Monaco Consider Double Deal For Inter Outcasts Miranda & Joao Mario

Monaco are considering a double swoop for Inter outcasts Miranda and Joao Mario, according to

The French side sent representatives to Milan on Tuesday to explore the possibility of signing both, which is thought to be very difficult but not impossible.

Head coach Leonardo Jardim is keen to sign Joao Mario after coaching him as a youngster with Sporting Lisbon.

Miranda also has interest from Marseille, but Inter have not received any kind of approach from them yet.

Monaco have already made Inter an offer for Joao Mario, proposing a loan deal worth €3 million with an option to buy for €15 million.

The option would become an obligation if the midfielder made a specific number of appearances, but Inter want a permanent deal or a more certain obligation deal.

West Ham and Leicester have made approaches for the 26-year-old while Nelio Lucas is exploring the Chinese market on Mario’s behalf.

Monaco have been in contact with Miranda’s representatives since May and recently offered the Brazilian a two-year deal.

The defender wants to stay in Europe and Inter are open to selling, but they want a €3-5 million fee despite Miranda’s contract running out next summer.

Miranda and Joao Mario have become friends off the pitch since they started playing together in 2016, and it is not impossible they could continue to be teammates in France next year.
