Inter are continuing to negotiate for Malcom, according to reports, but Bordeaux want a loan with obligation to buy rather than an option.
The Nerazzurri have been heavily linked with the attacking midfielder, but must keep Financial Fair Play in mind for any negotiations.
Now that we’re in July it’s a new reporting year for FFP, but the Beneamata must still be careful about how they spend.
Sky Italia believes their latest offer for Malcom is a €10m loan, with an option to buy set at €40m.
However, both Rafinha and Joao Cancelo joined with options last summer which weren’t taken up, so the Ligue 1 side are pushing for an obligation.
Intermediaries are working to close the gap, but a deal, if there is one, is not expected to be closed quickly.
