Inter Among Serie A Clubs Organizing To Bring South American Players Back ASAP, Italian Media Report

Inter are among the Serie A clubs looking to organize a charter to bring players on international duty with South American teams back to Italy as soon as possible after their international fixtures are wrapped up.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri and other clubs are anxious about the possibility of players not being able to return from the international break in time to be available for the matchweek immediately after the break.

Inter have four players currently on international duty in South America, in the form of Uruguayan Matias Vecino, Chilean Arturo Vidal, and Argentines Lautaro Martinez and Joaquin Correa.

The possibility that the quartet could miss out on the first Serie A game back against Sampdoria looms given that all four are set to feature in CONMEBOL qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup less than 72 hours before the fixture against Sampdoria kicks off.

The addition of an extra qualifier in the schedule to make up for one missed out on in the spring due to COVID precautions is the source of this predicament.

Inter are not the only club to face this issue, and a number of Serie A sides are looking to organize to have every player currently on international duty, particularly those with South American national sides, back in time to participate in the subsequent Serie A action.
