Chiellini: 'Inter and Napoli can't hide'

While Matthijs de Ligt, Merih Demiral, Gianluigi Buffon and Danilo have come in, only Joao Cancelo, Leonardo Spinazzola and Moise Kean have left.

Perisic raring to go for Bayern

Ivan Perisic says he is raring to go for Bayern Munich thanks to the ‘great preparation’ he received at Inter over the summer.

Perisic’s Inter career was effectively ended by Antonio Conte, who publicly discarded him as an option for his 3-5-2 formation.

Despite that, the winger had only praise for the Coach’s work ethic during his official unveiling as a Bayern player.

Martinez: Lukaku needed 'fresh air'

Belgium CT Roberto Martinez believes Inter fans will see a revitalised Romelu Lukaku as the striker ‘needed fresh air’.

The summer-long Lukaku saga ended last week as the Belgian finally left Manchester United to join Inter in a reported €75m deal.

The 26-year-old has made an instant impact, generating plenty of buzz on social media and scoring four goals on his debut.

“The link between Romelu and Manchester United had simply come to an end,” Martinez told Het Laaste Niewus.

Dybala still has much to give Juventus

Juventus need to think twice before letting a talent like Paulo Dybala leave, as Anthony Barbagallo insists La Joya can shine for Maurizio Sarri.

The recent sales of Italian starlet Moise Kean and Portugal international Joao Cancelo suggests that Juve is heading in entirely the wrong direction. Selling young talents and keeping aged players like Sami Khedira and Gonzalo Higuain means there is no future project in the works over at Turin. However, the bigger picture here is that the Bianconeri are slowly losing their identity.

Serie A placed on Jovic alert

Serie A clubs could be in for a late transfer scramble as Serbian reports claim Real Madrid are ready to loan out Luka Jovic.

Jovic only joined Madrid in June, arriving from Eintracht Frankfurt in a €60m deal, but he failed to score at all during preseason.

That has prompted several outlets in Serbia to claim the 21-year-old did not convince Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane and that he will be sent out on loan.

His availability could alert the likes of Inter and Roma, whose plans in the market hinge on Edin Dzeko.
