Inter want to close for Rodrigo De Paul now (but will leave him at Udinese until summer) as the player is now considered to be priority of the club
After days of rumors, Inter are ready to come out and decisively launch the attack on Rodrigo De Paul of Udinese. The idea is to acquire him now to avoid crazy auction or the crazy summer price increase and leave him in Friuli until the end of the season. This hypothesis would satisfy everyone: Udinese are fighting to stay up in Serie A and have no intention of selling their best player while De Paul does not want to end his Bianconeri experience right now. And then there is Inter which will have to sell before buy in January.
Last summer, Udinese refused an offer of €20M from Fiorentina and currently value its star at between €25M-€30M which does not scare Inter away. However, the club will consider the possibility of including some players (Pinamonti, Vanheusden for example) to lower cash demand. In short, De Paul has now become a priority for Inter.
