In an interview with Romanian news outlet Digi Sport, Ionut Andrei Radu has admitted he would be open to a return to Inter at the end of the current season.

Reports in recent weeks and months have suggested that Inter could utilise Radu as Samir Handanovic’s back up starting next season whilst others have stated that Inter could use him as part of a deal to land another goalkeeper who could be back up to Handanovic.

“You will see where I will play in a few months time. It would make me proud to go back to Inter, we will see what happens. I still have a contract with them until 2024 but I can’t tell you everything now,” the youngster began the interview.

The Romanian national team shot stopper is currently out on loan at Parma but has not played at all for them and he has discussed how he has dealt with this.

“This is an obstacle that can arise in the career of a footballer but rather than break me down, it must strengthen me. The fact I have not played recently is something that actually motivates me.

“I understand that I have to give more both physically and mentally. In the future I will learn from this experience in order to not end up in this situation again.

“It is frustrating for any player not to be a starter but I am aware of my ability and this reassures me.”

He concluded the interview by revealing who his goalkeeping idol was when he was growing up.

“I can’t say that I have a certain style to my game because I try to train my own style but when I was little I liked Petr Cech.”

This season Radu has made 19 appearances across all competitions to date, all of which came during the first half of the Serie A season which he spent out on loan at Genoa.
