Inter Flop Set to Leave Giuseppe Meazza as Free Agent

It hasn’t been the career Davy Klaassen was hoping for when he swapped Ajax for Inter in the final hours of the last summer transfer window. After failing to find his footing at Giuseppe Meazza, the Dutchman is ready to pack his bags and move on in the coming months.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano states the 31-year-old will leave Inter upon the expiry of his contract at the end of June. If nothing, he has lifted the Scudetto in his first season in Serie A. And he’s reportedly open to staying in Italy.
Klaassen joined Inter as an emergency midfield signing towards the end of last summer. However, his career in Lombardy never took off. Head coach Simone Inzaghi used him only 13 times in the league, handing him a measly 195 minutes of top-flight action.
After only making one Serie A start, Klaassen is bracing up for a new chapter. Inter refused to take up an option to extend his contract for a further year, with the deadline passed on Friday. As such, the ex-Werder Bremen playmaker will leave as a free agent.
Despite his underwhelming stint at Inter, there’s no shortage of suitors for Klaassen. At 31, he could still give a lot to football. Unfortunately, competition for places at Meazza has been too intense, limiting his opportunities to shine on the field.
While letting Klaassen go for free isn’t a blow to Inter, failing to tie Lautaro Martinez down to a new deal could be upsetting. But as revealed by Beppe Marotta, there’s already a defined timetable for the captain’s renewal.
