I hope we can still dump Eriksen out with a loan deal so that we maybe pay part of his salary. His salary is so big that releasing part of it would allow us to sign a loan player with a modest salary.

Let's see what happens, but now with the Juventus match out of the way, our Scudetto hopes are high and up again. We should double down on that and find all possible ways to reinforce the squad. We NEED the title.

Tomori & Mandzukic are not top transfers, but two very useful players to cover some of the gaps at Milan. Its obvious that Milan see an opportunity to win the scudetto, and they are going for it.

Inter see the same opportunity, and 2-3 cheap buys/loans could really help us cover our gaps (LWB, 4th Striker), but we are broke.

Small things like these can be the difference in morale/motivation needed to win the Scudetto.

To me, Meite is even more important signing for them.

Milan is asking for Firpo and Barca set the price at 20m :palm: Still Milan say it too expensive.
Remember their Firpo 40m + cash for Lautaro bullshit?!?
Next time they approach any player, even Padelli, 200m please.

I doubt we're signing anyone, even if we dump Eriksen.

We dump Eriksen and even get 10 million for his transfer it goes to Real Madrid for what we owe them

Same with Vecino. We are crazy broke and teams know this. They will low ball us for players.

I am just irritated that these fuckers couldn't sort out the investment or a loan before the transfer window

Looks like Milan is trying to sign Junior Firpo on loan with option to buy when they already have Theo at LB. Shame we are broke AF. Would be a perfect deal for us right now. Would stop our left wing from being a liability.

It can't be worse than during settlement agreement period when we could loan Cedric Soares. We can't be that broke.

We do not have cash now.
In previous years we just did not have the flexibility, or ability, to spend whatever funds we had.

this thread is hilarious. Milan signing Meite (which is no better than Vecino), Tomori that never proved to be even a decent CB and Mandzukic which i like but didn't play much since 18/19 and was free agent since the begining of July. Oh wait, and now they want the almighty Firpo. Everyone panicking like they signed M'bappe and Sancho.

This mercato shows perfectly that our squad is way better than Milan, even Juve and Napoli have better squads. Pioli is doing amazing job there, but winning the scudetto race it's up to us and our biggest rival is Inter itself.

Inter bench isn’t deep enough to go all the way and have no money to reinforce. We also don’t use youth players for anything other than as bargaining chips in trades

We are athletico Madrid right now. Best team in Spain and at a point Europe. Lost 1 starter and went to shit. If you look at our bench half these dudes wouldn’t start for Spezia and are on at least 1.5 million euro contracts

Substitutes vs Juve:

27 Padelli, 97 Radu, 5 Gagliardini, 7 Sanchez, 11 Kolarov, 12 Sensi, 13 Ranocchia, 14 Perisic, 24 Eriksen, 36 Darmian, 99 Pinamonti

yeah, that's not enough to win the league. please...

The most important is Lukaku in good condition until end of season, otherwise INTER will struggle to finish in top 4

Right now there are 4 gaps in the squad. Backup side cb, vice Brozovic. starting left wingback and a vice Lukaku. But with Inter out of Europe the only real necessity is a player for the left wing. Sadly we're broke and we can't sign anyone in January. Even without signings, the squad depth is pretty good to go all the way against these Juventus and Milan barring an injury or covid crisis.

Barca won’t do us favors they dislike us as much as Man U/Chelsea do

The lack of decent CB options is what has me the most worried at the moment. The quality drop off between the starting backline and bench options is.. significant...

A quality LWB would bring the biggest improvement in the starting XI and also more depth, but if we're forced into playing Kolarov, I'm not sure I would feel very safe.

vice-Lukaku should be a pre-requisite for next season, but it's probably a luxury we can do without with only seriea A and Coppa to play for the rest of the year *knock on wood*
