Despite Interest From Chelsea & Atletico Madrid Vecino Only Wanted Champions League With Inter

Vecino was destined for European competition in the Nerazzurri colors. On May 20th, he scored the game winner against Lazio to qualify for Champions League. Four months later, in the first Champions League match he once again scores yet another decisive game winning header against Tottenham Hotspur.

During the summer, Chelsea were interested in signing the Uruguayan midfielder as they hired new coach Maurizio Sarri, an admirer of Vecino’s work in the midfield. The Blues wanted a transfer that would see wing back, Davide Zappacosta going to Milan in exchange for Vecino, but Inter were not having it and neither was Vecino.

The London based club was not the only team after Vecino this summer FCInterNews reports. Atletico Madrid had also been interested in signing the Uruguayan midfielder and had reached out to his entourage for a potential transfer. The central midfielder opposed any move to Madrid or London and was set to “See the stars” with Inter. Vecino only wants Champions League with Inter.
