Cagliari continue negotiations with Diego Godin but reportedly struggle to meet the demands of the Inter defender.
The Uruguayan makes €5.5m a season at Inter and La Gazzetta dello Sport reveals he is not interested in cutting his wages.
The report claims Cagliari are working hard to convince the Uruguay international, but won’t be able to match the former Atletico Madrid centre-back's current salary.
FCInterNews previously reported Inter were prepared to guarantee the defender payment of the first three months and that Cagliari had offered the veteran €2.5m a season at the Sardegna Arena.
