Why? give his spot to one of the youth player we have out on loan and save huge on wages. He will get a extension the coach likes him.

D'Am def should get one.

if Kolarov gets one I am no longer a fan of this team. Seriously even if we magically win every game 70-0 I just can't wrap my brain around how we gave him a contract extension the 1st time. Dude had like 3 minutes in 2020.
Kolarov can go fuck himself and fuck Conte for bringing him in. Rano, however, I'd have no problem extending as long as his wage is cut in half or some shit. He's been solid whenever we needed him to step up.

I had feeling if we win Scudetto or win against Liverpool, Inzaghi will request Luiz Filipe.

This rumour makes no sense. It has been reported Inzaghi sees Dimarco more as a lcb and he's looking for a lwb. Well Bensebaini can't play as a wingback.

He can play as a lcb in a back 3 and a defensive lb in a back 4. He's defensively solid, he's decent going forward and he can be a good option if you're looking for a defensive lb in a back 4. But he certainly can't cover the whole side.

After Sassuolo, now Inter want buy all Mönchengladbach player? Ginter, Bensebaini, and Marcus Thuram?

Maybe we are just exploring the options. Dimarco has played mostly as LWB this season anyway. While he's not great at that, he might still be our rotation LWB if we can handle LCB situation in another way. That way we don't have to buy two LWBs next summer if we decide not to extend Perisic.

Endless options for the management.

Inter cool interest in Digne

Inter Milan have cooled their interest in Everton’s Lucas Digne.
This is because Everton are not interested in loaning him out or swapping for Inter players.
Everton only want to sell in order to raise money for new additions and stay within Financial Fair Play parameters.
Digne has not played since the heavy home defeat to Liverpool on December 1.
And Everton have signed another left-back in Vitaliy Mykolenko already this month.

Skriniar
Based on current rumours, our defensive situation in 2022/23 could look like:

  • Kolarov, D'Ambrosio, Perisic, De Vrij - OUT
    • I know Ranocchia is also rumoured to be out but I seem to remember him signing a 1+1 and he's been very solid this season.

  • Ginter, Bremer, Kostic/Digne - IN

So we line up something like:

Kostic/Digne (Dimarco) --------------------------------------------Dumfries (Darmian)
Bastoni (Dimarco/Darmian) - Bremer (Ranocchia) - Skriniar (Ginter)


We might be better in the grand scheme of things to be fair, but losing De Vrij would be a big blow.

Inter was never in the race when Chelsea entered it. Chillwell is out for the season and they need LB/LWB. Chelsea can buy Digne outright, we can't. And Everton wants to sell, not loan.

It wouldn't hurt to use Dimarco as LWB backup and to get a new LCB backup. At least Dimarco gets playing time if he keeps covering both backup positions.
