We are all discussing on non-facts. Lautaro requesting 10m+ is exactly the reason why the signing is delayed. No Inter management is agreeing on that yet.

So either "he deserves 10m" based on Lukaku hypothetical salary or "we cannot afford" based on Inter future loan interests rumours are your and his personal opinions.
No, my personal opinion is he deserves it because he's the best player in Serie A right now and he's improving every year. I threw Lukaku's hypothetical salary to show that the management was ready to splash 10m on a 4 year contract on Lukaku about half a year ago.

DO: Drop the expensive fourth striker, bring in a young hungry cheap striker, pay Lautaro whatever he wants, go into the next season with Lautaro, Thuram, Taremi + young striker

DON'T: Get a 30+ fourth striker on high wages or keep Correa/Alexis/Assnautovic, let Lautaro go because he "asks too much" and gamble on a Zirkzee or a David or Idk who to fill his shoes (in Europe no one can), go into the next season with striker gamble, Thuram, Taremi + one of the three useless *ssholes.

How so? He claimed that we can't afford it as if we know exactly what our budget is like. Saying it's not worth it is one thing as its subjective and open for discussion, exactly what a forum is for, but saying that we can't afford it without actual facts is another.
The facts are that we are selling almost every season some key player, because we have to do it. The management also mentioned that we shall reduce the salaries.
I haven't seen that our finances are significantly improved lately, so it's quite normal one to assume that giving 10 mln to Lautaro will have an impact on our budget, and will lead to some other sacrifices.
The other issue with giving him 10 mln is that the rest of the starters will start asking for the same (or close) salaries as well.

That is not true. The last rumors about Lukaku were, that he will reduce his salary between 6.5-7.5mln, which with GHD applied would have been less than 12 mln gross per season. Lautaro's will be 20mln gross.

for me it depends on the structure

if its structured around competition performance and participation e.g just as an example, 6m base, +1m for CL group stages, +1m for serie a top 2, +1m for CL QF, +1m for CL SF, +1m for scudetto, whatever, then its fine, because his salary is directly linked to our revenue

I wish all of our key starters would be structured this way too, its not really that revolutionary - many clubs have salary cuts mandated in contract for when they get relegated, for example

Okay I stand corrected, but it was actually 8.5m but convenient of you leaving the fact that growth decree would only last for a year out of his 4 years contract. 3m extra for a much better and younger player, let alone your captain is nothing.

Nonsense, the management wanted to renew his contract, thus the conversation. If Lautaro had said let's wait until the end of the season until we negotiate, you people would probably cry about how he's not captain material either hanging the management dry. Fucking Vlahovic gets paid 9m+bonus ffs, I wouldn't mind Lautaro giving that ~10m as he's shown over the years that he's always improving.

Stop being naive, just because he's our captain and legend doesn't mean he should bend over.
Yeaa, why Vlahovic, he should ask like Ronaldo or Messi's wage, cz he's the best player right now. He just wasted a golden chance 10 minutes ago, give him 20ml.

This match smells like a loss or a draw at best.

I mean it is funny how he only scored two goals in CL so far this season. For a free flowing, free scoring side like Inter, Lautaro really doesn't have good enough numbers in Europe

even outside of this season. His Inter record is 15 in 50, where 8 of those appearances and 3 goals were in the europa league, so in the CL he's 12 in 42.

His only acceptable CL campaign came before covid. Most he's scored since then in one season was three in THIRTEEN last year.

he played in 3 failed seasons, which was like 50 minutes total in his first, and one heavily rotated one where he still managed to be the top scorer of the team with just 3 starts....

He had good looks but mostly from headers except that one 1v1ish chance where he really should have scored and he usually does score those where someone is on him and he has little window to do anything but oh well he missed and thankfully the cunt took care of the rebound.

Arna saved his ass there for not passing it to Dumfries.

Lautaro had an okay game. I thought he did great in the chance where Arna scored.
