Shaqiri, Nagatomo, Vidic, Bardi, Andreolli - Five players to leave Inter

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer assesses the career of Xherdan Shaqiri, whom Inter appear interested in selling after just buying him last January.

Inter's new look will result in casualties in current squad Erick Thohir's Inter project has seen the club undergo a facelift this summer after an abject campaign last season. The squad has been boosted by the arrivals of Geoffrey Kondogbia, Martin Montoya, Jonathan Biabiany, Joao Miranda and Jeison Murillo and the Nerazzurri are not finished yet. Ivan Perisic, from Wolfsburg, and Stevan Jovetic, from Man City, are both reported to be on their way with the latter almost complete.

However, the squad...

Mario Balotelli offered lifeline by Italian third-tier ASD Lupa Castelli

Former Liverpool winger Luis Garcia gives his take on Mario Balotelli's situation at Anfield.
The ESPN FC crew discuss the future of Liverpool's Mario Balotelli after the signing of Belgium international Christian Benteke.
Former Liverpool captain Steve McMahon tells ESPN FC's Jason Dasey that Liverpool should do everything they can to sell Mario Balotelli.

With his career stagnating after one largely miserable season at Liverpool, it's no secret that Mario Balotelli, or at least his agent, is currently in the process of assessing his career options.

Despite the likes of Inter and AC Milan both reportedly snubbing Balotelli's advances this summer, the want-away Reds striker has still been offered an escape route back to Italian football -- though not quite at the level he was previously accustomed to.

Indeed, the lifeline has come courtesy of ASD Lupa...

Romagnoli and Ibrahimovic would mean a huge summer for AC Milan

AC Milan's new signing Carlos Bacca says the club are the biggest in Italy.

AC Milan are in China this week for the International Champions Cup and it is widely acknowledged that their work in the summer transfer market is not over.

Although they have made some astute moves already, what are the Rossoneri still missing?

New signings Andrea Bertolacci, Jose Mauri, Carlos Bacca and Luiz Adriano were all included in the travelling party, while the returning pair of Antonio Nocerino and Alessandro Matri also made the trip.

In turn, that would suggest that coach Sinisa Mihajlovic...

Ronaldo, Neymar, Aguero & Rooney show Sterling how to live with hype

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore says the £49m fee for Raheem Sterling does not reflect the true value of British players.

There's pressure on Raheem Sterling, 20, to deliver the goods for his new club after his £49 million Man City move. But such a fee may not be a burden to him -- here's 10 players aged 21 or younger who managed to live up to the hype having joined their new clubs for big money.

10. Neymar - €57.1m (officially), Santos to Barcelona, aged 21

You could say it's too early to judge Neymar as a complete success, but anyone who watches this beautiful, elegant forward glide across the pitch...

As Roma regroup after an up-and-down season, can they challenge for Serie A?

AS Roma head coach Rudi Garcia would not leak who or what he side is looking for, but says Roma needs three players for three specific roles.

On the eve of Roma's final match of last season, manager Rudi Garcia adopted a curious strategy with the media. The spin he put on the campaign might be termed a negative positive.

"We're top of 'our' league," he said, "because as I said after our last game, Juventus are without equal." It recalled the assertion made by Francesco Totti after Roma lost a top-of-the-table clash to the champions in Turin last October in controversial circumstances.

"It's like they play in a league of their own," the...

Kovacic can thrive in midfield partnership with Kondogbia

The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets and discuss which leagues will encounter the biggest changes.

It is still preseason and truth be told, little can be gained from analysing Inter's performances in too much depth. This does not mean, however, that in these matches we cannot see the beginning of new partnerships and new tactical systems developing. It is a time for fitness first and foremost, but for Inter, the deeper role of Mateo Kovacic and more importantly his link-up with Geoffrey Kondogbia has certainly been encouraging.

Manager Roberto Mancini has struggled (like Walter Mazzarri before...
