Report: Inter Milan price Cesare Casadei at €20m
Following recent reports of Chelsea’s interest and attempts to strike a deal, Inter Milan have set their price tag for young midfielder Cesare Casadei.
Publications in Italy have picked up the latest news on Chelsea’s pursuit of the young Italian, detailing Inter’s desire to extract a large sum from him if they decide to sanction an exit.
Saturday, Gazzetta Dello Sport provided an update on the Italian club’s position on this potential transfer. They would demand at least €20m for the young midfielder, if Chelsea don’t agree to a buyout clause.
The Blues are said to be longtime admirers of the Italian, having initially scouted him in 2018 and keeping tabs on his progress ever since. Casadei signed a contract with Inter at the age of 16, preferring to continue developing within the club’s setup.

The 19-year-old has continued to develop and flourish for Inter’s youth teams, a form that has led Chelsea and many other teams to take an interest in him.
Chelsea and Inter apparently have a good relationship, given the nature of Romelu Lukaku’s recent return to Serie A on loan. This could help the negotiations between the two clubs for Casadei.
With their interest in Inter defender Denzel Dumfries being confirmed, the two clubs will already be in discussions, another contributing factor to this potential transfer of Casadei. Fees will apparently be determined by the desire to include a buyout clause.
