Diego Godin has rejected Inter’s first offer with regard to severance pay according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
Godin has been in talks with Cagliari for several days over a move but before being able to complete a move to Sardinia, he needs to terminate his contract with Inter.
His representatives made contact with Inter yesterday to further negotiate their clients release because Godin has said yes to Cagliari but does not wish to lose out on money.
Godin currently earns €5.3 million a year from Inter and the Nerazzurri club offered him a sum between €3-4 million to rip up his contract but he did not accept the offer.
The report from the Milan based news outlet goes on to state that Godin would even be willing to stay with Inter despite the fact that he is now on the margins of the project.
