Agent: ‘Inter humiliating Gabigol!’

Gabriel Barbosa’s agent says his aim is for the Inter striker to “no longer be humiliated” warning “we’ll resolve the situation in January”.

The Brazilian joined the Nerazzurri for a fee of almost €30m in the summer, but has played just 16 minutes since completing his move from Santos.

“I talk to him constantly,” Wagner Ribeiro said on Radio Globo.

“Everyone knows the salary which Gabriel receives at Inter isn’t sustainable for Santos, no club [in Brazil] can afford him.

“I was contacted by a club from Rio and one from Minas to take Gabriel on loan, but I can’t guarantee anything. What I want is for my client to no longer be humiliated.

“Why isn’t he playing? Not even Inter can answer that.

“When he came from Brazil they said he wasn’t ready physically, but now he’s in great shape. The truth is that they haven’t even given him a chance.

“Gabriel was a starter at Santos, called-up by Brazil and has been an Olympic champion. Then he was sold for an amazing figure.

“We’ll resolve this situation in January, he has a five-year contract but that doesn’t mean anything if he isn’t playing.

“He’s unhappy right now.”
