Different Minds Regarding Thiago Motta’s Departure from Inter

Thiago MottaThiago Motta’s departure from Inter Milan apparently leaves an interesting facts which was revealed by his agent, Alessandro Canovi, stating that there’s actually some conflict of interest going on regarding the player’s future before finally moving to Paris Saint-Germain.

Canovi hinted that the Nerazzurri’s management, lead by Massimo Moratti and Marco Branca are very eager to sell the player, while coach, Claudio Ranieri actually isn’t that keen in losing Motta, who has been an important figure for Inter until this season.

Canovi further explained that Moratti and Branca’s decision to let Motta leave for Paris was because they understand that the player already lost his appetite in playing for the Nerazzurri. However, Ranieri still believes that the Italian international is still very much needed by his team especially since this season Inter’s record when playing without the ex-Barcelona man has been pretty poor.

“Massimo Moratti and Marco Branca understood the player’s state of mind, as he could no longer find the motivation to play with the Nerazzurri until June. Staying to the end of the season would’ve been a difficult situation. Claudio Ranieri wanted him to stay, because there are few players like Thiago Motta and it’s only normal a Coach would not be eager to let him go,” Canovi stated.

Many expert believes that losing Motta is a big loss for Inter, especially now their starting to lose another grip in the league, although the investment being made looks pretty promising indeed. After the
ex-Barcelona player’s departure, the Nerazzurri picked up two interesting players, Angelo Palombo from Sampdoria along with Porto’s Freddy Guarin, who have been catching many eyes of talent scouts from big teams.

However, despite already acquiring Palombo and Guarin, there’s still some doubts about Inter’s ability in coping with Motta’s departure since the latter does have different characteristic compared with the previous two names. Obviously the proves on whether the Nerazzurri can really cope well with the departure of an important act in midfield especially since Wesley Sneijder hasn’t been himself this season.
