Inter continue working to strengthen the right back position, probably the weakest link that the team has. The Portuguese right back Cedric Soares remains the priority of the club which has officially sent an offer of loan with option to buy to the Saints. Inter, in the meantime, already have an agreement with the player and for this reason, there is great optimism that this deal will cross the finish line before the closing of the January transfer market.
Obviously, Inter want to take precautions in case of complications and so there is a visit of Darmian’s agent at Inter headquarters. The Italian is only an alternative that Inter want to keep as plan B. The Nerazzurri would like to understand if there is any possibility that Manchester United could lower their demand which is €6M loan and another €6M for redemption. But Soares is much much closer and Inter really believe that things can close very soon.
