    There was a good article in FourFourTwo issue no. 305, which discussed hypothetical money laundering scenarios. Considering that most of these clubs had or have Patrons like Roman Abromovic etc., the industry and many of these Player deals and their inflated prices is more to do with cleaning dirty money and making political connections then anything else.

    Also don’t meant to hate on Abromovic. Just look at some these owners in the past 10 years like De Laurentiis, Zamparani, Galliani and Berlusconi- characters right out of the Godfather series.

    Yeah probably. I read the Football Leaks book and there is quite some stuff. Probably most of the players (and clubs), at least when they earn millions in salaries use some kind of tax havens to evade taxes.

    If it's true that Rube dumped him because he opposed signing CR7 I feel he was right.

    Inter CEO Beppe Marotta: “Antonio Conte Is Very Angry, We Don’t Want To Sell Lautaro Martinez”

    Inter chief executive officer Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta has admitted there is a feel of real bitterness following the disappointing 2-1 loss to Bologna at San Siro yesterday evening.

    Inter took the lead through Romelu Lukaku and dominated the match for the most part but were made to pay for their inability to take their chances as Bologna scored twice late on to secure all three points at Inter’s expense.

    “There remains great bitterness and disappointment for not having obtained the three points in light of an excellent performance in parts of the match,” he explained in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia a short time ago.

    “Unfortunately what happened happened so as a result we are disappointed. We all spoke together with Conte to take a look at things and express our bitterness and disappointment at the match that was within our reach.”

    He was then asked how Inter manager Antonio Conte took the result and whether or not he is already thinking about Inter’s next match which comes against Hellas Verona on Thursday.

    “Conte has already started thinking about Thursday. He is very angry, but his criticism helps to understand a character and a man who wants to get much more from himself and from the team.

    “The match against Hellas Verona is an interlocutory stage of a journey, but it comes at a time when we have to show that we understand the value of what we through away yesterday.

    “In this extraordinary moment, the league and Europa League, that we will play in in August, and the transfer maket, unfortunately simultaneously co-exist.”

    Marotta was then once again asked about Lautaro Martinez’s future with the club and reiterated that Inter want to keep a hold of the Argentine, who has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona.

    “Inter do not want to sell their most important players, we are talking about a 22-year-old boy who is in a period of his career where there are constant rumours that maybe affect him.

    “We admired an excellent Lautaro in the first half of the season. Now he must regain the serenity that will allow him to have personal satisfaction and make his contribution to Inter like he did in the first part.”

    Next he was asked whether he expected more from January transfer window recruit Christian Eriksen, who has only shown flashes of brilliance since his arrival.

    “He arrived in January and has certainly had difficulty in an area of the team that is unfortunately suffering due to the unavailability of other players [due to injury].

    “He is a great player and he is certainly someone who can give much more. We will wait for him and will do so calmly. There are eight games left of the season and we will have to give our best.”

    In conclusion Marotta was asked if Inter have what it takes to go all the way and win the Europa League.

    “We will definitely try yes, we don’t know what the form of the other teams will be like but we have to believe we can do it. We participate to win.”

    Does anyone know how reliable Dagospia are? I have never heard of them before. They reported Marotta will leave Inter and could return to Juventus. Marotta said it's fake news of course but it's the second source to report it. Either there's some truth in it or they're just trying to destabilize the club. Both are believable.

    Dagospia is usually not particularly reliable, though it must be said that in the past they had a couple of interesting scoops, covering a story before anyone else.

    Reading that site, my guess is that they hear a lot of rumours and write stories, with not much interest for checking the source and reliability.

    CEO Beppe Marotta: “Inter Satisfied With Antonio Conte & Don’t Think We’ll Change Coach”

    Ahead of Inter’s Serie A clash with Torino, Inter chief executive Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta has addressed a number of topics, starting with the fact both Christian Eriksen and Milan Skriniar are starting from the bench.

    “Eriksen and Skriniar rejected? Absolutely not, these are subjective evaluations made by the coach. We play every three days, it is normal to rotate given the conditions in which we play,” he explained prior to the match kicking off in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia.

    Next he was asked how he wishes to deal with Inter’s immediate future.

    “We are repeat offenders when it comes to conceding at the end, it is normal for there to be bitterness but we have to make a 360-degree evaluation.

    “We need to look at the journey from September to today to understand things. Conte’s goal was to enhance resources and improve the situation. We are succeeding and we can only be satisfied.

    “Perfection does not exist, there can always be improvements. Conte knows, the work so far has been excellent but we can improve by getting closer to Juventus.”

    Next the former Juventus director was asked about Inter’s recent tendency to collapse during the second half of the season.

    “This season has been an anomaly. We did not want it to resume but we had to. There have been fluctuating performances from all teams. The situation after COVID-19 break has brought us a new experience that needs to be calibrated and that presents new problems. We have lost points against provincial teams, this means we have to improve.

    He was then asked whether Antonio Conte will be Inter boss next season amid reports he could leave or be sacked.

    “I believe there will be no changes. The club is very satisfied. He is an ambitious coach, he wants to win and is having a new experience, but we mustn’t forget this is his first season here, whereas clubs ahead of us in the table have been working with the same tactician for several years.

    “Ambition is natural and so is irritation and recrimination when errors are made to lose points.”

    Next Marotta spoke on Marcelo Brozovic, who has been fined €100,000 after being caught drunk driving a few days ago.

    “Let’s say it’s a disappointing situation to deal with. Aside from the fine, these lads must realise that their private life is also a matter of respect towards their teammates, the club and above all themselves. They should realise there are certain things they shouldn’t be doing, as rest is more important than ever.”

    In conclusion he was asked if Inter shouldn’t look to harm themselves less given the important objectives the clubs has.

    “I agree. The Inter badge is very important so pressure is natural, but it comes from the outside and can damage the confidence of those inside. We must find even more strength and belief in ourselves to resist that pressure.

    “Unfortunately, we’ve had a lot of injuries in the midfield and it has forced squad rotation to be somewhat limited in those sectors. We play with the desire to do well.”

    Sarri has been at Juventus for several years, makes sense.

    Oh wait, we've hired an 11m coach a year to lag behind Atalanta and Lazio on a coach we spat after 3 games and Pippo Inzaghi's little brother...

    When there are two reports in a matter of 3 days from a reliable source like Sky about it i believe there have already been contacts with Allegri just in case.

    Inter CEO Beppe Marotta: “Ndombele? We’ll Evaluate Everything After The Season, Brozovic To Be Sanctioned”

    Inter CEO Beppe Marotta discussed the Nerazzurri’s thoughts ahead of this evening’s clash against Atalanta, the club’s interest of Tottenham’s Tanguy Ndombélé and Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN before the game.

    First, he discussed whether there is pressure on the squad, considering their Europa League clash against Getafe next week.

    “The same as the daily talks we have, we are a club that wants a squad that aims to do their duty and maximize their performance on the pitch.”

    The former Juventus executive discussed the situation surrounding Marcelo Brozovic. The 27-year-old Croatian midfielder was recently forced to apologize to Carabinieri for shouting and screaming at doctors and nurses at an emergency room in a hospital in Milan.

    “We’ll be playing soon, then we’ll examine him calmly. A sanction? That seems pretty obvious to me.”

    Marotta refused to give any details regarding the Nerazzurri’s interested in Spurs’ 23-year-old French midfielder, who hasn’t impressed coach Jose Mourinho this season.

    “Every day there’s talk of negotiations being entered, all theories. In practice we will address the question of strengthening a squad at the appropriate time. A squad that deserves great respect for the very important journey they underwent this year. We will evaluate all opportunities when everything is over.”

    Finally, Marotta confirmed that the club have no intention of signing Barcelona star Lionel Messi, detailing how he hadn’t promised coach Antonio Conte the Argentine star.

    “I’ll just say this is fantasy football.”

    A win against Atalanta this evening would see Inter finish the season in second place.

    For hell’s sake, this club should learn once and for all there can only be two possible scenarios for a player to come here:

    1) Someone talented who wants to go up (Barella, Hakimi, Sensi)
    2) A good-to-great player who has a rift with a current management or does not fit the coach tactically or some other reason (Sanchez, Lukaku)

    We don’t need Ndombeles et al who are just plain shit and are below expectations in mediocre teams (like Spurs), which makes them kind of cheap (but still around 20m+), just cause there is a tiny one-in-a-million chance they don’t turn out to be total liabilities wherever they go to. This is going back to square one with M’Villas and other crap players we used to buy every single transfer window for no explicable reason other than our mgmt being greedy bastards after spending 30+m on another useless up and coming talent like Joao Mario or Dalbert or Kondogbia.

    Inter CEO Beppe Marotta: “We’ll Announce Signing Alexis Sanchez From Man Utd Tomorrow Morning”

    Inter chief executive Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta has confirmed that Inter will sign Alexis Sanchez on a permanent basis but started an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia by speaking about the end of the Serie A campaign and resumption of the Europa League.

    “A very important chapter ended on Saturday, that of the Serie A season, an anomalous one that was difficult for everyone,” he explained in the interview which took place a short while before the game kicked-off at the Arena Auf’Schalke.

    “Now a new chapter opens, the Europa League, and we enter it with the same spirit as every other competition, which is to honour the jersey, try to get as far as possible and try to respect the guidelines given by the owners while respecting the prestige of this club.”

    The former Juventus executive then went on to speak about the relationship with manager Antonio Conte following his public outburst after Inter’s 2-0 win over Atalanta at the weekend.


    “We are all focused on this important evening. Conte yesterday issued a very explicit and clear statement. Let’s stick to what he said. These dynamics are part of the game, we live with this way.

    “There is no stance on our part. All members of the company aim to achieve common goals, achieve satisfaction and give them to fans. The preparation for the game was the best.”

    He was then asked about what discussions have been had behind the scenes following the outburst and he admitted that the team cannot ever be satisfied and must always aim higher.

    “As I’ve said, I honestly just want to focus on this evening. In a larger analysis of a growth process and plan for a new era, with Steven Zhang taking over as President only last year too, these dynamics happen. There are also some objective results that show how we’ve developed.

    “We are happy, but want to keep going, improving and reaching even higher objectives. I heard when we stepped into the stadium tonight that we are the vice-champions of Italy, and that really did take me by surprise, but that is what we are and we want to do even better next year.”

    In conclusion Marotta was asked about reports in the media that have stated Inter are on the verge of finalising a deal to sign Alexis Sanchez on a permanent basis.

    “Unofficially, we’ll make it official tomorrow morning, the player is entirely owned by Inter. We have a contract with him for three seasons. We believe in him, that he can be a strong part of this squad and are happy to have concluded this deal.”

    This guy has one cool head on his shoulders.

    Over the last 20 months, he has had to deal with a lot of chaos which is normal at Inter. While previous management either lost their marbles or made poor, inconsistent decisions, Marotta kept a cool head and has been a model of consistency and stability. Like a boss.

    Very impressed with this guy.
