Inter Milan will not consider offers of less than €35 million for young attacking midfielder Valentin Carboni.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews.
Transfer interest in Carboni has exploded in recent weeks.
Carboni may still only be eighteen years of age. He has just broken into the Monza starting eleven in the last few weeks.
But clubs in Italy and around Europe are starting to take note.
There is a sense that Carboni, always a player with a high reputation at youth team level in terms of potential, is starting to realize that potential within the senior game.
So clubs are showing a real interest in snatching the 18-year-old from Inter.
But the Nerazzurri also recognize the growth that Carboni has shown. And they are aiming to keep hold of him.
Inter Want At Least €35M To Consider Selling Valentin Carboni
What looks clear is that Carboni will stay at Monza until the end of the current season.
The Argentine is on loan at the Brianzoli on a season-long loan deal. There is no purchase option on behalf of the Lombard club, but the plan has always been to give Carboni a full season of playing time to develop.
And Monza coach Raffaele Palladino considers the teenager an important part of his plans for the rest of the season.
Having spent the first half of the campaign bedding Carboni in, he wants to get the best out of the young Argentine.
And as far as the future, Inter are genuinely thinking about Carboni as a first-team option for next season.
On the other hand, another loan could be possible next campaign. Carboni’s age means that there is still plenty of room for him to grow and develop.
The offers for Carboni so far have been in the region of €15-20 million.
But that wouldn’t be close to enough to make Inter consider selling the teenager.
If the Nerazzurri were to sell Carboni permanently, Tuttosport report that they would want at least €35 million to do so.
