The Nerazzurri owner has arrived in Italy to oversee the club’s activity in the market following the collapse of the exchange deal involving Fredy Guarin and Mirko Vucinic
Erick Thohir has arrived in Milan to oversee Inter’s activity for the remainder of the transfer window after being blasted for his conduct by Juventus and Giuseppe Marotta.
The Bianconeri reacted furiously this week when the Indonesian tycoon pulled the plug on a swap deal which would have seen Fredy Guarin and Mirko Vucinic exchange clubs – with striker Vucinic allegedly already having cleared his locker in preparation for a move to the Giuseppe Meazza.
Juve CEO Marotta slammed the behaviour of Thohir and Inter, acussing them of a “lack of respect shown towards two professional players” after a backtrack came 24 hours after a verbal agreement had been put in place.
With the conclusion the Vucinic-Guarin debacle, Thohir insists that he is intent on pursuing a number of targets to strengthen the Nerazzurri before the window closes this week.
”I’m here for a series of meetings with the club,” the 43-year-old told journalists, who greeted his arrival at Milan’s Malpensa airport.
“The most important of these meetings will start from Monday. We want to increase the amount of business we’ve done and also to evaluate the dynamics in the transfer market. What is my state of mind in this delicate moment? In life, we must be able to accept the ups and downs.”
Inter currently sit in fifth place in Serie A with 32 points from 20 games, 24 behind leaders Juventus.
