Legendary former AC Milan coach Fabio Capello feels that Inter could reinforce their squad with signings, but that they already have enough as it is.
Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview in today’s print edition, the former coach gave the view that the Nerazzurri could well sign Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez, but that they remain extremely formidable if they don’t.
The January transfer window is now open, and the Nerazzurri are beginning to consider whether or not they want to make signings to improve their team.
Nandez is one of the key targets, having already been one of the main considerations during the summer before they were unable to agree on a deal for him with Cagliari.
It remains to be seen whether Inter ultimately decide to resume their pursuit for the Uruguayan, but Capello does not believe that doing so is necessary given what they already have.
“Adding a player like that could keep them competitive,” he stated, “but the Nerazzurri are already the strongest team in the league, which I have said since the beginning of the season.”
He went on that “They have kept the same defense and the same midfield, plus Calhanoglu.”
“Furthermore, Inzaghi has transmitted his ideas well and the team are working well under him,” the former coach added. “That’s what a coach must be able to do.”
Capello also stated about recent remarks by Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku that he regrets leaving Inter that “I don’t like it when players say things like this.”
