Dalbert joined Inter from Nice last summer for €20m but struggled to adjust to Serie A as he started only five of the Nerazzurri’s 38 Serie A matches this season and has made just two appearances since the start of Febraury.
According to Sky Sport, Inter are reportedly close to a deal with Monaco for Dalbert that is a €3m loan with a €24m option to buy him outright fixed at €24m for this time next year.
Dalbert only joined Inter from Monaco’s rivals Nice last summer. However, he has found first team football hard to come by at the San Siro and looks set for a return to France.
It’s not clear if that option would become an obligation after a certain number of appearances.
As least give Piero Ausilio and his staff credit here. Dalbert was a bust. But instead of keeping him around for two or three seasons, Inter have moved quickly to get him off their books and to potential make a small profit on the player.
