Inter’s deal for Samardzic falls through


Inter’s proposed transfer move for Udinese midfielder Lazar Samardzic has fallen through at the last minute. The club were all set to sign the 21-year-old this summer, with reports suggesting that just an official announcement was pending before the deal was complete.

Sky Sport Italia, La Gazzetta dello Sport and number of others report that the Nerazzurri have withdrawn from their bid to sign the Serbian international. The reports all confirm that after agreeing a transfer with Udinese for €15m  plus 20-year-old midfielder Giovanni Fabbian, the move collapsed after a failure to agree personal terms with Samardzic.

The suggestion is that Samardzic and his entourage had changed their requests at the very last minute, prompting the club to give up on the transfer.

Inter director Piero Ausilio spoke with journalists last night and confirmed the news, saying:

“You’ve (the media) already said everything on Samardzic, the reports were accurate.”

“We had an agreement with Udinese, but, let’s put it this way, there were many changes on the Samardzic front.”


Serie A obsessive.
