Management reassured Conte in dinner last night. There will be major market meeting with Suning in Nanjing on Monday
Antonio Conte was very clear yesterday in his press conference: no more delays, Inter need to urgently change its pace when it comes to the transfer market.
In this story, there is an impatient coach who is interested in not making a bad impression even though that we are only in July and these matches do not mean anything. Conte wants to put together a good show nonetheless on the pitch facing high level opponents in matches that will be seen around the world.
And then there’s a leadership, in the name of Giuseppe Marotta, who knows perfectly the character of his coach. And he also knows that the market is unpredictable. The Inter CEO is working closely with Suning who’s divided between the desire to make Inter great and do it quickly and also the reality which says that Inter have just left UEFA settlement agreement and it’s good to pay close attention that part as well.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Conte had dinner last night with management in Singapore. It was needed to lower tension after an agitated afternoon. The coach was again made aware of the difficulties for Lukaku, even more so without the sale of Icardi but ownership has confirmed its commitments. On Monday, there will be a transfer market meeting between everyone involved: we are talking about president Steven Zhang, CEO of sports Giuseppe Marotta, sporting director Piero Ausilio, coach Antonio Conte and Suning boss Zhang Jindong.
Time is running out. Inter not only need to buy new strikers but also need to thin out certain areas of the squad. Serie A is just one month away.
