WE WILL NOT SPEND FOR SPENDING'S SAKE
Many fans of the Nerazzurri are eagerly awaiting the window, with big names such as Jan Kirchoff, Antoine Greizmann, Rogerio, and Andreas Stage being heavily linked with the Italian champions. While each player would bring new talent to the Giuseppe Meazza, Bergomi has taken up an "if it isn't broken, don't fix it" mentality.
"We have a very strong first team squad of 23 players and 4, 5, 6 young players in the U20's that are fighting for first team action," he said in a press conference. "On top of that, the team is playing very good football, and we look like a very strong team with good chemistry. Because of this, we will not spend for spending's sake and will only enter the market for the right player."
The only major rumor that seems to carry a grain of truth surrounds the future of €17.75M right winger Diego Fabbrini. The Italian arrived among much fanfare due to a very strong season with Genoa two years ago, before making only making 3 EPL appearances for Man City. The expert dribbler has found it tough to get an extended run in the team due to Raheem Sterling's good form, and may be shown the door.
Inter Milan winger Diego Fabbrini may leave the Giuseppe Meazza.
Another Manchester City flop, Eduardo Salvio, and Gremio winger Peruibe are apparently top of Bergomi's list as a potential replacement for Fabbrini. However, the fiery Italian said this on Fabbrini's future: "He is a player that we are very happy with at this time. Diego [Fabbrini] has been doing well for us and we have no plans on selling him after just 6 months at the club."
It is widely expected that the Nerazzurri will make a move for Werder Bremen starlet Andreas Stage. The Danish attacking midfielder, who has scored 11 goals in 17 Bundesliga appearances so far this season at just the ripe age of 19, has a great relationship with Giuseppe Bergomi, who he worked with while the Italian was still part of the Denmark setup.
"Andy [Stage] is a very good young player, and players like that are always welcomed at Inter. He would be a good fit, but for now he is contracted to Bremen and so I will not comment further."
It's bound to be an interesting January window for Inter Milan. Who will they sign? Who will they sell? We'll have to wait and find out!
