Inter are considering selling Uruguayan defender Diego Godin in the summer, which could save the club around €20 million, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

The report details how the 34-year-old veteran, who was previously a star at Atletico Madrid under Diego Simeone, has struggled to adapt to coach Antonio Conte’s three-man defensive set up this season.

The 20-year-old Italian Alessandro Bastoni has managed to push Godin out of the starting eleven on a number of occasions, showing how his stock has fallen in Milan.

The player has many fans in Europe, the report continues, which could benefit Inter greatly. Godin earns around €5 million net which translates to €10 million gross per season, and is contracted to the club until 2022, so selling him could save the Nerazzurri around €20 million in expenditure.

Given that Godin was signed on a free transfer, any transfer fee received would be added to the requirement of making capital gains. One club being touted as being interested in him is Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.
