Inter's last summer's major signing moves on another loan

Inter's last summer's major signing moves on another loan

Arriving in the summer of 2019 as one of the players who was perfectly suitable for Antonio Conte's style of football Valentino Lazaro was the only reinforcement of Beppe Marotta who disappointed. Despite being paid a hefty €22,000,000, Lazaro played only 323 minutes of Serie A football. The half-season break saw him move to Newcastle where he managed to get 14 caps, although playing just 474 minutes.

Now, the 24-year-old is coming back to Bundesliga on a loan again, as Borussia Monchengladbach secured its services for the next season. The German side paid around €1,200,000 for the loan alone and the deal has an optional buy clause of €15,000,000. Borussia will pay the player's €500,000 a season salary while he's on loan.

Lazaro tasted Bundesliga football for the first time in 2017 when he moved to Hertha from Red Bull Salzburg after six years in the Austrian league. Lazaro played in 65 games for the capital club across all competitions before Inter snapped him up.

Now, Lazaro will once again play under his former Salzburg manager Marco Rose. Monchengladbach's sporting director Max Eberl believes that Lazaro's ability to play across all positions on the right side provides much value to the team.

"We are very happy that the loan went through and that Tino has chosen Borussia. He’s a very flexible player who will give our team even more quality and depth," said Eberl.

Borussia qualified for the elite continental football after a great last season and it played a role in Lazaro choosing Borussia-Park as his home for the next year.

"I can’t wait to play in the Bundesliga and the Champions League with this fantastic club," wrote the 24-year-old.

Despite making barely any impact at the club, Lazaro wrote a message to the Nerazzurri.

"To all Inter fans: thank you for your messages. I was pleased to receive them all, but I decided to play next season in Germany. I wish you good luck for the Europa League final and for next season."
