Inter line up Marin to replace Sneijder
Serie A giants Inter are readying bid for Werder Bremen playmaker Marko Marin, Bild has revealed.
The Neroazzurri have contacted the player’s agent Fali Ramadani and are expected to make a formal offer to Werder Bremen.
Inter are prepared to cash in on Wesley Sneijder and they see Marin as a perfect replacement for the Dutch midfielder.
Werder Bremen chief Klaus Alofs reveals that the club would take any offer into consideration.
“If an offer arrives, we will deal with it,” Alofs was quoted as saying in Bild.
Marko Marin has a year and a half left on his deal with the Bundesliga giants and recent reports suggest that he would be available for €10 million.
With Wesley Sneijder’s price in the region of €30 million, Inter look to be in for a great piece of business, especially since Marin is just 22 years old.
PSG make formal offer for Pato
Paris Saint-Germain have sent a formal bid for Milan star Alexandre Pato, La Gazzetta dello Sport claims.
PSG new boss Carlo Ancelotti recently ruled out a bid for the Rossoneri star, but it looks as though he has changed his mind.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reveals that the Saints have made a €28 million bid for the 22-year-old.
Milan reportedly value the player at €40 million, but they are willing to negotiate the sale after Pato has fallen out with boss Maxi Allegri.
The Rossoneri need the money in order to fund Carlos Tevez’s transfer from Manchester City and they could deicide to lower their asking price.
The Serie A giants have already agreed personal terms with Tevez, but Manchester City would only settle for an outright transfer.
Stuttgart star hints at summer exit
Stuttgart striker Pavel Pogrebnyak is set to leave Mercedes-Benz Arena, according to his agent.
The Russian forward has less than six months left on his deal with Stuttgart and it has now been revealed that he will not be signing a contract extension.
The 28-year-old is not entirely happy with his treatment at the club and is now looking for a new challenge.
“VFB will not renew his contract,” Pogrebnyak’s representative Oleg Artjomow told Russian newspaper Sport Express.
“Or, to put it more precisely, Pavel will not renew his contract at VFB (Stuttgart).”
This basically means that the Russian international can leave the club on a free transfer in the summer.
However, Stuttgart could try and sell him in the January transfer window, so as to get back at least a portion of the €4.8 million invested in the player.
