Fabrizio Biasin:

"I think Inter could go ahead with Handanovic for at least another season.

“As far as the future is concerned, Musso is a player they like along with Alessio Cragno at Cagliari.

“Ausilio in particular has a soft spot for Musso, but so does Marotta.”

Some Turkish paper saying that Ausilio is flying out to open up negotiations for Cakir (seems like bs considering covid restrictions).

I wish inter going to get audero from samp instead of cragno. Been following him since last year, he is very impressive for sampdoria.

And what is the falcao law?

Awh that makes me feel old.

It refers to the bias posters have for players of their own nationality. Scholars trace its origins to crzdcolombian's hyping up of Falcao in the mid-2010s.

A quality left wing back is top of the list for transfers this summer but with each match a new goalkeeper is quickly climbing that list

"Udinese were clinical in attack and thanked Juan Musso in goal, as they practically secured their Serie A safety with a 4-2 victory away to troubled Benevento."

How hard (realistic) would it be to get Donnarumma in summer?!

I think it's extremely unlikely he'd accept switching from Milan to Inter. I bet he wouldn't be able to live and walk in Milano anymore if he made such switch.

Also financially, very hard to digest. Demand is 10m€ net annually and probably heavy commission to Raiola + signing on fee for the player. Even 8m€ is insanity IMO (this is what Maldini's latest offer is) for a goalkeeper.

In comparison to Musso?

Yeah, Musso costs probably over 20m€ (no one is gonna pay 30m€ Pozzo demands). So that brings around 5m€ to-be-amortized book value annually. Then salary, maybe 2m€ net so 4m€ gross which makes it close to 10m€ annual overall cost. Still considerably lower than Donnarumma.

And it's not like you make this investment and Donnarumma will be satisfied with this salary for the next 10 years. In 2-3 years from now Raiola will ask for more and the trend will continue for a while as Donnarumma is only 21. Sooner or later you will be forced to sell him as his salary demands will reach astronomical levels.

Yeah that's the base for the annual cost. It starts from 16m€+ (PLUS all the commissions and fees added on top, which are amortized). At least in Milan it's the same thing as it was with Zlatan when he was here. The best player in the team so Raiola takes full advantage of that with his constant payraise demands. He does not do that with all his players.

I dont know why everyone is looking only at Serie A goalkeepers. I think both Musso and Cragno are not that great. Especially Cragno who is just too small. He will probably be available, cause Cagliari can see their second GK is better than he is. Handanovic was the best GK in the league when Inter signed him and there is no one as good as he was right now. Id much rather go for Unai Simon from Bilbao or Remiro from Sociedad. It sucks that Inter probably wont wanna spend 30M. There is also one big problem. None of these GK's know how to play with their feet. From what i saw Unai Simon is ok, but still not that good. Anyway, Handa will probably be #1 next season, but after that we better spend big to get a great GK and not someone just cause they are cheap.

Cakir is an interesting option outside of serie A.

I think Cragno and Audero are both quality options on the cheap. Each have their weakness (height, feet), but both will make crucial saves. There's also Silvestri.

Musso is of course good but Udinese are overvaluing him imo.

Musso is boss, very underrated in the world of football, just because he hasnt been hyped in south america and now plays at Udinese. And is not italian lol.

Cragno I can agree on, he is not the same since the injury last year. Still has great anticipation and reflexes, but his reach and positioning are subpar, we would imo concede tons of goals from crosses.

edit: Audero is also good GK, but imo Musso is better, more complete GK.
