to be in better negotiation position when it comes to spreading payment (increased overall transfer value)

    I also feel Lautaro should produce more than just a couple of months of good football here. Similar to Pogba transfer - use him to win before selling him.

    Let Barca cough up the cash for Lautaro and if any player is considered, make a separate offer.

    Feels like a deal will be done, just a question of what terms, much less when - either full fee up front or player(s) + cash. The latter will appeal to Inter if they get good value in return else clearly the full fee will have to be paid

    But as others say, who knows when the market will even open since I have a hard time imagining we are stabilized by July - fingers crossed

    Offering any sort of cash discount to acquire Vidal would be malpractice. I like to think Marotta is too smart for that.

    Players means we can inflate the amount of plusvalenza we get for martinez. It's not an option when it's all cash. With the icardi sale looking a little bumpy and a messy window coming up, if barca offered 80 plus some useful players we could book that at like 150m easily and give the club like +130m plusvalenza. Sell icardi as well and thata 200m plusvalenza in one window.

    Incidentally, Edu Polo from MD (Basically speaking for the board) just posted that the rumoured offer that was rejected does not even sound credible - effectively refuting what has been reported

    Players make a lot of sense right now. Barca need plusvalenza as do we.
