I think this armchair psychologist talk about mentality is bullshit, no offense. This is just a classic case of player being requested by his ex-manager. Same happened with Vidal under Conte, and Radja under Spaletti. Player thinks he can perform at his usual level and that it will be enough.

I expect this narrow missing out on Scudetto to be a serious wake up call about consistency for every player that remains here after the summer. Of course I would like a better striker than Correa but we have other strikers to replace first. Then maybe if he has a good world cup we can get to that.

Mentality is a key part at top level, not bullshit at all.

Also at Inter, using resources smartly is so important. Thus having 30m€, 3.5m€ net salary striker as Correa, he needs to deliver. He needs to be fit so he's available for the coach and on the pitch he needs to provide assists or goals. He provides possession play and some flicks but that ain't enough. Correa scored 4 goals (I don't count 2 goals against Samp) and one assist in Coppa when it mattered for Inter. It's really not enough for such resource usage (annual cost of having player in the squad).

His grilling skills allow for 10 additional health, strength and stamina points for our players. Its no surprise we had a decent year with injuries since his arrival. I think he's already worth it.

When the fixture list is up, there should be a competition to guess right the 3 games he will score a brace in.

I do feel like he got fucked by injuries this year. He was underwhelming in general to say the least, but maybe with some continuity he’ll be able to carve out a place in the squad. Not that he’ll ever be worth his price tag short of a miraculous change in fortunes.

He can surprise many next year IF he stays fit.

Correa has always been like this, he is consistant at being average his whole career, I doubt there is going to be some kinda late explosion of his potential but I hope to be surprised.

bad on precision and scoring

and his major drawback poor stamina and prone to injury.

iam opting to keep him since sanchez deperature is assured, but also mangt. should know better that getting rid of him
could cut cost,

He was OK until mid-December when he gets another injury. Then comes back at March and only plays garbage minutes, difficult to value when your playing time is 14 minutes-game.

He was? WHat did he do other than the two braces and be invisible in all the other games?
Also he started two games less after his second injury then he did before 5 vs 7......

Dude was just really bad imho

We were in a tough spot last summer. Lotito was in a position where he was able to dictate a lot in that transfer.

It was a mistake paying so much for Correa but the management had to give something to Inzaghi after losing Lukaku.

Inter wants to get rid of him,its told to his agent,Marseille is most interested in him for now. Does this means we are getting both Dybala and Lukaku?

His amortization cost is around 6m and his wage cost is like 6.5m gross.

I would get rid of him if it makes financially sense. We can't have another season where we don't get enough from him.

I doubt that a club would be willing to spend €24.5 million on him. But yeah, in terms of cost-performance, it would be better to let him go.

No one is buying Correa from us. It was clear to anyone who watches football (except our scouts) that Correa doesn't belong at a big club. He's been inconsistent as long as he's been at Lazio. He's a forward who doesn't score, which is only useful in a handful of two striker systems.

What club is going to come splash 25M on him while matching his wages? It's not happening.

I'm content with him staying and being a third of fourth striker next season. The problem is we can't get rid of Alexis.
