Inter hit a dead end in pursuit of Edinson Cavani

Inter have made no progress in talks to sign Edinson Cavani when his PSG contract expires, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 33-year-old will leave Paris after seven seasons and 200 goals, with Inter making him a top summer target.

The Nerazzurri have sold Mauro Icardi to PSG and still risk losing Lautaro Martinez to Barcelona.

However, the situation is unchanging. Inter are willing to make Cavani their joint top earner along with Romelu Lukaku and Christian Eriksen.

Cavani would earn €7.5m-per-season with bonuses taking his income up to €9m.

The Uruguayan’s camp are still demanding an annual salary of €12m, which is too much for Inter.

Inter know that giving in to Cavani’s wage demands could unsettle the dressing room.

‘El Matador’ is the fourth top earner in Paris behind Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Thiago Silva.

His camp are determined to make sure his earnings stay around the €1.455m-per-month gross he currently takes in.

So after some fruitful negotiations, the Italian club’s move for Cavani has hit a dead end.

Cavani’s preference is reportedly a move to Spain, with Atletico Madrid interested in a deal after almost signing him in January.
