Inter to reject Ljajic, Jovetic, Telles?

Reports say Inter will decide against permanently signing Adem Ljajic, Stevan Jovetic and Alex Telles in the summer. 

Tuttosport reports today that the €25m it will cost to secure the trio at the end of the season is too much for the Nerazzurri, particularly if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

The newspaper explains that rejecting Ljajic shouldn’t be a problem as it's up to Inter whether to take him from Roma permanently or not once his loan expires.

However, Jovetic’s case is more complicated as the Montenegrin’s move becomes an obligation once a certain number of appearances are made and if the club are in the top 17 places of the table by December 2016.

It will therefore be necessary for Inter sporting director to open a new negotiation with Manchester City to try and avoid splashing out €14.5m on the striker.

As for Telles, the outlet believes Roberto Mancini’s side will decide against triggering his €8.5m buyout clause but could try and convince Galatasaray to let him leave for half that figure.
