There is to be a battle between Inter and Napoli for the signature of Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu according to Tuttosport’s latest report on the Spaniard’s situation amid continued interest from many clubs.
With the World Cup on the horizon and the ambition of making the squad, Deulofeu is now determined to leave the Catalan club in order to make his dream a reality.
The 24-year-old winger met with Barcelona officials yesterday to discuss his future at the Nou Camp where he revealed he was willing to move on and that he had an agreement in principal with Inter.
Tuttosport however insist that there is still no deal with Inter between the clubs due to them wanting different transfer formula’s. The Blaugrana would prefer an outright sale but Inter, due to Financial Fair Play, would prefer to sign the former Milan man on loan with an option to turn the move permanent.
Deulofeu is seen by Napoli as an alternative to Bologna’s Simone Verdi, who has also been linked with Inter in recent weeks.
