One of the principal names in Jose Mourinho’s team, Henrikh Mkhitaryan is seemingly on the verge of leaving Roma this summer.
According to a report from Il Messaggero, Roma are not the only club rejected by Mkhitaryan. But the report understands that Lazio made a last-ditch attempt to hijack the summer move for the former Manchester United and Arsenal playmaker, who is now closer than ever to joining Inter.
With the player’s current contract in Rome expiring in June 2022, he will complete a free transfer in the summer. Roma were interested in extending the player’s term but stayed far from meeting the player’s demands.
In what is reported to be their last offer for a contract renewal, the Giallorossi management proposed the Armenian a net salary of €3.5million in a one-year deal with another option for the second. Mkhitaryan asked for a figure of around €5million including bonuses.
Inter have persistently pursued the services of the 33-year-old star. And thus, the playmaker has preferred moving to Inter as the Nerazzurri have agreed to meet his wage demands with various bonuses concerning goals and appearances.
