It’s reported Hernanes has agreed personal terms with Inter, but the club needs to find €20m cash for Lazio.
The midfielder was filmed leaving the training ground in tears this afternoon, hugged and consoled by Biancocelesti supporters.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the Brazilian already emptied his locker at Formello and has now agreed personal terms with Inter.
Agent Joseph Lee is in advanced negotiations and wrote out a contract worth €3.2m per season plus performance-related bonuses, rising to €3.7m.
However, the problem remains the transfer fee, as now that Ibrahima Mbaye has been removed from the deal, Lazio only want cash.
Their price-tag for Hernanes is between €17m and €20m, the kind of money Inter do not have at their disposal right now.
It’s reported the club and President Erick Thohir are in talks with the banks to receive financial guarantees so they can complete the transfer.
