FFS it was 9/10 mercato, but wtf is this signing? If they would leave as it is it would be good. I dont understand this at all... he is bad, really bad.

We knew from the beginning that Frattesi was the twin of Barella in our midfield. Even Frattesi knew that and admit that.

Now it's hard to take out one of Chala, Bare and Mhiki, because they're playing too good.

Frattesi must shut the fuck up, work hard and wait for his time that will eventually come, sooner or later, because Mhiki is old and often injured.

OK so I had a crazy busy day at work and didn't keep up with any of the rumors until just now - fuck I didn't realize this deal was actually done :lol: I thought it was at "serious consideration" stage but apparently we're at "here we go" already ffs.

Surely it's the other way around? Klaassen might be mediocre but still plays nearly every match for club and country while Van De Beek is a fucking pussy who has played about an hour of football in the last 4 years?
With all due respect to Ajax, but it's much easier to play a lot for Ajax than it is for Manchester. Also, it has been a shit transfer from start for Van De Beek. Klaassen went abroad and really didn't flourish at all.

The ceiling of Van De Beek is much higher than Klaassen, but dunno honestly. If I were to choose, I'd always go for Donny. If there's a small chance he gets to his former level - we have a big gem in our midfield. Klaassen is already finished. Might as well get Daley Blind for shits n giggles.

Don't even see the mentor role in Klaassen either

Inzaghi saw he's not even 30 yet so it was rejected fast

View attachment 9902

Inzaghi would have a fit just at the thought of having one 21-year old and 2 23-year olds as the only midfield options on the bench

Look at our forwards - 34 and 35 year old options coming off the bench to change the game with an injection of pace.

Lol what are you guys complaining for.
Who did you expect as 6th/7th option in midfield for 0 euro lol

The guy has a respectable career , scored shit loads of goals for a midfielder and for sure its much better than Gagliardini as an option in emergency and is just 30 ffs not 40.

I think Klaasen fits the bill as both a box to box midfielder and a "forward" option in case we go for a 3-5-1-1 situation.

I don't like the 2 year part. Should be 1+1
