Borja Valero’s agent dismisses the midfielder’s prospects of leaving Inter

The representative of Borja Valero has said that the midfielder is content with the proceedings at Inter Milan and has no ambition of parting ways with the club this summer. The 34-year-old has been with the Nerazzurri for the past two seasons and during this period, he has racked 75 appearances across all competitions for the side.

Speaking in a press gathering outside of Inter’s headquarters, agent Alejandro Camaro insisted that his client is pleased with the situation at the Nerazzurri and it is certain that he would remain with the club beyond the summer, he said: “Inter is his team and he is very happy at Inter, it is a marvellous squad. He is very happy at Inter. He will play for the Nerazzurri and it is 100% certain that he will stay.”

The Nerazzurri did not have the best of endings to the previous campaign but they nonetheless managed to cement the fourth spot which has assured them of Champions League football for the second season running. Despite this, the board decided to part ways with manager Luciano Spalletti and they have now recruited Antonio Conte with the aim of pushing the title.

Meanwhile, the club are on the hunt for top-class recruits and their recent focus has been on Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku. Conte had failed with an approach to land the Belgium international when he was the manager of Chelsea and reports suggest that the Italian fancies a fresh attempt to pursue the marksman. Lukaku has been with the Red Devils for the past two seasons and during this period, he has racked 42 goals across all competitions. Still, his future has remained a subject of speculation with reports emerging that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would prefer replacing him with a more mobile striker. United are likely to demand around £80m for the Belgian’s sale.

Germany international speaks about the prospect of playing for Inter Milan

Germany and Hoffenheim midfielder Nico Schulz has spoken about his dream of playing for Inter Milan in the future. The 25-year-old has made tremendous progress over the past year in the Bundesliga and this has been recognised with his regular selection to the German national squad since the World Cup.

Speaking to, Schulz acknowledged that he has the ambition of playing regular Champions League football in the future and the Nerazzurri remain his preferred destination. He added that he has no desperation to leave Hoffenheim at the moment and would be content to stay put, if no big offers come by in the forthcoming years.

He said: “I would like to play for a European top club one day. There are some extraordinary clubs that play in the Champions League every year. It is still a dream for me and Inter has always been my dream team. I am very calm, especially because I am in a big club like Hoffenheim already and I feel very good. Even if I do not leave the club, I will still be a happy person.”

Schulz has managed six caps for the Germany national side over the past year where he has scored two goals in the process. One of those came during the Euro 2020 qualifier against the Netherlands this month where he bagged a late winner after the scores were tied at 2-2. Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane scored for the former World Cup champions in a dominant first half display against the Dutch and they could have easily scored more, barring some last-ditch defending from Ronald Koeman’s side.

The second half, however, produced a different game with the Dutch levelling the scores through Matthijs de Ligt and Memphis Depay, but Schulz managed to come off the bench to secure the winning strike in the 90th minute.
