Stefano Sensi’s agent confirms “Inter did well to get him first, as Barcelona and Manchester City were already interested over the summer."
The former Sassuolo midfielder made the move on loan for €5m with option to buy for a further €20m, and Nerazzurri directors are working furiously to get the deal locked down as soon as possible.
“It’s not surprising that there is interest,” agent Beppe Riso told Calciomercato.com.
“Antonio Conte wanted him and Inter did well to get him first of all. Interest from Barcelona and Manchester City was already there over the summer, so it’s normal that it’s still going on.”
Conte was criticised for stating that he couldn’t expect much support in the Champions League from players “we got from Sassuolo and Cagliari,” but Riso assures there is truth to it.
“It’s only right that he says that, because Sensi doesn’t have much European experience. He’s earning that now by playing for Inter.”
