Inter has only ever been an alternative for Edinson Cavani who has long agreed on terms with Atletico Madrid, according to recent reports.
On June 30 the striker will be a free agent with his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, so they can sign for another club already.
Dries Mertens planned to elongate his agreement with Napoli and right after that former teammate Ander Herrera told AS that Cavani “would like to play in Spain.”
Months before Cavani had signed a pre-contract deal with Atletico Madrid thus he was never really bound for San Siro anyway, says Inter transfer specialists gossip fcinternews.it.
It is claimed that Cavani was an option considered, after the Mertens turnaround, but negotiations never really got underway.
If Atletico Madrid is willing to deposit the current contract or is seeking to renegotiate the terms in a post-COVID-19 environment remains to be seen.
The Uruguay international had agreed on a two-year deal worth 10 million euros per season.
