Challenges for Inter Milan

After a disappointing campaign, Inter Milan are facing a number of challenges as they seek to re-build, many of them financial in character.   Perhaps the most basic one is that they have too many players in the squad who are over 30, past their peak and difficult to ship out.    Many of them are on multi-million euro contracts.

Owner Massimo Moratti is no longer pumping lavish funding and the financial fair play rules are a looming constraint.   Against that backdrop, Champions League qualification becomes even more important and Inter are likely to miss out.
