Several Inter first team players left on loan during the Summer transfer window and in this SempreInter.com feature, the progress of each player’s spell out on loan will be documented on a week-by-week basis.
Mauro Icardi – Paris Saint Germain: Icardi had a night to forget as PSG lost 2-1 to Dijon in Ligue 1. The 26-year-old failed to convert several chances he was gifted right in front of goal with not even one of the five shots he took hitting the target.
Icardi was back on the score sheet as he scored the French side’s only goal in their 1-0 win over Club Brugge in the Champions League group stage – a result which has secured them passage into the knockout stages with two games to go.
Total stats (all competitions): 9 appearances, 8 goals, 1 assist.
Ivan Perisic – Bayern Munich: Perisic was an unused substitute for Bayern’s 5-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt, a result which cost Niko Kovac his job.
Perisic came off the bench in Bayern Munich’s 2-0 win over Olympiacos in the Champions League and scored the second goal just 32 seconds after coming onto the pitch. This was the quickest goal scored by a substitute in the competition since April 2017.
Total stats (all competitions): 10 appearances, 3 goals, 2 assists.
Radja Nainggolan – Cagliari: Nainggolan played the entire match as Cagliari picked up a 2-0 win on the road against Atalanta. Whilst he did not score or assist either of the goals, he put in a solid shift in the defensive phase as he made four interceptions and won four defensive duels.
Total stats (all competitions): 9 appearances, 1 goal, 1 assist.
