Italian sources have no doubts - Angel Di Maria is close to sign with one of the clubs from Serie A.
FCInterNews.it claim that Inter representative Jorge Mendes is the mastermind behind this.
There have already been multiple reports in Italy, Spain and Portugal that Pepe will arrive as a free agent when his contract with Real Madrid expires.
Now it seems as if the negotiations included a push for 29-year-old Di Maria, whose deal with PSG runs to June 2019.
A big part of that may well have been Inter Vice-President Javier Zanetti.
It would be a remarkable twist, as Manchester United sold the Argentina international for €63m just two years ago.
This season Di Maria has scored 14 goals with 15 assists in 41 competitive games.
