The forward has already put pen to paper with Inter on a five-year contract, but remains on loan with the Delfini for another season.

“It will be a game like the others for me, although I cannot disguise there will be some other feelings mixed in,” Caprari told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“But if next year I really want to play at San Siro, then I have to focus on doing well for Pescara this season.”

Caprari had been repeatedly linked with Juventus, but eventually signed for the Nerazzurri.

“It was all done with Juve, then they disappeared and at the last minute told me they were pulling out of the deal. It was only later that Inter came along. It was better this way, as at least they really wanted me.

“I was already close to Inter when Andrea Stramaccioni took over, as he called me up, but in the end I didn’t go. I owe a lot to Stramaccioni, as he turned me into a wide player at the Roma youth academy. Every time I score a goal, he sends me a text message of compliments.

“When I signed for Inter, he was one of the first to call and congratulate me.”

Pescara already caused an upset by holding Napoli to a 2-2 draw and their 2-1 defeat to Sassuolo was overturned by the Disciplinary Commission due to an irregularly fielded player.

Inter stuttered under Frank de Boer, scraping one point from two games against Chievo and Palermo, so are Pescara the favourites this evening?

“We have certainly worked together more and were able to prepare for this match. Inter had all their internationals away and won’t have had that luxury,” added Caprari.

“The important thing is that we don’t change our style of football, because we’ve proved that we do well with our identity. Against Inter I expect a similar game to the one with Napoli.”

The Delfini had gone 2-0 up early doors in that clash only to be pegged back 2-2 by a Dries Mertens brace.
