people are investing into the future
and we are investing into nursing home(33+)
we dont even think of him or others who have potential
yet our managment cry that they are on tight budget but giving old/injured players 4+mil.
youngster can play for 2-4 years with 250-800k.
worth the risk/reward.
How we are investigating in nursing home? Let's check some facts.
Handanovic is 38, but we have a replacement ready - Onana 26. Handana's contract is for one year iirc.
DD (33) - back up player with an extension to the end of the season.
Darmian (32) - same as above. The only difference is that he is more like rotational player.
Mkhitaryian (33) - back up/ rotational player. I think his contract is 1+1.
Dzeko (36) - back up, contract expires at the end of current season.
Alexis (33) - he is leaving.

This hardy is an investment in a nursing home.

Gotta keep the gloom and doom narrative alive. That's what's feeding some people in this forum

It was a fair narrative last season. Dzeko was starting every match, Vidal was our best midfield option off the bench, and our reserve CBs were D'Ambrosio, Ranocchia, and Kolarov. We've had some natural attrition this summer that makes the situation a bit better, but not ideal because we haven't adequately replaced half those players.

I don't know how fair it was as all of those guys had expiring contracts, expect Dzeko, who was short term patch due to unexpected Lukaku's departure. Obviously Vidal also has had one year more, which many of us haven't expected. Anyway we had younger options than Vidal, but they were trash. In our starting line up we had only Dzeko, Perisic and Handanovic.

Agreed, but with whom do Inter replace them with, next summer? Hopefully not an entire batch of "old guys" on 3 year contracts.

Well that's the question but given Asllani and bellanova this season I'm kinda hopeful?

Not restricted to this forum. Doom and gloom is ingrained in most interisti.

Whether we like it or not, I think the more accurate description and label for it is depression rather than "doom and gloom".

He changed his agent. Daniele Mari thinks this is a sign that he's most likely going to leave.

The agent denied it.
