According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Inter Milan has not called up Ivan Perisic for today’s friendly at Valencia. The omission of the 30-year-old Croatia international has fueled speculation that Perisic is in the final stages of a move to Bayern Munich.

With rumors flowing all day on Friday, it seems that the Bayern Munich and Inter Milan could truly be in the final stages of completing a deal.

Romano also provided some financial details on what the deal might look like:

The agreement is almost reached with Inter for €5M loan and €20M buy option. Now it’s time for Perisic’s decision and it’ll be done. #bayern #inter #perisic #bayernmünich

One of the primary reasons that Bayern Munich is acting so swiftly in trying to procure Perisic is because of the ACL injury sustained last week by Manchester City’s Leroy Sane during the Community Shield match against Liverpool.

With chatter that Sane would be playing his final game under Pep Guardiola last weekend, Sane suffered damage to his knee that has caused confusion and delay to Bayern Munich’s transfer plans. With Sane considered to be the primary target of the Bavarians this summer, the club was left to scramble and find alternatives with just a few weeks left in the transfer window.


[UPDATE 7:55AM EST]

Fabrizio Romano is now reporting that the deal is “confirmed” and has indicated that Perisic will fly to Germany to finalize the paperwork with Bayern Munich.
