    With Messi on this position, we need wingers, not pure strikers.

    Pure strikers are probably not needed. Icardi should be ignored. I'd like to see us follow Malcom from Bordeaux and Pulisic from Dortmund very closely. Those are the type of players we should be looking at.

    Clinical yes, but also he can't stop the ball to save his life. If you don't set him up to score in front of the goal he is totally useless and you almost don't even realize he is playing.

    Exactly. Serie A is so technically poor that in recent years a considerable bunch of average players at best (Icardi included) consistently managed to go past 20 goals per season.

    That choker of Higuain destroyed the goal record of Nordahl for God's sake. Just this fact alone should teach everybody a lesson or two on the current value of this league.

    Well, so does Benz who usually hits 20+ goals per season while being the 3rd fiddle and doesn't take penalties & free kicks. But that's not exactly his primarily task anyway. Benz's job is to provide link-up between the midfield and CR7 & Bale, pressing, creating space for other players etc. Benzema simply offers much more on the table than just occasionally showing up in LiveScore.

    On the other hand, Icardi is an excellent out-and-out poacher with a very clinical finishing. Still, he is a much worse player than Benzema and wouldn't being a great fit unless you completely change the system to accommodate him (which won't happen happen).

    tbf the choker has always scored tons..... His fault though is that he chokes when the stakes are very high!
