Il Corriere dello Sport reported on Tuesday that Roma have accepted he will leave and will not increase the offer made a week ago.

The report adds Mkhitaryan bid farewell to his team-mates following their historic Europa Conference League victory.

It also states that Inter have offered Mkhitaryan a deal worth €3.5 million over two years, which Roma are not willing to match.

It's not hard to see the club's sense behind the move. Low risk, given his solid performances since joining Roma years ago (and a solid shift last season where he would play under Inzaghi, outside of his natural position). Total cost of 12m including wages and transfer fees (excluding any possible agent fees). Maintains a certain technical level and meets expectations for a squad that is competitive for top 4 football without spending a lot of money. We need midfielders, he suits Inzaghi ball, and Inzaghi probably wants more players with his ability to dictate play in the squad. Thus it becomes a short term boost to our short term goal of Champions League football to keep the club as afloat as possible.

But it's also not hard to see how easily this move can go wrong. I know Marotta's strategy has always revolved around low risk Serie A acquisitions and mixing veterans with young talent. But this all assumes that Mkhi's on the pitch contribution will compensate for the wages we will spend on an asset with no resale value whatsoever. It's reported the difference between the two offers is that Inter is offering a 2 year deal vs Roma offering 1 year. At his age, physical decline is a huge risk. He's not injury prone but just recently came off a 3-4 week injury which was relapsed 15 minutes into the ECL final. If he declines in any way it makes the deal a flop for Inter.

If we are seeking Mkhi as a bench option to add depth, by default I'm against signing older players as bench options because it becomes more difficult as you age to stay fit without playing regular football. Making the level of his physical condition even lower in addition to the possibility of natural decline. Also, Mkhi is no super-sub or workhorse who you can just sub in to grind away to have some effect on the last 20 minutes of the match. To me he is the kind of player who needs time to settle into the rhythm of a game.

Other than that (making him a sub by default), it's not the worst transfer in the world but it doesn't give any excitement to the fans. What I fear is that the club is planning to sell Hakan and this is his replacement, à la Džeko.
I agree with you, but not with playing time. You don't use the oldies like workhorses. You need to manage their minutes to keep them fit all the campaign. Look at Dzeko! He started excellent, then slowly disappeared and in the end was useless. Had Simone managed his minutes better, he may have been more helpful in feb-march when we actually lost the scudetto. Obviously there are exceptions like Zanetti, CR7 or Modric. But as a rule of thumb, you don't overuse them with 2 games per week.
But our midfield is already there, so we need another midfielder to rotate (30 min in 2 games, then start for 60min and so on) Mikhi is OK for this role and we have the personnel to keep him fresh.

I think Mkhi will be a good sub player for Hakan. When we need that extra offensive punch. This season we had nothing on the bench except Correa and Sanchez if Inzaghi needed an offensive help.

One issue is Mkhi's ability to play that mezzala role in general.

While we are at it, let's get Gareth Bale as well. Sign all these has-beens and hope they'll miraculously return to their prime. 😎

If I'm him, I'll take less money and less games here. Be fresh, help the team to win a Championship or two and do well at CL stages. Money is not everything. I hope he does not make a mistake signing for Roma again.

I thought it was 2.8 net here.
most reports i saw was we are offering 0.5M more. idk, perhaps it changed in these last days... anyway i agree with you, its best for him to join us, even if he wont be a starter.

This is about the salary from Gds... btw, I have no desire to correct the translation, cause i am done for today.

The Giallorossi offer - reports the rosea, rattling off the numbers - is a year of contract at 3.6 million net plus personal bonuses "of 300 thousand euros every 15 games which would easily bring the salary to a ceiling of 4.2 million - it reads - In addition to private prizes, Micki would also earn team prizes and his renewal until 2024 would be automatic if he plays at least half of the matches or if Roma enter the Champions League (in case of qualification for other European cups he would start the same, but in small numbers) ".

On the other hand there is Inter, which to convince the former Arsenal puts on the plate a salary of about 3.3 million net with easy bonuses to reach around 4.2 million and automatic renewal in the event of a certain number. attendance. Roma or Inter: the ball now passes to the player.

Seems to me no brainer, but I have seen stranger things before.
