Will Inter Clean House To Fund Fabregas Bid?

According to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, are planning a mass clear-out to fund a big-money bid for captain Cesc Fabregas this summer.

Corriere dello Sport claims that three of Inter’s biggest stars, Wesley Sneijder, Samuel Eto’o and goalkeeper Julio Cesar, will be sold this summer and the season with the cash they receive from the sales, the Serie A side will launch a move for Arsenal captain Fabregas.

The international has been continually linked to his boyhood club but their current midfield is so talent-packed that he would not be guaranteed a starting place in Pep Guardiola’s side. That could allow Inter into the running if Fabregas seeks a move after almost six trophy-less seasons in north London.

Inter have suffered a disappointing season under manager Leonardo; they are eight points behind league leaders AC and were knocked out of the in the quarter-finals by a side that were made to look average by on Tuesday.

Inter’s first-choice centre midfield partnership of Dejan Stankovic and Esteban Cambiasso have a combined age of 62 and the signing of Fabregas could signal a new dawn at the San Siro.
