After a successful domestic campaign which saw Inter snatch the Serie A crown from Juventus and end their nine-year period of league domination, disaster struck.
The Italian side was dealt a major blow as the investment group behind the club’s financing – Suning Holdings – was hit with foreign cash injection restrictions imposed by the Chinese government.
So the league champions have been busy raising funds during this summer transfer window, as Achraf Hakimi has already been shipped off to Paris Saint Germain for an estimated 70 million euros.
With all the transfer activity going on at the club, it’s important to cast our eyes towards the most reliable news sources for general football transfers, as well as club-specific journalists who often get inside scoops due to having established relationships with board or staff members at these teams.
So the table below displays Inter Milan’s very own tier guide:
Inter Milan transfer tier of reliability
|Name||Media Outlet / Country||Tier Ranking||Reliability Rating|
|Official Club Source||www.inter.it||Tier 0|
|Gianluca Di Marzio||Sky Italia||Tier 1|
|Fabrizio Romano||Italy||Tier 1|
|Romeo Agresti (Juventus Specific)||-||Tier 1|
|Kristof Terreur (Belgium Players)||The Guardian||Tier 1|
|Mike Verweij (Dutch Players)||-||Tier 1|
|Alfredo Pedulla||Italy||Tier 2|
|Sky Italia (not Di Marzio)||Italy||Tier 2|
|RMC Sport||France||Tier 2|
|Mohamed Bouhafsi||France||Tier 2|
|Calciomercato (unless it's Romano)||Italy||Tier 3|
|Corierre dello Sport||Italy||Tier 3|
|La Gazetta dello Sport||Italy||Tier 3|
|Serpents of Madonnina||Italy||Tier 4|
Fabrizio Romano and Gianluca Di Marzio are still at the top of the dependability charts when it comes to Inter Milan transfer stories.
In fact, I haven’t made any changes to this guide since it was originally published last year.
Alfredo Pedulla remains in tier 2, along with the likes of Sky Italia, Mohamed Bouhafsi and RMC Sport.
So, all in all, there’s nothing much else to report here.
