    With everyone we are sending out will we get 100 million? 50? Less? Or all loans that we pay the wages haha

    All those guys need to be sold and wages off our books

    In fifa 21 I got 300 million for them 40 million for ninja and 150 million for Eriksen man if only that was real but we would then just spend 500 for Gomez

    Media: Papu Gomez, De Paul, Kante.
    Reality: Gervinho.

    After the summer window, I don't think we can afford any nice players, so loaning Gervinho will be all we can do.

    Sad, but probably true. I doubt we have any money to spend this winter. Our only hope to raise some funds is if we can sell Eriksen. I suspect that is unlikely this window, more likely in the summer. Which means we are left with the following possibilities:

    1. Swap deals using players like Perisic, Nainggolan, Pinamonti, Vecino, etc
    2. Loan deals with option to buy
    3. Expiring contracts
    4. Players out of favour like Papu Gomez, Alonso, etc

    I love the outs list, would be more than pleased to see that happen 100% would like to see Eriksen go out on loan, he might get a chance next season pending manager.

    The in player list does not excite me, at all.

    He goes on loan? How much of those wages would we need to cover. In what universe will his value increase?

    Eriksen on loan is pointless. He's simply not worth the wages we're paying him and at 28-29 years it's unlikely he'll develop into the world beater we expected.

    Sell him and replace with a more modern/tactically flexible midfielder e.g. De Paul or get 1-2 younger prospects e.g. Castrovilli and/or Serdar.

    Looking at our squad objectively, these are the players/positions that are good enough.

    Starter material: White
    Good enough for bench: Orange
    Need to purge: Red


    Lukaku (Pinamonti) - Martinez (Sanchez)
    Sensi (Vidal, Eriksen)
    ?? (Young, Perisic) - ?? (Brozovic, Nainggolan) - Barella (Vecino, Gagliardini) - Hakimi (Darmian)
    Bastoni (Kolarov) - De Vrij (Ranocchia) - Skriniar (D'Ambrosio)
    Handanovic (Radu, Padelli)

    At the mo we need at least 2 starters, and at least 2-3 quality bench options. Considering our financial constraints, I guess we can at best get 1 top player and a bunch of free/short term solutions.

    1. DM: I think we should focus our spend on midfield. If we can get enough money for Eriksen to get a Brozovic upgrade, that would be awesome. Ideally someone who is better defensively, so that Gags never has to play again. Kante would ve been perfect, but now he is surely out of the market. I am not sure about Paredes, and Xhaka just isn't good enough. We need better options. Any suggestions? Perhaps Jorginho?

    2. LWB: I doubt we have the money to get a "Hakimi" for this position. So maybe a cheap, short term solution will suffice, and sending our Perisic. I think a free 6 month loan offer for Alonso (who doesn't even make the bench at Chelsea these days) could be an option.

    3. Vice Lukaku: I doubt we can get any decent option here. Chelsea won't be interested in selling Giroud, now that he is scoring freely again. Gomez isn't a vice-Lukaku, but he could help rotate the 3 strikers. So if he is available on a free or as a swap for some of our worthless players, I would go for it.

    4. CB bench: Perhaps this could wait till the summer. Our starting CBs are on fire, and we are out of Europe. Dumbo & Ranocchia can help with rotation.


    One thing that I am quite happy about is (fitness permitting) I am satisfied with 9 starting positions now.

    I am ok with one of Vecino or Gagliardini as the 6th midfielder. One orange one red, I really don't care which one is which.

    Nice idea, let me give it a shot.

    ?? (Perisic) - Lukaku (Lautaro, Pinamonti) - ?? (Sanchez)
    Barella (Sensi)- Brozovic (Vecino, Nainggolan) - Eriksen (Gagliardini, Vidal)
    ?? (Darmian) - Skriniar (Bastoni) - De Vrij (??) - Hakimi (D'Ambrosio)
    ?? - (Handanovic, Radu)

    All: Conte

    No need to purge Young, Kolarov and Ranocchia as their contracts end when the season ends. Basically, we just need two wingers, a left-back and a goalkeeper. Oh, and of course a sane coach.

    Gomez - Gagliardini swap rumours? I am ok with it as long as we also get some cash in that swap considering their ages and situation.

    The fact that Atalanta would probably accept this and we wont do it because of Conte is sad, man.

    According to reports from America [ESPN] Juventus have agreed a $10m deal with FC Dallas for right-back Bryan Reynolds, who will then be loaned to Cagliari.

    Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira has reportedly scheduled a trip to England and could be on his way to Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.

    Juventus are said to be in advanced negotiations with Italy Under-21 international midfielder Nicolò Rovella, whose contract with Genoa is running down.

    Fernando Llorente could return to Juventus in January after a disappointing spell at Napoli, although there is also interest from Sampdoria. According to Sky Sport Italia, the 35-year-old is on the list of potential signings for Juve, who need someone with similar characteristics to Alvaro Morata.

    Juventus announced they have renewed their shirt sponsorship deal with Jeep for the next three seasons, worth €45m per year plus bonuses.

    Milan face strong competition from OGC Nice in the hunt for RC Strasbourg defender Mohamed Simakan.

    Hellas Verona have reportedly rejected an offer from Milan worth €5m plus Leo Duarte for defender Matteo Lovato.

    Andrea Conti’s agent warns the defender’s next career step is ‘a big dilemma’ and he must decide between sticking with Milan or walking away.

    Mateo Musacchio’s agent claims the defender has been mistreated by Milan, played through injury for the club and is not going to Genoa.

    There are reports [Sky Sport Italia] Milan are interested in picking up midfielder Riqui Puig on loan from Barcelona in January.

    Sassuolo want €25m for loanee Gianluca Scamacca, who has been targeted by League leaders Milan.

    Milan step up their interest in Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic, reportedly hoping to carve out a deal similar to the one for Brahim Diaz. La Gazzetta dello Sport reports the Rossoneri are in touch with the Serbian forward’s representatives but haven’t contacted Los Blancos yet.

    Milan have reportedly offered €3.5m a season for Hakan Calhanoglu, but the Turkey international wants €5m plus bonuses.

    Milan have reportedly offered a new €7m deal for Gianluigi Donnarumma, but Mino Raiola has reportedly received offers from Juventus and Inter too.

    Fiorentina will reportedly fight Roma for the signature of Stephan El Shaarawy, who seems set for a return to Italy after a stint Shanghai Shenhua.

    +BONUS: Agent: 'Szoboszlai wanted to be a protagonist'
    Agent Matyas Esterhazy said coach Julian Nagelsmann made ‘the difference’ when Dominik Szoboszlai chose RB Leipzig over Milan.
