Lavezzi was close to joining Inter, says agent

The Argentina international was close to signing for the Nerazzurri in the summer of 2012 before he eventually made the move from Napoli to Paris Saint-Germain instead
Ezequiel Lavezzi's agent, Alejandro Mazzoni, has revealed that the Paris Saint-Germain attacker was close to joining Inter in the past and has hinted that the Argentine would be open to a return to Serie A this summer.

The 27-year-old was heavily linked with a move to the Giuseppe Meazza side ahead of the 2012-13 campaign but eventually opted to leave Napoli for the French capital instead.

Nevertheless, his agent has stated that Lavezzi still has warm feelings for Serie A and would be interested in a move to Inter.

"Pocho [Lavezzi] was close to joining Inter in the past. They showed an interest in signing him a number of times," Mazzoni told the Corriere dello Sport.

"He never said that he's an AC Milan fan and would never join Inter. He could go to Inter, a team who already have a lot of Argentines.

"He likes the city of Milan because of the high-quality football and it's a place where someone can live in peace.

"Any player who has played in Serie A is interested in a return there. Football in Italy is nothing like in France. PSG are a very important team, though, who will do well next season."

Lavezzi has a contract with the Ligue 1 leaders until June 2016.
