Chelsea has not given up on Matias Vecino, but it will be difficult for Sarri to bring the Uruguayan to London.

“Inter consider Vecino to be an important player and Luciano Spalletti has done great work with the player, who was responsible for scoring the last-gasp goal against Lazio that sent Inter into the Champions League,” Corriere dello Sport wrote on Wednesday.

“In addition, he was also one of Uruguay’s best performers in the World Cup, as he was recorded to have recovered the most balls in comparison to his fellow countrymen.”

Therefore, nor Inter or Spalletti want to give him up. However, if an irrefutable offer does come in from the Blues, Spalletti would expect him to be replaced by a player of equal or greater quality.

After his post-Russia holidays, Vecino will return to training with the group on July 30th. In case he does depart, sporting director Piero Ausilio is working on ensuring that Inter are not left a man-down.

“Mateo Kovacic is everyone’s dream at Inter, but Lenadro Paredes is also considered suitable by Spalletti. However neither of these players are similar to Vecino and their arrivals would require the coach to change things around in midfield.”

It’s difficult to say how likely Vecino’s departure is at the moment, but it should become clearer in August. Meanwhile, Spalletti wants to try Brozovic-Vecino, with Nainggolan in midfield and is counting down the days until the market ends.
