Simone Inzaghi

and Marotta had a talk with the media today. Both were quizzed about

Paulo Dybala

’s situation, but the Serie A giants are not that keen on pursuing the ex-Juventus star anymore.

“We all know Dybala, it’s useless to talk about him. We have six strikers in the team, it’s not fair to talk about players who are not with us,”

Inzaghi said.

The same is true for Gleison Bremer who is the Nerazzurri’s No. 1 target to be Milan Skriniar’s replacement.

“Like for Dybala, I don’t like to talk about players who are contracted with other clubs. We’ll talk about him if we have a chance. Now it’s not correct.”

Inter have penned contracts with many players, such as Romelu Lukaku, who has come back to the club on a loan deal from Chelsea. Other players are Andre Onana, Raoul Bellanova, Kristjan Asllani, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

“It will be a strange season, we’ll play 20 games in three months and then rest for 50 days. It’s something new for everyone,”

said Inzaghi.

“I have an excellent relationship with Lukaku, the club informed me about this possibility and to me, it was a great coup. However, don’t forget that we had the best attack in Serie A last season. Lukaku will give us more options and solutions, but I don’t forget what my strikers have done.”

He was asked how he would use the Belgium international.

“It’s early, but I already have a few ideas. Last year we alternated games with more or less pressure. Lukaku gives us more options and then there are other strikers who have already done well.”

Inzaghi was asked how he would manage Edin Dzeko, who will not be a starter next season.

“We know how important he’s been for us and he will be an added value also in the next season,”

said Inzaghi.

“We won two trophies last season, but we regret that we didn’t win the title because with 84 points, you win it five times out of six. We start again with the same enthusiasm and we hope that will be the right time.”

Will Milan Skriniar depart the club? Are the Nerazzurri ready to find a replacement?

“I am well protected. You all know who the directors are and what they’ve achieved in the last year and a half. Skriniar belongs to Inter, he had a great season, he will join us for the pre-season and then I don’t know what will happen.”

He also revealed that Handanovic will the first-choice goalkeeper next season. He also talked about the club’s plans for the summer.

“Handanovic will be the starter because he deserved it last season. We all know Onana’s value, it’s the goalkeeper of Inter’s future and he will have his chances to shine,”

the coach explained.

“We must replace Ranocchia, the directors are already working. De Vrij is our only central defender at the moment. Our target is to have 20 outfield players and I want to promote three Primavera players permanently.”

“Asllani is very young, but he looks older than his age. He has clear ideas, he has a great Regista ahead of him [Marcelo Brozovic], he must steal to him some secrets, we followed him for one year and he has improved massively lately.
