Inter target Matteo Pessina is not for sale, with current club Atalanta informing the Nerazzurri today that they do not intend to accept any offers for the player.

This is according to Italian news outlet L’Interista, who claim that the 24-year-old midfielder is considered too important at the Gewiss Arena to be sold, and that La Dea will not sell him due to a clause in the deal which brought him to Bergamo from AC Milan.

Pessina is considered a key part of Gian Piero Gasperini’s squad as the club look to approach another season of competing domestically and in the Champions League, valued for his versatility and goalscoring contributions.

Additionally, should the club sell him this summer, half of any fee involved will go to Milan, due to a clause in his 2017 sale which states that 50% his future resale will go to the Rossoneri if he is sold before he makes one hundred appearances for Atalanta, something that he has not yet done.

Should the player reach the hundred-appearance mark, Milan will only be owed €3.6 million in the event that the player is sold.

For this reason, it is thought that a sale of the player would be economically infeasible for Atalanta in the summer, and this has been made clear to the Nerazzurri.
