Mauricio Isla, the Chilean fullback of Udinese, has been monitored throughout the season by Inter transfer market men and is considered to be a possible replacement of Maicon if the Brazilian does not renew his contract. In addition to the defender, Alejandro Gomez has become more and more hotter for the Inter midfield. To clarify these two situations are their South American agent Leo Rodriguez.
Let’s start with Isla: going to Inter?
“Right now I prefer not to expose myself and not commenting on the daily rumors suggesting Isla is leaving Udine. We all know that he is a great player and what he has done.”
Can he really change team though?
“Now we just have to see what the developments are: there are 3-4 big clubs who follow him even outside of Italy. We will wait and see what is going to happen when he completes his rehabilitation.”

There was a time when Andrea Ranocchia really thought of leaving Inter, even on loan. With Lucio, Samuel and Chivu, he found himself the bench more often than the field. “When do I play if there guys are already there,” the former Genoa player said. But after few months, the situation has changed, not directly related to his will. Lucio, in fact, through his agent, has said that he wanted leave by terminating the contract with Inter. Besides that, Chivu has not yet responded to the proposed renewal of Inter. Therefore, there is only Samuel left for central defender position. It is clear that someone will come (up til now the hottest name is Marco Andreolli who would make his return to Inter) but one way or another, the pair of Samuel-Ranocchia would be on in the central defense for next season.

Thursday and Saturday in Indonesia to play two friendly matches marking the beginning of a fruitful collaboration with the Asian world.
Jakarta – Inter are going to fly to Indonesia today (Tuesday) to play two friendlies worth 2.5 million euros and to open a series of very important initiatives in marketing and building image. The Nerazzurri, overall, have a great appeal in all of Asia so much so that they were forced to give up invitation coming from India and Vietnam.
Inter fever It is not a coincidence that Jakarta is the bridge of a major project. Although there are 11 thousand kilometers between the Italy and Indonesia, Inter and the Asian country are in fact united by the affection of more than 15 million fans. A distance that will definitely canceled when the team of Stramaccioni landed tomorrow at the Soekarno Hatta Airport in Jakarta. But already the boundaries…

Inter-Palacio: and one… Waiting for Lavezzi
Agreement for the Genoa Argentinian: 10 million cash to Preziosi.
This deal does not rule out il Pocho: contact with Napoli in a few days.
Milan – The light was lit last Thursday and now it is shining brightly: Rodrigo Palacio now is truly one step away from wearing the shirt of Inter after a chase which lasted for one year. Meetings have been going on in the past few days between Inter technical director Marco Branca, sporting director Piero Ausilio and the two agents Gabriele Giuffrida and Roberto Da Petri. And now there is white smoke. Genoa will have 10 million in cash and Rodrigo Palacio is going to sign a three-year (or two-year contract with option for a third) contract which is going to be signed at the end of this week.
Moratti conductor Question: but is Palacio signing going…

Some have called him the best player to have ever played on a football pitch. Others called him a Phenomenon, the likes of which the world will never ever see again. No matter what you think of him, Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima will always be regarded by every football fan as one of the greatest ever players in the sport’s history. Having played for our beloved Inter, Ronaldo has also cemented himself as a legend at the club that very few forwards will be able to be compared to, let alone best.
I’ve always liked Coutinho & have been disappointed with the lack of chances he’s had in the past but after a successful loan spell in Spain & with Stramaccioni in charge I think he’s going to prove himself as a hugely important player for us next season
He is considered to be very important in Stramaccioni’s project. After spending a few months in Spain with Espanyol, Coutinho has returned to Appiano Gentile and he is ready to win for the black and blue shirt. But first he looks back at his time in Spain:
“Playing at Espanyol was a very good opportunity. I did well by showing my worth after a long time that I did not play. They gave me confidence and I am physically very well. I was in constant contact with Inter. The Espanyol Messi? I enjoyed being called that but I am far from Messi. The only thing that we share is perhaps our height. There are very good youngsters in Italy like Destro and El Shaaraway but there are more opportunities abroad.
“I was doing well at Espanyol but I have a contract with Inter. I rally want to wear the black…

After two days of training, Inter will enjoy a weekend of rest before leaving for the Indonesia tour on Tuesday, via Singapore and will land in Jakarta on Wednesday morning.
The team for these two friendly matches on the 24 (against All Star of the local league) and 26 (against the Indonesian national team) will be known on Monday after the last training session in Pinetina. Stramaccioni will have three “new” players on the team who just returned from on loan (Coutinho, Dellafiore and Jonathan) and some Primavera players in Biraghi, Longo and Tremolada. In terms of absences, the first reason is due to national team duty (Forlan, Guarin, Juan Jesus, Ranocchia and Sneijder) and the injuries (Alvarez, Castaignos, Chivu, Obi and Stankovic). Lucio should also be on this list because his desire to change teams and that intention was made by his agent.

Having a semi synthetic pitch isn’t ideal by any means but something needed to be done about the state of the Meazza pitch, so until the day we actually get our own stadium this is the only realistic option to avoid having to relay the playing surface several times per season.
Inter will be inaugurating the new surface of the San Siro. Inter and Milan have been assured that the work on this new surface (mixed with natural and artificial grass) will be completed by the end of July. So the team of Andrea Stramaccioni will play on it in the qualifying round of the Europa League. The two games that Inter are going to participate in will be on the 2nd and the 9th of August.

It’s a tough call who I’d prefer at Inter, Lucas has the potential to be one of the best in the world but Lavezzi has Italian and European experience and we’ve all seen how long some south Americans take to adapt to the Italian game. To be honest I’d be estatic if we get either of them 🙂
A triangle on the transfer market and everything here may revolve around Lucas Moura, the gem of Sao Paulo whom Inter have been laying their eyes on in such a long time. According to Sky, the real alternative to Ezequiel Lavezzi would be the Brazilian. However, Lucas’ arrival would also be linked to a current Inter player: Wesley Sneijder. To many, Wesley Sneijder is the only Inter player that his transfer would give the team a good sum of cash to reinvest in the transfer market.
1st purchase of the Stramaccioni era should prove to be a very good one with more to follow
Today is an important day for Inter which have taken its first step in the right way. Fredy Guarin has been signed to a permanent contract and his agent, Marcelo Ferreyra has confirmed the transfer:
“I do not want to say the cost of this whole operation but I can assure you that Fredy is very, very happy for this opportunity to continue playing at Inter and he is also very grateful for Porto. Two years ago there were already contacts made with Inter. This year he had several different physical problems but had the opportunity to go to Italy and played for the final part of the season at Inter. He is very grateful that Porto have allowed this transfer. This deal is best for all parties.”
