Pinamonti-Pellegri duo for the future anyone? Well, Inter hope to make it happen by Friday
They are 34 years old combined and are the future of Italian football as far as the attacking role is concerned. They are Andrea Pinamonti and Pietro Pellegri. The first is a player of Inter, under contract until 2021 while the second is a concrete transfer target for the Nerazzurri. Yesterday, sporting director Piero Ausilio had a new contact with Genoa president Preziosi waiting for a face-to-face meeting between all parties that will happen either today or tomorrow. It will be a decisive one because Inter hope to reach an agreement with the Grifione which plan to sell one of the players before Friday to make major capital gain for the budget. The prospect of having both Pinamonti, one for the future, and Pellegri, a boy that has a remarkable nose for goals and also the third youngest goalscorer in Serie A, intrigues a lot.
How much is he worth? On Pellegri’s reports, Inter scouts are all positive as they have been following the player since last year with increasing interest. The problem is his evaluation: Preziosi wanted 20 million but people that are close to him suggest to increase the demand seeing how Sampdoria wanted 30 million for Milan Skriniar. Because Genoa view Pellegri as a forward of the future and do not want to regret his departure. Knocking on the Rossoblu door were also Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Milan and Juventus. All think that Preziosi’s demand is a bit high but all remain interested. Inter could “over value” the player by including a couple of players like Biabiany, Ranocchia, Puscas or young players in the academy. Genoa were able to make important capital gains by giving Inter Thiago Motta and Diego Milito and the goal is to do the same. All by this Friday.
Two-year loan - To burn the competition, Inter are willing to sign an agreement similar to Juventus-Atalanta for Caldara, leaving Pellegri in GEnoa until he is older. He could continue playing for the Primavera and facing the first team. For how long? For a couple of seasons. Ausilio will speak about this with Preziosi who is interested in Biabiany and Puscas because convincing Ranocchia in just a few days won’t be easy. Margins of negotiation are there.
