    I see lots of rumors about Philippe Coutinho going to Barcelona, Real Madrid or other big money club out there....

    He's tailor made for 3 man defense.

    On the other side of things, Gabigol is just wasted so far at inter. I don't expect him to start every game but a few sub appearances and the odd start here or there.

    What's the story behind Inter buying Gabigol? Was there an agenda or something changed with Inter management or coach after the purchase?

    Very sad to see this kid just waste away like this.

    Inter hasn't been kind to Brazilians for many years now. Coutinho, Juan Jesus, Alex Telles, Melo (wasting away on the bench), mishandled JC early on, etc.

    He's going to have to get loaned out IMO. Italian journalists and teammates saying he's balling out in practice and yet no games ? He's rubbed managers the wrong way b4 but I still really can't say why, he's young and has personality but still.
    I never seen him half ass it on the pitch and he never loses confidence. I'm low key thinking England would have been better as crazy as it sounds.

    Inter are garbage at handling youth as @Mengão86 points out. There seem to be talk of him going on loan to another Italian team for experience. In hindsight, I don't know how serious was Leicester city bid was but it seem it probably would of been a better choice.

    I saw a report about Gabigol going to a random Italian team. I'm disgusted at how this turned out. From what I read in the early part of the season, Icardi was the only striker they had. I don't see why De Boer and now Pioli are snubbing him. He needs to leave.

    De Boer didn't want him apparently. Inter is a mess of a team; I can't believe I thought that was a good move.

    SMH. I don't care if RA managed to secure himself a spot, that's not the path to take if you want to remain NT relevant.

    I feel RA caught himself a lucky break with the NT while playing in China. He was in the brasileirao when Dunga called him, played well and Dunga repayed him with another callup but he had already transferred to China.

    A bit surprised Oscar of all people has taken this route. I saw him making a resurgence playing in Italy for some reason. As for his NT chances, thats probably over with. Not like he was really on Tite's radar to begin with.

    Very disappointing, I expected a lot better from him but he has been in a downard spiral for quite some time.

    Oscar is going to China?!?!?! What the heck?!?! My Lord, Oscar is only 24-25 yrs old and he's already tanking his career (not financially ofcourse). I realize his stock value dropped in Europe, but he can still get into a decent team in Italy/Spain/or even stay in England (where they pay more usually, since this is about money now it seems) and revive his career.

    Sadly, we've all seen many promising youngsters just blow up their careers for whatever reasons. But it's still sad to see every single time.

    Please God, protect G. Jesus from such trauma. We can't go back to just depend on Neymar. Need to move forward... somehow.

    On a side note, Gabigol got a couple minutes against Sassuolo today.

    Picked up a needless yellow, but he still had the workrate (though it was only 2-3 minutes worth at the end of the match).

    Kid, GET OUT OF THERE ASAP!!!!

    I was waiting until February to do it LOL.

    Been quietly paying attention. He has improved a lot from last year's mess.
