According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Achraf Hakimi could join Chelsea or PSG within two weeks while Joao Mario’s move to Sporting CP is a done deal.
Both the Blues and the Ligue 1 giants have made offers to sign the Morocco international who is expected to leave the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the summer.
The Nerazzurri need to sell at least one of their top players to balance the books and are seeking a conspicuous cash offer for their star.
Both European giants have reportedly offered Inter €60m, but the asking price set by the Serie A champions is in the region of €80m.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter and Hakimi could make a decision about the future within two weeks. It’s not an ‘official’ deadline, but ‘the feeling is that the saga won’t last long.’
Inter are not willing to include Hakimi in a swap deal. Chelsea would be open to offering Emerson Palmieri to lower Hakimi’s price, but although the Nerazzurri remain interested in the Italy international, they want to negotiate a different deal and possibly sign the 26-year-old on loan with an option to buy.
Meantime Inter have also reached an agreement to sell Joao Mario to Sporting CP. The Portuguese side will reportedly pay €8m to make his loan move permanent.
