The future of Yaya Toure is still unclear, although he has been repeatedly linked to Inter in the last couple of months.
The Serie A club have sorted out their ownership issue, with Chinese investors Suning Commerce Group now expected to fund the transfer of Toure.
Inter, however, need to be wary of financial fair play rules, and matching Toure’s current wages of €14m a year could be an issue.
According to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning could sign Toure this summer, and then possibly loan him to the Serie A giants.
That’d mean Inter only pay a part of his wages, and avoid facing financial fair play implications.
Alternatively, Inter could sign Toure directly, and pay his wages through sponsorship.
Earlier, there were reports of Toure taking a wage cut to sign for Inter, and that he already passed him medical. It seems the Italian media are in top form, and have covered every possible angle to this story.
