Inter defender Stefan De Vrij is linked with Real Madrid in a swap deal. The Nerazzurri are not going to extend his contract, and according to Calcio Mercato Web, he could move to Real Madrid. Also, the Los Blancos are willing to offer a simple swap deal with Nacho coming to Inter. The Spanish defender might not get a new contract, and could finally move out of his boyhood club. While Inter will get a serial winner with experience playing in the toughest games.
De Vrij might leave Inter on a free transfer next summer so a swap deal would help Inter. Also, they will not have to find a replacement for De Vrij with the swap deal. Nacho Fernandez can play anywhere in the back three, which makes him a perfect option for backup and rotation. Also, his leadership qualities will help Inter in big games. The Spaniard has played in many important games for Real Madrid and will bring that experience with him. However, he will have to adjust to Serie A as he has played in La Liga for his entire career.
Inter defender linked with Real Madrid ahead of the Winter transfer window
The Los Blancos are making moves to transfer their players that might leave as free agents. Getting De Vrij on a swap deal will be great as the Dutch defender is two years younger than Nacho. Also, he is a primary center-back with the ability to progress the ball forward with his fine passing. This will help Madrid in securing a backup option.
De Vrij was looking to move out of Inter last season as well, but Spurs could not meet Inter Milan’s demands. Now, both Inter and Real Madrid will benefit from this deal as they will not have to extend the contract of their current players, and will get its replacement.
