Motta close to PSG switch, says agent
Paris Saint Germain transfer target Thiago Motta could make his final appearance for Inter Milan on Wednesday night before swapping the San Siro for the Parc des Princes.
Motta, who is set to play in Inter's midweek Coppa Italia quarter-final at Napoli, has been strongly linked with a move to the Ligue 1 club this month and his agent has hinted a deal is close.
"Tonight's game could be Thiago's last in Inter colours,'' Motta's agent Dario Canovi told Radio CRC. "The player has indicated his availability to PSG for the transfer.
"We have not spoken yet about the financial terms with the French club because an agreement between the two clubs is missing. Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and PSG are a club who are trying to build one of the strongest teams in the world.''
Inter are reluctant to sell Motta and club president Massimo Moratti claimed earlier this week he hoped the 29-year-old would remain with the Nerazzurri, with whom he is under contract until June 2013.
The Brazil-born midfielder joined Inter in 2009 from Genoa and has scored three goals in ten league appearances this season.
