Simone Inzaghi made it clear that Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea should look elsewhere for their transfer targets, insisting that Inter’s ‘outbound market is closed.’
PSG have been heavily linked with a move for Milan Skinnier this summer and offered up to €60m, including various add-ons and bonuses, for the defender, but Inter refused to sell, holding firm with their €70m price tag.
Despite insistence from the French capital, a move does not appear to be on the horizon and Skriniar seems almost certain to stay at Inter, having agreed to remain with the club’s management.
Chelsea are big fans of talented youngster Cesare Casadei and media reports suggested that the Blues were ready to pay around €10m for the teenager, but again the Nerazzurri refused to sell. Whilst Casadei is not part of the first team yet, he doesn’t seem to be far away from breaking into it.
Inzaghi’s statement in today’s press conference is clear: “I don’t need to talk about it anymore because the inbound and outbound markets are closed.”
The assumption has long been that Inter would need to sell heavily this summer in order to offset some financial issues, but so far their most valuable sale has been Andrea Pinamonti’s €20m move to Sassuolo.
The Nerazzurri coach’s comments seem to suggest that this is no longer a major concern to the club, giving the club’s fans one less thing to worry about, at least for the time being.
