The futures of Chilean duo Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sanchez at Inter remain in the balance, with the club having difficulty offloading the pair.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that Sanchez is a player who the club would consider keeping while Vidal is definitively in the shop window.
Despite the sale of Achraf Hakimi to Paris Saint-Germain, the Nerazzurri are still some ways away from meeting their financial targets for the summer, with a total transfer revenue of €80 million and a wage bill reduction by 15% thought to be the dictate of the club’s owners.
The club are hoping to avoid the sale of another major squad member, and have looked to the departures fringe members of the squad as desirable options to meet their objectives.
Sanchez could be allowed to leave, though the 32-year-old wants to stay and it is thought that new head coach Simone Inzaghi is an admirer and could keep him in the squad despite his high wages.
Vidal, meanwhile, is not thought to be in the club’s plans for next season and his wages are considered to be excessive, though as of yet the club have not been able to offload the 34-year-old as no interested clubs are able to pay the wages owed on the final year of his contract.
