Slovakian defender Milan Skriniar is convinced he will play Champions League football with Inter Milan, and won’t seek an exit, should they fail to qualify for next season’s competition. The 23-year-old has been a revelation for the San Siro outfit since his arrival from Sampdoria last summer, and his performances at the heart of the defence have attracted interest from Spanish giants Barcelona.
In an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, the centre-back stressed that he is content with his stay with the Catalan club, and he is prepared to stick with the San Siro outfit for the long-term, he said: “When I came here, it was said that my price was exaggerated. Now I see it even higher. I’ve heard the talk, I read about Barcelona and other clubs, but I’m only focused on my upcoming commitments: I have to think about games and training. Nothing else matters. Certainly my stay at Inter isn’t linked to whether we qualify for the Champions League, although I’m convinced we’ll reach it regardless because Inter have quality men and professionals. I love this shirt and feel very good in Milan: I said ‘yes’ without hesitation when Spalletti and Ausilio asked me to pick Inter.”

Mauro Icardi does not plan to leave Inter Milan in the near future, according to his representative.
The Argentine has been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United over the past year, but Icardi’s wife and agent Wanda insists that the striker is going nowhere.
She told Argentinian television station Telefe: “We’ve renewed his contract with Inter three times because when other clubs have wanted Icardi, the club have done everything to keep him, naturally by improving the terms of his deal! Our relationship with their board is great, especially on a personal level. For example, when the girls were born, the club gave us a lot of gifts. That aside, Mauro’s very happy and he’s also the captain. It’s not our intention to leave Milan, but of course, if Mauro changes city for work purposes, we’d follow him.”
Last term, the 24-year-old notched 26 goals in 41 outings for the Nerazzurri whilst also providing seven assists.

Man United have reportedly agreed personal terms with the forward who they hope to use wide as they chase Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

Inter Milan has taken a bold step after the loss to Fiorentina and has ordered the players to remain within the premises of the club’s ground for next 7 days so that they can train well and ensure better results in the coming weeks.
It’s not something new in Italian Football. It is known by a specific term ritiro and many clubs have imposed it on their players in the past whenever the performance of the team has been embarrassingly poor.
During ritiro, the players are not allowed to go to their homes after daily training sessions as they normally do, but, they have to spend nights in the club lodge and then indulge into training again the next day.
In the views of the experts, ritiro is not a nice way of treating players at all because they are not kids studying in the 5th or the 6th standard in school. They are adult individuals and are well respected around the world. Continue reading Inter Milan has taken a bold step after the loss to Fiorentina

Italy national team coach Giampiero Ventura has opened the possibility of former Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli returning to the national team.
Balotelli was once regarded as the future of the Italian national team. His immense talent made him the perfect replacement for players like Alessandro del Piero. However, his talent has largely been wasted with the striker going from the start prodigy worth more than £ 25 million a decade ago into a free transfer for a French football team. Balotelli’s career has certainly not progressed as everyone hoped when he was making his name at Inter Milan.
Several moves to the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, and AC Milan followed, but Balotelli did not improve his ways. He continued to possess incredible talent but it was not applied on the pitch. This led to the Italian national team completely doing away with Balotelli as an option after the 2014 World Cup. Continue reading Mario Balotelli Could Be Back in the Italian National Team Fold
