The love between Joao Mario and Inter has never blossomed. 45m to get him to wear the Nerazzurri's jersey, a few played games and a reduced capacity to have an incidence on games. "I'm still worth this amount though" explains the Portuguese midfielder to La Gazzetta dello Sport. "The year I arrived it was impossible to settle, for me but also for Gabigol. First Mancini, then De Boer, then Pioli... There was a lot of confusion and we couldn't have an impact".
What about now? "I wouldn't return to Inter. It's true they've reached the Champions League and I'm happy for my former teammates, but I'm sure I'd miss the needed determination to get redeemed. If I still were an Inter player once the World Cup is over, it wouldn't have sense for me to go on Spalletti's retreat. What if Juve or Milan call me? I would say no. Not because of my Inter past but because I'm not at ease in the Italian league. I'm hoping for a Premier League side call, the top regarding my characteristics. I would also like to play in La Liga though".
