Inter Milan Last Season
Inter Milan won the Serie A last season, winning their 19th Italian championship or Scudetto. Inter Milan became champions of the Serie A in Match Day 34, after Atalanta drew at home to Sassuolo.
With Atalanta’s draw, which came after Inter defeated Crotone away, the Nerazzurri became champions mathematically as it was impossible for anyone to reach them.
Romelu Lukaku and the others were 13 points ahead of Atalanta in second place and AC Milan in third, with only four matches left to play where a maximum of 12 points could be won.
Winning the Serie A meant that the Nerazzurri ended an 11 year Scudetto drought. The last time Inter Milan won the Serie A was in 2010, that is until last season when they managed to end their drought.
This was possible thanks to player signed in the transfer market such as Romelu Lukaku, Achraf Hakimi, Ashley Young, Christian Eriksen, Romelu Lukaku, and Alexis Sanchez.
Despite being hit by the financial crisis and having difficulty paying salaries last season, Inter remain active in the transfer market.
Inter will appear with a different face in the 2021/202 season. Antonio Conte is no longer the coach as Inter have appointed Simone Inzaghi as Conte’s replacement.
Inzaghi will inherit most of Conte’s squad. However, Inzaghi has also been forced to make somewhat of an overhaul. What has Inter Milan’s transfer activity been like in the summer of 2021/2022 so far?
Below is a summary of all players that have left and arrived:
Inter Milan’s Confirmed Transfers 2021/2022
First in was Zinho Vanheusden who was bought by Inter in 2015. Then, he was loaned to Standard Liege. In July 2019, Vanheusden was released permanently to Liege for €11 million.
And, now Inter re-signed him for €16 million euros before sending him out on loan to Genoa. Matteo Darmian’s signing was made permanent this summer having spent last season on loan at Inter, and he was bought permanently from Parma for €2.5 million
Darmian seems to be a player that suits Simone Inzaghi’s tactics very well. He can play in a 3-5-2 formation.
Thirdly, Hakan Calhanoglu was brought in on a free transfer following Christian Eriksen’s medical emergency during Euro 2020.
Inter may be able to use the services of Christian Eriksen at some point this season although it would at the earliest be in January.
Calhanoglu not only came as a free transfer, but also from city rivals AC Milan.
Fourthly, Romelu Lukaku was unfortunately sold. The Belgian was Inter’s main man and number 9 and was sold for a Serie A transfer record of €115 million.
Before then Alex Cordaz was signed. The Cordaz transfer may seem odd. However, Inter really needed Cordaz because he can act as a third goalkeeper but is useful as a homegrown player, given he came up the ranks at the club.
After that, there is of course Achraf Hakimi who only played one season at Inter. After an impressive 2020/2021 season, Hakimi had to leave. Hakimi was released to PSG after Inter accepted an offer of €60-70 million including add-ons.
Matteo Politano did very well at Napoli last season, on loan. Starting from the 2021/202 season, Politano officially belongs to Napoli after being bought for €19 million euros.
Then, Antonio Candreva who spent last season on loan at Sampdoria. However, now he is a Sampdoria player after being redeemed for €2.5 million.
Next it is Rigoberto Rivas. It is difficult for Rivas to get minutes at Inter so he was sold. The Honduran international striker chose to go to Serie B outfit Reggina where he spent the last couple of seasons, being bought for €500,000.
Next is Daniele Padelli who the club decided not to renew his contract which expired on June 30th. Padelli then moved to Udinese.
Then, there is Joao Mario who has been nothing but a big loss for Inter Milan financially. Due to a clause signed with Sporting preventing him to join another Portuguese club without a €30 million penalty fee being paid, the Nerazzurri decided to release him on a free transfer before he joined Benfica. Inter did not have much choice in the case of the transfer of the Portuguese player.
Then Ashley Young returned to England after a year and a half playing at Inter. Young joined Inter from Manchester United and spent 18 months at the club before returning home.
The next is the Serie A Legend, Radja Nainggolan who is not in Inter and Inzaghi’s plans. The player was released on a free transfer and he returned back to Belgium.
This last weekend Inter signed legendary Bosnian international striker Edin Dzeko for free from Roma but will have to pay the Giallorossi €1.5 million should the Nerazzurri secure Champions League football.
PSV Eindhoven’s Dutch international wingback Denzel Dumfries was also signed for around €15 million including add-ons allowing Inter to finally replace Achraf Hakimi.
