Banega ‘very close’ to Sevilla move

Ever Banega is close to returning to Sevilla, according to the Inter Milan midfielder's agent, Marcelo Simian.

Banega started 20 Serie A games for the Nerazzurri last season, scoring six goals after joining them on a free transfer from Los Rojiblancos.

The 28-year-old has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, but looks set to return to the Spanish club as he is not part of new Inter boss Luciano Spalletti's future plans.

"Banega will go to Sevilla, there's nothing with Paris Saint-Germain," Simian told Estadio Deportivo.

"The deal is not done yet, but we're very close. Everything seems to be going in the right direction."
