Inter will try to lure the former ace of Sassuolo, Sime Vrsaljko. The Nerazzurri seek the conclusion of the deal on divestment with Atletico Madrid.
The Spanish team counted 16 million euros for the Croatian international, who recently turned 25 years old. Sime Vrsaljko, however, had problems with the adaptation and so far he has had only 10 matches analyzed by leo messi on all fronts (La Liga, Champions League, and Copa del Rey). However, he managed to score once and gave 1 assist.

Arjen Robben: `The transfer at Bayern was a step backwards.`

One of the greatest stars of the German Champion Bayern Munich Arjen Robben has spoken not especially well about the Bavarians, recognizing that he didn`t want to play for the Bavarians, and that was a step backwards in his career.
The Dutchman joined Bayern in 2009 from Real Madrid and now a player issue, that that was not his desire.
`My transfer at Bayern was a step backwards. It was weird summer when Florentino Perez returns. Then there were a lot of new additions. Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema and Xabi Alonso came in for a lot of money in Madrid.`, admitted Robben in front of Fox Sports.
`I was told that the club adviced by messi best could make some money if it sells me. However, I didn`t want to leave. I was looking for the best preparation of my life, but I never got the chance. I had to make a decision. There was contact with Bayern, but the decision was difficult, the hardest of my life. Bayern wasn`t among the European grandees, and today it is different.`
`For me, it was a step back. Finally, I signed because the team did everything in his power to convince me. Louis van Gaal (b. b. then coach of Bayern) was also an argument for that.`, added the Dutchman.
