We just spent about 43mil on fullbacks this summer. We have 5 of them in the squad and are very well covered in that department. There is absolutely no reason fo go for Darmian and spend another 15+ mil on this position.

On Aurier, I agree with Geo. As a matter of fact he had to play as an emergency CB once last season (don't remember which game it was but it was a CL game), and he was horrible...costing the team a goal and getting criticized by everyone for days.

I completely disagree with those saying that Aubameyang relies heavily on his speed and will decline in the next couple years because he'll lose it. Watch the player...you'll see that most of the goals he scores are because of some very clever movement and not speed. He's scored some spectacular goals with his speed...and naturally this is what people will remember....but there is so much more to his game.

Also...not sure why Costa would apparently be a better fit to Montella's game. Both Auba and Costa can be incorporated in our squad quite easily and be affective in their own way.

My fear with Costa is his attitude as I said. That same attitude can break up the relarionship wigh Milan in a year, and than he'll demand to go to Atletico again...who won't pay nowhere near what we would this summer. It's an immediate loss. I just think this guy is a huge risk to the group. I prefer not to take risks like these. As someone said...when things are going well everything is rosy. When things take a turn for worse....their character usually adds fuel to the fire.

Another thing, as Arildonaldo mentioned, 56mil may be a fair price for Costa...but Costa that doesn't have problems with his club. In this situation, Chelsea has publicly declared that they want him gone. He is not even training with them. The player himself has publicly declared that he wants to leave. There is no way this problem gets repaired for them. They either sell, or he stays on the stands. The ONLY club other than us that's shown interest is Atletico, BUT they can't buy until January...AND they would not pay 56mil. NO WAY. No other club that can afford Costa needs a CF nor are they looking for a CF. Milan at this moment IS THE ONLY option. So we should not pay 56mil. I would say 40mil MAX. Take it or leave it. We are taking a problem off of your hands. We should say to Chelsea, "If you don't sell him for 40mil now, he will be in the stands, getting paid by YOU....and when next summer comes around his value will drop to about 35-40mil anyway. " It's really in their best interest to accept that figure of 40mil. It's plenty for a player in this situation.

About Costa, I'd add that his attitude on the pitch (and not only outside) is also a problem for a club for Milan, it's more suitable with Inter IMO ! Big Grin
Of course, the guy can score 20-25+ goals each season, and we would learn to support him, but it will be harder than for some other players, unless there is a complete change of attitude, like we saw with Van Bommel and De Jong for example (they became "soft" on the pitch without becoming ineffective, I even think they were at their best once in Milan and once they only put their focus on playing well and not also on hurting and fedding up their opponents).

I agree about Auba, while I'm not his biggest fan, the guy doesn't rely on his speed, let's say his speed is mainly used in counter attacks, but he doesn't really use it when Dortmund has the control of the game (which means in 85-90% of their games), and despite that, he scored a lot of goals.

Diego Costa, Aubameyang, Belotti, actually, right now, even if my top choice is Belotti, either of them would be a great addition. Furthermore, they're all able to play with a second striker if we want to play a 2 striker formation ...

Two things in common : Ibra only compares himself to Ibra. Big Grin
I feel we can get Costa for 40-45 million.
We are closer to Renato Sanchez than any forwards, howerver his performance in Bayern 0:3 lost against Liverpool makes many fans of the German club angry.

Does that mean he had his head somewhere else (Milan or ... Liverpool) ?
The same is reported about Kalinic who played from the 1st minute for Fiorentina in a friendly game yesterday and looked totally uninterested.

Anyway, these kinds of behaviour, if true (about Kalinic, because it's just a question for Sanches), should be a warning for us. That means the guys who do that are not professional and don't respect the firm sending him his 100+K euros each month !
Don't know where to post that ...
Montella just confirmed Montolivo won't be our captain this year (so no more protection for him).

He said in the past, the club used to select the captain, but the new management asked him to make a choice into the new players who just arrived to start a new cycle.
