City to sell Dutchman after Rodwell capture.
Inter Milan are preparing a bid for Man City midfielder Nigel De Jong, after the Blues completed the capture of Everton’s Jack Rodwell.
De Jong has just 12 months remaining on his deal at Eastlands and is set to leave the Premier League Champions this summer.
The Dutch international has fallen behind Gareth Barry and Yaya Toure in the City pecking order and the £15m capture of Rodwell is likely to decrease his chances further.
Serie A giants Inter have been tracking De Jong for some time and, according to Football Italia, are now ready to move for the 27-year-old.
Inter captain Wesley Sniejder said last week that the Nerazzurri must sign his compatriot and City are reportedly willing to sell the combative midfielder for around £8m.
Inter may face competition from their City rivals AC, who also admire De Jong, while it is understood that Tottenham have also enquired about City’s asking price.
