Elia Visconti netting a brace and Andrea Adorante added one for good measure as the Inter Milan Alleivi Nazionali (U-17s) picked up a 3-0 win over Palermo on Sunday in Forli.

The win sets the stage for a championship date Wednesday against Atalanta at Cesena.

It marks the third Inter youth squad to reach the finals of their respective age division. The Giovanissii Nazionali (U-15s) dropped a heartbreaker to Juventus in their final before the weekend. A little over a week ago, the Berretti (U-18s) picked up the only hardware for the club this season with a 2-1 win over Fiorentina in the Primavera Scudetto at Sassuolo. It was the sixth such title for the U-18s in their history and they will be in the UEFA Youth League next season.

But, one question keeps plaguing me … If we are seeing all this success at the youth level, where are all these players going?

In looking at some notable Inter youth players, I came up with this … very few are actually still with the club.

Marco Andreolli has just returned from Sevilla on loan and Francesco Bardi remains on on loan to Frosinone with an option for a permanent signing.

There are several other players that seem to have come and gone through the youth ranks at Inter, but who yielded very little success.

Jonathan Biabiany had some youth success with Inter and, as of today, remains on the squad despite playing only four games last season with little to no impact. Left back Davide Santon is also still with the club, playing 15 games last season.
