Here's a fun little exercise. First team players who are under contract for the 2023/24 season:

GK: Onana
CB: Bastoni, Dimarco
CM: Barella, Calhanoglu, Brozovic, Asllani
WB: Dumfries, Gosens, Bellanova
ST: Lautaro, Correa

Noteable contracts expiring after this season: Handanovic, Skriniar, de Vrij, D'Ambrosio, Darmian+, Mkhitaryan*, Gagliardini, Dzeko.

* - conditional option based on certain criteria
+ - I've seen inconsistent reporting on the duration of this contract - might be until 2024.

Noteable Serie A players who will be available on a Bosman starting in January: Fabian Ruiz, Malinovskyi, Singo, Cuadrado, Rabiot, Murillo, Juan Jesus, Smalling

It's not a great situation, guys.

It's very close at least.

Singo as free agent next summer is an interesting one. I could see Marotta snatching him to replace Dumfries who'd be sold to EPL for big money.
Which looks like a logical move. Anyway, i want to have someone more dynamic like Singo, or somebody more tehnical like Cancelo instead of Dumfries. The latter and Gosens are too similar in style, as they are more direct players and i don't like the idea to play both of them. They could prove me wrong of course.

We won't be getting Singo for free lets be honest. We marinated Bremer and his agent 8 months and he still showed middle finger to us. Singo will go to Rube for twice the wages compared to us when we show interest. Its how it is. Has to be clean fast transfer where Torino is happy.

Singo to Juve would not surprise me one bit. Cuadrado is out of contract, so you know they will get someone good, while we will proabably be playing Lazaro, as Dumfries will get sold and all we will have left is Bellanova and Lazaro... Or perhaps they'll extend Darmian. Don't expect much money being spend next year, even tho there will be a lot of players without a contract... The only way we get out of this shit is if someone buys the club, cause otherwise i am pretty sure that by 2025 there wont be no Barella, Bastoni, Skriniar and Lautaro at the club.

I agree about Skriniar, but not for Dumfries. If Chelsea offer something like 40 mln, we should definitely sell and get Singo. If not, try some player even on loan.
You're working under the bold assumption that we're allowed to reinvest transfer proceeds.

In this particular situation, we may get someone on loan if Torino demand too much for Singo, and get him for free next season, promising a starting spot. It will be a low cost deal anyway.

It's not a great situation, guys.

Murillo as in Jeison? He turned to utter shit 6 months after coming here. He has not gotten any better

Ruiz is going to psg.

Rabiot is awful and his wages are crazy.

I really hope Cuadrado goes to Qatar

Juan Jesus!! Come on man!! Is that a joke? Guarin is a free agent as well. Why not just bring back Godin

Yet it seems like they are able to offload him to man utd soon. They were also able to offload Bentacur last season; wasn't too surprised with Kulusevski as kid gots talent and its shown.

So gobbi can sell rabiot for €15/18 million while being in his last year and the second highest wages in serie a but our super mercato team can't sell a single piece of deadwood for a decent fee....
