Inter and Roma could make up the difference in talks over a swap deal involving Matteo Politano and Leonardo Spinazzola by including an obligation to buy according to a report from FCInterNews.it,
Politano has a value against Inter’s books of €19 million whilst Spinazzola has a value of €26 million against Roma’s. The €7 million gap could be reduced by the inclusion of an obligation to buy at the end of the season, something which would see both clubs manage to record a capital gain.
Inter had initially been demanding €20-25 million for 26-year-old Politano but it soon became apparent that Roma nor AC Milan, who also showed an interest, would not be meeting their demands for the former Sassuolo man.
Following Nicolo Zaniolo’s season ending injury, Roma then proposed a swap deal involving Spinazzola, something Inter opened themselves up to due to their desire to add a new left wing back to their ranks this month.
In short, there is still some work needing done before a deal can be finalised but the work already conducted would appear to suggest a deal can be finalised soon.
