Inter’s young forward Sebastiano Esposito expressed his delight at signing a new three-year deal with the Nerazzurri this morning.

Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and both Manchester clubs had all made approaches for the 16-year-old in recent months after a hugely impressive 2018-19 season.

Roma, Cagliari and Sassuolo had also asked for the player during talks for Edin Dzeko, Nicolo Barella and Stefano Sensi, but Inter said no to everyone.

“I’m happy, I always wanted to extend my contract with Inter,” Esposito told TuttoMercatoWeb earlier.

Sassuolo were willing to value the forward at €10 million as part of their deal for Sensi, but Inter want to give the player a chance under Antonio Conte.

Esposito cannot sign a deal which is longer than three years because he is under-18, but he will be tied to the club until 2022 nonetheless.

He scored a hat-trick as Inter won the under-17 league title last month and also made his first-team debut under Luciano Spalletti in March, becoming the club’s youngest ever player in European competition.

Esposito and his entourage are expected at Inter’s offices any minute to put pen to paper on the new deal.
