Thiago Motta sent Inter President Massimo Moratti a text message requesting that he be allowed to join Paris Saint-Germain.
That is according to a report in Le Parisien today following the midfielder’s January move from San Siro to France.
“Please Mr Moratti, give me a gift – let me leave for Paris,” the Brazilian-born Italian international allegedly wrote.
Motta, 29, reportedly cost Paris SG €11.5m.
The Italian club replaced the South American with Sampdoria’s Angelo Palombo and Fredy Guarin of Porto.
