Inter Milan chief Fassone won't rule out buying again

Inter Milan chief Marco Fassone won't rule out more signings this month.

Fassone admits they've adjusted their targets for new coach Roberto Mancini.

"The summer transfer market was based on the needs of [former Coach Walter] Mazzarri, now Mancini has other priorities.

"Some elements of the squad don't gel with the priorities of our current Coach, but that can happen when you change Coach.

"I think if Mazzarri had stayed it wouldn't have changed the nature of our transfer dealings, but in the past we tried to satisfy him according to his preferred formation.

"Now we have the opportunity with [Lukas] Podolski and [Xherdan] Shaqiri. I have to thank Arsenal and Bayern Munich, who understood our situation by accepting loan deals.

"Now we're looking at other things, we're looking for a certain balance, we have a big squad.

"Should conditions be right, we'll talk with [Inter President Erick] Thohir and Mancini about any other business."
