Conte eyeing a reunion with Chelsea midfielder by selling three players


Inter Milan are vying to sign Chelsea midfielder on a permanent deal by selling three of their star players this summer.

Former Chelsea head coach is planning to reunite with his French midfielder at Inter. Antonio Conte was surrounded by rumors about him being removed from the head coach position. However, by denying all the rumors Italian has started signing his summer targets. The club is building a strong squad to post a challenge for the title and the European competition as well.

Inter Milan are busy in the transfer market with signing some big names. They are also having the job of protecting their players from leaving. Top players like Lautaro Martinez and Roemlu Lukaku have already bids from Real Madrid and Barcelona. While Koeman is keen to land Memphis Depay from Lyon and Wijnaldum from Liverpool.

Lautaro Martinez could leave Inter if Messi leaves Camp Nou this summer. The Argentine forward has not yet shown his presence for the PCR tests and for training. However, Barcelona management is eager to land Martinez from Inter but, Koeman has other plans. Both Lautaro Martinez and Lukaku have combined well last season for Inter scoring almost every game.

It’s now up to Antonio Conte and management to have a word with both strikers and console them to stay at Inter. Conte has also made some good signings this season apart from loan returns. The three confirmed signings so far for Inter are Achraf Hakimi, Nicolo Barella, and Stefano Sensi permanently. Hakimi is so far the best signing for Inter, who can burn the pace on the right-wing.

Apart from these confirmed signings, Inter are also in talks with big names likes Arturo Vidal and Aleksander Kolarov. Both these players might join Inter in the coming days. Former Manchester City full-back Kolarov has been doing well for Roma in Seria A.

According to Daily Mail and reports in Italy, Inter Milan are ready to offload three of their players to sign N’Golo Kante from Chelsea this summer. The three players are possibly Ivan Perisic, Dalbert, and Joao Mario, who all have returned to the club from loan.

Three players set to leave Inter this summer

Inter are on the verge of losing their star players and also ready to offload some of their deadwood present in their squad. The loan returnees are expected to make a permanent move this summer. Conte has his plans ready for the new season and is on the process to sign his targets as well. Inter have already agreed on terms with Arturo Vidal and Kolarov for a move.

This move could possibly be taking place this weekend with both parties in the agreement. Chilean midfielder is not in the plans of newly appointed Barcelona coach, Ronald Koeman. Vidal isn’t giving any trouble to his current club Barcelona by not asking the club to pay for the rest of his years in the contract. The aggressive mid has been a regular starter for the Catalan club since arriving from Bayern Munich.

According to CalcioMercato, Conte has shown thumbs up to offload Joao Mario, Dalbert Henrique, and Ivan Perisic this summer in order to raise funds to sign N’Golo Kante from Chelsea. The Italian coach wants a reunion with his French midfielder, who went on to win the World Cup 2018 with France. There could also be other departures from Inter apart from these three players.

Christian Eriksen, Milan Skriniar, and Marcelo Brozovic might also be shown exit this summer from San Siro. Inter is becoming a hub for Premier League players in Seria A. Conte is now looking to bring on N’Golo Kante this summer. The other Premier League players in Inter are Romelu Lukaku, Eriksen, Ashley Young, Victor Moses, and Alexis Sanchez. Alexis Sanchez didn’t impress much at Old Trafford for Manchester United.

Manchester United should consider signing N’Golo Kante

Former Crystal Palace player, Andros Townsend feels Manchester United should consider signing N’Golo Kante from Chelsea. He feels that the Red Devils can challenge for the title this season if they can seal a deal for Chelsea midfielder. Ole’s side has just completed the signing of Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Donny Van de Beek this Wednesday.

If they can sign N’Golo Kante from their rivals just like Juan Mata, it’ll be a boost for the squad. Kante can link up well with the Van de Beek and Bruno Fernandes. As a result, Pogba can play just behind these both to form a diamond in their midfield. “He is the best player in the world in that position. If hypothetically, he went to Man United, he would make them title challengers,” said Townsend to talkSPORT.

“For me, 100 percent, his best position is just in front of the back four, patrolling that midfield, literally like a wall between the midfield and the back four. Not only because they’ve got N’Golo Kante, but the freedom it’ll allow Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes to play higher up the field,” he added.
