    Inter closed to reaching deal with Real Madrid for Hakimi for around €40m, other players has already agreed to a 5 year contract for €5m a season. Negotiations started secretly in March. (DiMarzio)

    Inter’s transfer policy is really impressive getting the likes of Tonali, Kumbulla and Hakimi is massive

    Isn’t Kumbulla going to Lazio?
    Btw Inter always spent huge amount of money in the past years, but now seems like they are spending them well, with the duo Marotta-Conte they are actually doing signings that fit well with what Conte has in mind, that Hakimi is the definition on “Conte player” aka a full back that can do it all

    Kumbulla got sniped by Lazio.
    A sporting director who tries to get players who would fit the coach's system, who knew it could be possible?

    Now need a dynamic LWB like Goossens, upgrade our bench and we're in business.

    Young CB from Hellas Verona.
    Another big prospect.

    Why can Lecce pass from the back way better and faster than us?
    Why do 90% of our shots end up off target?
    Why does it seem like we don't really care about how this match ends?

    Lecce actually controlled the game until the (deserved) red card.
    Bernardeschi and Cristiano doing their best Gagliardini impression.

    Mentally we just aren't at it.
    Unless we are playing a long game and hope Lecce tire themselves out towards the end.
    But given that also tends to happen to us, it's rather risky.

    They’ll be exhausted with a man down, Petriccione and Falco are the only Serie A grade players on this team IMO.

    Dybala and Bonucci are the only Juve players looking sharp.

    Edit: and Dybala scores.

    The long game worked out in the end, Lecce were physically completely gone.
    Satisfying enough. :smile:

    Of course I shouldn't have said "satisfying enough", apparently Bentancur got subbed off because of a muscle complaint. :D

    They say the flap of a butterfly’s wings in the Amazon can set off a penalty kick to Lazio on the other side of the world.

    For anyone still playing and doesn't yet have him, Ibrahimovic is incredible. Don't notice any issues with his balance, stamina is the real issue but so long as you're not banking on him for 90 mins, it's fine.

    Honestly, I think I'll be skipping FIFA until Juve are properly licensed again. :D
    FIFA 21 on PC will be the last-gen version anyway, like with FIFA 14.
    Best bet on Juve's return will be FIFA 23, given the PES deal will last three years.

    Did they really install massive LCD panels in front of the lowest-tier seats at the San Siro for extra ad space?

    Nothing for Pjanic yet.
    Presumably to spread out the abuse they are going to get.
    Man, the guy touted at the "next Xavi" dumped after two seasons.
    Shocking management.

    Decent financial management, just poor football management. Guess that's what happens when you strip most of the football people of power (at Barca).

    So, we've replaced Pjanic, good.
    With a transfer that makes complete sense for us. A rarity, considering Paratici. Maybe he's learning.
    Now, the rest of the situation...

    Goalkeepers: We should not rely on a 42/43 year-old as a second keeper, no matter how legendary he is. :D But alas, it seems we'll continue at least another year with this frankly pathetic arrangement...
    Fullbacks: Hopefully we'll keep Luca Pellegrini and not send him out on loan again so that Sandro has a proper substitute. Alternatively, replace Sandro altogether and keep Pellegrini. Real RBs desperately needed. Maybe we could get Cancelo back on a discount since he's barely ever used by Guardiola?
    CBs: Replacing Rugani wouldn't hurt. At all. Maybe with Cristian Romero?
    Midfield: Too many inconsistent (Rabiot), injury-prone (Khedira, Ramsey), or downright inadequate (Matuidi). Only one to keep at all costs is Bentancur. A reliable midfield should be high priority, getting a goalscoring allrounder a la Vidal, Allan, or Nainggolan would be a good start.
    Forwards: Replace Higuain or sign a substitute for him. As much as it pains me to say it, but we should cash in on Costa for someone less injury-prone. Get rid of Bernardeschi, or if we can't, hope that Kulusevski can keep him out of the pitch. Do not attempt to sell Dybala to half of Europe. :D

    Anything else? Or is it too much?
