Inter & PSG talking about Joao Mario-Javier Pastore exchange
Inter and Paris Saint Germain are in talks over a possible exchange deal involving Joao Mario and Javier Pastore Tuttosport understand.
The Turin based outlet report that the idea is not a fantasy whatsoever and the clubs both have intermediaries working upon a deal which could come to fruition as early as the January mercato in little over two months time.
PSG’s Sporting Director Antero Henrique is a big fan of Joao Mario while the Nerazzurri view Argentine international Pastore as the man who can play directly behind compatriot Mauro Icardi in the number 10 role.
Moreover, recent reports in the media suggest Inter are interested in Jiangsu Suning’s Ramires, who like Pastore is a South American. However, Pastore holds an Italian passport which therefore means Inter can sign both players should they chose to do so.
Tuttosport also discuss the Arturo Vidal links, stating that in order for the Chilean to arrive, Inter would be required to make a big sacrifice to fund the former Juventus midfielder’s move from Bayern Munich. Moreover, if Inter were to want Vidal, they would be forced to chose between him and Ramires, due to only having the one non-EU quota space left.
