Sure but Godin's market value is like 5M at most...

I mean, absolutely no to giving Bastoni over. But seeing as they've let us know that Cancelo is up for grabs, it may be something to consider.

Rumours suggest that City and Barca have made informal offers for Bastoni. I am not a bit surprised, this kid has been awesome this season. He plays with confidence and maturity which is beyond his years - its hard to believe he is only 20 and on his first season at a big club. He has been the young revelation of the season, even though Esposito may have grabbed a few more headlines.

That loan move to Parma worked well last season. And now he is taking it to the next level at Inter. This is the template for youth development, even though most of the time it won't work as well.

Cream rises to the top. Problem is we loan out shit players like Karamoh and expect them to overperform and somehow miraculously turn to gold overnight. Our scouting needs to improve drastically. Less Lazaros - more Bastonis.

When we loan the players to shit clubs no wonder they forget to play football.

Keep Bastoni here and give him minutes imho.

I guess what I was trying to say was that when you loan a youth star to a small team to get minutes, if he shows promise, get him back the next season and give him a shot at winning a starting spot at Inter. Thats what worked with Bastoni. Where we sometimes falter is when a youth star is showing promise on a loan move, we either use him as a counterpart in a deal or loan him for another year. And that promise never rises to the next level.

We should loan out Esposito for 6 months or a year, to a team which will start him. And if he continues to show promise, get him back as the 4th striker at Inter. Give him a proper shot at taking his promise to the next level at Inter. This may not work always, but makes more sense as a development strategy.

Scored a goal but failed to defend a goal so it is even. Still much better player than Godin who gave up possession every time he touched the ball.

I blame Candreva for the goal more than I blame Bastoni. Haven't analyzed a replay though

I blame Bastoni more. That's the core stuff of a defender. Defend and not allow your guy to score right in front of you. Bastoni needs to be more aggressive in defending situations IMO. He made his nice goal back right away with that conceded goal.

The whole goal was obviously a series of errors by our players starting from the fact Lecce was able to have the possession of the ball for so long and kept their attack alive.

Not ever a swap between Bastoni and Cancelo. Cancelo is more lika a show-pony, Bastoni is the real deal.

We had the chance to get in posession sooner but our players just watched the ball going from right to left like nothing is happening.

I'd put more blame on Skriniar than Candreva there.

Candreva was the one who left his area without even touching the ball and he is the one who is supposed to be experienced.

We had 3 CBs in the penalty area and a world class goal keeper. But rather than blame the defence, I feel the entire team should be to blame since we are a unit. Lecce shouldn't have been allowed to get the ball to that point.

Of course not but as that is eventually gonna happen in most matches that the opponent will get attacks like that, defence is the one which should do its work when called upon. It's not like it was Cristiano Ronaldo who scored the goal with a perfectly-timed run.

As a general note you are of course right that we shouldn't slope opponent to play like they were allowed after our goal.

City apparently offered Cancelo straight up and we rejected.

I'm glad. I wouldn't lose Bastoni for Cancelo. Cancelo is a talented player but there has to be something there given he didn't last much time here, Juventus, or City. Spaletti spoke before about him having issues at training and many things I've read indicated similar type of issues at Juventus. I would have thought he would have fit Guardiola's City well given Guardiola doesn't ask for much defending from his fullbacks, but looks like he's still on the outs if they are willing to get rid of him after only 6 months.

I love Cancrlo but City’s got to be kidding us with that offer :lol:

I’d take Cancelo for 30 million.

We’re overrating this Bastoni dude, he looks comfortable with ball but he’s late on crosses constantly and we’re receiving goals very often from that reason.

All this noise reminds me on Ranochia when he just landed here. Bastoni is little bit faster, left footed and most importantly, have better teammates and coaches so we won’t ruin him fast like Ranochia.

we have all praised him over the last months, and with good reason. but just like it's ok to praise him when he deserves it, it also has to be pointed out that he made two mistakes in the last 2 Serie A matches.

they went almost unnoticed because against atalanta handa saved the penalty, against lecce bastoni was the one who score for us.

he's young, and he will learn. but he still needs to work a lot, probably more on concentration than other.

Its reminding me about the discussion earlier in the Esposito thread.

Young players will make mistakes and maybe sometimes will cost you points but we have no guarantee older players don't make mistakes. When they are good enough, they are young enough. For example last Sunday Ajax played a 17-year old as a central midfielder, he was one of the best players on the field and scored an very important goal which led to the win. Now I'm not saying we should only field youngsters and I know the level of pressure isn't comparable to Inter (although kinda in a way because at Ajax you also need to win every game). In the Dutch papers the player was praised but not exorbitant because he's good enough and then it's normal he starts the game over an Romanian (Razvan Marin) and Mexican International (Edson Alvarez).


Same goes for Bastoni, Esposito, Agoume etc if they are the same level of the senior players we have right now please let them play and grow. It would be great to see some youngsters coming from the Primavera. Right now our best defense is Skriniar-De Vrij-Bastoni. Then we should play them even though that means Godin, which is/was 1 of the best CB's in the last 10 years. The problem with young defenders and/or goalkeepers is that if they make a mistake it usually leads to a goal so they get way more exposed then for example an attacker missing a big chance. Bastoni is young, Italian, left-footed and has a lot of potential, he also seems to love the club. The mistake against Atalanta is a mistake from a rookie and I'm confident he will not make the same foul again but you have to accept the fact he will make these mistakes if you field him. Defending is mostly getting the experience of certain situations and handle them better every time you get in those situations.
