Stefan de Vrij will be a free agent in June after Lazio withdrew their contract offer and it’s reported Inter have a deal already.
Aquile director Igli Tare announced last night, just before the 2-0 victory over Verona, that the club had withdrawn its proposal to renew his contract due to continuing delays in giving a response.
Several top clubs are interested in the Dutch international, including Juventus, Manchester City, Liverpool, Napoli, Manchester United, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
However, Inter have been the favourites for several months and La Repubblica claims that the Nerazzurri are close to agreeing terms on a five-year contract worth €4m per season, plus bonuses.
The situation could well change if Inter fail to qualify for the Champions League.
