Only good thing in this transfer is that this guy will be probably 6,7 midfielder.
Just stay and watch how this guy will be 4th choice immediately after Mkhitaryan.
I'm so mad about this one.

Perfect, we get rid of G5 just to make room for this dude.
What is this fetish for poor midfielders?

Well, instead Samardzic we got this 🤡
at least Inter got him for free :cool: what salary is he getting for these 2 years? Surely under 2.5M since with that kind of wage club could have signed Pereyra.

I`m just happy it wasn`t freaking Ndombele.

Now 1 midfielder needs to be offloaded, right? Is it going to be Agoume / Sensi / perhaps Asllani to get proper playing time and further develop?

I think Klaasen fits the bill as both a box to box midfielder and a "forward" option in case we go for a 3-5-1-1 situation.

I don't like the 2 year part. Should be 1+1
1+1 would have been better with club deciding on the option. I guess we just wanted to get the guy and not spend any time negotiating on that. Because we need the two years for the Growth Decree. If we had the option and the guy absolutely sucked, we would have just paid the extra taxes instead of using the option.

So now we need to hope he doesn't suck. To me it seems Inzaghi doesn't trust Sensi one bit and he wants this kind of experienced midfielder you can throw in if there are injuries etc (like Mhki).

This is just standard Marotta. Guy is still using the same scout list from 2017 which is why we're constantly signing or pursuing these targets like Vidal, Kolarov, Sanchez (x2), Dzeko, Mkhitaryan, Acerbi, Cuadrado etc. Wouldn't be surprised to see Pjanic links soon.
I don't think so. It's more on Inzaghi who obviously doesn't rate Asllani, and doesn't want Sensi due to his unreliability.
Most probably he asked for more experienced option, and Marotta found the cheapest one.

Yeah, the last argument being the most important one. :D And more specifically, cheap means free.

Lack of trust on Asllani and Sensi is evident. I'm still wondering what's the plan for regista role when Calhanoglu is out.

It isn't everything just about salary. Gagliardini had the lowest salary in the squad. This still didn't stop anyone from shitting on him whenever he was on the pitch. Performance on the pitch also matters.

Do you think people shitting on players in the internet matters when the club is building the squad? I would say what coach asks matters much more. I could be wrong tho.

Don't get what all the complaining is about. It's not like we sold our best midfielder and replaced him with this guy. He'll start a few coppa matches and we'll be subbed in when we're leading 3-0 against someone. Would you guys expect us to splash 20mil on someone to warm up the bench?

The thread should be renamed FIF's the most depressing last day of the mercato.

This. We're adding extra midfielder when we already have like 6-7 midfielders in the squad (if Agoume is counted). I don't get this rage atmosphere at all. :D

I don't see any correlation between my post and yours. People just express their opinions. They don't do it because they expect their opinions to matter and affect club decisions. They just want to share their thoughts on their favorite clubs matters. Else there's no point discussing football in the first place.

Ok but you made it sound like people shitting on players matters. People shit on Lautaro and Barella every match.

Nobody cares about fans opinions (even though Marotta reads everything). :D Ownership, management and coach will just do whatever they have decided to. Point was low salary won't save Klaassen (or any player for that matter) from criticism if he doesn't perform on the pitch.
