    Btw Perin is official now.

    No #PER1N yet, I'm disappointed. :D
    At least that's our goalkeepers sorted, now the rest of the squad...

    See, I'm not that convinced.

    Surely Cancelo seems a better player, but...
    1) he was pretty decent at Inter - jokes aside, it's not THAT hard to stand out in this team
    2) actually, while everyone in here is **** over him, I haven't seen that many great opinions about him in other sources - people say he's been good and that's it
    3) he can only attack, and is a liability in defence
    4) he costs 3-4 times more than Darmian
    5) I've always had a soft spot for Darmian, and I think he would gain his former back under Allegri

    Having said all of this, Cancelo seems to be a much better option for the first team than Darmian. And it's a dig at Inter so that's cool :sunglasses:

    Time to follow women's football.
    The Italian national women's team have qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 20 years. :D

    I can finally agree with alemas on something. Cancelo is a good player, he played well for Valencia and his time at inter doesn't tell the whole story. I think he's the appropriate replacement for alves.

    Let's also not forget that he complained that inter was not playing him in his natural position.

    Shhhhh, he could still play as a winger in case of emergencies. :smile:

    Oh great.
    We might have another footballing scandal in Italy.
    A few days before the decisive match to secure promotion against Spezia, a couple of Parma players messaged two of their opponents... apparently telling them to not be all that water-tight in defence. One of the opponents played in the match, the other stayed on the bench.
    Here's the kicker... apparently the FIGC's prosecutor's office have opened an inquiry and already questioned the players involved.
    Considering how Gilardino, an ex-Parma player, missed a penalty during the match...
    Could get ugly.

    I just read that Valencia want 40 mil for cancelo idk about all that. I like him but not for that price.

    Our cross-town rivals being useful again, after their draw against Napoli helped us win the title.
    This afternoon a rumour popped up about Marchisio going to Torino, with their sporting director travelling to Ibiza, where our player was spending the holidays, to try to convince him to join them.
    This was Torino's reply.

    "Fake news of the day: Marchisio to Torino".
    Thanks! :D
    Not really needed, in the end, but it's refreshing to see a football club being honest about it all...

    Cancelo apparently would like to join us.
    Problem: We could send Pjaca to Valencia to sweeten the deal.
    I want to see him play for us for God's sake...
    Oh, and it seems Roma are willing to sell Nainggolan to Inter.
    They want at least 40 million (which for a player like him sounds like peanuts despite his age), but there could be a couple of Inter youngsters inserted in the deal.

    Looks like giving Pjaca to Valencia for Cancelo is a very real possibility. :disappointed:

    Milan have bought Brescia's women's team.
    FYI, Brescia were in this year's final along with Juve.

    Thoughts on Radja possibly leaving for Inter, possibly for peanuts plus some youngster, @L_immortale?

    Nainggolan would be an amazing signing but I can't help but feel we could spend the money building a team that would last longer than the 3/4 years Nainggolan will last running the show.

    Aren't you bound by FFP rules anyway?
