Barcelona right-back Martin Montoya is set to join Inter Milan on a two-year loan, according to the La Masia graduate’s agent.

 

Mundo Deportivo has tweeted a picture of Montoya completing his medical at Inter Milan.

 

Montoya, 24, was long seen as the likely replacement for Dani Alves on the right side of Barca’s defence, however he has never really established himself as a first team player at the Camp Nou and was again a bit-part player throughout the 2014-15 season.

Alves extended his Barcelona contract by two years at least at the end of that campaign, while Barca also have €5.5 million summer 2014 signing Douglas to cover the right-back position.

The Spanish full back – who has been tracked by Liverpool in recent months – has been frozen out at Barcelona recently given the success of the club’s first team players, and he is now set to embark on a new opportunity with the Italian club.

Montoya’s agent confirmed earlier this week that he would be joining Inter when Barcelona were happy to let the deal go through; and it appears that time has arrived.

Juan De Dios Carrasco told ​Calciomercato.com at the time: “We can say that we’re waiting for the green light from Barcelona for Montoya to be 100 per cent sure of a move to Inter.

“We have an agreement, we’re waiting. I can confirm that it will be a two-year loan, but I can’t talk about figures.”

Those figures are believed to be a €1.5m fee for the initial two-year loan, while Inter have the right to sign the player permanently at any time for a further €8m.

Inter Milan are very busy in the transfer window with the capture of Miranda and Kondogbia.

Inter have accepted an offer from Stoke City for Xherdan Shaqiri too, so it appears that manager Roberto Mancini is overseeing a massive overhaul at San Siro this summer.

Although, Liverpool will not be affected with this as they have signed English right back Nathaniel Clyne already.
