The appointment of Antonio Conte as manager has given Inter Milan new line of hopes in the Seria A and Continental football. The Nerazzurri are in second position of the Seria A where before their lose to Juve last week they occupied the first spot on the log.
In the Champions League Perhaps, arguably, Inter played really well at Barcelona when Conte’s side faced the ever-threatening Barcelona at their ever-dangerous Camp Nou. Despite their good game against Barca, Inter lost 2-1.
Inter are hopeful of winning the Seria A title this season and their ambition could easily be affected by the recent injury of Alexis Sanchez-which will see the Chilean out for some months. Giuseppe “Beppe” Marotta knee on finding replacement for Sanchez, and Olivier Giroud has been considered in that remarkable direction- a move for the French forward in January is possible.
But at the immediate, Conte is expected to turn to the services of 17-year old Sebastiano Esposito whose talent has been rated and compared to many great Italian footballers. More experience legs for Inter is necessary, and that would not only make the Nerazzurri title contenders but the work of Conte this season will be more easier.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic sees himself as ideal for Inter’s remaining campaign especially now that Sanchez is injured. Zlatan, 38 has offered his services to Inter as claimed by Italian journalist Enzo Bucchioni.
In his latest editorial for TuttoMercatoWeb, Bucchioni claimed, “Sanchez’s injury has forced the Nerazzurri to bet on young Esposito and look at the January market. Giroud is one player that they like but not the only one. Marotta is thinking and is looking for a feasible idea, Ibra has offered himself and Inter are reflecting,” it begins.
“There are still two and a half months between now and the transfer market and in the meantime Conte expects a higher return from everyone.”
Zlatan know much about Italian football after spending most of his football career in Italy and has been instrumental for LA Galaxy this term scoring 29 goals out of 28 appearances, and could offer his helping hands to Conte.
Signing for Inter Milan would not be a new thing for him and Inter fans. The Swedish don Inter’s jersey between 2006 and 2009 where he won Italy top scorer award- Capocannoniere and three consecutive league titles with Inter before leaving to Barcelona in 2009.
