Inter Milan, out of nowhere, produced a very dismal performance in the Italian top tier before going into international break as they were thrashed by Atalanta by a margin of 4 goals to one. Inter had won 7 games on the bounce ahead of that game and were the favorites to earn all three points on their visit to Bergamo, but as it turned out, not only were they handed a defeat, it was a humiliating defeat. They never seemed to be able to match Atalanata at any stage of the game.
However as the Serie A was back to action again yesterday after the international break, the routine service resumed for Inter as they thumped Frosinone at San Siro to register their 9th
victory in the league in 13 games. The hosts put on an absolutely clinical show as they were flawless both with their attack and defense. They kept a clean sheet, while found the back of the net on 3 occasions to make it a totally one-sided affair.

Reputed Croatian agent Marko Naletilic has backed Ivan Perisic to remain at Inter Milan beyond the summer transfer window. The 29-year-old was one of the standout performers for Croatia during their runner-up finish at the World Cup and he has since been linked with a probable move to Manchester United.
However, agent Naletilic does not believe the Nerazzurri will sanction his departure and the attacker could be further motivated by the potential signing of compatriot Luka Modric from Real Madrid, he said: “I do not think Perisic will go away from Inter. Luciano Spalletti appreciates him a lot. With Mauro Icardi he is the most important player on the team and I am sure that he will remain. The arrival of Luka Modric would be added motivation for him to stay also.”

Inter Milan have reached out to Real Madrid over the possibility of signing Luka Modric this summer. Reports in Italy claim the club met with the player’s agents, and surprisingly a move could be in the offing. The 32-year old is a starter for Madrid, and with Cristiano Ronaldo and former Coach Zinedine Zidane out, it might be too much too soon for Madrid to sanction Modric’s exit.
Modric, the 2018 World Cup standout player, played 43 times last season, helping them win their third straight Champions League title. Inter Milan want him to solidify their midfield. The Serie A side want the Croatian to follow the route of Ronaldo and move to Italy.

Inter Milan is emerging as a dark horse for the Serie A title. Napoli, Roma and perhaps AC Milan were expected to present the toughest challenges to Juventus’ bid for a seventh straight league title. But after beating Roma comprehensively in the Italian capital as well as collecting victories over Fiorentina and Spal, Inter Milan could pose a serious threat.
“We know that despite our three victories we still have not achieved anything,” Inter midfielder Matias Vecino said. “To finish at the top you have to leave no point behind and for this reason there is still a lot of work to do. We must not let our guard down and we need to keep working because the season is long. The objective is to win all of our matches up until the next break.” Continue reading “Inter Could Win Title Under Spaletti”

“We want to keep Perisic. He’s a very important player for the team. We are counting on him to start the new season. But if somebody comes in with a very difficult offer to reject then we will consider that, but of course we need to find a valid alternative for Perisic as well,” Spaletti said.
