FC Inter is not shy about the 2018-19 season, the ambition is to win the Scudetto: the great transfer market, the second year of Spalletti and the confirmation of Icardi are all hints that point in the Tricolore direction. In order to understand a little bit more about one of the next Serie A's contender, we went with Nike Football to Appiano Gentile to have an exclusive watch of the training. 

There were all the new Nerazzurri's signings: all eyes were pointing at Lautaro Martinez, Radja Nainggolan and Stefan De Vrij. The most anticipated and acclaimed was the Argentine striker, who showed how he earned the nickname of El Toro: compact and powerful body, great determination on every ball and powerful and precise football (he scored a beautiful goal to Handanovic during the match). Radja Nainggolan seemed instead slightly weighted physically, Spalletti tried him as an advanced midfielder in support of the captain Mauro Icardi. Stefan De Vrij seems to be a veteran of the team, he ruled the defense and the younger teammates, with Skriniar and Miranda - absent in training with Croats Brozovic and Perisic - can form a Champions League level trio. In the training session we have also seen the other two new purchases Interisti Matteo Politano and Kwadwo Asamoah along with many interesting youngsters we advise you to keep an eye on Salcedo (2001 class forward from Genoa) and Xian Emmers (Swiss 1999 midfielder), who almost came to blows with Candreva for a game clash.
