Bayern Munich missed the deadline to purchase Ivan Perisic, while Inter allegedly agreed terms with Napoli forward Dries Mertens.
Inter overtook Chelsea for Mertens, and according to Corriere Della Sera reports, they have officially entered into a two-year contract worth € 5 m a season, with a €4 m sign-on bonus.
This week how a ‘common understanding’ was reached between the Nerazzurri and the Belgian members, wrote La Repubblica, and went a step further.
The 32-year-old ‘s arrival on a free transfer would essentially pave the way for Lautaro Martinez to join Barcelona, believes the two newspapers.
That’s because he’d be slotted right into the attack on Beneamat, alongside compatriot Romelu Lukaku.
On the other side, Inter will soon be unable to put in money on Perisic.
That’s because Bayern missed the deadline to take up their €20 m option to permanently transfer the winger’s loan, according to Sky Sport Italia.
Although, due to the coronavirus pandemic the broadcaster says that the German giants have been calling for more time.
