I dont think 17mil is a fantastic deal. I think he is overpriced.
I don't know how did you come up with the 17mil number but there is no way in hell that Faraoni is worth 12mil. And even if he was, paying 17 mil for a world class GK is a great deal. Try to name 10 better GKs than Handanović. Go.
Plus we dont really need a new GK. Plus they got Faraoni that they wanted.
You are grasping at straws here. How does us not needing a GK makes Pozzo hard to deal with? What are you even talking about?How does that affect Pozzo's stance? When you evaluate the deal on its own
without thinking about the whole Cesar fiasco, it's a pretty sweet deal.
Pozzo isnt easy to deal with, he is a money whore, and we dont have enough of it to satisfy him.
The guy is making smart business decisions and trying do the his best in interest of the club he is running. The idea that he is motivated by irrational hate towards Inter and he is open to business to everyone else is entirely fictional and is not based on facts. Handanović deal puts the dagger in the heart of that ridiculous notion.
The kind of scouting Udine have, they can easily find good young players to replace Handanovic. Yes I agree its not the same for a GK compared to outfiled players.
You said it yourself. Also, bear in mind that Udinese despite being a selling club has also been a pretty competetive team for years. They've managed to win the CL qualification spot 3 times in the last 7 years which is pretty good and if Platini didn't screw up the whole qualification system they would probably played it 3/3.
20million for Asamoah and Isla, if we even bid that much, we would never get them to agree. He would simply make Jube raise the price or terms or conditions.
Except there is ZERO evidence to this opinion, just fantasy talk. Also,I would not classify getting Juventus to raise their offer as hate towards Inter but a smart business move. We could obviously just outbid them and get the player we want. Simple as that.
