Sevilla’s Bounou: Europa League final save is best in my career

A year ago, the Morocco international produced a standout performance as Julen Lopetegui's men saw off the Nerazzurri in Cologne Sevilla goalkeeper Yassine Bounou has chosen his save against Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku during the 2019-20 Europa League final as the best in his career so far. With the score 2-2 at the RheinEnergieStadion, the 30-year-old produced a moment of brilliance to stop Lukaku from beating him for a second time after the Belgian star had earlier converted a penalty in the fifth minute. The save helped Sevilla from going behind in the encounter as the former Manchester United forward later deflected Diego Carlos's strike in the 74th minute which turned out to be the match-winning effort.

Antonio Conte's men were named Scudetto winners following Atalanta's slip up at Sassuolo on Sunday Inter have clinched their first Serie A title in 11 years, bringing Juventus' long-running era of dominance to end in the process.

Inter Milan’s Hakimi should look forward to Real Madrid return

Sold by Los Blancos in the summer, the Morocco wing-back has a point to prove, as do the Nerazzurri who look to arrest worrying form When the Champions League draw was made in October, it seemed inconceivable to imagine Group B favourites Real Madrid and Inter Milan would be sat bottom and third respectively after the first two matchdays. However, that’s the reality heading into Tuesday’s encounter at Estadio Alfredo di Stefano with both sides facing off in the first of potentially mouthwatering contests either side of the international break. Buried amid the major storyline, where the clashes between the giants could either make or mar their immediate future in Europe’s premier club competition, is Achraf Hakimi facing off against old friends, with the first game seeing him return ...

Conte: Lukaku and Lautaro must improve to be compared to the greats

The Nerazzurri duo are in fine form this season but the coach says they must do even more if they are to be compared to the best Antonio Conte says Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez can still improve as Inter prepare to face Shakhtar Donetsk once again. The Nerazzurri made light work of Shakhtar in their previous meeting, winning 5-0 in the Europa League semi-final in August. Lukaku and Martinez each scored twice in that emphatic victory in Dusseldorf as they became the first Inter striker duo to hit at least 20 goals each in a single season since Adriano and Obafemi Martins in 2004-05.

‘How could Lautaro not gel with Messi?!’ – Milito aware of Barcelona appeal to Inter forward

The former Nerazzurri and Racing frontman says a fellow Argentine is happy in Milan, but concedes he may still be tempted to try his luck in Catalunya Diego Milito can appreciate why reported interest from Barcelona will be turning the head of Lautaro Martinez, with it easy to see the Inter forward slotting in seamlessly alongside fellow Argentine Lionel Messi at Camp Nou. A big-money move to Catalunya continues to be mooted for the highly-rated forward. Barca are said to have a lucrative contract drawn up for the 22-year-old, with efforts set to be stepped up when it comes to agreeing terms with those at San Siro.

Marotta: Inter will sign a top player if Lautaro leaves

The Nerazzurri chief has come out to address the future of the Argentine striker, who has been linked with a summer move to Barcelona Inter chief executive Giuseppe Marotta hopes Barcelona do not pay Lautaro Martinez's release clause but vowed to replace the forward with a star if he leaves.

Inter Milan’s Luciano Spalletti Convinced Me To Reject Manchester United – Ivan Perisic

Ivan Perisic says Inter coach Luciano Spalletti was crucial in persuading him to reject an offer from Manchester United and remain in Italy. The winger was courted heavily by Jose Mourinho’s side throughout the last transfer window and had expressed a desire to leave San Siro. Inter held on to the Croatia international, however, and he signed a new contract in September which ties him to the club until 2022. Perisic has no reason to regret his decision, as he helped Inter climb to the top of Serie A with a hat-trick in Sunday’s 5-0 win over Chievo. The 28-year-old is now on seven goals and six assists in the league and says much of his and the Nerazzuri’s good form is down to the coach. “Spalletti told us that every player is important and we got proof of that in the win, as...
