Cancelo and Rafinha were Sabatini's purchases. I think, he even said that he proposed to get Icardi sold, and with the money to buy Cancelo and Rafinha, but the Chinese refused.
Can we ever truthfully know they were his purchases when this was said after he left? Scouts generally don't give interviews and claim deals so we will never know how much baccin was involved or not.

He was sporting director back then, and he made the final decision, to get them or not (approved by the Zangs of course). Does he personally proposed them, or somebody from the staff or scouts recommended them to him, it's a different story.

Maybe you are right! But the results speaks for themselves!

Skriniar, Bastoni, Brozo, Lautaro - you can say they are the results of good scouting. Barella not so much. 3 years of Serie A experience, italian NT starter, one of the best midfielder in Serie A. Barely a result of good scouting. Hakimi the same.
That`s it. Maybe you can throw here Zaniolo (as an exemple of good scouting). Dumfries also.

J. Mario, Barbosa, Dalbert, Vecino, Gags, Lazaro, even Politano. I don`t put Sensi here because the talent was there, but not the body. Correa is still open. He could turn useful.
As you see the results are pretty meh. Overall less than 50% which is pretty bad. Try now Milan! Way better!

But as you say: we need more "deals like Asllani". This is the only path forward, if we want to see anothe La grande Inter.
Another aspect. We need to develop these players. A talent who is not developed won`t be a good player. I know someone (Cafecordoba) said here then it is not the obligation of the coach to develop players, only the results. No,no, no, from now on, one of the coach obligation need to be player development.
Assllani is yet to be proven, I really hope he'll get there but we watch more than enough players over the past decade rocking trough preseason and then fail, so lets see, hope he does good...

Nothing going on in this department? The midfield depth is quite pathetic.

Are you not reading the news? Club has financial issues, they did not even afford to hire a photographer for the yearly squad photos: https://www.inter.it/en/teams

I`m sure Marotta is already planning for bosman moves in January, as in 2023 there will be plenty of midfielders running out of contract like Aouar, Malinovskiy, Rafinha, etc.

So is there anyone free? Or any Lazio reject Inzaghi likes. Now that Micky is out i am sure we would all love to have another 35 year old.
Fuck these young kids, Agoume and Casadei.

Matic is already Roma's player, but Parolo fits perfectly - ex Lazio, old and washed and Inzaghi will approve.
