The upcoming week of negotiations will likely be when Inter either secure the signing of Joaquin Correa from Lazio or are forced to turn their attentions elsewhere, according to a report in the Italian media today.
As has been reported by the Roman daily newspaper, Corriere dello Sport, Inter made an initial offer to Lazio of €5 million for the one-year loan and a €25 million fee to make the move permanent in the following summer.
Lazio President Claudio Lotito is believed to want a permanent sale this summer though, because he can get more money if the player is sold completely right now.
The Biancocelesti want a fee nearing €40 million for Joaquin Correa but Inter clearly feel that as time wears on, Lazio will be forced into accepting a lower fee as the player clearly wants to leave.
The coming week will see Inter go back to Lazio with another official offer which Joaquin Correa will be hoping meets his clubs’ demands.
