Antonio Conte didn't stand this situation and left Inter.

Club had to sell one of the valuable players of the squad to fill the gap in their accounts.

Achraf Hakimi

was sacrificed in order to keep the rest of the key players. The replacement of Conte was another young Italian manager.

Simone Inzaghi

seems a suitable choice because he mastered the 3-5-2 system in

Track the latest updates, rumors, and done deals from the summer transfer window. 

Antonio Candreva

Antonio Candreva

, the 34 year old right winger or right midfielder, has been on loan to


since September 2020. Inter deal with Sampdoria had an obligation to make the deal permanent. His contract with Sampdoria is until 2024. He played in 35 games for Sampdoria in the past season, scoring five goals and providing eight assists. Candreva has contributed to 25% of Blucerchiati’s goals this campaign and considering his age, he has been a brilliant player for the club.

The arrival of Achraf Hakimi from

Real Madrid

last summer and Matteo Darmian from Parma, pushed Condreva further down the pecking order and on the Inter Milan’s bench. Candreva has had a great season in Sampdoria despite his fallout with Sampdoria coach Ranieri. Antonio Candreva’s sale will earn Inter €2.5 million. There has been some interest in him from his former club, Lazio, and also from


, because of his great performance in the last season. The seriousness of this ideas will become apparent over the coming weeks when it’ll be seen if there are any further developments or not.

Matteo Politano

Like Antonio Candreva,

Matteo Politano

was on a two year loan to


for the last season with an obligation to make the deal permanent. The 27 years old winger joined Inter in 2018 and despite his good performance, he had to leave the club when Conte became the manager. He was not compatible with the 3-5-2 formation Conte used in Inter. Politano moved to Napoli in the 2019-20 winter transfer window.

With the approval of the new Napoli manager, Luciano Spalletti, his contract turned permanent on May 1. In 52 Serie A caps for Napoli, Politano scored 11 goals and made seven assists. The transfer fee is reported €19 million.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Lazio has shown an early interest in Politano for a permanent transfer this summer. Sarri wants Politano as his first forward signing to improve Lazio’s attack, but Politano has three more years with Napoli on his contract.

Matteo Darmian

Matteo Darmian

's transfer to Inter is a long story. Given his excellent form in


, he was included in the national team. In 2014 World Cup, Cesare Prandelli used Darmian as Right-Back, whether in three defender system or the popular 4-3-3 formation. In July 2015 he joined

Manchester United

. Louis van Gaal used him frequently, but he had hard time to adapt to the Premier League and, more importantly, Manchester United style of football.

In Euro 2016, Antonio Conte used him in the same role he had in Torino as a Wing-Back. His brilliant performances convinced the English club to give him more chance, but he couldn't make it. Here's the part that is very important in the story. In 2019, Darmian wanted to return to Italy to restore his form. Inter Milan was one of the teams interested in Darmian, but the timing was not right for Inter.

Parma was another team eager to sign Darmian, but they didn't have enough money. Inter came up with an agreement with Parma that if Parma buy Darmian, Inter will buy him from Parma in the next season with a certain transfer fee. Inter kept the promise and Darmian joined the Nerazzurri in the best possible time. He won the league with Inter and also completely restored his good form. His transfer in the last summer was loan and in the

Inter 2021 summer Transfers

he became an Inter player at last.

Ashley Young

In January 2020,

Ashley Young

became one of the several sign-ins Antonio Conte made for Inter from Premier League. In the same window, Inter hired

Christian Eriksen

and in the summer window earlier Romelu Lukaku joined Nerazzurri. Alexis Sanchez was another Manchester United player Inter signed and Victor Moses from Chelsea was Ashley Young's duplicate in for the right side.

Young's transfer did cost much for Inter but he came in very handy. Conte immediately made him a crucial player and he remained in the starting line-up until

Ivan Perisic

got into an amazing form next season. As one of the players in the

Inter 2021 transfer list

, Young is the third English man winning Scudetto. Followed by Conte's departure Inter didn't extend Young's contract and he became a free player. When the due date came, Young's next club was already set.

On the 17th, he signed a one year contract with his former team

Aston Villa

. Before joining Manchester United, Young spent five seasons with the Lions and plenty of individual awards. Young had a total of 59 appearances in all the competitions for Inter and scored 5 goals and made assists. While Young is getting ready for the 2021-22 Premier League his fellow teammates Lukaku and Sanchez are with the Italian champion for the upcoming season.

Hakan Calhanoglu

Two months before Serie A ending, no one believed that

Hakan Calhanoglu

's contract with

AC Milan

wouldn't be extended. He was in his best form since joining Milan and for the first time in the recent years they got the promotion to UEFA Champions League. By the end of 2020-21 season, there was no sign of an agreement between Milan and Hakan.

Milan's assist leader and their Europa League top scorer postponed his decision to after Euro 2020.


was in the same group with


in Euro 2020. Due to unfortunate event occurred to Christian Eriksen and with the financial problems Inter had, finding a replica for Eriksen could be a big challenge for Inter.

Gianluigi Donnarumma

was the first key player of Milan, leaving on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. Donnarumma's transfer was likely, but after Turkey's early elimination, Hakan gave Rossoneri fans a real shock.

Calhanoglu joined the cross city rival Inter to fill in Eriksen's vacancy. Hakan has been in Milan for four years and in 172 caps, scored 32 goals and delivered 48 assists for Rossoneri. He could be a Luis Alberto replica for Inter's new manager Simone Inzaghi.

Alex Cordaz

Alex Cordaz

started his professional career in Inter Primavera. He couldn't be in the senior squad at the time. Francesco Toldo and Julio Cesar were Inter's goalkeepers, so you could hardly find any goalkeeper to get a chance to play in that squad. Inter loaned Cordaz a couple of times and in 2005 he left Inter and joined


in Serie C.

In 2013, he was finally bought by a top tier club. The club was Parma, but he didn't get a chance to play for Parma. He finally became a crucial player when he left Parma and joined


. In Crotone, not only he was the main man in the goal, but they made him the captain.

Cordaz made 248 appearances for Crotone including 110 games in Serie A. Following by Daniele Padelli's move to Udinese and Crotone's relegation to Serie B, he has returned to Inter. Italian champions successfully hired their homegrown keeper on a free transfer. The contract is one year long.

Federico Dimarco

After a loan spell in

Hellas Verona,Federico Dimarco

might be the missing piece of Nerazzurri. He left Inter in the 2019-20 winter transfer window. Dimarco's debut match was a home win over


. In his first match against Inter, he made his first assist. The first time Dimarco played the full time was against


where he made 2 assists. In 2020-21 Ivan Juric made him the left wing in his 3-5-2 lineup.

Simone Inzaghi, same as Juric and Conte, uses a 3-5-2 formation and Dimarco quite suits Inter in the upcoming season. The fact that he has the second highest number of big chances created by full-backs in the last season is enough for Inter to give the homegrown left-back a shot. The departure of Achraf Hakimi and Ashley Young could be a green light to the 23 years old Italian to be another young talent like





In the 48 Serie A appearances, he scored 5 goals and provided 9 assists. Dimarco played 15 games as a centre-back in 3-5-2, so same as Darmian,


, and Kolarov he has the capability to play in all defensive roles. Having an academy player is very beneficial for the Champions League squad list because the teams must contain at least 8 homegrown players.

Daniele Padelli 

In some of Inter Transfer news,

Juan Musso

was one of the names Italian press suggested to be

Samir Handanovic

's replacement. Handanovic was an


player before joining Inter. Musso left Udinese but he joined the other Nerazzurri. Atalanta signed the praised goalkeeper and now he has the chance to be the main goalkeeper of the Bergamo team in the Champions League.

Daniele Padelli

who was Handanovic's reserve in Inter since 2017-18 and formerly was Udinese player, signed a free contract to replace Musso. Padelli had a total of 9 appearances for Inter. The return of

Ionut Radu



to Inter after finishing the loan contract was another reason Padelli left. He claims to be originally an Inter fan but Radu would probably be Handanovic's substitute and in that case, Padelli might not receive playtime in Inter.

In 2011-12 and 2012-13, Padelli was Udinese goalkeeper. He made 9 caps in Serie A, 2 in Europa League, and one in Coppa Italia. The only non-Italian team Padelli played for is


. He made an appearance for Liverpool in Premier League. Padelli has the silver medal of the 2007 Champions League final however he didn't play in the competition for Liverpool.

Achraf Hakimi

The biggest one in Inter 2021 transfer list up to this moment is Achraf Hakimi's move to Paris. Hakimi had a great season in Inter and was one of the best players in Serie A. Hakimi's excellent pace and versatile skills made him a key player for Inter in Serie A campaign. The 22 years old winger joined Inter last year on a €40 million transfer from Real Madrid. At the end of the season, they won a precious Scudetto, and Achraf played a big role. He only missed one match through the season and scored seven goals.

Inter had to make money because of the financial balance and the only way to fill the gap in their accounts was in transfer market. Inter decided to sell Achraf Hakimi because he was one of a few players who had big market value and some clubs were interested in him. Other players, like




, had the same factors, but finding replacement for them could be impossible for Inter.

While all the big European clubs are dealing with economic problems,

Paris Saint-Germain

is the only team dominating the market. The French team has already signed with

Georginio Wijnaldum


Sergio Ramos

on free transfers and after Euro 2020 ending, Gianluigi Donnarumma will be the next free sign-in for them. Hakimi's transfer fee is reported €60 millions that could, potentially rising by €11 million in add-ons. The transfer is currently Inter's second biggest departure after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's move to Barcelona with €69 million.

Keita Balde

The 26 years old forward's intention to leave


has been in some of the summer transfer news and rumors. Inter Milan could be a viable option for

Keita Balde

, especially since he has worked with the manager Simone Inzaghi before.

The Senegalese striker started his senior career at Lazio in 2013 for a €300,000 transfer fee. During those four years in Lazio, he has been guided by

Simone Inzaghi

, Inter's new manager, for a season. After four successful seasons, he joined Monaco with a five year contract for a reported €30 million transfer fee. In his second season in the french club, he was loaned to Inter Milan, which he played in 24 games and scored five goals for the team. In the previous season he also was loaned to another Serie A club and again had a wonderful season. 

Inter might not be able to buy him at first, but a loan move with a buy option could work for the Italian club. Inter could do worse for a fourth striker and If Lautaro Martinez were to leave the club, Balde can be his replacement in Inzaghi's squad. With the Lukaku and


/Lautaro front, Keita wouldn't be a reliable backup for Lukaku.

Lucien Agoume

The youngster midfielder is likely to extend his contract with Inter Milan and will stay at the club until at least 2024.

Lucien Agoume

spent the last season on loan at


and impressed everyone, despite playing only in twelve Serie A games. He is now at the Nerazzurri club training with the rest of the team and has impressed the new manager, Simone Inzaghi. He has shown a lot of qualities and could be a backup for

Marcelo Brozovic


There is still the possibility of sending him on loan to gain experience. Several clubs in Serie A and Ligue 1 are interested in signing him and Inter has a busy line of midfielders at the club. His market value is about 5.5 million currently, and selling him would be profitable for Inter Milan. But the most probably way, if he leaves the club, would be on a loan deal.

Darian Males

The 20 year old striker has signed his second loan deal after a season in


, but this time he will be on a loan to

FC Basel

. Born in 2001, the striker was playing for Luzern in the Swiss Super League when Inter approached him. Males made his debut in the 2019-20 Super League and had 19 caps. Then he left for Italy and joined Inter Milan.

Inter Milan keeps its academy running by giving the talents a chance to play in European leagues. Nerazzurri is known for its prolific academy and scouting talents. Darian Males is one of the talents they have scouted in recent years.

During the 2020-21 Serie A campaign Inter loaned Males to Genoa. Males made his debut for Genoa in the Coppa Italia match against Juventus. Genoa lost the match, 3-2, in the Extra Time. This summer, Inter decided it is better for Males to go to a team that gives him more playtime. He has returned to the Swiss Super League to play for Basel. In the first two decades of the 21st century, Basel has 12 championships in the Super League, but they have lost the title in the few recent years. Darian Males has the chance to win his first silverware in the upcoming season.

Radja Nainggolan

Radja Nainggolan

is currently at the Inter Milan's trainings, but he is listed for transfer. Most likely he is going back to Cagliari, where he was loaned for the past two seasons. After joining Inter, he was a shadow of his former self and Milan never became his home. Cagliari is the first team the 33 years old midfielder played for in Serie A.

After the stunning performance in approximately four years in Cagliari, he moved to


. Nainggolan's career peaked in Roma and he was in Serie A Team of the Year in four consecutive seasons. It Seems that Cagliari is unable to purchase Nainggolan from Inter because he's too expensive.

The only way that Nainggolan could return to the Sardinian club is by either another loan or release by Inter. Inter is paying the Belgian player €2 million per season and Cagliari is clearly not going to pay him that much. The two teams continuing the negotiation until finding the solution to make the move happen. There might be a possibility of swapping players, but for now, we have to wait and see.
