Serie A is spending a lot of money this summer, but why the sudden surge?

The ESPN FC experts discuss Carlos Bacca's possible transfer from Sevilla to AC MIlan, where Alejandro Moreno believes Bacca will be impressive at Milan.

Ending austerity is quite the zeitgeist and nowhere more so than in Italy. Cautiously optimistic about moving out of recession this year and seeing accelerated growth in 2016 and 2017, Europe's third biggest economy is showing the first signs of recovery. Italian football would appear to be, too.

"Rich again," declared La Stampa. A year ago, Serie A's clubs had spent €126.4 million on recruitment by the end of June. Even though the market was kind of on standby because of the World Cup,...

Xherdan Shaqiri goes undercover to prank Swiss youth team

In a brilliant prank conjured up by Blick newspaper, Inter Milan winger Xherdan Shaqiri disguised himself as (fictional) coaching legend Hansueli Strasser and went along to oversee a training session with a Swiss youth team.

While his make-up and wiry beard initially proved enough to swindle the youngsters, eventually they began to cotton on to the fact that something was awry when the bedraggled octogenarian began displaying his lightning pace and dazzling footwork.

Indeed, once the jig...

Inter Milan's transfer "formula" has positives but also some risks

With Martin Montoya set to join Inter Milan, ESPNFC's Janusz Michallik assesses whether their summer transfers can propel them back into the UCL.

Calculated, efficient, researched and professional are perhaps just a few words that adequately describe Nerazzurri's transfer dealings thus far. It is not even July, and yet the club has begun strengthening their team with incredible dynamism. The business has been innovative, so much so that it has been dubbed "The Inter Formula" by Italian media outlet Corriere Dello Sport due to its methods.

There is no debating its ingenuity, but when looked at closer, it is not without risk. If it is successful,...

Kondogbia's signing doesn't just benefit Inter, but Serie A as a whole

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti responds to Geoffrey Kondogbia's move to Inter Milan, where he believes Kondogbia was as good as Paul Pogba when he moved to Monaco.

The San Siro isn't the only stage for the Derby della Madonnina. Every now and again it is played in the transfer market, too.

Twelve years ago, Inter coach Hector Cuper went public with his desire for owner Massimo Moratti to sign "an imposing centre-back." Cuper went even further, identifying the ones he had in mind so there could be no misunderstanding. "A Jaap Stam or Alessandro Nesta," Cuper said. Alas, his wishes went unfulfilled. Both would join Milan, although not simultaneously, after...

Arrival of Geoffrey Kondogbia signals Inter's intent, but has repercussions

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti responds to Geoffrey Kondogbia's move to Inter Milan, where he believes Kondogbia was as good as Paul Pogba when he moved to Monaco.

Forget Zlatan Ibrahimovic, forget Diego Milito, Fabio Cannavaro, Clarence Seedorf and even Ronaldo. Geoffrey Kondogbia is now Inter's third-most-expensive signing in history behind Hernan Crespo and Christian Vieri. At a reported €40 million, he arrives in Milan with some expectation on his young shoulders. Just what fans of the Nerazzurri expect of him and what this will mean for the rest of their transfer window is yet to be seen.

As Kondogbia undertook his medical on Monday, the details...

Inter must concentrate summer strengthening on spine of team

Inter reportedly have agreed personal terms with Atletico Madrid centre-back Joao Miranda.

Phase one of Inter's summer campaign is almost complete, retaining the services of their prize assets was always the number one priority and they are well on their way. Mateo Kovacic signed a new deal in January that keeps him at the club until 2019, and since then all approaches have been rebuffed. Mauro Icardi is also tied down for the next four seasons, while Samir Handanovic is on the brink of signing an extension.

With this in mind, phase two is to supplement the squad with players who can...
