Fcinter1908 interviewed Geoffrey Kondogbia’s agent Paolo Schiavone who had many interesting things to say about the negotiations that brought Geoffrey Kondogbia to Inter.
Inter won a very difficult mercato duel and as it seems it wasn’t only Milan, Inter competed with:
“Exactly, Geoffrey is a player of the highest class and there were Champions League-clubs who were interested in him. There were offers from Spain, England and Italy and in Italy it wasn’t only Inter and Milan who were interested in him.”
What did Inter tell him to convince him?
“The player is affascinated by the project that Roberto Mancini proposed to him.”
There are some who claim that Kondogbia went to the club that offered the most…
“This is all false, Kondogbia wanted to join Inter and to go there he accepted a lower offer, he would’ve made more money at Milan. It was never a question about money. Geoffrey wanted a project and he found it at Inter.”
Was Mancini important?
“Mancini is a great coach and Kondogbia is convinced that he will become a lot better with Mancini as coach.”
Is the player happy now?
“He is very happy and I want to thank all the fans for how they welcomed him. He can’t wait to start wearing his number seven shirt.”
