Like Conte, who is now waiting on Real Madrid, Inter are also bidding farewell to Achraf Hakimi. Having being one of Inter's mainstays throughout the Scudetto winning season, the former Madrid player is set to say goodbye to the Nerazzurri barely a year after his arrival. Inter, in financial difficulty, now need to recover €100 million and cut salaries by 20%, and will cash in on the flying wing-back.

PSG close in on signing

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the negotiations with PSG are almost closed and the new signing will arrive soon. The French club will invest €60 million in the 22-year-old, a figure that will be a major boost to Inter financially. Their objective, now, is not to sell more top players for Simone Inzaghi's new project and to make money through other names. Joao Mario, who had a great season at Sporting and has a year left on his contract could depart the club. Nainggolan could also find himself leaving the Serie A champions. The midfielder finished the season well at Cagliari and earns €4.5 million net: releasing him would mean saving €9 million.

Inter look to replace Achraf

Stefano Sensi, meanwhile, could follow De Zerbi to Shakhtar or leave for Gattuso's Fiorentina. Vecino could also be on his way, to Spalletti's Napoli, who know him well, for a figure between €6-8 million. Achraf, who cost more than €40 million a year ago from Madrid, had a spectacular season in Italy, scoring seven goals and supplying 11 assists in 45 appearances. To replace him, the Nerazzurri are eyeing Florenzi, who PSG will let return to Roma after his loan spell ended with the Ligue 1 side.
