Serie A giants Inter Milan is set to offload defender Diego Godin in the summer a year after he joined them from Atletico Madrid.
Godin has struggled to adapt to coach Antonio Conte’s tactical system and according to a report from Fabrizio Romano on Italian media outlet Calciomercato, the club feels he doesn’t warrant the higher salary he is earning.
The 34-year-old earns around €5 million a year with bonuses with his contract set to expire in 2022; the club set to save up to €20 million by selling him in the summer.
The report details how Godin has failed to bed in the 5-5-2 system liked by Conte having played most of his career in a back four system.
There are no clubs ready to take the player thus far in Europe owing to his age and wage demands but Inter is said to be already in the market looking for a replacement.
Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla is one player they are being linked with and they could make a move to sign the Albanian teenager in the summer.
