Inter Will Attempt To Offload Midfielders Arturo Vidal & Radja Nainggolan To Reduce Wage Bill, Italian Media Suggest
Inter are focusing on cutting costs and bringing down the wage bill this summer, so will try to move midfielders Arturo Vidal and Radja Nainggolan on.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Repubblica, owners Suning are determined to avoid another season being undermined by financial worries and have prioritised bringing spending down this year by identifying high earners who can be offloaded.
The Nerazzurri will attempt to sell players wherever possible, but may resort to terminating contracts early in order to bring the wage bill down and facilitate moves, as seen with Joao Mario.
High on the list is Belgian midfielder Nainggolan, who is keen to return to former club Cagliari after failing to establish himself at Inter. The club are in discussions with the 33-year-old to find a severance package before he becomes a free agent and moves to Sardinia.
Elsewhere, fellow central midfielder Vidal is one of the club’s highest earners but endured an inconsistent first season upon arriving from Barcelona last year.
Inter are keen to move him on and the Chile international could be set for a move to Argentine club Boca Juniors.
