    The defensive stats need some work. He's got to use that big body to win more duels.

    That's the last I saw. But I can't imagine he stays there next season. Wondered if the Italian insiders here had heard any more on the loan front.

    Tanner showed character when Venezia were sinking (Busio didn't), and that's something teams can use. But Inter wants him for their loan army. He could do better.

    To be fair to Di Francesco, he does not play that way, even if it gets his team relegated (see Frosinone, last year). He isn't a traditional bunker and counter Italian manager, he want to attack with wingers and plays the kids. 3 of their main players last year were all players on loan. Matias Soule looks to either be back and starting at Juve or sold for 40m+, Enzo Barranechea was just sold to Aston Villa, and Cheddira is back to Napoli with the possibility to playing a role for Conte. He has big-ish club experience, he coached Roma to a CL semi-final after knocking out Barca and taking small club Sassuolo from relegation club to european spots.

    Will Venezia be good enough to stay up, probably not but Cagliari somehow avoided relegation last year, along with Udinese. Those are 2 clubs who aren't great and may go down this year.

    Is the joke that he will be sold or loaned to Milan instead of playing for Inter?

    Let's start the Suyuntuy "Go one post without shitting on a USMNT player" challenge. Difficulty level: apparently impossible.

    How is saying he's a fighter "shitting" on him?

    I was praising Tessmann back when you guys only had eyes for Busio.

    Busio is the one I was implying you were shitting on. See? You do it so casually that even you didn't notice it! There's a reason you're the only person on the site who keeps a running tally of our players who get relegated that you harp on constantly.

    I think you may have to, um, remind us who that is in the photo wearing a Leeds jersey.

    Smaller Serie A club that actually wants him there.

    But isn't he going to end up at a smaller Serie A club that wants him, but with an Inter paycheck and seal of approval?

    I'm never really sure about the downside here. Some argue that the smaller club route means they will be more invested in a player as they hope to make $ off a transfer, and I suppose in some fringe/marginal cases that might matter, but if you are good enough that your helping a club win, even on loan, they will play you. There's an awful lot of young "loan army" players from any number of "big" clubs out there doing a fine job of building their career.

    On the other hand, if you take "small Serie A" money, your financial and, potentially, career options shrink, as you don't have the "top club" stamp of authenticity... Obviously there are loan players who have never made good on the initial investment, and we can't play "alternate universe" but my guess is on aggregate, the top-club loanee army sarge makes out better - in $ and footie terms - than if they chose "art" over "commerce."

    If they want you for the Loan Army, you're not getting the salary of a starter or even a rotation guy. He's not going to be getting a big amount. The "seal of approval" means nothing when you see the history of guys in loan armies --Inter just got bought by Oaktree, so they don't have such history yet, but that they don't want him with them right away doesn't bode well.

    How many players who playing in Seria B can instantly start for Inter Milan?

    Verratti when he was with pescara comes to mind. Other than that, nobody.

    Then why buy him? I agree with Suyuntuy that a smaller club that wants him is a better move.

    You mean he will get as much or more from, say, Torino or Venice than he will from Inter?

    "Bode well" for what? There are loads of players, from Tillman to Mount to dozens more who have done fine working up a "loan army" route. And, of course, there are loads of players who work their way up the "old fashioned way" (cue John Houseman voice) - not sure there's a huge difference unless there's really an mid-sized club with money and ambition that plan to build around you - or whose admins you really believe in. Basically, either you can play at the Serie A level or. you can't. If Inter wants to keep him and have him as practice fodder that's different, but if the plan is to loan him - I don't know there is a really, predictable difference. Either choice is a gamble. I bet Inter's gamble pays a bit better.

    You mean if they can get him in 6M Euro and have him ready in 2nd year, is better than let him to goes to some team ,then using 30M Euro to buy him?
