Moratti: 'Kovacic a good deal'

Ex-Inter patron Massimo Moratti said selling Mateo Kovacic to Real Madrid for €35m “seems like a good deal, as he had a lot more to prove.”

It was Moratti who signed the Croatia international from Dynamo Zagreb for €11m plus bonuses in January 2013.

“I have nothing more to do with Inter’s finances and do not look at the Financial Fair Play, but it seems like a good deal,” Moratti told Sport Mediaset.

“I believe it was a wise move. After all, the player had a lot more to prove. He was my final big signing and we paid circa €14m for him.

“I am neither happy nor sad to see Kovacic go, but I repeat, I think it was a good move.

“What do I make of the new Inter squad? We haven’t seen anything yet, so let’s wait and see.”
