Crazy Ball – Cagliari are reportedly now the favorite to be able to bring Inter Milan's experienced defender from Uruguay, Diego Godin, who will indeed be released by the Blue Black club.
Although he had expressed his desire to stay at Inter Milan next season, it seems that veteran Uruguayan defender Diego Godin will indeed be released by Antonio Conte's team. Having been linked with the French club, Rennes, some time ago, the latest news actually said the player would leave for Cagliari.
The 34-year-old defender has been deemed unsatisfactory for Conte this season, although the player was able to regain a position in the first team in Inter's last few games last season. However, considering the age factor and also the high salary, reportedly the Nerazzurri would prefer to release the player rather than keep him.
Based on reports from Sportitalia, Godin may be released to Cagliari for free, which means Inter will not ask for a penny from the Sardinian club. With the actual contract expiring in 2022, the decision from Conte's team was quite surprising, but given the age of the player, it is difficult to expect a high bid for him.
However, news from renowned sports journalist Fabrizio Romano stated that the two clubs were still trying to reach an agreement regarding the transfer. Apart from that, Cagliari himself still had to come to an agreement with Godin himself regarding salaries and so on.
The news about Godin's transfer plan to Cagliari is indeed a bit surprising, because Eusebio Di Francesco's club is considered to be difficult to pay the salary of the former Atletico Madrid defender. However, based on the available news, it looks like Gli Isolani will be able to overcome the salary problem somehow.
From the player's side, rumors about his future at Inter have been developing since a few months ago. Since experiencing difficulties to appear regularly in both Serie A and European competitions, Godin is said to be released in the transfer market this summer, because his playing style is deemed not suitable to what Conte wants.
