Transfer Talk

June 26, 2014 - 2:07 pm

To help manage the site more effectively, and to give users a place to talk about transfers continuously, I’ve set up this thread and a ‘Forum’ link. You can use this place to keep an ongoing discussion going on the summers transfers and as a forum of sorts. I’ll also create one for matches once the season starts.  I would ask that you use this but also continue to post on the daily stories that we take time to write and publish. Once this thread falls off the homepage, you’ll always be able to return to it via the forum link.

    Nice job, Rav. This is a good solution. All people have to do now to find an active thread is click on forum. Also we’re gonna do a prediction league again?

    so according to di marzio, we have signed 21 year old genoa mdfielder stefano sturaro for 5.5mil+bonuses which should add up to a total of 8mil. he will be loaned to genoa this season. genoa will have recieve 15% of what we get if we choose to sell sturaro at any point.

      Sturaro played 16 games this season, grabbing 1 goal and 2 assists. he averaged 1.6 tackles, 0.8 interceptions, and 1.1 clearences. he had averaged a 75.4% pass completion rate, with 1.2 key passes.

    we are apparently really close to reaching a deal for 22yr old sampdoria cb shkodran mustafi. rumored figure is around 6mil. apparently he’s been really good this season (got called up to the german nt for the world cup) but i’m not sure what we need another cb for unless we choose to sell ogbonna. in that case it’d be great business. get a younger, better cb for less than what we receive for ogbonna

      Somehow it worries me to see Juve spend 5m here and there on players I’ve never heard of, they should focus on 1 or 2 big names imo. Really crossing fingers for Alexis Sanchez here

        Moderator June 27, 2014 at 3:16 pm

        We’ll be priced out of sanchez. We can spend 25m on a player or buy Iturbe and others for less.

        The player wants Conte and Juve. I’m sure of it. A return to Italy. His friends in the team. But if Liverpool and United show interest, I can’t see marotta enter a bidding war for him.

        Apparently we don’t have much money to spend this summer.

        Retaining pogba and Vidal would be a huge boost alone.

    so we are offering 25mil for iturbe but we wouldn’t offer that for sanchez…wtf are we doing? marotta is finally coughing up money and he’s doing it on a player who isn’t worth that much at all. wow. i dont even know what to think anymore.

    • Avatar
      BelgianJuventino July 2, 2014 at 6:52 pm

      Don’t be too negative mate, Iturbe was doing nice last season. Agreed its a very high price, but he’s far from ours yet, Milan is chasing him hard as well, so we’re not the only one who believe in his capabilities. I think he would be a great addition to the team, despite the enormous price tag.

      Sidenote: I still want Sanchez xD

          BelgianJuventino July 2, 2014 at 9:27 pm

          Switching one of them to the left should be possible, Iturbe is left footed so I don’t see why he wouldn’t be able to do that. I’m happy to see Marotta going far for once, even if the targeted player isn’t worth the amount just yet, but he has the talent to be

            JuventusVidal July 2, 2014 at 10:25 pm

            because he’s not that good of a crosser. his main game, like berardi’s, is cutting in and passing/shooting

      tpick July 2, 2014 at 7:30 pm

      Sanchez’s price has gone up to around 30m, Marotta wont go above 25 or 27m. There are so many Padoin’s that can be bought with the extra 5m. Or we could co-own the fuck out of some rando.

            good, then marotta cant renew any of the randoms that we used to co own. time to start thinning the herd of young players we have that will never develop into anything. players that cost us a little here and a little there, money that could just be used to get someone good. i feel we miss out on a lot of players now a days by only a few million, because marotta is worried about the next mediocre italian player.

    the thing is we need 2 wingers. also, if coman is going to be in the first team, why are we getting another young player with just potential? iturbe would end up being a waste of 25mil. considering berardi is going to come back next season and plays the same position iturbe does, we’d prbly have to sell iturbe. it’d be tough to get a profit on this kid

      Papilaya(John)™★★★ July 2, 2014 at 11:27 pm

        JuventusVidal July 2, 2014 at 11:30 pm

        he’s been over hyped. the main problem i have with iturbe, aside from his hugely ridiculous price, is that he is very similar to berardi and not as good as him. there are better young wingers with immense potential that we could get for 25mil who would also be able to play when berardi is brought back next season

          Papilaya(John)™★★★ July 2, 2014 at 11:32 pm

          Well if theyre pursuing him so strongly i can only assume that there is something Conte sees in him…

          Im mostly happy that this is a major sign that we will be seeing different formations next season.
