As the transfer window approaches, a new generation of Italian footballers has already made their mark on the game.
From the youth teams to the senior squads, from the top European leagues to the World Cup, a generation of talented young Italians are set to make a name for themselves in the country.
The new generation is making a big difference for the game in Italy, and with the new transfer window looming, a few pointers to help you prepare for the new season and get yourself in the right frame of mind to get the most out of your transfer offer.
Do you want to get in on the action?
Many players are on the lookout for an opportunity to play for a bigger club than their local team.
So it’s important to have the right attitude about the transfer market when it comes to the transfer process.
Be open to offers, especially if they are coming from overseas.
Be prepared to talk about your options and what you want out of the deal.
This is crucial.
It’s one thing to get your name in the papers when you play for your club, but when you go out on the pitch for your local club, you have to be more open about your plans and the reasons for going.
In order to ensure your offer is considered and you are being offered the best possible deal, do not forget to keep track of what other clubs are offering.
Don’t be scared to ask questions about the club you are considering, or the club they are considering joining.
A good sign is that a club might be open to the idea of recruiting a young player from abroad, and you can ask if they would be willing to listen to your offer.
Do not be too hard on yourself and do not be afraid to talk to the manager or scouts about your goals and ambitions.
A player who is good enough to play in Serie A could be a player who could play in the Premier League or the Champions League.
The more the merrier.
If you are looking to make the move to Serie A, the best way to do so is by going to a Serie A club.
As a result, this will help you get the best deal possible, as a number of clubs have experienced success recruiting young players to their teams.
Do your homework.
If your club does not have a transfer window open, do your homework before you make a decision.
You will need to weigh up what clubs have the most available talent, as well as your club’s need to spend money on a new player.
Make sure you have some sort of scouting network.
Look into how the other clubs and the players they recruit are linked to each other, as they could potentially have a connection to a player in your club.
Understand your target.
Many clubs are happy to offer a transfer fee that is in the region of €10 million, or even higher.
However, when you are thinking about where to go for a player, make sure you understand what your club really needs and what the target is.
If it’s a younger player, be sure you get a good indication on what they need, so you know whether they are looking for a young striker, a left back, a full back, or a centre back.
Do check out the profile of the player, whether he has a transfer history and what sort of player he is.
The higher your target, the better.
Do all the research.
Make a list of all the things you are going to need in order to sign a player and make sure it’s done correctly.
If the club offers a higher transfer fee, you should be ready to listen.
Make an offer to your target player and be prepared to listen, but be realistic.
If a player is a big name in Serie B or Bologna, or they are one of the best players in Europe, be prepared for a high offer.
This can lead to you being sold to another club, which is also a bad sign.
Do it yourself.
Make the move, do it right, and do it fast.
The best way is to start a new transfer process in a few weeks time.
You should be in the market by the time you get your new contract signed, and that should be the end of it.
A lot of players are looking at their options when they have their new contract, and this is when you need to make sure that you are prepared to accept whatever offers you get.
Remember that transfer windows are open for just a few days.
This means that some players are able to make their transfer requests in the middle of the transfer period, and they can even do so right before they have to leave the country and the transfer fee becomes payable.
For those players, make the most of the opportunity, but also understand the importance of the season ahead.
When you are ready to move on, be patient and be realistic about what your future is,
