Inter Milan are not likely to include 19-year-old attacking midfielder Valentin Carboni in any player-plus-cash offers this summer.

Today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, report that the 19-year-old’s high valuation would make any such bids impractical.

Inter are gearing up for the summer transfer window.

The Nerazzurri have some big targets in mind – these include Genoa’s Albert Gudmundsson and Torino’s Alessandro Buongiorno.

These players won’t come cheap, however. And Inter will be working within tight budgetary restrictions, as has been the case for the past several summer transfer windows.

Therefore, one strategy that the Nerazzurri could employ would be to make cash-plus-player offers.

That would allow Inter to reach the asking price for key targets while chipping away at the cash amount.

And there are players on Inter’s books who could be useful in this respect. These include Gaetano Oristanio, Martin Satriano, and brothers Francesco Pio and Sebastiano Esposito.

But teenage Argentine international Carboni is unlikely to be among them.

Why Inter Won’t Make Any Cash-Plus-Player Offers Including Valentin Carboni

One way or another, Inter don’t want to lose control of Carboni for the future.

The Argentine is a player who the Nerazzurri see as part of the plans going forward.

But that wouldn’t, in and of itself, rule out selling Carboni.

Inter sold midfielder Giovanni Fabbian to Bologna last summer, for example. But the Nerazzurri inserted a buyback clause in that deal.

Therefore, Inter could bring Fabbian back in the summer of 2025 if they want him in their first-team squad.

So, on paper, a similar deal to that could be considered with Carboni.

But as the Corriere explain, the finance involved would make such a deal implausible.

Inter value Carboni very highly. They have already rejected a bid worth 20 million from Fiorentina for the 19-year-old, for example. They want more.

And the prospect of “selling” Carboni to another club with a buyback clause would therefore mean that Inter would need to set the buyback at an even higher amount.

That would likely make it entirely impractical for the Nerazzurri to purchase Carboni back in the future.
