Inter transfer market, Pavard on the way: latest news, what Marotta says

The Nerazzurri are close to signing the French defender from Bayern Munich

Inter ready for the final assault for Benjamin Pavard. The Nerazzurri are close to the 27-year-old French defender from Bayern Munich, a declared target for the transfer market. It is the managing director Beppe Marotta, on Radio Serie A, who provides updates and the latest news in real time on the negotiation. “Announcement today? No, not today. But we are in good shape. We moved with ambition, in this case it is not an illusion,” says the manager. Pavard, according to Bayern Munich, is worth around 30 million. In recent days, the German champions have expressed their intention to keep the player. Inter, strengthened by the defender’s liking, has not given up on the track and is about to go to checkers: “We aim high goals. We want strong people. We want a mix between young and old”, adds Marotta.

In the 2023 transfer market, Inter had to collect a series of ‘no’. Romelu Lukaku prefers Juventus, which however has not yet closed the deal with Chelsea, owner of the Belgian striker’s card. Gianluca Scamacca has left West Ham to go to Atalanta. And Lazar Samardzic, pursued by the Nerazzurri, has so far remained at Udinese. “What is ‘yes’ today becomes ‘no’ tomorrow: there are goals that you imagined you would achieve and then you don’t achieve”, says Marotta. Lukaku left a lot of disappointment, I’ll just say this. Where will he go? I don’t think he will come to Italy, there are only 10 days left until the transfer window is over. In general, seriousness and respect for roles have disappeared. Players who say yes today will say no tomorrow. But nothing surprises me anymore.”
