If they had kept Lamela I bet Conte would have liked him a lot.
Bizarre that they used him as a very small partial makeweight in a deal for a kid who doesn’t seem anywhere close to ready to play in the PL.
To be honest, while getting Conte was a coup, Paratici’s time there otherwise looks pretty shit so far. Gollini, Gil, and Royal all look like shit signings. Romero too early to tell given his injuries. They lost Vinicius and Bale and somehow didn’t replace either one so they have no depth in attack at all. And he hired Nuno and wanted to hire Gattuso.
