Benfica’s Lisandro Lopez’s loan switch to Inter is all done and he will be officially presented as an Inter player on Monday.
Gazzetta dello Sport report that the Nerazzurri have found a deal with the Portuguese giants that will see the 28-year-old join on a six month loan deal that includes an option for Inter to turn the move permanent for a fee of €9 million at the end of the loan. Moreover, there is a loan fee of €500,000 being paid to Benfica.
The Argentine, who holds a Spanish passport which therefore means he does not count against Inter’s non-EU quota, has been with Benfica since 2013 and typically been a backup option making just 54 appearances since his arrival with eight of those appearances having come this season.
Lopez will land in Milan on Sunday and visit the club’s Appiano Gentile training ground and be available to manager Luciano Spalletti from Monday onwards.
