Well calciomercato reports that if we sign Jimenez we will give up on Kovač..
I agree about Solari.. he doesn't fit our system and it's a shame to see a good player sitting on a bench for a whole season..

Well, then that is a good thing. Hope Jimenez will be a loan deal, no reason to pay like 10M€ for him.

I don't understand why do we need 5 central defenders and four attacking midfielders. Materazzi, Cordoba, Samuel, Burdisso should be fine as CBs, Chivu can play in the middle too. Figo and Jimenez should be enough as AMs, there is also Solari (which in my opinion is surplus). No reason to splash on Kovac as it seems Spartak doesn't want to release him for too low price.

10M€ is a ridicilous sum for a pure subtitution player. And because Kovac would be totally unneeded now when Jimenez seems to be coming. I don't understand that, if Inter has really offered even 7M€ for Kovac. What the hell? Ridicilous transfer sum for a complete sub player who would sit on the stands for most of the season.

Jimenez and Kovac are two totally different players. One is an attacking midfielder who can play all the attacking positions in midfield while the other is a defensive midfielder.

Well sure, but buying 2 midfielders is too much, given that Figo is staying. Jimenez/Stankovic/Figo/Solari for offensive and Kovac/Zanetti/Cambiasso/Vieira/Dacourt would be too much. Zanetti,Cambiasso,Vieira,Stankovic - would be our starters, Jimenez,Solari,Figo,Kovac,Dacourt left out. Mancini wants 1 att and 1 def midfielder for bench, Figo and Dacourt. That means Solari,Kovac and Jimenez would sit on the stands, no no no.

I say we sign one, and deki will play either at MC or AMC depending the role of the newcomer.

edit. Just thought about if we miss out on Chivu, maybe Mancio would consider playing Zanetti at leftback position. That would free up one position in midfield, making us need 2 players.

Jimenez/Figo/Stankovic
Cambiasso-Vieira-Stankovic/Kovac

What ever happened to Maresca??? Is he still a targer? I haven't heard much lately...

Sevilla aren't in a hurry to sell him. While Jimenez has stated he won't play for lazio again so he is easier to get and Kovac would love to join Inter so they are easier to get.

Jimenez.. I don't know, he could be another Mariano. Well, he won't start the games anyway. Better than spending +10M on someone else.

the good news about jimenez is that he comes on loan so there is no money wasted, inter will test him and if he it's any good will get him, the inter of 3 or 4 years probably would have get him for 10 millions and not play him never, maybe we are getting smart or something.
also jimenez is only 23 years old, i thought he was 27 or 28.

if cambiasso or vieira or jz are injured. we will probably see stankovic moving back, and figo playing in stankovic role, then jimenez will be the first option if figo gets injured.

No it's not suazo total deal was worth 14 million euros. Half of Acquafresca was included and some money which I think was more than 9 million euros.

My bad. Confused £ and €.

Good thinking ragazzo f. I'd say that in this summer season us fans we are amusing ourselves by dreamposting and not only commenting on our favourite players around, but also inventing new game systems rotating players as if they were toy soldiers on a table... In our mind we shift them in roles and actions that before we snap our fingers become so real. In our minds...

I'd say it's not only wishful thinking but almost like a religious hypnosis and we should better get our eyes open before the reality washes our faces. As a non expert I risk to be laughed at, but I can imagine that 99 percent of people around here would swore that the system that Inter actually plays is a 4312 and nothing else, and I could also kinda imagine a tel. call to Mancini that would go stg. like: 'Buongiorno signore, very sorry for bothering you, but could you please tell me what system Inter plays and intends to play next year?' 'Non c'e problema son, we play 442.' 'Grazie.' 'Prego.'

That is why I think our dream playmakers are not a realistic and feasible option.

Yeah I just explained that in my post which you quoted. alvaro also explained the same quite well. We don't need them both. :) Good thing it's Jimenez, he's shown he can deliver at Serie A level, we know jack shit about Kovac. Who is besides much older than Jimenez and we would have to pay the transfer fee to get him. The chilean is a much better choice. :thumbsup:

Moratti and all the Inter players said "wa really want Scudetto gain and especially winning Champions" but we will buy Jimenez, Kovac, Rivas.

What meaning?

jimenez would be a gamble for any uefa cup team, and for any CL team its simply a joke of a transfer.

Oriali and branca has to be sacked ASAP for inter to achieve anything on the market.

Just release Solari with completly doesn't suit our system and there is no problem anymore.
