Inter Milan still haven’t gotten a deal to sign Bayern Munich goalkeeper Yann Sommer over the line for a couple reasons.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who identify Bayern’s reluctance to sell the Swiss without first signing a replacement, and a lack of agreement on a fee between the clubs as the two main ones.

Inter have been trying to finally get a move for Sommer over the line in recent days.

The Nerazzurri have been in talks with both the player and with Bayern for a few weeks now.

Sommer is the player who Inter want to sign to replace Andre Onana for the 2023-24 season. And the fact that the Cameroonian has now left to join Manchester United should be the trigger for a move for Sommer.

But there are two main stumbling blocks that the Nerazzurri must get past before they wrap up a deal for Sommer.

Transfer Fee Yet To Be Agreed Between Inter & Bayern For Sommer

Sommer has a release clause in his deal with Bayern worth €6 million.

The German champions don’t really want to sell the Swiss for an amount lower than that, at least to date.

However, Inter have been aiming to chip away at that amount. The Nerazzurri have been offering around €4 million.

Inter feel that particularly given Sommer’s desire for the move to happen, they can agree a deal with Bayern lower than the release clause.

But as of yet, the distance between the clubs remains.

Bayern Want To Sign New Neuer Backup First

The other major outstanding issue in the talks for Sommer is that Bayern haven’t yet signed a replacement.

The Bavarians have been aiming for Valancia’s Giorgi Mamardashvili. However, those talks haven’t led anywhere yet.

With Manuel Neuer still out injured, Sommer is the only backup option in Bayern’s squad.

The Bavarians will be reluctant to let go of the 34-year-old without either getting Neuer back to full fitness, or signing a new backup keeper.

Once they do so, however, Bayern should be more willing to work with Inter on making a deal for Sommer happen.
