Bisseck will bench Darmian or Pavard with current form. Forget the transfer spend for a minute. He was allover Lecce , and they were defending deep. He was dominating air, the midfield, corners , winning headers, passing %.

Having Buchanan too is luxury, let this guy settle in calmly.

We are loaded in defense, double shifts ready to go on any notice. Milanisti will hate us ! Envy us!!

They would beg on anyone on our bench atm

This pic is the current mood tbh.

Regarding this move I can see the logic in it. We have scouted him for over a year and to be honest we rarely get it wrong with these type of transfers. He has the skills you can’t teach that we are lacking in this squad. None of our wingbacks can dribble since we lost Perisic and if we’re being honest even he was a bit of a one trick pony at times. Albeit also a much more polished player in all the other aspects of the game.

The parts of his game that are lacking can be taught. The question will be is he coachable and how long does it take him to learn. Bisseck learned quickly but we shouldn’t underestimate the fact he’s played in Europe his whole career and German football development is solid tactically. Buchanan literally played college soccer in the states, something top prospects don’t do. I never thought I’d see someone with that background at Inter.

Similar to Dumfries he isn’t a guy that was predestined to make it to the top. He worked hard and improved over time and his physical attributes helped him stand out. Hopefully he can take that next step here at Inter. There isn’t a better environment for him to fulfill his potential.

I have feeling that Buchanan will be flipped for profit in next 1 or 2 years, he’s kind of PL player.

Yep. He just needs to hit it enough to draw attention. At the latest in World Cup 2026 in North America to maximize the attention.

Very happy we aren't fighting over few millions for several weeks as it looks this gonna be done next week.

Di Marzio - Brugge values Buchanan's price tag at 10 million euros, while the Nerazzurri have presented an initial offer of 6 million euros. Distance between the parties, but negotiations continue anyway.

This is a classic 'Marotta negotiates for couple of weeks, only to pay the initial asking price at the end' case.

It's between us and City for this guy. Hope we get him.

Does City even approached him? This rumor seems to me like that one years ago, when suddenly Man U were linked to Taider when we wanted to wrap the deal up.

MEh most of us ignore the fact that payment shedules and size of the payments also has to be negotiated.. all we read is the final sum....
Just as a reminder 10 mio now does not equal 10 mio in a year.....

But sure lets believe that with every transfer marotta sits down to negotiate for weeks and then simply agrees to what ever was asked in the first place .....

Not like marotta has proven to be one of the best in the business...

I’ve watched a lot of Tajon with the national team and what has been said about him, positives and negatives, is mostly true.

You’ll admire his quickness and dribbling but occasionally shake your head at his crossing and defending. He has a lot to learn but he might turn out good for us under the right circumstances.

I for one never thought I’d see a Canadian footballer at Inter in my wildest dreams. I would’ve preferred Davies but that was never realistic.
