Good piece of business by Roma getting rid of a talented albeit injury prone hot head. As for being "picked up" by Milan grande, Tonali and Zaniolo together:lol:, more drama on the way.

I would argue this Nainggolan goal vs Rube alone was worth the Zani-yolo swap - even when he was at his peak. But now it's not even up for discussion. Great swap deal for us(y)

I don't know if it is ego or injuries (or both), but he still has time to revive his career. He is still 23. Some players fail to live up to the early expectations. Some players are a bad fit to their club/manager's tactics and some players don't take their job very seriously. He might regain his form and his price go up like crazy again, or he becomes another Balotelli.

There are several players whose careers went up or downhill in a few years based on their career decisions or how they worked themselves up and down. To name a few: Edwin Van Der Sar, Thiago Silva, Thierry Henry, Claudio Lopez, Coutinho, Griezmann, Kevin De Bruyne, Bruno Fernandes...

Zaniolo is going through a rough patch, but he still has time to save his career. Anyway, it doesn't make the Naingolann-Zaniolo swap any less terrible.

25m! And people still think exchanging him for Naingolann was not a terrible move. We waste resources left and right and then cry about being broke.
I don't watch Turkish league obviously but loan+option usually means he proves shit at the club. And the higher that option the less likely it is.

Lesson from Juve loads of loanees is never count your chicken before hatched.

That does not mean anything. Someone who watch the team and Zaniolo should make a comment on his performance.

The thing is, the guy would still have a value and can even raise his value over the years. Unlike the oldies we trade these young guys for.

Nainggolan deal was a mistake for sure. But Zaniolo is not that big of a regret for me. He is worth less than 15m (which Roma sold him for).

Not as big as Coutinho, Kovacic or Hakimi fuckups.

I'm curious but have you seen him play since his move?

There's no guarantee his value would raise..Esposito is an example - attitude has probably ruined his value from like 10-15m to probably 2-3m. There's no guarantee of recovery

but any percentage of higher value from the youngster player is 50% still larger >>> any percentage of higher value from the oldies (31-40 yo) is only 1%. only Lewandoski the player whom gained higher value at his age (33+) and maybe only he alone. the rest maybe is looking for fat paycheck in Inter, US league, Turki league, China league, Japan league, and Arab league.

Yeah, except unless Zaniolo does something like a Dele Alli and no fucker wants to touch the guy and we have to spend loads terminating his contract?

You could have easily made the same argument about JM, Dalbert, Lazaro, etc, look how they've gone.

Since joining Gala? No I didn't.

Nobody can guarantee such a thing. It's just common sense that younger talented players have time and capacity to get better and increase their value. We can only talk about possibilities, not guanrantees. Even someone like Esposito can put his shit together and revive his career. That chance becomes lesser and lesser when you go over 30s and beyond.

I'm not against the broad idea, but when Zaniolo had such a falling out with Mourinho and Roma that his valuation went from like 70mil to 25mil, its a little bit of a red flag.
