I was just thinking about the Batigol move (not a flop, since he was showing a huge decline). Nowadays, 32-33 doesn't seem so bad (Forlan was expected to do much better, fx) but back then it was a risk. Still, we were strongly rumoured to be going in hard for a 35 year-old Romario in 2001, iirc. Combine these moves with gifting Pirlo and Seedorf to Milan. Our transfer team had to be hitting the crystal meth hard back then.Yeah, Pancev had an astonishingly bad record at Inter. Especially when you consider he had won the European Cup and Golden Boot with Red Star.
Good case for him being Inter's biggest flop of all time, although it is hard to top Gabigol.
Good call on Pancev. I didn't know enough about Gabigol to call him a flop.
