Internacional forward Ignacio Scocco would prefer Newell's Old Boys return
Internacional forward Ignacio Scocco has admitted he would prefer a return to Newell's Old Boys, should he leave the Porto Alegre-based club this month.
Scocco was on loan at Newell’s before joining Inter from Al Ain for €4.25 million in July.
The Argentina international, capped once, has struggled to settle in Brazil. He scored just three goals in 17 appearances, as Internacional finished 15th in the Brasileirão.
With the club looking to rebuild after a disappointing campaign, Scocco is believed to be one of the players that could potentially be sacrificed.
The 28 year-old has been linked with a move to Sunderland, but insists his priority would be a switch back to Newell’s.
"In Argentina, the team that always has the priority is Newell's, but I know that it's very difficult because of economic reasons and it doesn't depend on me, it depends a lot on Internacional and any team that can pay what the Brazilians expect," he said, as reported by Sky Sports.
"For a reason of being thankful, respect and feelings, Newell's is always going to be first, but I don't close the door to anybody."
