Management serves the coach's needs in the way they see fit or are able to operate given the restrictions, that's all that can be said.

If Inzaghi rates a player, management won't seek to send hin away.
If he doesn't rate a player and wants a replacement, if it's feasible they'll look to accommodate that.

For example last season Gagliardini couldn't be moved. Nor the year before. He refused all destinations presented whether they were Serie A, PL or some fringe league's team.

If Asllani decides that he'll be better off somewhere else, be it Sassuolo or another team, and we can pull a deal off without enforcing the Zhang buzzer, an incoming (loan/free) transfer will take place.

Don't think there's any players left to sell now, so transfer budget won't be affected.

I can tell you for a fact that Inzaghi would appreciate 2 new midfielders and 1 new striker. But this has to come at zero added cost.

Remember that in terms of quantity, the bare minimum was to add another midfielder (eg Samardzic), and we don't have someone else yet.
So basically the plan is to go with a 25-player squad. If we manage to pull that off, two of them will be dropped out of the UEFA list.

Gonna be interesting last day. In a way, I'm extremely calm as the main squad is complete. These last day additions and subtractions are basically just minor tweaks. Only that regista role is a bit of a question mark. But i guess it's gonna be Lopez in Asllani out, if something happens in that position.

I agree with Inzaghi about Asslani. He doesn’t really impose himself. Even his better games are ultimately a bit timid, anonymous and meh.

Marotta confirmed they're still active on the market and they're looking for market opportunities.

Pedulla reported Inter aren't convinced for Ndombele.

Van de Beek, I could see him revive his career with us. Klaassen, please stay away

Van de beek is a platonic transfer for me.
Pavard was one too… if I get two in one mercato I’ll die.

The puzzling thing with all these rumours is these players have basically nothing in common. Soumare and Fofana are DMs. Lopez is DLP. VdB, Klaasen and Ndombele are #8s. What exactly are we looking for?

Most of it just agents throwing their clients names around.

Inter definitely is focusing on a few types of players and settling on either will depend on departures as well.

Lopez is Brozo-lite so I approve the low football IQ move of swapping him with Asllani.
