Martín Montoya unfortunately hasn't gotten much time at Barcelona, but it seems like he's getting some chances elsewhere.

Sources told Barça Blaugranes on Monday that the deal between the Blaugrana and the Nerazzurri is done, and they're ready to announce it as soon as possible. Right now, Montoya and the Italian club are working on some salary details before they sign a contract.

As reported last week, the Spanish full-back will sign a two-year loan agreement, and Inter will have an €8 million buy option at the end of the deal. If they don't exercise it, then he just returns to the Catalan club for the final year of his contract.

Without opportunities with Luis Enrique last season, Montoya wanted a January departure, but he decided to stick around, and played a little more, including a Champions League appearance which granted him the right to be called a Treble winner. But with the signing of Aleix Vidal, it looks like the right-back will not get a real shot at Dani Alves' job for the upcoming years.

For a very solid player who just needs more time to become a very good one, playing in a tough, physical Serie A football could help his development.

See you in two years, Monty. Maybe.
