Deulofeu chooses Inter, but...

Reports in Spain suggest Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu wants Inter, but the Catalan club want a sale or loan with obligation to buy.

It’s expected the Spanish international will leave Camp Nou this month, as the arrival of Philippe Coutinho is likely to limit his playing time even more.

Following his loan spell with Milan last season, a return to Italy has been mooted with Napoli also among the contenders for his signature.

According to Sport though, Deulofeu has already chosen the Nerazzurri, so the only problem is dealing with Barça.

The Blaugrana want to sell the 23-year-old permanently, or at least send him on loan with an obligation to buy.

That presents a problem for the Beneamata, who can’t spend money in this transfer window unless they sell, because they have Financial Fair Play obligations to meet.

Therefore Deulofeu’s representatives will meet with Barcelona today to try and find a solution.
