Ezequiel Lavezzi to Inter? The parties have probably never been so close, even in past sessions of the transfer market. This is confirmed by La Gazzetta dello Sport today: “In the meeting between Alejandro Mazzoni and Alessandro Moggi in Milan, Piero Ausilio proposed an offer that includes a salary cap of 3.5 million Euros and various bonuses. Now they have to deal with Paris Saint Germain for the immediate transfer of the Argentinian international who asks for at least 4 million Euros. Obviously this economic barrier is fragile, since the player can leave for free at the end of the season. And that is why, at this stage, the club of Corso Vittorio Emanuele is formally negotiating for the summer: not to give way to the Parisian by getting involved in a bidding war. But it is clear that if between now and February 1, the club headed by Nasser Al-Khelaifi should lower their asking price, then, the strategy of Inter could change quickly and the player could also arrive right away.” Inter seems to be in the lead, clearly ahead of Barcelona and Chelsea.
According to the pink newspaper, Roberto Mancini would really appreciate the arrival of Pocho, who would be the definitive leap of quality for the Nerazzurri in the championship fight: “The player has always liked the idea of coming to Milan and has never hidden the feeling with Inter. In this way, the steps taken yesterday seem important. The offer from the financial point of view is closer to the expectations of Lavezzi, and with his approval in the pocket it will be easier to deal with the rich Parisian club.”
With the Argentine on the team, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mancini would decide to go with a 4-2-3-1, as it would make the former Napoli player able to combine quality and quantity. He should be the winger to the right, a kind of clone of Perisic who would act on the other end, then two of Ljajic, Jovetic and Icardi. At the same time, the option Eder becomes less likely. Will Lavezzi finally arrive to Inter?
