Inter remain ahead in the race for Sandro Tonali despite AC Milan’s attempts to insert themselves into the equation, a report claims.
Gianluca Di Marzio told Sky (via MilanNews) on Tuesday night that Milan have returned to their effort to signTonali in recent days, taking advantage of the fact that Inter has not yet closed a deal.
The Rossoneri management presented an official offer to Cellino of a paid loan with the option to buy and though he said no, Milan want to try and see if they can stun their rivals.
According to journalist Alfredo Pedullà though, Inter still have a clear advantage over Milan in the race to the Italy international, so much so that they have had the formula accepted by Cellino.
It will be a loan with obligation to loan and at the moment there is about €5million between offer and demand, with the Nerazzurri offering €30million plus €5m in bonuses.
The player has not yet expressed his preference between the two Milan clubs, but it is clear that Inter moved earlier and with more conviction on the player.
