Matteo Politano’s agent says he is confident that Inter will take up their option to buy the Sassuolo winger this summer.
Inter paid €5m to take Politano on loan with a €20m option to buy last summer, and the 25-year-old has chipped in with five goals and six assists in 38 appearances this season.
“Politano to Inter is a deal we all wanted to happen,” Davide Lippi told Radio Sportiva.
“Matteo is having a great season, which is what we expected. Inter were a big jump, it’s true, but they invested in him because they thought he’d make it.
“Matteo did well to adapt to the levels and pressures of a big team so quickly, as well as playing in the Champions League: he responded well, so all the credit belongs to him.
“We knew the quality he had. I was convinced of it, otherwise I wouldn’t have worked to take him to Milan.
“I think he’s a player you can bank on. I don’t think Inter will miss out on the chance to buy him: it’ll take more or less €20m to release him from Sassuolo.
“We haven’t talked yet as the season is long, but I don’t think there will be any problems with Inter’s option to buy, given the esteem we’ve received.
“We’re all satisfied: the club and fans.”
