Welcome to the latest instalment of The Serpents Kiss. If you are viewing for the first time you might want to start at the beginning of my journey with Internazionale if this is the case you can click on the following text: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four and Part Five. So you are up to speed with the story so far with us topping the Serie A table at the halfway stage of season 2. We had also qualified for the Champions League knockout stage of which we had been given a tasty draw against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. The January transfer window also saw one of our central defenders Milan Skriniar join FC Barcelona for a fee of £35.5m which opened the door for our two young Belgian defender’s Vanheusden and Van Den eynden to battle it out with our promising Italian Davide Bettella for a first team place. I did enter the transfer window to bring Filippo Melegoni in to the club from Atalanta for a fee rising up to £14m which I feel is a reasonable price to pay for the talented youngster.
