Inter are hopeful of recouping a sizable amount of money from George Puscas after the Nerazzurri’s preseason tour in Asia, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Puscas was due to sign for Palermo on a permanent basis this summer but returned to his parent club after the Rosanero went bankrupt, thus defaulting on their payment.
The Romanian under-21 international will train at Appiano Gentile today and then fly out to Singapore tomorrow, where he will meet the rest of Antonio Conte’s first team.
It is highly unlikely he will stay for the entire season, though, with Inter hoping to raise ‘a few million’ from the striker’s departure.
Conte has called Puscas up to his Asian squad to ensure he is not too short of numbers up front, as Inter’s new boss waits for reinforcements in the transfer market.
Samuele Longo, Matteo Politano (who is injured), Sebastiano Esposito, Facundo Colidio and Edoardo Vergani are the only other forward players he has available, making it hard to start working on his new-look side.
Puscas scored four goals at last month’s European Under-21 Championships in Italy, helping Romania reach the semi-finals.
