There is no longer doubt: Antonio Conte will become the next coach of Inter. According to Alfredo Pedulla of Sport Italia, “there is a total agreement between Conte and Inter, not only on personal terms, which should be €8M-€9M plus bonuses, but also on the transfer market strategies. The very demanding Italian coach will ask for a couple of big signings and make adjustment and evaluation of the current squad.
“It is no coincidence that Perisic leaving is no longer a certainty compared to a few weeks ago because he is a player that Conte himself appreciates. Icardi, however, is another story. The Argentinian is not the prototypical striker that Conte prefers like Dzeko (wanted at Chelsea but no success) or Lukaku. A big winger has also been identify in Chiesa and the appreciation for Barella is well known.”
