Thiago Motta set for summer exit?

Thiago Motta’s agent has confirmed that the midfielder is unlikely to leave Inter this January, but has refused to say the same for the summer transfer window.

There have been whispers that the Brazilian-born, Italian international could be sold this window as he enters the final 18 months of his contract at San Siro. Contract talks have yet to begin, whilst there has been no official comment from the Nerazzurri on the No 8’s future.

Speaking to Calciomercatoweb.it, the 29-year-old’s agent Dario Canovi confirmed that there is clarity only until the end of the season.

“At the moment there is no news regarding Thiago. With Motta on the field do Inter earn more points? We hope that the Nerazzurri think this way.

“I think that at the end of the season it is a good time to ask Inter what their assessment is.

“For a player though, it is never nice to get into the final year of a contract.”

Motta won the League, Cup and European Cup treble in his first season with Inter and recently broke into the Italian national set-up, qualifying through his grandparents’ heritage.
