Inter block Cancelo return – report

Inter are refusing to terminate Joao Cancelo’s loan deal at the club despite the player’s wish to return to Valencia, according to reports in Spain.

The 23-year-old only joined the Serie A club late in the summer transfer window but a lack of first-team football means his World Cup place next summer is now at risk.

In the midst of a season-long loan deal at the Milanese giants, Plaza Deportiva report Los Che want him to return in January to make him their third reinforcement of the window.

Argentine striker Luciano Vietto has arrived from Atletico Madrid on loan while Francis Coquelin is reportedly on the verge of signing permanently from Arsenal.

The player’s agent Jorge Mendes has reportedly now become involved in discussions between the two clubs in what appears to be an attempt to hasten movement on a deal.
