Midfielder Piotr Zielinski is ready to sign for Inter Milan for a lower offer than Napoli have put on the table.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper anticipate that the 29-year-old will sign a deal worth €4.5 million net per season with the Nerazzurri.
It now looks very clear that Zielinski will be an Inter player at the start of next season.
Unless there are any shock twists, the Polish international will sign for the Nerazzurri on a free transfer when his contract with his current club Napoli runs out at the end of June.
It is not as though the Partenopei did not try and extend Zielinski’s contract.
There were contract talks between the player and club during the fall. However, for one reason or another, these broke down.
And so Inter moved in and have convinced Zielinski to take his next step with them.
Piotr Zielinski Accepts Lower Offer To Sign With Inter Than Napoli Contract Extension Bid
Inter’s offer to Zielinski is worth around €4.5 million net per season plus add-ons.
This is the bid that the Nerazzurri put forward to the former Udinese and Empoli midfielder’s representatives.
And according to widespread reports, the Pole is ready to accept this amount.
Meanwhile, Tuttosport reports, Napoli have in fact offer Zielinski higher wages than that to stay past the end of the season.
The Turin-based newspaper report that, during January, Napoli made a last-ditch contract extension offer to the 29-year-old. This would have been worth around €5 million net per season.
However, it seems that Zielinski has already made his decision.
Despite the prospect of earning more money by staying in Napoli, the Pole wants Inter. So he will accept the Nerazzurri’s offer even if it means passing up on some additional cash.
