Don't have one.
Yeah, dude that was practically a reject in last few years cannot be a cherry on top of our mercato as marotta put it.

Although it is kind of worrying he said different characteristics. In that logic ndombele fits the description more than lopez, but we'll see I guess...

Yeah at first I thought that too. But Ndombele isn’t a physyical, defensive minded midfielder at all. Asuming Bepe means that.

Reposting to correct thread:

Overall 7

Sommer 6.5: Decent short term replacement.
Pavard 9: Excellent signing.
Frattesi 7: Good signing but we overplayed.
Augusto 8: Excellent deal.
Bisseck 6.5: low cost potential signing. Let's if Limone gives him a chance.
Thuram 8: excellent value signing.
Cuadrado 5: really the best we could manage...
Alexis 6: disappointing signing.
Arnautovic 1: horrible signing. Over payed plus has disgusting baggage.
Audero 7: an excellent nr2
Di Gennaro 7: the usual academy Berni type.
Klaassen 5: another disappointing recruitment of an aged player.

Brozovic 5: should gotten a lot more for one of the best regista's in the world when selling to a pig team .

Onana 4: Should have gotten atleast €70 mil. This is a side who paid €100 mil for Antony.

Correa 8: getting rid of him is a decent job.

Lazaro 7: getting a fee is well done.

Skriniar 1: releasing skriniar on a free is extremely poor especially given our financial position.

it's a ok Mercato but especially the striker recruitment was very poor.

Its too early to rate new players. Maybe Frattesi turn shit and lose his place to Klaassen who delivers. Who knows

think it should be by who replaced who

Onana = 54m + Sommer = B. What better GK was out there? Bunch of prospects for 20-30m. Short 1-2 season patch

Skriniar for $0 = I rate this more a 2022 FK up than a 2023 one. But replaced with Pavard = B would have been an A+++ if we had gotten anything for Skrinar

Brozo = Frattesi = B- depends how Frattesi ends up playing and if he becomes a starter. 18 million for Brozo is a joke. Sort of over paid for Frattesi if he doesnt become a starter

Gags = Klassen = A+ dont know Klassen never seen him play but anything is better than Gags and is low wages + free

Gosen = Augusto = A+ a better player and on loan. Loved Gosen at Atalanta but not the same player here. I dont see Augusto starting over dimarco but def will be a great super sub and rotation against weaker teams

Bisseck = C our track record with youth players is fking awful and for 8m massive gamble for someone who we will just loan forever to then use as a trade for someone else. 0 chance of playing with Pavard coming late in the window. Tho hope I am wrong


Correa = Alexis = C+ he is a better player but we paid him to leave a year ago, also Correa is on loan with potential of returning.

Dzeko = Arnautovic = C+ was happy till I saw how old the Austrian was. Fk we over paid. He done pretty well in his two appearances hope he starts scoring.

Lukaku = Thuram = B doesnt really score much and we are paying him insane wages. Great in build up play but has starter wages I just dont see him scoring 15+. That being said he was free and saved us 30m + even more wages on Lukaku

Lazaro = Cuadrado = A+ We got an infinitely better player on a 1 year deal for Lazaro wages. Who CUadrado actually replaced I cant even remember them so yea A++++++. Haha just remembered it was Bellanova

2nd/3rd GKS = new randoms that won't play B. Love Handa and should have been given the chance to retire with us but probably didn't want to be 3rd string on almost no wages. These guys won't play so as long as the wages went down who cares.

Bench, MF and Defense are stronger. GK went down a few notches but net 54m helps with that. On paper the Attack seems better but won't know until they start scoring.

Frattesi, Augusto, Pavard, Thuram will hopefully be back bones for the future. Giving us a starting 11 for another season or 2 maybe longer once we have a Acerbi replacement.

How important were some of the transfers we made among starters - a solid 8/10, the only thing I'm not happy is that we couldn't get Vicario because we were afraid of not getting enough money for Onana. But that happens to every team, every mercato. There is a limited amount of players available for transfers every summer.

Also understanding that our finances are bad, saying this wasn't really a good mercato would be a lie.

OVERALL SCORE: 7/10. Some transfers I'm kinda against, but we got Pavard, Thuram, Frattesi and Carlos Augusto in the same window. (Still not totally sold on Frattesi and Thuram, but I'm willing to give them two full seasons to prove themselves)
We missed on some players that would've made us clearer favourites, I do not believe in Arna and Sanchez being good enough bench options for us to win a Scudetto, simply because other teams have some serious firepower up front as well (Napoli, Juve, Milan). Arna ain't Džeko, and Sanchez ain't 27 anymore.
There is still lots to do next summer and I'm kinda dreading who is going to be sold next, but let's first enjoy this season and maybe we are able to gather enough money to actually not need to sell any of our favourite players.

We can fight for the Scudetto, but a long run in CL again + Scudetto is not in the cards for us. We do need the money tho, so any financial plus we gain is going to determine what kind of summer 2024 we are going to have.
