Inter Milan have reportedly decided to activate the release clause of Yann Sommer and free him from his contract with Bayern Munich.

The Nerazzurri were initially hoping to reach a bilateral agreement with the Bundesliga champions. However, triggering the release clause has now become an inevitable solution

As we reported last week, the Italians have been avoiding this scenario for two reasons. First, they prefer to sign the goalkeeper for lower figures. Second, they would like to maintain their excellent rapport with Bayern.

However, the Serie A campaign is only a couple of weeks away and Simone Inzaghi doesn’t have a reliable goalkeeper among his ranks.

The Nerazzurri sold Andre Onana to Man United earlier this summer while Samir Handanovic left the club after seeing out his contract.

Inter Milan Are Looking To Activate The Release Clause Of Bayern Munich Goalkeeper Yann Sommer

Therefore, Inter are desperate to sign Sommer as soon as possible and will resort to his release clause.

The source thus expects the Beneamata to finalize the deal on Friday. However, we’ll have to wait until the beginning of next week for the routine medical tests.

Moreover, the Italian giants must also sign a backup goalkeeper to serve as Sommer’s understudy.

As the report explains, Sampdoria’s Emil Audero remains an option but the club hasn’t made any concrete progress on this track. On the other hand, Shakhtar Donetsk are still blocking Anatoliy Trubin’s transfer.

Nevertheless, 24-year-old custodian Bento could become a viable solution. As the source reveals, Inter are keen admirers of the Brazilian. However, luring him away from Athletico Paranaense won’t be an easy task.
