Napoli are the only team with a perfect record in Italian football after six games this season. The Europa League campaigners have been in sensational form in the Italian Serie A this season but that unblemished record is at serious risk ahead of the trip to Florence later this weekend.
The Partenopei take on a Fiorentina side with four wins in the league this term. Also, Fiorentina have won four of their last five Serie A outings. The only defeat in five matches in the Italian football top flight came against defending champions Inter Milan. Fiorentina lost 3-1 to the Nerazzuri with ten men after Argentine international Nicolas Gonzalez was sent off for dissent via two yellow cards in quick succession.

The Italian Serie A is set to commence this weekend and its new campaign is one that has a lot of questions attached to it. Questions like “Who will be crowned this year’s champions?” will, of course, appear at the very top of the list but there are others too that have been asked even though the answers can’t be gotten yet until after the season comes to an end. One other question is whether Inter Milan can bring in a perfect replacement for the departed Romelu Lukaku after the Belgium international striker completed his dream return to England to continue from where he stopped at Chelsea.
A lot of people blame Inter for selling the striker but the club needed only one major reason to sell the player but they had two. First, they were in an unwanted financial situation and they needed to make player sales to ensure that they got some revenue this summer or else they would go bankrupt. Secondly, Lukaku told them of his desire to return to Chelsea and they could not stop the player from leaving this summer as well. Continue reading CAN INTER CHALLENGE FOR THE TITLE THIS NEW SEASON?

In what will come as a new and surprising transfer twist, reports are claiming that English Premier League side Chelsea were never interested in signing Inter Milan defender Achraf Hakimi this summer. The reports are particularly hard to believe because the rumors had it over the media through several headlines that the Blues were the other club asides from Paris Saint-Germain to have shown serious and concrete interest in signing the defender. But according to the latest reports, Chelsea were never in the race.
Just earlier this month, there was a report that Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain were engaged in a bidding war for the Moroccan international defender, with the Blues said to have made an offer of around £70 million while PSG upped the bid to £80 million before finally establishing an agreement with Inter Milan over the transfer.

The Rossoneri had just one job but they surprisingly fluffed their lines to make Champions League qualification more difficult. They would have sealed their return to the Champions League with a win over visitors Cagliari at the weekend but the seven-time European champions could only play a goalless draw with the team from Sardinia. Continue reading MILAN IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DANGER
