I wouldn't see Mario Rui as a clear improvement on RR.

Choose a new coach who will keep 4-3-3 system for next season. Yes, our priority is a pacey left winger (inverted winger/right footed, eg: Deulofeu etc.). IMO Hakan can be converted to regista, or sell him and buy Bakayoko or Tonali.

Calabria --- Caldara? --- Romagnoli --- Rodriguez

--------------------- Hakan?

------------ Kessie -------- Paqueta

Suso --------------------------------------- LW?

We need to find a new role for Kessié, for the love of god.

I know what I'm going to say is hearsay, but he can be the next Desially in a diamond formation. All we need are two good box to box players, one of them could be Sensi.

I'd be down to try him there, or in any central midfield role in a flat 4-4-2, or something like Kante's old role of running everybody down alongside a more static anchor man, or even mezz'ala but on the other side. But it's been a while in the current role now, and it's just not good enough.

IMO Kessie and Paqueta are box to box midfielders, Kessie is more physical (defensive), while Paqueta is more technical (attacking).

I believe Kessie's major problem is brain. Or lack of. Give him a little and he'd excel in any midfield position.

One rumor is that if Giampaolo joins we'd like to try to go for Andersen and Praet. The first I haven't really noticed too much, but Praet does look like a really good midfielder. He's played right mezz'ala (or even RM) every time I've seen him, though he looks like he could play several positions in midfield.

Hakan as a registra would be asking for trouble in my opinion. He would lose the ball left and right leading to counterattacks, then launch in with his over the top tackles and get carded.

With Giampaolo it will be 4-3-1-2. Full stop.

No more 4-3-3 please

Giampaolo likes 2 strikers, at least Berlu will be happy. I wonder if we will stick with Silva as our third.

It's the logical thing to do. I mean if actually the Coach plays two strikes, what's the point of selling Silva? We'd be left with Cutrone and Piatek which means looking for an additional striker.

If we need to raise money for FFP purposes we can sell: Hakan (25), Lax (15), Andre Silva (30) (if we play with 2 strikers maybe we can keep him), Samu (20) ... they can bring around 90m in todays transfer world.

If Giampaolo really was dead set on playing 4-3-1-2 no matter what, we might was well sell Suso, who seems to have a very hard time adapting to any role outside of RW.

On paper, Silva would be ideal. He has the attributes to compliment either Piatek or Cutrone. But there is a big question mark over him. It didn't work out at Milan, which could have been down to Rino not giving him a fair go, we don't know. But more concerning is how he went to Sevilla, looked an instant success, then shortly after just fell away. Scored a hattrick on his debut and a few goals in following games (a brace against Real Madrid) but then went a long time without scoring.

He always struck me as a player with good resale value, so if that's the case despite his lack of success at Sevilla then it may be worth cashing in on him and looking elsewhere.

Agreed. We need to sell players and he could fetch a tidy sum.

The problem is none of those players will raise money from the FFP point of view. Andre Silva break even price is around 28M, so at 30M you're only making 2M as far as FFP is concerned. Hakan and Laxalt could be at 12M. If you sell Suso that is all going to be profit and help from the FFP side of things.

No blessings needed, open as you see fit.

Let's hope for a better summer market. It's safe to say the previous two have been some of the worst in history.

I hope you have a better full back than Rodriguez next season. He is too slow

FB (and ST) improvements are now in the nice to have category, as I said elsewhere we must realize that when the market opens we have only 5 'mids' (Jack, Paqueta, Biglia, Kessie, Hakan) on the squad, in total. Maldini or whoever is in charge needs to fill that first cause that's just pure urgent need at this point.
