Medel takes cut for Inter

The Gazzetta dello Sport reiterate that Gary Medel will be Inter player by Wednesday, and report on how he helped to facilitate his move.

The Chile international has been the subject of negotiations between the Nerazzurri and Cardiff City for a number of weeks, with valuation and method of payment seen as major issues in talks.

However, reports from the weekend are that a deal is close to being agreed and expectancy in Italy is that the midfielder will finalise a transfer by the middle of this week.

It is understood that a fee close to €9m has been agreed, with €1m of that a bonus linked to Champions League qualification during the next four years and the rest due to paid in instalments starting at €3m.

Medel has reportedly agreed to help facilitate the move by agreeing to an initial drop in wage demands for the first year of his prospective contract.

The 27-year-old is reportedly open to a €1.6m-plus-bonuses deal for his first season with Inter, followed by an automatic raise to €1.9m from year two.
