France have been a goldmine for defensive talents, so one can only hope Moncada and Maldini have struck gold in Kalulu.

From what I've seen and heard, he's a conventional centre-back, who's been shifted to right-back. Ergo, quite defensive for a full-back nowadays and the polar opposite of our rumoured right-back target, Aurier.

However, given that Kalulu is defensive minded will give us various opportunites in defence and it will massively benefit Theo on the opposite flank.

5-year contract with an annual salary of €500.000 for a promising backup option can't go wrong. Furthermore, this would allow us to flog either of Calabria/Conti, if not both.

youtube videos indicate he's :

strong
fast
skillful
good defensively
seems to have played a lot as both a CB and RB.
Not much of the traditional overlapping run + crossing from the right foot type plays so far
Seems to be able to switch play with long balls easily and accurately.

could totally see him exploding into the next big thing....esp considering Maldinis track record.

we may not even sign another RB and decide to rotate between him conti and calabria if we really believe in Kalulu's potential.

Calabria sold makes the most sense financially since he's a homegrown player for plusvalenza.

I think he will be a pleasant surprise.

A fun and perhaps slightly encouraging fact is that he has two older brothers who are both professional defenders.

But then we might lose conti for almost nothing next year. Better sell conti now and calabria next year if he doesn't improve.

Don't think anyone is buying Conti for any money considering he's just had surgery....and there's 40 days to the new season.

Calabria makes sense financially...esp since a coupl eof La Liga teams seem to rate him.

Throw him in from day one. Give him 10-15 games as nondisputable #1 RB no matter how he performs. And then we'll see.
Then if he fails, we still got Conti hahaha

With Kalulu's signing, I doubt we sign a RB until one of Conti/Calabria are sold. And I don't see anyone coming in for them unless it's a loan + option.

The bold part is obvious, and it has nothing to do with Kalulu, who will be tested in Primavera and trained tactically for italian football because getting regular playing time, hopefully in the second half of the season.

I hope he gets some chance in the Europa League playoff and in the group stage.

Kalulu is 20, a 20 year old should be tested with first team, you should not care about italian media and the way they have tried to underrated Kalulu, they did the same with Leao last year.

I don't watch any media about sports, but Leao had a professional season before Milan signed him for 23M, i can't immagine italian media downplaying him.

Anyway, despite his obvious talent he's very immature and he needed time. Kalulu has even less experience and he's a defender, wish him good luck but i don't think he will succeed that soon.
