Thats a different story though most of them are ADRs and thus they got away with a lot less scrutiny when getting listed then Us companies would...
This does not apply to Inter....
Secondly a Fund or who ever buys us would probably see through that as these things fall apart pretty quick and agin with most of these companies the business itself is in china so it s a lot harder for US investor to asses the actual business(luckin).
Inter s business is in italy and the contracts are pretty transparent which makes cooking the books even harder.
The only other party suning could be trying to fool is Fifa/Uefa and i think they have pretty clear accounting rules and probably good visibility on sponsor ship and players contracts.
So really whats the point? fool creditors?
Fool their bosses

the whole management team deserves an F. The guys that are responsible for sponsors as well.
Team of retards would do a better job than these guys.
I'm waiting on a call from Inter :lol:

We're going to deeply regret letting Bremer and Dybala get away this season. I think not completing those deals could be the reason why we might not do as well as some of us hope we will.

It'll be brought up every time we lose, tie, or an important player gets injured.

Yup.

Not renew Perisic contract is the worst mistake Inter have made. Bastoni look so poor against Milan right side, which is weaker than their left side.

Perisic and Gosens will scare any RB in Serie-A, but instead we have Dimarco or Darmian playing this season. Lol.

Imagine Madrid not renew Benzema, and instead playing Mariano Diaz this season.

In:
Lukaku
. Made no sense for that cost, after his appalling season. It's as if the management was living in a different galaxy while he was here as well.
Asllani. Decent talent but what's the point?
Mkhitaryan. Okay deal but we will need to get rid of him after 1 season - which I trust will be solid enough - and instead we'll keep him on.
Onana. Will be judged when he plays but if you keep Handanovic and you have budgetary constraints, this makes no sense. It's not like we can plan ahead and say he's our next starter, we'll probably sell him before he completes 50 games if he turns out good.
Acerbi. Honestly not a terrible deal but arrived too late.
Bellanova. Another deal that makes little sense. He wanted to become a starter somewhere and he came here to be 3rd in the pecking order behind Dumfries and Darmian.


Out:
Sanchez.
Poor judgment to send him packing, especially since Dybala did not arrive.
Vidal. Too late to get rid of him and cost too much.
Casadei. Would have been nice to keep him but the offer was too good to refuse.
Pinamonti. Decent deal.
Ranocchia. Could have stayed but he wanted to go somewhere to be a starter, cannot blame him for not waiting our inutile management to decide.
Vecino. It was expected.
Sensi. Disappointed by the turn of events, I'd honestly still keep him around since we could barely loan him out.
Vanheusden. Had hopes that the kid could break into the rotation but evidently he's not good enough and cannot be relied upon.
Radu. It'd be toxic if he remained after that Bologna blunder. Hopefully he puts that behind him.
Esposito. Needs the development and the loan destinations so far have been spot on.
Satriano. I honestly would have kept him as the 5th forward. He will surprise us.
Lazaro. Needs to get off the books asap.
Agoume. Another player that I'd keep around.
Pirola. Good loan experience. Needs to return and be part of the rotation if Salernitana drops and he's proving to be reliable.


Not in:
Dybala.
Shame, he was waiting for us for months.
Bremer. Double the shame. Both him and Dybala could have arrived if Lukaku hadn't, assuming we'd sell Pinamonti a bit earlier. We gifted Juventus this player.
Left wing back. We do have Gosens, but we needed one more guy. Not necessarily a starter. Can't tell if this player would have been Udogie or Biraghi, it just needed to be someone.
Scamacca. Won't lose any sleep here, especially for that price. Wouldn't pay more than 30m for him.
Frattesi. Decent player that could have helped in the rotation, but he's not worth more than 20m.


Not out:
Bastoni.
Horrendous decision to attempt to shop him. He obviously seems affected by it.
Skriniar. Even worse. We've been trying to do this to him for years. Barely has 9 months of contract yet and I don't think he's been called yet to renew despite the promise that it'd happen after the rejected PSG bids.
Dimarco. We rejected a couple of bids for him, probably a good decision, but since we need money we should have been more willing to sacrifice him than others, especially if it could finance the Bremer deal early on.
De Vrij. For some reason we didn't push hard to get him sold.
Dumfries. Had some interest but we never shown intent to sell him.
Dzeko. We decided to keep him. He had also decided to stay. Would have been extremely hard to get release him to another club under these circumstances. And honestly I don't mind it as long as he's 3rd striker at best.


Overall? 4/10

It's one thing to have your hands tied by the management, it's another to still raise them and poke your own eyes out...

I have a hard time believing we would have signed both Dybala and Bremer if Lukaku didn't arrive. Dybala surely. Bremer seemed to be more reliant on a Skriniar sale.

If management truly chose Lukaku over Bremer AND Dybala then everyone should be fired.

I agree on everything else in your post, except Asllani.

The finances were there.

Bremer could have been had for 35m before we delayed but we made silly offers of 25m and thought we'd keep the valuation where Torino had them before their renewal. We then stopped a Pinamonti sale to Monza because we imagined that Torino would be thrilled to have him included in the Bremer deal. Or that we could have swapped him directly for Milenkovic with Fiorentina. None of that happened and we lost 18m or whatever Monza offered at the time which could have been enough to get Bremer.

We could have sold De Vrij to free up some budget. Even if it was just 10m. We didn't care much since we couldn't get more than 25m which apparently was our asking price.

We had offers to sell Dimarco at 15m. We wanted 25m because why not? Any of that would have sufficed to get both Bremer and Dybala in early July. As usual Marotta felt that delaying was going to be beneficial but as even more usual, he was wrong about that. Rushing to get Lukaku so that the tax thing would still apply was a costly mistake in our roster building.
It bound our hands as we had decided that Sanchez is out, by the time we made that happen Dybala was already elsewhere. It was hard to get rid of Dzeko and we had no aspiration of selling Lautaro and no destination that Correa would welcome.

There definitely was pressure by Suning to give out some capital gains for the next season, and apparently net profit from transfers, but choosing to sell Bastoni or Skriniar (with Barella next in line!) was another disastrous attempt by the management as we had no plan B until the dust settled. It started picking up in mid June and it settled in late August...

Horrendous, just horrendous altogether. I wouldn't doubt for a second that the players don't feel welcome at the club anymore. Their only attachment can be with the colors, their teammates (who come and go) and the fans.

Agree with AD Rossi, Bremer deal was not connected with Lukaku, but with the Skriniar sale unfortunately. When you owners are trying to make money from every mercato, the best Marotta can do is slow down the decline. This will impact player morale, and performances will drop, which will drop values of players... its a vicious cycle downwards.

Also Brehme, pls add Perisic to the outgoing list. That has hurt us the most.

I will take a picture of my Fifa 2023 squad. I sell all our players but Bastoni, Barella, Brozo, Lautaro and Skriniar. I make 800 million and just use our guys on loan :)

But real life is not Fifa nor are the player values especially with our wages realistic.

I give the market a 6/10 but a 8/10 if we actually resign Skriniar and he doesn't leave for free.

Positives
- Lukaku is better than every other Striker in the league we got him cheap for what we sold him. It is a loan and he is a perfect partner to Lauataro
- Kept Lautaro, Dumfries, Brozo, Barella, Bastoni, Skriniar. That is 6 starters that can walk into the starting line up for almost any team in Italy.
- Got rid of dead wood
- 15 million for a random youth player who would never play for us
- 20 million for our 5th choice striker

Negatives
- Vecino left for Free then Started for Lazio against us. How the heck weren't we able to get 5 million for him last winter or earlier than that
- Absolutely no subs on the team
- More old Roma trash
- Getting rid of our 2nd best striker and paying him 5 million to leave was idiotic. To me Sachez > Dybala
- We didn't really sign anyone that could start
- Didn't get any of our targets

On the fence
- Vidal getting paid 5 million to leave. We could use him on the bench that is crazy lean
- Bremer while I don't rate him as high as you guys do .... it was a done deal for 3 months or more then wasn't makes us look bad
- sending out every youth prospect out on loan instead of letting 1 of them stay and play rotational roles
- Rano leaving while I don't like the guy who replaced him.... I like less

Perisic belongs to the complete fuck ups list that I decided not to include.

Pedulla gave updates on management plans for contract extensions:

- Cordaz: Any decision towards his contract has been postponed till spring
- D'Ambrosio: It is very likely he will get an extension
- Darmian: Same case with D'Ambrosio
- Dzeko: No talks for an extension are expected soon and at his age it is possible Dzeko will move to more profitable leagues, like MLS
- Handanovic: His future is in doubt as club sees Onana as the future
- Gagliardini: There was an offer from Monza last summer that Inter would have gladly accepted but player chose to stay. We are leaning towards a similar fate with Vecino, a farewell at the end of the season
- Skriniar: Inter will offer him 6m/season to extend but if there's no progress till October he will be put in the market in January for 20-25m. Club prefers that solution over losing him on a free in the summer
- De Vrij: He was offered an extension a year ago but the situation has stagnated. Inter would have sold him for 15-18m last summer but he ended up staying. It would be bad news for the club to lose him on a free. Everything is open for his future.

No real surprises here. I'm confident we're going to lose both de Vrij and Skriniar for free, and then need to sign three CBs next summer despite 1) having a mandate that we earn plusvalenza and 2) are given a 0M transfer budget.

Chris Smalling Bosman incoming.

If we lose both De Vrij and Skriniar on a free then it's time to move on from back 3 and switch to back 4. It's madness to stick with a back 3 when you only have one natural cb (Bastoni), a lb who's poor at defending and doesn't have a fixed position (Dimarco) and a grandpa makeshift cb (D'Ambrosio) under contract. Signing two starting cbs, one of which a fast and ball playing one, would be super expensive. Better sign one cb to pair him with Bastoni and 1-2 cheap backups.

The sad thing is with the purported Mercato for next summer mentioned by @Il Drago is Inter will probably have to sell somebody too e.g. , Barella , Martinez or both.

Massive rebuilds seem to be in Inter's future players, formation and a new stadium.

Then you need to change manager. Inzaghi is playing with a back 3.

HAHAHAHAHA

About 12 months ago we had a defensive trio easily worth over €150m combined. Now de Vrij's valuation (and brain) is in the toilet with Skriniar's soon to join. Bastoni is playing like an absolute shithead too. At this rate that +€150m worth of assets will probably fetch 40m from a Bastoni sale with Skriniar and de Vrij leaving for free.

The mismanagement and incompetence is beyond anything I've ever seen.
