Thiago Motta’s agent reveals why he demanded a January transfer to PSG. “He could no longer find the motivation” to play for Inter.
“It was a chaotic few days, because everything changed so quickly,” Alessandro Canovi told RadioCalciomercato.
“I was in Paris to discuss a June transfer, then it all accelerated when it became clear Inter were ready to sell him immediately.
“Massimo Moratti and Marco Branca understood the player’s state of mind, as he could no longer find the motivation to play with the Nerazzurri until June. Staying to the end of the season would’ve been a difficult situation.
“Claudio Ranieri wanted him to stay, because there are few players like Thiago Motta and it’s only normal a Coach would not be eager to let him go.”
Canovi also confirmed there was a “very soft interest from Manchester City.”
