Ryan Bertrand may leave Southampton to join either Atletico Madrid or Inter Milan

Ryan Bertrand may leave Southampton

The Daily Mail have broken the news on Thursday that Ryan Bertrand may leave Southampton this summer.

29-year-old Bertrand is under contract at St Mary’s until 2021.

Last season, the reliable left-back played 24 times for Southampton in the Premier League, scoring once.

Bertrand, who won the Champions League with Chelsea back in 2012, has now been linked with a possible switch to two massive European clubs.

Atletico Madrid vs Inter Milan

The Mail say that Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan are both interested in signing Bertrand. Readers are told:

Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid are ready to move for Southampton full-back Ryan Bertrand as the south coast club appear ready to cash in on the 29-year-old this summer.

To the possible chagrin of Southampton fans, the Mail also suggest that Bertrand could leave the south coast for a relatively small sum:

Southampton are expected to demand around £15m but Atletico and Inter are both hopeful a deal can be struck for Bertrand for less than £10m.

Other points of note on the Mail’s Ryan Bertrand update

(1) Bayern Munich are also name-dropped as a possible suitor for the Southampton full-back, although the Bavarians’ interest in Bertrand feels slightly weak.

(2) Should Bertrand leave Southampton, the plan is for Matt Targett to assume the left-back role for the Saints.
