Man United target set for €10m + player switch?

Inter Milan have made an audacious attempt to capture Manchester United and Arsenal target Hernanes, according to reports in Italy.

Corriere dello Sport has revealed that the Serie A giants, who have been locked in talks with Lazio over the valuation of the Brazilian playmaker, have submitted an offer which includes €10million and young midfielder Ibrahima Mbaye.

This follows reports yesterday that suggested Lazio would only accept an offer €15million and a part-ownership deal for Mbaye, though Inter have remained resolute in their insistence to not go above €10million.

The news is unlikely to spark action from either David Moyes or Arsene Wenger, both of whom have declared that more January additions look unlikely at this point. Following the capture of £37.1million man Juan Mata United aren’t expected to make any high profile additions until the summer.

In Arsenal’s case there is no pressing need to add to the midfield and so it would come as a surprise to many if Wenger was to try and hijack Inter’s efforts for Hernanes.

It remains to be seen if Lazio will consent to the sale of one of their star performers for less than they had hoped for, but with Inter owner Erick Thohir hell-bent on revamping the squad this month it could well transpire that a follow up bid is made if they are rejected.
