Actually I think marquinhos was the most complete young centerback I've seen in a while. Moreso than varane, Laporte, etc

Agreed. It's very difficult to find a CB who is consistent defensively nowadays, (and that's why the young ones are being priced so high, since there's little value in the experienced part of the market)...

Among the good ones, Marquinhos stands out a little probably. Ahead of Benatia, Bonucci, the Atleti CBs and possibly Hummels.

Best young defenders in the world are Gimenez and Zouma.

Best CB is Godin

Unfortunately it seems that we will pick Romagnoli because he was trained by Miha last year. He knows him better than most.

Silently hoping that somehow shit goes wrong and we go for Laporte. Alessio 's agent did say Milans lack of European football does act as a stumbling block, hopefully big enough to not come so we can 'settle' for the new Nesta. I doubt he would be sold for less than his clause. I don't think the management rates him that highly and I think that's s mistake. We have to buy him at that price before our European opponents will. They're all in search of a great CB and they don't come better than this at 21. Laporte's ready for the big stage.
Again this is the trap that leads many to think footballers progress linearly. Even if (that's a huge call firstly) Laporte is better than Nesta or Maldini or Baresi when all of them were 21, there's absolutely nothing to ensure he'll continue to be better than them when they are 25 or 30 or 35..

All evidence suggests the opposite in fact. You cannot predict how much a footballer will increase his effectiveness from 21 to 26 or from any other age range.

Buying young players is all about blind trust and some confidence in the level that they've already reached. We can't say anything conclusive about Laporte or Romagnoli beyond what they've already achieved.

i dont disagree with laporte's valuation . But do we go all out and pay 50 mil for him and carry on with paletta as the other cb or buy romagnoli and get another solid starting centre back for another 20 million

Roma's Walter Sabatini reportedly blocked any possible transfer of Alessio Romagnoli to Milan.

The 20-year-old defender impressed last season during his loan at Sampdoria and has attracted the interest of several clubs, in particular the Rossoneri.

Milan had already signed Andrea Bertolacci from Roma in a very similar fashion, but sporting director Sabatini was quoted by Il Corriere della Sera as being opposed to any kind of transfer.

?Romagnoli won't be sold, he must not be sold,? said the Giallorossi director.
I never thought we had a chance, headed toward optimism as I'm a huge fan, so now we must destroy Sabatini. Get. Romagnoli. Now.

Neco, I've not been a fan of your new character/recent heel turn, but this post is the best post on this forum in a very long time. Well done.

Like hell he did. He will sell any player for the right amount. We would have to overpay of course, but if it's not too much, I say do it.

Why the hell would roma sell something they desperately need? manolas romagnoli sounds like a duo with good potential. Maybe lack experience i guess.

Why thank you. The heel turn was necessary to keep myself interested in posting every day. There's only so much one can do with straight-laced, tactic-related posts.

his appearance is 30 last season
Sampdoria itself managed to finish to top table
he's also under Mihajlovic guidance

so Miha already familiar with his style, so the odds of success is fairly high if you train with same coach

i say Milan should pursue him, as for the money as long as we can afford him, i don't care about the amount, we're very rich guys

You lot have to remember Miha has coached this lad already. He's worth what Miha thinks he's worth, and it sounds like ?18m-?20m.
