Several media outlets in Italy report that Inter have completed the signing of Roma’s Radja Nainggolan for €24 million cash as well as Primavera player Nicoló Zaniolo and full-back Davide Santon.
Rome-based media outlet Il Tempo broke the news that Roma and Inter have agreed to include Davide Santon into the deal after having agreed on the Primavera Zaniolo yesterday. The total value of the deal is estimated to be worth close to €40 million however Inter will ‘only’ pay €24 million cash with Zaniolo and Santon combined are valued at around €16 million.
According to the report, only details remain such as Roma agreeing terms with Santon’s agent, which is considered to be a formality. This means that Inter can count the transfer of the duo as an income worth €16 million which further helps them satisfy the requirement of making a €45 million capital gain on player transfers out set out in the settlement agreement with UEFA whilst Roma fill their coffers with €24 million effectively financing the imminent Pastore signing.
Since then Sky Sport Italia’s Mario Giunta as well as SportItalia’s Alfredo Pedullá have confirmed this report which further adds weight to its credibility.
