Inter’s current run of poor form has now started to concern manager Luciano Spalletti according to Corriere dello Sport. He is starting to see the ghosts of Inter’s pasts coming back to haunt him.
Countless number of teams that have punched above their weight and exceeded in the early part of the season only to be found out and then see a dramatic slump of form. Inter failed to score for the fourth time in five games last night and their first attempt on goal did not come until the 14th minute of the second half.
It is believed that the January transfer window could bring in some much needed options to Spalletti but the message from the leaders at the club remains the same; Inter won’t buy unless someone who guarantees us a big gain is sold. The two players that could in fact offer that are Brozovic and Joao Mario.
The likelihood is that Inter’s market will be one built on loan deals where possible. This will prove to be a stumbling block when trying to sign players like Javier Pastore from PSG; a player who is ideal for Inter’s current needs. PSG are less likely to want to accommodate a loan deal especially with their own Financial Fair Play commitments in mind.
