Why Milan and Inter didn’t sign Gomez

Papu Gomez will undergo his medical tests with Sevilla tomorrow, but why Inter and Milan didn’t sign him?

The 32-year-old will join the La Liga giants in a €8.5m deal, add-ons included, and is set to sign a three-year and a half deal.

Inter and Milan had been linked with securing the player’s services, but why the Serie A giants didn’t sign the former Atalanta captain?

Several reports in Italy claim Atalanta didn’t want to sell the striker to their direct Serie A rivals, especially on the cheap.

Atalanta were even ready to keep hold of the 32-year-old if they had failed to find a foreign club willing to sign the player on a permanent deal.  

La Dea and Sevilla reached an agreement in a couple of days and Gomez is now ready to begin a new chapter of his career after 252 games, 59 goals and 71 assists with Atalanta.
