Spalletti Praises Inter For Their Players In The National Team As The Nerazzurri Zero In On EPL Defender

Written By Onyeka Daniel

Today, there was a meeting between Inter Milan coach, Simone Inzaghi and the new management of the club, Oaktree Capital and it looks like that meeting may have an outcome already as the Nerazzurri are reportedly ready to make an offer to Manchester United to sign right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

More Details

According to a report from TuttoMercato, the Red Devils would be willing to sell the 26-year-old for a fee of around €12 million. This summer, Inter may be looking to make a signing for their right flank. The reason for this is that Denzel Dumfries could be on his way out. At the moment, Dumfries’s contract with Inter runs until the end of next June.

Therefore, if the Dutchman doesn’t sign an extension, then he could leave on a free transfer at the end of next season.Inter have no intention of seeing that happen, having already lost Milan Skriniar in similar situation, hence, the Nerazzurri’s plan is clear.

They want to either extend Dumfries’s deal, or else sell him this summer.Aston Villa are reportedly keen on Dumfries’s signature. And Manchester United have been linked with the 28-year-old as well. According to TMW, moreover, Inter could end up signing a player from United to replace Dumfries.

The report has it that the former Crystal Palace defender Wan-Bissaka is a player who the Nerazzurri see as having an ideal profile to replace Dumfries. The 26-year-old has largely only ever played on the right of a back four in his career.However, Inter believe that Wan-Bissaka has the right traits to make the switch to a wingback role seamlessly.

TMW report that Wan-Bissaka is likely to leave Old Trafford this summer. The Englishman’s contract runs out at the end of next June. And United will certainly listen to offers. €12 million would be sufficient to allow United to avoid taking a capital loss on Wan-Bissaka.

Therefore, that would be the benchmark for any bids for the 26-year-old. Inter are also reportedly ready to offer Wan-Bissaka a three-year contract containing the option for an additional season. The report further added that the Nerazzurri would offer the Englishman wages of around €2.7 million net per season.

They’re also said to be interested in want away Napoli captain, Giovanni Di Lorenzo for the same position, but Wan-Bissaka will make a better option because he’s 4 years younger than the Italian defender and the Partenopei wouldn’t want to sell the player to a direct rival.

Meanwhile…

Luciano Spalletti confirms Scudetto-winners Inter will be ‘fundamental’ to providing a core of players for Italy at EURO 2024. ‘Thank goodness someone still believes in Italian talent.’ The coach was speaking to reporters at the European Globe Soccer Awards this evening and inevitably looked ahead to the tournament in Germany this summer.

He named his 30-man preliminary squad for the competition, which will be cut down to 26 for the tournament itself. They include six Inter players, Francesco Acerbi, Nicolò Barella, Alessandro Bastoni, Matteo Darmian, Federico Dimarco and Davide Frattesi.

“Having six players from the same club is a big deal for us, because it is not like it used to be when the Nazionale was formed of groups from Juventus, Inter, Milan or at most Roma,” said Spalletti. “Now there are players from Genoa, Bologna and all sorts.

“So to have players who can glance over at each other and feel ‘we can trust ourselves because we showed it with our victory in Serie A,’ that is an advantage.” He said. There used to be the ‘Juventus bloc’ in the Nazionale for the 1982 World Cup, but that has become increasingly difficult to replicate in recent years when there are so few Italians in the starting XI.

“Thank goodness someone still believes in Italian talent, because there is a lot of it out there and it ought to be given more room to flourish,” added Spalletti.” The Inter bloc has its own mentality and way of staying on the field that is unique to them. They are just as strong as the Juve individuals were.

But clearly they need to carry on that sense of friendship and unity to the rest of the team. The Azzurri will play Turkey on June 4 and Bosnia-Herzegovina on June 9 in warm-up friendly matches to get them ready for EURO 2024.Their tournament begins against Albania on June 15, Spain on June 20 and Croatia on June 24.
