He's almost as good as gone, last transfer season we offered him to Fiorentina for a swap with Pasquale.
Two good games don't cancel previous performances. If you take into account how he played last season, 2 mill is the most we should offer him. I don't blame him for wanting to leave, he got a good agent at milking the best possible deal so I wouldn't be surprised that he probably already has offers lined up for 3+ million per year.
If he plays like this the entire year, he deserves a 3 mill salary but at that point, I'm sure Raiola will find other teams willing to pay more.
I don't consider him a big loss, some games he's played good and some he hasn't, he'll be almost 29 when next season starts and fullbacks have usually a faster decline than other positions, especially someone like Abate that relies heavily on speed.
Agree with what you said. But the problem is it's really difficult to find a better replacement for him on the right knowing our limited resources
