I only trust Fabrizio Romano, as I don't know backround and sources of others like Schira. Can someone reccomend reliable sources to follow, other then Romano?

And €60mil is not rich offer for Bastoni, that's just stupid.

Bastoni should be bringing in Virgil van Dijk type monies not Ben White offers. Suning owners are running Inter and their merchandise, the players, like some cheap retail store ... .oh wait thats what they are: sodding shop clerks.

Selling Bastoni would (some fucking how) be more idiotic than selling Hakimi. Other than Skriniar and Brozovic, I think everybody else is sellable before Bastoni.

He's almost unique in world football, a 6ft+ left-footed CB, with attacking movements akin to a wingback and a ridiculously cultured left foot that is capable of producing 50 yard pings, pin-point crosses and long range shots. Oh, and he can defend well too. He should be worth minimum £85m, not this paltry 60m euros I'm seeing bandied about.

I can't think of anyone remotely adequate to replace him, never mind someone who would cost less than 20m, which is AT BEST what we would be able to reinvest. Fucking ridiculous notion.

There are only Romano, Di Marzio and Sky for Italian football really. People call them tap in merchants but that's what reliability entails.

GdS reports anything and everything with a shit ton of sensationalism and no credibility. TT and CdS just don't have a clue.

There are also clubs' mouthpieces like Agresti and Vitiello but there stories are re-reported by Romano within seconds anyway.

Yeah, if one wants just the sure things, which are very likely to happen, follow Romano and Di Marzio, no others.

For us, who want to actually follow the market and what's happening there, pedullas, biasins and the grande master lady boss h.grimes is the way to go hahaha. These report stuff (so stuff might not be in advanced stage yet) way earlier than the tap-in merchants.

I have no idea about enjoy. Stopped following him in 2020, he gave me too much hope with his lineups.
And i have no idea about Fede, did not notice his tweets in a long time... i just checked and i cant even find his account.

Fede is Michael from this forum. He mostly does what for example Inter_xtra account has done recently, ie. translate stuff from different sources (Di Marzio, Pedulla, GdS etc etc). Great work in itself, but it's not some independent sourced information.

Michael is always more active during summer transfer windows.

Suning need to seriously think of the ramifications of continually selling big players. The big deal with suning when they came in was to increase inters global brand, specifically in Asia. Well most people who become fans don't become die hard fans. They become casual fans who, if they stick around long enough, will become die hard fans.

When you continually sell big players, sign shitty replacements, lose out on titles, lose to rivals, etc casual fans go away. Less casual fans means less viewership, less product exposure, less brand deals, less merchandise sales, etc. You then have to spend more in marketing to make up for the worse on field product. I mean is this not business management 101?

Juve could get away with this bullshit because they just dominated the league for a decade. Suning win one title and immediately start dismantling the team? No dumb I AM INTER campaign is making you fans. Winning does. Like holy shit what is Zhang smoking.

During a meeting between Inter and Perisic's agent, the Nerazzurri raised their offer to 5 million + bonuses to reach 6 million a year. While waiting for an answer, Inter is convinced that it did everything possible and received a "yes" from the Croatian.
Perisic was contacted by phone: this is the promise of a new agreement.
