The great returns of Lukaku and Pogba are the biggest blasts of the market that starts (officially) in five days and for which negotiations are fervent and strategies are being studied. Inter are the fastest at the starting line, Juve have to change a lot, Milan are struggling to take off and have yet to get Paolo Maldini to sign. The other greats all have problems of various kinds while from the rear emerges the desire to excel in the newly promoted Monza of Berlusconi and Galliani.
This is a first picture of the situation.
Champions at a small trot, with Ibra who defies the laws of time. Lost the ungrateful Kessie, Renato Sanches does not square, Asensio costs a lot, while Origi arrives to help Giroud. We are looking for a big name in attack between De Ketelaere, Ziyech and Zaniolo. Florenzi redeemed, possible arrival of Acerbi in defense. Leao shoots high for the renewal.
Galloping market. Inzaghi extended, there was the great low coast shot by Lukaku, Mkhytarian took over from Perisic. The Dybala question remains at stake, but the farewell of the expensive Sanchez and Vidal and perhaps of Dzeko is needed. Cash will be brought by Skriniar, replaced by Bremer or Milinkovic. Deputy Brozovic will be Asllani, Bellanova will be reinforcing on the wing.
Work in progress after the farewell of Chiellini, Dybala, Bernardeschi and Morata. The highlight is the return of Pogba who will team up with Locatelli, the third median could be Paredes or Milinkovic-Savic, if he manages to get rid of the engagements of Arthur, Rabiot and Ramsey. One of Di Maria, Berardi and Zaniolo could arrive next to Chiesa and Vlahovic. Then there is the Di Ligt grain, for which Chelsa offers Werner. If he leaves, he hunts Koulibaly.
Lost Insigne, Olivera and Kvaratskhelia arrived on time, the purchase of Deulofeu (in the sub-order Bernardeschi) is complicated. Politano and Demme leave, Ostigard arriving in defense. Osimhen should stay while the agreement is needed to confirm Koulibaly. Mertens wants to reduce his salary to stay. The other problem concerns the extension of Fabian Ruiz, in the event of a breakdown of headlights on Barak.
Slow trend for costs. In midfield Marcos Antonio for Leiva, doubts remain about the future of Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto. Many arrivals pending: Romagnoli (if Acerbi leaves), Carnesecchi or Vicario (for Strakosha), hypothesis Emerson, Ilic and Simeone. Casale could replace Luiz Felipe, Sarri begins to get impatient.
Matic the first piece in midfield, the rest dances. Neighbors Celik and Solbakken, evaluation clash with Sassuolo for Frattesi, then an army of redundancies to be placed and the Zaniolo knot: no one wants to shell out 60 million for him. Mourinho licks his mustache for Spinazzola’s recovery.
Renewed the contract of Italian, let go of Torreira and Piatek, Commisso is gearing up for Europe with many changes. Gollini arrives in goal, in defense there will be Dodò, negotiations for Mandragora and Jovic are in the pipeline (Real will pay a good part of the 6 million salary), also hot tracks for Bajrami and Djuric
Gasp tries to restart without Ilicic, this time the club buys before selling. Redeemed Demiral is closing for Ederson and Pinamonti, over 50 million in all, and thinks of Cambiaso. The fate of Zapata and Muriel remains uncertain, one of the two should leave. But the club could also decide to reset and focus on many young people who have returned from flattering experiences.
Four other main candidates for Europe SASSUOLO, TURIN, VERONA and the MONZA.
Clusters of indiscretions for Sassuolo who will sell Frattesi and perhaps Scamacca (he has already taken Alvarez and advances on Cancellieri) but for the other big players it depends on the price. Il Toro greets Belotti, Mandragora and Brekalo and will make the market with Bremer’s money. Usual whirlwind of changes in Verona: Cioffi will restart from Caprari, he will have Henry, Piccoli and perhaps Strootman, Simeone, Barak, Cancellieri, Casale and Ilic will leave. Great maneuvers at Monza for Serie A: Stroppa strengthens the defense with Cragno and Ranocchia, negotiations are progressing for Sensi, Carboni, Borja Mayoral (if Pinamonti ends up at Atalanta). A very interesting team.
There SALERNITANA, sold Ederson, try to contend Joao Pedro against Turin. The BOLOGNA Arnautovic confirms and wants to reinforce the defense with Caldara. Empoli, without Pinamonti, took Destro and redeemed Vicario. There SAMPDORIA di Giampaolo, struggling with the difficult thinning of an oversized staff, aims to hire Gabbia. The SPICE, who can re-market, is selling Maggiore and has hired Wright. L’UDINESE, while waiting to evaluate the disposals of Deulofeu, Molina and Udogje, has signed several players on a free transfer. Finally, the other two newly promoted: the CREMONESE she has secured Radu and Vasquez and thinks of Chiriches. The LECCE Juventus Frabotta has secured a loan.
