Inter have no issues with the Club World Club, unlike other sides and the players, but would rather see Serie A go back to an 18-team format to unclog the schedule, as Giuseppe Marotta told Rai’s Radio Anch’Io Sport (via Mediaset). “We don’t have solid info for now, but it’ll be an important showcase that we accept with pride even though it’ll add to our commitments.

Roma have already been linked to a few high-profile forwards to replace Romelu Lukaku, but they won’t just let Tammy Abraham depart for a low figure.

He played second fiddle to Romelu Lukaku for the most part. Roma paid €41M to sign Abraham from Chelsea in August 2021. They value him €30M currently. They aim to ..read more
