Having already made the mistake of letting one of their young talents go and see him blossom elsewhere (Nicolo Zaniolo), Inter aren’t ready to repeat it.
The latest talent to come out of their academy is Sebastiano Esposito, linked with clubs like Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund in the past, who has more recently caught the eye of Manchester City.
According to Calciomercato, both Pep Guardiola’s side and Paris Saint-Germain have been circling around the 16-year-old forward, who scored 16 goals in 14 U17s games this season before being promoted to the U19s in February.
However, despite interest from big clubs, Inter ‘aren’t scared’ about losing Esposito, as they believe they will reach an agreement ‘very soon’ with the youngster, tying him to the club until 2022.
This means that Manchester City and co. might have to wait a little longer if they truly are invested in acquiring the youngster.
It’s either that or they were just looking for an easy pick up ahead of him signing his first professional contract.
