The Brazilian has been in China for the last two years after joining Jiangsu Suning from Chelsea, but says he is keen to move to Italy this month.
Speaking to Sky Italy, he said: “If I had to go back to Europe and do it in a big club like Inter, it would be a happy moment for me and my family, and if it happens I will be ready.
“The question of the hiring not only depends on me, there are different parties involved – the negotiations must satisfy both clubs. I hope we can reach an agreement and go to Inter. I must continue doing well here to hope to return to Europe.”
