Football Manager 2022 has arrived, giving you the chance to step into the manager's hot seat and begin your new rollercoaster career.
With Inter Milan bossing Italy last year and raising the Serie A trophy, expectations will be high at the San Siro.
Money issues may play their part, but can you be the manager that keeps Inter at the top of the pile in Football Manager 2022?
Financial issues have burdened Inter in recent months, with a measly £17.1 million in your transfer kitty, despite the sale of star striker Romelu Lukaku.
You will be tasked with once again challenging for the league title in Italy, with no strict expectations set on your play style or formation.
One of your main objectives is to work within the wage budget, as well as sign young players, preferably from one of your rival clubs in Itay.
With no set restrictions on your style of football, you are welcome to experiment with whatever formation you please.
We recommend a positive 4-4-2 diamond narrow, with Inter boasting a wealth of talented central players.
With Perisic or Dzeko partnering superstar Lautaro Martinez up top, you're guaranteed to score goals, whilst your midfield will provide the perfect engine room to propel your team forward.
You won't be surprised to hear that the Italian champions have a number of talented stars, and the three that we have mentioned are certain to be major players for your side.
Inter don't just have some of the best kits in the world, but they also possess some of the best talents.
A superstar in the making, Lautaro Martinez is the hotshot striker that will guarantee you stay near the summit of the league table.
Certain to attract offers from top clubs around the globe, you need to build your side around this Argentine star and keep hold of him whatever it takes.
Another example of a player that you NEED to keep hold of, Milan Skriniar is virtually the perfect centre half.
Quick, strong and composed at the back, Skriniar will court interest from Europe's top clubs, but you must do everything you can to keep him at the heart of your defence.
A combative midfielder who can score goals and make vital challenges, Marcelo Brozovic is the box-to-box playmaker that all top sides need.
With the Croatian settled in Italy, we recommend making him an integral part of your side and allowing him to become an Inter legend.
Whilst it's important to keep your top players happy, it's equally imperative to make sure you're nurturing the young talent rising through your ranks.
With Inter's academy looking a little weak, maybe you could invest and make sure this Italian club is developing the next generation of Italian stars?
A young striker who can operate in a deeper role, Eddie Salcedo looks to be an accomplished striker for the future.
On loan at Spezia at the start of Football Manager 2022, it's worth keeping an eye on this young talent to see if he can become your next star.
A tough tackling midfielder currently on loan at Brest in France at the start of Football Manager 2022, Lucien Agoume could be the next midfield ace in your pack.
With a good range of stats and a high potential ceiling, can you help this Frenchman become a star?
We've already mentioned the limited budget in place at Inter, which means you will 100% need to sell players if you're going to invest in the playing squad.
With some older players earning a high wage, you would do well to move them on and look to refresh this Inter squad.
Who to Sell
With players past their peak and still taking home a big wage, your biggest challenge at Inter Milan will be reducing the wage bill.
Alexis Sanchez is a perfect example of an older player on too high a wage, meaning you should definitely be looking to move the Chilean on.
Aleksandar Kolarov and Danilo D'Ambroiso are two players that fall into the same category as Sanchez, with both men earning high wages and not showing enough quality to make an impact for your Inter team in Football Manager 2022.
Who to Sign
With a small sum collected from players sales, and a nicer looking wage budget, we recommend you target a left back that can make an impact both now and in the future.
Our number one target recommendation would be Riccardo Calafiori, a 19-year-old left back currently playing under Jose Mourinho at Roma.
The youngster ticks many of the criteria set by your board, meaning you'll be securing a wonderkid left back with plenty of room to grow, whilst also improving your managerial performance card.
Stay on Top
The biggest challenge for any title winner is sustaining success.
With the financial issues hopefully pushed to one side, we believe you can keep Inter on top by utilising your world-class talent and signing exciting wonderkids that can serve the club for many years to come.
