Inter Milan wingback Franco Carboni has verbally agreed on a loan deal to join River Plate this summer.

This according to Argentine football journalist Cesar Luis Merlo. He reported in a tweet that it will be an eighteen-month loan deal with a purchase option for the 21-year-old.

Argentine youth team international Carboni spent last season on loan with Monza and then Ternana.

Carboni joined the Brianzoli on loan during the January transfer window of the 2022-23 season.

The 21-year-old had been playing on loan with Cagliari for the first half of the campaign. The Rossoblu had signed Carboni on loan during the summer transfer window in 2022.

Carboni made thirteen appearances for the Sardinians in Serie B, as they won promotion straight back to Serie A after having been relegated from the top flight last season.

However, the Argentine made the switch to Monza in Serie A in the January window.

Reportedly, Inter considered the lack of playing time at Cagliari that he’d been getting to be a major factor in deciding on a different solution for Carboni.

Monza signed Carboni on an initial loan deal. The Lombard team had a purchase option on the Argentine worth €7 million.

Then, Inter had a buyback clause worth €8.5 million had Monza exercised their option.

Then last January, Carboni was on the move again. Once again, playing time was the main factor.

The Argentine made the switch to Ternana in Serie B.

There, Carboni featured regularly. He made a total of nineteen appearances over the second half of the campaign in the league.

Carboni has been in search of a new club this summer. And according to Argentine journalist Merlo, it will be in his home country of Argentina.

The journalist reports that River have secured the agreement with Carboni.

The Argentine giants will sign the 21-year-old on an eighteen-month loan deal. This will contain an option to sign him on a permanent basis when the loan ends.
