The Nerazzurri look set to open their wallet in January after a trying start to the season.

However, Inter's chief technical director Marco Branca has so far intimated that the club's No 1 priority is bringing in a centre-back to replace the injured Walter Samuel.

Thiago Motta hails teamwork

Thiago Motta was an emergency substitute against Seongnam and insists “when we all work together, we can achieve a great deal.”

Wesley Sneijder picked up a muscular problem in the opening minute of the 3-0 Club World Cup victory, so Thiago Motta had to come off the bench straight away.

“On a psychological level it was so important that Dejan Stankovic scored the opener after two minutes, especially as Sneijder hurt himself and I had to come on without a real warm-up,” said the midfielder.
