Reported Inter Milan target Carlinhos only interested in signing new Fluminense deal
Fluminense full-back Carlinhos has play down claims that he is set for a move to Europe by insisting that first of all he would like to sign a new contract extension with his current club.
Reports have emerged linking the 27-year-old with a move to Italian giants Internazionale, however he rejected talk of a move away from Brazil when speaking to reporters.
Football Italia quoted the Flu defender who reaffirmed his happiness, adding: “To be sought after by a great European club shows that I have worked in the right way.
“I have previously had the opportunity to move to Europe, but I preferred to stay at Fluminense, where I am happy and where we are talking to extend my contract.”
Carlinhos did briefly discuss what might happen should his contract not get extended and admitted he needs to say little about Inter Milan because everybody knows their pedigree in football.
The Brazilian concluded: “In the event that this is not an option, I am sure that the parties would analyse the possibilities for all. I do not need to say anything about Inter because everyone knows their value in world football.”
