Inter: Kondogbia in, Banega out?

Inter are reportedly planning to keep Geoffrey Kondogbia and listen to offers of more than €25m for Ever Banega.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter rejected the advances of Chinese club Hebei China Fortune – who have former Serie A stars Gervinho and Ezequiel Lavezzi – for Kondogbia, who is deemed “unsellable”.

It would cap a remarkable turnaround for the Frenchman, who has struggled to assert himself since his first-half substitution against Bologna in October, although he has started the Beneamata’s last two games.

However, the newspaper notes the Nerazzurri would find it “easier” to sell Banega, given the Argentine arrived from Sevilla on a free transfer last summer.

Inter would reportedly demand €25m upwards for the 28-year-old and use that money to purchase a left-back or another midfielder.
