Inter have offered €18m to sign Lucas, said the player’s agent, but Sao Paulo “immediately rejected the proposal.”
The Nerazzurri’s interest in the Brazilian is well known and it seems as if they will have to raise more funds to win this bidding war.
“An offer from Inter has arrived worth €18m, but I spoke to the Sao Paulo directors and they immediately rejected the proposal,” agent Wagner Ribeiro told Estadao.
“I contacted Inter to tell them the offer was rejected because it does not satisfy the club’s requests.”
