Valentino Lazaro seems unlikely to have his loan move with Borussia Monchengladbach made permanent, according to a report in the Italian media today.
As per FcInterNews.it, the Bundesliga outfit paid €1.2 million for Lazaro’s initial loan move and would have to pay Inter €12-13 million to sign him permanently.
Lazaro has suffered a few injuries since joining Borussia Monchengladbach and his physical gremlins are making the club doubtful about such an investment.
In addition to this, Marco Rose’s imminent departure to Borussia Dortmund means they will have a new head coach next season, who is likely to want to make his own decisions regarding recruitment.
No decision has been made yet regarding Lazaro’s future, the report continued, as per comments made by Borussia Monchengladbach’s director Max Eberl recently.
The Austrian international would be an important signing as he has shown he can be decisive for Rose’s side, but Lazaro’s future remains uncertain.
The 25-year-old joined Borussia Monchengladbach on a season-long loan last summer and has since made 20 appearances in all competitions, including one against Inter in the UEFA Champions League.
