Sevilla hopeful on Banega return

Sevilla president Jose Castro has suggested the club are working on re-signing Inter’s Ever Banega a year after the midfielder left Andalucia.

The Argentine won back-to-back Europa League titles during his two-year stint at Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan before moving to the Milanese giants on a free transfer last summer.

Despite making 28 Serie A appearances for the Nerrazzuri, the 28-year-old has failed to properly settle at the San Siro and is reportedly considering a move, while Sevilla were already in talks with the club over Stevan Jovetic.

“We made an offer to Inter for Jovetic that we thought was adequate, but the Nerazzurri didn’t accept it,” Castro told Radio Sevilla.

“I don’t know if this will mean that Jovetic won’t come back. The offer was generous, but Sevilla have their limits and we can’t pay the fees that Inter can.

“We have other options, but that doesn’t mean we can’t reach an agreement. We all have to make an effort for it to happen.

“Banega? In football, you can never say never. He’s won so much with Sevilla and he’s a fantastic player.

“We don’t know the will of his club, but he may decide to come back here, where he had his best years.

“Jovetic and Banega are different situations; we’ve worked a lot on one and the other can grow in the next few days.

“There are no talks with Inter, but our sporting director and Banega are talking.

“We can’t guarantee him the wages he gets at Inter, but who knows…”
