Moratti on Inter transfer, new stadium, and Mourinho

The ex-Nerazzurri president can’t decide between Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku and comments on the Serie A title race.


may lead the title should they win the battle against


on April 27. The Nerazzurri were the only team among the top three on the table to have come out of last weekend’s clash as winners.

Massimo Moratti

, the former Inter president who won the 2010 Treble, talked about the

Serie A

title race to Radio Uno. He agrees with


boss Stefano Pioli on his claim that the top four sides must play at the same time during the end of the season.

It would be more interesting and fair,”

said Moratti.

“Everything changes every weekend, Inter made the right step and were really convincing against Verona. A few games are remaining and there is no more room for mistakes. Games against the so-called smaller teams are those that make me more worried.

“I don’t think Juventus are out of the race just yet, unfortunately,”

the 76-year-old continued.

“They always find a way to win and I believe that the first three will have to pay attention to the Bianconeri, who never give up.

Inter will acquire at least one new striker for the 2022-23 season and they are eyeing both Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku. Although Lautaro Martinez has penned an extension deal with the Nerazzurri, many European clubs are keeping an eye on him, like Tottenham.

I’d always sign Dybala, he is really strong. However, I believe Inter need a centre forward. If it’s not Lukaku, Inter will need a new one anyway,”

said Moratti.

“Lautaro is a promising striker who hasn’t yet made that extra step. He has all the means to do well. I hope he can do better in the next games. Edin Dzeko has done well also without him. Joaquin Correa is a smart striker.”

Inter and Milan’s new stadium might be built outside the city of Milano, with Sesto San Giovanni an option for the two teams.

Sesto San Giovanni is an excellent spot for a new stadium, but it would be bad for the city of Milano,”

acknowledged Moratti.

“Keeping an empty monument like the Stadio Meazza there would be useless, I don’t want to defend it, but when you enter there, you feel the passion and you feel that incredible pages in football’s history were written there.”

He was also asked about

Jose Mourinho

, whose side Roma have not been beaten in 11 matches in the league and they are still part of the European competitions. The Portuguese tactician managed Inter when they won the Treble back in 2010.

I still talk to him sometimes, I hope he can do well, except against Inter after Easter,”

the former Nerazzurri president concluded.
