Mattia Gabbia's meant to be pretty decent, but I think coming from the youth set up the most promising is Moris Sportelli. However, at 17, he's simply not going to be ready for top level football yet. Another is Ivan De Santis (19), who's playing regularly on loan this year (2017, not 2016/17). However, to ask a youth player to come in and partner Romagnoli is asking for trouble, it's a position we need a little experience in to help give confidence to the young talents.

On Locatelli, I want us to keep him. I think he's shown plenty of growth this year to warrant confidence, and honestly feel that in 2017, Montella's management of him has been detrimental, as quite why he's not seeing consistent game time is beyond me when looking at who is playing. If we can get someone like Luiz Gustavo (rumours are growing), then I think it would be great to keep Locatelli and let him grow as the alternative in front of defence, I actually think him growing internally is going to benefit him more than getting loaned out.

La Reppublica suggests our lineup for next year might look something like this:

----------------------Donnarumma-------------------------

Darmian(Abate)-Musacchio--Romagnoli-------Rodriguez

--------------Kessie--L.Gustavo--Bonaventura-----------

--Suso-----------------Morata---------------------Keita--

I think on the whole that's a pretty good side. I know Darmian's not the flavour of the month, but I still think he's very good, just that he made the wrong choice by moving to United (I never understood it, he's not a Premier League player). I'd rather someone who can alternate with Kessie, but if we're spending the rumoured amounts, it's unlikely it would be for him to be on the bench. I also think Gustavo would be a valuable signing, one that can help Locatelli's growth (as long as the latter gets regular playing time). This lineup also allows for Keita to pull in with Bonaventura and/or Rodriguez on the overlap. I think that's important, as Keita needs to get near goal to be at his best. It would also allow Suso to pull centrally to make for 4-3-1-2.

Regarding Locatelli, he could also switch with Kessie in this system to allow for a double pivot and give freedom to Bonaventura to push forward.
If Roma can, can't we? I wonder what the price would be.

Injuries are obviously a big concern with him, but he would be an incredible signing. As a matter of fact, I think he's such a good player that I would go for him anyway, injuries or not. It wouod also be sweet to take another one of Roma's targets. Big Grin


On another note, we (and Inter) are linked to Pepe. Not quite sure what to think of it.

Pepe is topclass if we can get him to partner up with Romagnoli it'd be great. Not sure if Boateng us very realistic though.

Edit: Wow didn't know he was 34 years old but still not bad as a free agent.
Pepe is equally likely to have a magnificent defensive game one week then try to break someone's leg the next. I would pass on him.
Kessie is reported to have chosen us ahead of Roma: http://www.football-italia.net/102510/re...icks-milan
No 1 is ready if we didn't see them playing at least 3 times. I don't think you guys just approved loca to play if monto didn't play and he didn't have a great game against juve. Last year we also see him play for a while and we judge him to be not ready. We need to give them chance so we can see how they gonna play. Atleast 1 or 2 more youngsters need to play this last 2 games even as a sub for 10mnt is enough.

I wouldn't complain too much if we got Pepe. Honestly I feel that even at 34, he'll offer more guarantees than Musacchio. For the record, I'm not a fan, in fact I've never really liked him. However, there's simply no deying he's a been a top class defender for over a decade now. He's been excellent for Real over the years and was the cornerstone of the Portugal side that won Euro 2016. Even if he's a rough player and his antics are unpopular, he's no where near the card magnet that Sergio Ramos is and his record is actually better than Paletta's in terms of discipline. I'm not saying he's my first choice, but just that he's not a terrible option and could help the club similar to how Barzagli has worked out at Juve.

It's frustrating to read about Roma going after Boateng, especially because it's the same thing I said just the other day, there are opportunities as some of the top clubs are overstacked in CB. I specifically mentioned Bayern in the same post and in the past have actually mentioned Boateng by name lol. For me, he'd be a great signing, I don't think he's a brilliant defender, but overall he's got a great game that could really benefit us.

I think these guys would really help Romagnoli grow too, as he's proven so far that he's most comfortable alongside an experienced player (i.e. Alex last season and Paletta this).
So do we conclude Kessie's transfer after the game? Smile
Pepe would be a great & experienced signing. If we have real ambitions of challenging for scudetto he would bring the leadership and experience in the back that we could definitely use.
Kessie was a brick wall today, very difficult player to pass I noticed. I wouldn't mind having Papu Gomez TBH. I expect Honda,Deulofeu,Niang & Ocampos to be permanently leaving the club this summer so we could definitely use depth. If all 4 of those players leave + Bacca & Lapadula.. We would essentially need an entirely new attack lol. I literally don't expect any of those players to stay.

Midfield I see Poli, possibly Kucka, Mati Fernandez leaving and Pasalic returning to Chelsea. We need at least 3 midfield signings. Kessie, Luiz Gustavo + one other player. Wouldn't mind an experienced player like Thiago Motta, just someone good.

Defense, if De Sciglio leaves & I'm not too certain Gomez or Zapata will stay, then we should bring in Rodriguez, Musacchio & either Pepe or someone young with potential.

GK we have Donnarumma so we're good lol
