Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte has called on winger Alexis Sanchez to improve his game and get involved in more goals for the club. The Chilean winger has been struggling for form and consistency so far this season and is on the cusp of losing his place in the first team if he fails to show any signs of improvement, according to his manager.
Following his side’s defeat to Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus in the first legof their Coppa Italia clash earlier this week, Conte pinpointed that the game would have had an entirely different result if his Attackers did better than they did on the pitch. He particularly singled out Sanchez and insisted that the winger should do better and improve his game or risk losing his starting spot.

Christian Eriksen has been advised by some to leave San Siro if he wants to rediscover form. In particular, Micheal Laudrup, the Denmark legend, has urged his countryman to leave Inter-Milan after what he described as a hard first year for the Nerazzurri. According to Laudrup, Eriksen struggles mentally at San Siro and should look elsewhere and find something new if he wants to gain form again.
Eriksen has committed his future to 2024 after completing an £18 million move to Inter-Milan from Tottenham in the last transfer window in January. He was seen as one of the best playmakers in the English Premier League in Tottenham but has not lived up to the high standards in Italian League. He has contributed just four assists and three goals for Inter in his earlier 33 appearances and has failed to make a regular starting position under Antonio Conte, Inter-Milan coach.

Inter Milan is discussing a new deal with Barcelona target Lautaro Martinez says the chief executive of the club,Giuseppe Marotta. The Argentinian for the past few months has been speculated on a move to the La Liga giants but Inter has always insisted the club had no intentions of selling one of their best players.

Former Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has advised that the Lautaro Martinez should stay at Inter and focus on being successful rather than going to Barca on the summer transfer window. Martinez has been highly linked with a move to Barcelona and many have advocated his decision to go and some have suggested him to avoid the transfer. Messi has been strongly supporting on his arrival to Barcelona. In this season he has scored 12 goals and assisted three goals with 22 matches for the club.
Sneijder who has played in Ajax, Real Madrid, Galatasaray, and some other clubs advises that it is too soon for a young a player like him and he should focus on the current club.

Former Juventus striker Nicola Amoruso believes Lautaro Martinez has already made the decision to join Barcelona at the end of the season. The Argentine is currently in his second campaign with Inter Milan where he has caught the eye with 16 goals and four assists across all competitions. The Blaugrana have been long-term admirers of the striker’s services and it appears that they are prepared to make a formal approach to sign him this summer.
Amidst this, Amoruso feels it would be hard for anyone to resist the prospect of playing alongside Lionel Messi, he told: “Lautaro? It all depends on him. If he has decided to go and play with Messi, there is little to do. We could talk about how it’s one of those choices that change your life. Inter are also building well, but it will still take a few years before they will reach the top. I’m convinced that Lautaro has already decided to go, there’s a player’s career at stake, he’d join a team that’s always fighting to win, dominating.”

Slovakian footballer Milan Skriniar has said that he had no second thoughts in joining Inter Milan when they made the approach to sign him three years ago. The centre-back was pursued by the Nerazzurri from Sampdoria in the summer of 2017 and he has since gone on to establish himself as one of the most-sought defenders in European football.
His consistent performances have caught the eye of Barcelona and Manchester United over the past few seasons but Skriniar is clearly satisfied with the proceedings at San Siro, he told: “As soon as I heard rumours during the U21 European Championship I was flattered. Accepting Inter was an easy choice and I didn’t have to think twice about it.

Former Inter Milan star Andreas Brehme has said that Inter Milan are playing well at the moment and they need to build a winning run in order to keep up in the title pursuit. The Nerazzurri have gone neck-to-neck with Juventus for the league title this campaign but they have recently dropped to the third position after an away defeat at Lazio.
Still, they are only three points behind the Bianconeri at the top of the standings and club favourite Brehme believes the Nerazzurri must pick up three points from the Sampdoria game to stay in touch in the title race, he told: “Inter are playing well. They drew 1-1 at home against Atalanta, who are a great team. Let’s say that two points were lost against Cagliari when they drew and it is a pity how the match at the Olimpico against Lazio went but the title race is not over, Inter have played very well. Inter need three points if they want to win the Scudetto. It will be a great match. Inter will definitely win.”

Antonio Conte says that it will only be a short while before Inter start making an impact in the Champions League. He says that the sustained improvement in domestic form gives him a lot of confidence about getting back to success in Europe. Inter Milan have underachieved in European competitions ever since winning the treble – Champions League, Italian Serie A, and Coppa Italia – in 2010. Antonio Conte is the man tasked with getting Inter back to the heydays in Europe. Even though the club have not been able to get to the top of the table in the domestic games, they have been able to put up a remarkable fight for Juventus.
A few years ago, Inter would be more than 10 points behind Juventus in the league table but they are now just one point behind Maurizio Sarri’s men
. There is a real opportunity for Conte to break Juventus’ run of nine consecutive league titles – to which he has also contributed in the past. Ironically, this domestic form seems to be helping Inter in Europe, according to the manager. It would be common to witness teams that excel in Europe struggle in domestic games and vice versa. Only a few months ago, Conte was complaining about the lack of strength in the team but he seems to have overcome negative elements in the squad.
