To get Skriniar going. This in the case De Vrij could handle it in RCB position.

Almost every time might be exaggeration yes, but even Cornelius of Parma owned him in post-lockout match.

God no! Boateng is done. Injuries have totally ruined him. He's still at Bayern only because he's German.

apparently he's very good this year,
some even said he's their best CB and thought he would be beast at 3atb formation

I disagree. It was Alaba who made him look good in the second part of the season as he was covering for him . He has lost his speed and he can easily be caught out of position so I don't think he would be a good rcb.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com), Inter have joined Milan in the race for Nikola Milenkovic, leapfrogging the Rossoneri. The centre-back has distinguished himself as one of the best defenders in the league in recent season.

Milan seemed to be ahead for the Serbian but have grown tired as of late due to the high price tag of €40m, which has facilitated the entrance of Inter. In fact, the Nerazzurri have already been in touch with the Viola management.

In the negotiations between Inter and Fiorentina, Dalbert has been included in the discussion as the Brazilian full-back – currently on loan at the Tuscan side – is owned by the Nerazzurri. This is an advantage that perhaps could lower the price tag.

If this is true, so Skriniar is bye bye.

This is great news, if true.

1. I rather use Dalbert as a makeweight for a decent player like Milenkovic, than someone average like Biraghi.

2. IMO Milenkovic is a better RCB than Skriniar. If Skriniar wants to start, he has to prove himself worthy and show that he is better than Bastoni or De Vrij or Milenkovic in their positions. Otherwise become a rotational player or get a big money transfer. Thats how it should be in a top club with title aspirations.

3. If Milenkovic comes and Skriniar stays, Godin can leave. Our wage bill will reduce. Or another idea would be to use Skriniar as a swap with Kante/Jorginho+Alonso as Chelsea are in the market for a CB.

I believe a few more teams like Arsenal, Bayern and Real might also be on a CB hunt, but I doubt Bayern will offer enough money for Skriniar.

I hope it will be option 3.

Dalbert + Gagliardini + 10m€ for Milenkovic. Deal.

Kicking out Skriniar will hurt more than Coutinho+Kovacic+Zaniolo together. I'll shed tears.

According to Romano, Inter would be willing to sell Skriniar only in a swap deal with Ndombele.

Saw Smalling linked with Inter on GdS.

Read the headline only as it was premium article.

Now Marotta is studying the attack on Juve. And try for Smalling

Inter never cease to amaze me....think this is a stupid piece of business. Where or how would Ndbombele fit? Unless they sell Brozovic as well.

Skriniar should not be sold, he's young and loves the club. I personally see him being the next captain and would want him to be here until the end of his career. Conte needs to accept certain parameters and Skriniar is one of them.

Oh God, if we sell skriniar and ended with smailing, dombele and emerson palmieri :palm:

If they really want skriniar (60 millions)
just go with partey (50 millions), reguilon (30 -35 millions), Kumbulla, Tonalli and call it a day (Net spend 100 millions)

btw madrid might me on some financial difficulty, 've read some article that they sold hakimi for that reason, and because they are now out of UCL, they need to sell few more to raise money, maybe we can take some of their loaned player on reasonable price since the good realationship, and usually their trash is better than our treasure (like theo)

Couple of days ago, i've read that Inter declined a swap proposal Ndombele- Skriniar, as they want only cash. I don't recall the source thou.

Smalling is great and perfectly fit for Serie A. I gladly welcome him IF we dont sell Skriniar. Especially for the lazy ass Ndombele bullshit.

Sportmediaset any good? Reported that Inter are considering Smalling for 25 million.
