On February 14th, Calciomercato explained Tahith Chong has put contract renewal talks with Manchester United on hold as he continues to attract interest from Inter Milan.
Later that day, we covered claims from Gazzetta dello Sport that Inter feel the ‘hard part is over’ after a ‘significant handshake’, as the Nerazzurri feel they are in a firm position to sign the 20-year-old on a free transfer in the summer.
FcInterNews now state the Dutchman and Inter are ‘getting closer and closer’ and there’s a five-year contract worth €1.5m, plus bonuses (to increase over the years), on the table.
The Italian club’s idea is to allow the player join a friendly club so that he can continue his development before being included in Inter’s plans.
According to the report, Antonio Conte’s side identified Sassuolo as a solution for Chong and he could be an ideal candidate to replace Jeremie Boga. The latter is on the radar of Chelsea and Napoli.
Chong’s agent and Sassuolo share a good relationship and even though there’s a possibility of the United wideman joining another club on loan for next season, Sassuolo remain on pole.
