The Inter plans to have a quiet January are likely to go pear-shaped, as Juan Cuadrado is seriously considering having Achilles surgery, forcing them to search for a new man on the right wing. They might not necessarily add a wingback since they could use Matteo Darmian in such a role permanently. They’ll need to acquire a central defender in that case, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.
The Colombian has played lately but continues to be bothered by an inflammation. The conservative therapy hasn’t worked fully. He and the club are leaning toward the operation, although its timing has yet to be decided. It could happen shortly or closer to the start of the window. Denzel Dumfries is currently missing due to a minor thigh problem.
Either way, Inter will be forced to make a move to replace Cuadrado. He’ll be out for three months once he goes under the knife. Their top target is Tiago Djaló. They have an agreement in place with him for a five-year contract starting from June, as they plotted to sign him gratis. Lille could let him go for a small fee in January.
