Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has reaffirmed the club’s commitment to going into next season with a strong and competitive squad and to do so early on in the summer transfer window.

Speaking to Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, Marotta emphasized that the Nerazzurri’s goal is to operate in the summer transfer market in such a way that they can still compete on all fronts next season.

Inter have another complicated summer ahead of them, with multiple departures and signings expected, and Marotta and his fellow directors will have a big task on their hands strengthening the team when all the dust settles.

Between the financial need to bring in a net profit, likely meaning a big name sale, and the departure of several players as part of the effort to trim the wage bill, Inter will certainly lose a number of players.

On the other hand, however, Marotta and his colleagues are already working quickly on a number of signings to strengthen the squad in all areas, ranging from long-term targets to unexpected free transfer opportunities.

Moreover, the CEO outlined the club’s ambition to not waste time in getting things done, so that there is certainty and security in their preseason preparations.

“We’re working to put together the kind of competitive squad that’s worthy of Inter,” the CEO said.

“Myself, Ausilio, and Baccin want to build the team by the end of June because we want to make the best possible squad available to Inzaghi,” he added, “while always keeping in mind that we must respect the importance of financial sustainability.”
