GDS: Benatia wants to join Inter – Kovacic to be sacrificed?
Mehdi Benatia to Inter is a deal that can be done according to Gazzetta Dello Sport. According to the newspaper the Bayern Munich defender wants to return to Italy, this not only because he felt better there but also because his family preferred Italy over Germany. Benatia is said to have wanted to leave Bayern in January. Inter who has great relations with Bayern(see the Shaqiri deal) believes that the deal can be done and the Gazzetta also reports that the player himself has called some Inter players to ask about the situation at the club.
Many ask with what money Inter would pay Bayern who ask for 22 million euro’s. The Gazzetta reports that the money would come from the sale of Mateo Kovacic. Piero Ausilio met with a delegation from Liverpool yesterday and the brits offered 10 million euro’s from the beginning, but now they have reached 18 illion euro’s. Inter asks for at least 25 million euro’s for Kovacic. Only one thing remains certain and that is that Benatia wants to return to Italy and that he wants to join Inter.
