Inter sign two Chelsea targets in one day: Brazilian starlet Gabriel Barbosa – known as Gabigol- from Santos and Joao Mario from Sporting Lisbon.

The Brazilian talent, that won the golden medal with his national team at Rio games last weeks, received four offers from European top clubs, as his agent said yesterday, but he chose Inter. The other clubs should be Juventus, Barcelona and, as we reported in the past weeks, Chelsea. His transfer fee should be around € 25m.

Joao Mario also arrives after a long negotiation between Inter and Sporting, with the Nerazzurri that will pay him € 45m, € 10m now and the rest in the next three years.

The Italian side announced their arrival on their official Twitter account a couple of minutes ago.

Brazilian side’s president Modesto Roma told Goal.com“We had productive conversations, but we didn’t come to buy or sell players, neither in London or Madrid”.

“We came to build up relationships. There weren’t offers, but we did talk about partnerships. I talked to Manchester United, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid”.

According to the Evening Standard Santos chairman Modesto Roma were in London on Tuesday to seal the deal to bring Thiago Maia to Chelsea, but the deal has yet to be done.
