Nainggolan and Perisic could return to Inter

Inter could welcome Radja Nainggolan and Ivan Perisic back from loan spells at Cagliari and Bayern Munich, but not Mauro Icardi after his PSG move.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Antonio Conte is not entirely averse to giving these players another go, having decided last summer that they did not fit into his tactical project.

With the arrival of Christian Eriksen in January, some adjustments have to be made, and he is ready to consider how they’d slot into that approach.

Napoli had a 2-0 lead from the first leg going into the Munich Olympiastadion and El Pibe de Oro was thoroughly enjoying himself when the 1985 song by Opus came over the loudspeakers.
