I wouldnt say he's one of the best gk's right now, but for free he's the best possible option. He's also pretty young, so theres a lot of time for improvement.

Closed, there is no strong links to him.

The rule has been no opening specific player threads until there are some strong rumors and links to Inter.

Marotta confirmed our interest. Thread opened.
Thankfully Barcelona is a sinking embarassing ship, this works in our favour. Romano confirmed we are close also I think, or at least said we are in talks. Best option for a replacement for Handanovic next season, finances in all and his experience. We all know some people will fight against it but deep down no one can really be upset with this :)

I don't know if anyone here would be advocating for him to be Handanovic's replacement if he wasn't a Bosman transfer.

I get it, though. We have bigger needs. Marotta is going to have to buy a true number nine next summer and that's going to be our only expensive signing, I'd bet.

Then it's done. Else he wouldn't confirm anything.

We also need a starting creative midfielder. Hakan can't be that player.

I would and have been for a while. I've always maintained that spending 20 million on Musso or Cragno or whatever was idiotic when Onana would cost just about the same and is better than any keeper you can buy from Serie A. If he's coming on a free transfer then it's nothing short of a masterstroke (which btw is exactly why I don't think this is happening).

You are seriously underrating Marotta if you don`t see this coming :cool:

We have been mastering transfers of players with contracts running down in the past few years and we`ll keep on going like this baby

You'd bet wrong. Dzeko is on a 2 year contract. He will be our main #9 (even ahead of Lautaro) this season and next 🤗

Anyway, I'd be hoping the management is seriously considering the possibility of bringing Onana in January instead of waiting until next season. I have no faith in this though, obviously due to our calamitous financial situation. I wouldn't be surprised if the players are asked to pack their own lunches to save on costs.

Sadly my expectations of Handanovic have dropped to merely hoping he doesn't humiliate himself, but it seems he's incapable of meeting even those modest expectations. A functional keeper may be the difference between winning the scudetto and not.

At this point - and with this apocalyptic defense - all we have is to hope that Handanovic miraculously plays like he did against Fiorentina every 3 days but honestly, who the fuck thinks that'll happen. I had a tiny ember of hope that he might have one final hurrah following his great match at Florence but he immediately followed it up with an absolute stinker.

Give them Radu for Onana this winter. They may bite, considering they will lose Onana on a free next summer.

I love Handa, but its time for a proper succession plan.

I get vibes from those tik tok dances with the leg kicking.

And Elaine Benes dancing kicks comes to mind instantly.
