Conte to have Inter summit on Monday

Antonio Conte is expected to meet with the Inter hierarchy on Monday to discuss the summer transfer campaign.

The Coach has been unhappy with the speed at which the club is moving on the market, and said as much yesterday.

“There’s no point denying the fact we’re having difficulties,” Conte said yesterday.

“There is still a pretty big problem in players coming in and going out, but primarily those who are meant to leave.

“If you ask me to be honest, I’ll say we are quite a lot behind schedule in various areas. We need to get a move on. We’ve been very clear in preparing a plan for players coming in and going out, but we’re behind schedule, particularly because nobody has really left at all.

“We’ve got to speed things up a lot now and realise there’s much to do in something of an uphill struggle.”

Now Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that there will be a meeting in Nanjing on Monday between Conte, President Steven Zhang, general manager Beppe Marotta and sporting director Piero Ausilio.

The men will discuss the transfer market, not least the expected sales of Radja Nainggolan and Mauro Icardi, as well as the potential arrival of Romelu Lukaku.

Following the meeting there will be a dinner with owner Jindong Zhang.
