Already five signings and now the assault to Jung. Inquiries for Cirigliano and Melano.
The German must be convinced before the eventual renewal. Now, only costs 2.5 million.
Botta signed yesterday for four years. That plus Campagnaro, Andreoli, Lexalt and Icardi
Milan – The present is fiery. The future, however, will go ahead. Inter must avoid worsening the current situation and continue working on the team for next season. And so far, they are doing so with a sense of urgency, working in advance, and with a plan. Not by chance that the name of Sebastian Jung has re-emerged, one that seemed to have already renewed with Eintracht. Instead, no extension of the contract, one that expires in 2014… at least not yet. This stalemate opens a scenario that is more than convenient: being close to the date that the contract will expire, Jung has a clause that can free him up at just 2.5 million euros. A bargain. Very affordable. But it does not end here because the club has also made its moves for Cirigliano (River Plate) and Melano (Belgrano).
New contact Inter, at the end of last week, contacted both Eintracht to understand the situation and also the player’s representatives: Jung recently said that by the end of March, everything will work out but in the meantime, the agent of the 22 year-old German continues to collect interest from the entire Europe. One of which is Inter as the Nerazzurri want Jung as the sixth piece of the puzzle for next season. It’s been some time now that the club of Moratti wanted to make a step forward with the latest being in January. The hesitation to renew and the legitimate desire to change scenery cause Inter to insist and convince the player to not change his feelings and desires by proposing a black and blue future.
Signed yesterday Inter are playing in advance for Sebastian Jung as they have done so with other signings that they have gotten. For next July, there will be five new players: Hugo Campagnaro, Marco Andreolli, Mauro Icardi, Diego Laxalt and the free agent Ruben Botta who yesterday signed a four-year deal at one million per year. To all these, Inter want another right back after Maicon. Zanetti is getting older and often fatigues too much. Jonathan has never convinced anyone. Nagatomo is here but he seems to be an “adapted” one (meaning the Japanese is more suited on the left wing). Therefore, at least at that price (we repeat: the clause is at 2.5 million if Jung does not renew), Inter want to make another signing for one of the strongest prospects in Europe. Sebastian Jung, despite being only 22 years old, is a pure right-back and seems to have always started for Under German national teams first and now at Eintracht since 2008. Sporting director Bruno Hubner has said: “Talks for a contract extension are positive, I am very confident.” Any renewal would be until 2016 but Inter are trying to convince the young player to change the atmosphere at the end of the season.
Other Argentinians The plans continue with two inquiries/requests. Daniel Passarella, president of River Plate, was asked by Inter to “borrow” Ezequiel Cirigliano for next season. The 1992-born midfielder is just staying on the bench than anything else. In January, Inter and River frequently spoke of Alvarez but the Argentinian did not want to return home and River only wanted him on loan. Maybe in June, all will sit at a table again. Another inquiry: Lucas Melano, Argentinian striker of Belgrano and the U-20 national team. If all happen, we have a revolution.
