Yann M’Vila is reported as having agreed terms with Inter and it is now down to the Nerazzurri to do so with his club Rubin Kazan.
It is believed that the midfielder then met with sporting director Piero Ausilio where he repeated a similar message, before working through talks between Inter, his agent Ahmed Ouidy and FIFA agent Fabrizio Ferrari with regards to personal terms.
M’Vila, who only joined Rubin 18 months ago, is understood to have agreed to a four-year deal on a basic salary of €2.1m, which can rise based on performance bonuses.
it is reported that the player has accepted the apparent €900,000 pay-cut this contract represents, out of a desire to return to a more competitive League than the Russian one.
Meanwhile, reports are that Inter and Rubin are now talking over the final details to M’Vila’s move and that initially it will be in the form of a loan for 2014-15, with a purchase option then set at between €8m and €8.5m.
Whilst the clubs are believed close to agreeing terms, Walter Mazzarri is described by Sky Sport Italia as the only obstacle to the transfer’s completion, but that he is likely to approve it.
