Despite having three more years on his contract with Chelsea, defender Davide Zappacosta has not excluded the chance he could go back to Italy, especially if he doesn’t find enough space in the starting XI under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
“Could I return to Italy? Yes, Inter had been after me,” Zappacosta revealed. “My agent Alessandro Lucci had told me about their interest, although I’ve always remained focused on Chelsea”.
Now, the summer transfer window is closed, so Inter Milan or any other team could try to sign the Blues’ wing-back in January: “Could I return in January? I have three more years on my contract here and I only want to think about doing well with Chelsea”. Zappacosta went on. “There’s a lot of competition here, but I want to win a place in the team. After that, it’s clear that if I didn’t find much room, I don’t think any player would like that.”
