Inter Eye Up Edinson Cavani As Lukaku Alternative

Inter are considering a move for Edinson Cavani should they fail to sign Romelu Lukaku, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The Nerazzurri are still in talks with Manchester United but the Premier League giants are not budging from their €85 million asking price.

Cavani has entered the final year of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain and could therefore be secured for a much lower fee.

The Uruguayan international would need to agree to a wage cut, though, considering he currently earns €12 million net plus bonuses in France.

Inter could only offer Cavani an annual salary worth €9 million, the same as they would have guaranteed Lukaku, but the forward might agree to this if he signed a three-year deal.

Suning would need him to choose Inter and force his hand with PSG, otherwise they would stand little chance of luring him to Milan.

Cavani is the first name on Inter’s list of alternatives to Lukaku, which also includes Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata and Valencia forward Rodrigo.

The Matador is the oldest option but he would also cost the least, albeit it is unlikely he would manage to get PSG to let him go free.

Inter are continuing to work on Lukaku in the meantime, with a new €60 million plus bonuses offer due to arrive in the coming days.

Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio cannot go beyond €60-65 million until they sell Mauro Icardi, meaning talks remain very difficult.
