Since Sime Vrsaljko and Cedric Soares won’t be redeemed by Inter Milan in the summer transfer window, the club has set its sights on a different avenue for defense.

As we reported earlier, Inter Milan have looked at Manchester City full-back Danilo for the latter half of the season, and now it appears negotiations are reaching a critical point.

According to Gianluca di Marzio, Danilo’s management has started negotiations with Inter, and the player has already agreed to a €1 million per season pay cut to join the Nerazzurri next season.

On Tuesday, Gazzetta dello Sport suggested Inter has submitted a bid of €15 million plus bonuses to Manchester City, but the Premier League side has not decided on the deal as of yet.

It is rumored that Manchester City was looking for something in the range of €20 million to €25 million and Inter could still increase that offer slightly if need be.

Danilo has experience on the international level with the Brazil national team – where he has earned 23 caps – and in Europe where he helped Real Madrid to two Champions League trophies, one UEFA Super Cup, one La Liga title and one FIFA Club World Cup title.
