Inter Milan, Santos press for Gabigol

06 January at 16:20
Gabriel Barbosa has never really been given the chance to shine at Inter Milan, most recently spending a loan spell with Brazilian club Santos; where 'Gabigol' was signed from for Inter in the first place. Barbosa has been doing well on his loan and the Brazilian club are looking at the possibilites of extending it or making the deal permanent.

Reports last month suggested that there was Premier League and La Liga interest in Barbosa; which the Brazilian striker was open to. However, these tracks have since fallen quiet and it appears that Barbosa's future lies either in Brazil or with Inter Milan.

Santos would like to extend the loan deal for Barbosa by another six months; giving the club more time with the forward as they attempt to evaluate and, more importantly, negotiate a permanent deal with Inter for the forward's services.

Flamengo, another Brazilian Serie A side, are also said to be interested in signing Gabigol but the existing loan and relationship between Santos and Inter will serve the Brazilian side well in their pursuit to extend the deal.
