Inter Milan are keen to do a deal to re-sign Cristiano Biraghi but the defender is on course to pen a new deal with Fiorentina.
The 26-year-old began his career with Inter but struggled to make the breakthrough into the first team on a regular basis and ended up joining Pescara, before Fiorentina snapped him.
The left-back has impressed since and that has kicked off suggestions Inter would like to take him back.
The player’s agent Mario Giuffredi says he does not blame Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio for selling his client earlier on in his career, but has ruled out an imminent return.
“Ausilio did not make a mistake, Biraghi simply was not ready for Inter,” he told Corriere dello Sport.
“He lacked the personality that he has discovered under Stefano Pioli. He is an Inter fan and they really like him there.”
Giuffredi then confirmed there is also plenty of interest from elsewhere, but a new deal with Fiorentina is more likely.
“Another two Coaches who really like him are Milan’s Gennaro Gattuso and Sassuolo’s Roberto De Zerbi,” he added,”Milan thought of signing him under the previous ownership but for now we are focused on Fiorentina, with whom we are close to signing a renewal with.”
