Guess we were even crazier with Skriniar last year
At the time there was still uncertainty about whether Skriniar would stay and extend should we not sell him, with SMS it is now reported he will definitely not extend, so the situations are not exactly comparable.

If it was publicly confirmed that Skriniar wouldn’t stay, than yes, I would’ve said we were crazy for not accepting the 50 mil we were reported to be offered by PSG

That's why I fucking hate that cunt. Skriniar could go anywhere he wants. But should tell the club beforehand and not faking the "love" to both the club and fans. Had he really thought of Inter he should have bought us a lot of money. Like Hakimi.

New Hamsik my ass. Don't insult the Napoli legend.

I don't side with Skriniar, but I'm not going to hate him.

The same club that bought K-Dog, Joao Mario and Gabigol for too much money, the same club that brought back Lukaku on a costly loan after selling him, the same club that gave Kolarov a contract that he wasn't worth at all, the same club that paid off Sanchez even tho HE wanted to leave, the same club that spent too much money on Correa... got some bad karma back.

Is it right - from the perspective of fans? No. But does this club deserve a slap every now or then? Absolutely yes. I hope the manner of Skriniar's departure will WAKE UP our owner that we need to do something differently or this will continue.

Wtf is this logic? Do you even understand what does the term "karma" mean?

Di Marzio reported Juve and Inter have enquired about SMS and Lotito has responded that the price is 40m.

Pedulla reported that price could be lower.

Lower or not, the salary and possible agent's fee shall be considered as well. I calculated it before, and for 5 years his cost will be between 80-100 mln. Maybe it's worth it if we have money enough. But we don't have.

It's unrealistic anyway, Juve have first to sell someone important. Can't imagine they have the money for SMS. And let's assume they sell Vhlaovic, they still have to get another good striker then.

They sold Kulusevski for 30m.

Yeah. I do.
You react as if we didn't pay Skriniar or freezed him out or something. That is what karma is.

In this situation we gave him the captain armband and offered to double his salary. Yeah we had made mistakes in transfers but had nothing to do with Skriniar, karma what?

Overall karma. Players will want to leave if we keep losing money on players that don't fit us and then the management keeps pushing some players out because we need the money.

I don't hate Skriniar, I just hate how much we used to like him and overrate him.

It's unfair to ask a player to put up with all the bullshit the management has, so no hard feelings whatsoever. But for a player who could have been a club legend, I did wish he could make the sacrifice. Then it was also weird how much the fans overrated him while no one in the football world seemed to. Inter clearly didn't rate him, we tried so ship him all the time. Other clubs didn't seem to rate him as well. He's in his prime and the two serious offers he's ever had were from Spurs and PSG, the 2 clubs who are notoriously bad at buying players. Somehow he never attracted interests from Bayern Chelsea Barca. I just hate that we lost him to PSG and not some top clubs.

I don't think Inter never rated him - we tried to ship him because we needed the money. That's clearly not the same.

Mate these c*ntz get paid millions to kick a ball, live in Milan where models throw themselves at players all the time. And half the city idolises you….

It it’s unfair if a club needs to think of itself and prioritise it’s books? Lol FOH.

These players are spoilt. If Skrniar loved this club he could have been honest long time again so we could have made the PSG transfer. Instead he strung the club and the fans along for more money in his and his agents pocket which they have every right to do. But don’t tell me they’re in an unfair position!

I just want one thing regarding SMS. Him staying at Lazio and leaving on a free in 2024. I don't care where to. But watching that greedy bastard Lotito losing his most priced asset on a free would be worth it.

It will never happen, they agreed for a transfer already, please remember that 5 years ago the player signed an extension while being almost free agent, so that he could pay back Lotito for his trust, let's say so.
In fact, they are in good relation and this summer he's going to leave for the best offer Lazio can get, I just say watch out for PSG or some shit like that, while we look around as we did last summer.
