Agent: "Keita is very happy to return to Italy. His talent and quality will be at Spalletti's disposal"
Speaking to RMC Sport, Roberto Calenda, Keita’s agent, discusses the transfer of his client to Inter.
“This idea was born a long time ago even if it was not easy to implement. He has proven that he has great potential and can cover multiple roles in the attack as a modern forward. Keita will be an extra weapon in the hands of Inter.”
Will he be a starter?
“He is at Inter to be available to the club. He knows that he is at a big club with tradition and with great players. The team is already equipped with champions and he knows that he will have to prove himself.”
Can he play as first forward?
“He is flexible and knows how to play in different positions: first or second forward, winger, but it depends on the coaches and their ideas on how they want to use him. He has talent and quality and will make them available at Inter’s disposal.”
How much did he really want to return to Serie A?
“He was very happy with the choice that he made last year. It was a period of high tensions and luckily, everything was resolved. Monaco wanted him and now returning Italy, at Inter, is right decision.”
Were there other teams besides Monaco last year?
“More than one, it is normal that big teams pay attention to players like Keita but let’s not return to last year. Now he is back in Italy, at a great team. I believe everything will go well.”
Are Inter the main rival to Juventus?
“In my opinion, they were before. I see a good squad here. The Italian league is never easy and there are surprises and tactically equipped teams. Inter now have a good backbone in what they want to do, a solid foundation and Keita is a good addition for the coach.”
