On Sunday, there was a rather big announcement in Tuttosport, claiming that Inter were on the verge of signing Tahith Chong from Manchester United and giving him a five year contract.
Then a loan would be sorted out, at a club like Verona, Parma and Sassuolo, which has also been suggested by many other outlets.
This continues to be the trend, and Calciomercato.it suggest that Inter could be trying to scupper Chelsea with the idea of loaning Chong out to one of the teams.
The man at the centre of it all is Jeremie Boga, who is currently at the Serie A club after they bought him permanently from the Stamford Bridge side in 2018.
Boga has been somewhat of a revelation for Sassuolo this season, and there’s been a lot of talk of Chelsea potentially bringing him back through a clause (which differs depending on the source, but this article talks of a €10m buy back clause).
However, with Inter picking up Chong from Manchester United, Calciomercato.it suggest Antonio Conte’s side could try and loan the Dutchman to Sassuolo in hope of it helping them get a discount on the Ivory Coast international.
The demands right now would be of €25m, but all this seems a bit optimistic, especially since Sassuolo have yet managed to talk Chelsea out of getting rid of their clause.
