Manchester United and Chelsea have been put on alert as Esteban Cambiasso edges closer to the Inter Milan exit door, according to the Mirror.
The Argentinian midfielder’s contract runs up at the end of the season, and it’s believed that he has been told he will have to see his wages slashed if he wants to remain at the San Siro.
Cambiasso currently earns £3.7million-a-year with Inter, and had harboured hopes of penning an extension before his contract ends in June. However new owner Erick Thohir has set about cutting the wages of the players on the books at the Italian giants, and has stated that no player should be earning more than £2.07million.
The 33-year-old is thought to now be considering his future in Italy, and the Mirror suggests he could move to either Chelsea- he worked under Jose Mourinho during the latter’s time at the San Siro- or Manchester United, who are in dire need of experienced central midfielders.
There’s no doubting Cambiasso’s pedigree at the highest level, but one would have to question whether or not he still has what it takes to crack the Premier League given his advancing years.
