Following the interest of Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United have also expressed their desire to sign Joao Mario and are reportedly willing to offer Juan Mata as part of the deal. It’s said that Inter have received this offer already and asked for Henrikh Mkihitaryan instead.
This revelation is being discussed by Corriere dello Sport. “If Inter are going to exchange him, it will have to be on their terms” as explained by the newspaper on the Portuguese international. In essence, Inter will not accept a loss, which is why the idea of a loan could be taken into consideration, to give the player time to showcase himself to help negotiations at the end of the season.
The Nerazzurri, as mentioned, like Mkihitaryan, although Mata would not be totally discarded as an option. However, Suning would have to make the decision based on who gets the final non-EU spot, since Ramires has also been linked with a move to Inter. Furthermore, Javier Pastore continues to flirt with the idea of leaving PSG for a return to Italy. The hunt for a trequartista continues.
