Calciomercato.com: the Nerazzurri have already rejected a €3 million bid after deeming it to be too low, but Cagliari are not giving up on signing the midfielder.
Cagliari are preparing a second offer which will have a total value of €4.25 million, but it will be structured in a complex manner and not all of that will be cash. They would give Inter €2 million in cash and then give up the €2 million they were due to receive as a bonus payment for Nicolo Barella after he won the Serie A title.
Antonio Conte’s side would also have an option, valued at €250,000, to sign Cagliari youngster Riccardo Ladinetti in the next 18 months for a pre-agreed fee of €2.5 million. These are details the clubs will have to work on but both are keen to ensure talks over Nainggolan do not drag on too long.
But yeah, it`s rather possible that Cagliari are reading the news: Inter need to cut costs and have good chances of signing him on a free.
