Inter in the race for Pellegrini: Spalletti signs up for the auction

With the Champions now more and more in the crosshairs, Inter can afford to enter the auction for Lorenzo Pellegrini. The Roma midfielder has been close to Juventus for months, but in recent times even the Nerazzurri have moved their pawns. The main sponsor of this thrust is Luciano Spalletti who evidently has long known the qualities of the Giallorossi talent that had peaked in the youth under the guidance of Vincenzo Montella. Not surprisingly, last summer, before returning to base after the experience at Sassuolo, Milan's interest had been more than explicit. Now, however, the wind has changed: in Via Aldo Rossi they have taken other roads, while in Corso Vittorio Emanuele Pellegrini's candidacy is taking shape.
