Italian journalist believes Ivan Perisic will stay with Inter

MDP Live - Italian journalist Niccolò Ceccarini is very confident Inter Milan will be able to persuade Ivan Perisic to stay with the Nerazzurri team next season

In his latest report in the TuttoMercato column, Italian journalist Niccolò Ceccarini said that Inter Milan would most likely be able to persuade Ivan Perisic to stay at the San Siro. The two sides are close to reaching a new agreement.

“Inter are very active in terms of contract extensions. In fact, there could be an important turning point in Perisic's forward line. Some time ago the situation looked quite negative with little room for manoeuvre," Ceccarini said.

“But now, the situation has started to change. There's something that makes both sides start talking again, and things will be updated again soon."

“Simone Inzaghi wants the full-back duo for next year to consist of Perisic and Gosens, and is pushing for this project to be realised. Inter can relaunch by raising their wage offer to 4 million euros net per season."

"If unable to agree on a contract extension with Perisic, one possible alternative is, realizing the transfer of Cambiasso from Genoa whose current contract expires at the end of June 2023." he concluded.

Perisic himself has recently appeared quite vital in Inter's back line. In addition to having good attacking abilities, the Croatian player has defensive abilities that other players don't have.

Another plus, Perisic is a fairly unique type of player, good at finding space and has scored several goals for the Nerazzurri.

Salvatore Bagni: Inter vs Napoli The Real Scudetto Decisive

MDP Live - Former Inter Milan and Napoli midfielder, Salvatore Bagni assesses the Inter vs Napoli match is the decisive match for the Scudetto this season.

In an interview with Corriere dello Sport, former Inter Milan and Napoli midfielder Salvatore Bagni assessed the Inter vs Napoli match will be the decisive match for the Scudetto this season.

"Whoever wins on Saturday will be the champion of Italy. If Inter do it, they can start to build a big advantage, because they still have one game left," said Bagi.

"If Napoli manage to win that game, they will take points away from their main rivals, and force them to win other games, including the match against Bologna later," he continued.

"Il Partenopei will reduce Inter's sense of certainty and put them in a position where they are chasing and cannot make mistakes or slow down." he concluded.

Inter itself is currently in first position in the temporary standings with 53 points. In second and third positions, filled by Napoli and AC Milan. Both have 52 points, but Inter still have a game in hand.

Seeing the tight competition at the top, it is very possible this competition will run until the end of the season. Slip once, the impact can be very fatal, it can even make them thrown out of the competition for the Scudetto this season.

Inter is clearly not in an ideal position, considering that at the moment they still have to play in the Champions League and Coppa Italia. With a limited squad, Simone Inzaghi must be smart in doing rotations.

Italian Media Claims This Milan Derby Is The Hottest In Europe

MDP Live - The Milan derby is considered to be one of the biggest matches in Europe's top leagues. But for this edition, the Inter vs AC Milan match is much more special.

The Milan derby, also known as the Derby della Madonnina, is one of the biggest matches among Europe's top leagues. Inter Milan and AC Milan are known as Italian giants with a very long football history.

In the printed edition of Gazzetta dello Sport, the Milan-based media highlighted how the big game that will be presented this weekend will be even more special than the previous Milan Derby.

Currently Inter dominate the top of the standings with 53 points, while Milan trails in third place with 49 points, only losing on goal difference to Napoli in second place. This condition makes the match this time has a very strong Scudetto final scent.

Furthermore, Gazzetta then compared the match next week with the big derbies in other leagues, such as Manchester and Liverpool, Madrid and Barcelona. They are all big teams, but not in the standings next to each other.

With only a difference of 4 points, it is not impossible that the Rossoneri will do everything in their power to beat the Nerazzurri team. If they win it, the opportunity to close the season with the Scudetto is still wide open.

But on the other hand, if Inter Milan wins, Simone Inzaghi's team will be more confident closing the season by defending the Scudetto title.
