Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic expressed his delight at returning to training with Inter despite intimating earlier in the summer that he was looking for a fresh challenge.

Ibrahimovic has been linked with a move away from the Italian champions, but Inter’s price tag of around €70 million means no offers have so far been forthcoming.

“What happens, happens. Now I am happy to be here, I am happy like the first day I came to Inter,” he told Inter TV.

Coach Jose Mourinho, holding a news conference on the first day of pre-season training, was not surprised to see the Swede.

“I never thought he could leave,” said Mourinho, who was more annoyed that the club had failed to offload a number of players he wanted to leave.

“It is not positive to have 28 players. It is not a criticism of my club but of eight players we wanted to cut only four have left, three at the end of contracts and one on loan,” he said.

“This means Inter have made no euros and when the club doesn’t make money the coach has to be pragmatic. I’ll work more but I can’t produce miracles. I’m not Harry Potter.”

Inter have bought Genoa duo Diego Milito and Thiago Motta with Twente Enschede striker Marko Arnautovic set to follow.
