Motta open to Inter return

Paris St Germain midfielder Thiago Motta has revealed he is open to an Inter Milan return.

The Italy international is under contract with the Ligue 1 champions for another season but is a reported target of several European clubs this summer.

Motta's former clubs Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan are keen to acquire the 32-year-old's services, and after three-and-a-half years in Paris, the Brazilian-born player is ready for a change.

"I get the impression that a cycle is coming to an end for me," Motta said. "I have given and received so much.

"It would be more comfortable to stay, but I wouldn't be honest with myself, nor the club, which I have grown to love. It's not a question of money, but of motivation."

Motta has made 85 appearances since joining PSG from Inter in 2012. "I have spent three-and-a-half years there, but it seems a lot more to me," he said.

"I think I have given everything by now.

"Returning to Inter would be a real challenge, as (Inter coach Roberto) Mancini has shown with his choice to join the club again at a delicate moment.

"It would be stimulating but also natural to rediscover a place where I won everything."

Motta spent three seasons at Inter and won the Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League in his first season - 2009-10 - with the Nerazzurri outfit.
