Corriere dello Sport claims that new Inter coach Frank de Boer will be given money to spend before the August 31 transfer deadline. Potential new arrivals at the San Siro include Ajax midfielder Riechedly Bazoer and Brazilian striker Gabriel Barbosa or “Gabigol”. PSG’s Marco Verratti is also a name being linked with the nerazzurri but having just signed a new deal with the French champions, his arrival seems unlikely.
 
De Boer replaces Roberto Mancini who’ contract was terminated by mutual consent and the 46-year-old Dutchman now sets about trying to return the club to the Champions League for the first time since 2012.
 
Staying with PSG, the club have blocked the potential departure of French midfielder Blaise Matuidi. The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Juventus this summer but Corriere dello Sport claims that the player is not about to move from the French capital. The Italian’s are still being heavily linked to Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic.
