Transfer Losses That Hurt the Most for Inter Milan Fans
The summer transfer window is gone, but Inter Milan fans are likely to be a little disappointed with their club's activity this summer.
Inter's ability to hold on to the likes of Wesley Sneijder was definitely a positive, but there are some players the fans would have liked to stay on.
While players like Alvaro Pereira and Rodrigo Palacio were brought in, they were probably not the preferred option for many Inter fans in terms of transfers brought in.
Here are some players Inter fans would have loved to see stay and others they would've liked to join the club.

The fact that Nigel De Jong is wearing an AC Milan jersey most annoy the majority of Inter Milan fans.
Considering he could have been signed relatively cheaply due to only having one year remaining on his contract with Manchester City, its a wonder that Inter Milan did not sign him.
Signing De Jong would have brought some great class and experience to the Inter Milan midfield and would have brought a player who was in his prime as well.

Inter Milan was linked to a move for Brazilian starlet Lucas in the last few transfer windows (via Talksport.com).
When it came down to it the Milan club was beaten by PSG for his signature (via the DailyMail).
Lucas Moura could have been the high-profile signing to really get Inter fans excited about the new season.
This is not a knock against any of the club's signings, considering they have gotten two wins out of three to start the Serie A season, but Lucas would have provided more quality than Inter's other signings.
He would have been a great buy for the present and the future and would have made the club much stronger this season.

Inter Milan signing Dutch youngster Luc Castaignos was one of the weirder pieces of business last summer. For Inter Milan to sign a player with Castaignos' age and potential was not a bad thing, but something which certainly wasn't the norm.
With the lack of youth products within the squad, especially on the forward line, Inter fans wonder why exactly a young player like Castaignos was allowed to leave. At the very least he could have been sent on-loan or given one more season to prove himself.
