In addition to raising their cash offer by €20 million, the European champions will be willing to insert a player of the Nerazzurri’s choice as a makeweight, according to unnamed sources in London the report claims.
The report states that the Blues are optimistic that this offer will be enough to convince Inter, and that they can quickly get a deal over the line for the striker, while the Nerazzurri are still pondering what to do in the face of a massive offer.
