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.

Danilo's late goal saves Juventus from defeat against Atalanta

MDP Live - Danilo secured a point for Juventus, who trailed Atalanta due to Ruslan Malinovsyi's beautiful goal at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia, Monday (14/2).

The Bianconeri travel to Bergamo determined to secure fourth place in Serie A, having made it through to the last four as La Dea went down to a shock 2-1 loss to Cagliari last week.

Dusan Vlahovic, who scored on his Juve debut last week, was the immediate threat after just three minutes. But his efforts can still be saved by goalkeeper Marco Sportiello.

Paulo Dybala had a golden opportunity to pass the ball to Vlahovic, who was standing in the more advantageous position but preferred to shoot and the ball ended up in the back of the net.

But Juve almost conceded in the 32nd minute, when Wojciech Szczesny decided to come out of his cage to seal the movement of Teun Koopmeiners. The ball went to Luis Muriel but his shot was blocked by Leonardo Bonucci.

The referee had time to monitor via VAR about the possibility of Szczesny committing a serious foul that deserved a red card, but decided not to send the Polish goalkeeper.

Just before half-time, Matthijs de Ligt made two brilliant saves to block a shot from Jeremie Boga and keep the scoreline level at half-time.

In the second half, Dybala made a fine through ball for Alvaro Morata. But the Spanish striker was not able to finish it.

On the other side of the pitch, Atalanta opened the scoring with a magical moment when Ruslan Malinovsyi's free-kick from 20 meters hit the top corner which Szczesny couldn't stop.

The battle was still open after that, but La Dea actually had a chance to double the score, sealing victory over Juve in the 84th minute. Unfortunately, Hans Hateboer's volley hit the crossbar instead.

Entering injury time, Juventus even managed to score an equalizer, when the execution of Dybala's corner hit Danilo's head in the 92nd minute.

With this result, the position of the two teams in the standings remains unchanged, with Massimiliano Allegri's side still two points ahead of Gian Piero Gasperini's side, who still have one match left.

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.

He is a unique player in the squad as he is one step ahead of the others in terms of the technical ability he has to carry out the role of No. 10. Pioli certainly hopes that the young Spanish star can be more consistent in maintaining his appearance and yesterday was the start.
