Crazy to sell De Vrij. Skriniar is my favourite player in the team but he rushes forward too much. Not the best candidate for the holding CB position. Bastoni can offer so much more in the LCB position. His diagonal pass is second to none and his dribbling is probably better than Dimarco's. It'll be a waste to fix Bastoni in the middle.
We can use him as a "Libero". Hehe

de Vrij is our most underrated defender. As a club, I do not think that Inter should put him in the shop window or think that he can be easily replaced.

A defender of his caliber and experience is a real asset that will in all likelihood only be realised and understood when his replacement is not up to standard.

Why replace something that is not broken?

Management should get to work on his renewal.

I'll trust the management to do what is right. Either he gets fat new wages or we sell/give him (hopefully not) to a rich foreign club

He'll be doing good in Serie A for the next 2-3 years but if we want to progress deep in Champions League we'll need fresh blood.

I can't think of a defender in top 5 European Leagues playing for top 4 clubs in their respective league that is slower and clumsier than him and it's not like he's getting any younger.

Now is the right time to capitalise on him imho, same like it was with Lukaku.

I love our D-line a lot, like a lot; but some people seem to very undervalue him, cause he doesn't have a lot of the flashy moves and clutch def; however, he gets the basic very good, like his timing to close up the ball receiver, space covering etc. In short, it is his "mental attributes" that makes him a good defender despite not having the super outstanding physical attributes. Also he is not exactly slow or weak.

I don't think people undervalue him. He is great defender. That being said:
1, there are rumors he might want to leave
2, his agent is Raiola, therefore negotiations might reach dead end and he could leave as a free agent. Like he did leave Lazio
3, Center of back 3 is easiest to replace, I am sure someone like Bremer would do great job there
4, He is 29

If he stays, great. If he leaves, we better cash on him this summer.

Bremer is going to be one hell of a defender. He is physical, quick, smart + he is 24. I would let SDV go at the end of season, if he wants to leave, and get Bremer like right now.

I think the contract negotiation is affecting his performance. Come on De Vrij, you have a beautiful wife with her own company/career. You can do better than this. You need to fire Raiola and get back on track.

Hmm, Raiola couldn’t do anything right now, he’s in hospital

I respect this guy. He's a good player by all means. But he's not, has never been, and will never be a top player. However, he is considered as such. We should definitely cash in on him. The centre of a 3 man defence is the easiest spot. I think Bremer would make us forget this guy in no time. Not saying De Vrij is crap. But he's the most expendable of our team right now. And he's nearing the end of his peak. He's error prone even if he looks classy on the pitch. This is not new, even when we played with him and Skriniar under Spallo I remember him making a few mistakes.

I wouldn't discredit him yet. But we'll all agree it'd be easier to replace De Vrij's position than Bastoni's, for example. Let's see what he's asking for. If we can afford him, some stability in the team isn't a bad thing.

Now is the right time to sell if he attracts some interest.

Selling him could cost us the league. In the summer I think all of us would celebrate if he is the only starter that is sold. Now .... our starter would be D'am or Rano
