The 20 year old Belarusian left winger signed with the Nerazzurri for free and is not expected to play games with them this season as Inter are currently looking at loan options for him for the rest of the season but he could turn out to be great signing in the future.
Martin Odegaard is a 16 year old wondered from Norway who is touted to be the next great player in world football in the future having already made caps for Norway, is the youngest player to ever appear in a Europoean Championship Qualifying match and also youngest player ever to make a senior appearance for Inter when he did so against Empoli a game in which he picked up two assists.
Bernard is the premier signing for Inter in this transfer window as he is an electrifying Brazilian left winger who can create and score goals on a regular basis as he already has for Inter Milan scoring two goals and assisting on another in his first four games for the Nerazzurri.

Inter would also like to announce that they have sign wonderkids, striker Carlos Fierro and left winger Zakaria Bakkali from Chivas and PSV respectively. They have also signed attacking midfielder Leandro Paredes from Roma. All of these signings were free as Inter have signed this players on pre contracts and they won't be officially signed until July 1st, 2015.

A bold move by Figo selling such a powerful central defender like Vidic but in an interview earlier this week Figo said he wasn't getting the performances he was hoping for while being on $150,000 wage per week so to save the club money he decided to sell him. They have also parted ways with out of favor striker Rodrigo Palacio who was also making more money than he should've making $140,000 per week. Figo let go of experience in this transfer window and brought in the future of the club with also cutting his wage by $200,000 in the process.
Good Month For Inter As They Get Back On Track

In the month of February, Inter Milan recovered after a bad month of January with four wins, a draw and a loss. They started the month with a 1-1 draw with Napoli with a goal from red hot Mauro Icardi.

Jesus kept up his good form by scoring another brace in Inter's next game against game against Udinese, a game in which they won 4-0, Pavel Savitskiy also scored his first goal for the club.

Later in the month Inter handled Verona at home with a decisive 2-0 win, contributing on the goals were Mauro Icardi and on loan striker from Southamption Pablo Osvaldo. Nerzzurri had their eight game unbeaten streak snapped against Sampdoria in Genoa falling to Sampdoria 2-0. Inter finished the month on a high beating a quality 2-0 win over Roma with goals from Wellington Nem and Gary Medel. Inter are in a good spot in the table right now firmly in mid table and now have ambitions of moving up into the top half of the table by the end of the season.

Bad Month For Inter See Them Lose Twice

It wasn't the best of months for Inter as they lose to both Cagliari at home 2-1 and then lose in Torino 2-0. One positive of the month was the 2-0 win in the first leg of the Italian Cup Semi-Final against Napoli have them firmly in the drivers seat to move onto the final, Hernanes and Mauro Icardi both scored goals to soar the Nerazzurri in that contest.Inter's only league win this month came against Sassuolo 1-0 in Milan thanks to a late winner from Dodo who scored his first goal for the club as what looked to be a cross found its way into the back of the net.

Inter Milan see themselves in 13th place with ten games left to go in the season and we caught up with Luis Figo about how he feels about the rest of the season. "I think we have played good so far this season, not great but good. I'm aiming to finish in the top half of the table at the end, as well as an Italian Cup which would get us back into European football for next year which would be tremendous for the club after everything we have been through in the past year." Inter Milan get the month of April started off against Cesena on the 4th at the Dino Manuzzi.

March Fixtures

Hernanes - 1 goal, 7.8 rating

Kamil Gilk - 1 goal, 8.0 rating

Dodo - 1 goal, 7.9 rating

Daniele Dessna - 1 goal, 8.1 rating

Player of the Month - Andrea Ranocchia
In a month where Inter were only able to score four goals in as many games it had to rely on the back end to keep them afloat during the month and Ranocchia answered the bell playing great for the Nerazzurri at the back all month long. Especially helping the team get two clean sheet against Sassuolo and in the big first leg of the semi-final against Napoli Ranocchia dominated on the back end as he was the primary reason the Partenopei were unable to score in the game.

Slow Start But A Strong Finish To The Month For The Nerazzurri

It looked to be a lot of the same to start the month for the Nerazzurri as they lost to Cesena 2-1 but a change in tactics turn the tide on Inter's bad form as of late and help them reach the Italian Cup Final. After defeating Napoli 2-0 in the first leg, Inter destroyed Napoli 4-0 in Milan to go on to final with ease thanks to four different goal scorers on the night. Inter kept it going against Parma with a commanding 5-0 victory, Wellington Nem picked up a brace and Martin Odegaard became the youngest ever goal scorer in Inter Milan's 107 years as a club.

Inter continued their dominating ways by beating Palermo, Atalanta and Chievo to cap off a good month which could've been even better if it wasn't for the slip up to start the month. The Nerazzurri have gone up to the top half of the table with five games left to go in the season and they look to finish off the season strong and hopefully pick up the Italian Cup later in the next month against Cagliari in the final.

April Fixtures

Fransesco Renzetti - 2 assists, 8.3 rating

Bernard - 1 goal, 2 assists, 9.3 rating

Wellington Nem - 2 goals, 1 assist, 9.5 rating

Juan Jesus - 8.3 rating

Mateo Kovacic - 1 goal, 8.3 rating

Hernanes - 2 goals, 9.1 rating

Player of the Month - Mateo Kovacic
Mateo Kovacic exploded this month with his play as he was stunning all month long and was pivotal for the Nerazzurri over the month of April as they make their top half of the table push. Kovacic had 1 goal and 4 assists during the month of April but it wasn't his stats that was most impressive about him this month. He thrived until the new more attacking formation Luis Figo implemented after the Cesena game and since then he has been the best player on the team.

Some great results, good signings, smart sales... looks to be a strong save mate. Good luck finishing the season on a high!
