So far, it’s been a season fulls of many ups and downs for Inter. They definitely possess the talent to compete for Scudetto. However, they’ve been exposed in some areas. So, here’s my latest article where I write about Inter Milan’s needs in the Summer Transfer Window. 

 

First Need: A Right-Back/Right-Wingback

As I’ve eluded to in previous articles such as this one, a top right-back at a decent price is tough to find. However, like some other clubs, Inter definitely needs one. In Inter’s case, their search is even more difficult, though. Antonio Conte likes to play a 3-5-2, which requires wingbacks. It’s tough to suggest right-wing backs they should go for just because not a lot of clubs play with that formation.  However, one player that could maybe fit that mould is Joao Cancelo. He definitely has to work on his ability to defend. But, he’s fast and can definitely create a lot of great attacking plays from that position. Victor Moses is not good enough in that position for Inter, neither is Candreva. Also, signing Cancelo would be simpler than the last couple of summers, considering at Manchester City, he hasn’t gotten playing time. This is definitely Inter’s biggest need and an area they should invest in, in the Summer. 

 

Second Need: A Box-to-Box Central Midfielder

This is an interesting one because, on paper, their starting midfield doesn’t have flaws. It definitely has little vulnerability. However, if Inter can, it’d be great if they tried to sign a box-to-box midfielder in the next transfer window. Now, this is a tough position to go for just because similarly to a right-back, it’s tough to find a top box-to-box midfielder for a cheap price. For this Summer, I don’t think it’s realistic for them to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic or Paul Pogba, who can play that position. However, since Stefano Sensi is injury-prone, maybe, they can sign a box-to-box midfielder to rotate with him, throughout next season. This is not their primary need in the Summer, but it’s an area worth looking at.  

 

Third Need: Depth at Centreback

Within Inter’s starting 11, they definitely have top Centrebacks. The likes of Skriniar, De Vrij and even Bastoni have been tremendous this season. The only thing Inter needs to improve in this area is their depth. Godin has lived up to expectations at Inter. However, I think he’d be a great backup option. I think that if Inter wants to improve their depth in this area, looking at players such as Kumbulla, Armando Izzo, or even Felipe may help immensely. It’d also be good to increase competition with any of those signings, which would increase their level of performance. Hopefully, they can sign either of those three or others in the centreback position. 

Maybe, the current season resumes and Inter improves their place in the standings. However, either way, these needs should be addressed. Of course, if it can be done. So, there you have it, here’s this article where I discuss Inter Milan’s needs in the summer transfer window. 

 

 

 

 

Three Current Players I’d like to see Play in Serie A

It’s official! Franck Ribery, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Romelu Lukaku will all be playing against each other in the same domestic League for the first time ever! That league is, of course, the wonderful Serie A. As a result of these players joining Serie A at the same time, I’m writing about three other ones I’d like to see play in Italy. So, enjoy!

1. KYLIAN MBAPPE

The legend of Kylian Mbappe keeps growing at a fast rate. At 21, he’s already won the World Cup as well as three Ligue 1 titles with both Monaco and PSG. He definitely boasts an impressive resume for his age. That is exactly why I’d love to see him play at a Serie A club. Imagine Cristiano Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic, and Kylian Mbappe playing in the same league. That’d be something remarkable and I hope it happens. However, the big limitation to trying to buy the player is his price. He was purchased by PSG in 2017 for 145 Million Euros plus 35 Million Euros in bonuses. Also, he keeps getting better by the day, so, I’m not sure which Serie A clubs can afford to buy him without selling many of their key players. But, it’s a dream of mine for this young star to grace the calcio fields of Italy.

2. LIONEL MESSI

As of now, it’s very difficult to see Lionel Messi going to another club other than Barcelona. Indeed, the loyalty he has for the club seems unbreakable. However, in 2005, Inter were nearly able to sign the young Lionel Messi. That’s in the past now, but, I’d still love to see him play in Serie A, not just because of his technical abilities or dribbling technique, but also because it’d be cool to see him pursuing a new challenge in his career. What better challenge than to play in Italy? Lionel Messi would also join many other Argentinean legends by playing in Italy. However, it is still only a dream, as, like I mentioned earlier, I can’t see him ever leaving Barcelona to go to another club.

3. KEVIN DE BRUYNE

It’s an interesting thing to say, but, compared to the other players in this article, I’d say Kevin De Bruyne is the most likely to make a move to Serie A. His price would be crazy. However, he would definitely be cheaper than the other two players. Also, while, he has won a bunch of silverware for Manchester City, I feel like he’s the type of player to want a new challenge. Maybe, if Manchester City plateaus with their current group, he’ll want higher level trophies such as Europa League or even Champions League trophies. A move to Serie A for Kevin De Bruyne would depend on if Man City keeps achieving the level of success that they have for the past couple of seasons. Hopefully, this move happens in the near future.
