Inter-owned left-back Dalbert is happy to be on loan with Cagliari, and he hopes that he is able to establish himself at the Sardinian club.
Speaking at his official unveiling as a Cagliari player, as reported by FCInterNews, the 27-year-old expressed a desire for continuity and acknowledged that his time with the Nerazzurri may be over.
The Brazilian joined Inter from Nice in the summer of 2017, but he failed to really establish himself in the team under then-manager Luciano Spalletti, before he was sent out on loan the past two seasons to Fiorentina and then Rennes.
It was widely thought that the player’s time with the Nerazzurri this summer would not be much, with the club not considering him to be in the plans and searching for another destination for him, but a number of clubs came forward for him and in the end the Rossoblu won the chase for his signature.
The Brazilian decided on a move to Sardinia over offers from clubs in Russia and Turkey, and he revealed the influence of an Inter teammate on his decision in the form of Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan:
“He talked to me very well about the city, the team, the facilities, and the people. I spoke to him, and then to the agent and the coach.”
When asked about whether he would like to settle at his new club permanently after having his recent career mostly marked by loan spells, he indicated that he would enjoy this.
“I’m working well,” the Brazilian stated, “I’m happy to wear this shirt. I want to repay their confidence in me on the pitch, I hope to do well and to stay longer here.”
