Scamacca signs renewal with Sassuolo amid interest from Inter and Milan

by | Apr 13, 2022 17:39

Gianluca Scamacca has signed a contract renewal with Sassuolo, putting a dent in Inter and Milan’s work to sign him this summer.

The 23-year-old Italian striker is one of the most exciting youngsters in Serie A and he seems destined for a move to a big club soon. Many believe the Neroverdi forward is the right man to replace Ciro Immobile in the Italian national team, revitalising the squad with young talent.

As announced by Sassuolo, Scamacca has renewed his contract with the club until 2026, putting the Neroverdi in a strong negotiating position ahead of the summer transfer window.

Inter are in pole position to secure his signature in the summer and the contract renewal hasn’t changed this, although it may force them to pay more for his signature, Calciomercato.com report. Milan are also keen to pick him up but are less likely to sign him than their intercity rivals.

The 23-year-old Scamacca has scored 13 goals in 30 Serie A appearances this season.

    If only Maldini could pull another Tonali-esque steal from under Inter’s nose.

    It’s very unlikely though, as we have too many holes in the squad and little money. I would choose an attacking midfielder and right winger instead of investing on a striker if it comes to that choice. Those are more important and Origi would do.

    On the other hand, I don’t see Inter signing him unless they sell Lautaro. I doubt Scamacca would want to fight it out with him and Dzeko plus Correa.

    Inter don’t invest much in Italian players, never have. Their whole ethos is about giving space to foreign players which is where their name derives from. Hence little to contribute to the Nazionale. Milan have much greater chance of signing him at some point.

    Now, raspadori and berardi mustn’t be sold either

    @Fatecisognare what are you talking about? Barella, Vieri? Although not many, those transfer makes your entire arguments invalid

    @Azzkisr, his history on Inter is correct and his summation of current Inter is also correct. They may have an Italian player here or there in the starting XI once in a while, but it’s far from their ethos to have an Italian heavy squad.

    how much is his value after this extension? I’d go all out for darwin nunez of benfica if it’s only 5-10 million differences, at least nunez has already proven in UCL

    @mikeysteel and Fatecisognare, with Bastoni, Barella almost always starting and D’Ambrosio and Di Marco sometimes too, while Gags and occasionally Rano coming on from the bench, Inter has about as many Italian players in use as other top teams.

    Milan started last game against Bologna with 2 Italians in their start elleven (Calabria and Tonalli), while Juve also had 2 against Cagliari (Cheillini and Pellegrini). Even Roma also just had 2.
    Although Inters history states the club wqas founded to welcome foreign players, the use of few Italians is just the development of the football.

    Scamacca is just as likely to end up in Inter as Milan or elsewhere. In fact he should already have a personal agreement. But that is rumors for now.
    But, let me ask this: With inflated prices for hyped Italians while not look elsewhere? Is Zaniolo worth the sometimes 60-70 million euros? Or should you try do a piece of smart business with another – maybe foreign – player. If the price is right, the business can be done between Italian top clubs and top players.

    This is a common tactic for European clubs. Sign an extension to add value to the transfer.

    @Fatecisognare: that was before Marotta came to the club, so you might want to update your discourse.

    How can you ignore signings like Bastoni and Sensi? Scamacca and Frattesi are next.

    Di Marco too?

    For some reason my comment isn’t allowed to be posted, but all I am saying is the truth.if he or berardi etc end up at inter or the big clubs,they will warm the bench,which in turn will negatively impact the national team Moise Kean is an example,he sits on the bench,and his development is wasted.
