Joao Mario admits “I’d like to play more” and “will see” whether or not he stays at Inter in January.
Joao Mario has started just three games so far this season, and with the World Cup right around the corner the midfielder refused to rule out the possibility of leaving Inter in January at a Press conference for Portugal’s friendly against Saudi Arabia on Friday.
“I can’t do anything, but obviously I’d like to play more, like many others in my position.”
“I think things can change and that’s what I’m focusing most on. One way or another, I’ll play more, I’m not worried.
“PSG? Rumours are normal and part of football. I always stay focused. I don’t want to get distracted because I’m used to it.
“We’ll see. I think it’s still early and there’s still a long time until the transfer window reopens.
“We’ll see what’s going to happen and I’ll make a decision on what’s best for my career.”
According to Sky Italia Inter would not be disappointed to see Joao Mario leave during the January window. The report said that:
“He’s been inconsistent and has failed to show character and determination on the pitch. He also has very few assists to his name, regardless of the fact that he doesn’t start many games.”
Under the guidance of Kia Joorabchian, Suning were taken for €70m for Joaa Mario and Gabigol. It looks like they are looking to rid themselves of two bad deals.
