Inter captain Samir Handanovic has reiterated the message that the team hope to keep all of their main players together for the season and not make any big sales in the last weeks of the summer.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia ahead of this evening’s Serie A opener against Lecce, the captain was clear in his view that he hopes to see the team kept together so that they can be as competitive as possible over the upcoming season.
Inter are heading into the final weeks of the transfer window, as well as the start of the season, with something of a cloud of uncertainty over them regarding the possibility of selling big name players like Milan Skriniar or Denzel Dumfries.
However, reports have suggested that within the club the will is strongly towards keeping hold of these players, and yesterday evening coach Simone Inzaghi stressed exactly this in a press conference.
Handanovic added his voice, stating that “It’s essential that the group be kept together and remain intact. We all know each other well and there’s cohesion between us.”
“We need one more defender for the squad to be complete numerically, but the club will take care of that,” he added.
The captain stated that “Those who play for Inter must always aspire to win titles, history shows us that and it’s not just my view. We’re here to do just that, and then in the end there’s only one winner.”
“You have to get to work, and you have to be ready to sacrifice to do better,” he added.
