I'll refrain from commenting until @Il Drago opines.
All u need to know is that BVB fans view Akanji as we view Gagliardini or Vecino.

Also, paying 30M for a player that has 1 year left on his contract, that he doesnt want to renew is retarded.

Sounds like bullshit to me.

Fabio Santini then added: "They told me that Inter, in order to have Kalidou Koulibaly at their disposal, would be willing to offer both Correa and an economic balance to Napoli. The Nerazzurri defense, should this operation take place, would be very strong. Simone Inzaghi could in fact have Bremer and Koullibaly at his disposal, perhaps the two strongest central players in the championship ". Bremer, we remember, is from an Inter perspective, but it has not yet been made official

It's now 3rd time Koulibaly is linked to Inter. ADL doesn't want to sell to Italy so interest doesn't mean anything.

Replacing De Vrij + Skriniar with Koulibaly and Bremer is the only scenario were we actually improve our defence this summer.

I have a feeling that Koulibaly him self is also loyal towards Napoli fans and for Napoli, so I don’t see him at any other Italian club than Napoli.

We also try to cut cost, so I expect Bremer and that other new cb will have lower wages than De Vrij and Skriniar currently have?

Yeah, that's why Akanji is someone Inter is interested in. He'd be available for Growth Decree tax cut.

Tbh can't say anything how good or poor he is.

Ah yes. When your only criteria for signing footballers is:
- old
- free
- cheap
- eligible for growth decree

Read from another forum that Akanji was actually BVB best player at the start of last season but then some knee problems and contract negotiations made the latter part of the season not so good. I was at the impression he was a complete turd (Gags comparisons) but reading comments from BVB fan, my impression changed.

You sure you didn't read that from @rfU ?

Finally a good news, seems that Carboni will be aggregated to the team during the pre season, to be tested as Gosens substitute.
Instead of Cambiaso, this looks perfectly fine to me.
If the guy is not worth it, then we can look around before this market window expires.

You are confusing the two carboni's. It's the younger brother who will be part of the preseason. He plays midfield. The lb one is expected to be loaned out.

Aehm...you're right, I've checked and seems that Franco will be loaned and Valentin will do the pre season with the first team.
My bad, thanks!

Bild links us to Akanji.

We've probably made an inquiry but that's it.
Nevermind rumours from Germany when it comes to italian clubs. Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin believe that Borussia Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji isn’t a player who Inter are interested in signing this summer.

Targets are clear: Bremer & Milenkovic.

De Ligt to Bayern, Bremer to Juve, Akanji to Inter... wanna bet?
Yes I can gladly take on that bet. Bremer will NOT end up at Juve. What are you willing to bet?
