Primera Division outfit Espanyol have made an official offer to sign Inter’s Argentinian playmaker Ever Banega who prefers a return to Sevilla, can reveal.

Espanyol have made an offer of €2 million to loan the player until the end of June 2018 at which point a clause will be automatically activated forcing the La Liga outfit to make the transfer permanent by paying a further €10 million. The Barcelona side have also offered to pay Banega’s wages of €3 million net per season in full meaning that Inter will neither need to contribute to his wages nor will the player need to take a wage cut.

Despite Espanyol’s offer being financially appealing to both Inter and Banega, the Nerazzurri have, however, decided to stall their response preferring to wait in offers from clubs who can pay cash up-front. This is due to the fact that Inter must balance their books for the 2016/2017 fiscal year in order to comply with the terms negotiated with UEFA in order to comply with the Financial Fair Play regulations.

This has prompted Sevilla to join the race to bring Banega back only 12 months after he left the club on a free transfer. Banega’s agent Marco Simonian was in Milano last night where he tried to persuade Inter to lower their €12 million price tag. Furthermore, can reveal that Banega himself favors a move back to Sevilla over a transfer to Espanyol but Sevilla have no intention of paying the player’s current salary, deeming it to be to steep.

However, can reveal that the Andalusian side are not prioritizing Banega for the time being as they are keen to wrap up the sales of Steven N’Zonzi to Juventus and French defender Adil Rami to Olympique Marseille before focusing on signing Manchester City wantaway winger Nolito. Sevilla, have therefore, made it clear to Banega that he is welcome to return but will need to take a wage cut in order to be allowed back, as his agent tries to persuade Inter to lower their asking price in order to unblock the situation.

Ever Banega’s current deal with Inter expires at the end of June 2019.

    IMO we should target Roma to offer Banega since there’s that guy who just arrived from Sevilla and is probably interested in him… maybe to lower the price for Manloas and/or Rudiger. Shiiiiiit, just saw the news Manolas almost official to Zenit. It’s just a miracle we always miss on our targets who go to another clubs for same or even less money than offered by Inter

  • Massimo Moratti

    No problem. Banega should lower his wages and show his love for Sevilla. That has nothing to do with us.

  • Inter4ever

    They wanna fuck us over with both Jovetic and Banega. Sevilla are cheapskates.

    • Zselic

      no, they just want to take their time and do smart deals, the ones we are unable to. can you imagine Sevilla going for Skriniar for 25m? Monchi established a great system there and they wanna stick to that even after his departure. Ausilio could take some introduction to negotiation lessons

      • Alex Humphries

        Walter Sabatini will school & mentor him. In Sabatini we trust !

      • Inter4ever

        So Jovetic isn’t worth 13 mil? Or Banega isn’t worth 12? Very smart of them

        • Zselic

          as it looks, to them, they arent

  • Nerazzuro21

    Fuck Sevilla. They always want to get players for peanuts. If they want players like Banega or Jovetic they need to pay or they can fuck off.
    Btw 12m is too low for Banega imo.

    He should stay at Inter
