again, why we hire Geoffrey Moncada if eventually our target is DDR, Lovren and real madrid rejects?

This. If we fail to land the top targets Milan are linked with, it's due to the thread title being shit as above. Your move, Hitchens :o

Out of my hands, as shown by those two times I fucked up the match thread name. I provided wins tho.

Mods are free to change the letters.

I like the title if caps are changed or even "Enter With Arrogance"

Kabak to bayern, biggest mistake of his life. After 2 seasons spend on the bench there, he probably end up to a low german or turkish table team
I wish him good luck, fighting for a spot with Sule, Hernandez, Boateng and Pavard

Let's start this thread by wishing our Capitano a happy birthday. Thread started by Hitschens (who atleast has a very positive record when it comes to match threads) as well it started on our Capitanos birthday. If there is a rumour commode that will be successful and bring us glory, it's this one.

There will be a breaking news when he lands back in Milan.

Like this?

BREAKING: A drunk birthday boy Maldini thought he was signing a fan's napkin in Ibiza but it was actually the contract given by the agent of Suso, agreeing to a new contract until 2023 and a wage rise to 7m/year.

Can't get over what I read about the supposed DDR deal in last thread.

Better comparison could be van Bommel. He was 35 when he moved from Bayern to Milan in january 2011. And after that was crucial part of Allegri's midfield in the last Scudetto winning team.

No, Van Bommel was 33.
His last game in the Milan shirt was only 2 weeks after his 35th birthday.

De Rossi turns 36 next month. So basically we'd be signing a 36 year old since that would be his age by the start of next season.

Perfectly put :lol: .

My brain is saying: bad idea.

My gut is saying: this could be the Pirlo move Juve pulled off half a decade ago.

I mean he's free. If he'd come on let's say 3M a year, it would cost us 6M gross per year. On a two-year-deal that would be 12M in total. Not that much. But wages don't affect FFP anyway I think, so...

Jeszuuzz christ this post.

Pirlo? He had just turned 32 when they signed him, and he was a wreck in his final season, at 35. They ditched him when he had just turned 36.

DDR is way older and he was inconsistent and undependable even during his prime. His game is also not as cerebral as Van Bommel's or Pirlo's.
Add to that his massive injury problems.

He's hurt because he got dumped by his love(Roma) and now he's trying to make them jealous by dating a rival.
We should stay away from this drama. There's nothing to gain here.

:lol::lol::lol:
Wages don't affect FFP......what??

I can't believe that a guy that has written so many walls of text on FFP could even think there's a slight possibility wages don't affect FFP.

If wages don't affect FFP then what sort of expenses do you think they look at?
Transfer net spends?
Then how would revenues matter?
What would even be the point of FFP if they don't look at unsustainable wagebills?
C'mon man think for a second.

Please point me to the 1 dude who is wanting this deal of the 50k strong members of the great RnB forums.

This is not one of those cases where someone makes a generalization based on one poster.
Every other active commoder was pro 3.5m deal and used the laughable "locker room presence" argument.

They need to be named and shamed, so here we go:

“Recently De Rossi told me, ‘I’d like to come and work with you,’” he said.

“I said I’d think about it and that if there was the possibility of a collaboration, I’d think about it.

“He’s a player who conveys passion. He’d be a resource. I thought about it and I’m still thinking about it.”
- Giampaolo on DDR.

This was said before DDR said he wanted to continue playing I think. Yes 3.5m is a lot, and yes he'll be 36 by the start of the season. But I really don't think he's going to be there for playing time.

If Reina is possibly out - Sarri wants him - and Biglia going to Fiore - he said he's interested and Montella wants him - then we could use some experience in the team and someone as a backup too. And no, it's not just for the "locker room". It seems Giampaolo among others thing he has something to offer so if they believe so, then trust them on it.

Getting rid of Biglia would already make this a 8/10 summer market

Uruguayan reporter Rodrigo Romano: “Torreira and [Nahitan] Nandez. One will move from England to Italy and the other from Argentina to France.”

I think we'd only get DDR if we let Biglia go to fiorentina since he probably won't play much anyway with us.
Same wages (right?), and we'd get a few mils from Biglia's sale.

Either way, Torreira is gonna be starter. DDR would just be for the locker room and young players, like Reina with Gigio

Same salary. DDR would replace Biglia but won't see much game time. As my above post, it seems he'll be a team "ambassador" kind of role as well as being a bit-part squad member. Good experience to have.
