The more we are closer to the end of the season, the further away Mauro Icardi is from this Inter team. He is leaving this summer and one that gets closer is current Roma striker Edin Dzeko.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Paris Saint Germain are the biggest competition for Inter in this race. In the past few days, PSG have been exploring with the Bosnian striker himself: contact, even in depth, to understand the willingness to join the French league. So again, PSG are Inter’s biggest rival for Dzeko but the Nerazzurri remain the favorite because Marotta and Ausilio made the first move and they have the timing of this operation on their side.
Ahead for PSG, they will have a very long and complicated operation to complete to sell Cavani then and only then they can talk about Dzeko. But Inter can jump in with Roma right away, trying to set up an operation that fits everyone’s budget by June 30th. Sometimes haste can have a negative impact on an operation but not in this case. Inter are expected to push for Dzeko at the end of the season and in order to bring two teams closer to an agreement (Roma want €20M), a young player may be included in negotiation.
