if berrardi available for 30m we should go and get him, i dont think we will regret getting him for that amount of money. especially if we are going to play with wingers. maybe we can do 25m + niang + another youngster.

I think with Auba the management were mostly likely hoping to get the price down by waiting. Early in the transfer window, he was linked to a few places, notably China, which meant that his cost was driven up thanks to competition. I think the idea was to see if that competition would die down over time (which it has) to help bring down the demands of Dortmund. That said, I think with all potential targets for the striker role (for which I think the management have kept options open the whole time), the negotiations have been really tough as no clubs seem set to be prepared to negotiate.

I think part of the reason for waiting was also to give the club an opportunity to see what opportunities might turn up and also give the management a chance to try and sell some players (again, a challenge thus far).

Finally, I think the Neymar deal has changed the market, as the absurd money spent only continues to inflate prices, which directly conflicts with us trying to bring them down.

Either way, let's be patient, I'm confident we'll be satisfied at the end.

Spot on.. I mean, at the end of the day Aubameyang needs to come at the right price too. We all want him back, there's no doubt management does as well. Borussia has always been a selling club, I really don't see them holding on. I know he'll probably still manage 25 goals+ per season for the next few years which is great, but with every year his value will only go down as he approaches 30. A team like Borussia should really consider their options here. They're still playing top football, but they have a lot of visible gaps. I'd take up the opportunity to cash in on Dembele + Auba - keep Reus for one more year, and rebuild the team in every department.

I'm also confident that management will not disappoint, they haven't put a foot wrong in anything they have done, so let's keep faith. I highly doubt Kalinic will be our marquee striker signing. If there was that remote possibility, I think a) it would've been done by now due to the fact that he's not insanely expensive and b) management wouldn't be saying that they are looking for a 'big name', they know Kalinic is not a big name.

If we do sign Kalinic, I still wouldn't panic because I would think it would follow another big signing either on the wings or midfield.

Also, multiple outlets are saying apart from our big signing in attack we will evaluate our options for one more midfielder. Apparently Mirabelli wants a young talented midfielder, but one who is capable of playing. Biglia is world class, but we're already seeing he can be injury prone. I wouldn't mind Locatelli stepping in, but again another midfielder would not hurt. I would try to take Krychowiak (I know I spelled this terribly wrong Big Grin). He's not 'young' like we're looking for, but he's a simple player who does all the simple things pretty well. Top quality mid to have to fill the roles. If he can come on the cheap I'd take him. 

Another option for all around back-up is taking Thiago Motta on a 1 year deal. He'd probably be free anyways.
Apart from some habitual dirty challenges, he's always been a player I really appreciate. Although I believe he recently signed a deal with PSG, I'm not 100% sure, but if so it rules him out. Just an example of a last minute opportunity for us if we're looking on the low cost side to sure up our mid.
Barcelona are making thing difficult for us, and for themselves as always.

Dembele did not appear on training, Coutinho mailed a transfer request, but in the end, the Neymar's money only spent on Paulinho Big Grin

40M for Paulinho? They could buy a lot of better players with such amount.

And Aubameyang left the training ground after 30 minutes ... poor Dortmund ! While I can understand that Auba wants to leave after several years, I have doubts about Dembele who isn't a WC plauer yet and arrived last year only in Dortmund (lack of respect).

Simeone is official in Fiorentina. So it's almost official that Kalinic will come here as a consequence.

Liverpool deleted all the adverts with Coutinho on its website (didn't check if true).

What an agitated mercato !
Yeah, it's been a good weekend:
- Barca losing at home to Madrid by 1-3 despite Ronaldo getting sent off. Deloufeu was pretty horrible for them. Dodged a bullet.
- Lazio taking out Juve in spectacular fashion, with De Sci being a "protagonist" by losing out to Lukaku for the last goal. Justified sale (would love to grab Lukaku though, the kid is a beast)
- News picking up on the transfer front as Auba and Belotti bids go out.

Not too confident in Gallo though, since Cairo is a complete idiot who refuses to let him leave, and since the man won't force his own way out...

At least Auba may yet come. The feeling I'm getting now with BVB suspending Dembele is that they're not gonna sell him till later just to screw with Barca.
Quote:Fassone and Mirabelli are awaiting some extra funds that should arrive this week to aid the purchase of a top striker. [@Corriere]

Kalinic has refused Everton's offer as he hangs on to his dream of playing for Milan. [@Corriere]
At the moment i am quite resigned to the fact that we will buy Kalinic,but I always hope in a theater shot.

I don't understand how Torino/Cairo are complete idiots for not letting Belotti leave. Torino decided the player is worth more to them than the money on offer would be, fair and square. That's how the market works for players under contract.

After all Belotti and Torino signed the contract until 2021 as late as last december. If Belotti thought he would be leaving, that was a stupid thing of him to do.
If Kalinic comes, I don't think we will stop to buy top striker. If Auba is beyond our financial ability, Mirabelli would have told us but he has not, which should mean, we are still chasing him but I am still not sure what kind of plan FM have right now to get him.

Regarding his price, his price won't rise from around 80 mil euros next season since he will be 29 yo next year which means one season after that his price will drop significantly (maximum half of 80 mil or even worse).

I smell 'something' with Aubameyang transfer prospect. We don't declare we stop to chase him, only Dortmund say something but not concrete and Auba has been mentioning us again and again. In addition, we would give very bad ending with our mercato (to fans, owner, world of football etc), something should be going great at the end if FM could get big name striker.

Cairo is like Lotito (Lazio President) Biglia next year finish contract and ask 20M or nothing check situation Keita ask 30M Juve and Inter offer 20 and Lotito say 30 or take it up next year on contract expiration .
I know Cairo's characteristics quite well.And disagree with you.Youre just pressuming.You dont know.

What Im saying is Belotti hasnt any desire to leave.If hes happy to stay everything goes as it has.Cairo claims hes worth €100m yet pays him like hes worth €15m.Belotti can ask to be sold if Cairo says only for €100m Belotti can ask to be paid accordingly.He hasnt asked nor shown any desire to leave.Him asking to leave cant make anything because he has a set price remember.
Youre forgetting the fact that Cairo wants €100m.The price isnt going to lower not matter how many shit Galliani signings they try to include.

If Belotti wants Milan he should make himself clear to Cairo.He hasnt said a thing about wanting leave as Cairo proudly keeps saying.Maybe hes happy being a big fish in a small pond.
