The first signing of next season is Diego Godin from Atletico Madrid and all the details for the Uruguayan defender have been resolved and now all that’s missing is the official announcement, but the player has to stay focused for his final season at Atletico before this happens.
Meanwhile, Corriere dello Sport reports that Inter’s interest in Sampdoria’s Andersen has cooled down since they now believe Bastoni to be a viable option, completing the defence with the current foundation of Skriniar and De Vrij. Rome based Corriere dello Sport also ensures that Inter will not sell the Slovak, no matter what.
As for the midfield, however, this heavily depends on Inter’s ability to qualify for the Champions League for the second consecutive season since their return. As long as we assume that Inter will qualify, names like Rakitic, Modric and Kroos remain a possibility.
All three players are being reported to be on the move from Spain come the Summer but Inter will need the financial income from the competition to compete with Europe’s elite in attracting these players and of course, affording their clubs asking prices.
Finally, the newspaper analyses Inter’s players who are on loan. Politano is likely to be redeemed from Sassuolo, whereas an assessment must be made of Keita from here until the end of the season, since he has been injured and will need to go the extra mile to convince Inter to pay his €34 million redemption fee, considering Monaco are unlikely to give any discounts.
Lastly, Marotta is a great admirer of Darmian and would rather try bringing him to the team than keep Cedric.
