Correa's position had little to do with Sanchez.

Inzaghi did not block any sale of Correa. He did block a potential loan deal at the end of August when we had zero options to replace him other than loaning some scrub of Caicedo level ourselves.

Dybala was blocked for Lukaku.

Sanchez wanted to leave. You can blame Inzaghi for not playing him enough, over Dzeko, but not for sending him away. You can blame him for wanting out as well.

You can blame Inzaghi for blocking a potential Dzeko exit, but overall I think that was a wise decision. Whereas extending him isn't.

The problem wasn't Inzaghi playing Dzeko over Sanchez. The problem was Inzaghi having Sanchez behind Correa in the pecking order. Even when Sanchez proved to be very important for Inter last season once Correa returned from injury Inzaghi still saw Sanchez as a last resort.

Sanchez wanted to leave?! He was pissed that we wanted to get rid of him. Inzaghi blocked any move for Correa, from the very beginning. If he was available for transfer at the beginning of the merkato, we could have sold him earlier or send him on a loan + some kind of option, and keep Sanchez.

Dybala was blocked by Lukaku, I agree here. But, Inzaghi was the person who was decisive for that outcome. There were plenty rumors that Dybala's transfer is almost completed. Then it appeared the news for Lukaku and that Chelsea are opened to loan deal. After that Marotta put Dybala on hold, and it leaked info that Inzaghi prefers Lukaku. Then, we got Lukaku. It was the coach's choice at the end.

I was also in favor of Lukaku, but I don't get paid millions to make the wrong decisions. That is the reason I respect Conte. He said that he wanted Lukaku, when the latter was fat and out of form, and he made him to look like world class player. He said that he wanted Kulushevski, and Kulu is working well for him. He wanted Candreva in Chelsea, and when he worked with him few years later, Candreva delivered good amount of goals/assists, despite being a utter crap just a season ago.

Wait, I just realized we had Sanchez.

We got rid of Sanchez and Perisic without replacing them properly so we shouldn’t be surprised we play like shit. Those two players have won us a lot of points in the last two seasons. The fact that Lautaro is playing every fucking game surely affects his performances, meanwhile when we had Sanchez we had the luxury to do some rotation.

Thankfully, we succeeded at replacing Eriksen with Hakan, who to me is this season’s best midfielder.

Only idiots expected us to do wonders this season after all bad decisions of getting rid of important players just like that.

Yes, Sanchez wanted to leave. And Inzaghi was one of the reasons as Sanchez wanted to be a starter and he barely got minutes.

And no, Inzaghi didn't even want Correa here. He ended up with him because Marotta failed to bring a bunch of players.
Correa was transfer listed throughout the transfer window. Only Lille made a minor bid. Correa rejected Lille. Newcastle wasn't willing to pay as much as we asked.

Then, in late August, Correa had a loan offer from Spain and we rejected it because Inzaghi didn't want to lose a player so late in the preseason without a replacement in the horizon.

Atletico wasn't it. They rejected the De Paul swap we asked for.

Dybala was blocked by Lukaku, I agree here. But, Inzaghi was the person who was decisive for that outcome. There were plenty rumors that Dybala's transfer is almost completed. Then it appeared the news for Lukaku and that Chelsea are opened to loan deal. After that Marotta put Dybala on hold, and it leaked info that Inzaghi prefers Lukaku. Then, we got Lukaku. It was the coach's choice at the end.

No, it was not.

Lukaku was Zhang's deal and Marotta obliged. He told Dybala to wait for 1 month, he said he couldn't wait and then he told him the offer was off the table. The deal was pretty much done, there was just a 500-800k difference with the agent which was easy to overcome.

Dybala would have come only if we sold one of Dzeko or Correa after Lukaku's arrival. It was mission impossible. He wasn't Sanchez's replacement. Sanchez was considered a goner anyway and Marotta managed to pay him whatever he was asking all along, just 2 months later, as usual... Being the hard negotiator he is.

We have shit management and shit ownership. That's the problem. Don't pin shit on Inzaghi that's not his. He fucks up games, he doesn't have a strong squad and fails to deliver in Serie A but he's not dictating transfer policy.

He recently said that, but in reality, if ha wanted to leave why we paid him severance pay? We didn't do it with JM. Why all of the reports claimed that he is not in the club plans for the next season?
"Italian news outlet Gazzetta.it outline the situation, in which the Chilean is “holding hostage” the Nerazzurri’s plans to complete their last few signings as he remains on their wage bill for next season despite not being in their plans"
"One reason behind this has been that they have been unable to find a resolution to Sanchez’s situation, with the 33-year-old remaining their highest earner and in no hurry to agree a termination of his contract by mutual consent, even with substantial severance pay"
"Alexis Sanchez is not a target of Marseille. The forward is not in #Inter’s plans for next season, but he has turned down their offer of €4.5M in severance-pay to terminate his contract with the club."
"Alexis Sanchez has rejected an offer of €4M severance pay to terminate his #Inter contract" - why a player who wants to leave the club refuses a severance pay? It looks like we wanted to get rid of him.
And no, Inzaghi didn't even want Correa here. He ended up with him because Marotta failed to bring a bunch of players.
Correa was transfer listed throughout the transfer window. Only Lille made a minor bid. Correa rejected Lille. Newcastle wasn't willing to pay as much as we asked.

Atletico wasn't it. They rejected the De Paul swap we asked for.
"As has been highlighted by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the €31 million price tag that is on the head of Joaquin Correa makes it very hard to view him through any other lens.
He has not lived up to that price but Simone Inzaghi has always been his most vocal supporter and insisted that the Argentine will come good.
He doubled down on this in the summer when there was the chance of accelerating a departure for Joaquin Correa. By doing that, Inter could have freed up the space and money for Paulo Dybala to join the club.
Simone Inzaghi made it clear that he wants to keep the Argentine though."
"The Nerazzurri management were Interested in signing the Argentine, but they needed to sell Joaquin Correa in order to do so.
However, Inter's head coach did not approve of Correa's departure. As a result, Dybala's transfer failed and the forward moved to Roma"
Inzaghi himself - “On [departing forwards Alexis] Sanchez and [Andrea] Pinamonti, we made some choices focusing on these four, who give me great guarantees"
"Inter Milan boss Simone Inzaghi vetoed the club’s move for Paulo Dybala in favour of keeping Joaquin Correa"

Inzaghi wanted Correa stay, doesn't matter that Dybala or Alexis were the cost of that. It was imbecile decision.
Lukaku was Zhang's deal and Marotta obliged. He told Dybala to wait for 1 month, he said he couldn't wait and then he told him the offer was off the table. The deal was pretty much done, there was just a 500-800k difference with the agent which was easy to overcome.

"Inter Milan boss Simone Inzaghi is more interested in signing Romelu Lukaku than Paulo Dybala this summer as the Chelsea man wishes to return to Italy, according to reports."

"Inter coach Simone Inzaghi had been reluctant to sign Paulo Dybala in the summer because he had concerns over the Argentine’s injury history.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the coach wanted Romelu Lukaku over Dybala, with the former Juventus forward’s history of muscle injuries a worry for him"

"Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi told the club that the signing of Paulo Dybala was not necessary following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea"

Inzaghi has the main fault for our current forwards. Marotta gave him the freedom to choose, but he had the word for the final decision. They got him Lukaku and kept Correa, so all of the negatives should go to Inzaghi.

Lol Marotta is playing you like a beads string :D

You should have realized that with the "Sanchez is not a Marseille target" part before moving on.

You really think Inzaghi blocked Dybala and that Correa could have been sold for 28m which we needed to avoid capital losses? :lol:

You think we were in a position to reject 28m in general?

Do not base anything on Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

That's a goalkeeper doing it on purpose FOR SURE. Corrupt cunt
Nah, too obvious to be corrupt and body language doesn't agree with it. Just a major fuck up.

Goalkeepers always have an extra layer of fear factor when the ball bounces. You can easily see the ball swerving after it hit the ground for example.

Another sad reminder we let this guy go for correaids cause his salary was too high. Yet correas ridiculous transfer sun and salary combined for someone useless was deemed as a smart move by management…

I’d bring him back 🤣😂

Just saw a rumor in one Bulgarian group claiming that according to CdS Sanchez could return and Inzaghi gave his approval.

Should have never let him go.
In retrospect your right. He was the first victim of "fiscally responsible " push by mgmt. Inzaghi and company thought it was a saavy move. Wrong, big time as it turned out.
