Atletico Madrid (losing Griezmann and probably Costa) to go after Icardi. Replacement? Three options: Dzeko, Lukaku and Zapata
Antonio Conte, Gabriele Oriali and a shopping campaign that will change the face of Inter. The club of Suning is still working on achieving Champions League football for next season but the work for 2019-2020 has started a long time ago.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, there will be changes in the attack which will probably lose Mauro Icardi this summer. Mauro is now being linked to Atletico Madrid which yesterday announced that Griezmann will leave the club (Diego Costa will probably do the same as well).
And so who will replace the former Inter captain? Dzeko, Lukaku, Zapata are three options.
The first is clearly the favorite because there is the approval of Conte. The Bosnian is leaving is at end credits with Roma and Inter consider this option to be affordable. It is true that Roma are asking €20M but Inter would like to make an offer in the range of €10M-€12M.
Behind Dzeko, there is Lukaku, a profile that convinces everyone and there is no need to explain why. But he has very high valuation, no less than €60M and Manchester United are not willing to give Inter any discount in this regard. Inter can count on his desire to experience Serie A but competition from PSG must be taken into consideration. Keep in mind that Inter want to save a large part of its budget for a big signing in the midfield.
Last but not least is Zapata, an idea that Ausilio has had in the past few weeks. The Colombian striker is valued at €40M.
