It was a remarkable summer transfer window for Inter as the club brought in ten players. Roberto Mancini has ripped apart last season’s disappointing squad to such a degree that the Inter team that lines up in the Milan derby could include only two players that played for this team last season. That is a lot of change but was it good change? Was this a good transfer window for Inter?
It’e been a busy 24 hours for Inter with lots of players coming and going. The last arrival of the summer appears to be Roma attacking midfielder Adem Ljajic. The Serbian looks set to swap the Stadio Olimpico for San Siro, according to Nerazzurri transfer chief Piero Ausilio
It is being reported that the 23-year-old Serbian will join the Nerazzurri on a season-long loan for €2 million with an option for his new club to purchase for an additional €9m in 2016.
“Yes, you could say that there is a Ljajic agreement,” Ausilio remarked to Tuttomercatoweb late on Monday.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter have agreed to sell Hernanes to Juventus for €11m.
Juve have been seeing a creative player all summer, and after a move for Julian Draxler collapsed, reports emerged of a deal for the Brazilian international.
The newspaper reports that the deal was officially given the green light once Inter had secured Felipe Melo from Galatasaray.
Hernanes is believed to have already accepted the move to Juventus, and will now undergo a medical before signing his contract.
There is no hiding from the fact that the Brazilian failed to live up to expectations since arriving at Inter in January 2014.
Bologna have confirmed the signing of 23-year-old midfielder Saphir Taider from Inter.
The Algerian international had a loan spell at Sassuolo last season, and will now join the Rossoblu on loan, with a mandatory buyout clause.
“Bologna announces the signing of Saphir Taider from Internazionale on loan until June 30, 2017, with a mandatory buyout,” a short statement confirmed.
Taider was initially sent on loan with Southampton last season, but the loan was terminated by the English side before he had made a single competitive appearance.
Inter have agreed a permanent deal with Galatasaray for midfielder Felipe Melo as well as a loan deal for Alex Telles on the final day of Italy’s transfer window.
The Nerazzurri have been hard at work this summer, and two former players of Roberto Mancini look set to rejoin their coach from the 2013-14 season.
Sky Sport Italia report that Melo will move to Inter for a fee of €3.5 million plus add-ons, whilst Tuttomercatoweb.com say that Telles will arrive on loan with an option to buy.
Roberto Mancini said Inter “can improve a great deal” and warned they need more new buys after beating Carpi 2-1.
Stevan Jovetic has so far scored all three of the Nerazzurri’s Serie A goals this season, which maintained their 100 per cent record.
“It is pleasing to have won this game too, but the team can improve a great deal,” Mancini told Sport Mediaset.
“We conceded an absurd goal, but Carpi fought hard and I tell Fabrizio Castori his side can stay in Serie A playing like that.
Now it is official: Ivan Perisic is a new player of Inter.
Inter president Erick Thohir through Inter’s official website inter.it, has given his welcome to the Croatian international.
“We’re pleased to announce the signing of Ivan Perisic, a player who combines power and technique. His flair and vision will undoubtedly enable him to have a key role in Roberto Mancini’s side. He’s a quality signing. Welcome to the club, Ivan!”
Speaking to MNSports, an Indonesian broadcaster on Sunday Thohir said:
“I hope for an attacking midfielder and a winger to complete the squad available to coach Roberto Mancini.
That man again. Stevan Jovetic’s name will be in all the papers on Monday after he scored twice to hand Inter a 1-2 win over Carpi tonight. The Montenegrin striker spoke to the press after his star turn in Modena.
“I wasn’t expecting such a great start, but I’m happy that we’ve won again tonight and showed the strength to come back. We’re performing well so I’m happy,” Jovetic told Mediaset Premium.
“Inter have had a great transfer window and now we have another top player in Perisic. I’m feeling better and better – now I just need consistency and goals. We’re two matches in and need to keep giving 100% to hit our target of third place,” continued the striker.
Inter must show more of a killer instinct after allowing Carpi to level before Stevan Jovetic sealed Sunday’s 2-1, warns Roberto Mancini.
Roberto Mancini warned Inter must learn to kill a game off as they needed a late Stevan Jovetic penalty to beat Carpi 2-1 in Serie A.
The Inter boss was critical of his side for allowing Carpi back into Sunday’s clash after Jovetic had opened the scoring after 31 minutes, Antonio De Gaudio levelling with nine minutes to play.
Luckily for Mancini, the Montenegro international was on hand again to score from the spot late on, leaving Inter as one of only five teams to have won their opening two matches of the campaign.

Fredy Guarin spoke to Mediaset Premium after the 2-1 victory against Carpi in Modena.
“We had difficulties in the second half, due to exhaustion but we fought until the end and we found the net with game-plan and a lot of will. It was important to win because now there is a national break and then it’s time for the derby, Now we think about Milan”.
Neither win was been a vintage performance from Inter, but to go into the international break with six points will give the team a much-needed boost.
What did you think of the win and performance?
