Inter sound out move for De Paul

Rodrigo de Paul of Atletico de Madrid controls the ball during the LaLiga Santander match between Club Atletico de Madrid and Granada CF at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on April 20, 2022 in Madrid, Spain.


Inter are keen to make a loan move for Rodrigo De Paul, whose start at Atletico Madrid has been a little underwhelming.

The 27-year-old Argentinian midfielder joined Diego Simeone’s side from Udinese last summer in a deal worth around €35m. He signed a five-year contract and expectations were high, but things have been a little disappointing in Spain this season.

As detailed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, two weeks ago Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio spoke to De Paul’s entourage to sound out a possible deal, keen to bring the Argentinian to the Lombardy capital in the summer.

It’s likely that Inter would pursue a loan deal, possibly even with no buy option attached, as their financial limitations restrict their flexibility. The player himself would be happy to return to Italy.

The 27-year-old De Paul has made 43 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2676 minutes. In that time, he’s scored two goals and provided two assists.
