After two years at PSG, Achraf Hakimi is reportedly pushing for a return to Inter Milan where he had previously won a Scudetto title under the guidance of Antonio Conte in the 2020/21 campaign.
Make it happens.

Make it fucking happen. Monetize with Dumfries with EPL and try Lukaku style loan deal with PSG for Hakimi. We can even use the growth decree since he's been two years out (in July). If there's a chance for Hakimi return, do everything to accomplish it.

This would make our team instantly better. There are also reports Ten Hag want Dumfries at United for something like 35-40 million.

I saw an interview on the Dutch television with Dumfries witch was recorded two days before the final where Dumfries was asked about his future. His answer; it’s an honor to play for Inter, as it’s one of the biggest clubs in the world. As a kid he looked up to Drogba. After his vacation he will see what the market does.

IMO he’s looking for the Premie League. And that’s only good for us!

First i want to clarify i rate Augusto highly. I really like this rumour. He was easily one of the best lwb of the league, he would give a serious competition to Dimarco and he can also cover for Bastoni. I had even suggested him in the past.

Carlos Augusto. He's having a good season with Monza, Mancini called him to Italy and i think he would be a good option as Dimarco/Bastoni backup. No idea how much they would ask for him but his contract expires in 2024.

But this rumour makes no sense. We have much bigger needs, there are no rumours about Gosens leaving and i can't see where the German could go.

Bayern are set with Davies and Guerreiro. Dortmund just signed Bensebaini. And since Gosens is a Schalke fan it's unlikely he would ever go to Dortmund. Leipzig have Raum and Halstenberg while they also have Angelino returning from Hoffenheim. Raum struggled in his first season but they won't give up on him so soon. Leverkusen signed Grimaldo. Freiburg, Eintracht and Union don't have the money. Who's left? Wolfsburg who don't even play in Europe?

I just don't see a market for Gosens.

"No issues with the personal terms", most probably means that we offered him 3 mln net, and it will be impossible to get rid of him, if he flops.

Realistically, we're probably offering him between 1-1.5m. Dimarco is making 1.2m iirc after we quadrupled his wage last year, can't see we offer this guy much more than that.

Why it doesn't make sense? We are preparing for the case Gosens might leave. If we are finding a buyer, we let him go and we have Augusto ready.

Hakimi would cost at least 50-60M, so good luck with that. Even if we sell Dumfries we wont be able to get him... Perhaps a loan, but idk why would PSG want that. Even if he has underperformed for them, he's still their best option.

Satriano+10m for Vicario, Chalobah 30m, Koulibaly for 8m loan, Lukaku for 8m loan.
Hakimi can be another loan for 8m, it possible if we can sell Dumfries to AstonVilla and won't redeem Bellanova for give Zanotti a chance.

Who the fuck is Chalobah? and how much his price? 30M? what!
I agree that we can find a better option for 30 million, so I think we were satisfied with Koulibaly 8m loan, Lukaku 8m loan + 40m in cash for Onana.
