Inter apparently accepted terms with Napoli forward Dries Mertens, while Bayern Munich missed the deadline to purchase Ivan Perisic.
Inter overhauled Chelsea for Mertens, and now they have officially entered into a two-year contract worth € 5 m a season, with a €4 m sign-on bonus, reported Corriere Della Sera.
That’s not it, La Repubblica wrote going one step forward, how this week a ‘common understanding’ was reached between the Nerazzurri and the Belgian members.
The two newspapers believe that the 32-year-old ‘s arrival on a free transfer would essentially pave the way for Lautaro Martinez to join Barcelona.
That’s because he’d be slotted right into the attack on Beneamat, alongside compatriot Romelu Lukaku.
On the other side, Inter will soon be unable to sign in Perisic.
That’s because Bayern missed the deadline to take up their €20 m option to permanently transfer the winger’s loan, according to Sky Sport Italia.
However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the broadcaster says that the German giants have been calling for more time.
