INTER AND JUVENTUS GEARING UP FOR SCALVINI DUEL
Giorgio Scalvini is the next best thing coming out of Bergamo and has attracted the attention of a number of top clubs, including Inter and Juventus.

The 19-year-old Italian defender initially started out with local side Brescia before switching to Atalanta’s youth system in July 2015. After progressing up their ranks, he was promoted to the first team in August 2021 following a successful spell with the Primavera squad.

Scalvini has been one of the revelations of this season for Atalanta, scoring two goals across his 14 Serie A appearances under Gian Piero Gasperini.

As reported by Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com, Atalanta are preparing to hold a summer auction for Scalvini, with many top sides around Europe keen on the teenager.

Inter and Juventus are both seriously interested, with the former ready to offer Giovanni Fabbian in exchange, and the latter already holding talks with the defender’s agent.

Whilst a transfer market Derby d’Italia approaches, the two Serie A sides will need to be wary of competition from abroad, with teams like Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool all concretely keen too.
Fingers crossed Dumfries is being sold for ~60M 😊

reading Skriniar will leave for free and has informed Inter he will not be renewing....

Depressing.
I always wondered how these negotiations go and in my head this is how it should have happened.

Rewind 18/12 mths ago
Inter: Milan 6M for x amount yrs - This is our best and final, we need to know if this is good enough or not. Understandably on the open market you're salary is 50% higher but we have a poofter owner who is a cheap cunt. If you dont sign, which club would be interested in signing for?

Skriniar: I love the club, but i need to look after my family and my big breasted wife. The offer is not good enough. I'd like to make a deal with PSG

Inter: Its unfortunate but we understand. We'll play hardball with PSG but will get the deal done for the benefit of everyone and wish you the best

******************
Summer 22/23
PSG: 60M for Skriniar
Inter: no 80M
8 weeks later
Inter: okay 60M
*Skriniar leave for Paris
*Inter sign Bremer

We should offer 7 and call it a day. I know we won't get a replacement for cheaper when we factor wages+ transfer fee.... but we can't afford 8 million for a CB. It shouldn't have taken this long to sign him. We should have given him till the summer then sold to PSG if he hadn't said yes.

This is a massive fumble by management and will make it even harder to sell this club.

If we cannot afford Okoli or Scalvini, which high chances we cannot, maybe we should buy another "Acerbi" + Diego Coppola, he looks very very promising, have the physic and aggressive stopper plays, even he is not exact Inter level ready; but given Verona has been shit this season, we might be able to snatch him for a reasonable price.
I just feel like he is a good candidate for the mix of young and experienced.

I really don't want us to go for Becao and call it a day.

IMHO Tajon is also a good sign, I am not sure if I am bias though.

What I think isn't going to matter shit anyway.

Biasin said Inter top targets for Skriniar replacement are Scalvini and Schuurs (even though his style is closer to De Vrij) but the problem is budget is 0.

Then they aren't really targets just wishful thinking.

I don't think anyone has any serious doubts about it. They're just throwing names to show "they tried" but they couldn't do anything better with zero budget.

The truly fun part will be if they don't get a high offer for Dumfries in the summer, like they expect, and then they have to sell one of Lautaro, Barella and Bastoni.

Surely this time we won't secure someone like Scalvini now, unlike last winter when we got Gosens already as Perisic replacement.

I am pretty sure Smalling will be the De Vrij replacement... I won't overreact just yet, and think he is the Skriniar one... Gds is also mentioning Scalvini.
