Inter Milan used to be big news here at the Football Transfer Tavern when Jose Mourinho lead the side to the treble back in 2010, but the San Siro side have endured something of a steady decline after the Portuguese tactician’s departure.
Cue our interest in the pool table rather than the Italian giants, but now they are coming back to form and president Massimo Moratti has claimed they will be looking for a forward in the January transfer window. Gazetta Dello Sport report that the money bags owner has declared his beloved side have ‘no limits’ this transfer window and the requested back up for Diego Milito is on its way.
Just who that is however is up for debate, with the president ambiguous over who they may pursue, and just yesterday we were debating over Klaas-Jan Hunterlaar. However, when opening the latest bottle of sambuca, our landlord has revealed that a former Inter player could well be on his way back in January.
Of course we are referring to City outcast Mario Balotelli who was declared ‘unamanagable’ during Mourinho’s time at the Nerazzurri, yet he is still highly regarded by his former club and had even been reported as amongst their top transfer targets this January.
Balotelli himself could be tempted back to his homeland to be closer to his newborn child, yet with his agent stating he is worth more than the Mona Lisa, just who can afford him is debatable!
