Inter Milan finished as runners-up in Serie A last season behind city rivals AC Milan. The Nerazzurri will be disappointed with the outcome of last season as they were the stronger squad on paper. However, the Rossoneri out-performed their city rivals and won the Scudetto.
The Nerazzurri have brought Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Romelu Lukaku to the club in an attempt to strengthen the squad and push for the league title. Andre Onana has also joined the club on a free transfer from Ajax to provide cover for Samir Handanovic. However, the club has lost out on key players such as Ivan Perisic during the summer as well.
The club is not finished in the transfer market yet and the manager believes that a couple of signings could still be on the cards. Inter Milan has not started the pre-season well and has struggled to keep clean sheets in the friendlies.
Inter Milan finished the pre-season with a defeat to Villarreal
The Nerazzurri have failed to keep a clean sheet in either of their pre-season friendlies ahead of this season. The team underperformed and lost to Lens and Villarreal in the pre-season. Whereas the games against AS Monaco and Lyon ended in a draw.
Inter Milan has been identified as a title contender for the Scudetto this season. However, the pre-season has shown that the team is playing disjointed football and is struggling to get the chemistry right.
However, the pre-season results have not discouraged the manager, Simeone Inzaghi. The Italian tactician believes that the team will perform to its quality once the competitive leg begins. Inzaghi does not believe that the pre-season indicates the true quality of the players at the club and that the team will come to reflect their real quality in the league games.
The fans will hope that the club can fulfill the expectations and keep the trust of the manager, Simeone Inzaghi. Inter Milan have started the campaign well with a league win against Lecce, however, tougher tests are yet to come!!
