Former Inter owner Massimo Moratti claims “maybe I’d have done something so crazy” and brought back Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Ibrahimovic will become a free agent when his contract with LA Galaxy expires in December, and Il Giornale reported earlier that his agent Mino Raiola had spoken to Inter about a sensational return three weeks ago.
The Nerazzurri are currently short in attack after losing Alexis Sanchez to a three-month injury layoff.
“Maybe I’d have done something so crazy,” Moratti told Sport Mediaset.
“Having said that, there’s a balance that needs maintaining and the players already there have to be respected.
“In these cases, all these situations have to be considered.”
The 74-year-old then commented on Antonio Conte’s bright start to life with the Beneamata.
“His way of being and working hasn’t surprised me. It was already known that he’s full-on and serious as a Coach.
“He’s only thinking about Inter and he’s working very well. I think Inter will take their fight down to the wire this season.
“Of course, Juventus have shown that they have a better chance, plus they’ve won the last eight Scudetto so they have a different kind of spirit.
“However, Inter are also showing that they have both the quality and character needed to fight for the title.”
