Inter Expected To Keep Santon Despite Interest

Inter Expected To Keep Santon Despite Interest

Davide Santon is likely to stay at Inter this summer despite interest from several clubs around Europe, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Santon made just 15 appearances for the Nerazzurri during the 2017-18 campaign and has been widely criticised for a string of decisive mistakes, with many supporters calling for him to be sold before his contract expires next summer.

The 27 year-old has two suitors in Serie A in the form of Sampdoria and Parma, but La Liga side Getafe and Turkish outfit Trabzonspor are also said to be interested in acquiring his services.

However Inter are unwilling to sell Santon at the moment as he will be useful for them when it comes to naming their UEFA player list for next season’s UEFA Champions League.

UEFA’s regulations stipulate that four of the 25 places in a club’s list are reserved for players who have been registered with them for at least three seasons between the ages of 15 and 21, with a further four places reserved for players registered to another club from the same association.

Inter’s player list for the 2018-19 season is expected to be restricted to 21 as a punishment for breaking certain terms of their Financial Fair Play agreement with European football’s governing body, but they will still need to reserve at least one spot for a homegrown player.

As things stand Santon is the only player at the club who is eligible to take that spot, so Inter’s intention for the moment is to keep hold of him.
