Inter faced a tough situation during the summer transfer window, but have emerged looking strong and well set-up for the future despite major departures.

This is the verdict of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who score the Nerazzurri’s transfer window at 7.5/10, crediting the club for bringing in a large cash injection from sales needed to meet financial targets while also reinforcing the squad with shrewd deals.

The Nerazzurri’s financial needs at the beginning of the summer were well known, but the losses of head coach Antonio Conte and key players Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku along with steps taken to reduce the wage bill still came as a sobering shock to many supporters.

The first priority for the club hierarchy was to meet strict financial objectives, and this was done, but the result was the loss of three key figures from last year’s Scudetto triumph, even before considering Christian Eriksen’s enforced absence for health reasons.

However, the club also took major steps to recover from these blows, recruiting highly-rated coach Simone Inzaghi from Lazio and making a number of signings who have so far integrated well into the team.

“[New signings] Calhanoglu, Dzeko, Correa and Dumfries showed themselves at their best,” the Gazzeta writes, “and those €115 million [net profit in the market] in cash give oxygen to a club looking to regain managerial self-sufficiency.”

They describe the window as “An authentic technical miracle, with the hope that Inter will soon have the strength to return to planning, a prerequisite for thinking big and designing an ambitious future.”
