Inter are hoping to have sold two players by the time next week is up, according to a report in the Italian print media today.

As has been reported by Tuttosport, Radja Nainggolan and Joao Mario could both not be Inter players by as soon as next week as their respective transfers begin to gather pace and take shape.

Inter appear to have agreed on an €8 million fee for Joao Mario and his personal terms with Benfica are also a done deal. There is still the matter of the clause Sporting Lisbon believe is active that would see Inter pay €30 million to the Liga NOS champions for selling Joao Mario to another Portuguese club.

As for Radja Nainggolan, Inter may be about to cave and pay him the severance pay he believes he is owed as he will be taking a pay cut to sign a permanent deal at Cagliari, the team he spent the last two seasons on loan at.
