This is been discussed as nauseam. Pinamonti is about half the talent.
How is Pinamonti half the talent if they have the same stats with one of them playing with the likes of Berardi and Traoré and the other with Bajrami and Cutrone ?

I get that most see him as not good enough and plusvalenza material just because he is an Inter product, it's what we've been doing for ages but how is everybody fine with the idea of selling a 23 years old striker after a good season 20M when basically any young player with half a season in Serie A is sold 10-15 millions. The way we consistenly underrate our own players is nuts.

We want to have the buyback clause. That reduces the price.

I guess that's a reason.
Then again are we going to keep doing this ? iirc we did the exact same thing when he went to Genoa.

With Genoa it was a plusvalenza deal. We had gentlemen agreement to get him back anyway. Now we are selling him to generate money. Buyback clause is just for the case he blossoms.

Guys there are many reasons why Pinamonti is worth less than those 2 sassuolo strikers and all are valid ones:

1) Both Raspadori and Scammaca have played for Italian NT and are considered part of the 1st team by now. This enough is worth 5-10 M more in the market
2) They have a perceived talent ceiling which is higher than the one expected by Pina. Even though , as of today , they might have the same stats the expectation cross scouts/directors/medias etc is that their potential is higher than the potential that Pina has . This also is worth 5-10M at least
3) Pinas wage is too high for his current ability . This decreases the negotiation power from the club because whichever team decides to buy him has to spend more on his salary therefore they try to reduce the spend on acquisition
4) Pina is a player completely out of the rotation at Inter , everyone knows he won't play a minute if he stays and everyone knows Inter needs the money. Raspadori and Scammaca on the other side were/are key players for Sassuolo , a club which doesn't need desperately to sell and has proven in the past ( Berardi ) that unless receives an offer considered enough won't sell . All of these influence the negotiation price of the players

If the above reasons weren't enough just ask yourself a question. If you had Lukaku , Lautaro & one of Correira/Dzeko in our roster and without even spending any money you had the chance to pick one of the trio Pina/Rasp/Scammaca to be our 4th striker , which one would you pick ? I am sure Pinamonti would always be the 3rd choice behind the other two...

Read yesterday we want a 30 M buyback and Sass want it set for 35 M. We can't even dictate one transfer in our favor.

Haha I can’t see us having 30 million again much less 35m

Scamacca scored 15 outfield goals last season..pinamonti scored 9. If you don't see how that drives a major valuation difference I don't know what to say.

Once you consider minutes as well, Pina scores on average every 324 minutes. Scamacca is 153. More than twice the strike rate.

He would have been sold weeks ago if he accepted Salernitana.

So the latest is there won't be a buyback clause but a release clause for everyone, set at 30m€.
