With the Champions League locked up and in a safe, Inter will start the assault on Manchester City defender Danilo. According to Tuttosport, the Brazilian right back is the favorite of Ausilio and Marotta.
Danilo came to City in 2017 from Real Madrid after winning two Champions League titles, one La Liga title and has a contract with the English club until 2022. But this year, he has seen his minutes on a strong decline: only 10 league appearances, 9 in domestic cup competitions and 2 in the Champions League with only 1 goal. This is why the Brazilian has already given his consent to a possible future in Italy.
For him, Inter would be willing to spend about €20M, a figure that City will aim to increase to €30M, the same amount that they spent to sign him from Real Madrid. However, finding an agreement between two clubs will not be the difficult part of the negotiation. The obstacle will be related to Danilo’s wage who is making €4.5M plus bonuses, too high for Inter’s financial parameters. But with the Champions League, everything should be a bit smoother, easier.
Also, let’s not forget the name of Matteo Darmian. The versatility of the Italian fullback could be very useful if Dalbert leaves this summer.
