West Ham Pondering €25 M Offer For Joao Mario
Kondogbia has already been confirmed by Valencia and Nagatomo will soon make his move to Galatasaray permanent, as Inter continue to sell surplus players. One of these is certainly Joao Mario.
The Portuguese international is back from his loan experience at West Ham and Milano-based newspaper reports today that Gazzetta dello Sport with the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini, West Ham could make an offer of at least €25 million.
According to the report Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, will also be keeping an eye on Joao Mario’s World Cup performances with an eye to bringing him to Old Trafford. The World Cup could further boost interest in the young Portuguese midfielder, thus helping Suning find buyers and create a bidding war.
Inter will most likely make a loss on the player when and if they sell him but if the Nerazzurri are able to meet the terms set out in their agreement with UEFA regareding Financial Fair Play before the end on June, his sale would be a bonus to the summer transfer market coffers, which they will need to spend in order to compete in multiple tournaments next season.
