‘We have to wait, but not long’

Mirko Vucinic’s agent has confirmed talks with Inter and that completion of his swap deal with Fredy Guarin could happen soon.

Inter and Juventus are seen as in continuing negotiations this morning to conclude terms of agreement on a swap deal involving the two players.

On from a scheduled meeting this morning in a Milan hotel with directors from Juventus and Guarin’s agent, Vucinic’s representative briefly spoke to reporters.

“We will have to wait, but hopefully not for long,” Alessandro Lucci commented.

“Now, I am going to meet with Inter.”

Lucci has since been reported arriving at Inter’s headquarters for continued negotiations.

Meanwhile, the Gazzetta dello Sport report that Vucinic has agreed a contract until June 2016 with Inter paying €2.4m a season, representing a pay-cut from his believed Juve salary of €3.5m.

It is also reported that Guarin has agreed terms on a contract until June 2017, to pay out €3m per season.

Tuttosport are running the line that Juventus and Inter have also both seen rises in the value of their respective players, in negotiating terms of the swap.

It is seen that where Vucinic was originally valued at €7,450,000 by the Bianconeri and Guarin €8,250,000 by the Nerazzurri, both were tagged in talks yesterday at €13.5m. Guarin is seen as likely to pull in a further cash payment by Juve of between €1.5m and €2m, to further increase his official valuation in this deal up to €15.5m.
