Joao Mario out of Champions League list. His future...
For now, Joao Mario is not leaving Inter. The Portuguese knew that since Wednesday that there were no concrete chances to return to the Premier League after the experience at West Ham and of course, the last day of the English window did not bring any surprises.
For the former Sporting player, only loan with option to buy offers came and Inter decided to refuse them. Not because Joao is part of Spalletti’s plan (he will not be included on the Champions League list), but because Gardini, Ausilio and Baccin hope to see a better offer, maybe loan with obligation to buy conditioned by either Champions League qualification for a good team or the ability to avoid relegation for a lesser club.
Will this preference to wait pay off in the end? We do not have to wait for too long as transfer window for other countries will close on August 31st.
