However their circumstances are close to be the same;

A club with not to much money on its bank account and without Champions League participation decides to spend a considerable amount of cash on a 29 years old player as the club hopes the player will keep on doing magic at his new club and ultimately be the missing piece.

We should have a similar focus to what most of the successful German clubs are doing; Build up a (winning) culture with young players.

People are comparing the situation without even comparing the players!

Reading some of the posts one could mistakenly assume that Candreva is some 35 year old has been who should be thinking MLS. Its fucking ridiculous. He is 29 for crying out loud, and has had a better last two seasons than any midfielder or winger at Inter in that period - I mean, its not even close. Maybe Perisic in the last 6 months has been Candreva's level.

At a time when Juventus just dropped 94 fucking million on a 28 year old, and Manchester United signed a 34 year old on €15m wages pa... should put things in perspective, surely.

Either Inter should forget about CL for a few years and invest on young players like Jesus.... or be prepared to spend some serious money on quality 26-30 year olds to focus on CL qualification. We clearly don't have the finances to do both in todays market.

As opposed to being what? He was brought here to play as a RB.


Atlético Madrid Twitter account saw one supporter pose the question about whether Ansaldi is infact left or right-footed.

“I strike the ball better with my left".

Candreva ain't bad honestly, him and Perisić on the wings would be nice.
We bought Papa Palacio at 30 and he still here, so why the hell not :yao:
plus i wouldnt mind some more italian presence in our squad

Good point Bluenine.

I can't think of anyone that can come in for a similar price and perform as candreva in the attacking and defensive phase as Mancini requires.

We could bank on youth but it's a risk that may not yield rewards now. Our two direct rivals have been weakened and it's out chance to go for champions league, which we need! Candreva is a sure bet for me.

You're wrong Real didnt want to spend on Maicon.

Did you watch the Euros? The only thing he has in common with Hernanes is his former club.

Unlike Hernanes he has a set posution ans he will fit in immediately and if i remember correctly he sodomises us twice last season.

So you ignore his form for his club and mention his form for his country?!

His form in his club is a lot more relavant since he wants to join another club!

He is an old midfielder who used to be good and is fast declining. Lotito knows this and he is trying to fool us into buying him.

Exactly like what happened with Hernanes.

Lets look at his form for Lazio, he had a 'bad' season and still managed to score 10 goals and assist 3, that's more than any of our players besides Icardi.. And he also had a good Euro..

Seriously guy, you make it sound like he is 34 and not 29, I don't know from where did you get that he is fast declining? Do you have any facts for that statement?

Candreva is class if some people fail to recognize that its only beacuse they havent watched him play simple as that.

If you start out with comparing Candreva to Hernanes it only goes to show that you have no clue what your even talking about and probably havent seen him play cause those two players have nothing in common and you might aswell compare Banega to Messi while your at it.

I don't know how you want me to prove that he is fast declining. You compare his last season with the one before it and you can tell. But anyways, look at the graph on transfermarkt. That's an indication.

http://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/antonio-candreva/profil/spieler/25488

Also his stats last season are the worst among the last three seasons.
