Milito would relish Lavezzi arrival

Diego Milito is excited about the possibility of playing alongside Ezequiel Lavezzi at Inter next season.

The Napoli ace is expected to leave the Stadio San Paolo as Inter and Paris Saint-Germain continue to be linked with his services.

“I like to play with champions and Lavezzi is one of those,” the former Genoa hitman told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He is a player who can make the difference, but I can honestly say that I haven’t spoken to him about a possible move here.”

As well as Lavezzi, the Beneamata have been paired with Siena’s Mattia Destro – a player who grew up in their youth ranks before being sacrificed in the deal that saw Andrea Ranocchia signed from Genoa in 2011.

“You could already tell that Destro was a great player while he was with us during the Jose Mourinho days,” the veteran continued. “I think he’s good enough for a great club.”

There was some uncertainty over Milito’s future at San Siro given his faltering start to the campaign, but he ended the season with 24 goals in Serie A.

“I want to stay in Milan until 2014,” he added. “It is my dream to bring the Scudetto back here to repay the affection of the fans.”
