We now have a clearer image of what exactly happened between Inter and Cerci, and Milan and Atletico.
“In December the Nerazzurri set the agreement in principle with the class of ’87 winger,” reveals Panorama’s website. Inter “had accepted the proposal and was told Inter would be ready to take him to Appiano after the Christmas break. Inter would guarantee the same figures he received in La Liga, with a commitment to redeem him at the end of the season. The loan deal was however unwelcome at the top level of the Iberian club, who a week ago had bent before the pressure of Thohir and co. In Corso Vittorio Emanuele the player’s strong yes showed optimism in the feasibility of the deal.”
And so thought Mancini, but Galliani reached an agreement with the club first: “Adriano Galliani, in fact, in the last week wove the cloth with Atletico Madrid, finding agreement with the Madrid sporting director Andrea Berta to exchange loans lasting eighteen months with Fernando Torres. Milan must still talk to Cerci about the contract he will sign with the Diavoli, but it is most difficult from the Valmontonese winger to say no to the Rossoneri to wait for the Nerazzurri. Moreover, there are no certainties from Inter’s side.”
This is why Ausilio jumped for Podolski. To appease the wrath of Mancini. He was also made to look like a “fool,’ reports the web portal. The Nerazzurri are now moving to please the coach, and are only just starting with the German.
Any surprising bits in the new details? Are you happy with Ausilio? How about with our replacement for Cerci?
