Motta agent reveals PSG offer

The agent of Thiago Motta has revealed that Inter have received an offer from Paris Saint-Germain for the midfielder.

The Brazilian-born Italian international is being heavily linked with a January switch to Ligue 1 and PSG have made the first move.

“Inter have informed us that they have received an important bid from PSG,” representative Alessandro Canovi told Sport Mediaset.

“We are waiting. Only after Inter have told us of their decision will we communicate our position. His future is in their hands.”

Reports have suggested that Motta has already been in talks with the French giants to discuss personal terms.

“It’s pleasing that people such as Carlo Ancelotti and Leonardo are interested in Thiago, but we haven’t started any economical talks with them,” Canovi continued.

“If Inter and Paris SG find an agreement to sell Motta then we will inform ourselves. Only then would we listen to Paris SG’s offer.

“We haven’t had any contact with the French officials and we haven’t spoken about money. The figures in the newspapers are not real.”

Motta has 18 months left on his contract at Inter – a decisive factor in his proposed imminent San Siro exit.

“Motta has a year and a half left on his deal,” Canovi added. “If there had been a renewal, which we asked for in June, then the situation today would be totally different.”
