Inter’s decision to allow Martin Satriano to leave on loan in January and then bring in Felipe Caicedo from Genoa could be one that they regret.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who suggest that the club could be having regrets about their January transfer business based on Satriano’s form on loan with Brest.
Satriano had barely featured across the first half of the campaign despite having been included in the first team squad on the basis of his impressive performances in pre-season.
The 20-year-old was sent on loan to Brest for the rest of the season during the January window, with the clear priority being for him to receive regular playing time so that he can develop within the senior game.
Satriano’s time in Ligue 1 has already exceeded expectations, with the Uruguayan finding the back of the net three times in just a few appearances.
Meanwhile, Caicedo came in to shore up the attack in the short term, arriving on loan until the end of the season from Genoa, but so far the Ecuadorian has not made much of an impression.
Perhaps if the aim of the January business was to give the Nerazzurri a Plan B in attack who can make an instant impact in key matches during the run-in, Tuttosport suggests, the club would have been better off keeping Satriano.
