Inter have confirmed that they plan to send new signing Juan Jesus on loan to Novara for the rest of the season.
The Nerazzurri have signed the youngster from Internacional this month, but he’ll have to wait to make his Beneamata debut.
“Juan Jesus is a young player with good quality,” Inter assistant boss Beppe Baresi commented when asked about the Brazilian.
“He knows how to defend really well, but he can also play with the ball at his feet,” continued the San Siro official.
“By sending him out on loan to another Italian club for the next few months, such as Novara, he’ll be able to mature and settle in the world of Italian football.
“That will make him more useful to us when he returns for next season.”
Juan Jesus is 20 and he is believed to have cost the Italian giants just under €4m.
