Yuto Nagatomo set for Inter Milan deal after Liverpool, United talk - agent
Yuto Nagatomo is on the verge of signing a new contract with Inter Milan after reportedly turning down approaches from Liverpool and Manchester United.
Nagatomo's agent Federico Pastorello told fcinter1908.it that he had received offers from English clubs for the Japan full-back, whose contract is up for renewal in the summer, but added he "wants to stay in Italy, more precisely with Inter."
"We don't have any meetings scheduled and there is no news right now, but I think there will be something very soon," Pastorello added.
The 29-year-old is expected to sign a new three-year deal, according to Il Corriere dello Sport, which names Liverpool and Manchester United as the teams he has turned down.
The player told Inter Channel earlier this month that he had rejected an offer from the Red Devils since he has his heart sat on staying at Inter.
"I like everything about Inter and I want to stay here," he said "It's my desire to remain here, which is why I turned down Manchester United. I have a great relationship with [Inter coach Roberto] Mancini."
Nagatomo joined the Nerazzurri from Cesena in 2011 and has made 167 appearances for them. After spending time on the bench for much of the first half of the season, he has become a regular starter more recently.
