Inter are close to agreeing a loan deal with Nice for their outgoing full-back Dalbert, according to FcInterNews.it.
The Ligue 1 club are expected to resign the Brazilian for the 2019-20 season with an option to buy for €12-13 million.
Nice were due to receive 30% of any future transfer fee Inter received for Dalbert, so the Nerazzurri have subtracted this figure from their initial asking price.
The clubs have been in constant contact today and it means talks have almost reached their conclusion.
Dalbert realised his time at Inter was over after Antonio Conte asked his new employers to sign Cristiano Biraghi from Fiorentina.
The Viola were interested in signing him as part of a deal for the Italian, while Sampdoria also made an approach, but he has chosen to return to the club where he made his breakthrough in Europe.
Nice have agreed to pay Dalbert’s wages in full this season, allowing Inter to save €3 million before tax.
The 25-year-old moved in the opposite direction for €20 million plus bonuses in 2017 but never truly settled in Italy.
