Lukaku. Made no sense for that cost, after his appalling season. It's as if the management was living in a different galaxy while he was here as well.
Asllani. Decent talent but what's the point?
Mkhitaryan. Okay deal but we will need to get rid of him after 1 season - which I trust will be solid enough - and instead we'll keep him on.
Onana. Will be judged when he plays but if you keep Handanovic and you have budgetary constraints, this makes no sense. It's not like we can plan ahead and say he's our next starter, we'll probably sell him before he completes 50 games if he turns out good.
Acerbi. Honestly not a terrible deal but arrived too late.
Bellanova. Another deal that makes little sense. He wanted to become a starter somewhere and he came here to be 3rd in the pecking order behind Dumfries and Darmian.
Sanchez. Poor judgment to send him packing, especially since Dybala did not arrive.
Vidal. Too late to get rid of him and cost too much.
Casadei. Would have been nice to keep him but the offer was too good to refuse.
Pinamonti. Decent deal.
Ranocchia. Could have stayed but he wanted to go somewhere to be a starter, cannot blame him for not waiting our inutile management to decide.
Vecino. It was expected.
Sensi. Disappointed by the turn of events, I'd honestly still keep him around since we could barely loan him out.
Vanheusden. Had hopes that the kid could break into the rotation but evidently he's not good enough and cannot be relied upon.
Radu. It'd be toxic if he remained after that Bologna blunder. Hopefully he puts that behind him.
Esposito. Needs the development and the loan destinations so far have been spot on.
Satriano. I honestly would have kept him as the 5th forward. He will surprise us.
Lazaro. Needs to get off the books asap.
Agoume. Another player that I'd keep around.
Pirola. Good loan experience. Needs to return and be part of the rotation if Salernitana drops and he's proving to be reliable.
Dybala. Shame, he was waiting for us for months.
Bremer. Double the shame. Both him and Dybala could have arrived if Lukaku hadn't, assuming we'd sell Pinamonti a bit earlier. We gifted Juventus this player.
Left wing back. We do have Gosens, but we needed one more guy. Not necessarily a starter. Can't tell if this player would have been Udogie or Biraghi, it just needed to be someone.
Scamacca. Won't lose any sleep here, especially for that price. Wouldn't pay more than 30m for him.
Frattesi. Decent player that could have helped in the rotation, but he's not worth more than 20m.
Bastoni. Horrendous decision to attempt to shop him. He obviously seems affected by it.
Skriniar. Even worse. We've been trying to do this to him for years. Barely has 9 months of contract yet and I don't think he's been called yet to renew despite the promise that it'd happen after the rejected PSG bids.
Dimarco. We rejected a couple of bids for him, probably a good decision, but since we need money we should have been more willing to sacrifice him than others, especially if it could finance the Bremer deal early on.
De Vrij. For some reason we didn't push hard to get him sold.
Dumfries. Had some interest but we never shown intent to sell him.
Dzeko. We decided to keep him. He had also decided to stay. Would have been extremely hard to get release him to another club under these circumstances. And honestly I don't mind it as long as he's 3rd striker at best.
It's one thing to have your hands tied by the management, it's another to still raise them and poke your own eyes out...
