Inzaghi’s Inter focuses on Caicedo, Juve still thinks of Dzeko, Milan want Giroud on a free transfer
Concluded (or almost) the waltz of the benches, for the teams of A league now begins that of forwards and among the large companies the common goal is the same: to contain costs. It’s a bit as if the sign was posted outside the transfer market door ‘AAA opportunity sought‘and the leaders of the big names are hunting for “creative” shots, as defined by Maldini a few weeks ago.
TheInter of Simone Inzaghi, which for weeks now has announced an economic downsizing: while the Nerazzurri are considering whether to sell Lautaro Martinez, for the attack they are thinking of Felipe Caicedo, who has his contract expiring in June 2022 and did very well with the Lazio coach. Caicedo is an amulet by Simone Inzaghi and for characteristics (left-handed, strong in progression and willing to sacrifice as a team) he really seems the perfect deputy Lukaku. The cost of the Ecuadorian, 32, should be low and the salary, 2 million net per season, is absolutely within the reach of the Nerazzurri.
Instead, there are 4 million that the Milan would be willing to recognize for two years a Olivier Giroud, who, however, to move to Milan must first obtain the free release from Roman Abramovic. The French striker has in fact recently renewed with Chelsea, but there would be an unwritten promise that would ensure the player the possibility of making an agreement with a non-Premier League team without having to pay compensation to the English. This team would like to be Milan, which however would be willing to close for the 34-year-old only on a free transfer and therefore the marriage is postponed for now.
How has the marriage between the Juventus e Dzeko. Last August Paratici had reached an agreement in principle with Roma and the player, but then everything jumped after Arek Milik’s medical examinations, which convinced the Friedkins not to change center-forward. A year later 35-year-old Dzeko lost value on the market and is now only 12 months away from his contract expiring: which is why he could walk away from Roma almost free (as the prosecutor Alessandro Lucci would have asked to find another top team). They would not like to give the Bosnian striker to Trigoria, especially to Juve, but the goal is to cut costs and the opportunity to get rid of a gross salary of 14 million (even higher than Mourinho’s) could be unrepeatable.
It is the market for bargains and creative shots, the big ones are on the move.
