Maguire was 80m, and Bastoni is younger, more talented and higher ceiling.
Not sure why everyone is mentioning Maguire. He was good in Leicester. Also home grown. Sure 80 was too much but as far as I know Leicester was not in a position that they need to sell so milk them as much as you can.

Longori (the little Pedulla) reports we've taken a step towards Bellanova.
So the little prick?

I'll go ahead make my prediction. We're gonna lose 4 of our back 5 from last year. Perisic, Bastoni, De Vrij, and Dumfries. With the only one possibly staying being the worst option, SDV.

Yeah Maguire is not comparable. You mentioned three things which pushed his price so high (his level at Leicester, Leicesteri didn't have to sell, he's English).

I'd disagree.

Bastoni has been in form and should command that price. And Maguire being english shouldn't matter, the priority is suring up your backline not the nationality of X player. As for leicester not needing to sell, goes hand in hand with how desperate club is willing to buy. If they need a stable, talented centre back that can easily play for another 10 years, then Bastoni is that player.

The question is how much is he worth to City, United, Newcastle or Spurs?

He was good this year. I think he is one of the fastest player in the league. Hakimi vibes. I like him more than Cambiaso, but Udogie seems like bigger talent.

I dont understand the strategy.

There was no news regarding anything on the right flank suddenly - Dumfries stays, Bellanova is his back up. Dumfries is sold, Bellanova is a starter?

As for left - Perisic replacement, are we signing Kostic, Udogie or Cambiasso? Alot of gaps to fill and not a lot of money to cover. Where is Ja, I need Ja Rule to make sense of all this.

Di Marzio - Inter want Milenkovic

Initial contacts have already been made in recent days and Milenkovic's profile is climbing the hierarchy of Inter executives. Furthermore, the possible arrival of the Serbian defender of Fiorentina does not depend on the negotiations for Bremer: Inter, in fact, wants to try to buy two defenders, since Ranocchia is out (his contract is about to expire), but this will depend also how many exits will be made.


Not trusting Zinho yet i see.

Following this club requires you to realize that we will never produce a meaningful player, who contributes to the club, out of our youth academy. Sell them all for plusvalenza.

It's not like a ranocchia replacement needs to play many games.
That's in an ideal situation. But you need to plan according to the worst situation which is serious injury to one of the main 3. In that scenario, yes he will need to play alot of games and you can't trust him because he'll probably break before your main player breaks.

Ranocchia was 5th choice. Would only play lots of games if 2 defenders were out for a period of time

I don't think there was an order for our defence on the bench. DD was Skriniar's sub, Dimarco was Bastoni's sub and Ranocchia was De Vrij's. And whoever is missing their allocated sub plays. That's how I saw it.
