Earlier today, FcInterNews reported Everton have made an approach for Manchester United’s Tahith Chong ‘in the past few days.’
The winger’s contract at Old Trafford runs down after this season and Inter Milan have been heavily linked with the 20-year-old.
Saturday’s edition of Tuttosport states Chong has ‘said yes’ to Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta and their director of football Piero Ausilio.
The Dutchman is expected to sign a five-year contract at the San Siro and earn €2m a year in wages (including bonuses).
It’s claimed the Nerazzurri have abandoned the plan to send Chong out on loan to China and their idea is to allow him join a friendly club in Italy on a temporary deal.
This prospect doesn’t please the player’s entourage and therefore, Marotta and Ausilio will have to come up with an interesting technical project.
Parma, Sassuolo and Hellas Verona are interested in taking Chong on loan and a move to the latter may suit Inter for various reasons.
Verona manager Ivan Jurić’s playing style could suit the Manchester United player and Chong’s loan move [plus Federico Dimarco’s loan with redemption] could help Inter in signing Marash Kumbulla.
With Everton dragged into the situation for Chong, it remains to be seen if the Toffees can convince him with a better sporting project to join them over Inter.
