Inter No Further Forward In Pastore Pursuit
Javier Pastore has shared about his admiration for Walter Sabatini’s work and his passion for the Nerazzurri colours. However “from Christmas Eve to today, nothing has changed, his high salary remains an obstacle for negotiations to proceed,” as reported by Gazzetta dello Sport.
The news outlet also claim that Manchester United’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan is the alternative. Jose Mourinho has not played the Armenian since November 5th.
Inter are in desperate need of a dedicated trequartista of top level quality, as part of the trident behind Mauro Icardi in order to offer them an additional dynamic when attackinh, while also complying with FFP.
Ramires of Jiangsu Suning seems to be a far more distant target since the Chinese club are reluctant to let him leave, since it would result in the Brazilian star missing the start of the new Chinese Super League campaign.
Furthermore, Inter will also be working on securing a new central defender, with talks being held over the situation of Stefan De Vrij, after it was revealed that he would not be renewing with Lazio. Updates are expected to arrive within the next few days. In short, it will be a busy January for Inter.
Alternatively, there could also be some outgoings, including the likes of Joao Mario and Marcelo Brozovic who have failed to impress. Gabigol is also looking for a return to Brazil while Andrea Pinamonti could be used as a sweetener in a deal for Bologna’s Simeone Verdi.
