The 21-year-old moved to the San Siro at the start of 2012 following six years at his boyhood club.
Juan has settled into Italian life well and is enjoying his football on the peninsula, but revealed he hopes to return to Brazil one day to help Internacional win titles.
He said: "I want to have a career of 10 or 12 years here in Italy. I'm happy here.
"But I want to retire at Internacional. However, I do not want the old back, I want to return and help win titles."
The Seleção international believes Internacional can claim one of the Brasileirão’s four Copa Libertadores qualification places, despite being seven points from fourth-placed São Paulo, having played a game more.
Juan added: "I'm always following Inter as they have a place in my heart.
"I see the games on the internet, or follow the results. I also follow Moledo, who is a great friend, Nei, and Kleber.
"The Libertadores is close now and is still quite possible."
Internacional have dropped points recently having lost their last two games to relegation candidates Atlético Goianiense, who are bottom of the league, and 18th-placed Figueirense.
Inter now have just seven games left to play in the Brasileirão and next up is a visit to fifth-placed Vasco da Gama in six days' time.
