Ramires: ‘Happy to join Inter’

Ramires confirms “I’d be happy to go to Inter” but “I’m still a Jiangsu player and I have to concentrate on preparing with them”.

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with the Nerazzurri, as both clubs are owned by Suning Group.

Given that the Nerazzurri can’t spend in January, it has been suggested he could arrive on a free loan until the end of the season.

“I’m here to start preparation, then we’ll see what happens,” Ramires told Sky from Jiangsu Suning’s pre-season training camp in Marbella.

“If Inter talked with my agent it’s positive, if a great club shows interest in me then it means I’m doing well.

“I’d be happy to go to Inter but I’m still a Jiangsu player and I have to focus on preparing with them, I hope I’ll be ready to play straight away.

“The issue of my wage doesn’t just depend on me, there are several parties and the negotiations must satisfy all of them.

“I hope we can reach an agreement and, who knows, go to Inter. I haven’t talked to [Coach Luciano] Spalletti, I never met him when Inter came to China.

“As a Coach I’ve known about him even before he came to Inter.

“I’m happy such a football connoisseur is following me, but I have to keep doing well here if I hope to return to Europe.”
