After a long summer break, Serie A is finally happening, there's no doubt that it will bring us a huge amount of excitement, stress, and joy in the new season. As always, the most exciting this season will be the fight for the very top of the table.
The Inter project got off to a strong start last season. The title was won furiously, Hakimi was brought from Borussia Dortmund, along with the rest of the big names such as Sanchez, L. Martinez, Lukaku, Eriksen, Barella, and others - it can be said that they won the championship relatively easily. However, the situation is now significantly different. Inter is much weaker, Hakimi and Lukaku left them, Conte left the position of chief of the professional staff, Inzaghi came, while the fate of several important players is still unknown. As for arrivals, Dumfries (PSV), Dzeko (Roma), and Calhanoglu (Milan) arrived. Inter will certainly be weaker this season, and the question is what they will do in the fight on several fronts.
City rival and runner-up, Milan - was a bit more active. The biggest loss is the departure of Donnarumma to Paris Saint-Germain, after his contract expired, while the contracts of Tonali (Brescia) and Tomori (Chelsea) were bought. Giroud arrived as a free agent, while funds were set aside for Maignan (Lille) and Toure (Monaco). Milan will have a very similar team in terms of quality from the previous season, so there will no doubt be at least a place in the Champions League in this one as well.

Atalanta strengthened with Juan Musa, the goalkeeper of Udinese. Mateo Lovato arrived from Verona, just like Demiral from Juventus, while they were left by players who did not have too many minutes, not counting the departure of goalkeepers Golini and Romero to Tottenham.
When it comes to Juventus, it is worth mentioning the arrival of the young Brazilian Caio Georges, then Locatelli, and the purchase of the contract of Weston McKenna. There were no significant departures, so Juventus with Ronaldo will be one of the favorites in all competitions in which they will play next season as well. Of course, players like Chiesa and Kulusevski are expected to be much better than last season.
The fight between those who will have a hard time winning the title, but with great chances for Europe, is now almost standard. Napoli, Lazio, Roma, Sassuolo, Fiorentina, Sampdoria and a couple of other clubs… They will lead the fight without a doubt from the fifth to somewhere in the 12th position. When it comes to the playing staff of those teams, for example, Felipe Anderson returned to Lazio. The arrival of Abraham in Roma for a huge 40 million euros caused a shock, but also the takeover of the Mourinho club from Rome, who immediately crossed out as many as 23 players at the start?!
Big cuts have happened and will happen to Roma. Pedro has joined the ranks of the city's fiercest rival, Lazio, and more departures are expected in the next 10 days. Fiorentina, especially interesting to us - will probably keep Dusana Vlahovic. Sampdoria bought the experienced Candreva from Inter. Genoa persuaded Goran Pandev to play one more season for them.
