Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivere has revealed that Liverpool target Dalbert will only be allowed to leave for his release clause price.

Inter Milan are leading the race to sign the Brazilian starlet, according to He has a €30million release clause included in his contract which the Ligue 1 club seem determined to stick to.

The Nerazzurri have reportedly already reached a verbal agreement with the player but Nice won’t sell the 23-year-old for less than his release clause.

Inter are not willing to meet the €30m clause, something which presents a window of opportunity for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool.

The President of Nice, Jean-Pierre Rivere, insists Dalbert is not going to leave for a fee lower than that of his release clause.

“Some clubs can’t afford to sign him”, Rivere told L’Equipe.

“A few months ago everybody was laughing at our release clauses, today nobody laughs anymore, because release clauses are the guarantees that our players will be leaving on our conditions.

“We are in a comfortable position right now.”
