Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta has made it clear that he is ready to return to Inter Milan this summer.
The 32-year-old has another year left on his deal at Parc des Princes, but it appears he has decided to leave the Saints at the earliest opportunity.
And while Inter Milan are trying to agree a fee with Paris Saint-Germain, the midfielder admits he would be delighted to rejoin the Nerazzurri.
“Piero Ausilio is doing a perfect job as sporting director at Inter, and I know him well,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“A return there would be a real challenge, as it was for Roberto Mancini in taking over at such a difficult time. It would be challenging but also a natural environment for me where I won everything in my previous spell.
“I think a cycle has ended for me now. I have given and received so much. To stay until the end of my contract would be the comfortable option, but I would not be being honest with myself or with a club I have grown to love. It is not a question of money, but of stimulus.
“I have spoken to the coach and also with the club, and they really want me to stay. But a relationship only works when everybody is 100 per cent, and I don’t think I am. I have won everything in France, and now I feel the same way I did after winning the treble with Inter.”
Having already signed the likes of Geoffrey Kondogbia, Martin Montoya and Jeison Murillo, and also closing in on Ivan Perisic and Stevan Jovetic, Inter are 2.50 (6/4) to achieve a top 3 finish in Serie A.
