Gremio confirm they “only had formal contact with Inter” for €50m-rated midfielder Arthur, despite Chelsea and Real Madrid interest.
The 21-year-old has been one of the most impressive talents in South America this year, earning links with numerous top clubs.
“Arthur has only recently signed a new contract with Gremio and it has a release clause worth €50m,” Vice-President Odorico Roman told Cadena Cope.
“If a club arrives, let’s say, with an offer worth €25-30m, Arthur will not leave. I read in the media that Chelsea and Real Madrid are interested, but I can confirm the only club we had formal contact with for Arthur was Inter.”
