Sky: Derby D’Italia for Gabigol?

Inter have made an approach towards Juventus target Gabriel Barbosa.

“We have spoken with Inter, but to date we have not received any official offer from them” said Barbosa’s personal agent Wagner Ribeiro to Sky Sports.

Inter Sporting Director Piero Ausilio made a phone call to ascertain the value of the player and necessary costs. €25 million is the asking price for the 19 year-old Brazilian starlet.

Ausilio has connections with the player’s agents and the player himself. Kia Joorabchian and his agents (including Ribeiro) were contacted by the club after Ausilio’s go ahead to come to an understanding.

Juventus have an agreement with the player on the grounds of contract details, however, not with the club and agents. Gabigol’s father (who plays an integral role in the negotiations) is adamant that the player will only be transferred permanently and not on loan to a European club.

The attacker only wants to play first team football with assurance.

So far Juventus have not come forward with the €25 million, and Inter have not yet made an official approach either. Inter are reportedly willing to make a €30 million offer to beat out the Turin club. All parties await further developments between clubs.

What do you think, is this a move that could come to fruition? Do you think the price is right? Comment below and let us know!

  • Mahdi Torabinejad

    Great to be back mate!

  • postal

    Screw this guy, bring in a solid regista. We got absolutely destroyed in the middle yesterday. Doesn’t matter how good our attack is if we get owned in the center by every bigger club. We need Wietsel or Mario.

    • Spas Georgiev

      Banega and Kondo/Medel will be our deep CM (in 4-2-3-1), add Brozo for 4-3-3. It would be good to have a backup regista to Banega but only at the right price.

    • Amin Sadrnejad

      We don’t need a regista.

  • Abdi

    Dear interistas we have a great squad, one of the best in serie A. Look at just our midfield we have Brozovic, Banega, Kondogbia, Perisic and Medel who are all world class players and we are also adding Candreva to that list. We have Icardi, Jovetic, Palacio and Eder upfront. We have a great keeper, the best in the league alongside Buffon. We only need to add a strong CB to fight for a starting place with Murillo and Miranda. Is this team not capable of reaching 3rd place? Of course we would need a great coach too wich Mancio clearly isn’t.

    • Tyrion Lannister

      Brozo, Kondo and Medel are not world class. Brozo is inconstant as fuck and has some potential, but he’ll never be world class, Medel is pittbull but last season he could only run after the balls and hardly recover them, he can’t be compared with the likes of Kante and Allan and Kondo didn’t manange to addapt to Serie A yet, let’s watch him this season and judge after. Perisic? Yes, he’s world class but he’s a forward, not a midfielder. We need both Candreva and Gabigol cuz we’ll play in 3 competitions this year + a new midfielder that can control the tempo of the game and make the connection between the defence and attack. Once again, I agree with you a new CB is needed considering that our first CB sub is fuckin Ranocchia, but I still think we could use Medel there.

      • Abdi

        Give Brozovic and Kondo some time. They are still young and pretty new to serie A. They will both devolop alot this season am sure. You could already see at the end of last season how much better Kondo became. And we already have a midfielder who controls the tempo and make the connection between defence and attack. His name is Banega and there very few better than him in the world when it comes to that.

        • Spas Georgiev

          Exactly!!! And Medel is a great CB, he played amazing for Chile and they won 2 Copa Amercas and did pretty good in the WC. Banega and Medel give us a lot of flexibility and options to switch tactics and formation during the game. And this has always been Mancini’s philosophy, to have a team of versatile players who can switch formation at any time (think Cambiasso, Zanetti, Figo, Stankovic, Maicon etc.). He was doing the same in Man City. It’s not a bad strategy but you need experienced, hard working players who are ready to sacrifice themselves for the team (not many of these around). Hence, Mancini’s obsession with Yaya and the like (and his frustration with Ljaic and Jojo). Cholo Simeone has a similar philosophy but he keeps the same formation and changes tempo and tactics during the game with a few tweaks

  • Tri Avianto Dayanun

    If 25 million not in cash i agree for GBgol

  • frigo

    I read that this guy Gabriel Barbosa is looking for successor in case of Icardi’s sale. I never watched him, but in transfermarkt he is listed as winger, mainly right winger, he’s only 1.78 meter tall which for me means that he can’t be central forward. And why the hell we negotiating for Candreva if we are interested in this guy?

    • Tyrion Lannister

      He’s not Icardi replacement. Suning promised us an italian and a youngster, so Candreva and Gabigol

      • frigo

        And when Gabriel Barbosa is a winger and we expect to sign with Candreva, who will sit on the bench? Perisic, Candreva or him?

        • Amin Sadrnejad

          He can play on multiple posirions, just like Perisic.

          • Tyrion Lannister

            Everyone can play on multiple positions, but their randaments are not the same. Perisic is very good as a LM, but as a RM he’s almost decent, not enough for us. As a CAM he really sucks, we saw him at the start of the previous season when Mancio used 4-3-1-2. This Barbosa has his best randament as a RW or as a CF that’s why we need him, he could play behind Icardi in a 4-4-2 but also as a RM in 4-2-3-1 or as a RW in 4-3-3

          • Wida Ayu Nurahma

            is him ljajic type of player? i wish we sign him tho, so we can have various plan, if our main plan fail. but dont you think our fake forward is too large for now? perisic, jovetic, biabia, palacio, candreva, eder.

          • Tyrion Lannister

            He’s like R9, great dribbler but not with fancy skills. That’s why I think he would fit better in Serie A than Gabriel Jesus. + Barbosa has great through passes.

          • frigo

            In that case if we will use him as right winger, why we will insist so much for Candreva and what will happen with Biabiani? If we will use him behind Icardi, what will happen with Jovetic, because he will not be very happy to sit on the bench and in this case Eder will become third or even fourth choice if Mancini prefer Palacio?

          • Tyrion Lannister

            Biabiany could leave if both Candreva and Barbosa join us. I would also sell Eder an invest that money in a midfielder/fullback/centerback.

          • frigo

            I guess i was clear enough, but if you want i will try to clarified even more! If we assume that we are almost secured Candreva and we have in attack Icardi, Perisic, Candreva, Jovetic and we can add Banega here, because is expected that Mancini will use him more as attacking midfielder! Who’s spot Gabriel Barbosa will take? Or you believe that Mancini will play with five offensive players in attack? Let alone, that we still have Eder, Palacio, Biabiani in attacking department! If we judge from what we’ve seen in preseason, Mancini insists on 4-4-2 and that means that he will use at best four offensive players.

          • Amin Sadrnejad

            Since we have to play on two hard competions (Serie A and EL) then we need squad depth and at least two players at each position.

            So it’s not a big deal to have Prisic, Candreva, Gabi, Biabiaby, Jojo, Eder, Palacio and Icardi in our roster.

    • Amin Sadrnejad

      He’s a goal scoring team player.

  • NilZola

    You can’t really judge the team by these friendlies. Almost all of our best midfield/offensive players are at home training. We will not have fullbacks like Yuto and Caner as wingbacks
    when the season starts. Although I agree that we are hardly making good publicity by losing 1-4 and Rano and Melo are truly bad.

    • Wida Ayu Nurahma

      just like bayern, almost all of their best is at home eating popcorn while watching us being humiliate. we have to wait until bayern make 7 substitutions to score a goal. N that goal was an assist from bayern defender to icardi.

  • Interfan99

    G Jesus is twice the player gabigol is… for 30 mil he’s not worth it

    • Justin ooooo

      Gabigol is still very good, up until this year Gabigol was considered the next big thing out of Brazil, not Gabriel Jesus

  • Asyrof Syarif

    Why we don’t turn our sight and make an offer to Berardi with that amount of money?

    • Hanindito Prasojo

      their president won’t sell him this season, but next season he will be available

      • diego milleto 1

        Trust me everybody is for sale for the right money,,,,, show berradi the money and watch his bosses come running,, money makes big transfers happen because no player or management can refuse big money,,, nobody absolutely nobody ok,,,

      • nozanneti

        and the next season he will be asking much more money for that in champions league reality unproven guy. gbgol is even worse case …

  • Wida Ayu Nurahma

    where’s mancini quiting news??

    • Wruce Bayne

      why? because he’s losing in f-king friendly match? don’t forget mou lose 4-1 against dortmund, so united should sack him too?

      • Aaron

        The difference is my friend mou is at a new club implementing a new system..which btw they won big vs gala and you can already see mou’s influence…whereas we have Mancini who looks clueless I can’t see what the team’s plan is not to mention he’s been here for the better part of a year and we still don’t have a set formation or starting 11….

        • Wida Ayu Nurahma

          this is exactly what i wanted to say ^^

        • Wruce Bayne

          hold on..clueless? our good players isn’t in this match, we bring this primavera mixed with bench team and remember it jut bloody friendly match it means nothing but warming up match, we already beat bayern in 2010 and won ucl which is hurt for their fans, why the f**k everyopne here lost their mind after this stupid friendly match

          • Wida Ayu Nurahma

            just like us, almost all of bayern best player is at home eating popcorn while watching us being humiliate. we even have to wait until they make 9 substitutions to score a goal. N that goal was an assist from bayern defender to icardi. Thats why this is a friendly match, because they have to be more friendly instead beating us 8-0.

          • Wruce Bayne

            FFS it seems you didn’t get my point we don’t lose our pride this match is just not so serious match ICC is nothing, do you want to say that after we lost this super glorious the new UCL competitive match we’re loser? also our key players didn’t play. it’s like a warming up match, look ahead our main focus is in serie A and EL not this icc bullshit, icc isn’t the new UCL!

          • Wida Ayu Nurahma

            at some point i agree with you. but still i hate what mancini do to our beloved club.

          • harendro

            Its 2 season already with Mancini, and they still dont understand how to move the ball from defence. I dont care with the result, we can still play a good football and lost even worse than last night’s result, and i dont care about ICC also, but its clear that, the potential 1st team player like Kondog, Miranda, Dumbrosio, and maybe Naga, or Rano that was our captain, still clueless with each other position…thats just frustrating..

          • Wida Ayu Nurahma

            mancini wont use them at all, he just let them warming up to become bench warmer. acording to his son, mancini already prepare a superior briliant tactic to surprise us all when our main player join to begin the season. i just dont get it why keep warming up a player who doesnt have a chance to play for us next season. is that stupid?

          • ezekiel

            “according to his son.” where did you get this information!? is it valid information or just sarcastic!? can you share the link?

          • Wida Ayu Nurahma

            you have to read few comment before, so you’ll understand what its mean bro^^

          • Wruce Bayne

            yeah it’s more briliant when u sacking coach after friendly result

          • Aaron

            You’re missing the entire point…it’s not about the result…idc if we lose 10 nil ..if i can see what you’re trying to do with the players whether primivera or not I’m fine…but they literally look lost on the field…whether some main players r there or not because trust me there comes a time when the same players fielded last night would have to play in euro or copa or even in the league …they looked like a sunday league team..sure we had rano in the back that caused chaos but every other player apart from bessa would have started a match for us in the previous season…stop being so pro mancini and acknowledge that there is no plan or identity to our play.As my fellow interista stated there are managers who’ve done more to various clubs with less time and less money offered to them..just look at Klopp at Liverpool..and all we get is a coach begging for washed up players who only have 2 seasons at best on them(yaya) call for meetings to beg when he should be looking for good reasonably aged players who can play and give inter an identity.Which leads me to the question..what is mancini’s project? To waste inter’s money only to sell the players after 1 season? To never use youth players and make them lose confidence in ever breaking into the squad? Look at mufc with rashford..give youth a chance,you don’t need to spend 30-60m on a striker when there very well might be hidden diamonds in our team but guess what? Under mancini we will never know.So sir,if you can tell me what mancini’s formation is and what he’s trying to do then I’ll accept and let it be…if you can’t then …well we know he needs to go.

          • Ronny

            Still to early to judge, remember van gaal ? his friendly record with ManU was magnificent but we all know where’s ManU Last standing, sure it’s suck to loose but it’s too early to judge. Let’s see where we are at the end of the season. I still remember Mihajlovic result in friendly was better then inter but at the end of the season you know the last standing right? Changing a coach in the middle of season is never a good idea

          • Aaron

            You know what? That’s right..van gaal had a good record pre season and it didn’t go across into the league..as with the ex milan coach however at least at the end of their respective tenures I can say what their formation was and what they intended to do…what exactly is Mancini trying to do? What is his formation? And also it isn’t a good idea to sack a manager in the middle of the season which is why it would be of the best interest if he was gone before the start of the season.If we fail to get to CL spots we will be forced into selling a team we took how many years to build? Nope,I don’t think so.

          • Wruce Bayne

            sure, sack him hire other coach we need time to adapt again we lose sack that coach again theres no stability in team, stop playing fifa and fm this is real life, we can’t win the league with 20 yo boys we need team leader and the experience one but im sure it’s not yaya.

          • Aaron

            AHAHAHAH….WAKE UP WE ARE NOT WINNING THE LEAGUE NEXT SEASON…please stop sounding like those delusional arsenal fan boys who think they can win the league with one signing…we can get experience,youth whatever it does not matter if you don’t employ proper tactics or make proper subs…you think signing yaya toure would automatically bolster the team? Well idk about you but I’ve been watching city in the PL as my fav english club and yaya is definitely on his way down..his legs are almost gone and he’s become very unmotivated and lazy.Please tell me how on earth he would be motivated to play for inter who’s likely not to win the league for at least 2 years? Does he even have that much time before he retires? Come on..let’s be real.

          • Wruce Bayne

            you want me to repeat my word again?

          • Aaron

            Why even mention fifa and fm? That has absolutely nothing to do with Mancini’s incompetent style of play in this modern age…wanting to buy players who we cannot realistically afford seems more like fifa to me 🙂 imagine the other players seeing this 40+ year old earn more than them…the dressing room would be so happy!

          • Wruce Bayne

            look pal i didn’t mention we need to bring old player oh god read my last word again we need experience and team leader AND IT’S NOT FUCKING YAYA

          • Aaron

            That’s who your beloved Mancini wants!…he’s not going after the right people..just trying to rekindle his old connection with ex city players..though I wouldn’t mind zabaleta…

          • ezekiel

            winning the league is not our goal.. our goal is top 3..

          • Aaron

            Tell that to wayne…I’m fully aware of what we can accomplish with the players currently available but I’m not sure Mancini can get the best out of them…that’s all.

          • ezekiel

            changing coach now is to late.. not so many option out there.. let’s wait and see what will happen this season..

          • ezekiel

            that’s not aply to all player though.. for example icardi has improve a lot.. his off the ball movement is far better now in mancini era.. same goes to brozo.. even perisic and kondogbia were starting to show their capability.. only a few death wood that never really change.. santon and his injuries issue all season.. everybody said it’s bullshit, and his failed transfer this month proved his injuries problem. inter medical staff always lacking. i notice this since 90’s..

          • Wida Ayu Nurahma

            its not about sack-suck thing! the diferent betwen us is you that rate mancini too high, for me what mancini do to managing our team is not good enough, even worse i call it fail and disaster!
            stop being ignorant, we just think its better late than nothing or too late.
            what you see in the last season is being seen again on this pre season match. we can still gambling to see if wancini can provide us what we want, or start from begining later when the race almost finish. i wish we can reach our target this season, so that i hope mancini can do well too, even though he disappointing us lately.

          • Wruce Bayne

            you still think pre season is very important and without our key player, k den i won’t answer it again because i already wrote it and stop pretending to be a woman.

          • Wida Ayu Nurahma

            lol

          • Spas Georgiev

            Let’s assume we sack Mancini now. Who do you think we can get in the last minute? While I agree Mancini may not be the best man to develop a young team and his tactics seem a bit outdated, still he’s better than all the experiments we’ve had since Mou left. Don’t forget that up until the end of 2015 Inter had the most solid defense in Serie A and probably Europe. Unfortunately, Mancini’s authoritarian style leads to conflicts with the players and eventually he loses the dressing room (and so does Mou). No doubt that Inter need to bring another coach but only if he’ll improve the team. Sacking Mancini just to replace him with another experiment would be a big mistake and would brake the team spirit. The good players would ask to leave and Inter would be helpless to stop them with all the appeal of the EPL TV money. Then, no serious coach with ambition would be willing to take over a broken team. And back in the vicious circle (2010-2015) we go. So let’s just stick with Mancini for one more year while we build on the core of talented players we already have and then bring someone like Simeone to finish the job.

          • Aaron

            Hmmmm…that’s true.My biggest worry is that we fail to qualify for CL next year.All the players we promised CL with this ‘project’ would want to leave as well.As long as suning doesn’t renew like speculations suggest then I’m okay.

      • nozanneti

        you seem to be quite a limited person, my dear john wayne. watch the statistics of the match and of the matches played in usa… disaster !!

        • Wruce Bayne

          what do you expect we played without murrilo, borozo, perisic, and banega. PS: Rano is nice person but shitty footballer

      • Wida Ayu Nurahma

        just like us, almost all of bayern best player is at home eating popcorn while watching us being humiliate. we even have to wait until they make 9 substitutions to score a goal. N that goal was an assist from bayern defender to icardi. Thats why this is a friendly match, because they have to be more friendly instead beating us 8-0.

      • Abdi

        Not because of loosing a freaking friendly. Because of in 2 and a half seasons he hasn’t even given this team an identity. This team is still clueless. He is still shifting formations. The players look unsure. Paulo Sousa has done more Fiorentina in one season. Mauricio Pocchetino has done more for Tottenham in one season than Mancini has done in 2 and a half. There is no way on earth we ever gonna reach CL with Mancio even if we signed Messi AND CR7.

        • ezekiel

          maybe you mean 1 and a half season!?

          • Abdi

            Yeah my bad. He took over november 2014 i think. Half of season 2014/15 and whole of season 2015/16.

          • ezekiel

            yeah… but you can’t compare him with sousa and pochetino. sousa and pochetino win nothing yet. i think the reason inter still stick with mancini because we don’t have too much option out there.. and don’t forget his 7 trophies for inter in 2004-2008.

          • Wruce Bayne

            too many guys here obsessed with EPL trends and too much playing videogames like fm and fifa

          • Aaron

            Stop dwelling in the past.This is the present…if your past secured your future then mou would still be at chelsea….ur CV is unimportant if you can’t get results currently.And besides…those wins were when the league was extremely weak and we had a super team .just like at city..scraped across with easily the most expensive team in the league with the most quality players? Why? He was never as good as you think if everything is put into context

          • ezekiel

            the league extremely weak!? are you kidding me bro!? so milan who won their champion league consider to be a weak team!? then all of the team in europe must be weak too.. you never captured my point aren’t you!? i never against changing coach, but now it’s too late.. and not many option out there.. i rather wait and see for next season..

          • Wruce Bayne

            sack mancini and every inter players become world class quality

          • Aaron

            You don’t need a team stacked with world class players to do well.You need everyone to be on board with what you’re doing and an identity as a team…two of which inter doesn’t have.

    • Asyrof Syarif

      Ada link rumor/berita itu? 🙂

      • Wruce Bayne

            i dont give a flying damn this is sempreinter english not hindi or malay site

          • ezekiel

            although it’s kinda harsh but i agree with you… sometime, people like to use other languages, and it’s frustated me, since i have to use google translate to translated them.. and you know, google translate most of the time are just stupid..

          • Wruce Bayne

            exactly! plus it’s strange to see people use their language in english site

          • nozanneti

            generaly, english is a shit language !!

          • Wruce Bayne

            gtfo

          • ezekiel

            then, why you use it!?

          • mongkih

            That dude was asking about the link of the news stating about mancio needs to share some of his income with his ex wife monthly,

            Well from the respond and the way he asking in our national language spontaneously without realizing that he was asking not in english.

            Just let it go bro :))

          • ezekiel

            maybe he’s accidentally use his national language. and we’re a bit harsh too. ^^ but i agree with wruce bayne about using only english for this site. because it’s an international fansite, so we should respect everybody here by using a language that can be understand by everybody.. i’m sorry for your countrymen, but you know we didn’t mean to be rude right!?^^

          • nozanneti

            razumiješ li ti ovo ?

          • ezekiel

            so what if i understand it!? the problem is, this is an international fansite not croatian. so you need to respect other readers..

          • TBN SML

            I’m Indonesian but feel irritated when someone use indonesian here and also others with their own language. English mo*******er!

    • Anton Setiawan

      Dont think he will resign soon, unless fired. Don’t forget he also needs to pay his ex wife every month

    • Abdi

      We still waiting anxiously for the OFFICIAL: INTER SACK MANCINI

  • Anang Shikamaru

    we dont need new player..we need mancini to be sacked ..

  • Tyrion Lannister

    25+5 Bonus

  • Justin ooooo

    We failed every other young talent signing, doubt this could happen either

    • ngalih

      Like coutinho…

      • nozanneti

        that mens soon heading for premier league …

    • Tyrion Lannister

      OK let s sign only old players. Yaya zabaleta, we can even ask Zanetti to come back

      • Rocco Rosano

        I have no doubt that Zanetti would probably play better than all of our wide backs. So that wouldnt be to bad….and he would bring command to the squad!

      • Seiya20n

        I’ll play Zanetti every day over our current players—
