I will translate from german:
The business makes the cash flow, the accountant makes the profit.
In the SA/FFP era, we didn't have cash flow issues, but we needed to "make" a profit. So came, all our businesses. We "sold" Caprari to Sampdoria for 15m before 30. June and then bought Skrniar for 35m. Obviously that was 15m profit only in books, because there was no cash flow. The same story with Nainggolan, Bastoni and all the "child trafick" of Ausilio. All the primavera players "sold" for big sums, only someone could believe they were future Ballon d'Or material.
Now my friends, we have real problems. We have cash flow problems, no money to pay the bills, salaries and other shit, in our accounts. We have to sell one of our top talents for cash. I don't think plusvalenza is the principal criterium. If someone offer 60m for Lautaro, payable 12m per year for 5 years and Hakimi 70m with 50m upfront, I believe Hakimi will be sold. Even if the plusvalenza would be better with Lautaro's sell. We need money to run the business.
It is sad we need to sell Hakimi. For me he, Barella and Bastoni would be the last to sell, but if the only real offer comes for Hakimi, we don't have many choices. And by offer I mean, something real like a email, a fax or even a fucking pigeon, not rumours.
