Inter midfielder Joao Mario reveals he ‘would like to play in La Liga’, as he seeks ‘new experiences’ after returning from loan at Lokomotiv Moscow.
After a six-month stint at West Ham in 2018, Joao Mario was loaned out to the Russian side ahead of 2019-20 season and seems set to move again this summer.
It has been a difficult time at San Siro and the Portugal international reveals he would be open for a move to Spain.
“I want to try new experiences. I would like to play in La Liga because I think it’s the League that suits me best,” he told AS. “I like the way Spanish teams play.
“The culture at Sporting, where I grew up, is very close to Spanish football. I think I would adapt quickly.
“I would love to play in Spain. There are great teams there, it’s very competitive. Looking at the competitions where I have not played, that’s the one that attracts me the most.”
But he will choose wisely, as he is looking to claim a place in the Portugal squad ahead of Euro 2020 next summer.
“The next goal is to find a project that helps me stay in the national team for the European Championship.
“I’m sure we will find it and that I will be able to play regularly and be a starter for Portugal. “
He admitted that his time with Inter was complicated.
“I arrived at the end of the summer, in a time of great change. Inter were about to sign with Frank de Boer.
“It was a difficult season because the Inter project was in difficulty. In any case, it remains the one where I did best and have my best memories.”
