EVERYTHING LOOKS to be set for the exchange as Giampaolo Pazzini is having his medical done.
Today could be the day of the Pazzini-Cassano exchange. Most of the details were agreed by Inter and Milan yesterday after a long day of meetings and the players are ready to switch sides in the coming hours.
Adriano Galliani revealed on Sunday that Cassano does not want to stay at Milan and handed in a transfer request. Cassano’s agent offered Antonio to Inter and the Nerazzurri contacted Milan regarding a swap.
It won’t be a clean-exchange as the Rossoneri will have to add money to the deal to make it happen. La Gazzetta dello Sport reports the price needed is €7.5 million while every other source reports it’s €7 million. The reason Milan have to pay extra is because Pazzini’s value is higher than that of Cassano.
The contract details of Pazzini have also leaked: He’ll sign a four-year deal worth €2.5 million a season. Pazzini will reportedly take on Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s #11 jersey. The player, at these moments, is at Busto Arsizio, having his medical check-ups done. He’ll then most likely head to Milanello and sign the contract with Milan later today. The only thing missing apparently is the final Cassano-Inter agreement over wages.
Pazzini’s agent, Tullio Tinti spent the morning in via Turati but left along with Adriano Galliani. Gazzetta reports that Galliani will soon head to Forte dei Marmi for relaxations after the busy Pazzini-Cassano days.
