Inter Milan striker Joaquin Correa could reportedly return to Argentina through the gates of River Plate.

The 29-year-old joined the Nerazzurri in 2021, joining head coach Simone Inzaghi on his path from Lazio to Inter.

However, he failed to produce the goods in two underwhelming years at Appiano Gentile. Therefore, the club opted to send him on loan to Olympique Marseille last summer.

Yet, Correa couldn’t make a positive impact in Southern France. He made 19 appearances across all competitions, and wasn’t able to register a single goal or assist.

Therefore, the Ligue 1 side decided against maintaining his services on a permanent basis.

Therefore, the Argentine will rejoin Inzaghi’s ranks as he awaits to learn his fate.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport via FcInterNews, River Plate have emerged as a candidate to sign Correa.

The source believes it would be an excellent solution for all parties involved, but it remains to be seen if the deal can materialize.

River Plate Want Inter Milan Striker Joaquin Correa But Saudi Move More Financially Plausible

The second striker’s remaining amortization cost currently weighs 8,5 million euros on the club’s balance sheet. So selling him below this amount would constitute a capital loss for the Nerazzurri.

The player also has a yearly net salary of 3.5 million euros. These figures could be beyond River Plate’s financial capabilities.

Therefore, the Italian champions are still hoping for a Saudi suitor to surface.

After all, the Saudi Pro League clubs have the financial means to appease Inter and offer the player lucrative wages.

Correa’s contract with the Serie A giants will expire in June 2025.
