Francesco Coco is surprised by Milan’s decision to hand over cash as well as Antonio Cassano to Inter for Giampaolo Pazzini.
The two players are on the verge of officially swapping clubs, with Inter also set to be handed €7m as part of the deal.
“It would have been fairer without the money,” Coco, who left Milan for Inter in 2002, told Radio Mana Mana.
“Milan are the losers here because they have to put their hand in their pocket. It’s a swap deal which is totally in Inter’s favour.”
The move has been engineered by the fact that 30-year-old Cassano asked the Diavolo to sell him – just 18 months after his arrival from Sampdoria.
“Cassano has always been an Inter fan and his talent is not up for discussion,” the former left-back continued.
“Now he has the chance to fulfil a dream. However, Milan need Pazzini more than Inter need Cassano…”
