It’s no good starting a guy in two years time who hardly got to play in that period, he would be shaky and out of match form… It wasn’t a huge issue getting Sommer, Handanovic etc. to perform their first season, the idea a gk needs to be slowly introduced is just an odd idea when looking at what we done for quite some time. Sommer is likely not going anywhere the next two seasons.

I much rather have a gk who played as starting gk and not knowing the team then one who hardly played for 1-2 seasons but know the team.
Handanovic: Inter wasn't exactly at the top of their form, we weren't winning anything etc.

Sommer: season veteran with shit tons of experience including NT and continental games. Not comparable at all to a player we're about to sign.

I don't get where are you getting this "hardly played for 1-2 seasons". I am suggesting a scenario we had with Onana basically. Bring in a guy who plays in Coppa and maybe few CL league phase games (Onana started in CL games, but Handa was phased out at some point completely, due to injury). We sign Bento/Martinez, and it's not going to be he's hardly played for 1-2 seasons. They are starters in their respective clubs. They would play a little at Inter in their first season. Sommer's contract is up next summer so they'd take the reigns starting in the summer of 2025. That is one season when they'd play a bit less.

You are making this "not playing" a much bigger thing than what it would really be.

Handanovic was faced out exactly of the reason I stated earlier, dropping form and injury if not for that reality Onana would have been rotting on the bench and never had a shot as first choice. So unless Sommer replicate Handanovic poor form, then a replacement will happen over the summer mercato and an unproven gk or one who has not played much for 1-2 seasons will not be picked at this level for the following season, no coach at this level will be happy with that scenario. They prefer experience and one who has actually games under the belt not one who played a few CI games, and no he won’t be given a single game in CL as long Sommer performs.

This isn’t a position you typically gamble with

Why do you keep saying 1-2 seasons when it will be at most 1 season? It's one season as 2nd keeper at one of the biggest clubs in the world, learning the ropes. You keep exaggerating it with the "1-2 seasons" without any reason. It's a long-term thinking. And has nothing to do with gambling.

Moretto reports the Grifone are admirers of Inter striker Satriano, so the Argentinean could be included in the deal - even if he’s not the only player Inter can possibly offer to Genoa.

Martinez, 26, is a former Barcelona academy player and joined Genoa from RB Leipzig on a permanent transfer in 2023 after a one-year loan at Marassi.
¬ making a sweet plusvalenza on Satriano could be too tampting, after all we only need a backup keeper for now. If he does not turn out good enough, he could stay as reserve?

Is his footwork anything close to Onana?

Don't have one.
These names all seem like a smokescreen for bento tbh. I refuse to believe we are going through this many names and having meaningful contacts with all of them. :lol: Something's off...

Don't remember the last time we were being linked with this many dudes for one position, it's like every day a new name pops out and from trustful sources as well :lol:

It does feel a bit that way, doesn’t it? Let’s see if it works because we’re not offering a cent over 15mil for Bento. I believe that’s our hard budget unfortunately.

I don’t expect we get Bento. He has international atention now after making his national team debut. Will most likely cost 25 mln. We don’t have that kind of money sadly.

Di Marzio says we’ve offered 13+2 for Martinez. I’m not sold, but then I’ve barely seen him play.

I have zero idea about Martinez. 15M and Di Gregorio was 18? Something is off here.

No even knew who Di Gregorio was prior to this season. Its hilarious how people are second guessing a management with decades of proven track record when it comes to goalkeeping choices.
