I thought overall we did okay. We got the some of the most important players that we needed to target, and we missed out on a couple (RW and CB). But, considering our reduced financial situation, especially with the covid=19 pandemics going on, I thought Maldini and co did a very prudent market. We paid players for their fair value, for the most part. And more importantly, we didn't panic even when we're basically left with 2 central defenders. Some of the names we're linked with, I thought were way overpriced. Fofana not worth the 40m Leicester paid. Bakayoko for 40m was also overpriced (money better spent strengthening RW). Though, we also missed out I think on Kabak on a pretty good deal for like 20-25m, which Maldini lowballed.

I think going forward for the winter mercato and the summer mercato next year will depend a lot on our position at the league. If we qualified for the CL, I'd love to see us splash on big-name RW, CB and perhaps some stop gap Striker to bridge from Zlatan to whoever is next. So our focus should be:

1. Get Donnarumma to extend his contract
2. Get Brahim on permanent basis (Dalot I don't know, haven't seen him much playing)
3. Get a RW
4. Get a CB as long-term partner for Romagnoli (someone like Kabak)
5. Get a LB to deputize for Theo (unless Dalot can play there as well)
6. Get a Striker as long-term replacement for Zlatan (though, I think Leao could be the answer here)
