Despite Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio seemingly shutting down any possibility of Matteo Politano joining Roma earlier today, the parties are working behind the scenes to repair the damaged rapport.
Sky Sport reports that this afternoon, Roma and the Nerazzurri have spoken again about the former Sassuolo attacker, who has expressed his desire to join the Giallorossi. Inter are open to letting Politano leave — but under certain conditions.
Inter CEO Beppe Marotta and Roma CEO Guido Fienga spoke to each other today to try and calm things down after Roma were furious with Marotta’s side having broken an agreement on a Spinazzola-Politano swap. Inter is willing to let Politano leave but not on loan with an option to buy. They would prefer a loan with an obligation to buy or — at minimum — a loan with an obligation linked to a certain number of appearances he makes.
