Suning will splash cash 1x in a decade for 3 different position line. Defense, mid and attack. We already did with Pavard. So expect a free scrub ( who still be awesome for us )

Handanovic scouted Kayode
Michael Kayode is one of Inter‘s primary targets to replace Denzel Dumfries, provided the Dutch wing-back doesn’t sign a contract extension.

Inter have scouted Kayode several times this season and are preparing for a meeting with the defender’s entourage.

The promising right-back has also emerged as a transfer target for Arsenal, but he recently signed a contract extension with the Tuscans until June 2028.
What do you think think of him?
Kayode, who scored the winner for Italy U19 in last summer’s European Championship Final against Portugal, currently earns €400,000 per season. However, his salary will rise to €1m in the final year of his contract at the Stadio Franchi.
Now I see why the club likes him 😆

+ Edit:

Linked to Hermoso
Beppe Marotta is preparing to draw up an offer for Juventus target Mario Hermoso ahead of the summer, reports suggest.

The 28-year-old Spanish centre back has three months left on his contract with Atletico Madrid and he’s not planning to sign a new deal, ready for a new adventure in the summer. Milan and Juventus have already set their sights on the defender, keen to bring him to Serie A.

Inter are unsure whether or not to keep Francesco Acerbi in their squad, despite his recent acquittal in the Juan Jesus racism row. The 36-year-old could be sold in the summer in order to make space for fresh blood in Simone Inzaghi’s squad.

Page six of Gazzetta dello Sport details how Inter director Marotta is interested in snapping up Hermoso in the summer should Acerbi depart and has started to plan out an offer, which the Atletico defender will happily listen to.
The 28-year-old, who is comfortable in a three-man defence and as a left wing back, is looking for a contract worth around €5m net per season.

Kayode is very good for his age and I'd like to see him at Inter.

On Hermoso, maybe to take De Vrij's role? I believe he can also play in Bastoni's role (don't like seeing Acerbi or De Vrij there).

Hermoso has largely played on the left of a back three for Atletico. However, the Gazzetta reports, Inter also believe that Hermoso could play more centrally.

The Spaniard does have the qualities that the club are looking for as far as defending the penalty area.
Gazzetta report that Inter’s interest in Hermoso is more than just a passing consideration.

The Nerazzurri are readying their offer to the 28-year-old: 5M + add-ons. 🤔 Isn't that a bit much?

Yes the rumour on Hermoso seems strong.

Skriniar compensation? Same age similar salary and position.

Hermoso doesn't play as a middle CB for Atleti so I'm not really understanding the rumor. He's only 29 when next season begins, I doubt he's looking for a backup/part-time gig.

Hermoso makes sense only if we part ways with another defender. I don't believe that we'll just add that 5mln salary to the squad.

Hermoso makes sense for Milan, not us.

Would be useful as a Bastoni backup but doubt he'd want that. Don't see why Atletico won't renew him though

Acerbi isn't getting any younger. He will be 37 next year, so it's wise to prepare. Hermoso never played in Serie A, so by the time Acerbi's contract expires, 1 year of calcio university will assure Hermoso's smooth transition.

Official: our finances have improved, so the management can allocate from the overall budget extra funds for additional wage and agent commission, since this move would not involve a transfer fee.

Certainly seems so! Hermoso has been performing well this season, justifying his salary demands.

It makes sense to keep on adding top valued free players when the opportunity arises. We've been doing this very smartly these years and it's been working out well - both sporting wise and or our finances.

The idea is not to be o have undoubted starters. Marotta just keeps improving squad depth. Having competition for each position won't let anyone slip into sleep mode (De Vrij past season?).

Reason: Atletico have been trying to reduce their wage bill. Hermoso currently earns 4.5M and Atletico offered him less for a renewal. He's in his prime, so seems logical to expect more. This is why Inter or Juventus could sign him on a 5M deal.

Atletico Madrid have already begun searching for Hermoso’s replacement, which is an indication that they don’t expect him to sign a new deal. Las Palmas’ Mika Marmol has been linked, while it’s also been reported that they would like to sign Barcelona veteran Inigo Martinez.
I believe this is an indication that he signed with another club. Hopefully it's ours.

CdS: Inter studying Dutch CB Sam Beukema from Bologna. They payed 9M for him, current value is 18M.
Was this the tall guy that scored against us in the Coppa? Stockholm syndrome confirmed 😁

Radio Kiss Kiss says Inter are pushing for 30 years old Napoli captain Di Lorenzo
I don't think the club wants to deal with ADL, so I call BS. Probably ADL is making this up so it seems that he's able to keep him / captain is faithful.

Earlier in the season, I've read some rumors that ADL wants to sell him. I don't recall the reason why though.
I'm not surprised that we are linked to him. He fits perfectly into Inzaghi's criteria and if the price is reasonable, I don't mind it.

What worries me is that Zhang will fuck up and we'll be selling Barella and Lautaro because we won't have the money for renewals

Barella already declined City, so I don't see him leaving. Lautaro could be sold but he is ambitious. I'm not sure that he will go to some struggling team like ManU or Chelsea, only because of money.

Oh sweet summer child. There are already instances of our management not finishing the contract talks fast enough. It's my biggest concern that because we won't have the money, that Zhang will order to sell a few players to stabilize the clubs finances.
