This is ridiculous, but I am optimistic. Ausilio did a great job in June selling lots of players that weren't important for us while keeping the backbone of our team. We could sell Perisic, Dalbert, Gags, J Mario, Vecino, Candreva and a couple of youngsters without losing a significant amount of quality. Most of these players could be on their way out sooner or later anyway.

So even with the CL money we are fucked?

This is fucking absurd especially if you consider the recent leaks.

Inter isn't fucked. We can't make expensive January buys (and even if we could, we cannot include them to CL list for the playoffs if we qualify because of squad registration restriction for this season) but noone will stop any buys starting from July. This season we are fully equipped (even with injury-prone fullbacks) to fight for top-4 spot, we are weaker than Juve and maybe Napoli but stronger than any other contenders. Barring multiple ACL injuries this squad depth is enough to be 3rd or 4th in the end. Asamoah and Dumbo were under pressure because of CL matches, if we qualify to the playoffs next match will be only in the end of February. So technically there isn't a dire need for January reinforcements.

As for exercising loan purchase options this is an unknown matter, we probably will know later on what's our sales/purchases and what's the leeway UEFA auditors give to us. It will be only Politano and Vrsaljko and technically it won't be a problem but after Cancelo incident who knows what can happen. We here can only speculate and wait for information from Italian media.

Other loan+purchase options have already been exercised this season (Paco Alcacer from Barca to Borussia and Andre Silva from Milan to Sevilla will follow soon). If we weren't under strict observation from UEFA we would have probably already bought Vrsaljko and Politano from their respective clubs. Since this is last year of Settlement Agreement Inter tries to be a good kid in the class and doesn't want to break any rules so must wait before buying out those players. Unfortunately (at least what I now understand) under Settlement Agreement we can't fully use our revenue streams to justify our player purchases. It always should be capital gains from players sales which allow us to buy someone. Hence that's why we've sold so many of our youth to compensate for our purchases. Simply getting more lucrative sponsor deals from China wouldn't help in that case. That's why I am a bit worried about our loanees' future.

Next July this thread would be browsed occasionally unlike these dire years as Inter will come back and compete with European powerhouses for best players.

I think we can agree with Sassuolo that the loan is "extended" till July and we acquire the player on 1st of July. Vrsaljko, at this point I'm not even sure do I want Inter to redeem him. He's gotta show consistency to stay healthy in the latter part of the season (and play well of course).

We just lose Politano and loan Berardi with option to buy 30mil after June 30th 2019.

I am sure Sassuolo would be happy with that.

Probably just an employee paid to do a job who couldn't give two fucks about football.

Not everyone in China does, or in the world for that matter.

Well, in this case he didn't give a fuck about doing his own job, it would have taken 10 minutes to look up on the internet

I was surprised about how little an interest people had in Shanghai for 5 years ago when I was there as a part of my studies. The Chinese companies are investing in football simply because of the financial opportunities it opens up to in the western world and not because they love the game of football. The general interest and love for football might change to the better over time but not from one day to another. It takes a number of baby steps before you are able to walk. China is still not walking yet when it comes to a general interest in football but we are talking about a lot of feets that walk the day when they finally do have the interest. That's why it is important to keep on promoting this club in Asia. Fuck ups or not. We are at least promoting our self big time in China which will benefit us a lot in the long term.

They don't.

This is probably a company doing events and this is just another 1/100 events they are doing during that day.

It means a lot to the fans, I understand that, but the quality of product delivered from China (services also) still leaves a lot to be desired bar a few big brands.

The only thing that Vrsaljko is consistent with are his injuries and absence from the starting eleven. Fuck him. He should be sent back to Atletico and we should focus on an alternative that is able to play two consecutive games in the space of a week.

What parameters are controlled with the settlement agreement? Apart from net spend obviously. What about salaries?

UEFA may not even know what to look at...
They have been fooled by PSG and City, so they rage extending our SA year after year.

What a joke UEFA are. They put all the FFP regulations they want on us but tremble in fear when confronting Manchester City and PSG. Glad these leaks came out to just show how fucked the football organisation is.

Well done to Tifo Football for making this.
