Inter will be asking CEO Beppe Marotta to conduct another transfer market session of efficiency and cleverness to keep the team strong while respecting financial objectives this summer.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the team will be working within financial constraints yet again and that they could need a “miracle” from their CEO.
Marotta had to guide the Nerazzurri through a period of major upheaval last summer, as Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku were sold for massive fees, whilst Antonio Conte departed at the start of the summer and Christian Eriksen was also lost due to health issues.
The CEO did well to go about replacing the influence of all of these figures, getting the team back to a place where they are once again fighting for the Serie A title and the Coppa Italia having also reached the round of sixteen of the Champions League.
Things are not likely to be quite as tumultuous this summer as they were last summer, but the fact remains that there are financial objectives to be met and so a big name player will in all likelihood depart.
Moreover, replacing any players sold and strengthening the team in general will have to be done on a tight budget.
Marotta has plenty of ideas on how to keep the level of the squad high even with the budgetary restrictions that he faces, but in the view of Tuttosport it could well take a “miracle” from the experienced executive.
