Nice outbid Chelsea for Inter starlet Casadei

Cesare Casadei of FC Internazionale Milano in action during the FC Internazionale training session at the club's training ground Suning Training Center on July 11, 2022 in Como, Italy.

Inter midfielder Cesare Casadei is becoming the centre of a bidding war, as Chelsea risk being beaten to the punch by OGC Nice.

The 19-year-old has not yet played for the senior squad, but is the captain of the Primavera youth team and an Italy Under-19 international.

The Nerazzurri had tried to resist all offers to sell the youth product, but are reportedly prepared to make a sale at over €15m.

Chelsea had been the absolute favourites, but  Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims that OGC Nice are ready to make an even higher offer for Casadei.

It is turning into a pure bidding war for the young Italian talent, who had already been approached by Chelsea as part of the negotiations bringing Romelu Lukaku back to San Siro.

He is under contract with the Nerazzurri until June 2024 and if Inter do manage to resist selling Casadei, he will likely be promoted to the senior squad under Simone Inzaghi instead.
