Inter Keep €40 Million Rated Rebic As Alternative To Lukaku & Dzeko

Inter are continuing to monitor Eintracht Frankfurt’s Ante Rebic as an alternative to Romelu Lukaku and Edin Dzeko, according to Tuttosport.

The Nerazzurri are still working on a deal for Lukaku but talks with Manchester United are proving difficult.

Dzeko appears easier to sign because Roma’s bargaining position is weak, but no breakthrough has been made yet.

Rebic would cost €40 million but Inter remain keen on the Croatian international, who could provide Antonio Conte with versatility up front.

Roma are expected to fold eventually in their talks for Dzeko, considering the Bosnian has already entered the final year of his contract.

The Giallorossi would risk losing the 33-year-old for free next summer if they kept him, and doing so could also cause unrest in the dressing room given Dzeko wants to leave.

Inter are offering €12 million but that remains €8 million short of Roma’s asking price, which Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio do not intend to meet.

Inter Will Be A More ‘Vertical’ & ‘Intense’ Team Under Conte

Inter’s preseason opener against Lugano on Sunday showcased the style of play Antonio Conte will implement this season, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Stefano Sensi and Marcelo Brozovic scored the goals in a 2-1 win, getting the Nerazzurri off to a positive start before next week’s prestige friendlies in Asia.

Conte’s Inter will play less possession football than Luciano Spalletti’s side and are also expected to add more intensity to their game.

“Inter’s prolonged spells of possession in an attempt to open up their opponents will be replaced by a desire to immediately go forward,” Gazzetta explained.

“The midfield three are not in line with one another when they have the ball, with Marcelo Brozovic the deepest man and Stefano Sensi looking to give him a vertical option.”

Inter’s wing-backs will stay high and very wide under Conte, as Ivan Perisic and Antonio Candreva demonstrated against Lugano.

Perisic went to the by-line and crossed on several occasions, but he also took shots on goal and cut inside before passing to a close midfielder.

Candreva crossed to Perisic at the far post at one stage, showcasing Conte’s desire for his wing-backs to combine between one another.

Conte did not receive much defensive information against Lugano, with no sign of danger from the Swiss outfit until the final few minutes of the match.

Danilo D’Ambrosio, Stefan De Vrij and Milan Skriniar ran precious few risks, though, and will hope to repeat their positive showing against Manchester United at the weekend.

“De Vrij is the perfect man to play in the middle, Skriniar has more freedom to try and intercept the ball and D’Ambrosio is already following in Cesar Azpilicueta’s footsteps as a right-back playing in a back three,” Gazzetta added.

“They already seem to have a good understanding between one another, and Diego Godin has still yet to arrive…”

Inter will play Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain after their clash with United and Conte will hope to see gradual improvements in each match.

Inter Boss Conte Will Try Out Perisic & Lazaro Together During Asian Tour

Antonio Conte will explore the possibility of playing Ivan Perisic and Valentino Lazaro together during Inter’s Asian tour, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Both players featured in Sunday’s 2-1 victory against Lugano but at no stage were they on the pitch simultaneously.

Perisic and Lazaro demonstrated their qualities going forward but it remains to be seen whether Inter would have enough balance against tougher opposition.

“Conte will need to find out whether they can be effective together out of possession,” the paper reported this morning.

“If he played both at the same time Inter would have two wing-backs capable of driving at their opponents, but you need to have cover at the back as well.”

Inter will face Manchester United in Singapore on Saturday, before the Nerazzurri move to Nanjing ahead of a match with Juventus.

Paris Saint-Germain will provide their final opposition on tour before Conte’s side play Tottenham and Valencia on their return to Europe.

Inter Boss Conte Leaves Set Piece Instructions In Lugano Dressing Room

Antonio Conte left a sheet of paper detailing Inter’s set piece routines in their dressing room on Sunday, Gazzetta dello Sport reported this morning.

The Nerazzurri beat Lugano 2-1 at the Stadio Cornaredo, with goals from Marcelo Brozovic and new signing Stefano Sensi.

Inter are flying to Singapore today to begin their preseason tour of Asia, but Conte left some clues behind as to how the team is working from dead-ball situations.

“Conte’s plans for attacking corners and free-kicks were still stuck to the dressing room door after everyone had left,” Gazzetta explained.

“His instructions for Inter’s players were: two men standing over the ball, two waiting outside the area for a rebound and five in the box.

“Perisic takes all corners from the left, Brozovic takes them from the right and Esposito is the second man over the ball on both sides. Sensi is always on the edge of the box.”

Inter hope their aerial prowess in the box can be strengthened even further by the arrivals of Romelu Lukaku and Edin Dzeko.

Diego Godin and Matias Vecino will both arrive during the Nerazzurri’s Asian tour, providing Conte with further ammunition at set pieces.

Mauro Icardi Did Not See Inter Teammates At Training This Morning

Mauro Icardi was kept apart from his Inter teammates this morning as the striker completed a 90-minute individual session, according to Sky Sport.

Maurito arrived at Appiano Gentile at 09:25 local time and left at 11:02, before the first team arrived to prepare for their flight to Singapore.

Beppe Marotta, Antonio Conte and Stefan De Vrij – who arrived shortly before 11am – were the only three present as the striker was put through his paces alone.

Icardi will not take part in Inter’s Asian tour but Radja Nainggolan and new signing Nicolò Barella have both been included in Conte’s squad.

Inter have put their former captain on the market this summer but there have been no fresh developments so far this week.

Juventus have too many forwards on their books at the moment to consider moving for Icardi, while the forward himself is reluctant to accept a move to Napoli.

“Inter and Icardi are growing ever more distant and not just because of the 10,000km distance between Milan and Singapore,” the TV station concluded.

Nainggolan & Barella Included In Conte’s Inter Squad For Asian Tour

Radja Nainggolan and Nicolò Barella have both been included in Antonio Conte’s Inter squad for their summer tour in Asia.

The Ninja has earned himself a second chance under Conte after being excluded from tactical work in Lugano, while Barella has obtained a work permit in time to fly to Singapore.

Matteo Politano has been named in the squad as well despite picking up a thigh strain last week, suggesting he will recover in time to play some part.

Diego Godin, Matias Vecino and George Puscas will not fly today but all three will join up with their teammates in Asia.

Inter’s full squad list for their fixtures against Manchester United, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain is as follows:

Goalkeepers – Berni, Handanovic, Padelli

Defenders – Bastoni, D’Ambrosio, Dalbert, De Vrij, Ranocchia, Skriniar, Ntube, Pirola

Midfielders – Agoumé, Barella, Borja Valero, Brozovic, Candreva, Gagliardini, Joao Mario, Lazaro, Nainggolan, Perisic, Sensi

Inter To Make New ‘€67 Million Offer’ For Manchester United’s Lukaku This Week

Inter will make Manchester United a new offer worth €67 million plus bonuses for Romelu Lukaku this week, according to Sky Sports News.

The Nerazzurri want payment to be split across two or three years because that would make it easier to meet the Red Devils’ asking price.

Piero Ausilio met United officials for talks last week and was told Inter would have to cough up more than the £79 million they paid to sign Lukaku in 2017.

“Inter’s new offer is an improvement on their initial two-year loan request with installments of £9m, £27m and £27m to be paid in consecutive years,” Paul Gilmour reported.

“Sky has been told officials at the Italian club are mindful the English transfer deadline is just over three weeks away and believe United will want time to sign a replacement.”

Inter will play United in Singapore on Saturday and it is unlikely Lukaku will have completed a move before then.

The Belgian is continuing preparation with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side following last weekend’s victory against Perth.

Inter Striker Icardi Begins Personalised Training Program At Appiano Gentile

Mauro Icardi began a personalised training regime at Appiano Gentile this morning as Inter flew out to Singapore, according to Sky Sport.

The striker will not take part in the Nerazzurri’s Asian tour because the club have decided they will sell him this summer.

Icardi was excluded from all tactical exercises in Switzerland last week and left the day before Inter beat Lugano in Sunday’s friendly.

Antonio Conte is showing no sign of having second thoughts about Maurito, who has one fitness coach to work with this week, and will hope Inter can find a buyer for him soon.

Inter will play Manchester United in Singapore on Saturday before travelling to Suning’s headquarters in Nanjing, where they are due to face Juventus.

Conte’s side will then play Paris Saint-Germain in Macau for the International Super Cup, before returning to Europe on 28 July.

Icardi will miss all of these matches and is highly unlikely to feature in the games against Tottenham and Valencia in August either.

Antonio Conte will begin working with four more first-team players during Inter’s upcoming tour in Asia, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Nicolò Barella, Matias Vecino and Alessandro Bastoni will all fly with the Nerazzurri’s squad to Singapore today, while Diego Godin will join them after Saturday’s match against Manchester United.

Kwadwo Asamoah and Lautaro Martinez will not return from their summer holidays in time but they will await their teammates when Inter return on 28 July.

Conte will again include Sebastiano Esposito, Lucien Agoume, Edoardo Vergani and Facundo Colidio in his Asian squad to make up the numbers.

Inter will arrive in Singapore at 10:00 local time tomorrow before playing United in the International Champions Cup on Saturday (13:30 CET).

The first-team squad will then travel to Suning’s headquarters in Nanjing for a clash with Juventus, before completing their trio of prestige friendlies against Paris Saint-Germain in Macau.

Tottenham and Valencia will provide their final preseason opposition before Serie A begins on 24 August.
