Inter Milan: Expected to spend during the winter transfer window

The Serie A outfit are expected to be busy in January after falling under new ownership.

With Thohir having acquired a 70 per cent stake in the club, he is eager to make his mark at Giuseppe Meazza.

Speculation has suggested that he is prepared to splash the cash, with the likes of Verona playmaker Jorginho and Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo said to be on his wish list.

Thohir has, however, moved to point out that any discussion about possible incomings is irrelevant until the window opens.

He told Tutto Mercato: "When someone writes that I want this or that player, that's an untruth.

"The market is closed and I have never spoken (about it). Before I decide to buy one, I have to consult with (Massimo) Moratti and the coach (Walter Mazzarri)."

Indonesian businessman Thohir is convinced that Inter can recapture the glory days of their past and it is his opinion that the club is as illustrious as any in Europe.

He added: "The football competition in Italy is often obscured by the Spanish or English, but I prefer Italian football.

"If I choose to buy a club, I do it for the great name and history. I cannot acquire a club that does not have these two features - it would be a defeat.

"Inter have a big name and it was a great opportunity. Inter had the right conditions to be acquired and has an important history in Europe and in the world."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
