Agent: "Palacios and Real Madrid? No agreement. We would love to play for Inter. Zanetti called me..."
A complete midfielder with excellent technique accompanied by tenacity and desire to fight on the pitch. It is no coincidence that we are talking about a protagonist of Copa Libertadores winner River Plate. And with his talent, Exequiel Palacios could soon move to Europe and surprisingly it might not be in Spain but in Italy.
Speaking to FCIN, agent Renato Corsi expresses great enthusiasm about the possibility of wearing the black and blue colors of Inter. But first, Corsi makes sure European clubs understand that his client is doing fine after suffering an injury.
“The player is fine. Doctors have decided that having an operation is not necessary and the injury is not as serious as previously predicted. The fibula is not the tibia or the knee and it does not require surgery. Exequiel has already started the rehab process and last Monday, he exercised on the bicycle. I believe that in about a month, a month at a half at most, he will be able to return to play football. This week, he should start running or at least doing some light jogging.
“Real Madrid? We do not have a definitive agreement with them. We had meetings but negotiations are not closed. We were about to finish everything but then, just because of a tiny fracture on the fibula, we weren’t able to. And now, this subject is on stand by so we will see. In the meantime, I can reveal to you that I know for sure Inter directors are interested in the player. Zanetti called me when we were negotiating for Palacios’s transfer to Real Madrid and I was very pleased. I told him that the player and myself would be honored to sign for Inter.
“There is no difference between Inter and Real Madrid. Zanetti is our compatriot, an idol. We are talking also about a great person here. At Inter today there are Lautaro and Icardi and we would play in Milan as well. Palacios has a release clause of €15M and Real Madrid would pay a bit more to facilitate the transfer even quicker. Like I said before, it was almost all done with Real Madrid. But then the injury stopped everything. They would like to wait to see the complete recovery of my client.
“We welcome Inter as an option for the future. Very much so. For both myself and Palacios. He is young, only 20 years old and we will wait for his recovery. I repeat, he would love to play for the Nerazzurri. He is similar to Cambiasso. We are talking about a complete midfielder, with fine technique, great aggression and monstrous physique.”
