Inter will make a saving of around €20 million if central defender Diego Godin departs in the upcoming Summer transfer window according to a report from Italian news outlet CalcioMercato.com.
With Godin having struggled at the club since his arrival on a free transfer this past Summer, it is looking increasingly likely that he will bid farewell to the club at the end of the season.
Godin has struggled to adapt to manager Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 system and for this reason Inter will evaluate offers that come in for him in the coming months.
The 34-year-old currently earns €5 million net a season and with two years still left on his deal Inter will save approximately €20 million in gross wages if he departs.
The report goes on to state that if Godin does go on to leave, Inter could bring in Hellas Verona’s Marash Kumbulla to replace him. The young Albanian defender could cost around €20-25 million according to various reports.
