2014 is a highlight year for Inter as the struggle for the third place Champions League placeholder spot merges onwards with a victory for town rivals AC Milan sending the Rossoneri to 51 points. La Repubblica reports just how crucial Champions League qualification is for Inter this season. Should Inter not be able to reach the 3rd place spot, the backlashing consequences are detrimental to Inter’s stance as an organization. The lack thereof a reward from UEFA for being able to attain a Champions League category would mean that Inter will have difficulty paying the wages of the players, let alone be able to look for further reinforcements and options from the transfer market. The inability to be able to conduct the Financial Fair Play regulations would mean that Inter will be at automatic relegation and disqualification from the Champions League competition until an estimated 2015-16, regardless of where they come in within the Serie A standings for the next seasons. The matter pertains to Stramaccioni’s requests in the transfer market for next season as well as an essential UCL position. Inter have already taken a hold of Campagnaro, Laxalt, Andreolli and Icardi… and Moratti wants to supply Stramaccioni’s project further, but this stance is coming under doubt.
