Marotta's message to Perisic is clear: "If there is no offer, you stay and must show responsibilities for Inter"
Candreva has decided to leave Inter and this is a choice that Zhang will welcome without much resistance. His sale is in many ways logical after last summer’s signings of Keita and Politano.
The story of Ivan Perisic, on the other hand, is very different. The Croatian is not with the team and has the firm intention to leave by Thursday. Possibly to Arsenal. But at what price? This is where things are cold because the London club has not submitted an official offer despite rumors from England suggesting €5M loan plus option to buy at €30M. To make the story even more nebulous is the cold relationship between the Croatian and Ramadani, his agent and the one that took care of Perisic’s last contract extension with Inter.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the former Wolfsburg player’s nervousness was born in concomitance with the news about the imminent extension of Mauro Icardi, Inter’s most paid player. The words of Marotta last night showed that Inter do not intend to turn the other cheek. “There are no concrete offers and without it no one leaves,” said the former Juventus executive, as if to say that if Perisic does not change team in time, he must view his responsibilities at Inter as most important.
