It's normal that we are looking for Darmian successor. However, if he continues to deliver and consistently give good performance then I doubt Simone will drop him.
He may not flashy with technical ability but for sure he set the professionalism bar at high level, if any other player in the same position couldn't surpass his quality, then they simply doesn't deserve to start, simple as that.

Don't have one.
The disrespect to Darmian here is incredible given what kind of 1.5 years we've seen from him.
There is no disrespect, everybody respects what he gives us, BUT we all know he is a utility player as well, good all around, maybe even excels more in defense than offense, but that's about it. Let's not pretend for the sake of just being nice it's otherwise.

We need another di marco, hakimi, perisic type for the right side if we want to get to higher level. Having said all of this, he is more than fine as a starter in the role pavard currently plays, with that I don't have problems.

I'd stay away from Bruno. The guy is too inconsistent. Besides of that, he's also a very lazy player. Everyone knows his technical ability, but that's sadly not enough, especailly for our scheme that requires a very strict discipline. Our players aren't the most skilled out there, but being strong as a group and having players whom take responsibility of their roles, is what made Inter such competitive and rock solid.

Bruno is 29, has a transfer fee and is 2x the salary of our captain and best player........

I know in FIFA he would be our top rated player...... but this would be a Vidic level flop here

He's already been unspectacular in Serie A.
I'd rather get Koopmeiners if there's any budget to operate and Bruno is under consideration

Koopmeiners rumored asking price is 60mln. I doubt that Man U will ask similar fee for Bruno, but who knows.

No he does not. Gross net difference strikes again.
7net is still too much though.

I wouldn't want Bruno anywhere near this team. He's toxic for his environment by the footages I regularly see of him throwing an tantrum. If we thought Barella was bad just watch Bruno for 1 game. His salary would also be a problem. We have other priorities this transfer window then add another midfielder.

Till recently people wanted to spend money on another midfielder and I said that I can only see us bringing someone without paying a clause. Hopefully not Rabiot.

And yet I said he is one of my favourite players, such disrespect. Can we at least agree that we should give some other players more starts over Darmian or do y'all want Darmian to play 45 full matches next season? We need to have a gradual transition in less minutes for Darmian (so that other, younger players can get more minutes and get better) and it should start next season.

There is a need for a seventh midfielder of some (likely inexpensive) persuasion. This campaign Inter were very lucky with injuries in this area and there were only a handful of games missed by Hakan and hardly any that I recall for Barella and Miki. With Frattesi and Asllani the only others getting any serious minutes, this meant we operated with basically 5 midfielders for the entire season.

I don't think they can be as lucky again next season and they are likely to be a man down as it stands with the Zielinski arrival offset by Sensi and Klaessen both leaving. These dead rubber games should have been an opportunity to give some playing time to Akinsanmiro to see if he could be a fixture in the squad next season.

With Zelinski and maybe Fabbian we might be set if we decide to keep trusting in Asllani and Fratesi

Id like us to be linked to Ricci, but im still happy with links to Saralegui from Boca

I think Hidemasa Morita from Sporting fits our playstyle a lot, but does not have extra character add to it.
This only make sense if we want to get rid of Asllani, even I think he can play in Mihki's role as well.

Just not sure if he can adjust to Serie A.

With Zielinski coming in on a free, I feel like we're the best equipped in the midfield department.

Resources should be directed to other areas while working on Kephren Thuram free transfer in 2025.
Funnily enough, CdS says we want him in 2025 on a free. Relatively dogshit source but I’m already dreaming.

I would imagine that means a big departure though? Although Mkhi would be gone then so Thuram/Zielinski - Hakan/Asllani - Barella/Frattesi feels illegally good
