Selling Hakan is a bad idea. He literally can play in two different positions and his wage and commitment are decant aside of his performance which has been above average.
Also he rarely get injured and always is available.

Since I don't believe to having untouchable players, so, selling him with the right price, ~60m, wouldn't be bad idea anymore.

I would take Santos from Chelsea on loan + obligation, they anyway have too many midfielders.

We just sold Fabbian to Bologna for 5 mln.

We have the right of buyback for 12 mln.

Go Thiago Motta, make him a star.
That’s a great deal all around. In Thiago Motta we trust.

We cant sell Hakan at this point...Mkhi is old and cant play always...Aslani looks promising, but if you lose hakan you will need another quality player to be starter....

No one is selling Hakan at this point. There's no rumors of us selling him.

Everyone is for sale even the last day of the market, it just require a substantial enough offers on the table.

No one is going to offer the amount that Inter will demand at this point of the market. If someone make an offer it’s likely no more then 20-30m and Inter will never consider such offer at this point, I doubt we will listen to anything under 40m to be frank.

For players to move at this point requires they are either unwanted, contract set to expire in a season or some ridiculous offer.

I also highly doubt hakan is ready to move on from europe...
Seems a lot to me like the dude still wants to prove to everybody he s one of the best midfielders out there and you just cant do that if you play in fucken saudi arabia

Can already see we sell Hakan and loan Jorginho with obligation.
This was my first thought too when I read interest of Hakan.

Such a Beppe move. But he's currently irreplacable. Brozovic role is superimportant. Can't mess with it at the end of August. You can't risk the season chasing profits all the time.

Hakan kinda choked on the final though, he’s not big game player. Dont get me wrong, not saying he’s not good, haaland also disappear on several finals, unlike mbappe who carried the whole team on wc final

Well, you always have to bear in mind that what might look like a choke job could just be that the other side had a lot of quality and Hakan couldn't do anything of note.

A choke job from a midfielder would be him losing most of the possessions, having bad free kicks and having shit passes all night. He did better than that.

Yeah, "choke job" is a typical exaggeration in Internet talk. There was nothing choking in Hakan's play in the final. He just wasn't at his best in that game.

Exactly, there’s some player like dimarco who when the stakes at the highest would perform 120%. Or there’s someone like lakaka who completely shrink from the moment. Mkhi or onana for example did better. And i feel like hakan even though as not as bad as lakaka also have some mental block

So are we saying Haaland has a mental block as well because he doesn't have goals in 8 semifinals and finals, or is he just being overly marked to kill off any dangers coming from him. Yet, he was doing a lot of other things to make it difficult for other teams, even if he doesn't score.

Same with Hakan. He played in a very important position against City. No, he wasn't having a 10/10 performance, but if he had a total choke job, we wouldn't only lose by one goal. We have to be fair, it's not easy playing as a DLP against City.

It seems to me many easily criticize 1-2 performances without taking into account contexts and developments. The only thing Hakan is a bit off atm is his freekick.

And a choke job from a striker: exhibit Lukaku :lol:


Agreed on Hakan. Plus, we were overwhelmed in the middle and they had Stones and Rodri to chase our guys defensively whilst we had to bother with De Bruyne/Foden who are quality and quick respectively.

But the other problem there is that Hakan is quite limited to what he can offer deep in the pitch. He hustles which is great, but he doesn't have the right movement for a regista. Which is also why he has to make moves faster when he gets the ball.

Yeah, all that was also seen yesterday, kinda. We have a good midfield overall, but we also don't really have a diverse midfield. It's made to play a certain way and we don't really have a Stones or a KdB.
