I know there is no links to us currently, but I would like to see Singo as rcb. His contract end 2023, but there might be option to renew it with a year? I think Juric/Cairo would be interested for Pinamonti, Dimarco, Gags or Casadei + some money for both Bremer and Singo?

Awsome player and could also play as rwb if needed!
He has played mostly as right wing (RB/RWB), not central defence.

What is the update on the sale of both Bastoni, Skriniar and Dumfries?

Hoping we have some significant offers for Dumfries that will allow us to keep both Skriniar and Bastoni. The last update i had on Dumfries was a sale price in the vicnity of 40 to 60M

Otherwise, has PSG increased their offer for Skriniar to 80M or close to?

And with the above in mind - Do we have an update on Bremer, Milenkovic, Bellanova or any other defender we are linked with? If we sell Skriniar, i am hoping two CB's + the sale of Dumfries I would like Bellanova and someone like Molina.

Thats true, but I think he would be good with Bastoni and Bremer as rcb.

Dimarco was lb before he became lcb and Dambro was rb before he became rcb, Alaba was lb before he became cb… Did you know that Singo played as cb before was moved to rb? Dimarco, Dambro and Alaba as I know didn’t have that experience before they switched to cb role?

Or do you think Singo lacks something that would make him bad rcb? He is taller, faster, stronger than Dimarco/Dambro. He can also make good runs with the ball like Bastoni and he is good at marking, can cross/pass, has solid technique…

We could then sell Dumfries and get Bellanova. If Singo for some reason suck at rcb role he would be awsome rwb and fight with Bellanova for starting place. I think this would be exactly the right move to make as we are losing one of the best rcb in the world.

I think he's better suited to RWB because he's fast and strong and not that technical. While Dimarco is technical, he's def not strong. Bastoni is technical but IMO not that fast. Point is the best characteristics of Singo makes him wingback in Inzaghi's system.

When it comes to Dumfries/Bastoni sales, Bastoni was clear with club he's not going anywhere. Dumfries apparently hasn't had any offers. Inter has only got enquiries but what is the most important thing is offers to the player, not to the club.

I think he would be exactly that player we could use at rcb as he has played in that position in the past.

Where do you get that Singo is not technical? I think he is much more technical than Dumbo or Skriniar and not far from Dimarco or Bastoni?

He would give as that extra something that little magic and he can give cover if we play at higher line as he is fast.

He was a beast and a player with great potential but it has to be said, he's been absolute dogshit this year.
Just like Demiral! Inconsistency is the most common problem of Turkish ballers. But of course I prefer Demiral or Söyüncü over Milenkovic. Nevertheless my boy is Kaan Ayhan who's extremely underrated. He can also play as a RB and DM.

I have my doubts he'll get plenty of time with Alex Sandro and Kostic soon on his main position LB.

I would be excited with Udogie or Molina, but not with Cambiaso or Bellanova. These 2 are both on test year at Rube and us. If they don't succeed they will be instalments for those who will.

Acerbi's agent must be a mafioso who holds all embarassing scandals at his fingertips. Incredible that 34 years old mediocre defender is being chased by the champion and the runner-up of Italy.
