It has been another hit and miss season for the 2010 Champions League winners and the pressure has been intense for Inter manager, Walter Mazzarri.
The former Napoli coach hasn’t managed to bring Inter back to former glories this season and has been criticized for failing to integrate promising younger players such as, Mauro Icardi and Mateo Kovačić – particularly the latter – into first team proceedings on a regular basis.
Inter have undergone a takeover this season and are now backed by Indonesian businessmen Eric Thohir, who has vowed to give Inter a newfound financial muscle which I Nerazzurri have already flexed when they bought Brazilian midfielder Hernanes from Lazio in January.
There is little doubt there will be a lot of transfer activity on the blue side of Milan again this summer with the club expected to have a mass overhaul of the current squad, which have come up short yet again this season.
Inter’s general director, Marco Fassone, has supported this idea and has vowed that the club will look for fresh blood in the close season.
Speaking to reporters, Fassone said, “We want to bring us back into balance in the next two or three years, a lot will depend on access to the Champions League which weighs heavily on the turnover of a club”. He continued, “On the market there have been many names, but I think that two or three new players will be included in the current squad “.
The Champions League is out of reach this season, but the 18-time Serie A winners are still in contention for a Europa League place. They visit Parma on Saturday afternoon, as they look to improve on their current form, which is just 1 win in 5 games.
