Inter Milan has revealed the reason why Shkordan Mustafi’s deal failed on the deadline day in the summer transfer windows.
Piero Ausilio,Inter Milan’s sporting director, has revealed the reason why Shkodran Mustafi,Arsenal’s defender, didn’t make it to the Nerazzurri.
Piero Ausillo said in an interview with the English journal, Daily Mail, Inter Milan was close to sign Mustafi, but Arsenal raised the price after Juventus joined the race to sign the German world cup winner defender.
Ausillo said:”Inter Milan agreed with Arsenal to pay 4.6m GBP for a one year loan with an option to buy him for 23m GBP.”
Ausillo continued:”Inter and Arsenal agreed to this fee, but after Juventus joined the race, Arsenal raised the price to 35m GBP, which is the same fee Arsenal paid for Valencia CF last season to sign the German defender”
According to Ausillo, Arsenal’s high demanded transfer fee made the deal fail in the last hours of the transfer deadline day. Knowing that Mustafi didn’t play against Liverpool in the last match.
