Inter Milan want to sign Bayern Munich goalkeeper Yann Sommer in time for their preseason tour of Japan.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that now that Andre Onana is out the door, the Nerazzurri want to get the 34-year-old Swiss international in without haste.

Inter and Manchester United will shortly complete a deal for Andre Onana.

Now more than ever, the Cameroonian as a Nerazzurri player only in the most official of senses. He has left the club’s training ground for the last time.

The agreement is all there and the Cameroonian should complete his medicals and sign his contract at Old Trafford soon.

Now, the Nerazzurri are already hard at work on signing replacements for the Cameroonian as well as captain Samir Handanovic.

Bayern keeper Yann Sommer is top of Inter’s list in terms of an experienced keeper.

Inter Milan Want To Bring Yann Sommer In In Time For Japan Tour

It is now obvious that Onana will not be part of Inter’s squad when they depart for their preseason tour of Japan on Sunday.

Neither will Handanovic.

Therefore, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi has made one thing very clear – he wants to make absolute certain that Sommer arrives before then.

The Nerazzurri will therefore spend the next couple days pushing the process of signing the ex-Borussia Monchengladbach veteran through.

There are still details that they have to wrap up.

The Swiss has a €6 million release clause in his contract with Bayern. Inter would ideally not want to pay that whole amount, but are ready to if needs must.

A good relationship with Bayern should make a deal fairly straightforward in any event.

Moreover, the Corriere reports, the fitness of Bayern captain Manuel Neuer will have little bearing on Sommer’s situation. The Bavarians are closing in on the signing of Giorgi Mamardashvili from Valencia one way or the other.

And with the player and his representatives, there are still a few things to sort out.

Sommer earns €5 million net per season at Bayern, but likely won’t Inter. The tax benefit of the Growth Decree will however aid the Nerazzurri in reaching an agreement on wages.

The 34-year-old will likely sign a two-year deal, potentially containing the option of an additional season.

In any event, Inter want to make sure the deal happens within the next couple days. There’s little time to spare before the team depart for Japan, and they want Sommer on the plane.
