Yeah and the buyback clause rises to 16m€ in 2020 summer. So maybe just get him back now, loan him back to Genoa or somewhere else. There's been talk of Roma, with Olsen falling in this season. Not a great environment though at this point, but we never know what is going to happen in Roma (Pallotta selling to Arabs has been rumored).

Honestly i would not mind paying extra 4 mio to keep him at genoa as a starting keeper for one more year. And i dont think genoa would accept us buying him back and then just loaning radu to them as i m sure they rather have the 4 mio on top of keeping radu.
With him developing very nicely at genoa i d be more than happy to pay those 4 mio and keep him at genoa rather than take a gamble to find a new team for him where he ll start or even worse have him on the bench behind handa for a year.
On top of that shipping players from club to club usually also does not really help their development.

Well they would get their current keeper for free still. If we are anyway going to get him back, after that point why wouldn't they just take him on loan? Other option for them is to get a new goalkeeper. Having the previous one again is simpler for them too. And they are still getting that 12m€, immediately.

Italy clubs don't treat youngsters that nicely though. Genoa is a selling club. They 'd rather scout a raw gem elsewhere, give him minutes and earn profit later. Why doing that for free, if their ambition is just avoiding relegation (and they will, with or without Radu)?

Well seeing his performance they could probably get more for him if they sold him on the open market. So while you are right they could keep their current keeper but the incentive to play and develop him would be way smaller.
Also i m more pointing to that genoa might say fuck you to us out of spite. while they d get a good keeper on loan they d only get him for a year and the only thing that would be different from telling us to fuck off is that they postpone their search for a keeper for one season.
Imho if we want him to stay there for one more season we ll have to stick to the original deal otherwise genoa is probably gonna pull out.

Dai, ragazzo!

Seems to me like he has one of these monster reaction-saves almost every match. The raw talent is certainly there.

Honestly... Handanovic is great, but he is getting old and he's an uninspiring captain.

Next year should be his last. By then Radu will be ready. Also by then, Skri should be ready for captaincy.

Hope we don't pull a Zaniolo on him.

I am more worried about pulling a Sebastian Frey on him.

By that you mean start him for a season? Lose a derby 6-0 and then get one of the best goalkeepers in the country?

Hopefully we don't indeed pull a Zaniolo with Radu but insert another buyback clause if we are going to make money in this summer by selling him outright. Maybe loaning is more reasonable, unless we insert him as an expensive makeweight to Barella deal for example. Barella sale price 50m€, Radu sale price 20m€ and buyback at 25m€ for 1 year and 30m€ for 2 years or something like that.

I mean making him a starter before he's ready. Radu looks promising but he needs to work on his weaknesses. We need to be patient with him. 1-2 more seasons on loan will be beneficial for him. Sadly there's no Francesco Toldo (my favorite Inter gk btw) available to get this time.

Yeah just fucking around, Frey was fantastic for Fiore.

FIGC recently decided to ban buyback clauses.

IIRC they only banned 50% ownerships as it was a clusterfuck with them. Buy back clauses aren't banned as far as i know.

as for Radu, i'm all in having him bought and sold again, with higher buyout clause. He is simply not ready for us, still makes retarded moves and poor decisions, even tho the talent is there. Needs couple more years at a club like Genoa. Or as someone said above, we can do a Frey.

Hm, read it somewhere (over FedeNerazzurra or SempreInter) recently in relation to our summer transfer dealings, that we won't be able to insert those clauses anymore. It was stated that they did indeed change the rule for good already but you're right, couldn't find any confirmation. Anyway, the FIGC president seems dead set to remove it.

FIGC President Gabriele Gravina has confirmed that Italy could abolish buyback clauses in transfers.

Buyback options were only permitted in Italian football last summer, when it was still being run by a commissionership, but Gravina made it clear they were not in place to stay.

“It’s a measure that was suitable during the commissioner period,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“We’re weighing things up and I hope to propose the amendment of the rule by March 20 so that the Federal Council can cancel this change.”

Why not just leave him at genoa if we already have a buy back option for next year?

On the buy back clause in general was it not uefa that wanted to get rid of them?

I don't know the numbers, but maybe a buy now with a new sale (with buy back of course) can give us some profit for FFP

Why remove buy back clauses? They're like release clauses.
