Inter have reportedly tied up Nemanja Vidic for a summer Bosman move and now turned their attention to Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna.
The Nerazzurri have been seen in recent weeks as on the verge of agreeing a deal to pick up Manchester United centre-back Vidic at the expiry of his Old Trafford contract this summer.
The Gazzetta dello Sport say that Piero Ausilio has now finalised negotiations with the 32-year-old’s entourage this week during a trip out to London.
The defender and his representatives are believed to have put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the San Siro side, starting at a €2.8m net salary with the potential to rise to €3.3m.
The meeting this week in England was apparently to finalises particular details to that contract, including image rights.
Meanwhile, on from reports of the Nerazzurri’s pursuit in Vidic’s teammate Patrice Evra, the Gazzetta dello Sport also indicate that Inter have reignited interest in Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna.
The Frenchman is said to have failed to agree terms of an extension to stay on with the Gunners beyond this summer and Inter are seen as leading a chasing pack for his signature that reportedly also includes Liverpool and sides from Spain.
