According to reports from Le10Sport, Inter have already initiated contact with the entourage of Thiago Mendes, the star of Lille, born in 1992, is also in the sights of Marseille. Although, it’s believed that Lille have already rejected Marseille once before, during the Summer when they tried to buy him. Therefore, Inter can be considered leaders in this race. Although that will not stop Marseille from returning next June.
The Nerazzurri are currently only trying to understand the margins for the manoeuvre before setting up negotiations to bring him to Milan.
It was Thiago Maia who stole the headlines a Summer ago when he moved from Santos to Lille, despite interest from Inter also being reported. But has since struggled to make a the expected impact, while Thiago Mendes has been consistently good. Of course there is a big age difference but right now Inter may prefer proven players for the midfield, similarly to the signings of Vecino and Borja Valero.
