Piero Ausilio: Claims Inter have a clear direction for progress

Rumours have been rife in recent weeks and, despite Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna confirming he will be staying in England, Inter continue to be linked with a series of high-profile players.

The Serie A side, who sit fifth in the table, have already agreed a deal to sign Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic and Ausilio insists Inter are ready to further bolster their squad in the summer.

The Inter official name-checked Manchester City's Edin Dzeko, Chelsea striker Fernando Torres and Real Madrid frontman Alvaro Morata as he outlines Inter's desire to advance.

"Aside from the names I think it's clear that we are working in that direction," he told Sky Italia.

"It's true we cannot target players whose wages are too high, but in football there are often other resources. We'll put a little bit of creativity and ingenious thought into it.

"We are trying to put something more together to be able compete with countries who are better than us, like England or Germany."

Ausilio also denied suggestions that Inter president Erick Thohir is against the club bringing in players with a proven track record.

"It is necessary to build the team logically, the president didn't close the door to players aged over 30, he knows that experienced players are useful," he added.

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
