In an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio, former Inter winger Keita Balde has refused to rule out the possibility of a return to Inter in the future.

The Senegalese national team player spent the 2017/18 season on loan with the club from Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco and Inter did have an option to buy him but opted not to in the end.

“I really miss Italian football, I grew up in Italy with Lazio and then I also spent a year at Inter. I’m happy to be here at Monaco because I like meeting new people, new languages ​​and having new experiences,” Balde explained in the interview which was broadcast on Di Marzio’s official Instagram page on Wednesday night.

“In the future I cannot rule out a return to Italy. The year I left Lazio I was very close to Juventus, a transfer that did not materialise in the end.

“I was sorry that my adventure with Inter lasted only a year, I wanted to stay there for a long time. I cannot rule out that one day our paths may cross again.

“I kept in touch with everyone, it was a fantastic experience with a wonderful group of players. I still have a special relationship with Candreva, D’Ambrosio and Gagliardini.”

He then went on to share his views on the current global Coronavirus pandemic which has caused football all over the world to come to a halt for the foreseeable future.

“Unfortunately it is a delicate situation all over the world. I have some relatives in Spain, others in Senegal. I am in Montecarlo with my partner and my child.

“There is great organisation here, people follow the advice and the rules. I hope the situation can be resolved as soon as possible so we can return to normal life.”

Balde has made a donation of €50,000 to help in the fight against Coronavirus and he explained that he made this gesture off his own accord and was not pushed by anyone to do so.

“I am a person who does what he can for his family, friends and people I love. I made this donation wholeheartedly, you have to do things without waiting for someone to look for you to do it. I try to give my best.”
