Inter still have a keen interest in the future of their former captain Mauro Icardi, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Tuttosport’s print edition said the Nerazzurri stood to gain another €15 million if Paris Saint-Germain sold the striker back to Serie A, having already received €49.1 million in their deal with the Ligue 1 champions last summer.
Juventus are interested in a swap deal involving Paulo Dybala and this would automatically entitle Inter to the extra money, although the report did not explain why.
Icardi left Inter on a season-long loan to PSG in 2019 before joining permanently last year, following a six-year spell with the Nerazzurri.
Elsewhere, the Turin-based paper explained that Inter have many players out on loan who could help them raise funds ahead of the the summer transfer window.
Joao Mario could join Sporting CP on a permanent deal for €10 million, for instance, which would ensure a capital gain of €3.2 million for the Serie A leaders.
Radja Nainggolan is another expendable player but he is unlikely to re-sign for Cagliari, considering his annual salary of €4.5 million and because Inter would need a fee of €9.5 million to avoid a loss.
Inter also have five other loanees who could join their clubs permanently, namely Andreaw Gravillon (to Lorient for €6 million), Dalbert (to Rennes for €12 million), Valentino Lazaro (to Borussia Monchengladbach for €13.8 million), Michele Di Gregorio (to Monza for €7 million) and Federico Dimarco (to Hellas Verona for €6.5 million).
Dalbert is certain to return to the club in the summer though, having been on the fringes of Rennes’ squad for most of this season.
Inter then have Lorenzo Pirola (Monza), Gabriel Brazao (Real Oviedo), Georgios Vagiannidis (Sint-Truiden), Eddie Salcedo (Hellas Verona), Lucien Agoume (Spezia), Sebastiano Esposito (Venezia) and Darian Males (Basel) on loan elsewhere.
