Moratti: 'I was wrong to doubt Lukaku'

Former Inter President Massimo Moratti admits he was ‘wrong’ to doubt Romelu Lukaku, while the Serie A club has ‘everything it takes to bring Leo Messi’ to Italy.

The €74m spent to sign Lukaku from Manchester United had seemed like a huge gamble, especially replacing Mauro Icardi, but he found the net 31 times in 49 competitive games, preparing for the Europa League semi-final against Shakhtar Donetsk.

“I got it wrong on Lukaku,” confessed Moratti to the Quotidiano Sportivo newspaper.

Inter challenge Roma for Smalling

Inter are ready to make their own offer to Manchester United for Chris Smalling, as Roma are forced to stall by the takeover, but the asking price is over €20m.

The defender spent this season on loan at the Stadio Olimpico, with the Giallorossi paying a substantial percentage of his salary.

He has made it clear that he wants to continue his experience in Italy and even remained in the Peninsula for his summer vacation.

Roma had seen their €15m offer rejected, as Manchester United are holding out for at least €20m.

Inter's Europa show of strength

Antonio Conte’s Inter vision is taking shape in the new format and, if they can just learn to kill off games that they dominate, Richard Hall believes they are Europa League favourites.

To say Inter dominated a good Bayer Leverkusen, is no exaggeration. Antonio Conte’s men booked their place in the Europa League semi-finals with a display that would send a message to the remaining teams in the competition. The game was not perfect, but it was one of the best examples they have produced of what the coach is trying to achieve. The on-field partnerships, the work rate and the technical side of the game are allowing the Nerazzurri to finish the season in a domineering manner and potentially with a trophy.

Man Utd lose Sancho, turn to Chiesa

After Borussia Dortmund announced Jadon Sancho is staying, Manchester United turn to other targets, including Federico Chiesa and Douglas Costa.

Sancho was their number one target, but this afternoon Dortmund director Michael Zorc made his position very clear.

“We plan on having Sancho in our team this season, the decision is final. I think that answers all our questions. Last summer we adjusted Jadon’s salary to match the development of his performances. So, in context, we had already extended his contract until 2023 back then.”

Brehme: 'Inter Europa League favourites'

Andreas Brehme claims Inter are ‘without doubt the Europa League favourites, followed by Bayer Leverkusen, but both are stronger than Manchester United.’

Brehme spent four years at Inter from 1988-92 and was also assistant manager under Giovanni Trapattoni once he retired.

He was therefore asked to give his views ahead of tomorrow’s Europa League quarter-final between Inter and Bayer Leverkusen.

“Without doubt, Inter are the favourites to win the Europa League,” Brehme told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

Roma working to purchase Smalling

Roma agreed a takeover and one of the first steps for new owner Dan Friedkin will reportedly be to bring Chris Smalling back from Manchester United.

The defender had been on loan, but the two clubs were unable to agree on a permanent fee or even an extension to the temporary stay for the Europa League campaign.

Since that decision was made, the club has changed over to a new patron, with Texan billionaire Friedkin agreeing to purchase Roma from James Pallotta.

According to multiple Italian reports, the first name on the agenda is Smalling.

Alexis: 'At Inter to win something'

Alexis Sanchez explains why he is ‘very, very happy’ to have left Manchester United to join Inter on a permanent basis. ‘I am hungry to win something.’

The Chile international will go down as one of the worst transfers in Manchester United’s history, having been purchased from Arsenal for €34m in January 2018 and given a huge salary.

Dirty Inter can go all the way

The Nerazzurri advance to the quarter-finals after a hard-fought win over Getafe and Vilizar Yakimov thinks they have what it takes to go all the way in the Europa League.

It wasn’t pretty and it definitely wasn’t easy, but Inter finally reached the last eight of a European competition for the first time since 2010-11. Antonio Conte was right to predict that the Nerazzurri would be in for a “dirty game against a tough opponent” and this is exactly what their Round of 16 clash with Getafe proved to be.
