Spanish midfielder Borja Valero had already played in Fiorentina in the past, while Qatar seemed like a good economic option only.

Spanish midfielder Borja Valero joined Internazionale Milan in 2017.

But the 34-year-old was wanted by Fiorentina, whom he played with from 2012 to 2017, and he was tempted to a move to the Qatar football league too.

And the former Villarreal man decided to stay put in the Italian Lega Serie A.

“Borja wants to play for Inter,” his agent Alejandro Camano told Football Italia.

“He left his home, Fiorentina, where they gave him all the love in the world and can never forget the way those people made him feel.”

“He did it so he could play at Inter, where he is happy. He believes Inter can win everything this season and he wants to help the team achieve that,” he added.

“He’ll remain to the end of his contract, then only God knows what lies in our future. Borja wants to convince Conte and to do that, he rejected both Qatar and a return to the Viola.”

“I am only saying this because people need to know the truth: he is a good and honest person.”
