Inter may be on the verge of adding Brazilian prospect Casemiro from Real Madrid to their ranks, though the deal could still stall over Los Blancos insistence on having a buy-out clause in the players contract.
Casemiro, who is highly thought of throughout Europe, struggled for playing time at the Bernabéu last season making 12 appearances in La Liga, 11 of which came from the bench and could leave in order to get more first team football.
Tuttosport report that Real have agreed to let the Brazilian join Inter for the coming season but are insisting on a clause allowing them to buy the player back at the end of his first or second season at the club.
The deal proposed by the Spanish side is similar to the deal that took the Spanish right back Daniel Carvajal to Bayer Leverkusen for the 2012/13 season. Real re-acquired the player for a fee much less than his market value which is what Inter fear will happen if Casemiro has a good season with the Nerazzurri.
Inter seem intent on strengthening their midfield this summer with Yann M’Vila expected to join and Valon Behrami, amongst others, continue to be linked with the Nerazzurri.
