Real Madrid were inches away from signing Exequiel Palacios from River Plate. But then injury happened. The Argentinian midfielder suffered a fracture to his fibula and that has stopped negotiations between these two clubs.
This is where Inter come in. In an interview with FCIN recently, the player’s agent confirmed that “Zanetti called me while we were negotiating with Real Madrid. Both he and I would be very honored to sign for Inter.”
It remains to understand what the situation is today but one thing is certain: Inter are willing to pay the €15M release clause. Palacios is available to join, Inter are interested, the transfer fee is super cheap for this kind of talent, Real Madrid have stopped for now… Everything is aligned so let’s make a deal eh?
