One of the games we played against Barcelona a few years ago Pique was MOTM. He IS overrated, but in no way is he a bad CB.

Lmao. I have never heard this in my life ever. Are you sure this isn't something you're making up?

You probably weren't frequenting around Man Utd and PL fans at the time. Or the internet (goal.com and the likes). Almost everyone from those Man Utd 2000s teams was overrated. The ones that didn't make the cut were some Brazilians (Fabio, Rafael, Kleberson etc) or legitimate shitshows like Djemba-Djemba or guys like Quinton Fortune.




Life has a way of erasing some things from its memory. Especially when it's blatant propaganda of the sort. But some of it sticks.

I remember Carrick being underrated for years.

Hargreaves is easily the most underrated british player ever and it has to do with his injuries, sadly. He did play for Bayern and United and dare I say a better player than Gerrard

chelsea counting on a 38 year old Silva to be their only CB is like us counting on Dzeko to be our only striker.
Yeah Tuchel should go for De Vrij. Gonna get a quality CB for cheap.

Good, then just have him for this last year if we really can't sell him. He can be our Rano, just playing a bit more

No point selling him for lowball 10M€ offers anymore. Season will be long and DeVrij can still give rest to starters. Incredible Im saying this because he was the best damn defender in Serie A under Conte, then came Skriniar.

Just don't sign for Rube next year. If the crooks did it with Lucio, they will do it with DeVrij.

That's okay, I think Lautaro would roast him, honestly.

De Vrij is still a good defender and at 29-30 can play for another 4 years at least.

Considering one of the back 3 will be sold, some stability would be preferred. His replacement, which at this point is unlikely to be Bremer, may not be as good.

Ok, but doesn't want to renew on Inter's terms, which means that he will ask for increased salary. And he clearly is not deserve it, so the best solution is to sell him now, even for 10 mln.
The only condition, I'd accept him staying is if Bremer keeps his word to wait for Inter, and we decide to get him in January for 15 mln.

IMO one season of De Vrij is worth more than 10m€ + his salary. That 10m-ish plusvalenza doesn't help us too much anyway. We would lose a starting CB and we would have to replace him. If we sell Bastoni/Skriniar on top of De Vrij (because De Vrij would fetch only 10m€), we would have to buy two starting CBs.

There's been rumors of Bremer and Milenkovic for example. I'd feel more comfortable with Bremer-De Vrij-Bastoni than Milenkovic-Bremer-Bastoni. Milenkovic could even cost more than De Vrij in this scenario (De Vrij for 10m€).

Milenkovic would cost more if we get him for 15mln and sell SDV for 10 mln, but his salary will be around 2.5-3 mln, with De Vrij earning 4.5 mln now, so the difference won't be so big at the end.
If SDV stays and leaves as free agent next summer, we shall replace him anyway, but he will fetch exactly 0 profit. I'd risk with Milenkovic-Bremer-Bastoni, instead to hope that SVD will have a good last season, and the current one was just a temporarily drop of his shape.
