Gabigol drops Inter hint

Gabriel Barbosa has hinted that he could return to Inter. “I have a contract for two more years, my Flamengo loan lasts until the end of this year...”

Gabigol has rediscovered the form that earned him a €29.5m transfer to Inter in 2016, bagging a brace in Flamengo’s 2-0 Copa Libertadores win against Emelec last time out.

“The affection of the fans was very nice,” the forward said after the game.

“The obviously goals help and so do the wins, but I think it was clear when I played for Santos. They screamed my name when I came to play here.

“I think they see themselves in my energetic ways, which can be a little crazy. I want to enjoy this moment and our upcoming games so I can win something.”

The 22-year-old’s loan with the Brazilian side does not include an option to buy, while the Nerazzurri are short in attack...

“My future doesn’t depend on me. Everyone knows I have a contract with Inter for two more years. My Flamengo loan lasts until the end of this year...

“Like I said, I hope these upcoming games are positive.”
