Inter are assessing their options as they remain anxious over the possible health risks of travelling to the US as part of their pre-season tour due to COVID-19.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri could alter their plans with respect to the Florida Club, or simply cancel the engagement.

The Florida Cup has looked set to be a major part of the Nerazzurri’s pre-season plans, with the tournament on US soil against the likes of Arsenal, Everton, and Millionarios a way for the club to connect with American fans.

However, the club are seriously considering withdrawing from the event due to fears around the Delta variant of COVID-19.

The Nerazzurri will know all too well the serious problems associated with COVID for a football club, coming from the hard-hit Lombardy region of Italy, and even just last week Austrian winger Valentino Lazaro tested positive for the virus, emphasizing the continued risk.

At present it is thought that the club are considering leaving with a reduced delegation and cancelling commercial events to mitigate health risks, although remaining in Italy and withdrawing from the event entirely are not off the table.
