Esposito is contracted to Inter until 2022, but negotiations for a new deal are proving difficult, alerting the likes of Atalanta and Fiorentina.

His reported demands of at least €1m a season may seem excessive, but the Nerazzurri will be wary of letting their most promising youth product in years flourish elsewhere.

A divine turning point

One crisp April afternoon in 2001, Brescia teammates Andrea Pirlo and Roberto Baggio combined to create a magical goal. Martin Mork recalls a key moment in the Divine Ponytail's career.

On April 1, 2001, with four minutes left on the clock, Andrea Pirlo collects the ball in the centre circle of the Stadio Delle Alpi in Turin after some frantic arcade football. Dancing with it for a few moments, he gives it peace with a gentle touch, lets it wobble on the potted grass, unmarked and in space, before looking up to see Roberto Baggio pointing in the direction he would like to have it played. The No 10 starts his run from the trequarti, in behind the opponent’s defence as Pirlo unleashes the drone towards the set target.
