Mariano close to Inter move?

Sevilla’s Brazilian full-back Mariano is a summer transfer target for Italian giants Inter Milan, according to reports in Spain.

The 30-year-old moved to Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan in the summer of 2015 for €3.5m from Ligue 1 side Bordeaux, but the Europa League holders are said to be unwilling to sell him for less than €20m – his current buyout clause.

Estadio Deportivo report the defender’s representatives have met with the Nerazzurri in Milan while a follow-up meeting has now been set for the Nervion area, the Seville-district where Los Rojiblancos play.

The former Cruzeiro and Fluminense full-back has never been capped by his country, but was included in the latest international squad following his fine form in La Liga.
