Inter will look to have the South American internationals in their squad back from the international break as soon as possible and available to face Lazio next Saturday.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri will pay €100,000 to charter a flight that will see the players arrive directly in Rome as soon as is possible after their international duty is wrapped up.
As with the September international break, South American teams are playing three World Cup qualifiers rather than two to make up for the fixtures missed in the spring due to COVID.
Once again this could potentially mean the absences of South American internationals from the first games back in Serie A and other European leagues, though the Nerazzurri hope to mitigate this by getting the players back as soon as possible.
After a stopover in Madrid the five South Americans in Simone Inzaghi’s team will fly directly to Rome where they will convene with the rest of the squad.
Meanwhile, Lautaro Martinez is expected to start for Argentina against Uruguay tonight, and his physical condition will be monitored, having missed the Albiceleste’s previous match against Paraguay through muscle fatigue.
