Inter Milan: 5 Shock Signings That Could Boost the Nerazzurri's Scudetto Chances
Inter Milan has a tough fight on their hands to return to the zenith of Italian football this season.
While their side looks primed to have a run at breaking the top four, there truly does not appear to be the makings of a Scudetto-winning side in the Nerazzurri locker room.
However, a few big moves that no one would expect could change the fortunes of the club heading into the new season.
If the funds were available, here are some potential shock acquisitions that would have a major impact on the club's chances of mounting a title fight.

It seems that the interest around Edinson Cavani will be dying down.
However, there have been stranger things happen than players signing new contracts only to be sold for the right price.
A marquee signing such as Cavani for the future of the Inter front line would be a massive boost and a major shock to any fan's eyes.

However, Inter is not ashamed to sign player's from the other side of the San Siro's past, and a bid for the Brazilian would be a major twist, much to their rival's chagrin.
Putting Kaka on the field with Wesley Sneijder could potentially make one of the most creative midfields in all of football.

Another midfield prospect that would be a surprise but a wise option would be Benfica's Nicolas Gaitan.
According to TalkSport, Gaitan appears to be settled at Benfica for the coming season. But he is another player who could pair well with Sneijder, and he doesn't have the horrid injury history of Kaka on his bad side.

The first point is we don’t want to sell him. Secondly, I believe he will be a player who’ll thrive in this way of working and thirdly, he doesn’t want to leave.
He made that clear in the first conversation we had.
However, it would not be the first time that something cropped up that forced the hand of both manager and player if the board became money-hungry.
A star International such as Agger would be a huge boost to the Inter Milan defense if they could pull off such a coup d'etat.

Although Inter Milan have Antonio Cassano, Diego Milito and Rodrigo Palacio to man their front lines, the arrival of an up-and-coming world-class talent in Leandro Damiao could do them all a bit of good.
The fight for a place and the added competition to the first team could see the youngster claim a place in the starting XI and make a massive impact on the club's fortunes.
According to ESPN, several days ago it seemed clear that English Premier League club Tottenham were closing in on him, but just this past afternoon, Goal.com reported that talks had once again stalled between Inter and Damiao's Brazilian side Internacional.
