The 21 year old joined Milan from Belgian side Club Brugge last summer but has had a difficult start to life in Italy.
He has appeared thirteen times in the Serie A with just a single assist to show and most of the games being substitute appearances from the bench.
The Rossoneri paid €32m for his services and fans have been disappointed with his output thus far.
His compatriot has now offered a bit of confidence in the attacking midfielder and says the World Cup break will help him get back to his best after having met with his family during the break.
Speaking during a recent interview with Sky Sport Italia, Saelemaekers said of his teammate: “It wasn’t easy in the last few months for him, but the break got him back on track, seeing his family was important. Now I see he is looking well, he will be important for us in the second half of the season.”
The Bruges born player scored 26 times and provided 25 assists for his boyhood club in 120 games before making the move to Milan.
Inter Milan now face stiff competition from Premier League club Manchester United for French forward Marcus Thuram.
The forward has an expiring contract at the end of the season and according to Bild, Borussia Monchengladbach have decided to cash in on him in January rather than lose him for free in the summer.
Inter have been eyeing an agreement with the player for a free move to the San Siro next summer but it appears Gladbach’s willingness to make something out of the player could give United the edge.
Manchester United could become fsvourires for the player with their spending power well documented in comparison with Inter’s financial struggles.
Thuram was instrumental for France in their comeback against Argentina in the final of the World Cup before eventually losing out on penalties.
