Inter’s Uruguayan midfielder Matias Vecino has requested to leave the club this summer despite it seeming that he was destined to stay, according to a report in the Italian media.

As has been reported by, the player is adamant that his time with Inter has come to an end and he now wants to seek a new challenge.

Matias Vecino is one of the various fringe players that many believed Inter would sell this summer as they look to reduce the wage budget by 15% and end the window with a profit of at least €70 million.

The players desire to leave could mean that Inter will struggle to get as much money for the midfielder as they initially would have if a bid came in organically.

Inter certainly won’t stand in the players way, but it is not yet clear what sort of clubs, if any, are surveying the combative midfielder.
