Well that is little too soon to say we are out for challenging for title? Lukaku deal is not eaven done and we dont have a replacements in yet…

Other teams have not get any transfers in and we have good squad without Lukaku, Eriksen, Hakimi and Conte! This deal give a big boost for our finances and will make us financially stronger at longterm!

You should know by now that, by some fans' logic, every time Inter sells an important player that kicks Inter out of the top 6 teams by default.

I wouldn’t mind so much if we were selling Rom for such an astronomical fee and it was reinvested in young players that have high ceilings like Vlahovic, Isak or Raspadori for example. But from all reports, we’re seemingly all in on the poor mans Lukaku in Zapata. And it won’t be for a small fee. Atalanta is a rival. They’re not gonna accept some loan with obligation to buy bullshit when we’re flush with transfer funds.

It just seems to me that there’s a serious lack of planning going forward and Marotta and the lot are scrambling.

For all our sakes, we better hope Lautaro takes a massive step forward this season.

Of course but basically it means Lautaro needs to score like Lukaku and Zapata to score like Lautaro (because Zapata won't score like Lukaku). Also we need reinforcements elsewhere as removing Hakimi is a big blow. Consider also rivals getting stronger.

That's exactly that's happening. Marotta and co are scrambling because they got so off-guard with this Chelsea bid. Serious mistake IMO.

Suning have NEVER taken a single PENNY out of Inter. The only thing that have done is loaned (and then written off the loans) us money. If they wanted to take money out of Inter, they could have sold players and forced repayment. Instead, in the 6 months H1 20/21 season, they did >70m euros in debt to equity conversion.
This narrative you keep repeating has
me wondering how much the Zhangs are paying you.
The Zhang family purchased a majority share of Inter to do a number of things that wealthy owners purchase sporting clubs for. Some of which are to move large amounts of cash to evade banking rules, clean dirty money, avoid taxes, funnel money etc. Stop pretending and peddling the narrative that the Zhangs are not getting a return for taking over the club. The Zhangs are some philanthropist family that wants to give back to the Milan community.

Also, it’s much worse to set high expectations, hire the most expensive manager in the league, invest big for a couple year to only then sell it all after you achieved your mission. Spare me and everyone else

Yes, nothing like giving a blank cheque to a football club to "clean dirty money". It's no less ignorant than claiming when Berlusconi sold Milan, it was to clean his own dirty money - anyone who suggests such a thing is ignorant about the basic facts of how financing works. (You dont clean money by selling your own asset for your own money - there have to be (by law) anti-money-laundering checks, and all you've done is sell a legitimate asset. That's not how you clean money. He could have sold Milan for 500mil to someone else for legitimate money).

My point is a simple fact. Suning have never taken a single dividend out of Inter. Dividends must be legally declared in our financial statements. Never a single PENNY have they taken out of the club.


The return they seek is in selling the club at a higher valuation. Which is fine. Even the Glazers and Kroenke take money out of their club.

Don't fucking accuse me of being a shill, when you don't know jack shit about wht you're talking about.

You get those kind of players if you haven't done your due diligence.
That's just the world of signing young players. Sure, we can argue about scouting better, but young players inevitably have a ~40-60% success rate.

But you cannot compare Vlahovic to those fucking bums. We've seen how good Vlahovic is. It wasn't some flash-in-the-pan Euros or anything for him. He banged 21 goals in Serie A and like said, he passes the eye-test by a countrymile.

I'm not criticising Vlahovic to be clear. I'm just saying. Reinvestment on solely youth players might turn into a disaster where we have nothing to show for it in 2 years. I'd like to see some balance in the investment, tbh. Zapata at. reasonable price maybe okay, provided other bits are invested sensibly.

Ridiculous if we sell Lukaku now. Might as well withdraw from Europe beforehand. This is becoming a Joke now. No wonder Conte got the vibes beforehand...

What did you think about Schick, Jovic and Piatek?
