Inter Milan clinched second place in Serie A, disparagingly described by coach Antonio Conte last month as the ‘best of the losers’, when they ended Atalanta’s 19-match unbeaten run with a 2-0 away win on Saturday.
Milan are hoping to keep veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who made more Serie A history in their win over Cagliari.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic became the oldest player to reach double figures for goals in a Serie A season with his strike against Cagliari on Saturday.
Ragnar Klavan scored an own goal after 10 minutes of a first half that also saw Ibrahimovic’s spot-kick saved by Alessio Cragno and gave Inter Milan a lead.
Pioli said ahead of the game he was hopeful it would not prove to be Ibrahimovic’s last for the club as negotiations over a new contract continue.
Ibrahimovic showed what the fuss was about with a fine strike after 55 minutes, which was swiftly followed up by a goal from Samu Castillejo.
Samu Castillejo scored the third for the Milan in 57th minute.
In another match, Inter Milan beats Atalanta by 0-2. Danilo D’Ambrosio and Asley Young scored for the win.
