Young Argentine striker Facundo Colidio is back at Inter Milan after his loan to Tigre has ended.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that the 23-year-old may not be back for long as the Nerazzurri could try to send him back as part of a deal for striker Mateo Retegio.

Colidio has been on loan at Tigre since January of 2022.

The Argentine, who joined Inter from Boca Juniors in 2017, returned to his home country after a tough period in European football.

Colidio had a promising spell on loan at Sint-Truiden in the Belgian top flight between 2019 and 2021. However, during the summer transfer window of 2021 things did not work out for the young striker.

Colidio had appeared to be close to a loan move to Austria Vienna for the 2021-22 season. However, that move fell apart close to deadline day.

There was not time enough to locate a different loan club for Colidio before the end of the window.

Facundo Colidio Back At Inter After Successful Tigre Loan Spell

However, after that bitter disappointment things went better for Colidio at Tigre.

The Argentine found form for the ambitious Argentine club. He has scored five goals in 26 league appearances, but his overall play has been important for his team.

Moreover, Colidio has formed a strong partnership in attack with Mateo Retegui.

Retegui has been something of a revelation in the Argentine top flight. He is currently the division’s top scorer.

This has led to a call-up to the Italian national team for the 23-year-old. It has also led to several European teams targeting a move for him.

Inter are foremost among them.

Right now Retegui is only at Tigre on loan from Boca Juniors. However, Tigre can make that move permanent, and then sell the 23-year-old with a sell-on fee going to Boca.

Inter value Colidio at €7-8 million, and could offer the Argentine as part of a deal for Retegui.
