Story says that during the years he was literally invincible in Croatian camp.

Cards, darts, pool ... you name it, he's the champ.

He even owns the Epic Broz Bar in Zagreb.
He was even flying from Milano to Zagreb during the season to play darts with friends for just a few hours before he is back to Italy.That was before he got a child.

No Kante thread yet?
But looking at the news "After Vidal, Inter will sell: all money from sales will be saved for Kanté"
so basically we tried to flip perisic, nainggolan, dalbert, and jao mario for Kante - pipe dream

Get Locatelli just to piss Milan off.

Reports says Kante wants to stay at Chelsea and Lampard says Kante is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Conte concurs.

If it wasn't high before Mancini raised Locatelli's value for a few millions.

If rumors are true we are sending dalbert sassuolo and trying to get ourselves closer to getting locatelli this would be an incredible transfer.

I doubt Sassuolo would agree to buy Dalbert outright for 12mil or whatever we'll ask. At best it'll be a loan option set at like 8-10mil (which they wont take up).

I do think we're probably interested in Locatelli based on the meetings we've been having with their sporting director, but I doubt he's a top priority right now-- just someone we might be able to get if we offload a few midfielders.

Give them also Joao Mario to sweeten the deal.

I’m fine with missing out on Tonali if we can get Locatelli. He’s a bit more experienced and more of a sure thing than Tonali at this point IMO. Also he has that physique that Conte gets hard for

If it happens, it is going to be quite a domino effect:

Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool (30 million)
Brozovic to B.Munich (40 million)
Kante to Intermilan (50 million)

Not sure if Chelsea is willing to let go of Kante, unless the player does a Lukaku. It might unfortunately go to the deadline days again. :palm:

I can tell you the rumors are false, nobody in their right mind would pay money for Dalbert

Keep Brozo.
Get Vidal.
Keep Nainggolan.
Get one of Partey or Locatelli.

Total expense - 20m-50m

Get rid of Mario, Vecino, Gagliardini.

Total income - 30m

Net spend - max of 20m.

And you have a title winning midfield.

Sounds nice but...who buy Mario Vecino Gagliardini? :pokerface:

One useless Russian-league rejected turd, one injured and one deep midfielder with no defensive capabilities.

I will celebrate even if one of them leaves permanent, let alone three, let alone alone 30m.

Yep. No way we’re selling both Vecino and Gags, 1 is staying for sure. Actually at this rate maybe even both, Vecino had a market but after that injury I don’t think he has anymore. And Gags ain’t going to leave especially after seeing how much game time he got last year. Shitty situation for sure

If gagliardini is our 5th or 6th midfielder, we are in great shape.

Gagliardini was our 5th or 6th midfielder last season, at least after Eriksen was acquired => started all our EL matches in August. :trollol:

Not just EL matches. In post-covid era, he started all our Serie A games, apart from the one he missed due to suspension.

And in those games our record was...

Well we lost 1 league game vs bologna and the Final vs Sevilla. Gimme a break, gagliardini isnt breaking our back.

He was featured more because Sensi, Vecino, and Valero were injured and finished. Such circumstances made him first choice. Assuming we have more fortune with fitness, a 5/6 will rarely see action and if they do, it's good to have gagliardini's characteristics. Come on, he is limited in technical skills but he has lots of stamina and breaks up attacks.

If selling Brozo means getting Kante or Partey I say do it. Both are better players than him. However if we sell him just to add more mediocre depth I'll be pissed. I'm not a huge Brozo fan(I actually think he's extremely overrated here) but as of right now he should still be a consistent starter in our current rotation.
