Not buying into these rumours at all until I see some official announcement or something. Can't see any way in hell we sell basto.
Journalists are just making shit up out of their ass and Inter fans are biting it

So who came up with this bastoni bullshit? Which source?
The source itself is probably bullshitting, but logic would tell us that Bastoni is the second most likely player to be sold behind lautaro.

Barella is viewed as a future captain and won't be sold. Skriniar won't net nearly the value as Bastoni due to age.

Plus, assuming Bremer is brought in for Pinamonti and cash, we won't need to sign a replacement for Bastoni, we'd just keep De Vrij. If Lautaro is sold we'll have to spend 30-40 million on a replacement(Scammacca).

Spurs having Conte and UCL isn't a wonderful combination for us.

Bremer can't replace Bastoni. Bastoni is a lot more than just a defender for Inter. Bremer can't replace Bastoni passing or his forward runs. Replacing Bastoni would be a lot harder than people imagine. Freaking Chiellini named him as his heir in NT. The kid is special. Also Bastoni is on a low salary so it doesn't even make sense from a financial point of view.

If you go with a Skriniar-De Vrij-Bremer defensive trio then you simply can't play from the back.

If you have to sell someone for big money better sell Lautaro.

Though Bastoni needs an extension next summer, as his contract is up in 2024.

But as Il Drago said, Bastoni is rare species in football world. CB who can attack. Someone like Skriniar does that too in our system but he simply sucks in attacking. Bastoni instead treathens the opponent with his movement and ball playing.

Bremer is indeed more like Skriniar type of defender. He can't replace Bastoni.

Bastoni is a player who can stay here for next 10 years no matter what. It would be much worse selling him than selling mercenaries like Hakimi or Lukaku.
If we need to get plusvalenza De Vrij is most logic choice, because we got him for free. The next ones should be Dumfries and Lautaro imo. Bastoni, Brozovic, Barella and Skriniar should be untouchable.

I didn't want to include non sporting reasons into my post but that's another factor. Attachment to the jersey. We aren't talking about a guy who sees Inter as a stepping stone or always dreamed of a move to Real, Barcelona or an EPL club. Bastoni is a boyhood Interista and he has said his dream is lifting Scudetto as an Inter captain. He has the potential to become an Inter legend. That's the guy we are reportedly open to sell.

If we sell Bastoni i am totally and truly done with ownership and management.

If I had to pick between Lautaro or Bastoni to be sold this summer. I would choose Lautaro because of his inconsistency it is so frustrating to watch

That's it, it's only reported and you know how much the media loves Inter, or rather loves to mess with Inter.

But you know this better than anyone.

I know that and till last summer i would have laughed it off. But last summer was a big shock. I wouldn't be surprised with anything anymore.

I sincerely hope it's typical media bs and we will all laugh about it in September. You can even quote this post to remind me "i told you so". 😉

You have been uncharacteristically negative this season, with all the Inzaghi and Zhangs criticism and rarely mentioning the positives, regardless of what you think, both have done well with their time here.

Hope you're more chill next season. We have plenty of negative guys (was going to say cunts but you gave me an infraction for it before and I believe I'm on my last warning) as is.
