    Barella deal was quite good, we are committed to pay 12 + 25m only, very reasonable for anyone who is considered a wonder kid these days. The easy-to-reach bonus is paid after 100 appearances with at least 45 mins. 100 appearances is a big number, Miranda has only played 109 league games for us in 4 years for reference.

    Then there is a scudetto winning bonus

    Insisting on acquiring Lukaku for a price that is obscene is stubborn and unprofessional.

    Wanting Dzeko, even though our track record with Roma-players are absolutely abysmal is mind boggling.

    Meanwhile we have Perisic and Asamoah for left wing, who were both severely disappointing last season, and Candreva (...) + Lazaro for right wing.
    Who would you have bought? Just genuinely curious, keeping in mind Antonio Conte is your coach

    I have to admit that I am starting to worry about our mercato. There is no other news being reported other than Manchester United's reluctance to shift from their asking price of 83 million for Lukaku and Icardi still having a preference for Juventus over Napoli. The only other news that I have read is that the club are supposedly looking at Cavani in the event they can not secure Lukaku.

    It feels like we are stuck as no other club wants our shit players (Dalbert, the double Vagina pivot in Valero and Vecino and Mario - I don't blame them) and that we can not move forward. I just wish some other names were being talked about and that we were being linked with other players. Right now, it just feels like time is passing and we are standing helplessly still.

    Yep, no name beside Lukaku is being mentioned these days. Just some suggestions, but nothing serious.

    Our inability to clear the squad from the dead wood is a pain in the ass.

    Still more than a month to go.

    Viola are interested in Valero fwiw. Vecino is going nowhere sadly. I don't think him getting sold was really an option.

    I'm most worried about the forward situation. If Ausilio can't get United to significantly lower their price for Lukaku over the next week, we need to move on and figure something out quickly.

    You don't get to play hardball when it comes to a player you don't need.

    I'd get them to swap Valero for a young kid of theirs. Maybe they have another Zaniolo in there we could poach for 1m. Worst case scenario we end up with a useless youth player. Middle ground is selling him for plusvalenza to Brescia or Pescara or wherever.

    Also, Asamoah was decent. It would be suicidal to sell him now. He knows Conte, his system and knows what Conte will ask of him. Would be silly to sell him now and enter the market for a replacement, who won't have any of Asamoah's perks.

    Pretty much agree on the rest though.
    I was never impressed with Barella when I saw him - though to be fair, I only watched Cagliari when they played against us. And at that price I expect an immediate impact, such as the one Rafinha gave us.

    I don't disagree that Asamoah is a player who fits into Conte's system, but he did have several missplaced passes and bad decisions last year, symptomatic of a player who is deteriorating fast.

    Quote Originally Posted by CoolMan44 View Post

I'm surprised he didn't leave last year but it seems like he really loves the club and didnt push for a transfer which is a quality I like in a player. Obviously not the same example but Liverpool solved their left-back problem by buying a player from a relegation team. Obviously the money was much less, but like I said, it was obvious Barella had outgrown Cagliari for some time and him being A national team starter inflated the price. I have a lot of issues with many transfers we've done but not this one.

    Lazaro I have no comment on as I've never watched him play and something tells me that a lot of people making judgment on him have probably never watched.him play regularly either.
    My comment was more applied to Sensi. And you are right, a player doesn't necessarily have to come from a top club to make a big impact. But I would say that our problems in gameplay for the last several years, bar the 6 months with Rafinha, need the experience and ability of a player who has been at a top club for years to solve them.

    I have no idea! Honestly, I'm very bad at understanding football and I have a limited knowledge about players outside of Inter.

    But I recognize patterns, and we're repeating some bad patterns.

    The guy on you tube who has contacts with people near Inter/Suning that said "Barella and Conte will come for sure" (and i talked about this more then 1 month ago), said that Lukaku is already a Inter player, it's official. But there is more! Apparently we have a agreement with SMS. What Cds said is true, we are searching to give Lazio money + a midfielder. He willl join for 90% Inter (so not 100% like lukaku, but there is a great chance, it's almost done)


    i promise nothing, at the end nobody knows what really could happen in this last month. But as i said 1-2 months ago, this guy knows a lot of things and a lot of times he was right. Im curios to see what will happen. For sure we need for the starting team a striker and if possible a quality midfielder. I can't imagine that we are only working to get Dzeko and Lukaku.


    This team is crazy, it's not the first time that the best players came here only at August or the last days of mercato. Last year it was Keita balde for example.(even if we tryed to get Modric and also was close to get Vidal) Im really curios what kind of transfers we will see in the coming weeks, nothing is over....

    i will translate the things we don't really know

    In the first video he said that Marotta came to Inter with Conte. It was like a deal between Suning and him. I work for you, but only if we get Conte as coach.

    In the second he talked more specificly about the Icardi thing.He confirms what Wanda Nara said at Tiki Taka. Ausilio and Spalletti wanted to accept a swap between Icardi and Higuain, but Icardi refused.
    Marotta joined, he want's to change the way Inter works, a revolution is starting.
    Something happend between Icardi and he's team mates, the captain band get's removed.
    Spalletti already knows that things are changing at Inter and that he lost he's job. But he accept it, not like Icardi that refuse to play, calls a advocate and says "i did nothing bad". And exactly this is the reason why Spalletti got mad.
    We will hear the version of Icardi once he left the club. Then we will probably know more about this.

    At all nothing new, its what we all saw at the end. A sport director that came here and want together with the Club change mentality. And Icardi is a cunt. End of story
    Nel bene e nel male, forza Internazionale!!

    He says a couple of more things about Icardi, (Spalletti) and Marotta in the first video.

    That Marotta came and everyone became expendable despite the fact that the Chinese wanted to build the team around Skriniar and Icardi. That's not something you should have omitted.

    He also says that no one understood shit about the issue, so saying "what we don't know" and leaving everything he says out is just playing about. The whole video is there and is still relevant because the media has not disclosed the reasoning of this friction.

    You've also didn't really put much effort into what he said about the stripping of the captaincy

    Yeah Suning said that but it was just not true, everyone was/is at risk. And all what happend in that time was just the beggining of what will happen or is happening now (Icardi leaving, Radja, maybe Perisic...)

    I really explained what he said, there is nothing what we don't know. BUt of course as he said, we will know more when Icardi will talk.

    what? tell me the minute of what youre talking about, i will explain better. Sadly is a 13 minute video. I only explained what for me is important. I cant explain every thing he says, most of it are not suprising things.

    We are slowly backing ourselves into a corner really
    Even if the rumors are true Lukaku, Dzeko and Lautaro are not enough to compete on 3 fronts. (and in this condition we choose to ship Pinamonti away for some reason )
    We still don't have a solid mezzala/trequartista and only a miracle will bring one till the end of mercato.

    For some reasons, which are FFP and settlement agreement. Pinamonti was sold in June for capital gains for the fiscal year.
