Inter are set to miss out on the signing of Borussia Monchengladbach defender Mathias Ginter, who is instead close to signing for Bayern Munich.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri are no longer in the race for the 28-year-old who looks to be bound for Bayern.

Ginter’s current contract with Gladbach expires at the end of June, and with the German having announced that he will not extend his deal he is available on a free transfer during the summer transfer window.

The Nerazzurri had been one of the clubs following Ginter most closely with a view to potentially bringing him in for next season when he’s out of contract.

However, Bayern have pushed to sign him for next season, and now everything looks to be in place for Ginter to join the Bavarian giants during the summer window.
