TURIN – The match is still underway and football should only be talked about at the end but Inter fans could not resist after the goal scored by Lokomotiv Moscow at Juventus. The goal was born from a beautiful play by Joao Mario , one of the most expensive signings in the history of the Nerazzurri who turned out to be a real flop with the Inter shirt. For this reason, the Nerazzurri supporters have dedicated many teasing to the bianconeri of the type: "Ciuff ciuff (sound of the locomotive as the opponents of Juve are the Russians of Lokomotiv) but what is Joao Mario doing to you?".
In fact, during the first portion of the game, the former Inter was the best in the field, he didn't miss a ball and made himself very dangerous in the restart. Not surprisingly, the Russian goal was born from a short rejection of Szczesny on a net goal by Joao Mario. But the game is long and Juve will have the chance to overturn it in the second half.
Joao Mario was paid by Inter as much as 45 million euros (40 plus 5 bonuses).
In August 2016 it is bought by the International for 40 million euros (plus 5 bonus), which make it the second most expensive purchase in the club's history after Christian Vieri. He made his debut in Serie A on 11 September, in a 2-1 win at Pescara. It marks the first goal on October 16th, during the match against Cagliari lost by 1-2. In the second season he wears the number 10, but the new coach Spalletti rarely uses it.
After a year and a half with more negative than positive performances, during the 2018 winter market, it is loaned to West Ham, with which it ends the season totaling 13 appearances and 2 Premier League goals.
He then returned to Inter for the 2018-19 season, but was not included in the Champions list. After an initial period in which he is not taken into consideration by coach Spalletti, he finds space in the squad and at the end of the season he scores 22 appearances and 1 goal between the league and the Italian Cup. On 27 August 2019 he passes on loan with right of redemption to Lokomotiv Moscow ( source Wikipedia).
