Tough choice that, shame you can't have them both
Two good targets mate definitely would be great to see them both there! Obvious choice would be Zouma but I would try Bellusci. I rate him highly!
Thanks both you, it really is a tough choice. I think I will get Bellusci because the other funds are needed elsewhere, but Zouma is a tantalizing option!
Get Zouma, an absolute tank.

Serie A

Despite a very disappointing draw at the 10 men of Palermo, we did manage to keep the top spot in Serie A. We are 5 points clear, but the Bianconeri have a game in hand. This is as tight as Serie A has been under my reign, and hopefully after my January signings we can start to pull away.

UEFA Champions League

We won every match in the group, which is very pleasing to me. Galatasaray finished a distant 2nd, and Valencia had to settle for a Europa League spot. Poor APOEL never had a chance, but at least the Nicosian side managed a point. We have drawn PSV in the knockout stages, and so I think we can easily move on.

Coppa Italia

We finally had our first Coppa Italia match, and we thrashed Udinese 4-1 in that game, just days after our 3-1 victory over the Udine side in the Serie A. We've drawn Cesena for the next round, who did manage to beat AC Milan on the road, so we cannot underestimate them. However, I think we have a strong chance of moving on.

Player of the Month

What can I say, Mattia Destro wins yet again. Andrea Ranocchia deserves an honorable mention, but Destro managed to score 10 goals in 6 matches, scoring in every match and netting a hattrick and two braces in the process. He now has 30 goals on the season at the end of the year.

Monthly Review

It was another good month for the team. We moved on in both the Champions League and Coppa Italia in very convincing fashion, and hopefully we can go far in and possibly win both competitions. Serie A was slightly disappointing in that we could only muster a draw against Palermo, despite them being down to 10 men for over half an hour. However, that is football, and we maintain our lead atop the league. Mattia Destro has just been unstoppable, but outside of him the team has not been at the highest standard. January signings will be imperative to boost the team's fortunes.
Your Champions League group... Damn :P
Great month mate and great work in the champions league. keep it up.
Good job topping the group AND the table.
Glenn T: Hey, I'm not complaining :P

The Special one: Thanks, and I think because I drew PSV we can advance to the next round.

Toon: Cheers, it's tough on the players' fitness to play so many games, but they've performed admirably so far!

End of Year Awards

World Awards

Ballon D'Or: Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona)
The magical Argentine wins his sixth straight Ballon D'Or and confirms his place as the greatest player in all of history. He has scored 40 goals and made 16 assists in 58 appearances this calender year, and official player ratings have given him an unrivaled 8.45. In second was Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid CF), and third was Champions League winner Wesley Sneijder (Manchester City).

Golden Boy: Rafinha (FC Barcelona)
To join his teammate Barcelona among the award winners, midfielder Rafinha won the Golden Boy award. The 21 year old made only 24 appearances this calender year but managed to score 9 goals and add 9 assists to his name, receiving a rating of 7.40. People are surprised that a player who did not feature regularly won the award, but Rafinha is certainly destined for greatness in Spain.

Inter Confirm Three Signings

It has been confirmed today that Internazionale has signed two big name players for the remainder of the season and another that will join at the end of the season. The two players joining immediately are Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko for 15m euros and Catania defender Giuseppe Bellusci for 4.6m euros, and the player joining on a Bosman free transfer is Ryad Boudebouz of Sochaux-Montbeliard.

Moussa Sissoko - 15m

Inter now has a history of signing "Sissoko's", having signed ex-PSG player Mohamed Sissoko last season, but the 15m euro signing of Moussa Sissoko will be seen as a major upgrade for Inter. The big Frenchman is capable of being a box to box presence, and will add much-needed depth to the Nerazzurri's central midfield. A player known for his determination and strength, Sissoko will also add steel to an otherwise mainly offensive group containing the likes of Andrea Poli and Andrea Romano.

Giuseppe Bellusci - 4.6m

Inter manager Guiseppe Bergomi has been a long time admirer of Catania's defender, but only recently has been able to make an affordable move. Earlier in the season, Bellusci decided to hand in a transfer request due to wanting to play for a higher level team, and Inter have now helped him achieve this goal. Known as an excellent all around defender and also very determined to succeed, Bellusci will battle with Juan Jesus for a starting spot in central defense alongside Andrea Ranocchia.

Ryad Boudebouz - Free (End of Season)

Considered the best Algerian footballer of today, Ryad Boudebouz has spent his last few seasons playing scintillating football in France. However, his club failed to renew his contract, and Bergomi pounced quickly, signing Boudebouz on a pre-contract agreement. Possessing the dribbling, flair, and touch to terrorize any defender, Boudebouz will be a welcome addition to an Inter side who boast very few wide players. Next season the Algerian should get plenty of games, having only Raheem Sterling to compete with, as Coutinho far prefers a central role and Ricky Alvarez likely to be shown the door.
Whenever I've played Boudebouz, he's been a massive threat. Hope these signings work out for you, but hey, you've got Destro so you're gonna win regardless :P
