Despite the arrival of the new Chinese investors, Inter Milan’s strategy on the transfer market won’t change much, as the Lombard club remains on UEFA’s pathfinder.
The nerazzurri will then have to sell some of their current players before being able to sign some new ones, and one of the main candidates to leave San Siro remains the 23-year-old defender Jeison Murillo.
Inter evaluate the Colombia international €30 million: too much for any Italian club, including AS Roma, who have shown an interest; not too much for Barcelona, but the blaugrana are about to sign Lyon 22-year-old Samuel Umtiti.
On the other hand, Chelsea could be a concrete option for the former Granada man: the Blues have contacted the player’s agent, but not Inter yet.
