Inter Milan will reportedly pay Bayern Munich a slightly higher sum than the value of the release clause in the contract of Yann Sommer.

As we reported earlier today, the Nerazzurri have finally had their breakthrough in the negotiations with the German champions.

The Italian giants are desperate to sign a goalkeeper as soon as possible following the departures of Samir Handanovic and Andre Onana.

The management identified Sommer as the best available candidate on the market. The Swiss is experienced, reliable and affordable.

Even though the Bavarians had been blocking the 34-year-old’s passage to Appiano Gentile, Inter insisted on reaching a bilateral agreement rather than triggering his release clause.

But while this clause is worth 6 million euros, Inter have reportedly paid an even higher figure.

According to SportBild via FcInterNews, the Nerazzurri will pay 6 million plus 750 thousands euros to seal the deal.

Inter Milan Will Splash An Even Higher Fee Than For Yann Sommer Than His Bayern Munich Release Clause

As the source explains, Inter Milan would have been able to activate the release clause if Manuel Neuer plays three matches in August.

The 2014 World Cup hero sustained an injury last winter, promoting the Bavarians to sign Sommer as a temporary replacement.

With the German international still struggling to regain his optimal physical condition, Inter opted against risking the whole operation, preferring to reach an agreement with Bayern and finalize the operation as soon as possible.

News reports expect Sommer to land in Italy over the weekend before undergoing his medical tests on Monday.
