Inter teenage sensation Philippe Coutinho, who is currently on-loan at Vasco Da Gama, cannot wait until next summer when he will be eligible to play for the Nerazzurri.
Coutinho was signed from Vasco by Inter last year, but he cannot play for the Serie A champions until he turns 18. Despite the barriers, the attacking midfielder is counting the days until he will be able to wear the Beneamata jersey, and he is eyeing his new role as he reveals where he prefers to play.
"I prefer to play near the box and to exchange passes with the strikers and shoot on goal, but I can adapt.
"I have been to Milan twice and Inter treated me very well. I liked it there and I have great memories of the city."
Coutinho cannot wait to team up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, claiming he is one of the best hitmen around.
"My favourite player is Ibrahimovic. I am very motivated and I hope to contribute to Inter's future successes," concluded the youngster.
