On Thursday, Inter Milan completed the signing of their fourth player from England's top flight when they sealed a loan deal for Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses. The Nigeria international followed Ashley Young, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, who had all traded Manchester United for the Nerazzurri in recent times.

That trend, which has also seen England defender Chris Smalling join AS Roma, is indicative of Serie A's growth in recent years – a growth Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has credited to the arrival of Ronaldo at Juventus in 2018.

"Since the arrival of Ronaldo, Serie A has improved," Di Marzio said, as reported by Calciomercato.

"Something has changed in the way it is now possible to sign players. Two, three or four years ago, the players thought about the Premier League, LaLiga or the Bundesliga.

"After Ronaldo, something changed, we started to be a good league again and the players want to come to Italy because the country is spectacular and the games are fantastic."
