Kovacic_Real

According to Spanish newspapers the arrival of Dani Ceballos at Real Madrid threatens Mateo Kovacic’s playing time: the Croatian now faces large competition in the midfield and this could give him the idea of a departure. After having rejected the offer of 25M Euros from Tottenham, Real could sit and listen to other proposals from Italy: Inter could go to the assault, as well as Milan and Napoli according to AS. Although, in order to convince ‘Los Blancos’ there needs to be a good proposal, since the player wants to stay in Madrid and Zinedine Zidane hinted to also count on him.

    Yeah it ain’t happening. News of the day is we’re closing the deal on Vecino from Viola. DiMarzio confirmed. So… congrats to all of us I guess.

    • Azzkikr

      Congrats to us all indeed.

      Mario, grandpa valero, Fagliardini, Kondogbia and Vecino (maybe even Brozo as he seems hard to sell)….

      Talk about an average midfield beyond belief. How the heck are Inter supposed to catch up to the top with such a mediocre bunch, not a single one who excels at anything.

      So Inter went from wanting 2 of Roma midfielders to getting 2 of 8th placed Fiorentinas, brilliant stuff lol.

      • Alex

        I don’t really understand what your problem is with Gagliardini. The best player of our second half of the season last year. Only 22 years of age, great physique and passing ability. Really a good box-to-box midfielder.

        • Azzkikr

          He is mediocre at best at everything he does.

          Atalanta performed better without him.

          If he wasnt italian, he would never have been signed.

    • Mike

      What do you guys think of Vecino though? Is he any good? Why did Spalletti insists on buying him even from his Roma days?

  • Alex

    We just got Borja, so getting Kova will not solve any problems for us. At the same time if he moves to EPL, his price tag will inflate so much that we can never get him back, like ever. Or he might go to Bilan. I say get this kid, we’ll figure something out!

  • Winternazionale

    I love players coming to Inter from Madrid.
    To name a few…

    • Winternazionale

      Cambiasso
      Walter Samuel
      Figo

      • Alphonse

        Sneijder

        • Alex

          Seedorf!

          • nozanneti

            etto in some way …

      • Munawir Biki

        Even Solari was more usefull than brozo

      • Winternazionale

        Zamoranoooo

  • Herak Bhowmik

    We bought Kondogbia and sold Kovacic. Our management is the most hilarious management. He was a gr8 young talent. I would love to see him with us again. His game has improved with age. So instead of going after unrealistic targets like Vidal and Kroos we should try to bring him.

    • Il Principe di Persia

      Kondo is good, the problem is our shitty coaches.

      • Herak Bhowmik

        According to recent news Spaletti is not much impressed with Kondo.

    • Omar

      Actually kova stated that he won’t come back if mancini is still at inter, so mancio was his problem, he’s playing less time in madrid now, why is he quiet now? So his problem was Inter not mancio.. fuck him and let him enjoy the bench more

  • Azzkikr

    Yea, lets waste money on another midfielder who cant defend and only knows how to make the safe pass sideways.

    • Stefano

      Kovacic ..”only safe passes sideways”?
      Really?
      Are you sure it’s football the sport you are talking about here?
      Kovacic the football player ?
      Or is it Kovacic the handball Croatian National team defender or something?

      One thing about Kovacic, like him or not , he can really make those vertical passes, and he can make them better than nobody else out there.

  • Stefano

    If he has matured a little and has become just that much more consistent and experienced, as it should be logical to expect…it would be just wonderful to me.
    I am part of the ones who appreciated his quality and potential very much.

  • hitman

    No thank you he is overrated he demand to be sold Gagliardini is way better than him, Valero is OK though but im not happy with his transfer J.Mario needs more trust plus another midfielder they are going for CMD.

  • JAY

    i loved this player so much when he was at inter i cant even explain my feeling when we sold him, buying him back would ease so much pain please do it

    • Stefano

      He was pure class, beautiful to watch.
      Ok,let’s admit it.. also inconsistent at times.
      But it is logical to expect that at his age now ,after Madrid, he has matured that much to become a complete, consistent champion for us .

  • Enes Aliu

    Would be the signing of the summer.

    I’m actually having faith in Spalleti that he’ll get the best out of the players. De Boer would have used him well too but with the kind of Pioli and Mancini of course players like Kova struggle, give these guys shitheads like D’Ambrosio and JJ and friends and they are the happiest while they sit worthy, smarter players in the bench.

  • Chino_Recoba

    I don’t mind to bring him back for the moment. He arrived at the wrong time to grow. Now, we’ve a perfect role model for him as he learns from his fellow nation Modric. Borja ‘il Sindaco’ Valero will teach him how to kick the ball, make an efficient movement, & retain the ball possession.

    • Alex

      Lol, Kova is already better than Valero!

      • Chino_Recoba

        I don’t understand where the point of better is. Kova plays for Madrid it isn’t a guarantee he can be as good as Valero plays his role at Fiorentina. Simply, Valero is the brain & general of Fiore midfield. In other words, he is proven in Serie A.
        I’m not in oppostion to Kova’s arrival, instead I suggest him to learn running the midfield from experienced Valero if only he returns.

  • Thahir

    hell yeah..bring him home..

  • Musavie Abdillah

    Rejected 25m huh?
    Let’s offer them loan with 3m fee, and have option to buy at end of loan, fee set at 12m… ;P

  • Patar Ronnie Hatigoran

    HUGE YESSS…

  • Dani Milekić

    Together with Gagliardini and Joao Mario. Mmmm… It would actually be great. I’d love it.

    • Alex

      I say put Mario instead of Candreva as RW. Play 4-3-3, with Gaglia-Kdog as box-to-box and Kova as regista

      • Dani Milekić

        K-Dog gave me cancer against Nurnberg. And’ I’m not sure about Mario as a winger. He can probably play it but I don’t think he excels there.

        • Alex

          The problem I see with Mario is his inability for defensive positioning. I saw time and time again last season, that when Icardi went to apply press, Mario was not on the smae page with him at all. Spaletti’s main tactic is applying high pressing-line. I think it’s unlikely to see him trusting Mario as AM. It is worth to mention that Spaletti preferred Brozo as AM to Mario in the game against Nurenbyrg as well.

          • Azzkikr

            Considering the lack of scoring ability in Inters midfield, then playing J.Mario on the wing would be a disaster.

            Inter needs wingers capable of scoring 10+ goals and J.Mario is certainly not capable of that.

          • Alex

            Well Mario would lose the ball far less than Candy. Mario can compensate with his ability to keep the ball and make better passes rather than aimless crosses to set up Mauro for more goals.

          • Dani Milekić

            I don’t think there will be an AM at all. As soon as we make all transfer moves we should shift to 4-3-3 but you never know.

  • nozanneti

    didn’t I tell you ?? LOL
    I’ve never liked him since time I was watching him in dinamo-zagreb.
    he is a sort of pussy, no guts, no balls … and no long passing skill.

    • sleimani

      Thank you, kova extremely overrated… no thanks let him go anywhere else, I don’t want players that have 0 balls.

      • sleimani

        We already have mario do the : can’t shoot, can’t defend, can’t do nothingness but pass and dribble… formula, one toothless player is enough… oh wait we have gagliardini too… man I miss the days of midfielders with nuts: stankovic, veron, cuchu, motta, etc… heck even Muntari was more decisive!!

        • Pradana Gilang

          Absolutely agree.. what we are missing for couple years is hardworking yet tactically intelegent midfielder. Our current midfielder is like playing with high heels every game, walking on catwalk, showing themselves. Rube has Pogba, Marchisio, and Vidal in early resurrection era. Napoli and Roma also full of nuts. That’s what every serie A team need. Guts. That’s why I won’t admire that calhanoglu or biglia thing from our noisy neighborhood. They won’t go anywhere near scudetto race with pussy midfielder. My point is, enough with Kovacic. I still try to act positive tough, while waiting what kind of midfielder and winger would we sign.

          • Alex

            You want guts?! We have Medel, and we all know how that has worked for us!

          • Munawir Biki

            Maybe they want to sign melo back

          • nozanneti

            what an idea ! ausilio please, biki didn’t mean seriously… joke, joke !

          • Alex

            These guys live in the 60s… Veratti is currently one of the best midfielders in the world but he doesn’t have “guts”… So probably a shitty player in these guys’ books

          • sleimani

            But he was mentioned tactical intelligence… not gargano intelligence .

          • Munawir Biki

            And that’s the problem. Finding smart midfielder with some muscle/guts is not an easy job to do. Yes there are a plenty with such a characteristic but also will cost us a lot.

          • Munawir Biki

            But they got kessie and still have kucka too

          • JAY

            kucka not there no more

          • Munawir Biki

            Where did he go? I though he was one of their consistent player

          • JAY

            I know bbilan fans are not happy neither, he went somewhere

          • JAY

            he went to eat doner and I don’t blame him

          • Alex

            Kessie will be a bigger flop than Kdog ever was. Mark my word..

  • CHRiS

    #BringBackKova
