Inter's transfer market dealings were by far better than those of city rivals Milan, Giuseppe Bergomi has told Goal.com.
Bergomi, who played for Inter between 1979 and 1999, and won a World Cup with Italy in 1982, believes it was his former side who set the standard of spending wisely in January.
He believes former coach Rafael Benitez's pressing reasons for change, and the new arrivals will allow Leonardo and the club to regain control in the Scudetto race.
"I say Inter's market was 10 out of 10. Giampaolo Pazzini is a player who can change games on his own and you saw this against Palermo," he told Goal.com Italia.
"He has given something more and he adds to the strength of an already powerful team.
"Plus Yuto Nagatomo and Andrea Ranocchia are also very strong.
"Inter operated better than anyone else on the transfer market. Benitez used to say his squad was not complete, and Leonardo is reaping the benefits now.
"The club realised it was time to intervene and thay have done very well."
