Cardiff City are unwilling to let defensive midfielder cum centre-back Gary Medel leave on the cheap, and are hoping to recoup at least the £11 million that they splashed out for him in last season’s transfer window.

Inter Milan have reportedly made a £10 million bid for the Chile international, but Cardiff chairman Mehmet Dalman has hit back and was quoted as saying on WalesOnline,

“We are not going to take a loss on a player who was a World Cup star in Brazil.” 

Medel, who started all four of Chile’s World Cup games, has, along with Inter Milan, been interesting Galatasaray of late, but Medel is supposedly keen on a move to Serie A.

The 26 year old made 34 starts for Cardiff last season, and made a good start to the campaign, before his form dipped towards the end of the season as did Cardiff’s.

If Medel does end up at Inter, which does look likely, then they will be gaining a robuste midfielder who is not afraid to go in for a tackle, and will always put his body on the line.
