Inter Milan are still looking to complete the transfer of Davide Frattesi, but they don’t want to be embroiled in a bidding war.
As Il Corriere dello Sport (via FcInterNews) explains, the Nerazzurri have an agreement in principle with the player. However, the rest remains missing.
At the moment, the Italian giants are hoping to finalize the transfer of Marcelo Brozovic to Al-Nassr as quickly as possible.
The Beneamata would collect around 23 million euros from the operation. This is the sum the management intends to reinvest on Frattesi.
In order to sweeten the deal, Inter would add Samuele Mulattieri to the operation. The young striker impressed last season while on loan at Frosinone. He helped the club secure promotion to the top flight after winning the Serie B title.
Therefore, this should take the total to 35 million euros. This is the price that Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali had set.
Inter Milan Directors Refuse To Join A Public Auction For The Services Of Davide Frattesi
For their part, Inter directors Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio aren’t willing to go beyond this figure.
So if the Neroverdi are looking to draw Inter into a bidding war that features other top clubs, the Nerazzurri would simply drop out of the race.
Nevertheless, the source believes that the Benamata could still have a significant advantage in this transfer saga. After all, Frattesi himself had made it known that he’d like to join Inter Milan.
The two parties have reportedly agreed on personal terms. The 23-year-old would collect a yearly salary of 2.5 million euros. But it all depends on an agreement between the two clubs.
