March 28, 2011 · Category: News · Comment 

Although Cristian Chivu contract expires in the summer of  2012 and Inter were ready to begun negotiations for a new contract only at the end of this season, it seems that they changed their minds and now want to start negotiations in order to not lose the Romanian defender. The new contract would end in 2015.

Cristian Chivu is a key  member for Leonardo ,  as he was played almost every time as left defender. Chivu is a versatile player that can play as a central defender,left defender,defensive midfielder or even left midfielder.

Before moving to Inter Milan Chivu played at Resita, University of Craiova, Ajax Amsterdam  and AS Roma.

Cristian Chivu has 30 years and came at Inter Milan in 2007.


Brescia-Inter Milano preview

March 11, 2011 · Category: News · Comment 

In the first game of round 29 of the Series A  Brescia will meet Inter Milan .

The game was scheduled earlier to give enough time for the recovery for Inter players before the return match with Bayern from Champions League, especially as Inter remained the only Italian team in European Cups.

Although the match against Bayern Munich in the Champions League is more important, Leonardo can not afford to make mistakes that will cost them victory in the match against Brescia.

Inter is now involved in fighting for the title in Serie A being 2nd place at just 5 points behind leaders AC Milan  and a wrong step in this match would decrease  Inter chances of rising to first position.

At first glance it seems an easy game for Inter because they play with a team ranked in a relegation position, but Brescia will try to take advantage of this match, especially as Inter players will  be thinking more at the Champions League game.


Inter have a lot of injured players

March 4, 2011 · Category: News · Comment 

Inter managed to reach 2nd place with just 5 points behind rivals Milan, returning to title battle. If Inter play just like they did in previous matches is possible that soon to have a change of leader. After coming closer to 1 position, it seems that Leonardo is unlucky.

In this season Inter had  many injured players and this thing may prevent them to reach the first place.

After  defender Samuel and striker Milito, Leonardo must make do without three other players. Chivu,  Cordoba  and Kharja  are doubtful for next match . If  Cordoba has an old injury, it seems that Kharja and Chivu  have problems after the last round match against Sampdoria.

Even if Leonardo has to do it without several players Inter must win the next game to not lose contact with the leader.


Will Goran Pandev leave Inter Milano in summer?

February 23, 2011 · Category: News · Comment 

There are speculations that Inter Milan will let some players to leave the club in summer to make room for other players.

After the attack was strengthened this winter and  are expected  other forwards in the summer probably some of them will have to leave Inter. Goran Pandev is the first striker who  seems unhappy with  his team status .

Pandev was brought to Inter Milan by former boss Jose Mourinho in January 2010 and was a regular first team player  and helped the Nerazzurri to win another Serie A title as well as a Champions League . After Mourinho left, Pandev lost his place in the team.

Under the command of former Rafa Benitez coach and current coach Leonardo, Pandev has been more a substitute and the arrival of Giampaolo Pazzini from Sampdoria last month further limits his chances .

First team who wants Pandev is Liverpool and is ready to offer 10 million euros. The Macedonian international appears to be the kind of experienced player that Liverpool are looking.

Liverpool are the favorite to buy  Pandev, but it seems like Tottenham  also looking to bring Pandev to the Premier League.

Although Inter Milan strengthened the squad this winter  by bringing  Sampdoria’s Giampaolo Pazzini and has quality players on this post as Samuel Eto’o, Diego Milito, or Goran Pandev, it seems that Leonardo is not satisfied with attack and wants more  offensive players.

It seems that owner Massimo Moratti was persuaded by his coach to spent a considerable amount of money for the purchase of two players from Arsenal. The Nerazzurri want Robin Van Persie and Andrei Arshavin.

Inter Milan is ready to offer €50 million  for this  two   players from Arsenal. If Robin Van Persie is probably at the best moment of his career, scoring 12 goals in all competitions in 2011 and would be harder to buy, Andrei Arshavin is at most delicate moment since he arrived at Arsenal losing the first eleven and would not say no to a new challenges.
