Zanetti: We’d welcome MB back

Balotelli departed the Nerazzurri in August 2010 and, after a

tricky start to life with Manchester City, has now become an

important first-team player for them. The 21-year-old striker has

regularly been linked with a return to Inter and Zanetti admits it

would be good to have him back. “The club is working for the

January market and I’m sure important players will arrive ,” he

told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “(Mario) Balotelli? If one day he

returned to Inter, the group would welcome him back, we did not

have any problem with Mario.” Inter have made a terrible start to

the Serie A season and Claudio Ranieri’s side currently sit 17th in

the Italian top flight. Zanetti also hinted that he would like

Carlos Tevez to join the club, with Inter short of a top-class

striker since Samuel Eto’o departed for Russia. He said: “Eto’o? He

made a painful choice, but now we have to think to score points.

“Tevez? He is having problems with his club, but we speak of a

great champion.”
