Inter Milan does not know calm.
In a crisis of results at the start of the season, the Nerazzurri were able to bounce back to find themselves in the knockout stages of the Champions League and 2nd in Serie A behind the unbeatable Napoli.
However, instability reigns in the Milanese authorities and the future worries the supporters.
Between weakening of the workforce and financial problems, Inter projects itself in the blur without any certainty.
Serie A standings
Serie A fixtures and results
Acquired in 2016 by the Chinese group Suning, the club took time to regain the heights of Italian football, after many poor management choices.
Crowned Serie A champion in 2021, we believed in the rebirth of a great Inter, which was going to build its future on solid foundations... But the Covid-19 went through it and did a lot of damage to the club's finances. .
Suning sees debts piling up due to lack of cash flow.
Inter Milan is no longer his priority.
The club must now self-regulate by selling its best players at each transfer window.
A new transfer policy
In the summer of 2021, Inter therefore loses part of the base of its title.
Exit Conte, Lukaku and Hakimi who are replaced by Inzaghi, Correa and Dumfries for half the money.
Savings that are reflected on the ground.
Inter ceded their title to AC Milan the following season.
Very spendthrift between 2016 and 2020 (nearly 600 million euros in transfers), the young president Steven Zhang (31) was forced to lower the sails.
From now on, Inter is betting on young nuggets, with a view to a capital gain on resale, or on aging players that they will seek free to limit expenses (Dzeko, Mkhitaryan, Acerbi...).
Despite this policy, Inter Milan recorded losses of 140 million euros in the 2021/2022 season.
A situation that worries the Nerazzurris, concerned about the future of the team and hoping for a sale.
The Skriniar case and Zhang's debts
If the sportsman is doing well, the Milanese group has recently been disturbed by the Milan Skriniar case.
The central defender, captain of Inter, wanted to leave the ship this winter.
Retained by the club, for lack of a replacement, his desires to leave did not please the other executives of the workforce and even less the supporters who wanted him to be sidelined.
Stripped of the armband, the Slovak should still remain in the workforce according to his coach: “
With Skriniar, there is no problem.
He will be an Inter player until June 30, he is a great professional and I will decide from time to time whether to use him and how
may soon be smiling again, though.
Those who have been asking for the sale and departure of Suning and President Zhang for many months could well be heard.
Indeed, the young president could see his assets and therefore his shares of Inter Milan seized by the Italian justice because of too many debts.
A takeover of the club could make it possible to put an end to the haemorrhage and to finally start again on a healthy and serene basis.
That's all the Interists want.
In the meantime, there will be 70,000 hoping for a victory against AC Milan this Sunday, to further sink a rival in a crisis of results.
