Henrikh Mkhitaryan has made the decision to join Inter on a free transfer in the summer rather than extend his contract with Roma.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that all that remains is for the 33-year-old to put pen to paper on a two-year contract with the Nerazzurri.
Inter have wasted no time in moving to get a deal done to sign Mkhitaryan, having identified the Armenian as a significant opportunity to reinforce their midfield with a free transfer.
The Giallorossi have pushed to extend the midfielder’s contract despite the interest of the Nerazzurri, but his mind looks to be made up and he will join Inter.
The 33-year-old will sign a two-year deal with Inter that will see him earn a net of €3.5 million per season, and there is total agreement on the terms of the deal with only the signature missing.
