Winger on why he snubbed Liverpool offer.
Inter Milan’s new signing Xherdan Shaqiri has revealed his reasons for turning down a Liverpool transfer this January, according to CaughtOffside.
The Swiss international was long linked as a top target for the Reds, and has revealed he nearly moved to Anfield in the summer, but that he had a gut feeling about a move to Inter this season.
“My gut feeling was with Inter,” he said.
“I had wanted to join Liverpool over the summer, but Bayern would not agree to it.
“That was not easy for me, but I had to accept it. That’s why I am glad that it has worked out with this move in the winter.”
Although Shaqiri is only on loan at the San Siro, this move is expected to be made permanent next season.
