According to Calciomercato.it, Inter have been approached by Atletico Mineiro for a return to Brazil.

They will take part in the Copa Libertadores and consider Gabigol to be the ideal reinforcement.

If he were to go back home, then Santos would be a more likely option, although Flamengo are also interested.

All of these Brazilian clubs would require help from sponsors to pay his wages.
