Unless we sell, we have RR.. and in the worst case scenario if both RR and Strinic are injured.. i guess Borini can play 1 or 2 games as 3rd option. IF he cant even do that, then why keeping him anyway

Mate it's as clear as day.

The whole Laxalt scenario was brought about by Genoa not having the funds to pay for Lapadula (which is questionable since they got close to 50m from Perin, Izzo and Pellegri).

We can't afford to write it off as bad debt, nor can we agree to have Genoa spread out payments.

After they flipped Perin, Pellegri and Salcedo, there is not one player on their roster that would potentiallyy increase in value moving forward, aside from Laxalt.

It's more of a business decision as opposed to a footballing one.

So suddenly everything must be perfect.

You guys are incredible.

Just praying Caldara - Romagnoli clicks ASAP!

With Bakayoko, Castilejo and Laxalt am calm.

Can we start a petition for him to wear Diego or his nickname on his back pls?

I don't want to see that ugly name Laxalt on our kits.

We have also set a terrible precedent by agreeing to take less for Carlos Bacca despite having a contractual option in place.

Genoa probably saw it as an opportunity to swindle out of Lapadula's obligation.

i'm positive that leo has something on his mind with this deal, is it rabiot or money for mms, we'll see.

it's idiotic to spend 18m on third LB when we badly need LCM, there has to be something behind deal.

I wouldn't say he was skinned. He held Mbappe until reinforcements came, his cross didn't lead to the goal itself, the midfield could have closed pogba down and blocked the shot, subasic could have saved it if his positioning wasn't shit, etc etc. You can't blame him for that goal

unless RR leaves, this move is nonsense

PSG were rejected for Alex Sandro today, pray for some panic

We finished 3rd with Gattuso in charge and strengthening the bench was the priority. Having cutrone, laxalt, samu and baka is a huge upgrade.

If you chose to jump on the positivity bandwagon and convinced yourself that we were going to sign players for 50m it's your problem.

Agree with this somewhat. Depth was the main issue and it’s looking a lot better now. I don’t think we’ll see much more of Borini at least.

But speaking of depth, we are still in need of another CM. Berto as a vice-Bona isn’t good enough, but I feel that if we don’t sign another MF then Hakan probably slots into that role and either Samu/Laxalt goes to LW.

That being said, this whole time Milan’s most reliable sources in PBP and Vito have said that Bakayoko’s arrival does not exclude another mid arriving - and even threw out Rabiot as a hot name still. I feel like Leo will pull something off in the last couple of days.

Fit? Overall ability? Something entirely different?

Looking forward to reading your answer, I'll be off for now.

Also the Bakayoko stereotyping doesn't surprise me one bit - after all we have a bunch of people that assume that just because Gattuso's strength were defensive that his tactical input is limited to that.

First of all, you're too kind. Thank you.

I'm not disputing that he's a very good player. I just think that, even with this inflated market, he's not worth 100m. If the number was 60m, I'd be more open.

I also think his closest comparison is Pogba. They play that same "roaming central midfielder" spot, but Pogba has more athleticism. SMS has a surprisingly good touch for a guy his size, but I've yet to see him take a big game and just boss it. I've seen Pogba do it.

I also think he wouldn't do well here if his job is to be an LCM. Pogba played badly at Utd when Mourinho put him as part of a midfield 3. Pogba was at his best as the tip of a central midfield triangle, where SMS does the most damage as well.

I just feel like we need someone who is more dynamic. I'm not the biggest Verratti fan, but I think he's the profile we need. Maybe a little more attacking , but someone like him. If Bona released the ball faster and was more consistent I'd say we are fine as we are.

inter will be lucky to make it to EL this season.

my prediction: about 4-5 weeks in this year's season they'll just tell us we can wear the 8th CL badge on our sleeve and let our players chill for the rest of the season (silver medal goes to Juve ofc, buffon gets one as well)

nah, his instagram only has like a dozen posts and he looks way too normal in them. the only way we pick him up is if he posts himself wearing a pink tutu and a shirt that looks like it survived hiroshima 73 years ago
