The tifosi of Inter Milan have barely had time to celebrate the coronation of their favorite team that they must already come down to earth. Winner of the Scudetto eleven years after the coronation of the band of José Mourinho, that of Antonio Conte had brought back a smile to his fans. But for a few weeks now, the announcement of the uncertain future of coach Nerazzurro left the hypothesis of a stormy summer in Lombardy. This was confirmed this morning in the columns of the Gazzetta dello Sport.
After a final meeting with the club owner, the Italian technician decided to throw in the towel. The reason is very simple. As mentioned earlier in the morning, Conte had big ambitions, especially European, after the conquest of the title. However, Suning’s plan is to reduce the wage bill by 15 to 20% and complete the next summer transfer window with, in the best case, € 100 million in profit in the coffers. Clearly, Inter will sell this summer.
Inter are forced to sell
And for some clubs, it’s a godsend. Starting with Paris Saint-Germain. The Gazzetta dello Sport says indeed that the vice-champion of France 2021 is interested in a certain Achraf Hakimi. Arrived in Milan in 2020 from Real Madrid, the Moroccan international (34 caps, 3 goals) was recruited for € 40 million. A profitable investment since the ex-Merengue was a hit for his first season on the other side of the Alps (7 goals and 10 assists in 37 league matches).
On paper, Hakimi has everything the ideal target for PSG. In search of an urgent right-back, the capital club no longer relies on Alessandro Florenzi (loaned with option to buy by AS Roma), wants to get rid of Thilo Kehrer and was not more impressed than that by the services of Colin Dagba. It remains to be seen how much Inter will ask for for a linked player until 2025.
