Inter Milan are pessimistic about completing a deal to sign Udinese midfielder Lazar Samardzic.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri have given up on talks for today as the hope of resolving the impasse with the Serb’s entourage ebbs away.

Samardzic has been back in Udine for a couple days ago.

The 21-year-old former RB Leipzig midfielder had undergone his medicals on an Inter move last week. He then stayed in Milano for a couple more days.

However, talks between Inter and Samardzic’s representatives completely broke down.

Over the past few days, the parties have made some attempts to resolve their rift.

Throughout the period, rumours have suggested that there have been phone contacts, that other agents have gotten involved, and that Inter have refused all sorts of financial demands from Samardzic’s entourage.

What has been abundantly clear, in any event, is that the negotiations are still at standstill.

Reports earlier today suggested that now Samardzic’s club Udinese are trying to force the deal through.

The Friulani have as much of an interest as Inter in sorting the situation out. They want the cash windfall from selling Samardzic, plus signing Giovanni Fabbian.

Inter Pessimistic About Getting Lazar Samardzic Deal Back On Track

However, despite all the rumours about attempts to rectify the situation, there have been no positive developments.

Samardzic is still in Udine. There, he is training at the Friulani’s training centre to ensure he doesn’t lose his condition for the start of the season, albeit separately from his teammates.

The transfer might not be entirely dead in the water – at least not yet.

But it has now been several days with seemingly no progress in the situation.

Therefore, Sky report, Inter are losing hope virtually by the hour.

According to the broadcaster, at this stage around the Nerazzurri is pessimistic about Samardzic. They feel that there is little reason to expect the deal will happen at this point.
