Inter Milan wingback Franco Carboni has chosen to join River Plate on loan despite the interest of Venezia.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

Argentine youth team international Carboni spent last season on loan with Monza and then Ternana.

Carboni joined the Brianzoli on loan during the January transfer window of the 2022-23 season.

The 21-year-old had been playing on loan with Cagliari for the first half of the campaign. The Rossoblu had signed Carboni on loan during the summer transfer window in 2022.

Carboni made thirteen appearances for the Sardinians in Serie B, as they won promotion straight back to Serie A after having been relegated from the top flight last season.

However, the Argentine made the switch to Monza in Serie A in the January window.

Reportedly, Inter considered the lack of playing time at Cagliari that he’d been getting to be a major factor in deciding on a different solution for Carboni.

Monza signed Carboni on an initial loan deal. The Lombard team had a purchase option on the Argentine worth €7 million.

Then, Inter had a buyback clause worth €8.5 million had Monza exercised their option.

Then last January, Carboni was on the move again. Once again, playing time was the main factor.

The Argentine made the switch to Ternana in Serie B.

There, Carboni featured regularly. He made a total of nineteen appearances over the second half of the campaign in the league.

This summer, the 21-year-old has once again been looking for a new club.

And according to the Gazzetta, it will be back in his native Argentina that Carboni plays his football going forward.

Carboni’s move to River Plate is imminent. The Argentine giant have agreed an eighteen-month loan deal to sign him.

River will have a 5 million purchase option on Carboni. And then there will be a 10 million buyback option for Inter.

Carboni himself has already agreed personal terms with River.

Serie A new boys Venezia had also registered an interest in signing Carboni. But the Argentine has chosen River as his next club.
