We know that we did sign Sorin & Oddo. We know that Pobo & DLP are out of contract and out of the team. We know that number of players has to go down. 2 in, two out..so far
Now taking the lead from Mattias, and following the first thread on this issue, I'm asking you:
What if we actually dont manage to sell anyone?
Lazio is hungry for cash. Player exchange is simply not an option if you want to reduce the squad. Mandietta going to Barca with Rivaldo coming to Lazio does not solve anything on the players wages issue, maybe just adding problems Simeone & Lopez transfer to Atletico is still on hold, nobody is ready to fork out the money for Crespo, and Nesta, although still dream of many teams, is still without anything that would look like semi-serious offer. Just pile of rumors comming from all sides. Some players are allowed to leave the team for free, but no movement on their transfer either.
Crag wants to sell, but he wont sell for peanuts. Considering that financial situation is in dire straits, and that his recent financial manouvers managed to cover up for the loses in previous year, he might decide to give it a go with the current team for another season. Or if not decide, he might be forced to do it.
So, current team (more or less - if some of the free players leave) + Oddo & Sorin.
We were saying last season that our midfield was simply ineffective, ie Crespo or whovere was up-front was not supplied with decent passes. Will arrival of one great left-back & one great right-back solve this problem? Secondly, we will still be with Fiore in the middle. Is his "adapting" period over and will he actually perform close to what he did towards the end of previous season? Will Mandietta's form finally pick-up after a year on the bench?
Too many questions
