22m is normal Price for him, potok at the numbers we got for Cerrito, Audero or Orsolini, young Italians price are inflated.

We got 30mil for Spinazzola too...did you read the previous page?
Spina was a useful player we shouldn't sell, he is far better than Pellegrini, possibly a Sandro replacement and we only made (29,5-22) 7,5mil profit from his sale, that's really bad business, initially they said (25-15) 10mil which was hardly bearable, but not even 10, is pathetic!
And the big problem in this transfer, as always is that we inflated prices on nobodies and give away proven champions for peanuts (essentially 7,5mil)
There are no excuses, if we only wanted to balance the books, we should pick useless players, decent Italian Lbs are extremely hard to find, ever since Zambro we have wasted millions in our quest to find one and when we did, we gifted him away for nothing...
Or we could demand a better player like Zaniolo and pay more, paying 22mil for a garbage player is a critical mistake

Footballer prices are inflated in general. €22m would be normal even without the accounting jiggery-pokery.
True, that's a universal truth, unless Juve sells a player...

Look at the prices we got for Cerri, Orsolini, Mandragora, Audero etc and rethink this sentence.
We made a decent profit in comparison to what we did in the past.
But if we were to buy those players today, with those inflated prices, don't you think that we would spend more?
We take average players from mediocre teams and make them champions, some of them are proven against high competition.
And we are a destination that can make dreams come true for most of the aspiring young talents.
This is more like normal, what was happening under Marotta was a disaster.
Remember the Moggi times, were we were selling garbage to fund WC acquisitions?
We have a long road ahead, but for starters we need to get more for our Spinas and pay significantly less for those Pellegrinis...

im telling you @Marty did fantastic rewamping this forum. Right in time before ronaldo joined and brought like 40% increase of visitors here haha
I disagree, it still lags in high attendance, the cookies that remember the page you were in a thread fail most of the times, popularity cannot be disactivated and alters the characters and behaviors of the posters, it's a great hassle to post a pic, etc etc

Just wait a couple of years and repeated rants from Cronios about this transfer and he will start saying that the transfer fee is 32 M€

With Spinazzola we lose a very handsome player and instead we get this Martin Fuchs double.

Clearly a big downgrade in handsomeness @Lion

If you see this transfer from FFP point of view, it is good. Spizza is our youth product, so all the transfer fee (29.5M) will count as profit. When we buy Pellegrini for 22M, with 4-5 year of contract, the amortiasation per year will be only around 4-5M, so we gain around 25M in FFP perspective for this year, which is very helpful considering we need to meet FFP requirement after all of Ronaldo/Cancelo/D.Costa transfers last year.

This transfer also allow us to not be low-balling by Man City in Cancelo deal. Mcity knows we need to balance our FFP books, so they are low-balling us on Cancelo with their 50M offer. With Spizza deals, we are in much better position, so we can afford to go hard ball.

We are not so rich, so sometimes sacrifies must be made.
