The agent of Thomas Partey, Daniel Jimenez has insisted the Atletico Madrid midfield kingpin is ‘better than Paul Pogba’ and could join Inter with his €50m release clause.
The Ghanaian international has been sensational for the Los Rojiblancos in the 2018/19 season.
As per reports, Manchester United are eager to sign the 25-year-old as a replacement for Ander Herrera who has left the club.
However, the Nerazzurri and Manchester City are also interested in the Ghanaian international.
“He is like Pogba, he’s a box to box player, but he is better than the Frenchman,” his representative Jose Daniel Jimenez Pozanco told FcInterNews, as cited by our sister site Football Italia.
“That is because he does more defensive work. I feel that because he is African, he gets much less media coverage than the Manchester United player.
“I first watched him play in Ghana, I immediately recognized his qualities and thought that if he could improve on a tactical level, he would be one of the best in the world.
“I told him he must listen, learn and remain humble. A person should always remember where they came from and he has got where he has through hard work. Nobody handed him anything.
“There is no reason why he won’t move to Italy. Inter, like Atleti, are a top team.
“He has a €50m release clause and in football anything is possible, just look at Diego Godin leaving to join Inter and Antoine Griezmann possibly on his way to Barcelona.”
Partey started just 22 La Liga matches from a possible 38 this season despite steering clear of injuries and suspensions.
