Inter interested in Levante defender Jose Manuel Rodriguez Benito, has release clause of 12 million
In Spain, they are certain: Jose Manuel Rodriguez Benito, also known as Chema, is liked very much at Inter but there are also Sunderland, Paris Saint Germain and Anderlecht. The Spanish, born in 1992, is very strong physically and stands tall at 190 centimeters so he is very good in the air, accompanied with already good techniques.
His club, however, has no intention of letting go of the player. Levante have recently rejected an offer (very low one) from English club Brighton. The y have had at least three other inquiries from Bundesliga clubs but Levante have been strongly against selling one of its better players.
However, there is a release clause in the player’s contract for 12 million euros. The good news is that it is very affordable for the club of Suning while the bad news is that it will also be affordable for other clubs that have been monitoring the defender for quite some time.
At this moment, there is nothing going on between Inter, Levante and his representatives. But if Sabatini really wants the defender, all he needs to do is sign a check of 12 million and Inter will not have to negotiate with his club. This potential deal is something that could happen in January.
