Don't have one.
Correa was a big mistake, but it's also fair to point out he was basically our last option, we would have gotten thuram if he wasn't a dumbass and injured himself.
Aside from Lukaku and Lautaro being good friends I don't see them working together on some high level. It's a good partnership, but not a spectacular one imo. I'll gladly eat my words though if Lautaro isn't just going run his ass off making room for Lukaku while losing other opportunties. We saw last season he can do more.
Agree with this, and I was saying it even when we won scuddeto, those two as it stands right now will never be world-class players, they have serious flaws for that to happen, and also their cooperation is kinda overrated as well imo. But I tend to put things into perspective, and I know for a fact their partnership is the absolute best we can afford right now given our finances. Hell, it was the best thing we could afford four years ago, let alone now.

What is stopping Lautaro from being world class now? He's been scoring more and more season after season and still is only 25. He also scores consistently for his NT.

He may be world class right now already with the only thing stopping him from showing his true levels being his striker partnership, where he's always the one who has to sacrifice to accomodate the other.

Lautaro is good enough for a player we all know isn't really a world class players. Not his fault all of his compatriots in the squad are worse/old.

I’m going to laugh when Dzeko or Sanchez score more than Dybala next season and everyone wants to stop being an Inter fan because we didn’t sign Dybala or Bremer…(2nd guy none of you knew about before January when we became linked to him)

Not the first time you said that and not the first time you are wrong.

Nah, the argument that his partners in attack are somehow preventing him from being world-class was already discussed here, and it's total bs imo. His finishing and a couple of other things (sometimes first touch, sometimes excessive diving) is preventing him from being that.

Hell, you can even make an argument that if your own level of display depends that much on your partner in attack, you can't be called a world-class.

I have been arguing for Bremer since March 2021.

And i wasn't the only one. Anyone who follows Serie A closely and doesn't simply watch Inter games knew he had potential.

The argument is simple. The more you run the less sharp you are. It’s just Fitness 101. Low sharpness equals bad finishing, first touch, balance.

The argument is not that he depends on his partner, but his partner should be at least able to burden some of the dirty work and not be a complete training cone i.e. Dzeko, Lukaku.

These were the results of past mistakes. Giving a 3-year contract to 31-year old Sanchez. Giving a 2-year contract to 35-year old Dzeko. Making a big investment on Correa not because you believe in him but because you need to sign someone.

Also our attack feels complete but we could be left only with Lautaro, who could be our next big sale, and Correa in a year from now. There's a verbal agreement to extend Lukaku's loan but there's no guarantee both parties will honor the agreement. Sanchez will eventually get his golden handshake as coach doesn't rate him and he's 5th option now. Dzeko has an expiring contract. So our attack could look much different in a year from now and you don't have the chance to sign a forward with Dybala's quality on a free every summer.
That is true, but apart from Correa's mistake the other ones weren't so easy to be avoided. Sanchez came in the moment, when we had money and we needed quality back up. One year loan + 3 years contract was a bit excessive, but for me he was a decent rotational player for 3 seasons. If there was no Dybala's opportunity, I still would pick up Alexis over Correa for the bench. About Dzeko - I really doubt that he would have agreed 1 year deal only, and I don't consider him as a failure. He was supposed to be a cheaper short-term patch, and he actually provided 17 goals and 10 assists last season. This is nearly the maximum, which can be squeezed from him, taking into account his age.

Didn't expect this reply from you. Aren't you the guy who said Benzema was being underrated due to his role at Real Madrid for years? Lautaro also has that kind of role here (being the 2nd fiddle) and was never really allowed to lead the line. You can judge if he's world class or not once he does that.

I thought he is leading the line for Argentina and was our main forward last season. Again, I believe he is very good, about as good as his idol Falcao was at this age when he was playing for Atletico.

But I also never thought Falcao was a world class, prolific striker either.

I do not think he has to be our main striker to show what he has in him, he knows how to score goals, but sometimes his temper gets the best of him and he rockets the ball when he could've done something more elegant, a well placed shot for example.

All in all, I am happy he is here and I am certain he'll do good this season, but I doubt he'll light CL teams on fire unless he really improved on his 'mental state fluctuation'

Lautaro is doing so much stuff right, what coaches asks him to do. At Inter he's playing in striker formation in 352 for 3 years now and the role includes lots off off-the-ball movement and work. This is why he's always starting, for Conte and for Inzaghi even if he's not a world class finisher.

Fabrizio Biasin speaks exclusively to Inter-News.it at the end of a turbulent week at the Nerazzurri. Several topics were discussed with the Libero journalist and well-known Nerazzurri fan, primarily the transfer market from a defense perspective. From Bremer, faded, passing through Skriniar in the balance and the Milenkovic option. Below is the first part of the exclusive interview with Biasin :

- Biasin, let's first talk about the Bremer affair. Faded after months of negotiations and went to Juventus. Why did this track get complicated so suddenly? If Inter - as they say - had him in their hands practically since January, why didn't he finish earlier?
A very trivial question: Inter did not have the necessary financial resources to go and close the deal at the time. He relied on having some sort of promise with the player. He could have moved, maybe a month ago, by making the same offer but the economic part would have always been missing to satisfy Torino. Was the sale of Skriniar needed? In reality, a sale was needed. Even that of Pinamonti at 20 million would have been enough to guarantee you a good nest egg and try to close. So this delay in selling, therefore in selling players, led Inter to not be able to place their sixth shot.
- Is there a serious problem related to transfers in Inter at this point?
It is not a problem that concerns only Inter but all the Italian teams. In Italy there is a liquidity problem. Juventus came to sell because Bayern Munich needed a defender and made a very important offer for de Ligt. Something can also reach Sassuolo, who lets Scamacca go for more than 40 million euros in total and which could open up a great round of forwards. From a Pinamonti perspective, Atalanta moved first but the Goddess also needs to make some exits in order to let the player in. Inter's goal now is to be able to keep Skriniar back!
- In the last few hours, Inter CEO Beppe Marotta spoke, also speaking about Skriniar. Biasin, how do you interpret his words?
In my opinion Marotta was very clear in what he said. Skriniar is a very strong player who does not necessarily have to be put on the market. Then of course, if a very attractive offer of over 70 million euros arrives, then Inter will certainly be able to evaluate it. My feeling is that Skriniar will remain, but it is also a hope ...
- Biasin, about Skriniar and Paris Saint-Germain. What do you think of this great soap opera? And in the end, at what figures could Skriniar be renewed with Inter?
With Campos, PSG changed the market line a bit. Despite the enormous financial resources, they varied their strategy trying not to put more money on the plate for any player but to better evaluate the situations. Skriniar is definitely one of their targets. Mukiele is another name but I believe their target has always been Skriniar. Skriniar had an agreement with PSG worth over € 8 million net a year. Inter Milan will obviously have to make a reasonable offer to the player for the renewal. The Nerazzurri's ceiling is 6 million euros, Lukaku is a separate case. I believe that Skriniar will be offered an offer on Brozovic's figures. And I hope that the captain's armband will also be recognized in the future.
- What do you think of Nikola Milenkovic? Could the Serbian be the right pawn to strengthen Inter's defense?
I consider Milenkovic to be an excellent player, slightly underestimated. In the last season he probably did not express himself at the top but he is still an excellent player, capable of doing well in both a three and a four defense. Milenkovic is a player capable of giving security to the department. Should a Bremer-bis be avoided? It is also important to understand what Juventus will want to do, which could go in search of a defender ...

Until Martinez develops one iota of composure he will never be a world class player. His finishing just isn't there.
