After a disappointing performance in the Trofeo Tim last Wednesday, Mancini surely needs to adjust some things to his squad to be ready for the Serie A, which will start next week. Time is running out, and today he will have one last chance to rehearse tactics and movements in a nonofficial game against an inferior side, AEK Athens.

Here are the 21 players called by Mancio for this friendly:

Goalkeepers: Handanovic, Carrizo, Berni;

Defenders: Juan Jesus, Montoya, Santon, Ranocchia, Murillo, Miranda, D'Ambrosio, Nagatomo, Dimarco;

Midfielders: Kondogbia, Kovacic, Medel, Gnoukouri, Brozovic;

Strikers: Palacio, Icardi, Jovetic, Manaj.

It will be an interesting match, not only because it will be one more chance to see our guys preparing for the start of a season full of expectations, but also because it could give us more hints on a possible departure by Kovacic, who will reportedly be shipped to Real Madrid for €35-40 Million. You can follow the development of Kovacic's situation - and many other Inter-related things - on our official Twitter account:
