Yes, Sanchez wanted to leave. And Inzaghi was one of the reasons as Sanchez wanted to be a starter and he barely got minutes.
He recently said that, but in reality, if ha wanted to leave why we paid him severance pay? We didn't do it with JM. Why all of the reports claimed that he is not in the club plans for the next season?
"Italian news outlet Gazzetta.it
outline the situation, in which the Chilean is “holding hostage” the Nerazzurri’s plans to complete their last few signings as he remains on their wage bill for next season despite not being in their plans
"One reason behind this has been that they have been unable to find a resolution to Sanchez’s situation, with the 33-year-old remaining their highest earner and in no hurry to agree a termination of his contract by mutual consent,
even with substantial severance pay"
"Alexis Sanchez is not a target of Marseille. The forward is not in #Inter’s plans for next season, but he has turned down their offer of €4.5M in severance-pay to terminate his contract with the club
"Alexis Sanchez has rejected an offer of €4M severance pay to terminate his #Inter contract" - why a player who wants to leave the club refuses a severance pay? It looks like we wanted to get rid of him.
And no, Inzaghi didn't even want Correa here. He ended up with him because Marotta failed to bring a bunch of players.
Correa was transfer listed throughout the transfer window. Only Lille made a minor bid. Correa rejected Lille. Newcastle wasn't willing to pay as much as we asked.
Then, in late August, Correa had a loan offer from Spain and we rejected it because Inzaghi didn't want to lose a player so late in the preseason without a replacement in the horizon.
Atletico wasn't it. They rejected the De Paul swap we asked for.
"As has been highlighted by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the €31 million price tag that is on the head of Joaquin Correa makes it very hard to view him through any other lens.
He has not lived up to that price but Simone Inzaghi has always been his most vocal supporter and insisted that the Argentine will come good
He doubled down on this in the summer when there was the chance of accelerating a departure for Joaquin Correa. By doing that, Inter could have freed up the space and money for Paulo Dybala to join the club.
Simone Inzaghi made it clear that he wants to keep the Argentine though
"The Nerazzurri management were Interested in signing the Argentine, but they needed to sell Joaquin Correa in order to do so.
However, Inter's head coach did not approve of Correa's departure
. As a result, Dybala's transfer failed and the forward moved to Roma"
Inzaghi himself - “On [departing forwards Alexis] Sanchez and [Andrea] Pinamonti, we made some choices focusing on these four, who give me great guarantees"
"Inter Milan boss Simone Inzaghi vetoed the club’s move for Paulo Dybala in favour of keeping Joaquin Correa"
Inzaghi wanted Correa stay, doesn't matter that Dybala or Alexis were the cost of that. It was imbecile decision.
Lukaku was Zhang's deal and Marotta obliged. He told Dybala to wait for 1 month, he said he couldn't wait and then he told him the offer was off the table. The deal was pretty much done, there was just a 500-800k difference with the agent which was easy to overcome.
Dybala would have come only if we sold one of Dzeko or Correa after Lukaku's arrival. It was mission impossible. He wasn't Sanchez's replacement. Sanchez was considered a goner anyway and Marotta managed to pay him whatever he was asking all along, just 2 months later, as usual... Being the hard negotiator he is.
We have shit management and shit ownership. That's the problem. Don't pin shit on Inzaghi that's not his. He fucks up games, he doesn't have a strong squad and fails to deliver in Serie A but he's not dictating transfer policy.
"Inter Milan boss Simone Inzaghi is more interested in signing Romelu Lukaku than Paulo Dybala this summer as the Chelsea man wishes to return to Italy, according to reports."
"Inter coach Simone Inzaghi had been reluctant to sign Paulo Dybala in the summer because he had concerns over the Argentine’s injury history.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the coach wanted Romelu Lukaku over Dybala, with the former Juventus forward’s history of muscle injuries a worry for him"
"Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi told the club that the signing of Paulo Dybala was not necessary following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea"
Inzaghi has the main fault for our current forwards. Marotta gave him the freedom to choose, but he had the word for the final decision. They got him Lukaku and kept Correa, so all of the negatives should go to Inzaghi.
