Romano -
Benfica director Rui Costa met with Inter today in Milano to sign João Mario, he’s the main target.

Personal terms agreed until June 2026 and Inter open to sell João - lawyers now at work to understand if possible despite the clause in the old contract with Sporting.

Gazzetta reports Inter might have to just terminate his contract and let him walk for free to Benfica because of the clause. 😂

it doesn't have sense, Sporting offered us 4 mln euro recently and now we are going to release him for free? If we cannot avoid the clause, let him go for free and sell random Primavera kid for 7.5 mln euro or let them take Dalbert.

Yeah I think they might circumvent the clause in some way.

Or a plot by Inter and Benfica against Sporting to forfeit the clause? We are like okay, then we just terminate the contract and the player moves for free. So then Sporting is like okay, we forfeit the clause so at least Benfica needs to pay something for the player.

I don't know, absolutely idiotic if this contract termination happens and we get nothing for Joao Mario.

Maybe a friendly between the clubs at some year and Benfica pays the money in advance?

i suspect its just sensationaalist reporting.. lets not forget this clause was ruled illegal in Icardi's casae recently, as third party influence

Di Marzio - the meeting between the Portuguese player, his agent Federico Pastorello and the Nerazzurri managers has just ended to sign the termination of the contract and define the final aspects of his transfer to Benfica.

there's talk that they'll 'owe' us 7.5m on another transfer, so i guess it just helps us avoid the legal hassle

It's really interesting GdS have been a really good source for Inter in the last two seasons. First to report Kolarov to Inter, Alexis-Dzeko swap offer, separation with Conte, PSG offer for Hakimi, Kolarov renewal and now Joao Mario contract termination. They still jump to call a deal done way too fast but it doesn't change the fact they have some good sources inside the club.

I don't trust an IOU from another team. I think we're the only ones honorable/dumb enough to actually follow through with something like that.
They might have some documentation in writing but of course they dont announce it. It will be a prima facie evidence that they are circumventing the clause under the agreement with Sporting.

Its just too stupid to let him go for free while inter can sell him to sporting for 4 million or try sell him to another club. The window transfer is still long
