Santos President José Carlos Peres confirms talks with Inter to hold on to Gabriel Barbosa - “he wants to stay”.
The Brazilian was a flop with the Nerazzurri, scoring only once and failing to make a single start.
A loan spell with Benfica was also a disaster, so he returned to his first club on a loan deal which expires in January.
Known as Gabigol, the striker is the top scorer in the Brazilian Serie A with 17 goals in 33 games this season.
“We’re talking to the agents and Inter,” Peres told BandSports.
