Walter Sabatini is trying to sign Stéphane Mbia for Jiangsu Suning, a deal which would allow Ramires to leave China and join Inter.
Sabatini has been trying for weeks to set up a loan between Inter and Jiangsu Suning for the Brazilian, but Jiangsu Coach Fabio Capello wants a replacement before he will allow Ramires to leave.
Calciomercato.com is reporting that Sabatini is working on a solution, which would involve Mbia moving to Jiangsu Suning.
The Cameroon international is already at Hebei China Fortune, so they wouldn’t have to pay the 100 per cent tax which is levied on signings from abroad.
If Mbia were to arrive, it would free Ramires to make the move to Inter.
