Beppe Marotta has been the CEO of Inter since December 2018 and has managed to transform the club in that time, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Turin based newspaper Tuttosport.
The report details how the 62-year-old Italian executive brought coach Antonio Conte to Milan at the start of last summer, the most important summer transfer Inter had. Marotta then secured the two most expensive signings in Inter history, paying €65 million plus €13 million in bonuses for former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku and paying €45 million plus bonuses for former Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella. Last month, Marotta then secured Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen’s signature, a player wanted by top clubs around Europe.
One of the most important things Marotta has done at Inter was to overhaul the squad, the report continues. The Italian executive managed to ship out Argentine striker Mauro Icardi, Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan and Croatian forward Ivan Perisic. Only a few months later, Italian coach Luciano Spalletti was also dismissed, despite two seasons of good results.
