Sky DE are saying we've agreed terms with Kostic, and are awaiting to finalise the Hakimi sale to make an offer to Eintracht. I imagine we'll try to throw Lazaro in there.

I was kinda hoping we'd have both Kostic and Hakimi T_T

Di Marzio - Inter meeting with agent of Emerson Royal. He is the first choice to replace Hakimi.
These deals sound typical Marotta-esque. There must be some negotiations underground to avoid auction, before every teams know we just collected a lot of cash.

Just hope the one who leaves is Lautaro instead of Hakimi.

For me the best case scenario would be:

-you sell Lautaro for 80-90m and Perisic for 10m
-you keep Hakimi, you sign Depay on a free and you sign Kostic for 20-25

And then i wake up from the dream. :D

Which to be fair, is something I could see Marotta doing, much like the Pogba transfer at Juve. But it'll never happen, I imagine Suning will just pocket the 80m.

Depay is going to Rube. We should sell Lautaro to Barca for cash and Royal and then sell Hakimi, buy Kostić and Raspadori.

According to Edu Pidal (reliable) Inter and Milan are interested in Odriozola who isn't in Ancelotti plans.

i like him a lot. Would be cheaper than Emerson Royal.

Id take him and Kostic over Emerson and Emerson.

- - - Updated - - -

Di Marzio - Inter has to give Barcelona at least 25M for Emerson Royal.

Rumours about Inter wanting to get Tagliafico intensives, at least in Holland. Apparently he will only cost 12M. I'm a big fan of Tagliafico but in a 4-3-3 not as a wingback in a 3-5-2. Technically and defensively he is good but he doesn't have the ability to dribble past a man or anything like that. He's playing good attacking wise because at Ajax he can use the overlaps to create dangerous moments. But he still is much much better than Emerson for example. He also has an Italian passport so he wouldn't take the non-eu slot.

A week ago, there were rumours in Argentina Zanetti had already contacted Tagliafico about a potential move to Inter. I have the same fear about Tagliafico as well. Good option for a back 4 but i am afraid he would be insufficient in a back 3. I am afraid he would more suited for the lcb role than wingback role. I'd rather go for Firpo if Barca are willing to let him go on loan.

We don't really know if Simone Inzaghi goes for 3 at the back.

I think there's a good chance considering our squad is built for it and he's used it for the last 3-4 years.

He was using a 4-3-3 in 2017, maybe?

How big is the chance with this squad and no money we aren't going to play 3-5-2?

The German reports insist Eintracht Frankfurt have set a price-tag of €20-25m for Kostic.

However, Sportitalia assure there is only interest in the player and he is by no means a primary target, let alone agreed personal terms with the Nerazzurri. :eek:kay:

Tempting price for sure, but Marotta can do an even better late-summer job for Palmieri :yao2:

EDIT: It seems not, as Chelsea could unilaterally activate an option to extend Inter and Napoli target Emerson Palmieri’s contract by a year, Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia aired earlier this afternoon. :epicwin:

Given that we have a debt of 30 million on Hakimi, his sale looks pointless. Royal and Kostic would be worth 50. We still have a hole of 70m, we'll have to sell Lautaro as well.
It's a question of which is better:
Hakimi (Darmian) - Dimarco (Young)
Or
Royal(Damian) - Kostic(Young).

Schira - Inter are monitoring Lille’s right fullback Mehmet Zeki Çelik as a possibile Hakimi’s replacement. Tonight Inter sports director Piero Ausilio will be watching the turkish player during EURO2020 game Italy-Turkey.

Di Marzio - Radu is a very concrete idea .

this was not hard to guess.

Romano - Inter are considering to sign Stefan Radu as new centre back - he’s free agent after many years at Lazio.
