Guiseppe Moratta addressed the media about VAR

Earlier today, Beppe Moratta addressed the media during the Giacinto Facchetti awards ceremony. His comments were all geared towards the VAR decision at the end of the Fiorentia-Inter Milan game that ultimately determined the outcome.

“We suffered significant harm last night. We hope that it’s not irreparable in terms of the league standings because it could be really severe.”

He goes on, “As a director of football that’s part of the Italian movement and the Federation, the main regret is that we’ve invested a lot in VAR to help referees. The aim was not to get rid of all mistakes but to reduce them. It must be used rationally. We’re now faced with a situation where objectivity has been confused with subjectivity. I cannot help but remain disappointed and stunned.” Will we see Inter Milan act as an organization towards Serie A or remain quiet? We should find out soon.

Mauro Icardi is currently signed until 2021 and his contract includes a 110 million euro release clause. There are talks, according to La Repubblica, that a new contract is going to be offered with a release clause of 80 million euros.

There is a lot of tension between Inter, Icardi, and his agent/wife Wanda and the sooner a deal gets done, the better. If his release clause does indeed get lowered, it will be more likely that he does get moved by the end of this summer.
