Inter-Milan Considering Improved Offer For Mathieu Debuchy


There are reports coming out of Italy today,  that Inter Milan could be preparing a new bid for for Newcastle United target, 27 year-old French International right-back, Mathieu Debuchy, and it could even match the valuation his club Lille have put on the player.

Mathieu Debuchy – Inter-Milan still interested?

The news is coming out of the Italian press, and Tuttosport in particular, who are reporting the Italian giants could be preparing a new offer of around €8M for the Lille defender.

The club are looking to sell Brazilian right-back  Maicon this summer, and the full-back is past his best, and they will need to replace him, although it seems their number one target is Manchester City left-back Aleksandar  Kolarov, and current right back Japanese International Tuto Nagatomo would move over to the right back position,  if they acquire Aleksandar .

Inter-Milan are apparently waiting to hear from the Premier League Champions whether they will sell  Kolorov for a fee they have already offered, rumored to be €8M, but Manchester City are likely to hold out for more.

And if they cannot get the Serbian International, they could turn to Lille’s Mathieu Debuchy, and Inter-Milan President Massimo Moratti is said to be willing to offer up to €8M (about £6.4M) to Lille for the right-back – according to the report in Tuttosport.

It’s debatable what Newcastle have actually offered Lille for the player, but it’s probably not as much as Inter-Milan will offer, and it could even meet Lille’s valuation of their player.

If this happens and Inter-Milan do make a move for Mathieu, we would hope Newcastle will be straight in with an improved offer for the Frenchman.

It would be tragic if Newcastle lose out in the bidding for Debuchy – and certainly a certain Yohan Cabaye would not be too impressed.

What do you think?

    If we match their valuation then he is ours. That simple.

    If Inter bid accepted, NUFC made the same bid and got rejected, that will be funny.

    I can’t find anywhere that winning the Europa League enters you into teh Champions League..

    Atletico Madrid won last season, and were not entered into teh CL this season.

    Harry Redknapp is a fcuking cun+

    Have you seen that he thinks we’ll ‘do well to finish 7th or 8th’.

    Pr1ck. He should take his burn victims face and take his opinion elsewhere.

    Always the same with these tosspots.

    Why is it everyone is jealous of what we have?

    When it’s being reported that a club ‘could possibly do something’, it’s probably not worth reading.

    If Debuchy joined us after this long saga and cost a lot of money, then he turned out to be worse than Simpson. That will be really funny.

    @kyo
    We did match their evaluation and then they decided to up it.
    @TDS
    If you win Europa League you get automatically entered into it the following year, but not the CL.

    If I had a penny for every time Debuchy’s name has been mentioned before and since the Euros I could have bought him myself!
    I think it’s obvious he’s not coming (in fact who is?) and we should move on as it’s becoming paralysingly boring.

    Does it matter if the winner of the Europa league goes into CL? Not like we are going to win it in all fairness

    i wouldn’t hold that as truth about lille upping their valuation

    there’s been an unprecedented amount said on this potential transfer. truth is, no one really knows. we may not have even put a second bid in!

    when we signed marveaux last year i had to pick him up as well, was all a bit of a rush with it being a last minute thing but couldnt ask him nowt – couldnt speak a word of english.

    my friend marveaux could speak English, pretty well, just like gabby, his first nufc interview was in English.. Hahaha U are lying my friend… If U a going to lie, get ur facts right…hahaha 😉

    ….and in my opinion i’ve always thought Debuchy has been a decent right back, but nothing more.

    he’s without doubt an improvement on simmo if we get him in, but in all honesty, if we have to spend nearer 8mil to get him, we really should be looking elsewhere…

    They didn’t up their valuation. Our first bid was a cheeky 4m euros which was laughed at. They said they want 8m euros so our improved bid was 6m plus 2m or so sell on bonus if we ever sell him. This was not good enough for lille.

    @ToonDownSouth: Apparently I owe you an apology for “taking the piss out of you” on the last thread. Pawl is now blog police and I fear for my e-safety if I do not comply.

    Please accept my sincerest apologies for sharing a joke.

    If we miss out on Debuchy, we should make sure that we get Cissokho in. Cissokho is 3 years younger and can offer a lot.

    We must go for Remy. Marseille are desperate for cash at the moment. Maybe £9m will do it. Don’t even bother with Carroll. I’d take him on loan as well as Remy, but defininitely not on a permanent. £13m plus is too much.

    Des Hamilton just sent me a telegram via the Queen (as there Engadged) and it turns out Marcelinho has reinvented himself as a number 9 under the name of Andy Carrol. Anyone interested?

    i have seen Cissokho play on numerous occasions and have been thoroughly underwhelmed..

    i’ve noticed he’s pretty erratic in his decision making and loses possession quite often.

    would rather get someone younger like Sebastian Corchea who everyone has been mentioning. I’ve personally never seen him play but with regard to how highly everyone speaks of him and Tavernier beginning to fulfill his promise, i feel financially and thinking in terms of the future, he or someone similar (age, potential, etc) would be preferable.

    I agree in remy would truly be an immense signing altough i still think tiovonen(?) would be a decent signing in regards of his versatility
    As for cissoko have seen him play enough through his career but he did have a poor season last season but the lads still young so could be worth a punt

    Thump
    Your a disgrace lad, trying to joke around on here and have a bit of banter like this is some sort of fcuking nufc fan blog you can just cone on and have a bit of craic with other fans
