We will get rid of Gags. It will come in after the other high priority moves are taken care of. De Paul is a dream. But even getting Loftus Cheek on a loan is good option. We just need someone decent to cover for Barella.

Yup. This isn't a video game. Putting Dybala, Lukaku, and Martinez on the pitch all at the same time is a great way to lose matches.
I know man, its not a video game. But cmon, it would be good to have plan B, there are dosens of great coaches that can switch fornations and their players are up to task. Why its impossible in our squad that?

I fully support more flexibility. Inzaghi and Conte both shouldn't be allergic to occasionally switching to a back four, in certain situations. When Perisic was here, I would have liked to see us play a 3-4-3 with him and Gosens both on the left flank.

However, a 3-4-1-2 won't work. I think we proved that when Conte tried introducing it in his first season.

But 4-3-1-2? Maybe this could.

Gosens and Dumfries aren't good enough to play as a RB/LB. I also don't want to see our CB's getting exposed the way they will if we play like that. You could make it work with a player like Kante or a real DM. We are lacking in that department. Barella, Hakan and Brozo are 3 players who will play deeper than you would like them to play if you play that system.

Bastoni and Darmian as LB/RB. Many things could work when you work hard. Perisic become great LWB,never played that before.

You don't want Darmian to start every game. Bastoni hasn't become this great to be playing LB. And this mean you want De Vrij in a 2-man defence? This guy hasn't played like that in years. He really will be exposed. Even when Holland played like this he was a sub. I really don't see that system work with the players we currently have.

I didnt say that,I think we should try in some games other formation. When you play against some shitty bottom table team why not play other more attacking formation,why always stick same 3-5-2 formula. Depending on our opponents Limone should choose which formation. We are playing same shit all the time. And our coach just stick to that.

I think Dimarco can be solid LB. Surely better at LB position than LCB or LWB?

This may change, but what it looks like right now:

IN: Lukaku, Asllani, Mkhitaryan, Onana, Dybala, Bellanova, Milenkovic, Bremer
OUT: Vidal, Perisic, Vecino, Kolarov, Ranocchia, Caicedo, Dzeko, Skriniar, Sanchez, Radu

This is what I've got my mind set on. However I'd probably prefer Onana over Handa just for potentials sake. I also think we'll end up selling Dumfries but I hope not. That can come next year if Bellanova proves himself.

Maybe this is the Marotta masterplan:

Give Sanchez 4m to leave, replace with Lukaku (8m loan) -----------------------------------> -12m
Sell Skriniar to PSG for 80m, buy Bremer for 30-40m & Milenkovic for 15m ----------------> 30m
Swap Dzeko with Cuadrado, get Dybala for free & sell Dumfries to Man Utd for 40m -------> 40m
Sell Pinamonti (20m) & some plusvalenza fodder (10m) --------------------------------------> 30m
Give Vidal 4m to leave, get Mkhitaryan for free ------------------------------------------------> -4m
Vecino out for free, get Asllani for 4m loan + option-------------------------------------------> -4m
Perisic out for free, get Udogie for 20m --------------------------------------------------------> -20m
Sell Gagliardini for 10m, get Loftus-Cheek on loan+option------------------------------------> 10m
Total ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------> 70m gain

Final Squad:

Skr: Martinez (Dybala) - Lukaku (Correa)
WB: Gosens (Udogie) - Cuadrado (Darmian)
Mid: Hakan (Mkhitaryan) - Brozovic (Asllani) - Barella (Loftus-Cheek)
CB: Bastoni (Dimarco) - Bremer (De Vrij) - Milenkovic (D'Ambrosio)
GK: Handanovic (Onana)

I just hope our managment understand that losing Perisic, Skriniar and brining Lukaku make us weaker than last season. Bremer and Dybala are a must.

We have Gosen…. Hopefully he can step
In for Perisic and Dumfries is working on his finishing to have a Hakimi like season

Hopefully De Vrij stops being shit and is a monster next season.

Let’s be positive.

Lukaku >>>>>>>>>> upgrade on all our other attackers combined and is a perfect partner for Lautaro.

I agree but keep on mind that Beelan and especially rube will be much stronger next season. rube is goin for swap Keita(Liverpool)-Rabiot now,and they will def go on Bremer or another top CB till the end of mercato. Their attack is really a threat,plus if Pogba starts performing,they are clear favorites for scudetto. If we get Dybala and Bremer we'll have competitive team.

We don’t have a bench

Our starting 11 is only better in attack and goalie when Handa isn’t in brain fart mode.

we lost all titles because we have no bench. Our best bench options are Vidal, Sanchez and Correa. The rest is cringe worthy….. that wouldn’t even get out of the C league

We can hope new guys Asllani,Bellanova and Mikhi deliver. They cant be worse than fkn Vecino or non playable Sensi.
