Inter continue to lead the race for Davide Frattesi, but Milan are trying to close the gap. The Sassuolo midfielder alluded to his preference in an interview, but the Nerazzurri must wait for Marcelo Brozovic to join Al-Nassr before finalizing the deal. But he might take his time to see whether Barcelona will bid for him as well, Alfredo Pedullà relays.
The Neroverdi chief Giovanni Carnevali excluded the Rossoneri from the fray in his most recent remarks. That’s because they have not formally met with the sellers and have had only indirect contacts thus far. That should change soon. The summit should take place Wednesday.
Neither Inter nor Milan have matched Sassuolo’s 40M asking price. The two Derby della Madonnina rivals will likely get it done with a €30/32M fee plus a young striker. The Emilian side likes both Samuele Mulattieri and Lorenzo Colombo. They might acquire the former regardless.
The Neroverdi will convene with La Beneamata’s brass again later in the week as well. It could be the decisive rendezvous if Brozovic has departed by then. The Nerazzurri were the first to move concretely, but the player would accept joining their crosstown foes if their offer was better for him and his current club. Juventus and Roma are lagging behind the two other Serie A giants at this stage.
Our Take on Frattesi, Inter, and Milan
As a tactical fit, he’s more suitable for the former, but the latter could be faster to act and more armed with cash, as Sandro Tonali’s sale to Newcastle seems a fait accompli already.
