not signing Dest or any decent right fullback

crap mercato with poor planning.
I disagree about almost everything you said.
You realize there is no market for those guys right?
Also, there's no way we afford another right back with Danilo still on our books.
Paying 50% of Khedira and Higuain's wages is a lot better than paying 100%.
As for Dzeko, name a striker who we can realistically buy who has Dzeko's attacking output (goals+ assists)
As for Aouar, Covid destroyed the finances of every big club, we just can't expect a 50-60 million signing without selling.

Everything you mentioned is due to mistakes we've made in the 2-3 years. This mercato, on its own, has been good considering the circumstances.

We seem to play 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 so RB is irrelevant but more of a RWB in which we have Cuadrado who is actually very good.
Khedira and Higuain - Market is crap after Covid-19 and its not as if Khedira is some Messi... Both players are practically finished and could only get offers in the US,China or some side in Qatar..
Dzeko - I think he`ll surprise you - He is old and its true I`d prefer a younger player but the deal isnt bad and is a fantastic team player. Would also arrive with no serious ego..
Bernardeschi and D.Costa - Market isnt over yet.. D.Costa has just been linked with a return to Bayern while in the past I remember Man Utd on him.
Aouar depends on other leaving as there is no money
