Why Inter could sign Aguero

Category: News · 1 Comment 

After months of speculations Inter is final closer on taking Aguero from Atletico Madrid.

Although declaring several times that he is not thinking of leaving Atletico and that he feels really good and loves the club , it seems that the things have changed lately and Aguero would be willing to experience another league.

The main reason is that Abel Moreno, the coach, accused him for missing too much and that he doesn’t concentrate enough in front of the goal. It looks that this words have mad the Argentinian international and made him think about leaving. The most possible destination for him would be Inter where he is wanted by Mourinho and Moratti.

Inter already tried to take the 20 year-old forward this winter but without success. Also Aguero would be delighted to join Inter saying that he would make the best couple of attackers with Ibrahimovic.

Another decisive factor could be the strong relationship between Maradona, his father-in-law, and Massimo Moratti. On the other side one important aspect would be the amount of money that Inter should pay Atletico to convince them to let him go.

Aguero was bought by Atletico at only 18 years old from Independiente for around €20 millions and is considered one of great prospects for World football. Aguero has a minimum realease clause of €55 millions.

Few people know that one of the strengths for Inter in the last couple of seasons was the Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar.
Julio Cesar was signed by Inter in 2004 but made the first appearance for “the nerazzurri” only in 2005.
The Brazilian was brought at San Siro as a backup for much more valuable at that time Francesco Toldo.
Julio Cesar had an impressive series of evolutions and Mancini decided to offer him the starting role in Inter’s team. Since then Cesar contributed decisively to the success of the team.

The Brazilian offered security and constancy for Inter’s defence.
Besides the fact that he is a good shoot stopper Cesar is recognized for playing the ball well with his foots and more then that he likes to take penalties.
The 29 year-old goalkeeper proved again how important is for Inter this week, in Champions League match against Manchester United, having some great saves that could prove to be decisive for the qualification into the last eight.
At the moment Julio Cesar is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and if we consider his age we can say that he can remain on top for a long time.

Category: News · 5 Comments 

After Santon, who already established into the starting line-up for Inter, Daminuta could be the next youngster to make the big step to the first team.

Daminuta who was signed by Inter last year made some excellent games at Inter Primavera and is closely watched by Mourinho.

His last notable performance was yesterday match in Viareggio Cup, Primavera beat Vicenza 3-1,  when Daminuta opened the score after a superb free-kick. Daminuta was also part of the Mourinho extended squad into the training tournament along Santon and other few talented youngsters.

If he will continue to play like that then Mourinho could give him the chance to make the debut into the first team at the end of the season. Inter are 9 points ahead Juventus and 11 ahead Milan and in the last stages they could be champions already.

Daminuta is the leader of the Romanian U-18 team and is regarded as one of the prospects of European football. The 18-year old Romanian is a versatile player who can play anywhere at midfield or defence.
Daminuta is currently playing as central defender but is equally adept as defensive midfielder since he was playing at Poli Timisoara II.

Category: News · 2 Comments 

After winning the scudetto with Inter under-17 last season, Santon was called up by Mourinho to train with the first squad for the first time at the end of July.

Six months later Mourinho rewarded the talented youngster with a starting role in Coppa Italia quarter-final against Roma.  Inter won the game with 2-1 and since then Santon started all Inter games in the detriment of Maxwell.

Santon used to play as an attacking midfielder but later was used as a full-back by Inter Primavera coach. The youngster received only words of praise from his coach, Jose Mourinho, and his team-mates.

Javier Zanetti thinks  he has a great future ahead:  “He just needs to keep down this road, he has undisputed qualities which he also displays in training. He is also good at listening to our advices and I wish him all the best for a great career. He has what it takes to become an amazing footballer.”

If he continues to develop like this and Mourinho use him regularly Santon has the potential to be better that Zanetti. Considering his tactical versatility Santon can play on several positions , where the coach needs him at the time.

His physically and attacking qualities are also a plus. All this could make him the best full-back in the near future.

The youngster has also a great personality which is very appreciated by Mourinho but not only.

Santon continues to win admiration and could play his first senior derby next week when Inter will face Milan. If Mourinho will use him and he will have again a apreciated evolution then it will be very hard for Maxwell to regain his place.


Should Mourinho start with Balotelli at Lecce?

Category: News · Comment 

Mario Balotelli has been called up by  Mourinho for this week  game against Lecce after some weeks of absence. Balotelli was left out of the squad in the last six matches by Mourinho after he refused to play against Catania.

Since then Mourinho has not called him anymore and it looked like  the transfer window will mean the departure of the  Italian under-21 international from San Siro.

But after what he said at the pre-match conference we might think that the  Portuguese technician has forget Balotelli.

Balotelli could take advantage on Cruz and Adriano missing trough injury and  suspension and figure into the starting line-up.

Inter crosses a bad time, considering their past results, and a good performance from Balotelli against Lecce is expected.

Last game against Lecce at San Siro, Inter won the game after  a late goal scored by Cruz.

Balotelli is a player with huge potential but his behavior is sometimes unacceptable. Mourinho said once that if he would train at 50% of his capability then he could become the best player in the world. His set-pieces are deadly and his control skills are fantastic somehow similar to Ibrahimovic.

Also Ibrahimovic advised balotelli to train harder and to listen to the coach because he is young and he still has a lot to learn.


Inter not giving up on Drogba

Category: News · Comment 

The transfer window is closed but the speculations regarding the possible destination of some players still continue.



Drogba was one of the most hunted players before he got injured last summer. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter and Milan were all after him.

Inter were almost inactive on the transfer market this winter and everybody expect Mourinho to act in the summer. The Special One has never hidden his admiration and desire to bring Drogba to San Siro.

Inter are on top of Serie A, still in Champions League and Coppa Italia but the poor performances from last matches have made Mourinho angry.

Mourinho failed to find the ideal partner for Ibrahimovic into the Nerazzurri’s attack because of the inconstant evolutions of Adriano, Cruz or Balotelli. This could force Mourinho to start the negotiations with Chelsea.

On the other side Drogba is having a disappointing season managing to score only three goals from 20 appearances. The 30-year-old Ivorian international has fallen out with Scolari, who prefers Anelka up front.

By coming to Inter, Drogba is trying to regain to the form he played under Mourinho, the man who brought him at Chelsea.

Drogba has lost also Abramovic support after he declared that he wants a new challenge last summer.

Inter would agree an exchange Drogba Quaresma, considering that the Portuguese has already joined Chelsea on loan.
