Sky sports doubling down on seri and saying it's confirmed for whatever that's worth.


I don't understand what it is with our club that they sign so many mediocre players just for depth. Adding this guy does not add any true quality to the team. Especially in a position we are already heavy in. We did this for years with wingbacks and it got us absolutely nowhere. It's like throwing shit at a barn. Even if it sticks, it's still shit.

There was also a report about Inter and Seri on the French source, Foot Mercato. I have no idea about their reliability.

Matt Law confirmed Guardian report about Kante. He also reports Inter will try to raise funds to make a third final cash offer for Kante.

Obviously they want cash.

If we've really offered them Brozovic, I don't think we are anywhere near selling him to Bayern or anywhere else for that matter. I have a bad feeling we won't get the big midfield signing this window simply because we can't sell Brozovic. On the other hand, everything can happen quick if some dominos start to fall.

What were the previous two offers? Free loan and 2mln loan? Now waiting for the final one - 5mln loan + 40m option spreaded over 5 years :rollani:

Selling Brozovic to Monaco seems like the intended fund raising.

3 years ago Seri was one of the most highly sought midfielders in europe. Neat, tidy player/passer


We don't need a player like him though.

We should offer them Skrinair for straight swap, I bet they'll take it.

He is chelsea tier 1 / tier 2 at worst. and he also confirmed that we're offering brozo/eriksen for kante and chelsea said no.
sadly i dont think we can raise any cash, since the most probable sales we could get is from the rumoured kondogbia sales to PSG (we own like 25%)

I possibly rate Kante more than anyone else here, but this is just ridiculous. Kante is not worth that much. Surely this must be bullshit.


Report: Inter offered Eriksen and Brozo for Kante
By Football Italia staff

Inter are reportedly looking to offload Christian Eriksen and Marcelo Brozovic to create space for Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante at San Siro.

The Telegraph reveals the Blues have rejected a swap deal including the two Inter players, also because former coach Antonio Conte is at the other end of the trade.

The newspaper reports Inter are willing to offer Eriksen and Brozovic to get the French midfielder, but Conte’s controversial farewell has left a scar and the Londoners are not willing to enter negotiations with the Nerazzurri over an exchange deal.

Kante is at the top of Conte’s wish list, but the €60m price tag means Inter must sell to afford the former Leicester City man.

Eriksen and Brozovic could still be the key men to generate the required resources for a potential operation.

Football Italia are quoting the Guardian, who, unless Romano is writing for them, are a shitty source. Everybody chill their shit. FIF is living this transfer session particularly badly, but everyone apart from Chelsea are in the exact same position as us.

Juve don't even have a number 9 at the moment FFS :lol:

Edit: Aaaaaaand I didn't realise Matt Law had confirmed those offers. Never mind, everybody do lose your shit. I don't really know what we're doing anymore.

The coach has clearly been given carte blanche to control everything, and if you not aboard the Conte train one hundred percent, you're a hater, not a real fan, or you don't want the club you support to succeed. Even if it means actively making our squad worse for a coach that won't be here for more than a year.

Simple as.

These aren't cheap acquisitions, mind you. We might not have a whole lot to spend, but how we're spending it is CLEARLY used to satisfy every whim Conte seems to have.

Godin for Kolarov :lol:
Darmian on a four year deal :lol:

Don't have one.

There is no thinking when you are broke, options are limited, its just on which part of body you wanna land heading straight to a concrete floor. For some reason right now we are choosing to land on our head.

I don't believe one second we've offered Brozovic AND Eriksen for Kante. I believe we've offered Brozovic for Kante like it was reported yesterday (or earlier). Then the story was Chelsea also rejected Eriksen, but it wasn't clear had we even offered him to them.

From all the bullshit Marotta and Conte have been pulling off recently, the prospect of signing Kante is easily the most exciting.

Godin and Kolarov play on different sides of the field. Its Skriniar, D'ambrosio, Candreva and Hakimi on the right side. Kolarov will be mixed in on the left with Bastoni and Young. Darmian isnt going to feature much unless all hell breaks loose. Saying we got Kolarov for Godin is like saying we got Hakimi for Biraghi.

Lampard says Kante is fundamental for him.

I don't see how this would happen unless Marina tells Frank that we need to make money so you need just accept it and she pushes Kante out. I don't see Kante pursuing the transfer at all.
