Complicated for Mustafi, Mangala still stop option for defense
Negotiation for Mustafi remains complicated. The Corriere dello Sport asks that “Arsenal paid 40 million for Mustafi just over a year ago, why would they just let him go on loan now?” The formula that Gunners will probably consider is loan plus obligation to sign at a substantial figure and this is something that Inter are not willing to do.
Precisely of this reason that Mangala is still the top target for the Nerazzurri. The City defender has already said yes to the club. After a series of meeting with the intermediaries of this negotiation, there is optimism that the English club could soon accept to let the French go out on loan.
