Inter have asked to sign Malcom from Bordeaux on loan with option to buy for a total of €40m.
The 21-year-old winger is widely reported to have chosen San Siro as his next destination.
As the Nerazzurri are still under Financial Fair Play limitations, they have to structure the deal in a particular way.
The ideal would be a loan at €8m with option to buy at the end of the season for €32m.
It’d be a promise to complete the transfer rather than an obligation, because otherwise that could weigh on their financial status, claim Mediaset Premium.
Today, Malcom’s agent confirmed he “would not rule out” a loan with obligation to buy.
