The sensational wrong goal against Sassuolo and the decisive smooth in the penalty area against Bologna convinced Inter: Roberto Gagliardini is unlikely to be part of the squad next year. Too heavy mistakes that highlight, on the part of the former Atalanta, the need to take a step back. A similar fate will fall to Borja Valero, contract expiring and out of the project for the coming year. The farewell package in midfield, however, may not end there.
CHOICE MADE – Inter, in fact, has decided to put Matias Vecino on the transferable list. Twenty-four seasonal appearances, but only 2 minutes played since the post-lockdown recovery due to a meniscus injury. The hero of Rome, who in May 2018 gave the Inter players the return to the Champions League – scoring on his debut – is destined to leave Milan after three seasons. Landed in Appiano in 2017, it is valued by Marotta between 22 and 25 million euros: the Uruguayan, on the balance sheet, will be amortized for 15.7 million and at least 9.4 million will be needed to avoid recording a loss. At the moment, no offers have arrived from the parts of Porta Nuova: in the past, Valencia and Everton thought about it, without launching the decisive attack. Now Vecino could become a convenient exchange pawn for Conte’s new midfield. Which, meanwhile, has made its choice.
