Armenia got me on a flag chase :D
Also Asllani apparently has Italian citizenship.

How typical of Italians, when something is good, they'll claim it anyway they can. When my grandpa was young, they occupied half of Slovenia, so I'm appalled when I see things like that. Asllani is NOT Italian.

Pedulla - Ausilio has been in London since last night

Di Marzio - Piero Ausilio was in London for various market events organized with clubs and agents. However, there is no meeting with Chelsea to discuss Romelu Lukaku.

You think that's an Italian exclusive thing? Countries everywhere do that. Shit, there have been and are so many USMNT players trying to be claimed by the US and called American despite barely having, or never at all, lived in the country. I might be half-Hungarian through my father, but I've spent 10 days in my entire life in that country, so I would never call myself truly Hungarian, but that doesn't stop the US from poaching Dutch guys like Sergino Dest and then having to hear him be referred to during Barcelona games as "the American right back...".

Colonialism and imperialism have never truly died, they've just taken on less obvious forms. That's a hot take of mine and I'm sticking with it.

Well I could only speak from what hits home for me, but yes, obviously other countries do it as well. Power of words should not be understated

Where is Pimpin when you need him? :D

First they said Toro is for sale, then the player denied.
Then they said Bastoni is close to rejoin Conte, then the player said he's happy here.
Now it's Skriniar turn, then it will be SDV and who knows.

The Italian Media used to be relaible but now it seems like they are shooting in the air, trying to catch something big.

If it wasnt colonialism France today would never reach World cup not to mention winning it. We in Croatia say for France national team that is the best African team ever.
Ahh and Asia is always being ignored it seems 😈

I still don’t know how we can get many players if reports are true without any departures yet.

There is enough reports about departures.
Also we are going to offload many contracts this summer. Perisic, Vidal, Sanchez, Vecino, Kolarov, Ranocchia. Besides, it's not like we're spending big in terms of transfer fees.

Mhki and Dybala are free agents. Bellanova could join for around 10m plus youngsters on loan. Asllani is coming on loan with option for 10m. Cambiaso could join for around 5m. The only costly operation is Bremer but even he could join only if we sell one of our starting cbs.
