Inter wing-back Valentino Lazaro remains in the dark about his future at Borussia Monchelgbadach, as per comments from their sporting director today.
The Nerazzurri sent the Austria international back to the Bundesliga on a season-long loan last summer, with Die Fohlen possessing an option to sign him permanently for a reported €12 million.
Lazaro is thought to be unlikely to stay at Borussia Monchengladbach beyond the summer, as per reports earlier this month, but Max Eberl seemed to suggest no decision had been taken yet.
“Lazaro’s contract is a matter we’ll have to discuss in the coming days and weeks,” Eberl told German news outlet Kicker.
“There’s a risk of a financial collapse and we need to see what the team could be like.
“We won’t be making big signings but we’ll have a high-quality squad next season.”
Lazaro has made 24 appearances in all competitions for Borussia Monchengladbach, scoring twice and providing one assist in all competitions.
He played against his parent club Inter for Marco Rose’s side in the UEFA Champions League group stage in December, when the Nerazzurri secured a 3-2 win at Borussia-Park.
Lazaro joined Inter from Hertha BSC in the summer of 2019, but he made only 11 appearances under Antonio Conte last season before moving to Newcastle United for the second half of the campaign.
