Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi admits he is flattered by the reported interest from Inter Milan.
The 25-year-old was one of the hottest commodities on the transfer market in the summer of 2011, but numerous injury problems have seen his career start taking the wrong turn.
Despite undergoing a third surgery on the injured knee, the player believes he still has a future at the biggest stage.
“My goal is to return to the pitch as soon as possible. In Spain, Italy or elsewhere,” Rossi told RAI Gr Parlamento.
Rossi than admitted that he would love to continue his career at Giuseppe Meazza amidst rumours linking him with the Italian giants.
“The Neroazzurri? Who would not like…It’s a team that I like, a project that grows.”
It is no secret Inter Milan are interested in the former Italy international, but they are unlikely to make a move until the player fully recovers from a knee injury.
It appears Villarreal have missed the opportunity to properly cash in on their prized asset, considering the player’s value has decreased a great deal over the last year.
Even so, provided he can return to full fitness, Rossi should have no problems finding a new club, taking into account that he has scored 54 goals in 138 La Liga appearances for the Yellow Submarine.
