Italian journalist Gianluca DiMarzio spoke with Sky Sports yesterday about the rumored negotiations between Inter Milan and Atletico de Madrid regarding Atleti midfielder Mario Suarez.
DiMarzio claims that the Nerazzurri have made two different proposals to the Spanish side in an attempt to secure the Italian international's transfer.
The first offer is fairly straightforward: Inter would take Suarez on an 18-month loan, with an obligation to purchase for €15 million at the end of the 2015/16 season.
The second proposal contains more constituent parts. Inter's second offer, if accepted by Los Colchoneros would see the Italian side pay €2 million for a loan with an obligation to purchase set at €11 million, with an additional €2 million bonus tied to the number of appearances Suarez would make for Inter as well as Champions League qualification.
This means that the total cost for the player would be €15 million either way, but one would be more of an outright purchase for that amount while the other is dependent on the player's fitness and overall contribution.
While the two clubs are reported to be in regular contact, some sources say that Atletico wish to find a replacement for Suarez before making any real attempt to ship him out of Madrid in January.
