‘Montoya not returning to Barça’

Barcelona’s international sporting director denies reports Martin Montoya could return from Inter in January.

The full-back joined the Nerazzurri on loan this summer, but has so far not made a single appearance for Roberto Mancini’s side.

With the club’s sporting director Piero Ausilio heading to Catalonia this week, there has been speculation the 24-year-old could return in Janaury, but Ariedo Braida denies those rumours.

“I don’t think his trip has to do with the transfer market,” he told FCInterNews.
