The wages of the following players totals up nicely to 30m
Kolarov
Young
Vecino
Pinamonti
D'Ambrosio
Ranocchia
Radu

Assuming we get some cash for selling Vecino, Pinamonti and/or Radu, we could offer Ranocchia and D'Ambrosio reduced wage contracts. And replace the rest we can replace with kids like Piroli or Dimarco. I would prefer this than sell one of our starting CBs.

I think we'll try to renew Rano and Dambrosio, which is a logical thing to do. We also should make at least a little money from sales of Lazaro, Mario, Dalbert and Nainggolan. Lets just hope someone will actually want them.

And all of them need to be replaced. Maybe not Vecino.

Exactly. We can do these lists all we want and count how much we spend salary on these guys now. But we need to remember two things:

1) We need to replace the outgoing guys, most of them. Conte do not accept going to the season with Darmian and Pirola as the backup CBs. That list above includes Ranocchia, Kolarov and D'Ambrosio, exactly our bench CBs this season. Pinamonti goes, he needs to be replaced, we can't manage yet another season without backup for Lukaku.

These replacements will cost money.

2) Renewals to our starters. Several of our starters need, they deserve, a payraise. That will mitigate the positive effect the outgoing salaries generate.

I'm having the pessimistic view of the situation that we cannot make a lot of money with the player sales. Lazaro, Joao Mario, Dalbert, Vecino. Last one might fetch something from EPL but who the fuck pay us anything for the others? They just send the loan offers to our way.

not that many of them. Kolarov barely plays, Darmian has shown he can do anything we'd ask Kolarov to do. Young can go, and be replaced by Dimarco imho - I think Darmian for LWB + RWB + LCB is too much.

Vecino can go without replacement.

Pinamonti needs replacing, if he goes

D'Ambro doesnt need replacing - he's barely played under Conte. Aside from this 'generous' start, he's played nothing more than basically single digit minutes since November.

Ranocchia would need replacing, as would Radu.

He's been injured for a lot of that. He was playing a decent bit before the bad injury. Dambro can play CB and both wing back positions. I think he's worth keeping.

I WANT to keep Dambro, dont get me wrong. But he's not in favour with Conte IMHO.

Yes, we could end up saving up to 23% or ~30m euro on current annual cost.
Assuming the players willing to take new contract with wage cuts (Ranocchia, D'ambrosio, Perisic). As for Perisic, as one of the high earner, we might try to offload him again, but replacing him now would costing a lot more, same thing applies to Pinamonti. Also Conte rate Perisic high, so it might only good for us if he accept the cuts. Btw, despite on the list, personally I'd like to keep Sanchez. For the rest of the possibly leaving players, it will up to us to how to offload them, be it on sell or on loan.


If just we could able to offload Nainggolan, Dalbert, Lazaro and Joao Mario and co, it would save a lot more on annual cost, of course this won't easy knowing our track record of selling or offloading players. But as we all know, no sane club would willing to throw cash on this players with their net value, so I won't surprise if there will be another loan or for drastic measure a contract termination. Surely the latter will result in minus valenza but who cares about ffp at the current world situation.

If D'Ambro is gone, we definitely need a replacement. If Skriniar gets injured or suspended we're screwed. We have no one else to play as a RCB. De Vrij was terrible when Conte used him there and Ranocchia would give us banter moments as RCB. Darmian can't be a backup for both right and left. Just because we got lucky with cbs last season, after the covid situation early in the season, it doesn't mean it will be the case every year.

I think the priority here is
1. Keep Conte. This also means keep him happy with no selling key players or the player he wants, like for example RG5. Who knows, he will back to rage mode if boards constantly offering Vidal to other club. Losing Conte now would be financial disaster, as we all used to know, building new squad require tons of money.
2. Offload the unused/not at club players (Radja, Dalbert, Lazaro, Joao Mario and co)

Though De Vrij played there one match (against Parma) when we didn't had yet figured out how to play our defence.

But I agree that we need to sign a new CB. If it's D'Ambrosio or new CB, I'm definitely going for new CB who can actually be part of the rotation. D'Ambrosio is simply too slow these days for that job, he's basically only an emergency backup you wouldn't want to use unless you have no one else.

I'm not buying the big sale theories. There's not enough money in circulation to convince Marotta to let go of Lauti/ Bastoni etc.

The only ones who could (maybe) go for the right price are De Vrij/ Brozovic.

I think most likely we will see a mercato like last season where we tried to offload unnecessary wages and maybe make 1 or 2 key additions.

Another Miranda/Godin type of great, older player instead of D'ambrosio isn't really viable.

Is any of our loanees ready to be a back up RCB?

Godin/Miranda level is too expensive unfortunately. If they want to take a paycut, added with Growth Decree effect, it's doable. But I'm not sure who could be the candidates.

Regarding paycuts, I think our players will end up accepting the 17% paycut for next season (salary cut of 2 months). If that's what it takes to continue the project, no core player is sold, Conte goes on etc I think they'll accept it. Btw Conte should definitely take a paycut too along with the players.

Perhaps Vanheusden though he isn't exactly a loanee. We need to spend 15-18m to get him back. As for the others, Pirola is a left-footed and Gravillon isn't Inter material.

The only old quality cb we could bring is Boateng but he's asking for 4.5m net and i doubt he would be willing to accept a backup role.

Yes if I were a player I'd be looking conte, marotta, zhang etc to be taking paycuts as well.

I would sell Lautaro for good money if we really need to sell someone big.

I like Lautaro, but i don't see him as this amazing 100 milion player everyone is taliking about. Considering he's age YES, but considering he's actual capacity...not really. Just look at Sanchez for example. A lot of people say "the games he comes as sub he's better". Yeah, but how many time did he play from the first minute? And how many times Lautaro had a game where he wasn't that good?
They're both good players. But i don't see a big diffrence between them, only the age. Sure Sanchez is a diffrent type of striker, but he would still make the same diffrence.
With 100M you can get someone simliar for less, keep Sanchez, get (hopefully) Dzeko for free and buy a LWB.

We aren't getting 100m€ offers for Lautaro so we can forget about this scenario.

It's incredible how we went from having the most potent owners in Serie A to having the worst. I do not understand why they didn't just sell the club for the rumoured 750mln euros.
