Gazzetta dello Sport have revealed the figures of the deal that almost saw Andrea Pinamonti join Sassuolo on a permanent basis.
Inter directors Piero Ausilio and Walter Sabatini met with Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevalli at Inter headquarters yesterday and came to an agreement over a €7 million fee. The two clubs also agreed on a buy back clause of €10 million. Inter Primavera player Federico Valietti was also included in the deal and the clubs agreed on a fee of €2 million for him.
In the end the deal collapsed as Pinamonti was not convinced by the move due to being unsure what role he would hold in the Neroverdi team. Already down the pecking order at Inter, the striker did not wish to make the move to do the exact same at the MAPEI Stadium.
Pinamonti has proved himself to be a prolific goalscorer at all levels as he has worked his way through the youth ranks at Inter but is yet to find the net for the senior team in the few appearances he has made.
