- Match Analysis
Italian outfit Inter Milan have pinpointed two Chelsea midfielders as Summer transfer targets as Roberto Mancini aims to bring the glory days back to the San Siro.
Inter have fallen from grace since their treble-winning season of 2009/2010, but Mancini is adamant that he can bring success back to the club, and will spend big money over the Summer in order to make it happen.
According to reports, Inter are preparing to launch formal moves for Juan Cuadrado and Mohamed Salah, and are hopeful that they can lure at least one to the club over the pre-season.
Several other Serie A clubs are interested in the Chelsea duo, but Mancini is confident he can beat rivals to the signatures.
Salah spent the last five months in Italy after leaving Stamford Bridge on a short-term loan deal to Fiorentina, a deal which saw Cuadrado go the other way for £26million.
However, the Colombian has failed to impress in England and is already being tipped to make a move back to Italy with Inter keen on striking a deal.
It’s believed the club will only sign one of the Chelsea wingers, with Cuadrado their main target, but if they fail to land the Colombian, they will then go for Salah.
It’s looking more likely that Inter will be signing Salah, who is deemed to have no future at Chelsea, especially after Jose Mourinho confirmed his intentions are to keep Cuadrado for next season.
Mourinho admitted after signing the winger that the fans would see the best of him next season, and he’s willing to give the 27-year-old time to adapt to English football.
As for Salah, he’s all-but set to leave Stamford Bridge this Summer after failing to make an impact in England since moving from FC Basel.
