An emerging report reveals what was the final straw that doomed the transfer of Udinese midfielder Lazar Samardzic to Inter Milan.

Last week, the 21-year-old expressed his delight upon his arrival in Milano. The youngster underwent his medical and was on the cusp of signing his contract with the club.

However, it all went downhill following the arrival of the player’s father at the club’s headquarters. The latter took over the negotiations on his son’s behalf from prominent agent Rafaela Pimenta.

Samardzic Sr. requested an additional commission of 300,000 euros. This wasn’t part of the initial accord between the Nerazzurri and Pimenta.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport (via FcInterNews) explains, this was an obstacle that Inter were working their way around. However, the Serbian star’s entourage kept pushing for extravagant requests.

As the source reveals, the player’s father also demanded a sell-on fee from a future resale. This proved to be the final straw in the negotiations.

Samardzic has since returned to Udinese, while Inter could resort to Stefano Sensi as their sixth midfielder.

The 28-year-old returned from a loan spell at Monza. The Nerazzurri were initially trying to find him a new destination this summer.

Requesting A Sell-On Fee Was The Final Nail In The Coffin Of The Negotiations Between Lazar Samardzic And Inter Milan

However, the recent developments on the Samardzic front could offer the Italian a new chance to prove himself at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.

The former Sassuolo and Palermo man joined the club in 2019. But sadly, recurring injury problems have been derailing his career.

On another note, the Nerazzurri will reportedly invest the cash previously allocated to the Samardzic transfer on a new defender rather than another midfielder.
