NEITHER FLOCCARI NOR KOZAK
THE VICE MILITO IS PALACIO
Inter do not touch the safe for Paulinho.
The club will need il Trenza as first striker.
Milan – The last day of the transfer window did not leave Inter a signing. No fireworks like the last few sessions and thus no vice Milito. The opportunity, as told by Massimo Moratti earlier this week, did not arrive. So Floccari and Kozak are staying with Petkovic.
Laziali ideas For the Italian striker, Inter and Lazio did discuss until the very end. But demand and offer were just too far apart. Lotito had flown under the noses of Marco Branca and Piero Ausilio to make an agreement with Bologna: 2.5 million for loan, another 2.2 to sign Floccari permanently. Total: 4.7 million. The initial proposal from Inter was 700 thousand euros for the loan and they had no intention to go higher than that. A figure was considered too little for Lotito and that that point, the idea of Kozak was there but that never took off.
Thinking about Paulinho It should be emphasized, however, that Inter have already made their decisive moves for the winter session when Moratti and company will try to acquire Paulinho of Corinthians. Negotiations between all parties will resume after the Club World Cup (December 6 to 16). After the renewal with the Brazilian club, Paulinho has a release clause of 15 million euros. At the end of that tournament it will drop to 13. Inter, obviously, would hope to lower that figure a bit more but also they do not want to touch the money safe ready for the Corinthians midfielder: an acquisition of great prospect.
Possible solution without Diego Milito.
Alternatives to Milito And in the meantime, Stramaccioni will have to come up with possible ideas to give Diego Milito a breather here and there. No regrets on the sale of Longo not only because the young Italian has to play but also because Livaja is another equally interesting player. Certainly, he is not a first striker but Stramaccioni already has clear ideas in mind. The most likely scenario, as we have already seen on Thursday night, is with Palacio acting as the first striker, perhaps alternating with another second striker like him like Cassano or Livaja. The rest will be free to the imagination: hoping to come up with something as soon as possible.
