Cassano-Pazzini swap is done

Antonio Cassano and Giampaolo Pazzini could undergo their medicals on Tuesday after Milan and Inter agreed terms over their transfers.

After an intense Monday of negotiations between all parties, a deal has reportedly been done for the Italian internationals.

Pazzini will move to Milan in exchange for Cassano, his former striker partner at Sampdoria, and €7m in cash.

The deal was born after Cassano, now 30, put in a transfer request at Milanello – allegedly because of his frosty relationship with boss Massimiliano Allegri.

Milan, meanwhile, were looking for a new striker after the sale of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris Saint-Germain and Pazzini had been transfer listed by the Nerazzurri.

Pazzini is understood to have agreed personal terms with the Diavolo last night, while Cassano is on the verge of reaching an understanding with Inter – the team he grew up supporting.

According to some reports, the transfers could be made official at some point on Tuesday.
