According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter are preparing for complications in their quest to land Hernanes from Lazio. After a meeting earlier in the week between Erick Thohir and Claudio Lotito it was thought that the transaction could progress with Ibrahima Mbaye acting as a counterpart in the deal. However the agent of the Nerazzurri youth product (currently on loan at Livorno) has made it clear that contract talks will not be easy. Meanwhile, the solution could arrive from France. Monaco have made a proposal for forward Mauro Icardi, a loan with the right of redemption this summer. This could provide the cash for Inter to complete the Hernanes transfer if things should go wrong between Mbaye and Lazio.
