Milito eyes Destro arrival at Inter

Inter's Diego Milito thinks that Siena striker Mattia Destro is good enough to play for the Nerazzurri in 2012-13.

The former youth team player is currently co-owned by Siena and Genoa, but the Beneamata want him back at San Siro.

“Destro trained with us during the treble winning season under Jose Mourinho,” the Argentine veteran told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“You could already see back then that he was a great attacker, complete, technically good, and that was confirmed by his last campaign at Siena. He also still has plenty of time ahead of him to improve.”

Inter sold Destro to Genoa as part of the deal to net Andrea Ranocchia, he then spent last season on loan at Siena and they have now exercised their right to buy a 50 per cent cut in him.

Destro, after 12 goals in Serie A last term, is also wanted by Juventus and Roma.

While it is unclear whether the Under-21 international will arrive, it seems certain that the 33-year-old will again be leading the club’s attack.

“I want to stay at Inter and I hope to do so until June 2014,” the former Genoa man, who scored 24 League goals last term, added.

“It’s nice to hear that I’m untouchable. I’ve always said that it’s magnificent here. My teammates, the club and the fans make me feel loved.

“I will never be able to repay the Interisti for the affection which I have been shown…”
