Edinson Cavani wants €10 million a year from Inter to join them on a free transfer this Summer according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

The Paris Saint Germain and Uruguayan national team striker will leave his current employers after seven years of service at the end of next month when his contract expires.

He currently earns €12 million a year but is willing to drop down to the above amount but the report goes on to state that Inter chief executive Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta still deems that figure to be too big.

Despite Marotta deeming it too big, Inter will of course be helped by the taxation laws relating to players coming from outside of Italy.

Inter face competition from Atletico Madrid but the report states Inter have several things in their favour. For starters, Cavani would have less competition for game time than at Atletico Madrid, he already knows Italian football having previously played for Napoli among others and Inter are more certain of qualifying for the Champions League.
