More worrying market rumours for Inter emerged from Spain today: Real Madrid is interested in Thiago Motta. According to the newspaper As, Jose Mourinho would have spoken with management and asked for the former Genoa midfielder as an alternative to Daniele De Rossi. True? Not according to the Italian-Brazilian player’s agent Dario Canovi, contacted exclusively by calciomercato.com: "I do not know anything about Real Madrid, nobody has contacted me. Of course in football you can never say never but this moment it is fashionable to link all Inter players to other big teams. Thiago Motta is now on vacation enjoying a deserved rest. Benitez? He is pleased with his arrival; I think they spoke on the phone yesterday".
Dario Canovi then spoke of another of his clients, Fernando Forestieri, one of the greatest talents at youth level that Italian football has to offer: "This year he played little in Malaga. He went on loan to gain experience, but was penalized by the game plan. This summer he will be back in Italy, I think that Udinese and Genoa, who share him, will renew their ownership and transfer him on loan. In Serie A or Serie B, a team that has ambitions.
