The French central-midfielder was a top talent at Monaco, but has been disappointing since joining Inter Milan in 2015. Nevertheless, there’s no shortage of speculation about his future as he’s been linked with several clubs.
According to reports, one of those clubs, Valencia, isn’t an option for Kondogbia as his agent has ruled out a move. He did say, however, that Barcelona and PSG are still asking about the player.
“Almost all of the names which have come out are true. Geoffrey is a great player and it’s normal that there are so many teams after him. Offers are never lacking, and they’re still there,” the player’s brother and agent Evans Kondogbia told Tuttomercatoweb.
“I can rule out Valencia, there’s nothing with them. I’ll repeat though, so many of the clubs who have been linked with Geoffrey are real, so even PSG and Barça have called us, but nothing more.
“It was just to talk, ‘how is the lad?’ Is he happy at Inter? Absolutely, yes. My brother is fine in Milan, he’s focused and working hard. The chances of him staying? I’d say high, but it’s not just down to us, it also depends on the will of the club.
“It works like love, like with your partner, you’ll be together if you share it. If Inter want him, we can continue without problems.”
Arsenal were interested in the midfielder when he was at Monaco, but reportedly missed out on the player when he signed for Inter Milan. Kondogbia was convinced to join the Serie A club by a conversaton with then Inter manager Roberto Mancini.
The £30m transfer free probably had something to do with Arsenal not signing him as well.
