I think i've posted ones, back in 2020 in the mercato section. I've been lurking around some time now, and back in 2020 (i think), the former player section was locked down. Only members could visit it. I was wondering what you guys where saying about Icardi, and made an account. Never thought of posting again until this week!

Never been a big fan of Denzel to be honest. I have lots of respects for the guy though! Became a pro when he was already 18. Played as an amateur before he joined Sparta Rotterdam. Everyone thought he would fail. Made a transfer to Heerenveen two years later. Everyone thought he wasn't good enough. After one year the guy was awarded with a transfer to PSV. Nobody gave him a change there. Guess what? Became captain, international and deserved a transfer to Inter. No he doesn't have a great first touch, he isn't technical gifted, hasn't great defensional awareness etc. But he has a drive i've almost never seen before. So maybe he surprises everyone again at Inter.

So, Bensebaini, anyone? What's he like?

His contract ends in 2023 so lower fee than normally.

Judging by the youtube slices nothing special, but he has good transfer value, I think for a reason. He is left-footed and has a decent height of 1.86m Most likely he will be taken under Bastoni, and on the flank will play Dimarco and Kostic.

You're football vision was highly esteemed before that post but talking about Chivu saved you from the list. ;)

Please no...I always get irritated when I saw him play. Can't defend, can't pass and is a arrogant prick.

Never forget the match he played against Sweden with the U21 I thought?

Bring on Ginter, Luiz Felipe and Milinkovic. 2 are free and one has a clause for 15m and ensure we've got the best CBs in the league.

Obviously we won't have enough playing time to satisfy all 3, but we can easily sell Ginter or Luiz Felipe and bring in profits.

Wishful thinking? Maybe, but I don't see what's stopping us from doing that. Bringing in free agents and sell them a year later with profit.
Interesting, however sounds a bit of an overkill unless we truly sell De Vrij.

Ginter is coming, I can feel it.

Luiz Felipe currently earns a net of €650,000 per season, and he is asking for an increase to €2.5 million net per season in order to stay on with the Biancocelesti.

Gazzetta dello Sport just reported that the 24-year-oldLuiz Felipe is the Nerazzurri’s chief target should de Vrij leave the club. Funny, as I was reading about Bremer until now.

I wasn't convinced by Luiz Felipe a few years ago but he's impressed me the last two seasons when fit. But that seems to be a problem with him. He's frequently injured.

Wouldn`t come here as a starter anyway, so no harm?


How much is he earn?
Not sure if relevant. I doubt Chel$ki are losing both Rudiger and Christensen in the same window for free.

Christensen has continued to convey that he wants to continue at Chelsea despite the interest of other clubs like Barcelona, but the 25-year-old was still unhappy with the £140,000 per week salary on offer, which is much less than what the club’s attackers are earning.

Christensen was also wary that if he signed a 5-year deal, he would have less leverage in future contract negotiations once he turns 30, because his career will be seen as being in its latter stages. Therefore, Christensen initially insinuated that he would be open to signing a new 3-year contract. However, the financial side of things still continues to be a stumbling block, and in the meantime, after some contemplation, Christensen is now open to signing a longer deal.

There are now negotiations over a new 4-year deal and that leads to hope that a resolution can still be found with some compromise from both sides. However, there is also a feeling that Tuchel’s admonishing ultimatum may have left a sour taste in the discussions, so that could prove to be a factor in how this saga eventually pans out.

I totally expect them to extend and Sky has written the same: Romano insists that Chelsea are confident Christensen will sign the new contract to remain at Stamford Bridge beyond June 2022.

As it should be.

Unlike Uni, I get less and less appreciative the more I see Felipe. Not very tactically sound or disciplined, brash and temperamental, loads of yellow cards, and right now Lazio are conceding for the heck of it. He's got the physical skills, but hasn't developed much if anything the last two years.

I'd take him for depth for free, but him and Ginter at the same time is overkill.
