Inter Milan have accepted a bid from Paris Saint-Germain for midfielder Thiago Motta, according to the player’s agent.
Motta’s represenative, Alessandro Canovi, claimed last week Wednesday night’s Coppa Italia clash with Napoli would be his client’s last outing for Inter, and the midfielder was duly left out of the squad to face Lecce on Sunday.
Inter coach Claudio Ranieri insisted after the game he had been given assurances that Motta, who is out of contract at the end of next season, would not be sold before the close of the transfer window.
Canovi has now revealed the move should be completed before the close of play on Tuesday evening.
“PSG and Inter have reached an agreement over Thiago Motta,” the agent is quoted as saying by Tuttomercatoweb.com.
“We’re missing only some minor details but there is time to finalise everything.”
“However, even if it does not end today, it will in July because the agreement is there now.”
Brazilian-born Motta, who has been capped six times by Italy, has made 45 Serie A appearances for Inter since arriving from Genoa in 2009.
