Miranda: Two more years

Inter defender Miranda plans to return to Brazil ‘in two years’ but suggests there could be movement as early as next week.

Miranda is going into the new season as Inter’s fourth-choice centre-back following the arrival of his former Atletico Madrid teammate Diego Godin.

Speaking to Brazilian outlet Gazeta do Povo, the 34-year-old revealed his desire to end his career with first club Coritiba.

“I’m a Coritiba fan, I hope they can return to the top tier as soon as possible,” he admitted.

“Seeing them in the Brazilian Serie A is all I want. I have a lot of love for this team.

“I won’t deny that I’d like to come back for a season. My idea is to return to Brazil in a couple of years.

“I left when I was very young. I only played for Coritiba for a year and I’d like another year with them.

“They let me grow as a player. For the respect and gratitude I have for them, I’d like to help them get back among the top sides.

“Talks about my future are ongoing, let’s see what happens. It depends on many things. Let’s see what happens next week.”
