FIFA agent Gianfranco Cicchetti spoke on the Inter mercato, first about those possibly leaving.
“Pablo Daniel Osvaldo had started the season well, but above all that he is a great talent with potential remains unquestioned. His character is difficult and it again betrayed him, putting him on the edge of Mancini’s project. I think he can still stay in Italy. Torino and Cagliari would take him gladly, but it would not surprise me to see him in the Rossoneri shirt, especially if the Rossoneri were able to give Pazzini and Niang. Abroad, Boca Juniors and Sunderland are the clubs most interested in him.”
“Yann M’Vila at the moment is really a mysterious object. He repeated the standards that have marked his last two seasons in Russia, which is so very disappointing. He’s only 24 years old and has important potential that I definitely would try to recover from now to the end of the season before letting him go.”
On possible incoming transfers: “So much affects the physical conditions of Palacio, whose risk of operation risks the strategy of the Nerazzurri. Mancini would like Fabio Quagliarella of Torino, who could be exchanged with Osvaldo. But I would not rule out surprise options for him, especially from Russian and Ukrainian markets, where there are several interesting opportunities, even at a good price.”
Signing Lukas Podolski and Xherdan Shaqiri: “With these two new signings Inter already has a higher gear, the breakthrough could be definitive if the Nerazzurri were able to sign a strong midfielder and a reliable defender. Much will depend on the possible disposals that Inter will manage to find from here until February 2nd.”
Author’s note: Hear we go again with Quagliarella…
What do you think of the agent’s words on Osvaldo and M’Vila? Do you agree? What about with those regarding Quagliarella, a midfielder, and a defender?
