    Just to be clear a loan with an obligation from an FFP perspective is treated as equivalent to an outright transfer.

    That has been repeated million times already. What I'm interested in is that why we keep having these loan + obligation deals then. How can we have cash flow problems? Surely the formula of the deal will cost us something in these deals.

    I've been trying to think of the scenarios why it does matter despite in FFP it is equivalent to an outright transfer. Only thing which comes to my mind is since we are loaning let's say Barella for this season, he won't be in our books as an asset but as an expense (valued 12m€ loan fee) and that somehow is beneficial for us.

    Maybe Suning want to pay these deals through the actual cash flow of the club instead of dipping into their own pockets

    If we get Lukaku, Dzeko AND ALSO sms then it would be fucking massive. Godin, Sensi, Barella, Lazzaro, Lukaku, sms, Dzeko and we ship Icardi (if it was for Dybala that would be out of this world), maybe Valero/Vecino/N9. Seriously, that will significantly upgrade our team. But that's a big if. Maybe we're laying low for sms, because man utd wants him as well, but they need the money. So we buy Lukaku, then they think they have sms in their hand, but we swoop in immidietly and snatch him from under his nose. That would be some fucking masterstroke. We'll see. I still think we have lots of cash laying there that we accumulated over the recent 3 years due to FFP and not being able to spend more than we received from transfers. Handanovic, Godin, Skriniar, De Vrij, Brozovic, Sms, Barella, Perisic, Lazarro, Lautaro, Lukaku. That's some fucking 11 I tell ya.

    We are about to lose Lukaku over a relatively negligible difference of 5mil on his price yet people are thinking we will afford SMS who isn't even a Conte's request?

    You lads are in for a rude awakening.

    About to lose? Negotiations just started. Is this your first mercato you've been following?

    Generally this RUT over the transfers when they seem to be close is just hilarious. No matter what the transfer is and how much we are willing to invest, people just want transfers. Specially this Lukaku case as he's not a gamebreaking acquisition by any means.

    It's the publicly secret dream for most of the people because they feel the midfield is a bit underwhelming with the current players if we want to challenge for the top positions. Nainggolan is not good enough anymore. He was great or good time to time last season but not consistently (for whatever reason). He's too slow and I believe in Conte's football he's definitely too slow. If he's sold, we need someone to replace him, as Barella can't be that player. Barella comes in to play with Brozo (Sensi goes to the bench to give depth).

    I'm absolutely against Lukaku, don't get me wrong. But we are haggling over what is de facto our main transfer target, whether we like it or not. Instead of splashing those few mil that are peanuts on his general value so that our new manager can do proper pre-season work with aforementioned main transfer target, we are being our usual peasant selves.

    Not my first mercato but I keep getting upset every summer just the same as if it was.

    We’re buying Lukaku for 83 million.. 3 million more than Lazio’s asking price for SMS. Man United will take our 83 million and reinvest it in SMS. Let that sink in. We are idiots.

    Its clear we need SMS a lot more than Lukaku.. he’s also younger and has a higher ceiling with a higher resale value. He’s also arguably the better player right now pound for pound. In fact I would even take SMS as a striker over Lukaku.

    We pay 83 for Lukaku and he fails I am done with this club.

    Really feel Conte is trolling us and will be quitting after the transfer window closes

    I agree Café but this dream, from how I see it right now, is not going to materialise. I'm guessing if we offload Icardi and Nainggolan, we would make that move somehow someway. However, I believe that Lotito is the kind of guy you start to push his buttons early and not midway through the mercato. It would be extremely hard unless we're going to fantastically assume that they've been negotiating since last year

    This club ... I used to be way more optimistic than this but Inter just sucks it out of you. Hoping for better days...

    Fighting over Lukaku or SMS when we need both tbh... Tired of this peasant mentality... But but we don't have money, well then don't expect much trophies or wins...

    Have some patience. I'm sure Conte wouldn't risk coming to us if we didn't give him some guarantees. After Barella signed we focus on Lukaku, after him I got faith we'll make a big midfield creative/offensive signing.

    On a side note, wouldn't mind seeing James here if SMS is too expensive.

    The good part of this mercato is the fact that more than half is still left and we have made some key signings. We clearly need more signings, but the squad already is better than last season. We can focus on selling some players, get hopefully 120-140m (Icardi + Dalbert + Mario + Valero + Vecino/Gags + Miranda). And then we can buy 2-3 big players for the midfield, forward and wing positions.
