Contact for the 23 year-old Slovenian who is asking Palermo for a raise.
The Brazilian's agent: "Mou will soon make an offer to Inter."

Milan - So after the mini treble is stored in storage, Inter will now focus on the transfer market. The season finale has suggested that there will not be revolutions but there are going to be some tweaking here and there. Especially going younger with those who are ready for our league. A picture that fits Josip Ilicic, 23 year-old attacking midfielder of Palermo, perfectly. And the Italian Cup final was the opportunity to contact the Slovenian boy.

Does not exclude Sanchez Ilicic is really loved by Massimo Moratti, and at Palermo, he is only making 250 thousand euros per season. Arriving with his compatriot Bacinovic last summer, he is linked with the club of Zamparini, who paid 2.2 million to Maribor, until 2015. After a super year, his agent wants a touch up to 700 thousand euros and is prepared to talk extension until 2016. Both parties are still a long way apart and here, Inter could step in and be a part of this negotiation. But Moratti and Branca do not want to force anyone's hand as they will remain but they will leave Palermo to take first position. In case of failure, the club of Nerazzurri is ready to tighten. They are well aware the price tag of the boy who scored 8 goals in 45 appearances in his first season in Italy, Zamparini is unlikely to settle for less than 10-12 million. The arrival of Ilicic, among other things, should not exclude that of Sanchez. Leo could bring two talented players born in '88 to play in a 4-2-3-1. And with the arrival of Dutch striker Castaignos ('92), selling at least 2 strikers in current team is likely.

Maicon-Real The other key movement for Inter is Sisenando Maicon, although none of the parties are pushing for a farewell. The 29 year-old Brazilian is happy at Inter and Inter do not want to discard one of the best fullbacks in the world. But after the rejecting Real 12 months ago, things may change in the strategies of the Nerazzurri. In an interview with Radio Radio yesterday, Roberto Calenda revealed that: "After that last summer when president Moratti put his feet down to keep Maicon, perhaps not to give one of his best players to Mourinho who had just gone to Madrid, we still need to see what Inter will do now because Maicon remains an objective of Mou and Real are considering a new offer." Then Perez offered 22-25 million but Inter were asking for 30-35 and nothing came out of it. Now that offer, even lower, could suffice.

If two big players leave, then the focus will be at Fabregas. For Banega, it can be done.
Real on Maicon, Zenit for Thiago Motta. And today meeting with Cesena for the purchase of Nagatomo.

Milan - Sell or not to sell: this is the priority of the transfer market for Inter, which is also in chronological sense. Of course not forgetting the essential operations such as the purchase of Yuto Nagatomo (4 million) and for that, there will be a meeting today with Cesena. So selling is, therefore, to capitalize on (at least) a couple of important sales before making further investments. First of, a midfielder of great quality and that is even an offensive player like Sanchez or Pinilla.

The dream and the possibility

Impossible dreams? The dreams are well known: Bastian Schweinsteiger, at this time, he is considered to be far away from Inter and Cesc Fabregas, for whom, Inter would have to enter into competition with Barcelona. Other two jewels are unattainable are Luka Modric and Brazilian Sandro both have been locked up by Tottenham (just like Bale) or even Daniele De Rossi. Those are all midfielders that would be ideal for the needs of technical and tactical importance. And there is also Lassana Diarra, who could be a key piece that Real Madrid may enter into negotiations for Maicon. At the moment, the player seems the most accessible si Ever Banega, the Argentinian at Valencia: the eventual attack of another big player in the midfield will start only when Inter have made some sales.

The difficulties Certainties at this moment seem to be two: none of the players are non-transferable and with relevant offers, almost everyone can be sold even Eto'o. But the recent statements of Moratti and the Cameroonian have made this hypothesis to the extreme. There are difficulties that Inter will have to face: contracts with high wages (in fact, new policy is in place to lower premiums with incentives that come with it), unwillingness to leave Inter, and age.

The key players could be used to raise cash.

Mariga Who could be sacrificed? Beyond Mariga who has a long list of suitors (Udinese, Napoli, Sunderland, West Bromwich, Bolton and Fulham), perhaps the most sought after Inter player is Wesley Sneijder especially by Manchester United who need great quality in the midfield. And there is Maicon with Real Madrid and Manchester City (not happy with Richards and selling Boateng to Bayern) on his track. For Pandev, Galatasary have been active as well as Wolfsburg. But yesterday, the Macedonian's agent, Carlo Pallavicino told Radio Mana Mana that: "The future of Pandev is at Inter. I have absolutely no offer for him." As for Milito, other than a little survey done by Rubin Kazan, there are no other baits.

Fantasy football Julio Cesar Things are a little bit different for Thiago Motta: the interest of Zenit of St. Petersburg is real as because Luciano Spalletti really likes the Italian-Brazilian international but the offer of 15 million suggested by the Russian tabloid has yet to arrive at Inter. Lastly there is Julio Cesar. He will not be sold to Roma as rumors suggested. This hypothesis was disproved by Inter and even Roberto Calenda, Maicon's agent and a friend of the goalkeeper: "It's fantasy football. Julio Cesar is well at Inter and will respect his contract." And speaking of goalkeepers, Inter are working to renew Paolo Orlandoni for another year.

Pozzo (Udinese president) arrived at Hilton Hotel in Milano.

The bomber launches an idea to the directors for the Ghanaian of Pozzo.
Nagatomo: within days, he will be all Inter's.

Milan This is beautiful as well as curious. The behind the scene, or indiscretion could lead to the begining of a new chapter. During the greeting after winning the Italian Cup, the Lion King - or Samuel Eto'o - made a request to the managment of Inter: "Why not taking Asamoah of Udinese?" A joke perhaps. Or maybe not at all. Because if on one hand, it is very difficult for Udinese to sell both him and Inler but it is also true that the name of Asamoah is not only warm but very hot on the transfer market. So, who knows...

Him and others The Bianconeri midfielder is correspond to what Inter are looking for in terms of quality and age: Mariga leaving is very likely, Obi is going out on loan (Cesena like him in negotiation with Nagatomo) and Muntari is not coming back are the three factors that could lead the club of Massimo Moratti in the direction of Kwadwo Asamoah, and we also say that it is very possible that Inter will get two new players for the midfield. Inter will remain walking the trails that lead to Poli (Sampdoria), Parolo (Cesena), Banega (Valencia), and the biggest dream is still Cesc Fabregas, but it is clear that if Inter make an investment on the Ghanaian then Eto'o would appreciate greatly. The cost? High, at least 15 million euros and there is also Milan on his track.

Derby So starting here, another derby would be blooming, another battle of which Udinese are going to have battle the two giants to keep their midfielders such as Inler and Asamoah. The Ghanaian has often been followed a long time by Allegri but the advice coming from Eto'o could convince the management of Inter to redirect their attentions on this midfielder.

Yuto: figure and youngsters Here is the Nagatomo chapter. The meeting between Cesena and Inter was postponed to early next week, the president Campedelli's agenda is the three meetings with Genoa, Parma and Inter. Purchasing (fully) the Japanese is obvious: the total value of the player is 7 million and Inter could enter into negotiations Obi and Caldirola. A collaboration could be developed for the dream of Yuto.

Moratti said Chivu will renew and stay at Inter.

Juve are in the front row. But Moratti is in the balance.
Other than the cash, Udinese are asking Marotta for De Ceglie, the alternative for Inter is Santon.
And the president on the Chilean: "Coming at 60%."

Milan - Juve have upped the ante but Inter aren't offside and those are the words of Massimo Moratti. The auction for Alexis Sanchez is live as the cost of the Chilean has now reached 30 million euros in both cash and players in exchange. And do not forget that Barcelona and Manchester City are always on the attack.

Him or Rossi Gino Pozzo is at home in Catalunya and contacting Barca almost on a daily basis. The latest coming from Camp Nou is that Sandro Rosell is leaning towards Sanchez as he is the alternative for Giuseppe Rossi whose cost has been raised by Villarreal. Now Gino Pozzo will reveal the offers from Juve and Inter in the upcoming days.


Juve offer The Bianconeri are starting on a foundation of 20 milion and are prepared to enter players in exchange such as Ekdal and Giandonato, but that's not all. The Friulani, however, are pushing for Paolo De Ceglie, but Conte has made it clear that he is untouchable.

Inter move Instead, Marco Branca, thus far, has stopped at 15 million but that number could go as high as 18 million. In addition, there is Mariga and also Santon is in contention as well as Guidolin really likes him. Not only that, there is also a future investment of Ramirez from Bologna (to be divided in half).

Moratti positive Massimo Moratti, yesterday, had this to say to Inter Channel regarding the transfer market for Inter: "It's hard to give a precise reply at a moment in which we are trying to figure out if the clubs will sell, how they will sell, the prices, earnings and whether certain exchanges will be able to be made. However, let's say that the player with whom we are speaking, and I don't know the odds of our success, is certainly Sanchez, because we've been speaking about it for a long time. Also because he's a player with many qualities and because we've opened a certain kind of discussion with Udinese. Let's say 60% - not that he's definitely coming - but compared to others there is a chance."[COLOR="Silver"]




The Bianconeri have stopped for the Brazilian of Lyon.
So the Nerazzurri are ready to come in and offer Pandev in exchange.

In about twenty days, Michel Bastos should become a EU player and ready to land in Italy for roughly 15 million. This important news has revolutionized the marketing strategies for the Brazilian winger. Suddenly, in fact, Inter have entered the scene. Last week, Marco Branca made a contact with the manager of the talented Lyon player. "If he becomes a EU player then we are interested. So here I am. Bastos can play as a left-back even though last season, he played mostly very high up front.

Juve stopping The intervention of Inter is coincided with the slowing down of Juve who have had, for a while, a verbal agreement with the player. Conte prefers a more offensive oriented player for his left wing. Ribery, so to speak. And Marotta has taken notes of these new tactics by asking Bastos to be patient. But patience does not last long in football. The telephone of Branca arrived at the right time.

Two weeks Inter have a good relationship with Lyon and they would enter Pandev into negotiations whom president Aulas really likes. If negotiations can take off with this possible exchange then Branca would make adjustments with the strategies of Moratti. Meanwhile, Bastos has given Juve two weeks time to decide. The time needed for him to obtain a French passport. But the change of direction of Juve has surprised and even annoyed Bastos. Michel Bastos gave full support in moving to Turin even if it means staying out of Cup competitions. The intervention of Inter should make him smiling again.

Sky reports that there will be another meeting for Nagatomo next week and Faraoni could be included in the deal.

FIN reports that Inter and Genoa will continue their good relationship with some potential moves this summer.

The most important one being Criscito (liked by Leo) given to first choice to Inter. If Real do approach for Maicon, Criscito will be first choice to replace him. Inter might go for Palacio to complete Inters attack. Not to start, but I guess if Pandev is off they will replace him with Palacio as the bench player. On top of that Mariga might be given first choice to Genoa also. We might send some youngsters there also, most importantly being Natalino.

Transfer market: president Moratti is very tempted.
A telephone call between Mourinho and Leonardo to talk about this sensational exchange.



Telephone call between Mou and Leo: "Kaka to Inter for Maicon to Real."
Two days ago there was contact, negotiations could take off.
After the coach, here is another former Milanista: Moratti is tempted.

Milan Dozens and dozens of phone calls. These calls have been going on since the end of December 2010 between Leonardo and Mourinho so it is not far-fetched to say that they often hear from each other. But two days ago, there was a totally different kind of call. And probably the most important than others: there was a requested made. The main two characters are Maicon and Kaka. Mou and Leo have talked about, coming to assume an exchange, a hypothesis that could please everyone such as the coaching staff as well as the clubs. Because if on the Spanish side, there is the need for a big time right-back, at Inter, the idea of Chelsea going after Sneijder has grown more and more day by day thus creating an abyss of light at Inter. For this, the chat between Mourinho and Leo became a detonator, to the point of taking shape in the minds of decision makers: Perez and Moratti.

How it started Who thinks of a Florentino Perez ready to open a suitcase of money for someone special should change your mind. Because of all the history that comes with Jose Mourinho when the Portuguese asked for reinforcement for his defense, or specifically Fabio Coentrao, born in '88 of Benfica and the Portuguese international. Benfica, however, have asked for 35 million and so Perez is not too enthusiastic. And at that point, bouncing in Mourinho's head is an idea that almost took place a year ago but this idea is just as strong as it was then: Sisenando Maicon. For Leo, Maicon is a great player which had a roller-coaster year and that is the reason why this idea has taken place. To make an exchange, Inter should have a balance economically and it is Ricardo Kaka in exchange. And it is Kaka that Mourinho could sacrifice in order to have a shot at Aguero.


How it developed Leo and Mourinho have put us in a few moments to intrude the idea beyond simply pour-parler: and at that point the coach of Inter has highlighted what could happen to Sneijder because there is real interest coming from England especially with Hiddink pushing to take him to London.

How it will be implemented Bringing Kaka to Inter will not be easy for a variety of reasons. First: Kaka is a former Milanista who always feels the Rossoneri but to what extend this is to be established and tested. Second: Perez considers Kaka to be an important peace for his Real Madrid and not just because he was Perez's first purchase. Third: Kaka has repeatedly said that he doesn't want to leave Real Madrid because he wants to demonstrate that he is a real champion and at a team where he will make 10 million per season, a figure, that Inter will struggle to endorse to meet commitments for financial fair play. These are the "against" the hypothesis of the exchange between Maicon and Kaka but is the "pro" exist?

Yes: they are Moratti, Leonardo and... Mourinho For Mourinho, Kaka was almost never used while Moratti would welcome this move with open arms and challenge Milan after Leonardo. And there is Leonardo himself who embraces the champion for whom Leo is looking forward to revive his career and re-discover his best. "Kaka at Inter? Knowing him, I think he will never leave Real Madrid without doing good things there." But does Mou think so?

Balance Kaka, two summers ago, was 67 million. Maicon is no less than 30. So Inter must find a balance to enter the discourse of other players. Technical director Marco Branca and sporting director Piero Ausilio are at work on the transfer market and this week, there could be a lot more evidence on the many fronts of this intriguing story of Milan-Madrid-London.[COLOR="Silver"]




The scenarios: if the exchange goes ahead...
Here is what Inter could follow.

Milan - Inter have everything ready with Udinese for Alexis Sanchez. But not in a hurry. The reason? On the horizon there is a plan B and it is clearly linked to the talks initiated by Maicon and Kaka. And this also explains the optimism of Enrico Preziosi that has been repeating for quite some time now that "Inter, at the moment, are the club with the most interest for Criscito." From Genoa, the deal is more than likely will be completed but Inter will only speed up negotiation only if the offer (right one) of Real Madrid for Maicon materialize.

Only Criscito? At that point, the club of Moratti would move immediately in the direction of Genoa where their request must be fulfilled (15 million, a figure thought to be high), but this purchase will give Leonardo four players (Criscito, Chivu, Zanetti and Nagatomo) to count on. Those guys will be able to cover both wings with strength and versatility.

Plan B After the chapter of Criscito, there is the Argentinean Palacio according to plan B described three days ago, if Sanchez didn't arrive but Kaka did, Inter would back on the track last summer with Palacio as he can contribute multiple different ways. Who would he replace? Watch out for requests that coming for Pandev from Turkey and Germany. The new rumor concerns Stefano Mauri. Today, his agent will meet with president Lotito and after the interest of Zenit and Juventus, there is also Inter but for now it doesn't appear to have made an official request. The value of Mauri (31 years old, with contract expiring in 2013) is close to 5 million euros. Inter would certainly take a shot.

Meeting for Viviano And what about Viviano? The percentages of permanently staying at Bologna are improbable and this week, the Rossoblu and Inter will meet for further discussions on multiple situations: renewal of co-ownership, total purchase or acquisition of half of the player with another club... The rumors suggest that the two clubs will soon find an agreement to satisfy each protagonist of the story.

07 Jun 11, 05:10


The idea between Mou and Leonardo is now being evaluated by both clubs.
Inter have a problem: the salary of Ricardo, if Real can help out...

Milan - Reflection after the storm. The possible exchange between Kaka and Maicon is a difficult one and Real and Inter are working hard at it but it is certainly not impossible. Mourinho wants Maicon since last year and Leonardo, in the event of losing Sneijder, will willingly embrace the talent that he brought to Milan. The phone call between the two coaches has created a rumor, but not an empty one. "All nonsense," said Massimo Moratti concisely worded in a rush like before. But the thoughts are there. From both sides.

Study Not by chance that yesterday the agent of Maicon said the same words like Moratti did: "Not true, all nonsense." But Mourinho insists on Maicon and Kaka on the bench is just a loss for Real Madrid. "The Blancos are studying a new offer for Maicon," said Roberto Calenda. And it goes from there. In fact, Mou and Leo on the phone have just started this premise.

Decisions in line And here is the point. To probe the feasibility, it requires in return financial terms which, at the moment, do not meet that at Inter. And the explanation is simple. The Nerazzurri will be more strict because of the financial fair play. And this seems to go back one year. Even then, Real proposed an offer of around 20 million compared to a request of 30 plus. It is also no coincidence that yesterday the same Calenda made a significant distinction: "The interest of Real Madrid can only give pleasure to the player, but he intends to honor the best of his contract with Inter. Then all the decisions about his future will fall in line with the policy of Inter." Meanwhile, Enrico Preziosi said: "For Criscito, Inter are the favorite, but then it will depend on the sales..."

Contacts Those 10 million of salary for the Real Madrid's Brazilian is not consistent with the policy of thinning the mountain of salaries at Inter. So to continue the dialogue, Real need to facilitate the release of Kaka, perhaps with a monetary contribution. The opinion of Mou will be decisive. For Real, it is a great loss to see Ricardo saddened on the bench and the stands. And the club of Massimo Moratti knows that in this case it is important to keep your guard. Over the next few days there will be further contacts between the two parties. For now indirectly. An official meeting is pending.




Already this week, the redeem could take place.
Today, he is the starter for the Azzurri.

Liege - Viviano is closer to Inter. There are the evils of football, transfer market and the national team but for Viviano he is not afraid of anything: "I'm not afraid of anything, whatever happens will be fine for me."

Two cases Thousand and thousand of voices started last week about the uproar of illegal betting and at one point, his Bologna was brought up, but Viviano rebelled like this: "I feel clean so I can go head-on in everything I do." That said, he has to regard that there is a transfer market situation for his immediate future. But when Viviano jokes about it ("So where will you send me today? Inter, Roma, Genoa?"), it suggests that he will choose a fate according to his liking, and not to accommodate the interlocking negotiations. Inter are expected to reach an agreement with Bologna to resolved the ownership question perhaps already this week. So there are two cases. One: in case of a bargain for Julio Cesar (but he continues to reiterate the wish to remain at Inter until the end of the contract), the Italian keeper should be ready to cover the goal. Otherwise, there are teams like Roma, Genoa and perhaps even Udinese (for Sanchez).




Yesterday, there was a meeting between Inter and Cesena for Nagatomo. Details were defined and within 10 days, the definite transfer of Yuto to Inter will take place. Inter will pay 6.5 million euros to the Romagnoli, a figure will decrease by entering one or two players and the candidates are Livaja and Biraghi. Since yesterday, as anticipated, Rodrigo Alborno is in Milan as well as Castaignos.

Pozzo has flown to Barcelona to discuss about Sanchez.

Inter, for Sneijder, Chelsea are ready to offer 35 million.
The Dutch's agent will meet with technical director Branca.
New track for Palacio: Pandev to Genoa.

Milan - The operation for Wes is about to take off. In a few days, some even say in hours, from London there will be an offer for Sneijder. The British tabloids report that with the hiring of Guus Hiddink at Chelsea, consequently, there will be an assault on the trequartista of Inter: Wesley Sneijder. A Dutchman is asking for another Dutchman, in short. The Blues of London really want the genius of Utrecht after two years of adventure at Inter.

A tummy ache? Another aspect of the story is also confirmed. Soren Lerby, the player's agent, and Inter technical director Marco Branca will meet today or tomorrow to see what direction to give to each other: for such a long time, there have always been rumors of a departure from Inter and Sneijder has serious followers in England such as Manchester United, Manchester City but especially Chelsea, a team that wants him to win in the Champions League. The meeting in a few hours between Lerby and Branca will shed light on every aspect of this affair and above all the willingness, or otherwise, of Wesley Sneijder to remain at Inter.

35 to 40 million In this meeting, Inter will emphasize a dual concept: the first is the importance of Wes at Inter and the second is the ability to get him with a figure somewhere between 35 and 40 million euros. Inter know that Sneijder is a winner and that his contract (extended a few months ago) expires in June of 2015 so it must know which and how concrete are the sirens from England which have been trying for Wes in a long time.

London Sneijder is enjoying the holidays with his wife Yolanthe in the United States and it is clear that his preferred, if he is sold, destination will be more London then Manchester United because Hiddink has the power to do so. Do not exclude the possibility that Guus is not coming to Chelsea (which in England it's unlikely) because Guus has indicated the name of Wes. The London club is ready to offer 30 million pounds, about 35 million euros. The price is almost right.

Palacio reappears Let's revisit a track between Inter and Genoa a few days ago: the possibility of an exchange between Goran Pandev and Rodrigo Palacio is strong. Palacio, an Argentina winger, was liked a summer ago.

Criscito's agent says his client deserves a big team but there haven't been official contacts.

09 Jun 11, 06:09


The former Milan player speaks in Brazil and takes time to make the contacts for his passage to Inter.

Sao Paulo - Kaka has put on the brakes and Maicon smiles. The sensational idea of the market between Leonardo and Mourinho has bounced to the streets of Sao Paulo and the two champions of Brazil are just a few kilometers away from each other. Ricky is spending his first few days of vacation at his villa in a noble neighborhood of the city, while Maicon is spending his time in the area near the Pacaenbu stadium after the farewell football match of the phenomenon Ronaldo.

Contacts with Leo Neighbors, but without having the opportunity to speak. Real Madrid and Inter are, however, working at this exchange. Kaka has cooled the enthusiasm of the Nerazzurri fans. In an exclusive interview with the daily newspaper "Jornal de Tarde", the champion said: "I'm at Inter? I often speak with Leonardo. He is my friend. A true friend. But Leo knows that my desire is to stay at Real Madrid next year." The message is clear, but it must be understood. The translation of Ricky's thought is this: I don't run away from reality and I will not ask to be transferred but I want to play. And what if Mourinho thinks differently? If the Special One wants to push him out of Real and special back to Italy and perhaps to Inter? More than a hypothesis, in fact, the dialogue at the highest levels just started to align the interests of the two clubs. The Special One has always had a weak spot for Maicon while he could use the bench to force the former Golden Ball winner out.

Decisive season The upcoming year will be an important one for Kaka. The injuries will be behind him and the player wants to have a season as a protagonist. Also because his major objective is to participate in the World Cup 2014 as Ricky dreams of lifting the trophy at the new Maracana. But he needs the full confidence of the coach to recover that he has left for Real Madrid as well as the Selecao. And so far with Mourinho, not a lot of things have gone smoothly. And it is likely that there will be a clarification between the player and the coach. Meanwhile, Leonardo will not stop calling.

A smile as interpretation So what will Maicon do? The Inter defender was not surprised when we asked him about the possible exchange with Kaka. He ran at first but he stopped. He looked at us as of he would like to say something. Then, merely a smile for him, highly unusual. A smile that sounds like a "green light" to the operation. And nothing wrong with that. For two years, Maicon has been wanting to go to Madrid. To go back to work with the Special One and to find new stimuli after winning everything with Inter. The game, in short, it's all to play. And it will also continue far from Italy in Sao Paulo.

Prospects On the horizon there are two scenarios. The two clubs, in a short time frame, will continue discussing economic terms of this exchange or the conversation could continue on one track and that is bringing Maicon directly to Madrid (with Kaka staying). The main problem, once again, is his salary which is at 10 million euros. Not low.




Postponement for Viviano.
Lerby coming for Sneijder.

Milan - Meeting and postponement: Inter and Bologna will be back to talk bout Emiliano Viviano after June 20. They did meet yesterday but did not (yet) agree on the figure: Bologna for the other half of Viviano are asking about 7 and a half million while Inter do not want to go over 5. The discussion will be re-examined in the near future.

Lerby For Wesley Sneijder, there is no news until next week when there will be a meeting which is already set with Soren Lerby, the Dutch's agent. At the moment, Inter have not officially received any bid for their player, but seeing new development especially from Chelsea (compatriot Hiddink, the next coach of the Blues, is a big fan of Wes), it is possible that the same Lerby will be the one to bring the proposal to Inter which, if any, will be evaluated carefully.

Pozzo, Sanchez and impetuousness Inter, during this period, will continue thinking about Sanchez of Udinese. The Nerazzurri, already and even before many clubs that have entered the race, have presented its offer: money (15 million), Mariga, Santon and perhaps even Ramirez and Alibec. Now it is a waiting game to see how real and concrete the interest coming from Barcelona and Juventus while for Udinese, they will have their own game to play. Yesterday, speaking to Sky, Giampaolo Pozzo said: "So far, no club has shown great impetuousness that you need to take a sample." As in: who wants to get in (Udinese try to trigger an auction).

Pepito out of reach Of course, in this case, Udinese would also accept a compensation technique and Inter remain a stronger possibility for Sanchez than Giuseppe Rossi: for the striker, Villarreal are asking no less than 30 million (4 million per season) so certainly that price is out of reach. Unless Moratti decides to go crazy.

Alborno, everything is OK Closed yesterday the "practical" details for Rodrigo Alborno: agreement was defined with both the youngster and with Libertad. The deal will be made official on August 12 when the midfielder turns 18 years old.

Pandev's agent: "He wants to be availed but with the Inter shirt."

Mou insists and asks Inter for the defender.
Now the former Milan player can arrive on loan with a salary divided in half.



Mourinho continues pressing for Maicon and Ricky is in the plan.
The Special One has an idea that appeals to Inter: here is how he can bring the right-back to Real Madrid.

Milan - One more step forward. The chat between Mourinho and Leonardo did not stop at a simple exchange: after the phone call a week ago, the coach of Real Madrid and that of Inter have had multiple new contacts. Mou is pressing for Maicon and Inter are trying to entice other streets, one of them leads to the loan of Ricardo Kaka.

Pressing The request of Real Madrid was practically official on Wednesday: "we want Maicon," said the men of Florentino Perez and they want Maicon because Jose Mourinho is convinced that after a year, this deal can be done. A summer ago, due to a big difference economically, the deal did not take place. The supply from Madrid was just too low (18-20) for what was required of them (over 30) million for Maicon. So the whole thing became insurmountable obstacle. And the question is would it still be the case?

Preferential No, not today, because Maicon's value is (slightly) lower and because the will of Mourinho seems to have become a fixation. What Real are not going to do is spending 30 million for Maicon, although it is clear that Inter have no intention of asking that much for him. The Nerazzurri (which Sneijder as the starting number 10) are simply taking note of an "obsession" of Real that Mourinho started and to which Real are trying to make a credible approach.

Loan? This is where Real and Inter have come to a conclusion: the loan of Kaka. A hypothesis that could be technically possible, but it is going against the famous Beckham law. Real, who are paying the Brazilian 10 million, in the event of his return after a year of loan could face an increased taxation. For the Inter side, however, the idea could be very attractive, specially with the salary of Kaka could then be divided equally between the two clubs. So, watch out for developments in the upcoming days. Real and Inter are constantly in contact and, in addition to the idea of the loan, could revive the idea of an exchange but with a little help from Real in terms of the salary. In short, for Maicon, important steps have been taken forward; for Kaka, the situation needs to be studied a bit. And we are just at the first few episodes.

Sneijder: "There is a family like atmosphere at Inter. I don't want to leave."

The hands of Real are also on the Argentinian who said: "It's time to leave Palermo."
With him to Madrid, the exchange of Maicon and Kaka with Inter is easier.
But Moratti also likes Il Flaco.



Real are intrigued with the Argentinian which pushes the Brazilian towards Leonardo.
Il Flaco: "It's time to leave Palermo," then took back his statement. Zamparini: "He's at Madrid? There's them for him."
But Moratti can enter the game and Mourinho insists on Maicon.

Milan - "Real can take him if Kaka leaves." Who? Javier Pastore. This time it's the turn of El Flaco, one of the best talents in world football. The story that has been developed throughout the day after many words that were said. And those same words could force the number 10 of Palermo to the team of Mourinho. So if that happens, Mourinho is even more likely to push out Kaka for Maicon. In short, it is a intrigued situation. And not so simple.

Yes, no and yes The day began with El Flaco sends chills down the Palermo fans with: "I think it's time to have another experience," he said. Attention: the player had already expressed his desire of leaving Palermo to Delio Rossi and now he's just repeating it so it is not new. His agent has denied that he wanted to leave by saying: "He never said so" but the certification came from the president of Palermo. "Will Pastore leave Palermo? There are big clubs for him. The price? I paid 19 million for him when he was 18 years old. For the Italian teams, it is difficult because the foreign clubs have a bigger budget and I think Spanish football is the most appropriate for him. Real Madrid? They will buy him if Kaka leaves." Concatenations. Without frontiers.

Mou likes Zamparini continues: "Pastore is wanted by Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid and I think the latter is the most serious because Mourinho really likes him." That was said on May 30 after the Italian Cup final which also is related to what was said yesterday ("He will come if Kaka leaves"). The Premier League and Liga want him, while Serie A is hoping not to lose him.

Milan will not give up Because the Italians have no intention of giving up hope. "He is worth 50 million," said Zamparini some time ago. And to be honest, we find it very difficult that an Italian club that can shell out that much money. Juve and Inter are thinking about it because Pastore will be considered the big piece to build the future. Remember this: "From 1 to 10," said the Inter president "our chances of getting Pastore are at 5. One more than Sanchez." Alexis Sanchez will remain the chosen one for Inter but the story is stuffed with new perspectives: because of there is a big offer from Chelsea for Sneijder and that of Real for Maicon, here is a new Inter with a very heavy wallet. Then what? Kaka or the alternative Pastore, one of them will team up with Sanchez because Moratti has a great desire to do impress. The games have just started and this battle between the well established Brazilian and the newly emerged Argentinian can keep us busy for a long time this summer.

Nerazzurri's plans: sensational news from Argentina.
Over the weekend, the president called the coach that coached Zanetti and Samuel and now with Chile, Sanchez.
He has asked the availability to guide Inter (this or next year?). In that case, Leo would be open to become a director in the future.



Surprise: Moratti called the Argentinian coach. Is he for post-Leo?
The president has contacted the coach of Chile who has seen the growth of Sanchez and coached Zanetti and Samuel.

That phone call was a secret, but secrets do not last long in football. As well as many other coaches. So from Argentina, the news regarding that has started bouncing around about a coach, or rather two. Because over the weekend, Massimo Moratti called Marcelo Bielsa, the coach of Chile in the last World Cup, to ask him about the availability to coach Inter in place of Leonardo. His name, initially, surfaced before the sacking of Benitez. Now Bielsa must respond to Moratti on whether he can coach now or in the future. The Inter president has personally called the Argentinian coach, who was at his home in Rosario, but this is not enough to to be certain that Bielsa will arrive at Inter and Leonardo will leave. Pending provided contradictions because in football, not only for Inter, that everything is denied before the conclusion of any negotiation. We can stop at one certain fact about a phone call between Moratti and Bielsa, although his name was linked to Inter at one point when all the directors of Inter denied the possible sacking of Benitez.

Surprise So Moratti has previously thought about Bielsa before tacking on a surprise of Leonardo who could change the role once again, because his relationship with Moratti, unlike Benitez, is excellent and he is willingly to go back to his director role. Never as in this case, therefore, the condition is a must for two reasons: first because it is unpredictable on whether or not Moratti's call may have been only for exploratory purposes, and because Bielsa has refused a coaching job on the bench of Seville, Real Sociedad, Roma and the United States national team. The only certainty at this point is timing, because while it is true that the players are on vacation, Leonardo has the right, as well as the duty, to participate in the construction of a new Inter, so the decision to focus on Bielsa, or go on with him can not be postponed for too long.

Temptations There are reasons why Bielsa, whose nickname is "Loco" which is Pazza (Crazy) could be the right man for Pazza Inter. And here we enter the garden of the possible (and plausible) temptations of Moratti. Having followed his Argentina in the 2002 World Cup, we can say that, despite the early elimination, Bielsa built a spectacular national team, we saw the same thing a year ago in South Africa where he presented a surprisingly good Chile side with Alexis Sanchez. But even before that, as club manager, he was very successful in Argentina by winning two championships with Newell's Old Boys and one with Velez Sarsfield. The one single, small, perplexity because he never experiences in Europe, as he left Espanyol pretty much immediately to lead his own country. A manic worker, Bielsa knows how to win over his players just like Mourinho. And we cannot really rule out that captain Zanetti has spoken well of him because under Bielsa he played as a midfielder alongside with former Juventus player Simeon Sorin. But also Samuel, who under Bielsa was the linchpin in the defense of three, has great estimation as well as other Argentinians at Inter. There are many clues but they are not proving anything. Because a phone call just cannot remove Leonardo from the bench even if it is sufficient for this to please Bielsa.




Contacts for the Udinese striker and Bielsa happened at the same time since November. A coincidence?

Milan - They like Marcelo Bielsa. Bielsa is a very well respected coach who has just recently rejected the rumors of Seville and Roma. Why? Maybe because he also likes Moratti very much. In Chile, Marcelo Bielsa is like a celebrity. Because as a national team coach (until February), he led Chile to the World Cup in South Africa after, what it seems like a lifetime watching the World Cup on TV. He was truly the one that launched Alexis Sanchez who has a great relationship with the Argentinian who could be decisive for his career now on the rise.

Return in mind Marcelo Bielsa, now, could walk the streets of Italian football, the Telepass reported a phone call made by Massimo Moratti to the Argentinian. This was not the first time his name emerges as a candidate for the Inter bench as he was a candidate to replace Benitez even days before Abu Dhabi. Leonardo ultimately won the sprint to be the heir of Rafael Benitez. At that time, Bielsa was already out of Chilean Football Federation. Bielsa abandoned a five-year contract renewal and was freed on February 24, too late for Moratti to choose him as an Inter coach. But now he is good for the summer...

Colony and transfers One thing is clear is that his name was also on the list of Moratti for post-Benitez: but, as previously stated, he was available at that time. However, the feeling with the large colony of Argentinian at Inter remains a topic always in his favor. Today, the rumor that involves Bielsa and Moratti is strong and the transfer market scenarios that could open a way for an absolute start and outline some of the characters: the auction for Alexis Sanchez is live and the Nerazzurri could have one more weapon than anyone else. Also watch out for Mauricio Pinilla that Zamparini revealed a few weeks ago of new interest of the Nerazzurri.

The advantage It is clear that with his possible arrival on the bench, dealing for Sanchez would became easier: at that point, big offers from Manchester City might not be enough because the planet Inter inhabited by Bielsa would become a kind of lunar landing of the Chilean from Udinese. Among other things, It is no coincidence that Inter started going after Sanchez in November of 2010, with Bielsa was rumored to be Benitez's replacement. Here comes another important figure in the plots of the transfer market between Udinese and Inter: Fernando Felicevich, the agent of Sanchez and other players from the Chilean national team but he is also very close to Marcelo Bielsa. It is no secret that in recent months, Sanchez has always viewed Inter as a great favorite to land him despite around him there is an auction between millionaires. It is safe to say that Sanchez has always looked at the club of Massimo Moratti.

Pozzo says that he is not interested in those players that we have included in the deal for Sanchez.

The scoop of Gazzetta has been confirmed: the Brazilian coach is in negotiations to become a director at PSG.
The Argentinian is choice identified by Moratti.



Leonardo shock: back to Paris. Moratti to focus on the Argentinian.
PSG have offered a general director job to the Brazilian: the answer is by tomorrow.
And the president of Inter is waiting.

Milan - Incredible turnabout. Leonardo is on track back to Paris and Massimo Moratti is making way for the old madman Marcelo Bielsa. The Brazilian coach warned Inter last Thursday of an offer coming from PSG for him (5 million per year...) to become a general director. Within tomorrow, Leonardo must have a definitive to Inter. Leonardo was in Qatar to interview with the new owners of the French club.

The release Massimo Moratti is obviously not left with nothing. On Saturday, he contacted Marcelo Bielsa to get ready for a lighting pace agreement with the Argentinian. This acceleration is very normal for a candidate, who has been linked to the Inter job since November of last year where first contacts were made to potentially replace Rafael Benitez. He is now even in the picture even more clearly after a day of confirmations and unavoidable denials from Moratti.

Denials After the anticipation of the Gazzetta dello Sport of a phone call between the Inter president and the former coach of Argentina and Chile, yesterday morning, Moratti denied everything: "There was no phone call with Bielsa. I just want to clarify this. We have a coach in the name of Leonardo and he is a good coach." Everything theoretically is probable: telephoning the South American could have made by the technical director Marco Branca. And not because Moratti's desire is to release Leo because the 41 year-old from Niteroi is allowed to make choices. Choices at the same Moratti shares because on June 2nd to Inter Channel, he said: "Leonardo has qualities to become a very good general director." Moratti continued to deny this story: "I heard from him this morning (yesterday) and Leo is in Brazil. Nothing is concrete regarding that rumor."

Emir tempted Leonardo was in Milan until June 6, then he spent a few days in Sardinia and then he disappeared. He was seen yesterday with an ineffable "I can not talk right now." Before spending time in Brazil, he was sighted in Doha, Qatar, to talk to the leaders of Paris Saint German which suggested a return in a club that he spent the 1996-1997 season with. 70% of the French club belongs to Qatar Sports Investments, founded by Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, the emir's son and the heir to the throne of Qatar. At this meeting, Antoine Kombouarè, PSG current coach, was also present. There is also confirmation of this meeting by Bernabo, a Al Jazeera consultant and a key man in this story.

Bielsa and Nino Bielsa has had an Inter feeling a long time ago. The Rosarino coached an Argentina team that nourished by many Inter players (Argentina coach from '98 to 04') but also with Chile ('07 - '11) where Alexis Sanchez is the main goal for Inter. Bielsa was very close to the bench of Athletic Bilbao but Inter are just on a different level in terms of appeal.

New cycle This decision for the number one of Inter is not an easy one for at least three reasons. The first one relates to timing as Inter will return back to work on July 10 and there is also the transfer market. Second is about prospects. After the crashes in early April against Milan and Schalke, Moratti, in fact, was preparing a foundation for Guardiola with the idea of offering to Leonardo a management role. Everything faded because the Barcelona coach decided to comply for another year at Barcelona. Now Moratti is going after Bielsa. Bielsa is more than a caretaker. He is a constructor. Inter are not in a fight with Leonardo and if the Brazilian wants to stay then Inter would willingly accept. But Bielsa is already welcome.

15 Jun 11, 09:34


Bidding war: City are in front. Yesterday, Udinese met with Manchester United and today with the Bianconeri.
The Nerazzurri could have the assist of the former national team coach in Bielsa.

INTER: Inter are monitoring the situation and the former coach of Chile could be an ace for Inter to play.
JUVE: Today, Juve have scheduled a meeting with Gino Pozzo to present an offer.
UNITED: Yesterday, United flew to Barcelona to meet with Udinese and Sanchez's agent.
CITY: City seem to be ahead in the race for the Chilean as they have offered 35 million, including bonuses.

These days are very important and decisive for the future of Alexis Sanchez. Today, in fact, Gino Pozzo is expected to be in Milan to meet with Marotta and Paratici as Pozzo will listen to the new offer of Juve and it is just one of many appointments that Udinese have scheduled. The Bianconeri will try to get as close as possible to the 30 milion mark in order to wrest the competition for the Chilean. A figure that may not be enough given the great interest around the player, but it would keep Juventus alive with a future chance for Alexis Sanchez. Among the favorites are also Inter especially if Bielsa becomes the coach as he was truly the one that launched Sanchez with the Chilean national team.

Derby Yesterday, British bookmaker gave the odd of 1.65 that Sanchez will go to City. The owner of City has offered a much higher figure in 35 million with bonuses with the hope of luring Sanchez to the team of Mancini. Contacts were initiated but the white smoke, after meeting last night, has not arrived yet. The possible transfer of Sanchez has triggered a bidding war in England with the two big contenders in the clubs of Manchester. United, in fact, yesterday flew to Barcelona to meet with Gino Pozzo and have begun to enter into negotiations by taking advantage of the presence of the player's agent, Felicevich. The Red Devils have already acquired goalkeeper De Gea from Atletico Madrid, defender Jones from Blackburn and booked Ashley Young from Aston Villa. Sanchez could be their fourth signing. However, City are ahead of the talks because they took advantage of the break by United when the Red Devils were busy with Blackburn and Aston Villa. But the Glazer family, owners of United, now seems determined to overtake the cousins and at the same time reaffirms the supremacy of the city. And all of this there can be only one winner: Udinese. At this rate, the price is set to rise again.




The president is disappointed by the words of the Dutch.
Maicon in suspense. Acceleration for the Brazilian Casemiro.

Milan - Yesterday, a journalist of Gazzetta was sent to talk to Massimo Moratti and not only about the subject of Leonardo and Bielsa. "Sneijder has questioned his stay by explaining that 'only God knows if I can remain at Inter.'" Moratti was visibly annoyed. The laconic comment of Moratti opens skirmishes that will likely to lead to the sale of Sneijder to England.

Waiting for Lerby In addition to the latest coaching news, the Inter transfer market is actually blocked due to the difficulties of selling players for cash. Moratti, however, does not want to cede any key players of the treble winning season and Sneijder was as key as it can get. But before the possibility of pocketing 40 million (with a gain of 22 million since the Dutch arrived at Inter two summer ago for 15 plus 3 million in bonuses), even certain romanticism can be put aside. Because Sneijder is really liked by Chelsea and Manchester United. It is not a coincidence that next week, Soren Lerby is expected to be in Milan which could be an important step as he could be the one that officially brings to Branca offers from the Blues and the Red Devils. Chelsea could also put on the plate Mikael Essien but Inter prefer a lump sum of cash because the Ghanaian has a very high salary and one of the top priorities at Inter is to lighten up the payroll.

Waiting for Mourinho The other big that could leave Inter is Sisenando Maicon. Yesterday, his agent, Roberto Calenda denied any contact with Real Madrid while at the same time did not rule out anything. "Maicon has a contract with Inter and he is happy to stay at Inter," Calenda told Radio Sport. "The praises of Mourinho are nice but there is no contact. Mou wants him and there is no doubt about it. The transfer market can change. If a team thinks of a right-back, it is normal to think of Maicon. But he is under contract with Inter and is happy to stay in Milan." The fact remains that Real are committing to close the transaction for Neymar and the timing of a concrete offer from Madrid is unclear.

Nasri and Casemiro Waiting to make some money by selling players, Inter are keeping an eye on the situation of not only the 23 year-old Arsenal trequartista in Samir Nasri, but also the 19 year-old Brazilian of Sau Paolo Casemiro. There could be substantial acceleration for the midfielder, whose cost is about 5 million, in the upcoming days.

Inter bench: Leo leaves and the hunt for the replacement remains open.
Bielsa landed in Paris but the Nerazzurri continue to look around.
Ancelotti's no. Mihajlovic in the race. Dunga and Zico are also growing.



Marcelo Bielsa started from Buenos Aires at 17:05 (local time) on Wednesday with the Air France 417 to destination Paris.
Arrived in Paris at 12:55 but in the capital of France, we lost track of him.
Il Loco landed in Paris but Inter are still looking around.
Moratti puts an end to Leonardo: "I don't need another general director."
The hunt for the new coach remains open as Moratti has many names in mind: who will go to Inter?

Milan - The mystery of Bielsa has deepened. What seemed certain to be a yes on Wednesday turned to a no yesterday. But not only that, because it is unclear on whether the coach have doubts about Inter or vice versa. All of this with an extra element of suspense. Yesterday the former Chile coach landed in Paris. A trip that could very well relate to Inter. It would have been more convenient for him to land in Madrid if Bilbao were his final destination with Josu Urrutia, a presidential candidate, has been promised Bielsa in recent weeks.

Mutual concerns and implications The real stumbling block of what Moratti said on Wednesday ("Perhaps you all have created a big fuss, and in the end nothing will happen") arose from the perception that Bielsa could also say no to him as he did with Seville and Roma. For Inter, there are also doubts within as a portion of the veteran players would like to have a coach with more experience in Serie A and with him, things could turn for the worse. There was a meeting between Moratti, Branca and Ausilio to lay out the foundations for a new coach. And in that evening, Moratti removed all the doubts that he could backtrack Leonardo. He said it in words and with very annoyed tones. "Negative responses from Bielsa and Ancelotti? No. Something will happen in recent days. Leo is still with Inter but he has other ambitions. And I need a coach, not a general director." This betrays the discomfort that Moratti has on the Brazilian who is likely to become a director with PSG.

Contacts So to continue the search, Carlo Ancelotti was contacted but declined for hist past with the Rossoneri. He has a profile of a coach with technical quality and personality, international experience and able to handle a dressing room full of stars. There are also the names of Delio Rossi and Gian Piero Gasperini, who have significant experience in Serie A. Another is Sinisa Mihajlovic who, as a player, had seen and known many things in our football as well as the environment of Inter. The Serbian has been pre-alerted but he is under contract with Fiorentina and only a direct call from Moratti could persuade Della Valle.

Villas Boas, ideal but expensive The perfect choice would be Andre Villas Boas, the 33 year-old conductor of Porto, a former assistant of Mourinho in this same Inter and now is desired by many clubs after winning the league, cup and the Europa League. Too bad he has an out clause of 15 million and Porto will not give any discounts.

Alternative choices Inter certainly must tighten the circle shortly. The final choice will be up to Moratti, who have been represented by Branca and Ausilio Dunga and Zico. Rather difficult to think about Spalletti but he is in the midst of the Russian league with Zenith. The curriculum is all there and Moratti will make his choice.


The shortlist of the candidates to coach Inter also include Zico, Dunga, Delio Rossi, Capello, Hiddink and Villas Boas.

Milan Inter have many solutions in these hours. Sometimes even in contradiction to each other: technical, tactical philosophy and wealth of experience of candidates. While Marcelo Bielsa arrived in Europe yesterday to make a change for his future, Marco Branca hasn't had a moment off the phone. With calls going to all latitudes. The Inter technical director has contacted a lot of coaches and paved the way to Massimo Moratti to decide and solve the puzzle quickly. The list is indeed large and for a big club like Inter, the race to choose a new coach is far from simple. There is a real casting going on.


Carlo Ancelotti - 52 years old - Ex Chelsea coach

The call to Carlo Ancelotti arrived at lunchtime yesterday. The former Chelsea coach is still under contract with that club and has denied Inter could be because of his past with the Rossoneri.

Fabio Capello - 65 years old - England coach

There's temptation to return to Italy for Fabio Capello. He is a proven solution for Inter but with "Milan's scudetto is the first true one after 2006." A stab to Moratti...

Carlos Dunga - 47 years old - Ex Brazil coach

His nomination is fascinating. He was the Brazil coach from 2006 to 2010 winning the Coppa America in 2007 and the Conferderations Cup in 2009 but failed at the World Cup by getting knocked out in the quarterfinals against the Netherlands.


Delio Rossi - 51 years old - Ex Palermo coach

The former coach of Palermo, just got beaten by Inter in the Italian Cup final despite a good showing, yesterday, admitted that he could arrive at the city of Milan. The doubts of Inter are related to the lack of international experience and dealing with big name players. But his football is beautiful and carefree.

Andre Villas Boas - 33 years old - Porto coach

The 33 year-old former assistant to Mourinho at this same Inter is the ideal man. After the treble with Porto (league, Portuguese cup and Europa League), he is liked by many clubs. He has a 15 million out clause and he is the dream of Inter.

Zico - 58 years old - Ex Flamengo coach

The former Udinese star, in recent years, has had significant experience in club level. In Europe, he led Fenerbahce (from 2006 to 2008 ), CSKA Moscow (2009) and Olympiacos (2009-2010). In May 2010, he signed to become Flamengo coach but resigned in October. Now he is free. Doesn't lack experience but he is an outsider.


Gian Piero Gasperini - 53 years old - Ex Genoa coach

Gian Piero Gasperini, yesterday, had a heavy sponsor: Enrico Preziosi. The president of Genoa has assured Moratti of Gasperini's qualities. His name is on the hit parade. And he also knows many former Genoa players at Inter like Milito, Motta, Kharja, Ranocchia.

Guus Hiddink - 64 years old - Turkey coach

Here is another with a very thick profile but has a contract with the Turkish Football Federation until June 2012 at 7 million including bonuses. The Dutchman has been going after by Roman Abramovich and Chelsea. Impossible.

Sinisa Mihajlovic - 42 years old - Fiorentina coach

International experience as a player he doesn't lack. He knows the Inter environment and has an iron fist to handle this dressing room. He is linked with Fiorentina and a call by Moratti could persuade Della Valle.

GdS reports that Eto'o stays but he is asking for a new contract (one more year) and... Sanchez.

Villas Boas, the coach of Porto and former assistant of Mou, jumps on top the the preferences of Moratti.

"He's very good certainly costs a lot." The fans (on Gazzetta.it) want him.



Inter, assault Villas Boas. And there is Capello at the window.
Double challenge with Chelsea: for Hiddink and the coach that Porto don't want to let go.
Also the candidacy of English national team coach who is in front of Gasperini and Rossi.

Milan - All out for Andre Villas Boas. But without neglecting the other candidates in the crosshairs of Massimo Moratti. First, there are two other great candidates in Fabio Capello and Guus Hiddink but there is also Delio Rossi who could be a really surprise for the Inter bench. At least for now, one candidate's odd to become the next Inter coach has suddenly plummeted and it's Sinisa Mihajlovic who was one of the possible successor to Leonardo.

The ballots This has been a hectic week at Palazzo Saras. Technical director Marco Branca has been working 24/7 to skim all the possibilities at hand. The initial contact with Marcelo Bielsa did not let to the desires of both parties because of "personal problems" of the Argentinian coach. But the mishap isn't a surprise to the Nerazzurri, in the meantime, in fact, will work on the two favorites in Villas Boas and Guus Hiddink. For the Dutchman, however, the Turkish Football Federation has opposed with a firmly no. But that's not enough. Roman Abramovic has a direct relationship with the Turkey coach and at the same time working on Villas Boas. No coincidence that on Monday the president of Porto, Pinto da Costa, met with the leaders of the Blues who are extremely interested in former Mourinho's assistant. We'll have to wait and see but the English competition is formidable. So much so that Abramovich has sent an emissary to Porto to press the Portuguese champions.

The race But Inter are also at full speed on this front with a strong relationship with the 33 year-old during his time at Inter. According to reliable sources, about then days ago Villas Boas was a guest of Inter president at the occasion was a dinner at Pallazzo Serbelloni. Then there is the feeling between the two parties and Inter could count on this factor to induce Villas Boas to break contract with Porto. But it is not easy. Pinto da Costa has a 15 million clause and will use all of his weapons to hold on to the coach. Moreover, Villas Boas is expected to return to work soon for next season with a meeting on June 30.

Contact According to the Portuguese newspapers yesterday, Inter have offered 40 million for Radamel Falcao and the coach. Porto said no leaving only one door open for the striker who was the top scorer in Europa League with 17 goals. But that is not the only track: Fernando could also become bargaining chip in this sensational triangulation. But there's more. In January, Porto came forward for Santon and his name could once again re-emerge at this time. However, Moratti knows that this game with the Portuguese club is completed and for the next few hours, he will go over how this game will be played on the field.

The alternative The number one alternative to Villas Boas is Fabio Capello. His candidacy has been cyclical for the Nerazzurri. It is no coincide that yesterday Massimo Moratti has ruled out the red flags (issues/problems) for the former Juventus coach. The survey was done and Branca has got the impression that this road is feasible. It is true that Capello is linked to English Football Federation for another year. But in his contract there are no clauses or penalties: so he is cheaper. And then, the England coach is not living brilliant moments during these times so in short, his potential farewell is much less traumatic than it might seem on the surface.

Italian way Yesterday Massimo Morati has also named Delio Rossi and Gasperini. Currently, the only coaches in Serie A are still in the running. But the tracks from the foreigners of Moratti are more fascinating.



"Bielsa said no because of personal reasons. Villas Boas is good but costly. Capello? What not to like?"

Milan - Massimo Moratti has been doing a lot of hunting in his office. Yesterday, the president of Inter started to make news about the next coach. "Mihajlovic is part of another team and I, for now, will not make move for those who are under contract. But I want to point out that there are talks of us getting no from this candidate and another no from other but we have not received any thing like that. Only from Bielsa because of personal reasons and the dialogue was unable to continue. For the rest, we have a mountain of yes's and now I have to choose." In the evening, without the pressure of the cameras, the number one of Inter speaks more calmly about this interesting race to get the man who will sit on the Inter bench.

President, where are we?
"It will be a weekend of work. No hurry, we will evaluate the choices."

What characteristics should the successor of Leonardo have?
"I am looking for a coach of Inter, who doesn't pretend to change team a lot. I think of a one year contract with an option on the second."

This detail is reminiscent of a interim (caretaker) coach.
"Not at all. At Inter, there is nothing to be taken care of. Just try to win everything."

Do you like Villas Boas?
"Certainly but he has a very high out clause (15 million). It's like buying a player but that figure remains high. A clause that is not for transfer market because you could tell in the case of Mourinho who won everything..."

So you're moving to the former tactics of the Special One?
"I see it very difficult. Also because I think that the names interest us (preference is Hiddink) are also liked by Chelsea."

And Capello?
"Why, what not to like?"

What are the facts about these names that we've heard?
"With Van Gaal, it would be a risk to shake the team. Rossi, Mihajlovic, Gasperini, Dunga and Zico have all been taken into consideration."

What has happened to Leonardo?
"He told me about this opportunity and it is unique. I would never hold on to him because of it. Even though that there is no official announcement yet but he is no longer the coach of Inter."

Are you close to find the new coach?
"Next week."

What can you tell us about Bielsa?
"A great gentleman. At first he was thrilled to come to Inter. Then problems occur, even to his family, and he had to decline. He was truly sorry and had a letter explaining the reasons for his no."

18 Jun 11, 07:05


The temptation is Malaga. The Brazilian wants a two year contract but Inter will go to to 2013.
Nagatomo has became all Nerazzurro.

Milan - Problems, solutions, stomach aches and more. These issues are happening right now at Inter with different players: Lucio, Eto'o, Sneijder, Muntari, Nagatomo and Viviano. Where do we start? Let's go with the latest.

Lucio in balance? The latest stomach ache seems to be Lucio's who has a contract until 2012. His agent for Europe (Licci) but we think about his global manager in Sandro Becker to follow the footsteps of, say, Sneijder. "We have received a proposal from Malaga and everybody knows about it, but Lucio wants to play at a high level of competition in Europe. There are many clubs interested in him. After Coppa America we will know more about this situation." Inter do not want to lose him and have recently proposed one year extension until 2013. Proposal accepted? Not yet because the player seems to want a two-year contract to close the deal and stay at Inter.

Eto'o yes, Muntari no Yesterday, Samuel Eto'o spend the day in Milan. Sooner or later his comments will be clarified to Moratti but the truth is that he has no intention of leaving Inter. Moratti, who know has something else to think about, knows this very well and that is why he has reassured the fans: "On the Eto'o front the fans should stay calm, absolutely because there is nothing to worry about." The Lion King, apart from offers made by City and Chelsea, is fully convinced at Inter so much so that he has sponsored Sanchez but also Muntari. "We miss him so much," said Eto'o. "We all miss him especially Lucio, Maicon and I and we hope that he comes back soon." It's hard because Galatasaray have offered 7 million euros to Inter for the full acquisition. Inter have said yes and now the player will have to decide.

Yuto all Inter Now is a good news: Yuto Nagatomo is an Inter player fully. Yesterday Cesena and Inter have concluded the first 500,000 euros that let Nagatomo to land at Inter in January. The club has also paid 4 million (of the 6.5 million remaining) accompanied by three boys, Milan Jiraseck, Luca Garritano and the most experienced Luca Caldirola. Some French sources have suggested that Leonardo could "snatch" Nagatomo for PSG but it is just fantasy.

Doubts of Wes and Viviano The restless rumor about Sneijder hasn't seemed to stop after the "only God knows if I will stay." Naturally, Inter will not only have to worry about their own search for the next coach but they will need to wait to see if Hiddink will go to Chelsea to understand more. What about Viviano? Yesterday, there was another meeting between Inter and Bologna and the difference between the two teams is still too big (10 million for Bologna's half). So the risk is he could be enveloped on June 24. Meanwhile, Inter will exercise the 1 million for Bardi's other half who perhaps could become their third goalkeeper.

Pandev's agent: "No exchange with Palacio, he will stay."

Inter and Villas Boas can be done.
The track to Mihajlovic is closed ("At Florence for many years to come") and now pushing for the Portuguese.
Technical director Branca has the OK from the coach now it's up to the president: to free the former student of Mou from Porto, it costs 15 million.



The blitz by Branca and there is the first yes.
And the 15 million? Moratti is thinking about it.
The technical director has had the OK from the Portuguese
The president has Mou's student in mind and is ready to pay the clause to Porto.

Milan - A weekend of work. Massimo Moratti has had his main men working for a new coach more seriously starting Friday. Marco Branca and Ausilio are on the mission and they have increased contacts with a man who is the clear number one choice by the Inter fans: Andre Villas Boas.

Temptation The 33 year-old coach of Porto has been highly respected in Palazzo Saras for a long time so obviously that he is in the thoughts of all the directors at Inter even before Leonardo chose Paris. But now the only real obstacle is the clause of 15 million which Porto have blocked the former assistant of Jose Mourinho. Massimo Moratti is very tempted to pay the fee for one of the talented coaches in the world, so much so that after the treble with Porto, he has been linked to many clubs including Chelsea and even Arsenal.

Villas silent, agent instrumental This explains the blitz of Branca who has kept a good relationship with Villas Boas after the period of July 2008 and October 2009 when the Portuguese spent his days at Pinetina. The coach hasn't leaked anything because the situation is not simple. As a child, he was a fan of Porto and in a year he has became the idol of his city. He would love to stay even if saying no to the three top European clubs is not easy. That is why Villas Boas doesn't want to say anything before a certain check from the Inter chairman. In this sense, there are instrumental statements coming from his agent, Carlos Goncalves: "Andre is only thinking about Porto and other rumors are nonsense."

Doubts With the usual doubt related to the fact that for Villas Boas, Moratti will have to spend a figure for him instead of buying a good player. Perhaps a chat with the minister of finance Rinaldo Ghelfi was held with the Nerazzurri president. Ghelfi knows that at this time, Inter can also pay for a coach. Especially when it comes to one who knows Inter and the Moratti family and one who can make a big difference and work with younger players. Villas Boas can start a new project at Inter. Many have failed (including Juve) and have beaten the two big competitors in Chelsea and Arsenal.

Idea Guarin It is not impossible that Branca could take the opportunity to meet with the president of Porto Pinto Da Costa and maybe even to talk about one of the many players whom Inter could be interested in. Among those there is also Fredy Guarin, the 24 year-old Colombian midfielder who scored 5 goals in Europa League last year where they won. Everything will be decided by Moratti who, with other candidates in mind such as Delio Rossi and Gasperini, will close the casting early next week.

Mihajlovic says he is staying at Fiorentina.

20 Jun 11, 06:14


Three clues for a coach. The president renounces the bidding war for Villas Boas (now there's Chelsea) and describes the characteristics of the future coach: experience, charisma and confidence.
Coincide with the portrait of Fabio Capello. But also with that of Hiddink and Spalletti. Decision is expected tomorrow.



Moratti: "Confidence. Will not betray us."
"Entering the week of the announcement of a coach. Eto'o, Maicon and Sneijder told me that they want to stay."

The quality of the next coach:

Confidence: Moratti has listed the qualities that will be needed by the new coach of Inter. First he said: "I want a coach who will give me confidence."
Experience: The new coach, continued the Inter president, will have experience. Possibly not only in Italy but also internationally.
Charisma: The other quality set by Moratti is charisma. That, with the experience, tells us the name that has already been approached by Inter: Fabio Capello.

Forte dei Marmi - In the morning, Massimo Morrati spent his days at a restaurant that prepares the best spaghetti with clams in the area. At around 13:30, he had lunch with the former president of Milan City Council Manfredi Palmeri who is also a big Inter fan. Around 15:30, his son, Angelo Mario met them at the restaurant. And then Massimo Moratti gave a first statement regarding the new coach of Inter by saying "I want a coach who will give me confidence."

What type of coach?
"One with great experience. Because it takes experience and charisma."

President, at this time, what is your state of mind because it seems difficult to find one? Are you worried?
"Absolutely not. I feel calm. You see, I like this game, I have read many names. I have also seen much criticism on Inter and the more it happens the more I'm fired up."

When do you plan to announce the next coach of Inter?
"Within a week. A sense of responsibility that I've got it myself."

About Villas Boas, tell the truth, did you seriously think about it?
"Yes, especially he would be more than willing to come, but there is the termination clause which is a very important one. And there was no trip for us. However, the names that were put up are quite a lot and it seems like the newspapers are deciding the coach of Inter."

It's useless to deny that you also thought about Bielsa...
"There were negotiations/operations going on and Bielsa was one of them but he had a personal problem which we had to consider."

Your words would seem to lead to Capello...
"Oh, Capello..." Moratti hesitated for a moment and it seems like that name touches him. He continues: "All coaches can be. I don't want to offend anyone, Italians or foreigners."

So many names including those of Gasperini and Delio Rossi but are those coaches offering themselves?
"Those would be marked all."

And Mihajlovic?
"His club, Fiorentina, has removed him from these things and for the moment we are just going to leave Sinisa in peace."

Last year we spoke of Low, the German national team coach...
"It's true. He is a good coach but I don't know what kind of experience he has. Surely the way his team played in South Africa at the World Cup excites me."

What is your relationship with Leo? Which hurts more, his betrayal or Mourinho's?
"With Leo, the relationship is good. No treason. He's been calling me every night and told me that he hasn't signed anything and is still the coach of Inter. But I realized that he loves to be a director not as a coach. He did not like being on the bench so much. Better now than in mid-season..."

His return would be unbelievable...
"Uh, yes."

Thought about Spalletti?
"No, with Zenit there is a good relationship."

And Hiddink?
"We're not going in that direction."

And in which direction should your players? Lucio now seems to have a stomach ache.
"Calling that a stomach ache is what I don't like. It is a phrase used for Ibrahimovic and everything ended with a big operation. As far as I can tell Maicon, Sneijder and Eto'o spoke to me and told me that they want to continue with us. It's clear that we are in the transfer market and we are focused on everything and everyone, even the players that can be sold."

El Shaarawy is a big signing for Milan? Did you make contact?
"A good player but we already have players in that role."



Three clues planted yesterday by the president bring us to the England coach who is available.

Milan - At least he has admitted that this little situation of great uncertainty amuses him. Massimo Moratti, however, has shown three clues in the interview that the new coach has to have charisma, experience and that the president must inspire a sense of total trust. And he has also eliminated four candidates: Villas Boas, Hiddink, Mihajlovic and Spalletti. Different reasons, the same conclusion: they are no longer in the running.

Eliminated Continuing the game of deletion so in Gasperini and Delio Rossi it is difficult to find the first of the qualities listed by the Inter president: charisma. Neither of the two Italian coaches are "character" and Moratti is trying to find a man with prestige internationally, like Mourinho, or a strong character like Mancini that he wanted at all costs because Mancini inspired him with the idea of a winner. Gasperini and Rossi are considered excellent craftsmen and able to play attacking football spectacularly. But both lack that "it".

Fabio So the casting has started to narrow down. Dunga and Zico must surely be considered because they are well-known figures in the world but in the first place you can not see anyone other than Fabio Capello. He certainly has the charisma and experience but it remains to be seen whether Capello can give Moratti the trust after many ugly words and after so many battles.

The node The problem to be solves looks like this: a direct and frank conversation about his desire to come back to the game where he will return to a daily confrontation with the players and the media. Capello was also taken into account last year before Benitez. Moratti has always considered him not only a winner but also a fussy man, proud and tactically shrewd. All relevant quality. Some indirect signals about his availability that Inter have already received and one of them is that there are no clauses for compensation in favor of the English Football Federation.

21 Jun 11, 06:22


Coach hunting.
The F.A. does not want to give its coach up but there's still hope to convince the English.
The more popular alternative is Gasperini who will meet with Branca today.
Fiorentina are still locking up Mihajlovic, but never say never.
And the names do not stop here.



Final assault between Inter and Capello. Then there's Gasperini.
Hold up for the England coach and looking for green light at the last minute.
Today meeting with the former Genoa coach.

Milan - A screeching halt for Fabio Capello but for Inter, this game hasn't closed yet. Today there will be a final attempt to get the green light for the current England coach. But at the same time, however, Inter technical director, Marco Branca will continue to look for other consultations. Particularly today, on Gian Piero Gasperini's agenda is an appointment that could change his life. The coach is still under contract with Genoa but in recent days he has already had positive contact with the leaders of Inter. But now a leap in quality is needed since the face-to-face meeting can push him to the top and become the favorite of Massimo Moratti.

Ligurian's track The coach has a few important qualities. First is a modern and spectacular style of play. And then, the feeling with important players at Inter like Milito, Thiago Motta, Kharja and Ranocchia: they were all in the Rossoblu shirt in which all experienced good times and those players could help their teammates to adapt to Gasperini's style of player technically as well as tactically quicker.

Hanging by a hair The no from the F.A. has extinguished the smiles born yesterday at the headquarter of Inter after a successful blitz by Marco Branca for Fabio Capello in Marbella. The hope is that the link between Inter and Capello could force the hand of the English. Fabio Capello will explain to his current employers that an early termination of the contract would suit both parties. Meanwhile, yesterday Tronchetti Provera had a few words about this coaching search: "I am not concerned about the lack of a coach. Eventually others will have to worry about it."

Avoiding Moratti Also Massimo Moratti doesn't even look concern as he said that "Gasperini? I've heard anything about it," and then "I know nothing. Talk to Branca and I should call other directors. Even today I could not follow these events of the new coach. However I don't want to disturb other clubs."

Hiddink and Blanc difficult In fact, Inter will try to limit "disturbing" other federations. The high-profile and yet viable alternatives are Guss Hiddink and Laurent Blanc. The Frenchman, who lost his father in Saturday, is very close to the Moratti family but the fact that he is under contract makes him unlikely risking breaking away from his own federation, despite a difficult relationship. Even more difficult is the trail that leads to Hiddink. The Dutchman, whose agent denies contact with Inter, is linked to Turkey but he could also leave to become a technical director at a Chelsea team who is closing in on Villas Boas, the real objective for Inter after the rejection of Bielsa.

Del Bosque the big surprise? The last name behind Gasperini is Vicente Del Bosque. With a face of a grandfather, the 60 year-old Spanish coach of the world champion has won it all and is proven to be able to handle any dressing room. Experience and charisma that he has in abundance. And especially that the Spanish federation would not hang on to him. Inter would have to think about it but should not excluded other twists.

Viola wall Finally, there is Sinisa Mihajlovic, contacted last week by the Inter management, but has been "frozen". Yesterday at the Franchi there was another banner against the coach ("Serbian Miha, give us joy and go away"), but the team has stressed the negative messages with another official communication: "ACF Fiorentina and coach Sinisa Mihajlovic insist that the professional relationship is not in question as it has been made clear in the past days also from the same Mihajlovic."

Clarification But that's not enough. For the avoidance of doubt in the late afternoon through the site, Mihajlovic denied the statement appeared on "Sportskom zumalu", a Serbian newspaper: "It would be impossible to say no to Inter. My response would be positive and I would not refuse Inter. In the city of Milan, as a player and as an assistant coach, I spent four wonderful years. And the relationship with Moratti is more than friendly." Closed door, that is. Provided that Inter do not want to reopen it.

Zenga bitterness Among the former Nerazzurri players his voice has also been heard. Walter Zenga, now at Al Nasr said that "If they offer me a job, of course I could not refuse but I don't like living in a dream world."





Lucio: "Give me one more year, I believe in this team."

Rio de Janeiro - With the face is tougher than usual as Lucio exiting the bus to the gathering of Brazilian players at the airport in Rio. Avoiding about 2-3 microphones, but the warrior of Inter stopped abruptly when a question came in Italian.

Lucio, do you want to clarify your future? Does Moratti now everything?
"Like what? I want to stay at Inter but as long as my contract gets extended until June of 2014."

A year longer than the proposal presented by the technical director Branca?
"Exactly. I trust Inter and I'm sure the management will build a team capable of winning everything again. But Moratti has to trust me. The Nerazzurri should not look at my date of birth. I still have such force and hunger for victory."

And if the Nerazzurri don't go beyond 2013?
"Then I would begin to consider other options."

There has been talk of interest coming from Malaga.
"No Malaga. If Inter leave me to another club then my will would be to conquer the Champions League. I don't go in search of the last good contract and the quick money. I repeat, I still have the enthusiasm of a kid. I want to win big trophies."

There was talk of a possible return to Bayern.
"I want to stay at Inter. I know the president Moratti and I know Branca. I am happy in Milan and in this dressing room. In short, I have no problem here on or off the field. I am convinced that eventually the team will understand that my requests are legitimate."

Do you think Inter are at the end of a cycle?
"Why? A few weeks ago this group won the Italian Cup by proving that our bellies are not full. I don't see unmotivated players at Appiano Gentile. And when I'm here with the national team is because our new coach Mano Menezes has realized that, despite my age, I can still be important in the central part of the field."

Will negotiations with Inter close quickly?
"I think so. There are no mysteries. There are no strange requests. I just want a contract until 2014. And my agent will find the right agreement with the team."

The warrior has spoken. Margins of negotiation are few. The ball now goes to president Moratti.



Materazzi to America. Then would return to become a director.

Milan - It was in the air for about 10 days. This is not a goodbye, more like a see you later. Marco Materazzi, yesterday, is no longer an Inter player. Yesterday the defender's representatives met with the leaders of Inter and both parties have established the consensual termination of the contract a year before the original deadline which is June 30, 2012. Marco Materazzi now will take off his Inter shirt after 10 seasons, 276 games, 20 goals, 5 Scudetti, 1 Champions League, 1 Club World Cup, 3 Super Cups and 4 Italian Cups. But those numbers and trophies don't tell all about the symbol of Matrix at Inter. What you need to know about Materazzi is his dedication and professionalism of one who has always been the first to show up at Pinetina an the last to leave even when his time on the field was gradually reduced.

Idea USA, then Inter again Materazzi, however, will not close his football career at Inter. His agent Claudio Vigorelli has been given a mandate to examine the offers that are coming in order to extend his career another season. The most likely destination remains to be the MLS, the professional football league of the USA. Materazzi, in the past, has spent his days in the United States as tourist. The certainty is that with Inter it is not just a goodbye but a see you later. With president Massimo Moratti has reiterated his commitment in the near future to define a role within the Inter family for Matrix.

Moratti: No meeting with Gasperini.

23 Jun 11, 08:11


The former Genoa coach is now the favorite.
Moratti: "We are evaluating. And what if Leonardo returns?"
The hypotheses of Quique Sanchez Flores and Mihajlovic remain.



Meeting with Gasperini. Moratti: "A serious person but I have not decided yet."
The former coach of Genoa has the advantage over other candidates.
The president of surprise: "I could also recall Leonardo."

Milan - Gian Piero Gasperini and Inter are now very close. The turning point took place yesterday after a very successful meeting between the coach, Massimo Moratti, technical director Marco Branca and sporting director Piero Ausilio: first meeting with all four after ten days of coach hunting. Before making the final decision, Inter president, however, does not want to think it would be a good choice but he wants it to be a very good one. With Gasperini, it must take the right kind of feeling (Mourinho is the sponsor of former Genoa coach and has spoken about him emphatically) and Moratti wants to let the feelings settle after the first real face-to-face with Gasperini. If things going forward as it should, Gasperini, today, could free himself from Genoa. At that point, Palazzo Saras could also make its own announcement. Otherwise there would be another delay, and those on the notebooks of Marco Branca are still, effectively, in the running. In this cause, there are Quique Sanchez Flores, Rudi Garcia and Delio Rossi. Hiddink and Mihajlovic are more unlikely.

The day After the morning in which he, once again, exercised his right to remain silent, Massimo Moratti in the afternoon entered his office later than usual at 17:45: "A meeting with Gasperini? You just have bad information." Instead, in an area near by, he had already met with the coach and the chat was positive. To Gasperini, like any other candidates with whom there were contacts, the situation at Inter was explained thoroughly: with the looming of the financial fair play, no shopping sprees, lower wages and the focus on younger players. Therefore, Inter must enter the transfer market selling players eventually. The coach did not make any special requests and has the advantage of having already coached Milito, Kharja, Ranocchia and Thiago Motta. And the fifth could also be added with Criscito... Financial details of the contract are not available yet but since he made 1.2 million at Genoa, you can expect it to be increased to 1.5 or 2 million a year. One year contract with an option for a second season.

Leonardo variable Moratti, however, admitted of a meeting at the end of his day: "The circle is tightening around Gasperini? There is an evaluation of him as a person which also is very serious and a great professional. But I have not decided. What was our impression of him? It is based on what he has done in recent years. There are always alternatives and there's also the fact that Leonardo is still our coach. I'd like to remind people of that. It's not that Leonardo has left or sought to leave. He's had the freedom to see whether there was a possibility, which is not entirely football-related, because it was something that was no longer his job, but another job. But in any case he remains our coach and I could recall him whatever happens. Are there conditions for him to return to Milan? Of course." Leonardo will not return as Inter coach, this is obvious, but the Brazilian has yet to sign for PSG waiting for transfer money from the new owners. Everything is pro Gasperini. As soon as Leonardo is released, Inter will announce his heir.

Quique, Guus and Sinisa Gasperni's competitions for the Inter job remains but they are moving out of the picture. Despite his sponsor has given up another run for re-election and the opening of his agent ("If they want, Inter should call Turkey"), Guus Hiddink is still far away. Quique Sanchez Flores is free and was recently sacked by Atletico Madrid. Yesterday, there was a rumor, unconfirmed, of an imminent blitz of Branca to Spain for him.

Figo to Guardiola Now that the casting is closing, come to the surface some of the ideas flashed by the Inter directors at this time. One came from Luis Figo. The great player called to lead his former teammates from the bench, to Guardiola. Pep remains the top of the wishes for next season when Spalletti and perhaps even Mourinho will be free. Unless Gasperini becomes the Allegri of Mourinho and they both live happily ever after.



With Gasperini, watch for the defender but Napoli are pressing.
Viviano-chaos: Bologna ask for Coutinho. Santon to Roma?

Milan - Domenico Criscito is valued at 12 million by Enrico Preziosi. Right now, Napoli are a serious contender for his service and they have been for a long time, maybe too long: the boy is on vacation in the United States and the club of De Laurentiis awaits the definitive yes but Inter, with Gasperini, could give a steer to point straight at the Azzurri defender of Prandelli.

Open table with Genoa We should keep an eye on this because Moratti and Preziosi have already spoken about the boy when Maicon seems to go to Madrid, and he still could be, but it has slowed down recently. So because of the breaking on Real Madrid part, Preziosi turned to another team and Criscito was very close to Mazzarri's Napoli, all done in fact, with payment of 12 million which will be paid over two years. Until yesterday, the day that could make Gasperini the new Inter coach and now his thoughts could turn to Criscito. Inter, at this point, have this issue on an open table with Genoa, a matter not to be underestimated.

Renewal Oh and with Genoa yesterday was the day of fully purchase Kharja, nothing happened but the idea is that at the end of June, there will be a renewal of the loan.

Node for Viviano Here is chapter for Viviano. Maurizio Setti, vice president of Bologna, said that "we are thinking of not getting the envelopes", confirming that the goalkeeper is liked by Roma and also that "his value is closer to 8 million than 4." What will be the way out to resolve the ownership by tomorrow evening? Bologna have asked for Castaignos but Inter did not agree. So attention was redirected to Coutinho who Inter believe will be a positive starter (in another team) next year. Assumptions of agreement: 5.5 million, all of Khrin and the loan of Coutinho. Viviano could then become all Inter with the next loan spell at Roma.

Turkish and Santon Meanwhile, voices from Turkey: Fenerbahce would like to have Thiago Motta but if Gasperini comes, it would be tough. For Galatasaray, they are ready to pay 8 million for Muntari. Will Inter and Muntari say yes? Another rumor is that Santon to Roma on loan, possible.

Corriere dello Sport reports that Sinisa Mihajlovic is Moratti's choice but Branca opposes.

25 Jun 11, 07:44


The former right back of Santos is coming for 5.5 million.
An error by Bologna gives the goalkeeper to the Nerazzurri.

Milan - Gasperini's arrival has brought the first, surprised, signing: for 5.5 million euros (1.5 million per season for 4 years), Jonathan Cicero Moreira, born in '86 and up until yesterday was owned by Santos and Cruzeiro, is coming to Inter. The deal has been accomplished at this time by exploiting the fact that Fiorentina had to drop an option on the player: after some time, Jonathan has the advantage of having an EU passport and maybe the one that may have to replace Sisenando Maicon, who has been followed by Real Madrid more and more.

Viviano returns That was the first signing, here is the second, almost like a gift. According to sources from Bologna, this is the result of a technical error and material in the compilation of the envelope of Bologna. The club only indicated a figure of 4.7 million but did not add the total value (9.4) of the player. That is mandatory step since last year, this is not the holder of his card. Inter, offered a figure around 4.1 million coincidentally the one proposed during negotiations, therefore, are entitled to the player. That incredible "own-goal" by Bologna has put Viviano into the hands of Inter. Today, at 11, both envelopes will be opened with the whole truth.

Half Kucka Meanwhile, the name of Jura Kucka, Slovakian born in '87, has reappeared. For him there is also Milan but Inter could be ahead of the competition as they are trying to get half of him with subsequent discussion in January a little like Ranocchia-style: at early 2012, Genoa and Inter will talk more about the player and if Gasp needs him, Kucka can reach him at Inter.

Palacio-Pandev Another round, another Genoa player: Rodrigo Palacio, an explosive winger for Gasperini. Enrico Preziosi is convinced that it can be done "but only with a compensation technique" and thinking about Goran Pandev. It remains to convince the Macedonian. This deal is very doable.

EU spot Now news from Brazil. Maicon, hour by hour, is waiting for the final offensive play by Real Madrid and Mourinho's obsession could become a reality within a few days. So, how can it be fixed? It is called Jonathan, who at this point also has removed the link between Inter and Danilo. Jonathan could and should also be the alternative for the same Maicon. Also from the front of another Brazilian, Inter continue to like Carlos Enrique Casemiro, a quality midfielder of San Paulo: Inter are there although with the status of non-EU (Inter have only one box available for now) would put him in competition with Argentinian Banega of Valencia.

Wes and Sulley And what about Sneijder? Manchester United and City are still testing waters while Muntari said: "I'm coming back to Inter at the beginning of the retreat in Pinzolo. I want to stay in Italy and play with my team. But I hate to sit on the bench so I'm going to train well, working hard and then we'll see..." There.

Now that we've got Jonathan, does that mean Maicon is leaving?

Yesterday meeting with Genoa to convince Pandev to accept the exchange.
The Nerazzurri are vigilant also on Alvarez and Casemiro.

Milan - Gian Piero Gasperini has already talked about the needs of Inter in the early contacts with the leaders of Inter. The coach from Grugliasco knows that any heavy investment will be tied to the sale of some important players. The most likely candidates to leave are Maicon and Sneijder but Gasperini has indicated that both are very important and might be ready to tack on the 3-4-1-2 if the right offer doesn't come for the Dutch trequartista.

Palacio The hottest name currently linked with Inter is Palacio, the 29 year-old winger whom Gasperini knows well. The Rossoblu sporting director Stefano Capozucca arrived late after noon and the official reason for the visit was to find a resolution of the contract of Gasperini that bounds him with Genoa until 2012. But there was also talk of the possible exchange between the Argentine and Goran Pandev. The Macedonian would be reluctant to accept as he is very tempted by a foreign solution. They are working on it.


Menez? Alvarez more likely And then there Menez who wants to leave Roma and even the Italian league. The Giallorossi want at least 10 million in cash for him. An exchange with Viviano is impossible as Roma have chosen to focus on the Dutch keeper Stekelenburg and the vice-Buffon will be under heavy links with Arsenal and Atletico Madrid. So more likely to arrive than Menez is Ricardo Alvarez. According to the British press, the club of Corso Vittorio Emanuele is in pole position for the 23 year-old talent of Velez. The report by the Daily Mail yesterday shows the failure of Arsenal and they claim that Inter could close everything for about 12 million euros. Excessive optimism but the tract for Alvarez is still wide open.

Banega and Casemiro To support the new style of play of Gasp, he needs some help in the midfield. While continuing to work for the Argentine Ever Banega of Valencia, Branca hasn't stopped working on the 19 year-old Casemiro, the Brazilian midfielder of Sao Paulo. There is also the Italian Andrea Poli, 21 year-old midfielder of Samp who was stopped last season with a couple of muscular injuries. Sampdoria are asking 8-10 million.

Lucio to Turkey? Finally, in the defense remains the two doubts of Chivu and Lucio, both are looking for a contract extension. For the Brazilian, he wants a two-year deal while Inter are only offering one. And the rumors of him leaving are not lacking and the last one is coming from Fenerbahce. "We are ready to spend for a central defender with great international experience and Lucio would be great."

Preziosi: "For Palacio it will depend on Pandev."

Mourinho offers the midfielder who has an Italian passport.
To take the winger of Genoa, they have to convince Pandev.

Milan - The hunting of Maicon has started. And of course, Real Madrid have its own radar on the Brazilian. The obsession of Jose Mourinho for the Inter right back doesn't require negotiations anymore but a proposal: Fernando Ruben Gago, central midfielder of Real Madrid, born in '86, has a contract until 2013 and has been a token in any exchange rumors that involve Real Madrid. For the Brazilian, Inter want at least 18-20 million euros.

Italian Meanwhile, the manager of the Brazilian Roberto Calenda (in a press release warns the FIFA agent Antonio Caliendo about speaking of his client) tells Sky: "At this moment, Maicon is Inter's and he is happy to stay at Inter: no negotiation, but certainly the interest of Real Madrid is well known." After an acceleration (Kaka for Maicon, the fruit of that conversation between Mourinho and Leonardo) and a sudden stop, here is the resumption of Real's approaches: Real will provide a midfielder that has an Italian passport, a proposal that Gasperini will need to think about considering that Mariga is likely going to leave and Muntari is not coming back.

Viviano Here are his words of the former Bologna keeper to Ansa: "I have been redeemed by Inter, a very important step in my professional career as a player: I trust Inter completely." In the last hours, there are two developments: The first, Bologna are asking for the loans of Castaignos and Coutinho. The second, determined to make sense of the appreciation of Vucinic, Inter could talk with Roma about Viviano even if the Giallorossi seem much more interested in Stekelenburg. The track to Vucinic will be an expensive one but Inter will continue monitoring the situation of Roma because if Roma can't close the deals for the Dutch keeper, Viviano for Vucinic could actually start.

Palacio, almost Now here is Palacio. The visit to the Inter headquarters by Capozucca not only did not go unnoticed but it clearly was an appetizer for business. The hottest rumor involves Rodrigo Palacio for which Goran Pandev has to decide to leave Inter. That is the biggest obstacle but certainly Genoa and Inter will continue working and tomorrow there should be a new contact between two parties to give concrete follow-up to this possible negotiation.

Poli, Casemiro and Ricky While continuing watching out for Andrea Poli of Sampdoria (value is 10 million), here we are on Casemiro, the midfielder of Sao Paulo. "No negotiations even for him," said his manager Roberto Calenda but it is clear that the current rule which only provides one non-EU spot will limit the deal but Inter have asked for more information about the player." For the Argentinian Ricky Alvarez, Inter continue fighting with Arsenal but this type of player is more and more convinced by Gasperini. His cost is 14 million but it's worth it. Everything is growing.

Arsenal to offer 10 million for Viviano?

01 Jul 11, 05:41


The central defender of Catania as a candidate to replace the Brazilian.
Thiago Motta's agent: "After Inter, Roma are his first choice."

Milan - The story continues and it will continue for a while. Because Lucio and Inter have distant views on the renewal of the Brazilian's contract and both parties will have to sit still for other a month after the end of Copa America. But the signs are not complacent, because Chelsea are seriously thinking of Lucio and Lucio continues to give signs of renewal only on the basis of a two-year and not the 1+1 coming from the Inter.

Looking around So what now? Inter will begin seriously to look around. There is a player who might not have a lot of public attention but he is much appreciated. He is Argentinian and has an Italian passport: Matias Silvestre, a 26 year-old central defender of Catania who grew up in Boca system with whom he won 3 championships, 2 South American Cups and 1 Libertadores. Inter have been keeping an eye on him all season last year and he was instrumental in keeping Catania up by scoring at Brescia and 5 other occasions for the total of 6 goals (4 by head and 1 by the left foot) in 36 appearances.

Already underway? A goal scoring defender, born in '84, who loves to score from corners and free kicks and one that has a contract expiring in June 2012. "Silvestre is a very good player and I won't be surprised to see him soon in a big team," said Pietro Lo Monaco to Radio Kiss Kiss. "Napoli like him but they haven't asked. There are 2 Italian clubs and 2 teams abroad on him. We are already well underway with one of these." Someone whispers that it can be Inter, who is ready to catch an alternative in the event that Lucio doesn't accept the proposed renewal of the renewal and flies to London.

Requests for Chivu The theme of the defense remains for another player whose contract is expiring in 2012 and that is Christian Chivu: some time ago, during a visit to Romania, Massimo Moratti assured that the defender will stay at Inter, but now a British site reports that Liverpool, as they are losing Clichy, are pointing toward Christian Chivu in search of a defensive full-back. Possible operation? Yes as there are interests from Napoli and Valencia.

Motta, Inter or Roma Now, other than the medical visit of Jonathan in a few hours, is a real case and that is the question of Thiago Motta, who spent a year at Genoa with Gasperini but then had to say goodbye with Milito because of the sales to Inter. His manager, Dario Canovi, insists that the player wants to stay at Inter but if the club's unwillingness to confirm him then there would be Roma as his first choice. "Thiago wants to remain in black and blue and Gasperini admires him very much but we will see if Inter will keep him. Thiago is well at Milan but if he leaves, his first choice would be Roma."

CdS: Work underway for Vucinic. Many names can go the other way like Motta, Santon, Viviano, and Pandev.

There's agreement with Genoa: now waiting for the OK from Pandev.
11 million offer to Velez: Arsenal beaten.

Milan - One hand on Rodrigo Palacio, the other on Ricardo Alvarez. Inter yesterday made two important strides to become even more Argentinian. In the morning, technical director Marco Branca had a long and productive talk with the leaders of Genoa as well as the representative of the striker whom Gian Piero Gasperini knows very well. Work is needed throughout the weekend to get the yes from Goran Pandev, the favorite card that Enrico Preziosi wants to be included in the exchange. But despite the Macedonian continuously wants to keep his feet in Palazzo Saras, there is very good optimism on this front.

Can be done In this regard, the president of Genoa Enrico Preziosi sees well. "Convincing Pandev? I understand that leaving Inter for a team that has little ambitions for the Scudetto is difficult, but I think it is better for him to be at Genoa as a starter rather than as reserve, or at most getting a few minutes at Inter. I believe and hope that we will find an agreement."

The thrust Simultaneously Inter director, Branca, is in constant contract with president of Velez Sarsfield, Fernando Raffaini and Ricardo Alvarez's agent, Marcelo Simonian. On Thursday night, the officials of the Argentinian club was reached with a written proposal to purchase the player who is followed also by Arsenal and Roma.

Many bonuses The offer of Inter is very articulate but also convincing. It starts from a base of 5.5 million which must be added a 1 million bonus if Alvarez played 5 games at Inter, another million if he reaches 10 games and another million and a half if he plays 15 matches. In all, 9 million euros. To this we also must add another 25% (15% for the player due to the law in Argentina and 10% of tax) and the total cost is about 12 million.

The difference Fernando Raffaini is trying to buy some time. There are no official statements but Velez are aiming to get about 12 million, plus tax. The latest offer of Inter is a little more than 11 million, a bit higher than that of Arsenal. So with the help of Marcelo Simonian, Inter are on the verge of closing this deal.

Palacio and Viviano Yesterday morning at Palazzo Sares was president Preziosi, Zarbano and sporting director Capozucca with Inter to talk about the terms of Palacio-Pandev exchange. Shortly after, the directors of Inter also met with the representatives of Palacio, Roberto De Pietri and Gabriele Giuffrida. It was not possible to do into details of the deal but Inter have now drawn all the terms and now waiting for Pandev to decide. Now is Viviano. There have also been talks of the interests of Genoa for the Azurri keeper in a co-ownership deal. The consent of the player is needed but this won't be for Palacio

Kucka and Banega Genoa and Inter have also talked about Kucka for 2012 (January or June) and there is also firm conviction that they could also go after Ever Banega, one more Argentinian.

Velez president: "Alvarez is close to Inter."

"I'm not worried about the arrival of Jonathan."
Today Brazil to debut with Venezuela.

Buenos Aires - The roles are reversed. And he shows. Maicon has a sac expression of one who has slipped to the bench to watch Dani Alves: tonight against Venezuela, the Selecao will make its debut and the Inter defender is surrounded by the Brazilian press. A colleague of San Paolo asks him about Jonathan, who is coming to Inter. Maicon's face hardens even more.

Maicon, the manager of Santos defender said that his client will start at Inter while you are going to Madrid.
"I'm not worried about Jonathan and my role within Inter. I am comfortable with the Nerazzurri shirt."

And what about the hypothesis of Real Madrid?
"I'll talk about Inter and Real after Copa America. Now I want to win another major trophy with the Selecao."

How do you intend to regain the starting spot?
"In this national team, I don't feel as a starter or as a reserve. I am one of the 23 available to Mano Menezes."

Double challenge He is nervous. For the present and the future. Maicon would like to start a new phase of his career. The dream is to wear the shirt of Real Madrid and to return working with Mourinho and at the same time challenge Dani Alves for the La Liga. But Fiorentino Perez is not willing to spend 20 million on a defender. At most, he could accept an exchange with Gago. In short the deal is stalled. And Maicon, for environmental reasons, can not be passionate about the idea of moving to Manchester and be at the service of Mancini. The Copa America may be a good springboard for him to regain visibility and to convince the president of Real that a fullback can be very important.

Desire But how can he steal back the place of Dani Alves? The fullback of Barcelona offers jokes and smiles continuously. Who will come between Sanchez and Neymar? Dani has his favorite: "If I have a lot of money, I would by Neymar. He is a phenomenon and is a unique talent in the world. I would love to have him as a teammate at Barcelona. He would be perfect for the schemes of Guariola." And what about Sanchez? The defender also has nice words for the Chilean: "He is a great player. I know there is a negotiation in progress. He too would be a good buy." But for him and his eyes, Neymar is on another planet. Dani also gives some props to Maicon ("he is a very good player and in some aspects, even better than me") but lastly, he talks a little bit about another Inter player, captain Lucio: "He is a model for anyone who is coming to the game of football. One day I will tell my children that I had the honor of playing in the Selecao with a giant named Lucio."



He's a handyman with clear ideas. Inspired by Zidane.
As a child, the talent of Velez was discarded because he couldn't grow. Just like Messi...

An aficionado of the old Tribuna Nord (North Stand) in the Jose Amalfitani, home of the Argentinian Clausura champion Velez, perfectly describes Ricky Alvarez: "He is one of those players that when he has the ball, you hope for a monumental play. For him, it is worth coming to the stadium." Inter fans get ready.

Crack In Argentina, the 23 year-old talented player of Velez is considered a crack. Compared to other players, he exploded a little late, but only because in 2008, a few weeks after he made his debut in Primera Division, Alvarez's cruciate ligament was torn, combined with a subsequent strain, he was out of the game for about year. Since his return to be a full-time player, he always seems to have something more and Inter have had its eyes on him (also because he has an Italian passport, which is not bad).

Multipurpose The enigma of Ricky Alvarez is primarily the role. Simply because he is multifunctional. Left-footed but almost ambidextrous, born as a central trequartista or on the left, but with Velez, he has played virtually in all the positions in the midfield as well as a trequartista: left or right wing, but also as central midfielder. Indeed, all of this are his natural position according to Ricardo Gareca, the coach of Velez who only had one regret: does not permit development in a defined role, because it was necessary for him to play wherever the team needed him to. At Inter, they could make him a winger. He is not fast per se but he has great technique in hiding the ball and in addition to his height (188 cm) and weight (84 kg) which allow him to move with force: a Pastore with less agile but more physical, in other words. In comparison to the Rosanero talent, Ricky scores less (5 goals in 49 games) but he is a bigger winner because he has won two Argentinian championships (one in 2009 by defeating Huracan in the very last matchday).

Like Messi The idols of Alvarez will further explain his style of football: Zinedine Zidane and Juan Roman Riquelme. But there is something that assimilates him to Leo Messi. Alvarez spent seven years in the youth team of Boca, but they never played him: because he was just a little child who developed late just like the champion of Barca. So, he moved to Velez and became one of its key players. In his home in Buenos Aires, he exposed the shirt with the white V to his parent, a shirt where he swore against Independiente on June 8, 2008. But now he wants Europe: "It would be a dream. What would it be like to be in front of Maicon who is chasing you?" he confessed once. And who would face him every day in training?


The Gunners to go up to 12 million but he prefers the Nerazzurri.

Buenos Aires - Arsenal will raise. Two million more than the last offer of Inter. A blitz that Raffaini, Velez president, really likes. He was on a sports radio station in Buenos Aires with this message: "I can confirm that Alvarez is in great demand. And the team will sell. For the moment, I have received offers from Inter, Roma and Arsenal. There are many who want the Argentinian Kaka and they are right. This talent is destined to become, within a few years, a star of European football."

The price goes up Raffaini is trying to raise the price. A complicated operation for one reason: Ricky Alvarez has chosen Inter. And, for the moment, is not willing to speak with management of other clubs. The player, through his manager, has explained to the Nerazzurri, for a few days, that he feels morally bound to the club of Moratti. But the directors of the Nerazzurri have to be hurry, and maybe raise one million in its final offer (which is around 10 million euros). Plus some bonuses linked to appearances on the field. In fact, tomorrow, Moratti's men will have a decisive encounter with the player to persuade him to land in Milan.

Zamparini: "Go to Inter" Alvarez is one step away from Inter is also confirmed by Maurizio Zamparini. One that discovered the talent of Ricky several months ago. The Palermo president spoke to Sky and he was clear: "Alvarez will go to Inter. This amazing talent that we have missed for less than half of what Inter will pay. My staff has made a serious mistake." Things happen in the pit of the transfer market. By the way, a curiosity: Inter have asked the Argentinians in the national team to keep an open contact with Alvarez to avoid disturbing the inclusion of other teams. But the disastrous debut in Copa America by the Seleccion has dropped this option. Zanetti and company have many other problems in mind to become Inter's own sporting directors. But it is just a matter of time. And Gasperini's Inter will become even more Argentinian.



The blitz in Argentina also for the winger of River and Banega.
Tomorrow meeting for the Genoa player but the Pandev obstacle remains.

Milan - Inter and Genoa will be back tomorrow to talk about Palacio. That meeting will probably be here, in Milan, hoping to find agreement with Pandev and move him to Liguria. An agreement, however, seems more difficult than expected and that is why the Nerazzurri are pressing in Argentina for Erik Lamela, born in '92, of River Plate who has an EU passport. In short, if the deal for Palacio doesn't go through, Inter will replace him with the signing of Lamela. And right now, the young trequartista (or winger) seems surprisingly in pole position.

Summit We start in Italy as tomorrow the two clubs will try to accelerate the operation Pandev-Palacio. The visit of Preziosi to Inter headquarters last Friday means that almost everything is stabilized as the Nerazzurri believed that it can convince Pandev. But in all of this, there is a but: in the last hour there was a rumor that Pandev is not even closed to accept moving to Genoa and his no could stop negotiations for the arrival of Palacio. And, in that case, the leaders of Inter, who are staying in Argentina until mid-week, will decide on Lamela, a player that half the world would like to have.

Decisive hours This idea started for the talented player of River Plate was to implement a pre-agreement with the Argentinian club as Inter are waiting to see any move by Chelsea or Manchester United for Sneijder. The complications that have filled the situation of Palacio and Pandev mean that the club has chosen Lamela as the true alternative for Palacio. Certainly the next few hours will be decisive. Meanwhile the idea of Hazard has reappeared again (source is L'Equipe).

Reduced price? Chapter Banega: Inter's management will also meet with Banega who is waiting for an EU passport. With Valencia, however, an agreement could certainly be found and the transaction could close at about 9 million.

Kucka Meanwhile, a look at 2012. According to an indiscretion from Genoa it is certain: in January or June of next year, Jurai Kucka will be, in all effect, at Inter. Preziosi has spoken about his preference is Inter but the derby with Milan doesn't exist because dealing with Moratti seems pretty obvious.

Sport mediaset says that it's all done for Alvarez. The cost is 13 million and 700 thousand euros.

Yes from Velez: today Moratti is waiting for the same from the playmaker.
The mission in Buenos Aires comes alive: the player is attracted to ArgentInter.
Pressing for Banega. And Ferguson admits: "Sneijder is in my plans."



Milan - Today is the day of Ricardo Gabriel Alvarez. Out or in, Inter or Arsenal. The Nerazzurri are the favorite, but you will only know for sure later in the evening, perhaps even the night between Monday and Tuesday because the meeting between Inter, Velez and the player is set in the afternoon in Buenos Aires. The last words of Alvarez will come today although his agent, Marcelo Simonian, is more open to the Nerazzurri as a preferred destination.

The lunge Inter have stuck firmly to its decision because the club considers Alvarez as a safe investment, a young man who is growing slowly which can also coexist with Sneijder who has many clubs on his track and one of them is Manchester United (Ferguson admitted: "Sneijder is in the plans of Manchester United."). And also because not only Alvarez can play as attacking midfielder, he can play as winger so he is a player that could allow Gasperini to be flexible on his different tactical solutions. Inter have reached an agreement with Velez for just over 11 million euros (plus tax) although there is an equally concrete proposal, and according to some sources even higher, from Arsenal. But it is clear that Inter are not doing bidding war. Now it's up to Alvarez to decide and Inter are waiting confidently for this talented Argentinian. How can an Argentinian prefer Arsenal when there is a group with so many of his countrymen who speak the same language and could help him settle to European football? It is not difficult to imagine that in these last hours, Alvarez has spoken to Inter captain Javier Zanetti on the phone, who, in some cases, can be very persuasive.

The preparation It's certain, however, that in these days, by his side is a trainer who is helping him training individually: if everything is successful and going as planned, he will arrive in Pinzolo on July 10 and ready to work with Gasperini. Recalling that the Argentinian Apertura tournament ended a few weeks ago, so his vacation would be really short.

Banega But Alvarez could not be the only player represented by Marcelo Simonian to wear the Nerazzurri shirt. For Ever Banega, important steps have already taken with Valencia but right now the priority for Inter is to negotiation for Alvarez: after closing this front, the transfer market men of Inter will go to Valencia from Argentina where the purchase of the other Argentinian could arrive and Banega would be very useful for Gasperini's new midfield.

Third option Finally, there is the chapter of Lamela. The star of the newly regulated River Plate is also in the view of Roma while the club of Moratti is looking at him as an alternative to Alvarez and Palacio whose negotiations are much complicated with Genoa because of Pandev. So the countdown has begun. And much of it will depend on Alvarez.

05 Jul 11, 07:46


Negotiations OK. To Velez is 12 million. And now Benega.



More and more like Argentina. And now Banega.
Signature came in the night: to Velez is 12 milion, to the player is a five-year deal.
Meanwhile, Arsenal want Thiago Motta.

Ricky "Maravilla" is practically an Inter player. During the night in Argentina, the signature of Ricardo Gabriel Alvarez arrived. The Argentinian was born in '88 and was chased by half of the world. With a blitz of the Nerazzurri which had its directors spending 4 days in Argentina, the Argent-Inter is more and more taking shape. Ricky Alvarez (trequartista, but also a winger) will arrive in Milan in the next few days as he has signed a five-year contract and will make around 1.8 million euros a year. He will also bring with him his talent, a deadly left foot, his versatility and an EU passport.

Visit with an announcement For Ricky Alvarez, Inter have always been the first to move. During the last hours, there was also Roma who tried the last final assault but they were beaten. Like Arsenal, who also had the yes from Velez president Raffaini (and a lot of charm on the boy) but they were stopped at the will of the player as he is more attracted to an Argent-Inter. On Sunday night, the club has reached full agreement with the player's agent, Simonian, and Velez. Then, last night, the closing came after finding out that the boy is happy to be able to choose a team with a lot of... Albiceleste. Inter were present yesterday at the headquarters of the Argentinian national team to greet Zanetti, Cambiasso, Samuel and Milito. Obviously the name of Alvarez was at some point mentioned but perhaps the talk was also about someone else... Banega.

12 million of good reasons Ricky "Maravilla" Alvarez will come to Inter thanks to a very detailed payment: a fixed 5.7 million euros. With that, Inter have promised one million to Velez Sarsfield for the first five games played by the talented Argentinian in the Inter shirt, then another one million for the first 10, then a further one and a half million for game number 15. The total reaches to 9.2 million, a figure which must be added a friendly value of 300 thousand euros and added another 2 million and 250 thousand euros as Inter will take on the 25% divided between the player (10%) and taxes (15%). Total: 12 million, Inter are hoping for good reasons, that Ricardo Alvarez, or Ricardito as he is known in Argentina, will wear the Nerazzurri shirt.

Banega and the replacement Obviously though, this is not going to stop here because the agent of Ricardo Alvarez is also the agent of Ever Banega, the quality midfielder that Inter have been following for a long time. The offer to Valencia is 9 million and among other things, Valencia have bought his replacement in Parejo from Getafe for 6 million euros. Banega could also come to cover the only box available for the non-EU player.

Slowing down for Palacio Next is for Rodrigo Palacio. Yesterday, only telephone contacts were established and don't be surprised if today and tomorrow, there won't be anything. Inter will continue its road to convince Goran Pandev but as hours going by, this task is getting harder. Here will, perhaps come another technical counterpart which will be included for Palacio. The turning point could arrive before the weekend, one way or another.

Motta-Arsenal Lastly, watch out for the noises coming from England. Because if Sir Alex Ferguson has not certainly lost hope of being able to bring in the Dutch Wesley Sneijder to the Red Devils, here is another team from England, Arsenal, who are insisting on Thiago Motta. Inter will listen and evaluate including the will of Gasperini. Mariga is liked by Napoli and vice versa. Everything is in the making as more and more Argentinians are coming.

Vidal linked to Inter (and Napoli and Juve)

08 Jul 11, 06:46


After Ferguson, now the sheikhs of Spain.
Within days, face to face between Inter and the Dutch.

It is not going to stop here... Because with Sneijder, you have to be on your toes when he plays on the field as well as during the transfer season. And the fact is that these rumors are increasing more and more which is not a good sign for a permanent stay at Inter.

Dinner After the rumors of Manchester United who would be willing to offer 39 million euros for the Dutch, here comes the sheikhs of Malaga who are ready to launch a mega offer of 35 million plus bonuses to become... the Manchester City of Spain. Yesterday evening there was a dinner between Soren Lerby, Sneijder's manager, and Al Thani. Watch out for this because if it is true that if Sneijder wants to leave and he would prefer Sir Alex Ferguson but it is also true that the millions can also make things happen.

Face to face and voices Inter are waiting and most importantly they will listen. Technical director Marco Branca have heard and spoken with Soren Lerby several times. Of course Inter will want to understand the player's true intentions and will of whether or not he wants to stay or changes the scenery. This is why at the beginning of next week, there will be a face to face meeting between Inter management and Wesley, a decisive meeting certainly. Wes would find Manuel Pellegrini again, the coach in that difficult season at Real Madrid.

Vidal returns Now the chapter midfield. The emissaries have came back from Sao Paolo and they are thinking of his status as a non EU player (even if Inter have 2 available spots) in spite of the quality of the Brazilian. The status of Ever Banega, who is not convincing at Copa America but always appreciated by Inter, should change soon because he is waiting for a Spanish passport. For Inter, his value is no more than 9 million. So here comes the voices of Arturo Vidal. His contract expires in 2012 and he is strongly followed by Napoli and Juventus. inter have also liked him for some time now and the request of Bayer Leverkusan of 10 million is very affordable.

09 Jul 11, 06:20


The Inter trequartista is linked to United and Malaga: decide on Tuesday.
Sneijder presses Inter but who knows if he will stay.
He is the model for the Nerazzurri while Manchester United and Malaga are pressing.
Monday or Tuesday, a face-to-face meeting with the team. And Eto'o reassures Moratti.

Sneijder is a great player but he could also be a great player for Ferguson and Pellegrini. Wesley Sneijder is liked by Manchester United and Malaga and Wes, on Monday or Tuesday, will meet the team to clarify what he wants to do: leave or stay. The feeling right now? Likely to leave than staying, even on the basis of that "only God knows what would happen," as he officially announced a few weeks ago.

Not surprised Sneijder's agent said that for now there is nothing concrete. For now. "It's not strange that the name of Wesley Sneijder is mentioned with big moves to the English teams. But I think for the big clubs, it is still early to act definitively. But I can say now is that Wes has a contract with Inter until 2015 and that currently there is nothing concrete." In short, anything can happen.

Posed long ago The torment will continue although the genius of the Dutch national team presented the Inter new shirt with his usual number 10. But? But those poses were made weeks and weeks ago, when the battleships of Ferguson and Malaga were not budgeted.

Cash and reflections Behold, now those battleships are there, Inter will look, read and listen. Sneijder is looking more and more of the one who wants to go to England or Spain, a situation will automatically make Inter to reinvest in the transfer market. Ernesto Paolillo said: "First we buy then we sell." The fact is that Inter have already made many purchases (Alvarez, Jonathan, Cataignos, Alborno and have already booked one or two central midfielders) suggests that there will be a major pocket of cash coming in.

Summit to clarify Moral: Wes will join the team tomorrow and he will live these upcoming days waiting to clear things up with the club. Because, as previously stated, Manchester United would be willing to drop 39 million euros after the disappointments related to Nasri and Sanchez not coming. Then there is also Malaga of Al Thani who has a lot of money and ready to add Sneijder to the team of Manuel Pellegrini. Wes loves Inter and Inter know how Wes is: the rest will be decided in a face-to-face meeting earlier this week with Inter.

And Eto'o Meanwhile, yesterday morning, Samuel Eto'o visited president Moratti. A sound of alarm? No, don't think so. The two chatted amiably even about that famous interview on television in Cameroon where the Lion King spoke of the Premier League. Eto'o wants to stay and extends his contract with Inter.



Close between the Italian midfielder and the Bianconeri which pushes them away from the Chile international: Nerazzurri in advantage.

Juve-Inter or Inter-Juve Lately it's been like this: elsewhere and in the transfer market. For example, there is a duel between the two teams for Arturo Arasmo Vidal Pardo, Vidal for everyone. He is the goalscoring midfielder of Bayer Leverkusen and also has an expiring contract in 2012 and is enticed by many. Or there is also Andrea Poli, Sampdoria midfielder who, at one time, was followed by Inter but now there's also Juve to embrace him.

Vidal, Inter forward So Juve on Poli? The result of that is Inter would be much more ahead of Juve on Vidal who has already scored in Copa America. Sources from Chile suggest that Inter are going strong for the player dealing with the same agent of Sanchez (Felicevich) on the basis of 10 million euros. Bayer Leverkusen are asking for 15 million and a few days ago rejected a 12 million offer from Bayern Munich because of a low figure but also because they don't want to give him up to a Bundesliga team. Arturo Vidal has an EU passport and Inter have been following him for some time: a quality midfielder with many goals (10 last season). The Chilean is a perfect player for a midfield of three man but also with a partner in the central midfield. Inter, in respect to Juve, have one big advantage: the Champions League.

Holland, Banega, Mariga Juve certainly will not just give him up because they see Vidal as an excellent complement to Pirlo. Moreover, Inter, other than Vidal, are also thinking about Casemiro and Banega and for the Argentinian, there may be an offer of 2 million for loan and 6 million for full purchase. Inter also must decide what to do with Muntari and Mariga. The Ghanaian is wanted at Galatasaray while for the Kenyan, there is the light trail of Aston Villa. What about Palacio? Always at stand-by waiting for a key piece in a possible exchange deal which could be Pandev or Viviano. The last news coming from Holland is that Inter are interested in Van der Wiel.

The saga of Wesley Sneijder continues and unless changes happen last minute, there is a scheduled meeting today to clarify the situation: Sneijder and technical director Marco Branca will be at a table discussing what could and would happen. Discussion will be about Inter and motivations, will and demands, proposals and assumptions: the words said by the Dutch to the Gazzetta ("Only God knows if I will stay") and even the latest (even though not very recent) that got published in Vanity Fair: "I don't like leaving Inter, but if the team decides to sell then I will go."

Want to stay Malaga certainly have tried. And of course there is Manchester United of Sir Alex Ferguson which will go at it at any moment. In this interview with Vanity Fair and during his visit to Los Angeles, Sneijder and Yolanthe confess. Firstly, Wes said: "I want to stay at Inter. Of course, if the club decides to sell then I will go. But I would not like it because I would miss Inter and the city of Milan very much. But football is like this: when I was transferred to Inter from Real Madrid, I would have preferred to stay in Spain. In ten minutes that day, our lives changed with a phone call." And Yolanthe agreed: "And in six hours, we found ourselves at Principe di Savoia in Milan." Sneijder added: "I want to stay because I have wonderful teammates such as Zanetti who has an extraordinary character and Nagatomi is very nice. At Inter, there is an environment of friendship which makes me feel at home." And what if the end it's Manchester? "I've never been there," Yolanthe said. "If we are going to move there, please inform me."

Gary calls So Inter and Wes will talk without pushing to divide each other and wait to clarify everything and to understand what the requests will be. Meanwhile the former Manchester United defender said: "Sneijder is a great player. He has intelligence to play in areas which have most difficulty. He can score goals and knows how to help others. He would be a great buy and I hope that Man Utd would be able to get him."

Casemiro and Banega Here are the movements in the midfield: the road leading to Vidal is frozen for now so those are leading to Casemiro and Ever Banega remain. The idea is that one of the two would arrive but it is also possible that, with Muntari being linked to Galatasaray or Real Sociedad and for Mariga there is Aston Villa, Inter would might as well get them both. There is still time until August 31 and now the priority to resolve is called Wesley Sneijder.



New arrival: The Brazilian will complete his medical and will go to training camp.

Milan - Jonathan Cicero Moreira, the vice Maicon or the next Maicon, landed at Malpensa at 14:55 yesterday with zero words, an iPod headphone around his neck, chewing gum to seal the silence and got on his way for the first part of the medical. The rest of it will take play in the morning today and by this afternoon, the Brazilian will be at Pinzolo. He is the first purchase of Gasperini's new Inter and the cost is around 5 million: as a starter or not, it will depend on Maicon.

Ricky, Wes and Facchetti Meanwhile, here are the words from Inter captain. "I have spoken with Gasperini and he is very excited because he knows that this is a great opportunity, not only for him but also for us. Alvarez? I have asked some of his friends about how his life is and they told me that at Velez, he was the guy who made sacrifices to get to the first team. He can play as a central midfielder as well as winger. He is like Kaka at the beginning when he was at Milan and he was devastating. Sneijder? I hope he stays. No one wants him to leave Inter then it is clear that he will decide." And the inevitably words on Inter icon Facchetti: "Honestly, it seems incredible to me what is going on. I can only say one thing. I know Moratti every well and I also had the good fortune to know Facchetti as well and that is enough for me."


As I was ready to post this, the power went out. Went to bed and just woke up.

Offer from Inter for the Sao Paolo midfielder.
United are looking for an agreement with the Dutch.

Milan - In Manchester, all the talks are about Sneijder going to United. And the British media continues pressing on this issue. And yet, the champion of England has not yet made contact with Inter. So where is the truth? Well, as always, it lies somewhere in the middle. The British directors are in constant contact with Soren Lerby, the agent of the Dutch international. For Inter, the club continues making moves because they don't want to end up unprepared. During these days, the club of Massimo Moratti has made new progress for a talented player who has been in their view for such a long time: Casemiro, the 19 year-old star of Brazil Under 20 and Sao Paolo.

Predestined Casemiro has been one of the most important protagonists of Sao Paolo. So he continues to demonstrate his value, proving that he has the personality to handle a big jump. According to rumors of a Brazilian source which states that technical director Marco Branca has sent an offer of 14 million. A figure that can certainly convince Sao Paolo. For Casemiro, the Brazilian has expressed his will in a recent television interview: "It's Inter my most preferred team in Italy." The investment of Casemiro, in fact, is related to the possible transfer of Sneijder. And that says a lot about the current situation at Inter. The rumors from England yesterday afternoon were given by The Sun who spoke of an imminent agreement between United and Inter for the Dutch. Inter speeding up the process is also related to the blitz of David Gill in Italy. But with a closer inspection the director of United at this point is in talks with Lerby for economic understanding with the player. Once the parties past this obstacle, United will have to talk to Inter.

Genoa on Viviano Yesterday, meanwhile, there was new contact with Genoa for Emiliano Viviano. The Rossoblu are interested in a loan deal but Inter are insisting on a co-ownership deal. But it is clear that Preziosi will not make any transfer before selling Eduardo. In any case, the two clubs are back and talking after some harsh words of Preziosi regarding the signing of Juric which also have stopped the Palacio deal. So Viviano can serve as a bridge to resume the relationships between the two clubs of Moratti and Preziosi.

Departures Sulley Muntari is still reflecting after the recent meeting with Branca who has proposed two options: Real Sociedad and Galatasaray. Meanwhile, yesterday, Federcio Pastorello, Mariga's agent, met with the leaders of Aston Villa to explore the proposals from the English club. It is no secret that Inter's future moves will depend on the success of sales.

Casemiro's agent is in Milan and Sao Paolo president says that it is going to take 20 million to get him.

The Argentinian is ready if Sneijder or Pandev leaves. Stankovic: "And I would bet that Wes will stay."

Milan - All true. As mentioned yesterday, there is a derby for Casemiro. This is confirmed by Preziosi after a dinner with Adriano Galliani and the same Preziosi also has Inter's main alternative if one of Sneijder and Pandev leaves: and for Gasperini, he has always been Palacio.

Because Palacio Let be clear: The road to the ponytailed Argentina is not easy and it will not happen quickly but he is the favorite in the technical point of view and as well as tactical. Also because his cost would fit well with Financial Fair play rules and regulations. Obviously, then that Palacio would come only if one leaves. Sneijder is one of the candidates because Man United are still thinking about him even if Stankovic is betting that "in a few days, he will stay that he is staying at Inter." In short, despite frozen deals and denials: there are five men who are at the center of the transfer market.

Casemiro: I want Inter As mentioned above, for Casemiro, there is a lot of Inter but there is Milan also which is in alliance with Genoa. "Casemiro is a complicated situation and I would not rule out anything because it is very complicated," said Enrico Preziosi. "Yes, I spoke about him with Galliani at dinner. He has an incredible talent but at the moment there's more fiction than anything else." The fact is that Inter are in front of the line as the same Casemiro has also said recently that: "I like Inter and if I get to go playing in Europe, the Nerazzurri would be my first choice." Now the other half, there is Milan but it is clear that the Brazilian midfielder, born in 92, could become a replacement for Muntari or Mariga, two suspects to leave Inter.

Banega, only loan There is also Ever Banega to replace Muntari and Mariga. The manager is the same as Ricky Alvarez and during the deal for the "Maravilla", there is only one option: if (and only if), Valencia would release him on a loan deal (with right to purchase), he would wear the Nerazzurri shirt. It would be better if Banega has his Spanish passport which he has been waiting for for months.

Pandev why? Now, back to the topic that involves Palacio and Pandev or Sneijder: "I can not imagine that a player, even if it's Pandev, would have concerns where all the players have been fine. The contracts of Inter are different from ours and this has created trouble in the mind of Palacio."

3 million difference Apart from the obvious reference to a possible adjustment of his salary in the event that he remains at Genoa, the talks of Palacio-Pandev-Inter are also blocked on one more thing: his value. And that's where the words of Inter technical director Marco Branca come in: "If there is a difference on the values, then we can not start talking with the player." And the difference for Palacio, to date, is at 3 million. Goran was also asked by Napoli but the fact remains that today, with the sale of him or Sneijder, there's only one substitute: Palacio, the Chosen One.

Sneijder's dad: "We are aware of Manchester United's interests but he is happy and has a big contract at Inter. The club will decide."

Contact in Sardinia. More of a coincidence than anything else but from here to the end of August...

Milan - Contact? Handshake? Done or not done? Each of these could be a good headline for a picture like that. Staying in a hotel near Porto Cervo, the Inter technical director politely shook hands his wife first and then Tevez himself. Tevez to Inter? For now there are no bases but you never know the transfer market. There are also too many obstacles, mazes and conditions which should coincide to create a deal like that. Does this worth a headline? Yes but anything further has no support as well as it is too weak fundamentally. Also Inter have also decided to cut costs in view of FFP and a player, who will earn 7 millions a year, does not meed the overall needs of the club.

Interesting vacation The curious scene took place under the sun in Sardinia and in the hotel Pitrizza where, before Carlitos Tevez, top players like Iniesta, Pazzini or Torres spent their holidays. The Manchester City striker (for now), after the collapse of a potential move to Corinthians, arrived on the island and the hotel on Tuesday night and yesterday, he spent his time on the beach with his women and child. At that point, here came the Inter technical director Marco Branca who approached to greet and then to enjoy his holiday. Holiday of transfer market? For now it is just a holiday and then we'll see but Inter do not need new players in its attacking department.

Big salary In this regard, we recall precisely what Branca said in an interview with the BBC: "Tevez is a top player but no, there is no interest in him. His salary, among other things, is beyond any discussion. We must manage our team from the perspective of the FFP and that is we will look for young players who can grow." That was June 22, a month ago. And since then, the scenario hasn't changed.

Apparently Milan are flying to Brazil for Casemiro. Inter are still considered favorite.

In the midfield, if Mariga and Muntari leave, the main objectives remain Casemiro and Banega.
Viviano is negotiation with Bayer.

Milan - The transfer market for Inter, these days, are only taking off in the direction of South America. Gasperini wants to change it up a little bit in the midfield and the team is focusing on the intercontinental targets: dealing for the Brazilian Casemiro and Argentininan Banega remains concrete but the new name is the Colombian Fredy Guarin. Anyone who follows Porto knows him: he wears the number 6 and has great physique and uses his cannon to shoot from the outside. Last year, he scored 5 goals in the league and 5 in the Europa League a tournament which he played in the final against Braga and won. With Colombia at Copa America however, he only reached the quarterfinal match against Peru. Guarin is non-EU but he is included in the shopping list of Moratti. The cost is between 8 to 10 millions just like Ever Banega who yesterday wrote on Twitter that "I will stay at Valencia. I'm happy." Two players will arrive in the midfield when Muntari (Real Sociedad is a concrete hypothesis) and Mariga (Aston Villa and West Brom) leave. There is also Casemiro for which Inter are always the favorite.

Leaving The feeling is that much will be known after the Italian Super Cup on August 6. First is the news coming from inside the team: Branca has found an agreement with Sandro Becker, Lucio's agent. It will be formalized August 7. The Brazilian has an expiring contract in 2012 but he will be renewed until 2014. Lucio, who is happy to stay at Inter, will continue the 2012-2013 on his current salary but in 2013-2014 it will be lower but the bonuses will be increased. For the Italians, Viviano and Bardi are also leaving. For the Azzurri goalkeeper, he is going ahead with Leverkusen while his heir for the U-21 should go on loan to Gubbio after his experience in Beijing.

Others About the young defender Felice Natalino and striker Denis Alibec, both could take a new journey together to Verona. Meanwhile, Inter have taken a player from Roma, champion of Italy (Primavera): he is Gianmarco Falasca, a midfielder born in '93 who the Giallorossi released. It is not a coincidence that at Roma in 2010, he won the league and his coach was Stramaccioni who three weeks ago became a coach of Primavera Inter.

From England: Meeting with Manchester City officials later this month for Tevez. He could come to Inter on loan with an option to buy.

26 Jul 11, 05:12


Milan - Enrico Preziosi has been talking about Don Rodrigo for the last eight months including chases from Europe as well as ambushes in South America. It seems like an action movie but it is almost like a love story. "Rodrigo Palacio is one of those players that make us fall in love. And we, at the end, can be together forever," said president of Genoa two summers ago. So he bought Palacio for 6 million more or less but this time, there is Inter. "Palacio is not going away without another player in exchange," he told Sky Sport 24 yesterday as he is trying to force a possible swap. So this is what Inter and Genoa are doing who yesterday spoke about the deal and made some progress. How will this end? Nothing has been decided yet and both will meet again tomorrow.

The counterparts Pandev is logically still a suspect so much so that both sides, in the past, had come to an agreement for the Macedonian. The number 27, however, didn't really value the Rossoblu as a next destination and Preziosi did not like it: "I won't take anyone who does not want to come. Genoa must be an honor." The complication is that in Genoa, there are three new central strikers that without the experience in Serie A in Ze Eduardo, Pratto and Ribas. The Argentinian will only be sold if there is a warranty in Preziosi's hands: one of Gilardino or Amauri so to speak. At that point, Inter can go ahead and move forward for Palacio who has an EU passport and in return there could be Castaignos, the player that has a lot of interest from Genoa even more than Mariga. "I want to stay in this shirt even though I know that I have a lot ot learn," said Castaignos.

Sales Regarding the potential sales, yesterday Preziosi also spoke of Viviano: "We had made some effort with Inter but what happened has happened and I'm sorry for the injury." It is clear that the goalkeeper will stay at least until January perhaps along with Sneijder or maybe not. David Beckham yesterday gave Sneijder a shirt (virtually) of United by saying that he is a "very talented player who would do well in Manchester." Pending developments ( and offers), Inter are going to focus on the midfield. Gago would be difficult because he doesn't have the characteristics that suit Gasperini and his agent said that he wants to return to Boca. For Muntari, it is very interesting that the president of Real Sociedad speaks freely of him: "His arrival is possible but not easy. With Inter, we can reach an agreement but then we must have the OK from the player." In the language of the transfer market, it is free to interpretation: Inter have already said yes now they must explain to Sulley Muntari that Real Sociedad have its own charm and fascination.

Pandev's agent: "He is staying for sure. He has no intention of leaving and at the same time wants to convince Gasperini."

27 Jul 11, 08:41


Branca, according to the South American media, has met with the agent of the forward.

For Argentina, Tevez is very close to Inter as they are speculating on the last meeting that took place a few days ago in Sardinia between the City striker and Inter technical director Marco Branca. "After the final of the Copa America, there was contact between the representative of Tevez, Adrian Ruocco, and Branca. Two sides are very close," revealed Olé.

Inter front From Milan, there are denials. Branca has repeatedly explained that Tevez is a top player but unattainable by Inter. Let's disregarding the crowded attacking department of Inter, he would be very expensive: Manchester City want 55 million euros (but 45 perhaps would be enough) and the player would take in about 10 million in salary. It is a little more possible to go with a loan deal with the right to buy.

City front Manchester City are rooting for Inter because it is the only club that has indicated its intention of buying the Argentinian striker. Tevez is considered as a big asset to make some cash because the deal for Aguero would cost around 43 million euros and also the 10 in annual salary. To snatch Nasri from Arsenal, 25 would be needed. Then there are also Cerci and the goalkeeper Sorensen of Stoke City. A mountain of cash is to be recovered with some sales. Both clubs would surely talk more over the weekend during a tournament in Dublin.

CdS is also reporting of a decisive weekend for Tevez this week. Inter are likely to ask for a loan with the right to purchase.

28 Jul 11, 05:54


Pandev insists on saying no to Genoa which can not afford Milito and not convince about Castaignos.
And meanwhile, reopen the deal for Viviano.

Goran Pandev: The 28 year-old Macedonian striker matches Preziosi's identikit but refuses the transfer to Genoa.
Diego Milito: The 32 year-old Argentinian striker was an idol at Genoa but his salary is prohibited for the Rossoblu.
Luc Castaignos: The 19 year-old Dutch doesn't convince Genoa which already have three central forwards with no experience in Serie A.
Emiliano Viviano: He was the perfect pawn for the exchange but he torn the cruciate. To a surprise, Genoa could still be on him.

Milan - The Rossoblu sporing director Stefano Capozucca was in Milan yesterday to talk to Inter or more specifically Marco Branca who then went to Pinetina to inform Gasperini. The reason for this meeting was of course for the 29 year-old Argentinian winger. There was black smoke however because the two parties are still in the same positions in the past few days. Genoa want a compensation technique with certain standards and characteristics, a striker with some experience that can guarantee 10-15 goals per season. For Preziosi, Goran Pandev fits those conditions.

No Milito and Castaignos The Macedonian does not want to move to Genoa and it becomes more and more difficult to find alternatives that Genoa like. Diego Milito would be ideal because he remains an idol for the fans of the Rossoblu. But getting Il Principe seems prohibitive not only because of the transfer fee but also because his salary (5.5 million net per season) when he helped the team of Moratti to win the Champions League in 2010. For very different reasons, Genoa have also discarded the hypothesis of Castaignos. The biggest reason that Castaignos is not being considered is because Genoa already have 3 forwards in Ze Eduardo, Ribas and Pratto, all don't have experience in A and Preziosi can not afford a fourth "bet".

Outside solution So here is, at the moment, the only way to bring Palacio to Inter: Preziosi needs to find a striker that fits his identikit on the transfer market. Proposals of the midfielders can also be dismissed because it is the department where Genoa are well covered. But everything could lead a goalkeeper. In fact, the deal for Viviano is not definitely collapsed. Despite the serious knee injury occured last Saturday, Genoa are still considering the possibility of waiting for him when he is back.

Tevez situation A similar loan like that of Ibrahimovic to Milan is the only solution for Inter to get Tevez. One solution that could work is a loan with right to purchase which is set at acceptable terms. Unthinkable to pay City 50 million and 10 million in salary for the entire card of the player. But Inter know that time could be their ally. Tevez and City are broken and the English club is forced to make some cash back after the signing of Aguero. So sitting by the river might be the right tactic.

The coach of City is pushing his striker to Inter for the arrival of the Cameroonian: a hard negotiation but do not exclude twists.
Samuel says no to 20 million a per from the Russians.



Mancini pushes Tevez to Milan and Eto'o is the key.
Touching Eto'o to force the hands of Moratti.
Meanwhile, the striker said no to the 20 million a per from Anzhi.

Appiano Gentile Tevez to Inter and Eto'o at Manchester City. The possibility of this humongous exchange during the summer is still small but something is cooking and plot twists should not be ruled out before the end of August. The pusher for this move is obviously Roberto Mancini who has broken up with the Apache but he must replace the Argentinian in the best possible way. Inter, who also have done some studies with the entourage of the Argentinian, remain at the window. Eto'o is the center of gravity Interista of Moratti, even before the famous pre-training camp, Moratti has always said that he is not for sale. But at the same time, the president himself, has never made anyone prisoners see the example of Leonardo.

The itches of Eto'o So the ball is therefore more than ever in the hands of Samuel Eto'o. After declaring to his closet friends, at the end of last season, the temptation to leave Italy for England, the Cameroonian would be gladly to stay at the Nerazzurri. As shown in Pinzolo when he reiterated the desire to win again with Inter and signed autographs for the fans. But Eto'o, like all champions, has always dreamed of winning in all three leagues so after La Liga and Serie A, the other top European league is missing: the Premier League. Mancini is crazy about the Cameroonian and the only team that can guarantee an increase in already high salary (we are now at 10.5 million net per season) it is City.

Asking Russians This does not mean that Eto'o, who yesterday left Pinetina avoiding the fans to sign autographs, is looking just for money. Because yesterday his agent Claudio Vigorelli politely rejected a big proposal (something like 20 million to the player and 30-35 million to Inter) from the Russians of Anzhi, the same ones who tried to buy Gattuso. City like him because the club wants to continue climbing up the ladder in Europe and with its economic strength and competitiveness, they hope to convince Eto'o to come and win his fifth Champions League for his career. Eto'o is still connected to the world of Inter. As it was confirmed by a few days ago from the same Vigorelli that Eto'o is very close to Moratti and there is a pact between them. Yesterday, the player wanted to talk to the president of Inter but the meeting was pushed back to take place in Dublin.

Tevez to leave, Inter at window Tevez, about two months ago, said that: "I don't even want to go back to Manchester from vacation." In fact, in Sardinia, he met with Inter technical director. But Tevez will return to Manchester next Thursday after the break post Copa America. The Apache has a market value just slightly lower than Eto'o in both transfer fee and salary but he is three years younger: 27 against 30 of Samu. Inter have great respect for the Argentinian and, despite the circumstances of Branca's words ("I met him once and it was by chance"), have taken a look and done a survey about Tevez. During the meeting with the Russians, there was also Kia Joorabchian, Tevez's agent, who left Inter headquarters shortly after 8 o'clock in the evening. It is true that Tevez would find an Inter team that has a full colony of Argentinians and would fit well with Gasperini's tactics but Samuel Eto'o is the undisputed leader, you win matches but more importantly trophies with him. Right now, thinking of Inter without Eto'o is just fantasy football but two years ago, that same feeling was for Ibrahimovic but then history was made.



Branca: "Towards a signing together with the Rossoblu."

Casemiro So as we are waiting for further developments between Inter and City for Eto'o and Tevez, it is also difficult to reach an agreement in an exchange deal with Genoa for Palacio whom Roma are also very interested in. Yesterday, Inter technical director said: "With Genoa, we did not talk about the Argentinian but about the possibility of buying someone else in the future who would be valuable to both teams." Despite the understandable denial ("No offer for Casemiro or Lucas"), the player in both clubs' view is the 19 year-old talented midfielder of Sao Paulo. With a co-ownership deal, with Casemiro not necessary go to Genoa, would unlock the deal for Palacio. But still watch out for the surprise named Viviano. After damaging his knee, the vice-Buffon still has the interest from Genoa but the Rossoblu could ask the Nerazzurri for a discount.

Just as expected, reports from Russia are saying Eto'o has rejected Anzhi. Meanwhile the agent said: "He doesn't want to leave Inter.

FIFA agent Durante says Inter will take Casemiro, maybe with Genoa. He says the price will be 15-16m€ which is a bargain.

30 Jul 11, 07:10


Moratti to block the move. Tevez? Depends on if Sneijder leaves.
Cameroonian: "I will not go to Russia." The Argentinian is linked to the future of the Dutch.

Milan - Eto'o is not for sale, or almost. But if Tevez comes to Inter, it will depend on the future of Sneijder. Massimo Moratti, who today will be in Dublin to be near the team before leaving for Beijing, could take this opportunity to meet with the leaders of Manchester City. But only under certain conditions like selling Sneijder to Manchester United for no less than 40 million but will not reinvest all on Tevez. That is one scenario but he also could come on loan with a transfer fee and other conditions in favorable terms for Inter. Depiste the words of Mancini ("I would be happy to keep Tevez"), City must get rid of the Argentinian and may also accept the conditions from the Nerazzurri.

Moratti's thought It is very clear that Mancini would prefer an exchange for Samuel Eto'o while Gasperini calms all with "it is normal that there is so much talk of the great champions like Sneijder and Eto'o but Inter can keep them both. Weakening is not part of the history of this club." Moratti's thought was filtered about Eto'o on Thursday night leaving the restaurant where he dined with Zanetti and other players. Eto'o is untouchable, the president explained. He will not sell Eto'o to Anzhi, a club that put on the table an "impressive offer": 35 million to the club and 20 million net per season to the player. Moratti's reasoning is flawless: Eto'o makes you win trophies so you shouldn't put a price on him. And also don't exchange him with Tevez was also his other idea. There is only Sneijder left and Moratti might be thinking that: "Ferguson, give me what I want for Sneijder."

Russia? No thanks Let's go back to the Cameroonian and here are his words directly from Dublin: "I will not go to Russia," explained Eto'o. "Anzhi is not going to play in the Champions League and my goal is to win the Champions League again." Also significant are the words from his agent, Claudio Vigorelli: "Eto'o and Inter have a great relationship. And it is unlikely that Eto'o will change team but there is always the chance that someone makes an offer to Inter and to the player."

Pandev and Napoli So if Tevez arrives, Inter would start to thin the attack. Only a coincidence that yesterday that Carlo Pallavicino, Pandev's agent said "for Goran, Napoli would be a welcome destination." Meanwhile, yesterday the talented Paraguayan Rodrigo Alborno landed in Milan.

01 Aug 11, 05:33


It's time to decide for the Nerazzurri. For Tevez, there is Maicon. Eto'o is negotiating and Casemiro is closer.
Moratti to meet with the Cameroon international whom City like but he could stay with a retouch of the salary.
Sneijder and United: open game.



The chance to see them at Inter in 2011-2012: see above.
For Eto'o, pointing towards a renewal. There is Maicon on the plate for Tevez.
Frantic hours for the president. After the meeting with Mancini, there is another one with the Cameroonian.
Now it is up to Sneijder. Casemiro is close and Lucas for 2012.

Milan - After a month of preliminaries, the Inter transfer market now goes live. In balance there are big names such as Eto'o, Sneijder, Maicon and Sneijder but behind the scene there is also the talent Casemiro. Apart from the commitment in the Italian Super Cup, these business deals are likely to be eventually closed in the second half of August which will inevitably involved European elites. That is the advantage for Inter because some of these figures can only be afford by a few clubs. In this case, the game of musical chairs will be on stage between Inter, Real Madrid, two clubs in Manchester in United and City. These deals have come alive when management of Inter, or more specifically Massimo Moratti, met with Roberto Mancini in Dublin. Mancino has confirmed to Moratti his willingness to sell Tevez and interest in Eto'o. Moratti does not seem willing to consider exchanging Eto'o for Tevez but rather would consider the solution of a loan deal, especially if Sneijder leaves.

Talk between Moratti-Eto'o The unique decisive variable can be a significant adjustment in favor of Inter. At that point should be assessed the availability of the Cameroonian. For this Moratti has taken the opportunity to talk not only to Eto'o but also to Sneijder or with other key players that could come or leave Inter. Eto'o has no ruling against City: the Premier League is his preferred destination if he has to leave Inter due to professional reasons. The same that led him to reject the offer from the Russians of Anzhi. The interest from the Premier League for Eto'o is real and concrete. But it is not difficult to imagine a touch up or an extension of the contract. But can City afford to pay Eto'o 12 million per year? No. The new signing Aguero will not earn more than 9 million a year. That doesn't mean City won't be able to offer a high salary or even a 4-5 year contract. The fact remains that the salary problem is more at Inter than City.

Maicon and Sneijder But Moratti and Mancini have also spoken about Maicon. The Brazilian right back could end up in the middle of a derby between the ex. His agent Roberto Calenda, in fact, has just returned from Brazil with a concrete offer from Mou's Real Madrid: Gago. Inter said no thanks but it is easy that Real will return in the future. The same door may also reopen for the same City. Mancini has great trust in Maicon and he could be included in the business for Tevez. The Argentinian's fate is also tied with the future of Sneijder. If the Dutch were to be sacrificed, Moratti would go for the Apache but only on loan with the right to purchase. For the Dutch, however, United have not made official steps and Ferguson continues to play cat and mouse. Yesterday, in the US, he has denied that coming to United Sneijder would have to reduce economic pretensions. In return, the player who was asked if he will leave Inter he said: "There is always a possibility, in football anything can happen."

Casemiro, Lucas and Palacio Branca and Ausilio are also working on the faces that are less "glamorous". Like Casemiro, the 19 year-old Brazilian midfielder whose arrival is related to the sale of Mariga or Muntari. Yesterday, the vice president of Sao Paulo, Carlos Augusto de Barros, told Calciomercato.it that: "There is no agreement with Inter but it is difficult for us to keep him." A little different for Lucas, another talented player born in '92: "Inter like him but he will not leave Brazil immediately. Chapter Palacio: for the arrival of the Argentinian, Inter could help Genoa to take the 25 year-old striker of Lille Moussa Sow.

Sportmediaset: Branca is in Brazil to close the deal for Casemiro.

03 Aug 11, 07:06


There is also City who on the champion of Inter: Mancini has already spoken with Moratti.
It's the duel with the cousins in Manchester United.
But before he leaves, Wes wants to beat Milan and lift his last trophy.



One derby that leads to another. City-United for him.
Inter are willing to sell. Manchester is waiting for him.

1. Derby in Beijing - The Super Cup with Milan: It is very likely that Sneijder will close his chapter at Inter after the derby against Milan for the Italian Super Cup.

2 Manchester derby - City also want him: Ferguson likes Sneijder and it is no mystery. But now other than United, there is City who also want the Dutch.

Beijing One thing is certain: between Inter and Wesley Sneijder there is something broken and the player was the last to figure it out. The symptoms of illness did not happen yesterday when the arrival in China, Wesley was the most celebrated player among the fans, or on Sunday when he found himself in front of his closest friends, De Jong, in a friendly with Manchester City. The courtship of Manchester's Arabs is more discreet than that of United but they are working in depth mainly because Sneijder has realized that he is not desired, loved, and protected like in the season when he was very happy with Mourinho. With the departure of the Portuguese and the arrivals of Benitez and Leonardo, something has remained unsolved then came Gasperini with his tactical requirements. The impression is that Inter have decided to sell Sneijder to make good money for its budget and for the new project in the midfield. This is where the story is intertwined not only with Manchester United but also with City of Roberto Mancini.

Talks Saturday evening, in a private room in the Four Seasons hotel in Dublin where Inter and City spent a few days with their training camp, Massimo and Mancini spoke not only about Tevez, Eto'o, and Maicon but also Sneijder. This entry from the city rival in City can be viewed as even more concrete than Manchester United. Mancini has decided to push for the move because he understood that the deal for Nasri is likely to be a long negotiation and City need a new trequartista as soon as possible because Chelsea could get on the trail of the Dutch as a third wheel. The talk on Sunday has confirmed one thing to Mancini - who really trusts Wes greatly - the one thing that he wants to hear: Inter are more than willing to sell Sneijder who is recovering from a difficult year. Not only that, we have seen more than one occasions some dissatisfaction even at the start of the season where he viewed his new role as a pure midfielder very challenging. City have a better chance of getting Sneijder compared to United because they can satisfy both Inter (who hope to make at least 35 million euros) and the player. Not to mention that the sale of Sneijder could make it sufficient for Inter to think about the signing of Tevez. But this, as explained by Moratti to Mancini Sunday, in the case must satisfied the conditions at Inter because City can not and do not keep the Argentinian.

Farewell step? Sneijder is the center of attention of Inter when the team landed in China. He was the most sought after by the fans so much so that his jersey is the most popular for the fans in Beijing. The Chinese media also wanted to hear from him. "It is an honor for me to be in China. This is my first time I come to this country. We are here to play a very important game. I am convinced that Inter can do well and I will do everything to make this happen. We're here to win." But the ghost of Wesley (the key man of Nike which on Friday will be "silenced" during the presentation of the away shirt because the player is in a delicate position) hovers even in the press conferences of Gasperini, Ranocchia and Alvarez. "No problem for Sneijder," said the coach to the Chinese. "Wes is here with us. He is training with us and on Sunday he will play for us." Yes, but it could really be the last at Inter. Even yesterday, Sneijder demonstrated his usual grit that he does not want to lose especially to Milan in the game for the Super Cup. His Inter story began with a derby as one of the leaders. And if he really is leaving, that is what Sneijder wants to imagine his goodbye: as a leader with the cup in his hands.

Gago's agent: "He wants Inter. It is his first choice. Gago would find a home there due to the presence of so many Argentinians."

United continue hunting the Dutch of Inter.
Even the old glory of Ferguson focuses on Wesley.

Manchester - The role-play staged by Manchester United in the managing the deal for Sneijder is perfect. Utd coach, Alex Ferguson, said: "Sneijder is a great player but we're not negotiating." The chief executive, David Gill, assures: "To complement our transfer market, we need the last piece of the puzzle and I will talk with Ferguson." Now here comes the latest voice to give his opinion on the situation: "Sneijder is a talent," said Paul Scholes. "He has done very well in recent reasons, with Inter and with the Netherlands. I did not think that he could express himself at this level away from Madrid but he has proven to be a champion. He is my best possible replacement."

Backstage Perfect. But you go back to square one: what will happen with Sneijder? Here, prominence was given to the words of the Dutchman ("The Super Cup could be the last with the Inter shirt") (no idea where they got this quote from) but also those of Gasperini ("Sneijder is training with us and he'll play for us in Beijing"). In Manchester, however, they know very well there is a problem for Sneijder. And it is the will of Inter to sell the player for budgetary reasons and it is also clear that the Dutchman is uncomfortable as he was forced to play as a central midfielder instead of a trequartista. United are looking for a player with those features of Sneijder. Nasri was the first idea then City intervened. So United are now focusing on Sneijder."

Salary One other problem is the salary of Sneijder. It is too high for the parameters of United as he also wants to beat Rooney. Ferguson has asked Sneijder to reduce his claims but the Dutch did not notice. Money, like always.


The Argentinian is still on vacation at his home.
Tevez wants Inter but...

Manchester - From just words to now fact: Carlitos Tevez is not coming back to Manchester. The Argentinian was supposed to show this morning in Carrington for his first training session after the holidays but his vacation has been extended yesterday. So he will remain at his home in Argentina. After the words on July 4 in which Tevez said: "I can not bear longer the separation from my family back in Argentina because in England, I have not been happy." To justify for this delay, it was explained that Tevez would only show up today "if there is a need" but Aguero, another player who participated at the Copa America, has trained for Manchester for a week. The signal is clear: Tevez does not want to return to Manchester.

The scenarios Tevez is trusted greatly by Mansour, the owner of the club. He has one weakness for Argentinian: "I consider Tevez one of the best players in the world. I would not sell him but if he asks to leave then I would no imprison him." Tevez will not be a prisoner of the sheiks but his card is around 45 million euros and he is making 10 million per season. Only Real Madrid and Chelsea can spend these figures but he wants Inter. We must find the formula to make the deal viable. It may be a loan payment but the Argentine and his agent, Kia Joorabchian, want a definitive sale.



The Nerazzurri are between the French and Casemiro, Genoa want Pandev.

Almost everyone is looking for players of substance and Inter are in full force because in the midfield, Inter are looking for two players and one of them could be Casemiro, a bulldozer Brazilian who is 19 years old, weighs about 80 pounds and costs around 20 millions. Inter are flirting with him but Sao Paulo do not want to sell as they prefer to wait for the big teams from England or Spain in January. They also offered him a retouch for his contract but the boy refused because he wants Europe now. Roma were at one time one of his followers but Inter are much more concrete. Cost? You can close right around 20 million. Inter have arrived in the middle and started to negotiate. There is also PSG so they could come in the picture.

Alternative For now, there is Yann M'Vila another midfielder under the view of Inter. He was born in '90 in France with Congolese origins and already has 10 international appearances. He is under contract until 2015 and Rennes are asking 16-17 million for him, a high but understandable figure. Now about Pandev: yesterday Genoa sporting director was at the headquarters of Inter to continue negotiating for Pandev.

According to Sky, Mariga is very close to an agreement with Sociedad. And with his departure, we can really focus on Casemiro because one spot for non-EU will be available.

A done deal, but first Wesley wants to close his Inter experience with another trophy.



To Mancini for 36 million.
And on Monday, the Russians of Anzhi will return for Eto'o: 30 million to Inter, 20 million a year to the player.
Will Moratti extend the contract?

Beijing - A happy story. A little bit less at the end which has been plagued in recent months but so is football and he, himself has said this a few weeks ago: "I love Inter, only God knows my future." But everything has remained uncertain until this latest derby, Wesley Sneijder wants to win it like he did with his first one when he just arrived in Milan. With pride, he will take the field today in Beijing and Gasperini will give him great freedom of movement, even as a trequartista like he has always wanted. Then quickly he will pack his suitcase. Wesley and Inter will end here: the Dutchman is already sold to Manchester City for 36 million and we can not say that this is a surprise. Real Madrid paid 27 million to Ajax for him then Inter got him for 15 million. From the economic point of view, we can say that everyone will live happy because City has assured Sneijder of a richer salary than at Inter (6 million) and Manchester United was not willing to pay.

Last act Leaving for China, Wesley was still showing all the uncertainty of the future, but perhaps hoping for another solution. "I would be happy if he stays. He is a great player and a person with interesting mind but I understand that some figures you can not say no to," confided Bedy Moratti a couple nights ago. A gain in capital is always welcome with the new financial fair play in view. So after the game, Sneijder will go to Amsterdam via Frankfurt. That is where he will be waiting to join his national team, where he returns after a long absence to recover from fatigue after a fantastic 2010, to play a friendly in London. England is where new life is just a step away. Wife Yolanthe has already made arrangements to make movies in Great Britain. The fate of Wesley is moving even if he wanted a place to stop. But perhaps the Chinese fans who broke the security cordon to hold him tight all knew better. The Dutchman was at first startled, then laughed and let himself be embraced. Inter have of course denied any negotiations, saying that he is focused on the Super Cup.

And now Eto'o? On Monday, the Russians of Anzhi will return for Samuel Eto'o. They will be ready to offer Inter 30 million and 20 million in annual salary for the player. It is up to Moratti to decide whether to please the Cameroonian and extend the contract until 2014 or sell him. But the first step was made by Eto'o who yesterday said this on the official website of Inter: "I have never had an altercation with Gasperini. In Pinzolo we talked about tactics and technical matters like normal things between a coach and a player especially when a coach and a player are working together and just getting to know each other." The fact remains that a new face to face meeting with Moratti is inevitable.



The president contacts Preziosi to rip the Slovakian away from Milan and tightens for Palacio. Lucas or Casemiro.

Milan The counterattack from Inter has already started. Even before the official announcement of the sale of Sneijder to City and waiting to decide the future of Samuel Eto'o, Inter president Massimo Moratti has started the campaign to strengthening the team of Gasperni. And, incidentally, he is pointing straight at Genoa. At the center of negotiations with Enrico Preziosi there is Juraj Kucka, the 24 year-old Slovakian midfielder. With him, the Nerazzurri have been dueling with Milan for months. President of the Rossoblu intends to sell only half of his card in order to keep him until the end of the season.

The node But at Inter, Kucka is needed now and they are pushing for this solution. So new alternatives are needed. The issue is complex and also the two clubs, Inter and Genoa, are also dealing with another important issues: the passage of Rodrigo Palacio to Inter in exchange for Goran Pandev and the passage of Viviano to Genoa. Moreover, in this particular derby in the transfer market, it must be remembered that Milan secured El Shaaraway despite the Nerazzurri were the team that asked first for the talent with the Egyptian origin.

Chapter Brazil In parallel, Inter technical director Branca will continue to weave the plot with Sao Paulo for Casemiro and Lucas Silva, the two jewels on which the Nerazzurri have now set their sights on for some time. Sure, it is hard to take them away together. Not so much an economic issue but it is a matter of EU places. Lucas only has a Brazilian passport and therefore Inter can only take on non-EU player and that is it. Of course, all of this are linked to Mariga and Muntari who recently said that he (Muntari) doesn't want to leave.

Tevez There is also the road to Carlitos Tevez, the Argentinian who is now fighting with Manchester City. His feeling for Inter is clear. But it all depends on the choices of Samuel Eto'o and the simultaneous negotiations with the Russians of Anzhi. The Nerazzurri are in favor of a loan and it would be an operation that will maintain a high level in the attacking front.

Inter and Genoa will meet again in the next few days to talk about Palacio and Kucka.

Sky: Inter are in discussion with Genoa to bring Kucka to the Nerazzurri immediately instead of waiting for 2012.

09 Aug 11, 06:10


A change in the air: today Anzhi's management to Milan.
They will offer 60 million for 3 years, the Cameroonian (also in difficulty tactically) is thinking about it but will ask for 4 years.
Tevez, meanwhile, is ready to reduce his salary. There is also Lavezzi and Kucka is coming.



He is cold with Inter. Anzhi return to Milan and the Cameroonian negotiates.
Moratti is not open for a renewal. And today, the Russians will have a new blitz.
They will offer 60 million net for 3 seasons, he wants one more year.

Milan - The future of Samuel Eto'o would be more clear in 48 hours. Today, Anzhi management will be in Milan to start negotiations formally with the Cameroonian striker and with the Nerazzurri. On the table there is a lot of money for every one and what seemed a remote possibility a couple weeks ago now may have some foundations. Everything can be decided very quickly even in 48 hours. He wants to play at the top level with a competitive team but then in Dublin, something was broken with Inter.

Face to face Samuel Eto'o, after the match against Manchester City in Dublin, talked at length with president Massimo Moratti but did not receive the feedback that he was waiting for. The Cameroonian (under contract for another two years with Inter) would love to have an extension for at least another season. Or alternatively, new incentives for future like a significant bonus. But this did not happen: the number one of Inter did not promise this. Eto'o did not take it well and not only that with Gasperini he is having some tactical difficulties as he is being used more as a winger rather than a central striker. In short, the relationships between Inter and Eto'o seem to be cold at this time.

Comparison and negotiation The striker has been reflecting the offer from Russian for a few days now and last night, he spoke with his agent, Claudio Vigorelli to weigh the pros and cons of a solution that would enrich him considerably but it wold require a brave career choice. In terms of technical level, the Russian league is growing exponentially but it is hard to believe that Anzhi can guarantee Eto'o international exposure appropriate to his illustrious career. Eto'o has continued a dialogue with the directors of of a very rich man Kurimov. For one thing, the Russians have proposed a three-year contract with a very high salary of 20 million net per season. 60 million euros in total but he wants 80 in 4 years. Today, all parties will discuss again.

Strategy The potential buyer will also sit at a table with Inter to get more information about Eto'o. It is a duty to ready with attention the movement of the Italian club. In view of the financial fair play, it is clear that Massimo Moratti has to reduce the costs of salaries. This explains the caution of the president in the recent face to face meeting with Eto'o. And by tomorrow night, each parties must begin to play their cards. For example, Anzhi will start with a 20 million offer to Inter but it appears that they are ready to raise to 30. In this case, the club of Palazzo Saras might even sell to receive a capital gain. But before letting Eto'o go, Moratti will have to make other evaluations. In this context he will evaluate the move for Tevez of City, the designated substitute for a long time.



Paycut from Tevez. Lavezzi costs less. Kucka is very close.
Carlitos practices with City: "But I will leave." The other Argentinian is the alternative.
Tomorrow, meeting with Genoa for the Slovak.

Milan - Samuel Eto'o is being tempted by the millions from Russia which inevitably reconciles with Carlos Tevez to Inter. But Ezequiel Lavezzi is also at the window due to the recent friction between him and Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis.

Separate house Yesterday Carlos Tevez presented at the sports center of Manchester City after the extra vacation days (initially he had to return last Thursday) granted to him by Roberto Mancini following the efforts in Copa America. The Apache in Carrington appeared smiling. A few jokes were exchanged between him and his teammates and with the security personnel. But that was just the outside because the atmosphere at City is not perfect after the loss in the Community Shield match against United and because the 27 year-old Argentinian striker is in a separate house. Clear connection to the words of his agent, Kia Joorabchian: "Carlos still wants to leave Manchester but he is still a City player and we respect this situation. The agent also said that he was not worried about the fact that negotiations with Corinthians collapsed leaving his client in an uncomfortable situation: "We are talking about Tevez, one of the best in the world. We are not worried that the transfer to Corinthians collapsed."


Contacts with Inter The fact is that talks with the club in Corso Vittorio Emanuele were made and the basis of an agreement has already been laid on the table. Everything was facilitated by the fact that, in order to reach his new teammates in a city that has already demonstrated his love, the Apache would also be willing to shrink his lavish salary (9 million net) which binds him to City until 2014. Inter, on the other hand, are ready to offer him a four-year deal that lengthens his career until 2015.

Game The real issue, however, is between the two clubs. City, despite the arrival of Aguero which costs 43 million euros, deny that they are forced to sell Tevez and the 55 million initial request has dropped to 40 but the English club doesn't seem to want to go further. Especially if Eto'o decided to go to Russia, the only possibility is related to a loan sale with right to purchase set in 2012.

Idea Pocho for Pandev There is also Lavezzi. A month ago, there were contacts for Il Pocho but the 31 million price tag set by Napoli was a turnoff for Inter. Like Tevez, Lavezzi would be perfect as an outside striker in a 4-3-3 that Gasperini has in mind. Recent disagreements with De Laurentiis could bring down the asking price to around 20-25 million. So much so that he said: "We are ready to deal for Lavezzi." Not to mention that Mazzarri really likes Goran Pandev. Meanwhile, dialogues continue between Inter and Genoa for Palacio and Kucka. Tomorrow there will be a new meeting for Kucka who is very close to Inter.



Wesley: "If a right offer comes, I will be sold." Who knows if he will see Pinetina again.

Milan - Welsey Sneijder is waiting for news in the Netherlands. Today he will fly to London for a friendly with Fabio Capello's England. Then he will wait for a few days to see whether or not he would see the Pinetina again on Monday to resume training with Inter or start looking for a house in Manchester. Indicative phrases to the local media yesterday: "Inter have made it clear: if they get a good offer i will be sold. Have I spoken officially with the teams in Manchester? No. Unofficially? I have spoken with so many people..."

Destiny The destiny of this little genius of Utrecht appears that it has already been decided despite the inevitable denials of the teams involved in this torment of the summer. Inter, in the words of technical director Marco Branca, have denied that the deal is closed with City but in fact admitted contacts with Roberto Mancini's club who said that he was never interested in the Dutch. Since the former Inter coach also said that he would be happy if Tevez stays in Manchester, we understand that the market may well be worth a lie. It is true that City have the money ready for Sneijder but at the same time they are also looking at Samir Nasri. Besides having similar characteristics, the two can not both move Manchester because even Sheikh Mansour has a limit. The Frenchman of Arsenal has the advantage in age with 24 compared to 27 of Wes. But with Fabregas potentially is going away, it is very difficult to snatch the other gem of Arsene Wenger.

Close finish The fact remains that Inter have a need to raise cash and that Sneijder is the most attractive to other few clubs who can afford such an operation. The others are Eto'o and Maicon but Moratti does not want to give up because he is considered fundamental in the new project of Gasperini. United's Ferguson remains more than even in the running (and is the favorite according to the bookies) and that Sneijder would be the ideal man to replace Paul Scholes. We are close to the final conclusion and it is up to Soren Lerby, Sneijder's agent to bring the right offer to Branca.

Mariga Meanwhile, on the technical director's agenda today is a meeting with Real Sociedad leaders to define the sale of McDonald Mariga or 6 million. Then he must also find a place for Muntari, Rivas and Santon.

Kucka's agent: "We are evaluating options so we cannot say where he will play next season. Inter? It would be a great opportunity."

Sneijder in the latest interview: "I will still be an Inter player on August 31st. Inter have only said that if a right offer comes, they will talk. I am not making any transfer request.

Russian's assault on the Cameroonian and met with the management of Inter.
Moratti admits: "It is an intelligent and interesting offer. We'll talk."



Moratti pushes Eto'o to Russia. "Intelligent and reasonable offer."
Mijatovic and other Anzhi representatives were at Inter headquarters to negotiate.
Ready to offer a three-year deal worth 20 million per season.
Branca: "Cannot close in one afternoon."

Milan - Samuel Eto'o has a suitcase ready. With the blessing of Massimo Moratti who last night opened the doors wide for Anzhi: "It is an interesting proposal, intelligent and fair. Now it is up to us and the player to evaluate." With each passing hour, the dramatic change of shirt for Eto'o is taking shape.

The landing The meeting at Palazzo Saras started around 15:00. Marco Branca, Inter technical director, did the honors. At one point, there was also the vice president Rinaldo Ghelfi who is also known as "Minister of Treasury" which means that negotiations were very well underway. Representatives of Eto'o were his agent Claudio Vigorelli and lawyer Alberto Ziliani. On their side is the transfer market man of Anzhi, German Tkachenko and intermediaries Vlado Lemic and Pedrag Mijatovic. The most famous is the latter, the former player who knows Eto'o since his time at Real Madrid (he was also a director with Calderon as president).

The exit The meeting lasted for a couple of hours. And all the stars came out one by one. No one opened his mouth. However, Marco Branca was diplomatic more than ever: "We listened to the proposal of Anzhi, but since we are talking about an important player. It is not a negotiation that can be closed in an afternoon." And he is right. All parties left with another appointment in mind which could be today if they feel like there is a need for working over time.


The representatives and lawyers - The first to leave the Inter headquarters: From German Tkachenko, Anzhi representative,
to agent Predrag Mijatovic and Alberto Ziliani, Eto'o's lawyer.

The agent who acted as intermediary - Closed in the afternoon: Vlado Lemic, 45 years old, another intermediary of the Russians arrived in Milan to negotiate for Eto'o, left the latest.

The negotiating table - Seven men for one player: Marco Branca and Rinaldo Ghelfi: here are the directors of Inter that dealt with the representatives of the Russians.

Verification Anzhi also did not waste anytime with the player. Around 19:00, they all went to see the Inter strker in a luxurious hotel in Milan. The face to face makes it clear that the three-year deal is enough for Eto'o so the hypothesis of a four-year one is now gone. Which could be a good news for Inter because it allows the buyers to have more resources. The offer for Inter is around 30 million which makes the total cost of Eto'o is at 110 million. Not a small figure.

Salutes Yesterday, Samuel Eto'o practiced alone. The Cameroonian tomorrow night will board a plane because his country has an appointment with the president of Repubblica for a charity event. This commitment was expected for some time and there is no relevance to the facts of the last hours. But it is possible that dealing with Anzhi has accelerated even further this bizarre coincidence.



Tevez on loan or Pandev for Lavezzi.
The Apache is also linked to the fate of Sneijder who could go to Manchester City despite Nasri.

Milan - Eto'o is leaving? Inter have asked City for Tevez in a loan deal. It is not impossible that the future of the Argentinian is linked to that of Sneijder. Arsenal, in fact, are trying in every way to convince Samir Nasri to renew the contract with the Gunners which is due to expire next year. But the 24 year-old midfielder has already reached an agreement with Manchester City where he would earn almost three times more (6 million per season). Arsenal have also accepted City's 25 million (18 plus 7 in bonuses) because of the risk of losing him at no cost in 12 months time.

Node Nasri It does without saying that if Nasri comes to Manchester then Roberto Mancini will have no more room for Sneijder due to technical and economic reasons. Mansour would be willing to pay the 36 million requested by Inter for the Dutch but only if Nasri doesn't come who, among other things, has the advantage of being three years younger than Sneijder. The alternative solution would be that Mancini could still both trequartisti in an exchange deal between Tevez and Sneijder.

Sale Lavezzi If there is no Tevez, another solution for Inter can really be Ezequiel Lavezzi. It is true that De Laurentiis is holding a release clause at 31 million but there is room to negotiate. Napoli really like Goran Pandev who is trusted very much by Mazzarri. And if the value of the Argentinian comes down to around 20 million, both clubs can talk for an exchange with the Macedonian who is around 7-8 million (plus cash).

Sneijder's words After the game in England got canceled, Sneijder told the Dutch media that he could also stay in Milan: "Inter have only said that they would be willing to talk if there is a good offer for one of its players. I'm not asking for any transfer and it might seem that the club wants to let me go but it is not true. I am playing for Inter and on August 31st I will see my regular teammates. Although I know that until then, everything is open but now I'm used to it."

United It is also difficult for him to go to United. Despite yesterday's rumor of a done deal for 33 million, after the first real contact about a month ago with the player's agent, Soren Lerby, Alex Ferguson's men seem to have given up on the high salary request of a 6.5 million net per season.

11 Aug 11, 06:45


He is ready to become Tsar.
The Russians of Anzhi have reached an agreement with the player and offered 22 million to Inter.
Today, it can be closed at 28 million.

Milan - Samuel Eto'o is further away from Inter and closer to the Russians of Anzhi. After the extended meeting on Tuesday with Inter, the true turning point of negotiations came in the night when the delegation of billionaire Sulejman Kerimoc landed in Milan to meet with the player.

Concrete proposal Only after getting the yes from Eto'o ("We have in fact reached an agreement with the Russian club," said the agent of the Cameroonian, Claudio Vigorelli), the men of Kerimov have officially made an offer to Inter. That is because yesterday morning intermediary Vlado Lenic (accompanied by FIFA agent Peppino Tirre) went with technical director Marco Branca and sporting director Piero Ausilio to the office of Inter vice president Rinaldo Ghelfi. A meeting, which lasted for less than an hour, in which Lenic proposed a 22 millions for Eto'o. Inter reiterated the request of 40 with the idea that even 30 would be very nice but at 27-28, both parties can close. Today, a formal offer is expected from Russia which can unlock everything.



Today, the turning point Lenic has promised Inter that today, after needed evaluations with Kerimov, will let Inter know how much the Russians are willing to raise the bar. Eto'o is not insisting on a 4-year deal so he has accepted a 3-year contract with 20 million per season. So the game right now is with Inter. Since Anzhi can save the monstrous figure in salary the Russian club can offer a few more millions to Inter. The official announcement, however, will not arrive before the start of next week because Eto'o yesterday flew to Cameroon and will not return before Sunday.

Moratti and budget The Nerazzurri are still holding strong position. So much so that after Tuesday's big words ("intelligent and reasonable offer"), Moratti yesterday said that: "Done deal? No, come off it. It is just a proposal and then we have to see what to do." What Inter will do however the president has already decided. After several times stated that the 30 year-old from Nkon is not for sale, Moratti has changed his mind. The real reason is the budget: with this sale, Inter can make money, break down that mountain of wages and perhaps they can now avoid selling Sneijder.

Sneijder and angry fans For the Dutchman, the tracks that lead to Manchester have cooled in recent days. Despite rumors from England and Holland who think that United will bid 35 million, the Red Devils are in fact secluded. The very idea of two champions that could leave Inter has angered the fans on Facebook as Moratti is looking ahead and betting on youngsters.



Tevez remains the team's preference. There is also an offer for Lavezzi.
Sprint for the Argentinian: pressing on City for a loan deal.
Moratti to Napoli: Pandev and 15 million for Il Pocho, but there's Chelsea

Milan - It's a sprint for Tevez and Lavezzi as life after Eto'o approaches. A phone call between Massimo Moratti and Aurelio De Laurentiis has officially opened negotiations to bring Ezequiel Lavezzi at Inter. Inter president has stated that he is willing to put on the plate Goran Pandev plus 15 million for the Napoli player. The Azzurri president has not accepted it he is certainly thinking about it. Because on the horizon there is also Chelsea and yesterday De Laurentiis spoke face to face with Alejandro Mazzoni, agent of the striker which has the release clause of 31 million. And Napoli will try to defend this price tag despite recent disagreements in the relationship. No coincidence that rumors of a more realistic price of 20 to 25 million have been surfaced on the radio.

The feeling This story may have a bearing on the role of Walter Mazzarri, a well known fan of Goran Pandev. If the coach is pushing for this solution, De Laurenttis could take the lead in this deal which mus take account of the Macedonian's salary which binds him to Inter until 2014 with a net annual salary of 3.5 million, a figure out of the budget for the Azzurri. Pandev is in favor of this solution and could accept a financial sacrifice with one condition of a new extended contract. Yesterday his agent was in London to speak with Tottenham. Even Wolfsburg are thinking about him. Behind there is Genoa that Pandev could be included in negotiations for Palacio and Kucka.


The wait Meanwhile Inter are playing their cards with one eye always pointing towards Manchester. The Inter technical dicrector Marco Branca has long been in contact with Carlitos Tevez and his entourage. It is no secret that the club is waiting for a photo finish to snatch Tevez away from City on loan. A solution that would be costly in terms of salary but it would mitigate the risks of this deal.

Reinforcement from Belgium There is also a target for the defense of Inter. To Gasperini, a left center back is needed and the candidate for this role is the captain of Ajax Jan Vertonghen, 24 years old who is also in the thought of Juve and Roma. For now, 12 million is the demand but in the coming days Inter will aim to get a significant discount.

Mariga in Liga Yesterday there was an important meeting for the future of McDonald Mariga. Leaders of Real Sociedad were in full force at Palazzo Saras. President Joaquin Aberry was accompanied by his vice president and general director. They spoke at length with Branca and the Kenyan midfielder's agent. The Spanish are ready to spend about 6 million in multi-year payment. We are well in advance. It can be done.

12 Aug 11, 06:36


Eto'o is still working on the details. Debut with Anzhi on the 21st.
Today waiting for the new offer to Inter and the Russian perfect the contract: already on the field aginst Dynamo Moscow?
Kucka for Viviano. Lavezzi is now at 5 million.
Inter have got Kucka for a half but he remains at Genoa: for now.
Napoli are asking for 20 million but Inter do not want to go over 15.

Milan - You can lengthen the time but things will not change. Samuel Eto'o will be at Anzhi next week and aims for the debut on Sunday, August 21 in the match against Dynamo Moscow. Yesterday was a interlocutory day between the two clubs, which should now resume to polish the difference between demand and supply. Inter will not go under 30 million and the Russians don't want to go over 25. So at 27-28 things can be done but not before next Wednesday. The weekend of Ferragosto (a holiday in Italy) is approaching and Liga is closed for the filing of contracts.

Complex contract Meanwhile, the striker's entourage is finalizing all the details of a very complex contract and different from the usual pre-printed ones. Agent Vigorelli, with the help of lawyers Rotondi and Ziliani, yesterday met with the CEO of Anzhi to define the details of the agreement, from image rights to bonuses which tied to goals, appearances, and wins. For Eto'o, however, he is ready to return to Milan to resume training on Monday afternoon. Even if the divorce is floating in the air, but Eto'o is still an Inter player.

From 80 thousand... The turning point, as mentioned, comes in the middle of next week. Then the Russians will be in a race against time to get the transfer done to allow Eto'o to debut at home on Sunday 21. From 80 thousand seat San Siro to 18 thousand in the stadium of Makhachkala for a double in wage. For Inter, they will lose a champion but at the same time make a gain in capital and cut a huge cost.

Kucka While waiting for the replacement of Samuel Eto'o, yesterday Inter did another exchange with Genoa. Half of Emiliano Viviano goes to the Rossoblu and that of Juraj Kucka now belongs to the Nerazzurri. But if the goalkeeper is packing for Liguria, the Slovak stays under command of Malesani. To president Preziosi is 3 million euros with another appointment to meet again in January: just like a year ago for Andrea Ranocchia. The philosophy is clear: the Nerazzurri have had their hands on this powerful midfielder who landed in Italy in January and immediately became one of the more beautiful realities in the season. So when the winter transfer windows, both clubs will talk again to decide whether or not Kucka will end the season at the Rossoblu or he will be useful at Inter.

Lavezzi and Tevez For for the front of Lavezzi. Inter are still proposing 15 million euros plus the card of Goran Pandev, while Napoli will not go under 20 million. At least that was the response came yesterday in Palazzo Saras after the telephone on Wednesday in which Massimo Moratti and Aurelio De Laurentiis initiated the dialogue. So everything is postponed until next week. Inter want to wait for the developments of the negotiation for Eto'o before moving on new fronts. Speaking of new fronts, don't forget that Carlitos Tevez is always in the thought of Inter. The Argentine is back in Manchester but with the spirit of one who wants a transfer. City are struggling to accept the ideal of a loan but if there is no other offers for Tevez...

City return and salary is a problem. With Inter, the relationship is cold.
Understanding between Moratti and Mancini and the word of Ferguson depress the Dutch.

Milan - Within two weeks, the shirt of Sneijder has changed several times. And now the Dutch is spending the last few days on vacation between doubts and anxieties. And when he returns to Milan, there could be some surprises. Attention is needed since this is the summer transfer market. And also a flashback is useful.

The understanding On one occasion, an authoritative handshake brought Sneijder to Manchester City for 36 million euros to Inter and a 7 million net to the player. Too bad that this verbal commitment between Inter president Massimo Moratti and City coach Roberto Mancini has been swept by subsequent details.

Admissions The first to be surprised was Wesley who in recent days has been saying a few words here and there and they are in many ways very enigmatic. Never, however, the Dutchman has ruled out the possibility of a transfer while at the same time admitted contacts with United. This is the main track on which his agent has been working one for a long time and the interest of Sir Alex Ferguson however, has always been beneath the surface.

The top The problem is that there is no understanding on the salary. If at Inter, there is only Samuel Eto'o (10.5 million with bonuses) in front of him, but at Manchester United the gap is much shortened. At the top, there is Wayne Rooney but only at 7 million. Sneijder expects a transfer with significant recognition, namely he wants to be viewed as the biggest symbol at Old Trafford even more than the striker. And in from this perspective, Ferguson decided to stop the dialogue with Inter. Even though that several people (including Scholes) at some point referred the Dutchman as ideal for strengthening the midfield.

About-face Now even with this nuanced perspective Inter and Sneijder must pick up the pieces to start the season. With the suitcases in hands, the Dutch looks confused. If not stunned. No coincidence that in recent days he revealed the decision to sell by the club: "I will be sold if the right offer comes." And he will talk to the leaders at Palazzo Saras. At least this is his state of mind. So when he returns, it is necessary to meet for a clarification which at this point, is essential.



The hunt for Eto'o's replacement is always open: other than Carlitos and Lavezzi, there is also the Uruguayan.

Milan - Roberto Mancini has said that he would be very happy if Carlos Tevez stays at Manchester City. "We have two weeks until the end of the transfer market. I think it is difficult for Tevez to leave. i don't know if he will but at the moment, there is no team that really wants to take him. However, I would be very if he stays."

Loan and paycut There is a team that wants Apache and that would be Inter. But the club does not intend to pay the 40 million requested by City for the entire card and only consider a loan with the obligation to purchase next year. From Manchester, the English club is insisting on a permanent transfer but if by the end of August and there is no news, Inter could see their patience rewarded. Only then, they will verify the will of Tevez. If the Argentine wants to play for the Nerazzurri, he will have to confirm the intention to accept a reduction of his salary, which is currently over 7 million net per season. In addition to make money, one of the main reasons why Inter have agreed to sell Eto'o is in fact the need to lower the total wages given that the Cameroonian is making 10.5 million at the club of Moratti.

Lavezzi, the alternative For all these reasons, Marco Branca and his collaborators are also monitoring other situations. The most concrete alternative to Tevez remains Il Pocho Lavezzi with Pandev on the other way to Napoli plus 15 million but De Laurentiis wants 20. But don't also forget about Rodrigo Palacio which also involves the Macedonian.

Idea Ramirez In fact repeated contact with Genoa was not only about the exchange between Kucka and Viviano but also for the 29 year-old winger who was coached by Gasperini during his time at Genoa. And also watch out for a possible operation that the two clubs could be put in place together for Gaston Ramirez. The 20 year-old Uruguayan is at odds with Bologna where he plays as a trequartista but can also play on the outside. He certainly meets what Inter are looking for: young, talented, with low salary.



He will speak in Cameroon today and Monday to Milan with Moratti.
House and private flights in mega contract.

Milan - A few days in Africa before his transfer to Anzhi comes to an end which until recently seemed like a fantasy. Samuel Eto'o arrived in Cameroon and with Gabon president visit a few venues for the next African Cup of Nations. Today he will hold a press conference in Douala but to talk about the foundation and Cameroon. Although according to his home country, he could also announce that he will be at Anzhi. But Samu more than likely will not respond to any transfer market questions. "I have before me three or four more years of football at the highest level. I want to win the World Cup with Cameroon and it would be the World Cup for the Africans."

Lion King Tuesday The fact is that it will be a few more days until final pieces can fall into place and then he can officially say goodbye to Inter. Yesterday, there was no contact between Inter and Anzhi. The Russian delegation will return to Milan on Tuesday, the day that Eto'o is expected to have a face to face meeting with Moratti. If the Russians have at least 30 million requested by Inter then the deal will be closed and Eto'o can make his debut against Dynamo Moscow August 21.

Home and flights So recent days, his entourage has already finalized the details of a three-year contract which includes, in addition to the 20 million net per season plus bonuses which tied to goals and team objectives, a series of benefits including private jet and a house in Moscow.

Sky: Important contact between Inter and Forlan. Meeting is next week. Forlan is a low-cost option at 6-7 million and could make around 4.5 million annually.

Goodbye Inter. The Cameroonian: "I could stay." But in reality, he has already chosen Anzhi.
"I'm negotiating with Russians, but watch out for the English." The agent: "It's cinema..."



For Eto'o, the moment of salute is coming. "There is also England." But he has already chosen the Russians.
In Cameroon, he reveals: "Negotiating with Anzhi, but watch for Premier League surprise and I could also stay at Inter." Agent: "All an act."

Milan - There is a devil in Eto'o. During the political, institutional and beneficial tour (among other "brothers" such as Drogba and Essien, he met with the president of Gabon and Cameroon's Health Minister), the Lion King launched a press conference to announce the construction of a pavilion hospital in Douala, speak about his national team ("Continuing to be the captain of the Indomitable Lions is not my priority") and, when pressed, throw out a bomb about the transfer market. "Negotiations are underway - said Eto'o when the third question was asked about his move to Russia - and it is possible that I could leave as well as stay. We will wait until the end of the market which will be shortly. When I leave here I will continue the negotiations. The truth is that I am currently a player of Inter but I am not excluding a possible surprise from England."

The Russians He has opened up the sky. Eto'o in the Premier League would be a bang. On one hand, it would make more sense because the man who has won four Champions League titles would love to play in the top European and win the trophies that he is still lacking. But these utterances are known as fantasy football.

Chelsea and City The only two English teams that could possibly thinking about Eto'o are Chelsea and City. Both, at one point, thought about it but later withdrew their interest. The Blues have completed their offensive department by acquiring the 18 year-old Belgian Romelu Lukaku from Anderlecht who is considered by many as the striker for the future. City, in contrast, would also like Eto'o but only if he comes in an exchange with Carlos Tevez. But here is where Inter come in as their intention is to make cash from the sale of Eto'o and to get Tevez on loan.

The denial Here is Claudio Vigorelli, agent of Eto'o, to talk about his agent's words: "With those words, Samuel just wanted to make a little film. I haven't heard from City and Chelsea for a long time so I can deny that these are possible destinations. The right track is one that leads to Anzhi." Not by chance that the Russians will return Tuesday in Milan to close the deal so that Eto'o can be featured in the match against Dynamo Moscow on Sunday. Agreement reached with the player is for three years, 20 million per season plus bonuses and many benefits. Kerimov doesn't want to spend more than 25 million and Inter aim to make at least 30. So they will meet half way and it will close.

The People: "Tevez's agent to Milan tomorrow to talk with to Inter. Tevez/Sneijder swap is on."

"About the 2006 Scudetto we are calm." The President: "Eto'o is leaving? No drama. Even when Ibrahimovic left us, instead we won everything." Tevez, Forlan, Lavezzi? "Yes, they are the names. And Sneijder stays."



"The fans were also disappointed when Ibra left but then we all know how that turned out."
"We are working on Lavezzi and Forlan. Tevez coming is the most difficult."
"Scudetto 2006? I will call the presidents one by one and and I will give it..."

Lungomare Vespucci, vintage bicycle, cream-colored t-shirts, sunglasses, from Bagno Piero straight to talking football: here is Massimo Moratti on his last day of vacation while Eto'o is on the day of farewell. But not only that. From Samuel to Ibrahimovic, Adriano Galliano to Lega, from Lavezzi to De Laurentiis, from Sneijder, Forlan and lastly Giuseppe Rossi to Calciopoli, here is the number one in an afternoon which equipped with thoughts and words.

President, let's start with Samuel Eto'o because it seems like he will leave. What will you miss the most about him as a footballer or as a human being?
"I will miss Samuel a lot in both senses. He is a very serious professional and a top footballer in every true sense of the word. He has been dragging the team especially in times of difficulty and has always been at the highest level just like a great footballer that he is."

Is Eto'o in your top 5 of champions?
"Maybe so, however, I would say that his purchase was a successful one."

Is financial fair play the one to blame?
"When an offer comes, well, it is hard to match or refuse. Financial fair play is serious, it is no joke. Those who do not respect its parameters will find themselves out of European competition. There is no turning back. I believe that the Italian teams should find the right balance because without it, well, we would regret it bitterly. And I certainly do not want to come to that point where we regret it. Budgets and costs should be reasoned and when you get an offer that, like I said, is difficult to match or refuse, who can you be indifferent?"

Is it true that Samuel Eto'o asked for a contract renewal?
"Absolutely not."

How do you like Carlos Tevez? Can he be the replacement for the Cameroonian?
"Well, I don't think that we can get to him."

So who wll be the big signing: Forlan or Lavezzi?
"Those names are ones that we are working on. We are watching and evaluating. We'll see."

So when Eto'o leaves, will that automatically make Wesley Sneijder staying at Inter?
"For Wes, there has never been any sort of negotiation. When Eto'o leaves, he will stay. But Sneijder was untouchable even before this so he is even more now. In short, Sneijder will stay."

Good news for the fans but they seem a little disappointed with the sale of Eto'o...
"The answer is this: the fans were also disappointed when Ibrahimovic left Inter. Then you know how that turned out..."

Are you interested in Giuseppe Rossi?
"No. We have never thought of him. We are looking for a player with different characteristics..."

Have you spoken with De Laurentiis for Lavezzi?
"We heard from each other. We talked. There was a phone conversation but at the end of that contact, there was a no...."

And how the discussion related to Calciopoli will end?
"I feel like telling a joke: one day I'm going to call up all the clubs' Presidents, one club at the time, and I'll gift them that Scudetto. Calciopoli has nothing to do with me, but with others, I'm not involved in it whatsoever. You see, Italy is a country where if you feel guilty about something, you want others to feel guilty too. But I have no sense of guilt about this, and I never will."

President, are we becoming a Pizzeria: for Galliani it is Italian football... (Serie A is becoming a selling league)
"Galliani is very right. Like the stadiums, we are lacking just a very normal evolution that others have already finished abroad. This is serious: Italy has prestige and our clubs are competing in International competitions without increasing economic potential and we are becoming "outsiders" of Europe. Even so, at the same time, we should keep an eye on budgets and costs."

In other to not collapse totally...
"Football has remained the same: financial fair play is a serious thing. It takes pride to defend both image of Italy and these new rules you just cannot say 'who cares'. The rules must be respected always, there must be taken into account in all areas of life."

What is the life of next season as you see it?
"We have a strong structure that is a certainty."

Will players start a strike?
"I don't think so because I'm sure we will find an agreement. The future identity of Lega? Well, in three years you will see..."

What do you say to those who think Milan are the favorite?
"There is Juve which is not a weak team because it has reinforced a lot. Milan? They are staying the same except getting a good defender (Mexes) but I don't know if they are the favorite. Then there are also others: Roma are yet to be understood, Napoli are dangerous and Lazio have made some very interesting purchases."

But what about Inter? What team will the fans see on August 31?
"They should remain calm. I repeat that what makes me feel relaxed is because of a strong structure, very strong and important that we have. Last year we did not win because of the distractions in certain crucial moments during the season. However, we did pretty good year. We will probably lose a great player like Eto'o but there is the team where Gasperini will give us his style of play and then someone will arrive via transfer market."

Lavezzi's agent: "Both presidents (that of Napoli and Inter) but there is nothing concrete. An official offer hasn't arrived from Inter."

18 Aug 11, 06:50


Anzhi landed and Eto'o agreed. And now Inter will negotiate to the bitter end.
The Russians will close with the Cameroonian for a three-year deal around 20 million per season.
Then, they will offer 22 million to the Nerazzurri who are resisting for 30. So it closes at 25 plus bonuses?

Fans waiting at Inter headquarters and the costs of Eto'o over the years.

Milan - In places of luxury, Samuel Eto'o is ready to say goodbye to Inter. The effects are special. It can not be otherwise. It takes a suitable location for the transfer of the highest paid player in the world. So the emissaries of Mr. Kerimov landed at the Four Seasons while the Cameroonian and his entourage waited at Bulgari. Shopping for the Russians lasted a few hours in Corso Vittorio Emanuele which is near the Inter headquarters around a few kilometers from the buildings that negotiations took place. A type of negotiation that electrifies the world of Inter. The same Eto'o followed personally the final phases of negotiations with his laywer Alberto Ziliani and agent Claudio Vigorelli.

The missive On behalf of Anzhi, there was also consultant of transfer German Tkachenko and and intermediary agent Vlado Lemic. The heart and soul of this operation is FIFA agent Peppino Tirri who was in charge of making movements with Inter. Anzhi started negotiation with a proposal of 18 million euros. From Inter, the answer was obviously negative. Tirre took a journey back to the buyers to convince them to raise the offer.

The confront Newest meeting was in a quiet garden of Bulgari over a plate of pasta and the FIFA agent got his goal. After one hour, a more reasonable offer was ready for Inter: 22 million. This time, Branca was less concerned but his request still stays the same: 30 million euros. So the goal is still far away. The afternoon started slipping away fast. Contacts continued by phone. Also because some of Anzhi representatives remained with Eto'o to finish an agreement related to image rights.

The wait For his part, Inter technical director Marco Branca stayed at his office up to 9 o'clock at night. With a smile, the Inter director said: "We'll see." In fact his day continued with a dinner of work. With whom? With the usual suspects that are the protagonists in this operation. Logic says that at the end, things could close at 25 million plus bonuses. So we are still waiting. Meanwhile according to a report from FcInterNews.it, Eto'o said that: "I will play with Anzhi in Russia, I have nothing left to give Inter." If he says so...



The Kenyan to Real Sociedad, Apache advances forward. Forlan and Lavezzi are on stand-by.
Lucio until 2014. And Alborno has landed.

Milan - McDonald Mariga to Real Sociedad on loan for 1.5 million with a right to purchase set at 5. Ivan Ramiro Cordoba, after years in Italy, has became a comunitario which means that he will open up one more non-EU spot at Inter. The Nerazzurri now have the total of two non-EU spots available after the departure of Obinna. Another news coming from Inter is that Lucio has extended his contract to two more seasons until 2014. An agreement was found thanks to variable parts especially in the last year of the agreement. So Lucio is staying at Inter and he also said to Inter Channel: "I am happy for the renewal and the trust, which I will repay. You will see it on the field."

Tevez and Casemiro Despite the words of Massimo Moratti ("I don't think we can get to him"), Carlos Tevez remains high on the list: it is him, unlike Diego Forlan (Spanish passport and he is still called up for a match in Europa League) and Ezquiel Lavezzi (a transfer would be within Italian football), that represents a possible transfer with the status of non-EU. But with an Italianized Cordoba, Inter have been granted another non-EU spot for Tevez and perhaps a midfielder (Casemiro?). Tevez is at the top but dealing for him has always been based on a loan deal, a situation that City are not listening at the moment.

Idea Drogba? Hard Meanwhile, while the Paraguayan Alborno has been put under contract until 2016, another rumor has emerged: the case of Didier Drogba, a rumor that has no confirmation or foundation.

The other two And what about Lavezzi and Forlan? They are all in stand-by mode because for the former, De Laurentiis will not swerve from the release clause of 31 million euros and for the Uruguayan, however, he is called up for the match tonight against Vitoria Guimaraes and if he plays, he cannot participate in the first phase of the Champions League.

Palacio and Kucka And in all of this, today there will be a meeting between Inter and Genoa to talk about many things: to define the exchange of half Kucka and half Viviano. Inter will also try to see if they can get him now instead of waiting until January of 2012. And then? Who knows. Rodrigo Palacio has always been linked with Goran Pandev. Gasperini still has to receive a green light from Pandev even if Palacio remains one of the targets.

19 Aug 11, 07:01


Anzhi, between misunderstandings and raises, are at 24. The Nerazzurri are at 29.
A breakthrough can be found by a phone call to the president?

Milan - Misunderstandings, raises, fits of rage and another gray smoke. There was everything in the intense second day of Anzhi in Milan hunting for Eto'o. The difference between supply and demand has been narrowed down to "only" 5 million euros. At lunchtime, the Russians raised their offer from 22 to 24 million euros while there was a small discount from Inter which is down from 30 to 29. "But that is the last price," insists the Nerazzurri director Marco Branca with the emissaries of Kerimov.

Countdown Meanwhile, the fact is that the Cameroonian is starting to lose patience. Eto'o has already reached an agreement with Anzhi which ensures the now famous three-year deal, 20 million per season. A record that makes him the highest paid player in the world. And given that Eto'o also likes to win, he wants to hurry up and join his new teammates in Anzhi which is currently in fourth place. Ever since negotiation begun, Eto'o has spoken a couple of times on the phone with president Moratti. It is quite possible that the two will hear from each other again in the coming hours. Eto'o is now in a hurry and could spoke to Moratti for help.

Quid pro quo In the early afternoon, there was a hindrance. For example, a problem occurred when lawyer Alberto Ziliani sent copies of contracts which have been agreed upon in previous days from Russia. On the bonuses, however, a misunderstanding arises due to different tax system between the two countries. So for an hour, an iceberg was dropped between the involved leaders of this negotiation. So much so that FIFA agent Peppino Tirre said to Gazzetta.it: "The deal is frozen." But it is just a precaution. By 5 pm in the evening, everything was clear by phone and the Cameroonian's entourage returned smiling. All details are now clarified. For example, it has been determined that the salary will be paid in euro.

Comings and goings His agent Claudio Vigorelli spoke at length with Tirre and Vlado Lemic while Tkachenko left Milan early in the direction of Munich. Soon after, Mijatovic also left the places of negotiation. The Russian team had dinner late at Bulgari hotel while keeping contact with Russia. Prying eyes confirmed that at some point, glass was broken when discussion became more heated. But it is just a storm. Soon the calm will present again and agreement will be found in line with the Nerazzurri. So all will keep close contact by phone. And the everything could be closed today because everyone in this negotiation wants to turn the page. And most of all is Eto'o.

Forlan and signal Among many familiar faces which were at the Bulgari hotel in Milan yesterday, there was one which was unnoticed: Daniel Blotnicoff, Forlan's agent. He spoke with his colleague Vigorelli to understand how to engage in negotiations that would lead the Uruguayan to Inter. However, Bolotnicoff hasn't seen Branca yet. The coach of Atletico Madrid, Manzano, after including Forlan in the list of players for the Europa League match against Vitoria Guimaraes, decided to send him in the stands. The match that would have precluded him in the Champions League until February. The track to Inter remains alive despite the interest from Zenit.

From Russia: Anzhi have suspended negotiations for Eto'o and are looking elsewhere for alternatives just in case this deal is still frozen today.

Now only three million separates Inter and Anzhi.
It's time to choose. Much nervousness but both parties have come closer.
A raise to 27 million with bonuses. Right figure?

Milan - Three, two, one. The countdown for Samuel Eto'o and his millions of euros starts now. And right now it's three. Obviously we are referring to the difference between the demand and supply between Inter and Anzhi for the Cameroonian striker. A gap is slowly narrowing. But the progress is too slow compared to the expectations of all parties. And this has led to inevitable nervousness of those moments. With strategic leaks, ultimatums and collective anxieties.

Negotiations Yesterday, the dialogue was mainly by phone. Almost all the emissaries left Milan leaving everything in the hands of FIFA agent Peppino Tirre, the intermediary chosen by the two teams. On the other side of the player, instead is his agent Claudio Vigorelli and lawyers Rotondi and Ziliani. A meeting in the morning was needed to clarify a few things which are now clear between the player and the club of Dagestan. Then, at lunch, Tirre and Vigorelli agreed on the need to speed up time.

Pressing Even the buyers remained silent, eager to close the file. And in the early afternoon, the largest thunderstorm came with Anzhi willing to change objective. On the front of Inter, it was up to Marco Branca to play in the role of a firefighter. Around 4 in the afternoon, Tirre got a call to sit down with Inter. The Russians raised offer to 25 million (including bonuses) while Inter showed the willingness to go down to 28 (with the usual bonus).

The difference It is a small step made by each side from the figures on Thursday which were 24 and 29. Missing, however, is a written offer of negotiations and the leaders of this negotiation decided to take up more precious time. Now the difference is three million. If you consider that on Wednesday the two teams were far apart as much as 10 millions...

The wait Samuel Eto'o at the same time is consuming time waiting at home. So Vigorelli makes constant visits to inform him in detail, almost like a commentary. The striker is the most impatient of all. This week, he has only taken two training sessions separately. His mind is already projected to the new experience and in a hurry to join new teammates.

Diplomacy It was a long and nerve-wrecking night. From Russia, they knew that the written offer was imminent and a turning point was coming. But hours passed apparently in vain. Marco Branca remained at his office until late, withing for that fateful email. And with him were other anxious protagonists of this negotiation. The rumor is that Anzhi can touch the 27 million mark that is 1 million away from Inter goal. Cautions are needed at this point of negotiation. This is also why everyone wants to avoid controversial tones. The hope is that the night the right amount will come.

Gazzetta and Sky: verbal agreement between Inter and Anzhi for Eto'o. The fee from Sky is 25 million plus bonuses.

The farewell - Salute to teammates: "Win without me." Tevez is in pole in terms of arrivals.
The transfer of the Cameroonian to the Russians will leave at Inter 99 million between transfer fee and salary saved.



Goodbye Samuel, he is now Anzhi's: "Win also without me."
The Russians will pay 27 million euros to the Nerazzurri but considering other savings like salary, this is an operation that worth almost 100 million. Signature is tomorrow.

Appiano Gentile - "Thank you, thank you everyone. I will always root for Inter and I want to say one thing: win without me." Samuel Eto'o salutes all of his former (almost) teammates at Pinetina by embracing all. Samuel Eto'o will go to Anzhi Makhachkala because the agreement - for now only verbally - was found yesterday on the basis of 27 million (25 plus bonuses) and because this agreement will be ratified tomorrow. Today Inter will salute the Lion King definitely and the club will begin consultations (between Gasperini, Branca and Ausilio) to find his successor.

27 The operation that involves Eto'o will leave behind for Inter a treasure of nearly 100 million euros between transfer fee and salary of the player: a treasure, which fits perfectly into the plans of Moratti for the future of Inter. The calculation is the sum of 27 million plus 12 million per season (9 plus bonus) for the next three years because Eto'o has a contract at Inter until 2014. Inter, after the stand-by two days ago, was playing around with a request 23 million plus bonuses compared to the 20 million from Anzhi. The Russian club then increased to 22 million plus 3 in bonuses (25 total) - added to the money that Eto'o decided not to collect in the month of August - makes the offer to 27 million net.


Total sale = 25million + 2 bonus = 27 million
Total net until 2014 (salary saved) = (9 million/year + 3 bonus/year) x 3 years = 12 x 3 = 36 million
Total gross until 2014 = 72 million
Total sale + total gross until 2014 = 27 + 72 = 99

You come here... For Samuel Eto'o, who is almost a former Inter player, yesterday was full of meetings: in the morning after after trained separately - he took the time to greet every person who has lived with him these two years at Inter: teammates, technical staff, management, physiotherapists, masseurs and bartenders, warehouse workers, no one was excluded from a hug of Eto'o. When he was in the dressing room, he united his teammates before training thanking each one by one and telling them to keep wining.

Secondary gate Then, after leaving Appiano Gentile (from a secondary gate leaving fans disappointed), Eto'o returned to Bulgari hotel and had lunch with his wife Georgette, a couple of friends and a person of his staff. At a nearby table there were Mijatovic and another Spanish intermediary. "No comment" was said regarding whether or not negotiations have ended. The same "no comment" was also given by Anzhi general manager Herman Christyakov. Eto'o, in white shirt and shorts, appeared calm and relaxed having lunch. He also made and received a few calls then left at around 3:15 in the afternoon. A few minutes before he left Bulgari hotel, Mijatovic greeted him from a distance with a nod. A goodbye will arrive in the next few hours when contract will be put on paper after the verbal agreements made between the two clubs and between the player and Anzhi.

The top The transfer of Samuel Eto'o seems to be the top economically for the player and Inter. The Nerazzurri will get a treasure of around 99 million while Samuel Eto'o, in addition of a mega villa in Moscow, will be the best paid player in the history of football. The questions, if anything, are two: who will replace Eto'o and will he resist without the Great Football? Well, those are different stories.



Lower with Tevez and advance on Forlan.
The Uruguayan's father: "He's almost certain that he will wear back and blue." But watch for PSG.

Milan - Tomorrow is the day of turning point regarding the transfer market for Inter. After fixing the question of Eto'o-Anzhi, Inter will return talking about signings between Branca, Ausilio and Gasperini. There are two files of names: the first is Tevez and Forlan, the second is Lavezzi and Zarate.

Priority The first move will be made for Tevez. Branca will press on the accelerator immediately with Manchester CIty for the Apache. The negotiation can be set on loan with the right to purchase to get around the requested 40 million for the entire card. Carlitos, for his part, is willing to drop the salary a couple of million for Inter. But tomorrow Branca could also see Bolotnicoff, Forlan's agent, in the evening. Bolotnicoff, after a relaxed week in Spain, is still waiting in Milan. The deal is progressing thanks to Cambiasso, one of the leaders of the Inter dressing room. The friendship between him and Forlan goes back to Independiente, where they played together from 1998 to 2001. Esteban and Diego, these days, are often heard from each other on the phone and have spoken of the opportunity to be in the same dressing room.

Obstacle But there is an obstacle with a strong French accent: Paris Saint Germain. Leonardo wants Forlan but to avoid diplomatic incidents, he has decided to wait developments at Inter before joining forcefully for the Uruguayan striker. A sort of gentleman's agreement that the former Inter coach is self-imposed to avoid giving Inter problems after a critical period. His exit from Inter was anesthetized and does nto seem to reopen the case now. Also because Forlan is also on the radar of Galatasary and Zenit but his preference is Inter according to his father: "When the deal for Eto'o concluded, it is almost certain that Diego will end up at Inter."

Other trails In the second file of Branca the names cannot be viewed as fallback instead, they are excellent alternatives. Moratti is ready to offer 13-14 million plus Pandev for Lavezzi, on whom however, there is also Zenit of Spalletti. But De Laurentiis only wants to see 31 million, or those from the release clause, the right figure for him to leave Napoli.

Third Argentinian A few days ago there was also the name of Zarate. Inter and the player's entourage have taken the opportunity to discuss the situation of the Argentinian. It was an informal chat which showed the desire that Inter at least want to make an attempt. Lazio, however, want to sell outright, while the Nerazzurri would propose a loan deal with right to purchase. So here, for the moment, all is blocked. Pending developments in other situations.

22 Aug 11, 06:06


Gasperini: "We are short. We need 3 here." The coach is worried: "I also need a winger. And in the midfield..."
Hunting Casemiro, Vertonghen, Palacio. Today transfer market meeting: the Argentinian is the favorite on Forlan who is being hunted by Leo's PSG.


The list - Four names to please the coach of Inter:

Gasperini has asked for at least three reinforcements to fix the team on the eve of the league. First is a striker that will be the replacement of departing Eto'o. Tevez is the favorite. Then a winger who is capable of connecting the team's departments (midfield and attack): the goal is Palacio of Genoa. In the midfield, Inter have always been following Casmiro, the jewel of Sao Paulo. Meanwhile, here is Veronghen of Ajax for the defense: Belgian, young, versatile and a lefty.

Carlos Tevez - Manchester City: The Apache, 27 years old, is the first choice of Inter. The Argentinian is also willing to drop the salary in order to play for Inter.

Carlos Henirque Casemiro - San Paulo: The Brazilian, 19 years old, was one of the protagonists of the recent Under 20 World Cup which his Brazil just won in Colombia.

Jan Vertonghen - Ajax: Belgian left-footed central defender, 24 years old, can also act as a shield in front of the defense.

Rodrigo Palacio - Genoa: The Argentinian, 29 years old, was one of Gasperini's proteges for his versatility and quality. In addition, two season, to the 16 goals he scored in A.

Geneva Switzerland - A sentence that smacks down the siege. But without raising the white flag. "We just - Gian Piero Gasperini says - need reinforcements because considering that we will play a lot. How many players do we need? At least two or three." So the coach of Inter has pushed the big red alarm button. He knows that this Inter, who suffered against Olympiakos, are incomplete. And must be completed immediately.

Two wingers The explanation comes immediately from Gasp: "There are two strikers Milito and Pazzini - the Inter coach in post-match interview against the Greeks - but we also need two wingers ones that can create plays offensively. Yes, it takes two wingers to broaden our players. Of course, Pazzini and Milito can play together. But at certain situations, the Argentinian could play an expanding role because he has characteristics for such role. After this game, however, it reinforces my beliefs that we would be better off with three strikers instead of two."

And in the midfield He also made a comment on the midfield: "We have Thiago Motta, Cambiasso and Stankovic: these are the midfielders that are available to me, then..." Then there is another man. Gasp nods as if he has said yes about this situation several times. Casemiro is a super choice for a long time that Inter have in mind."

Good names Now the attack. With Tevez and Forlan? Or just one of the two? "I don't talk about other players from other teams but it is clear that someone important has to come. My problem is not on a single game but when I will face three games in a week. It is true that right now there are many players unavailable but my speech would also stay the same when we are at full strength. What characteristics should the new striker has? The striker should raise the quality of the team, now we must recognized that the market is difficult and complicated. Without numerical differences we will have a complete team. Are the names good players? Undoubtedly yes."

Betniez's syndrome And here we talk about injuries but no transfer market. "I don't suffer from any syndrome. We have not had many players but the injuries are not serious. Today Stankovic had a fever and Sneijder had other problems. Eto'o is gone but the team will be complete will continue doing well. Of course, you need other people."


A defender Today or tomorrow. It is going to happen either today or tomorrow. Because as soon as the Lion King, officially, leaves Inter there will be a meeting in which discussions will be held regarding to how Inter will spend the 100 million to make Gian Piero Gasperini happy. Gasp wants a midfielder and two wingers but there is a rumor of a different request: a central defender on the line of 3, and it would be Jan Bert Lieve Vertonghen, born in '87, a Belgian, stands 1.90 meters and is playing for Ajax.

Tevez Within 48 hours, Gian PIero Gasperini, technical director Marco Branca and sporting director Piero Ausilio will sit at a table and choose not only for the post-Eto'o but the rest of the players which would make Gasperini more serene. The list is ready. The heir of the Lion King will be chosen based on many things: age, price, adaptability to the ideas of Gasperini, can fit well to the group. And It is clear, the number one option is Carlitos Tevez (more than Forlan, Zarate and Lavezzi). Tevez began the second match of the Premier League yesterday: it can mean everything or nothing but it is clear that his name would have a huge influence of the people at Inter. Of course, for now, Manchester City only want to sell definitively while Inter are still trying to secure the Argentinian on a loan deal with option to buy.

Forlan for Leo? The other strong name is obviously Diego Forlan. Inter will see his agent tonight but there is a very strong proposal coming from Leonardo's PSG. The idea of getting Forlan is not collapsed but it will be tough such as those deals with Zarate (Lotito just wants to sell) and Lavezzi (31 million release clause). Gasperini says that he wants two wingers: so watch out for the return of Palacio provided that Inter can convince Pandev to choose Malesani.

Casemiro or Kucka? For the midfield, it appears on the front page the names of Casemiro (there's also Roma) and Kucka whom Preziosi does not want to lose until January 1, 2012. The hypothesis is always the same: Inter to take Casemiro and send him to Genoa for the release of Kucka immediately. So the transfer market meeting is ready to go.


Eto'o's agent: "Anzhi are coming either tonight or tomorrow. The deal is in pipeline and I don't think there will be any further problems."

Forlan denies: "Inter are a top club but I have two more years in contract. I can't think of anything else."

Apparently Forlan's agent is in meeting with Inter vicepresident. Inter technical director and... Eto'o's agent are there also.

Reports from France are that PSG are ready to offer 15 million for Milito. Leo's interest for Milito and Forlan are well known.

Kuyt's agent: "Inter have made an attractive offer to Kuyt and he has to think about it."

Anzhi are in Milan finalizing the last details for Eto'o. They're talking to Inter vicepresident at the moment. Agent: "We hope that we are here to close negotiation for Eto'o."

Agent: "We are optimistic about the transfer of Eto'o to Anzhi even if the closure of this deal has been postponed until tomorrow. We're working on details for all parties."

23 Aug 11, 07:42


The coach is looking for wingers: Pocho is first on the list, alternative is the Lazio player.
Perhaps with Palacio. Slow down on Tevez and Forlan rises. The track of Kuyt returns.



Transfer market letter to President. The request of Gasp to Moratti.
He needs one of Lavezzi and Zarate. Gasperini has launched an alarm on the wings: I want Pocho or the Lazio player as alternative maybe together with Palacio.

Milan - Exactly a year ago, Rafa Benitez wanted three players: Kuyt, Mascherano and Patrice Evra. Zero out of three. A year later, Gian Piero Gasperini - compared to Rafa - will no longer have Eto'o but with the purchases in January and July: Alvarez, Pazzini, Ranocchia, Jonathan and Nagatomo. But not enough. "We need men and reinforcements - he said after the pale 2-2 against Olympiacos - we are short in multiple departments. I want wingers and one midfielder."

There's also Kuyt Yesterday there was the first meeting between the coach and Inter transfer market men (Branca and Ausilio) which were also busy arranging the final issues for Eto'o. More meeting will take place today and after much talk, this will be concrete. The so-called list of preferences will be there which perhaps could be a bit different (or not) from what Inter will be able to do on the transfer market. On the top of Gasp's list is Lavezzi, then Zarentti followed by Palacio, the last two are Forlan and Tevez. But he would not mind Kuyt because he is also a winger. Kuyt doesn't score a lot but coaches and directors like him. In this case there is Inter: the Dutch is not in the top five of Gasperini but the latest idea, perhaps, is the most concrete for Moratti, Branca and Ausilio. Yesterday, his agent, Robert Jansen said: "Inter have shown strong interest and Kuyt is thinking about it. There is a 20% chance that this transfer could be closed." Inter will call Liverpool to seek for information this week but there are no meetings at the moment. Jansen assures: "It all depends on two teams because Dirk is also a target of other clubs. A possible reduction in salary to come to Italy? I don't want to talk about money." In truth, Gasp would settle for two more signings, one is a central midfielder and one striker. Of course given no more sales but if by accident, Inter get a ship of money (not yet available) for Sneijder then we'll talk.

Tevez and Forlan But meanwhile, we need to follow the list of Gasp, which is not exclude Dirk Kuyt. And on the top of "I want" list of the coach, there is no Carlos Tevez who has indicated that he does not want to be on loan: an important block to be evaluated. Gasp is obviously aware of the strength of Carlos Tevez, but for his Inter, the third striker would be able to run in conjunction with Pazzini and Milito. There is aslo Forlan who plays as winger for his Uruguayan national team. He is very affordable and acceptable by Moratti. Zarate and Kuyt are suitable in Gasperini's 3-4-3 but have less experience than Forlan. Yesterday, Daniel Bolotnicoff had lunch with Claudio Vigorelli, an intermediary in negotiations for Forlan also crossed paths with Branca. This deal is very doable because Atletico has set the price for sale and it is very low: 5 million.

Lavezzi, the top The fact is that Ezequiel Lavezzi is his favorite because he can do the kind of work that Gasp wants. Napoli want 31 million for him but the idea of Inter is 15 million plus Pandev and they will continue resisting with this. Moreoever, Moratti and De Laurentiis have spoken recently about Lavezzi but the president of Inter in an interview in Forte dei Marmi said: "It can not be resolved as there was a no..." Those are just ancient words because for Gasp, Lavezzi would be perfect.

Zarate Behind the Argentinian of Napoli there are two other Argentinians, Mauro Zarate, whom Lotito is trying to sell to England for 20 million and Rodrigo Palacio whom Preziosi would like to keep unless another player arrives. Mauro Zarate is young and could settle in well in a team full of Argentinians. The difficulties may arise from the relationship between Inter and Lazio due to the transfer of Goran Pandev at zero cost to Inter.

Rodrigo won't go away And what about Rodrigo Palacio? We know that Inter have tried to convince Pandev to chose Genoa. Despite not really in Gasp's plan, the Macedonian does not want to give up Inter. Today, Inter will meet Genoa to talk about exchanging Kucka and Viviano and Palacio's name could slip in. He is a striker that liked very much by Gasperini but much less for Moratti. For the midfield, Kucka's rival could be Jose Manuel Jurado, a more offensive midfielder that Schalke could let go. The figure is 500 thousand euros for loan with right to purchase at 6 million. So everything will be decided on the last few days of transfer market and there are many ways that Inter can take us.


Dynamo Kiev are interested in Santon and he is considering the offer.

Sources from Brazil suggest that Roma are the favorite on Casemiro.

Apparently, in the contract of Eto'o there is also a Ferrari. For Roberto Carlos, it was a Bugatti.

Kuyt: "There's nothing with Inter. I didn't renew with Liverpool for nothing and I am happy here."

Bild (German newspaper): There is also Bayern Munich for Tevez.

Sources from Genoa: "Palacio has said no to Inter. Wants to stay at Genoa."

Anzhi should be in Milan today to close EVERYTHING for Eto'o. He'll have a physical tomorrow in Roma.

Eto'o's agent: "Agreement reached between Inter and Anzhi. Everything will be formalized tomorrow after a medical."

"We chose Eto'o as he's a fantastic player. Now there are only small formalities but we have concluded the deal. Official in 45 mins."

Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio has confirmed it is a done deal for Eto'o.

It's official. Anzhi have announced it. We will only announce it after his physical tomorrow.

According to Pedulla from Datasport, Inter have offered Lazio a loan deal with right to purchase at around 20 million. Waiting for reply...

Official: Casemiro has renewed his contract at Sao Paulo for five more years.

Zarate's agent confirms Inter interest: "There's interest from Inter and I have presented to the president (Lotito). It's a possibility."

24 Aug 11, 07:14


Transfer market: Turning point in the attack.
Moratti has chosen the striker of the Uruguayan national team for post Eto' who will be in Russia tomorrow.
Agreement reached with Atletico Madrid: Five million.



Moratti to look for post Eto'o and the Uruguayan is a step away.
Kucka coming immediately can be done.
Agreement with Atletico Madrid for 5 million, there is a two-year contract for the striker.
Today, meeting with Genoa and could also talk about Palacio.

Milan - There is Diego Forlan for post-Eto'o. Inter have picked a winner to collect the inheritance of the Cameroonian. Yesterday Inter technical director Marco Branca reached an agreement with Atletico Madrid for 5 million euros. And between today and tomorrow, the club will close with the representative of the striker in Daniel Bolotnicoff. The 32 year-old from Montevideo is on a two-year contract worth 4.5 million net per year until 2013 with the Spanish club. The Nerazzurri will propose a two-year with fixed lower salary but appropriate bonuses.

Pressing However, there is good will on both sides. And all of us believe that the white smoke can really be seen in a short time. His candidacy has taken form with each passing day especially after the news that Carlos Tevez two days ago said that he doesn't like the idea of a loan. So that adds even more to his unavailability at City...

Patience Instead, Forlan has more availability and stronger feeling with the senior players of Inter. Especially Cambiasso, teammate at Independiente, has pushed for this solution, vowing not only on his technical qualities but also as a human being. And the president Massimo Moratti has now embraced this solution. Forlan in the past was almost wearing the Nerazzurri shirt but this seems to be the right time.

Crossing Leo On his trail in recent days was also Paris Saint Germain but the acceleration of Inter has led Leonardo to a surprise move and that is asking for Diego Milito. A request immediately returned to the sender. Moreover the same Milito does not appear interested in this solution.

Movement Inter certainly want to make further assessments before moving to other pieces for the attack. Lavezzi and Zarate are being studied by Moratti's transfer market men but you also have to deal with the budget. Deserves a separate mention for Kuyt. "As far as I know, there is no truth in this story. I am happy to be at Liverpool. I just extended my contract for another two seasons only three months ago and it is clear that I have no intention of leaving." But his agent Bob Jansen could be holding an open dialogue with the Nerazzurri.

Genoa and Kucka But there is more for the leaders of Palazzo Saras. And it has been slipped till today the long-waited meeting with Genoa. On the agenda of two clubs are the names of Kucka, Palacio, Viviano and Pandev. The two clubs have been talking for months now with different formulas. For the Slovak midfielder, there is an agreement verbally for a couple of weeks. The original formula included the transfer of Inter goalkeeper (half) in exchange with half of the central midfielder plus a compensation of three million euros. But today there is the possibility that Inter want to get the midfielder immediately. Obviously with the money Enrico Preziosi will reinvest for player like Gilardino from Fiorentina.

Chasing Palacio At the same time, however, the two clubs could speak again of an exchange that the clubs have been working on for months. To Rodrigo Palacio, Gasp is a big fan and it is not a mystery. The Argentinian has already displayed his tactical ideas at Genoa and can arrive at Appiano. Goran Pandev, however, has continuously refused to accept the exchange. Inter are not in a hurry because of the 14 million requested for Palacio, a pricetag that does not convince the Nerazzurri.


Inter are trying to get Zarate on loan but Lotito wants to sell outright.

According to a Dutch newspaper (Ad): Inter representatives have arrived in Amsterdam for Vertonghen. The cost is around 12 million.

Zarate: "It is not true that I want to leave Lazio but living with coach Reja in these conditions is almost impossible."

The only problem, albeit a big one, between Inter and Forlan right now is the wage. Transfer fee doesn't seem to be a problem.

Meeting between Inter and Genoa is going one. Topics include Viviano, Palacio, Kucka, Palacio and Pandev.

De Laurentiis: "Moratti has told me that it cannot be done for Lavezzi due to economic reasons."

Mediaset: Sneijder is Arsenal's priority if they make the Champions League.

Bild (German newspaper): Inter are trying to get Jurado (Schalke midfielder) on loan with option to buy.

Forlan's agent to GdS: "Talking was already a step forward. We will resume tomorrow or the day after. There are details to be placed in all parts of negotiations. In any cases, I will have to leave Milan the day after tomorrow."

Sky: Meeting between Inter and Genoa did not go too well. Genoa are now talking to Roma for Boriello on loan.

Inter have officially announced the sale of Eto'o: "Two unforgettable and good luck."

AS: Agreement reached between Inter and Forlan. Describes agent's denial as a "strategy".

Guardian: Official offer from Newcastle for Muntari.

Zarate's agent was spotted near Hilton Hotel in Milan. New contact with Inter is possible.

Santon or Thiago Motta could be included to lower the asking price for Zarate.

25 Aug 11, 18:02
Many reports suggest that Palacio is very unlikely to come to Inter after yesterday's meeting with Genoa which went badly.

Inter will try to wrap up negotiations for Forlan today. And then, Moratti will try to convince Lazio president to let Zarate go on loan.

There's a good possibility that Pandev will go to Napoli on loan with right to purchase at around 10 million.

CdS: Inter officials will depart for Manchester to talk to... City for Carlos Tevez. Inter still want Tevez on loan with option to buy.

Muntari's agent: "We must close a deal by August 31 because there is no chance for him to play at Inter. We are looking around."

Figo: "Transfer market? Something interesting is about to happen. Forlan? He is a player that we are following and I hope he comes here."

Sky journalist: Agreement between Inter and Forlan for two years, four million + bonuses per.

Zarate: "I want to stay at Lazio for life but our coach told me from the first day of training camp that he doesn't want me. So I'll go."

Sky: Agreement reached between Inter-Genoa for HALF of Kucka. 3.5 million plus HALF of Viviano. They will stay at their club for now.

27 Aug 11, 06:25


The talented player to come now, Kucka in January. Palacio no: Zarate?
The Samp central midfielder arrives on loan. Forlan expects 5 million in arrears from Atletico.

Milan - "Calmly we will do all," said Massimo Moratti. The center of gravity of Inter transfer market is once again in Genoa with Andrea Poli (almost taken), Andrea Gastaldello (just talks), Juraj Kucka (half is taken) and Rodrigo Palacio (now closer to Roma). The moral here is that Inter, while waiting for Forlan to solve economic issue with Atletico Madrid who own him 5 million euros in arrears, have been unleashed.

Kucka yes, Palacio no In the very long meeting that took place in the Nerazzurri offices, Inter and Genoa have defined the purchase of Juraj Kucka: 3 million and half of Viviano for Preziosi. The Italian goalkeeper will remain at Inter this year to recover to his best from the injury. Other than Kucka, both clubs also talked about Rodrigo Palacio. The offer of Inter was 5 million plus half of Viviano to have Palacio fully and half of Kucka (with him staying in Genoa for another six months). Genoa, however, could not be moved from their higher request: 12 million plus half of Viviano for half of Kucka and all Palacio. So the deal went ahead for the Slovak which will remain with the Rossoblu until January. For the rat-tailed Argentinian, it will be hard and for whom now appear a glimpse of Roma.

Poli now and Gastaldello At this point, the question for Inter is how to deal with the fact Kucka is not coming until January? With Andrea Poli, born in '89, a midfielder who, a few weeks ago, seemed a step away from Juventus. The men of Inter transfer market (Marco Branca and Piero Ausilio) have hooked the Samp youngster based on a loan with right to purchase set around 6 million euros after 25 appearances with Inter. Poli will cover one of the demands of Gasp for the midfield and, above all, confirms the desire of Inter to Italianized the team gradually. Another idea for Italianization was Gastaldello, a central defender born in 83. Inter and Sampdoria talked about the possibility of a loan but it seems that in the head of Inter there is only Vertonghen.

Wes and Zarate perhaps But back to the attack: with the almost collapsed hypothesis for Palacio, Inter could now reconsider Zarate. The resistance of Lotito is always there as he wants only 20 million and avoids loan deal. But pay close attention to the developments of Sneijder: the latest reports suggest that Chelsea are on the horizon like two months ago. The Blues want Modric but if it doesn't happen, the Sneijder rumors should start again. Same thing for Arsenal but they are taking Hazard.


The portraits of the Samp and Genoa players.
Andrea, a fantasia midfielder who is a fan of Milan.
Poli can match dynamism with technique, and Kucka is a phenomenon athletically.

Genoa - And to think that as a kid, he was rooting for Milan. Andrea Poli grew up in a youth system of Treviso, has gained success with Sampdoria and is now ready to jump to the next step. Not yet 22 years old, he has already come a long way thanks to his undeniable talent. Poli is a quality midfielder, known to attack and defend, but also knows how to play simple in order to complicate others. The disastrous season last year with Sampdoria certainly made him lose a little confidence, especially in front of goal. In that extraordinary season with Delneri, however, he was able to score 5 times.

English idol Andrea was a very important player in the Italian U-20 and U-21 teams thanks to his personality, one that led him to seek important examples to imitate like Fabregas, Lampard and Gerrard. The characteristic that makes him unique is the ability to combine technical and dynamism: he, in fact, has a touch of a playmaker playing the midfield which allows him to always be into the action. An unfortunate muscle injury was with him a long time last year which made it impossible to achieve ideal form and another small annoyance has slowed him in recent weeks but could be ready in ten days.

Debut The destiny of Juraj Kucka in the Nerazzurri shirt will have an important role. The debut of this Slovak midfielder in Italy took place at the San Siro against Inter in the Italian Cup. It was in January 12 and when Juraj had become a Genoa player for only 24 hours. Kucka is a mixture of strength and technique, not a classic destroyer but one knows how to create, dribble to seek goal scoring opportunities. He's made 17 appearances with Genoa in Serie A and 2 in Italian Cup but he has never scored, however, he was often very dangerous.

Obstacle to overcome In these few months in Italy, he was able to overcome his first major problem: learning the Italian language. From the very beginning, he took lessons from Jana, a native teacher. Now he is able to understand even if he cannot speak with ease yet. During training camp, he always carried with him books and notebooks. Kucka is 24 years old and a true athlete, one that can leave his mark in physical tests: strength and power, expressed by a compact body. A giant stands 186 centimeters and weighs 84 kilograms. With Slovakia, Kucka eliminated the Azzurri from the last World Cup. For him, Preziosi paid approximately around 4 million. On his trail there were Inter and Milan triggering a sort of market derby. With Inter winning this time.

Manzano (A. Madrid coach) announces: "Forlan will go to Inter in the next few hours. It is public and everybody knows what is going on."

Sampdoria sporting director: "The operation has now materialized and Poli to Inter only lacks official announcement. Inter will pay a share now & in June we will meet again to discuss his position with Samp. Cannot deny him Inter."

Genoa president Enrico Preziosi: "Palacio is nowhere near Inter: I would say they have ZERO chance. We didn't think their offer is adequate."

Moratti confirms: "Forlan is coming? Yes, Forlan is sorting out his situation. Also talking about Kucka. Zarate and Tevez on loan? Not a possibility. Sneijder stays."

28 Aug 11, 14:57
Poli took a physical on Saturday. Everything went fine despite a minor muscle problem. Official announcement is on Monday.

GdS - Diego Forlan could settle for 4 million from A. Madrid compared to the requested 5. Everything is ready to close on Monday.

Zarate's agent: "Inter want him on loan with option to buy but Lotito did not accept. He won't let him go easily."

Sky - Forlan, at the LATEST, to be in Milan on Tuesday. Training on Wednesday. Other objectives (Zarate, Tevez) are very difficult.

According to some English source, Newcastle United are ready to offer 15 million for Santon (9) and Muntari (6).

Daily Star - If Chelsea miss out on Modric, they will go for Sneijder with an offer of 31 million plus Malouda.

Agreement reached between Forlan & Atletico. Tomorrow a press conference to salute the fans. Not official but he's now an Inter player.

Sky - Inter only offered 5 million for Palacio. No deal. Now Genoa and Roma are working on an exchange between Borriello and Palacio.

Cittàceleste.it - Zarate is leaving Lazio at 99% BUT Lotito doesn't want to sell him to another Italian team.

Sportitalia's Pedulla: "Tevez is possible last-minute signing. Palacio to Roma is almost done."

29 Aug 11, 07:31


"He's one that can score an avalanche of goals," said the Inter president.
And on Sneijder behind the strikers: "Don't make me talk..."
Meanwhile, the Dutch to go to his national team.



"Pazzini should play. He'll score a mountain of goals."
Moratti is worried about Inter and sends warnings to the coach: Sneijder is better off behind to strikers? Don't make me talk...."

Forte dei Marmi He arrived here on Saturday evening after another defeat against Chievo. A defeat that makes him reflect and think about what to do and not to do. With some warnings towards Gian Piero Gasperini.

But noooo What Inter president did not see at "Brianteo" was what he saw in Geneva precisely eight days ago against Olympiacos and it is the one player that he has always wanted to see: Giampaolo Pazzini and "he has to play because he can score a mountain of goals." He had a serene face as he arrived at Bagno Piero at 16:30 and said "not now, thanks, I don't want to speak." But after two hours, he came out to talk for a few minutes. The subject was not about the players strike, not about Calciopoli nor Serie A but as he was riding his bike just a few steps away from the beach, he paused briefly to reflect on the problems, about the too many goals conceded (10 in the last 4 matches) and about the market. "If I am concerned about the defeat yesterday? Nooo." He is not concerned and that is true but it is not definitive. For the next two hours, he was in Bagno Piero riding his bike. He then came out and there was the willingness to stop and reflect briefly but loudly and at the same time putting Gasperini in alert in view of the new season.

President, given the defeat against Chievo at Monza on Saturday night, do you think a three-man defense is the best for this team?
"Gasperini is working on this and with this type of defense... eventually it will change."

There are no more doubts on Forlan, he is coming for sure right?
"Yes he is coming, he's coming."

Who else can become an Inter player by Wednesday?
"Well, I would say Poli."

What would happen if a mega offer comes for Sneijder who you have said on August 16 and then Saturday night that he is not for sale?
Laughs. "Well, maybe Milan like him."

Joking aside, don't you think that he would be better off playing behind the two strikers so that he can make key plays for Inter?
"Don't even make me started..."

Obviously the two strikers would be Milito and Pazzini...
"Pazzini is one who has to play because he is a striker who can score a mountain of goals."

Then through the intersection of viale Carducci, he looked left and right thinking that Forlan will come, perhaps the defense will have to be revised, a Milito who seems reborn and of course Pazzini. Who has to play. Gasp is expected to find solutions. For Inter, they are expected to start the season with a trip to Palermo (September 11), the debut in Champions League against the Turkish side Trabzonsport (the 14th) and the super game at the San Siro against Roma of Luis Enrique.



The Uruguayan was freed by Atletico Madrid and will sign.
Open with Genoa for the Argentinian striker.

Milan - The word is that Diego Forlan is already an Inter player. Yesterday evening, the Uruguayan striker finally received the conditions from Atletico Madrid that, more or less, satisfied him. And today at 13 he will salute the Spanish fans first before leaving for Milan where he is expected in the evening. This operation has been clear all economic boundaries. Inter will spend 5 million euros for his card and meets the striker with a two-year contract, 3.5 million net per season plus bonuses at 500 thousand per year. His agent, Daniel Bolotnicoff has constantly informed Inter technical director Marco Branca who is working at 360 degrees in Palazzo Saras. The striker made a small discount and manged to get the green light which will allow him to sign this morning. With this deal, Massimo Moratti took home a striker in favorable economic conditions. Forlan will be welcomed with great enthusiasm by the large colony of South Americans at Inter.

Palacio It may not end here. Even yesterday, more signs emerged for the transfer of Rodrigo Palacio to the club of Inter. On Friday, talks were stalled due to the 8 million assessment of the winger whom Gasperini really appreciated when he was with Genoa. But Branca and Capozucca have decided to limit only to the exchange of Kucka and Viviano and by the way, he Slovak has reached an agreement with Inter for four years. Now the turning point of the day: Inter have an understanding with Palacio which gives them the advantage over Roma who is also looking for Borriello's replacement. But if Genoa and Inter cannot come together on the price of his card...

Zarate, Miccoli and Poli Inter have not abandoned Zarate but all contacts have so far been in vain. Lazio president is trying to bind to the loan deal an obligation that Inter have to buy when loan ended. Of course Inter do not intend to accept. In the last hours, Fabrizio Miccoli's name has also emerged but Inter do not appear willing to pursue this striker. Lastly, yesterday Branca also defined the agreement with Sampdoria to acquire Andrea Poli. The 21 year-old will come on loan and sign a five-year contract in view of a purchase after loan.

Official: Andrea Poli is an Inter player. Contract until 2016.

Sky - Davide Santon to Newcastle. He'll sign tomorrow and Inter will make 6 million plus bonuses.

Kucka: "I am still a Genoa player until January or throughout this year, I don't know. It is an honor to have the interest from a club like Inter."

Ansa: Agreement between Inter and Genoa as Palacio is pushing for a move to see his former coach Gasperini.

GdS - Genoa have gotten half of Viviano. The Italian keeper will stay at Inter to recover from injury then he'll go to Genoa in January.

Viviano: ""I'm very happy on how this negotiation ended and for me and Genoa, it's a right to move in January when I'm fully recovered. Genoa believe in me despite my injury so I will re pay in January."

Preziosi on Palacio: "With Inter there have been talks but the same problem remains, without a player in exchange, I won't give him away."

Sky - At this point, it would be very difficult, if not impossible for Tevez to come to Inter.

Moratti: "I don't think Palacio will come. Poli and Forlan are probably our two last purchases in this transfer window but we'll see..."

Sneijder: "The transfer to Inter from Madrid came out of nowhere but we're in a different situation. A transfer now would be very strange. I'm not leaving Inter. I'm well here."

Preziosi: "Palacio is staying at 99%."

30 Aug 11, 15:01
Sneijder: "On Friday night when I play with my national team, I will still be an Inter player. With the sale of Eto'o, the team has received a considerable amount and no longer need to sell me. Diego Forlan? Great player and he'll do well. Rumors on the market: I have to say the truth and that I have always been calm."

Inter have gotten half Lorenzo Tassi from Brescia for around 2.5 million euros.

Genoa sporting director was in Ghelfi's office today to resume talk between the two clubs for Palacio.

There's nothing on the front of Muntari right now and no movements whatsoever according to the agent.

Moratti: "Transfer market? There is nothing to say."

Palacio's entourage: "We think that Palacio will stay at Genoa. The club has refused an offer from Inter but then again anything can happen."

Muntari: "I am an Inter player in all aspects. I expect to continue to be here with Inter unless something dramatic that could lead me to leave this club."

Muntari's agent: "Tottenham and Fulham are among the teams from the Premier League that interested in Muntari. For now, his destination is not clear. The situation must be solved quickly because the transfer market closes tomorrow. Muntari wants to play in the PBL. He likes that league and his family would be happy in London."

Zarate's agent: "For now, everything is in stand-by. Arsenal are closer? No I would say Lazio."

Sergio Zarate, Mauro's brother, pushes for his brother's departure: "The problem is Lotito, he is rejecting all the offers."

Ansa: Forlan has signed but everything will be official tomorrow. Still some minor details bureaucratically that need to be sorted out.

Santon has signed with Newcastle United for a five-year deal. To Inter is 6 million euros.

Sky's Di Marzio: "Inter are just a step away from Palacio. Despite all the denials, Palacio is almost an Inter player. There is an agreement and things could close in a few hours."

Marchetti claims deal for Palacio has been done for days and it's just a question of Genoa getting a replacement before it becomes official.

Report from Turkey suggests of an agreement for Muntari to go to Galatasaray.

Resembles Baggio. Beat the competition from Milan and Juventus.
The jewel: "The decisive contact at midnight between Moratti and Corioni."

Brescia - A contact in the night between Massimo Moratti and Gino Corioni and Inter have got their hands on the young talent Lorenzo Tassi. For the 16 year-old who last May made his debut in Serie A with Bresica in the game against Fiorentina all the big boys were after him. While Milan and then Juve have offered 2 million (plus bonuses which can get up to 10 million), Inter have closed with 4 million, 2 for his half. At about the same price, in euros, that Pirlo was sold to Inter in 1998 (7 million lire).

Lorenzo Tassi, how does it feel to wear the Inter shirt?
"Well, it is an honor. I have always been a Juventino to say the truth but I'm very happy this way."

Juve also wanted you and there is Pirlo.
"It's true, I'm aware of their interest. Pirlo is the example to follow and a Bresiano like me. He's from Flero and I'm from Bovezzo. He then became world champion which is also my dream but I'm 16 and my road ahead is long so I can hope."

Just like Pirlo 13 years ago, Corioni and Moratti made their moves.
"It happened at midnight. Then my agent Tinti called me. Both presidents have found an agreement so I packed up without losing a moment. This is my big chance."

Corioni says that Tassi is the new Baggio.
"Maybe. The president has always had confidence in me. People always compare me to the great champions. They say I'm predestined to be great but I, surely, don't have these illusions. It is up to me to train hard and show what I am worth on the field. Talent alone cannot be enough. Talents in Serie A are many."

But what is the role of Tassi?
"I can do many things: trequartista behind lone forward or two forwards, a second forward, a central midfielder in a midfield of three. I can do well on the left but my foot is the right one. I like making assists and taking free-kicks."

From Brescia to Inter at 16 years old. Who should you thank?
"Roberto Clerici, who was my first teacher. He is in training camp with his youngsters in Pieve di Soligo but I called him immediately. Football is his life and I want the same thing for mine. I also want to thank Giampaolo Saurini. He is my Primavera coach who, this Wednesday night, will have the final of Desenzano tournament. On the field there will also be my brother Matteo. I also want to salute all my friends."

Where will you play at Inter?
"Primavera, Allievi, I don't know. From now on, for me, everything will be a discovery. An exciting adventure awaits me. In Brescia, I attend school of science and sport. Now I will go to Milan and live in an apartment but when I can I will go home to my mom, Rosanna. She is very proud of me."

Connection that cannot be broken.
"Same thing with Brescia. I'm rooting for them to immediately return to Serie A. In the meantime I will try to assert myself at Inter. I have to give it all in order to follow the footsteps of Pirlo."

31 Aug 11, 10:43
Apparently we are in a duel with Real Madrid for Porto midfielder Fredy Guarin according to A Bola and some Italian sources.

Lazio sporting director: "For now, Zarate is ours. Soon, we'll see."

Sky - Inter and Genoa are still negotiating for Palacio. Offer from Inter is 8 million.

Sky Sport UK - Exciting news coming for United fans.

Some journalists in England still believe in Sneijder's transfer to United.

Sky - The other half of Viviano could bring in Palacio.

Sky - Problems for Palacio: Genoa are struggling to find a replacement. If negotiations for Palacio collapse, Inter will turn their attention to Zarate. Contact between Lazio, Inter and player's agent. One of Palacio and Zarate will arrive at 19:00 CET.

Moratti: "I'm not worried about the transfer market but they (Palacio and Zarate) are all good players."

Sneijder's agent: "It is not true that he is going to Manchester for a medial. Does it mean he is staying? I repeat, the issue that I'm preferring to is not true."

Sky - Agreement reached between Inter and Genoa. Now Genoa are looking for replacement and talking to Lazio for Zarate.

Ansa - At this point, Zarate is more likely than Palacio at Inter.

Palermo tried to convince Inter to give Obi up but Inter immediately said no.

Sneijder's agent confirms to FC Inter News that he is staying.

Di Marzio: Branca has agreed terms with Zarate and Moratti and Lotito are looking for solutions (formula of deal) to make the deal happen.

Sky: Zarate to Inter. Loan costs 2.7 million, 15 million after loan ended.

Zarate: "I'm happy to be here. It was a very tough negotiation. Inter are my first choice. I want to train hard and do well."

The idea is that Eto'o has already spoken with Moratti.
Would play in January and February during the break of the Russian league.



A call to Moratti: "I would be on loan for two months." The Cameroonian to exploit the break in Russia.
If he arrives, he could also play in the derby. Possible games: Nine in Seria A and one in the Champions League.

Milan - Whoever thought that Samuel Eto'o is a mercenary who removed the black and blue from his skin in order to earn twice by playing football from far far away is served. He returned to Milan during the international break and the 30 year-old Anzhi Makhackala striker has a crazy idea in his head: back to Inter on loan for two months (January and February) when the transfer market opens and the Russian league is in hibernation. Also because Cameroon did not qualify for the upcoming African Cup of Nations due to a missed penalty by the same Samu against Senegal.

Crazy idea The bomber who scored 37 goals last season, during these hours, has called Massimo Moratti to see if the crazy idea could also be of interest to Inter. And to the club at Corso Vittorio Emanuele, the idea would create a technical problem and as well as economically. The first would be related to the fact of the other five strikers who are already here for the return of a great striker who would guarantee his place in the starting lineup.


Injury risk But if the idea continues to go forward, a born winner can put many egos aside, the real issue is tied to money. Eto'o would return for free but the Russians have just invested many millions of euros for him: 27 for his card and 20 net per year for three seasons. Not only that, billionaire president Kerimov must demonstrate the willingness to accept the risk of possible injury to his star. Because it is one thing to train at Pinetina, but it is other to play an actual match. And here the issues related to insurance would come into play (if something happens to Eto'o, we will have to pay a fee). In short, the situation could only be unlocked if the two presidents are talking directly to one another or their operational main man, namely Marco Branca and German Tkachenko.

What the rules say In terms of regulation, the loan would be possible because the Russian market opens early January and close on March 3, then the second phase of the league. The UEFA regulation also stipulates that a player, in one season, can have three transfers but only between two teams. Eto'o could play nine league games (including the derby on the 15 of January) and the first leg of the Champions League first knock-out round (14-15 and 21-22 in February).

Ties in Milan Eto'o remains tied to Milan. Not only to the Inter world which he has maintained excellent relationships but also wto the city that allows the fashionable shopping that he loves so much. Not by chance that in the recent interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, the striker said that he does not want to sell the house in here and wants to return, other than Paris and Miami, to Milan during the winter break. Perhaps, he will have opportunities to play a few matches.



Anzhi said no but...
The Russians: "Impossible." But gave keeper Gabulov the OK to a similar transaction.

September in Dagestan is the month of weddings, many young people get married in the late summer and you can see many ceremonies with hundred of people in Makhachkala. 13 days have gone in October and there is already talk of a temporary goodbye between Eto'o and Anzhi. Last night, Anzhi have denied it: "It is impossible that Samuel would return to Inter." But bluffing in negotiations in the market is almost mandatory and the negative response to the first few questions is obvious. Also because Anzhi have also done similar operations: at the end of the transfer market, they bought Vladimir Gabulov from Dynamo Moscow for four million euros, the new goalkeeper, and on August 31, they turned him to CSKA Moscow. A rapid and dramatic operation.

Original club Of course, the return of Eto'o would not be an economic problem: Suleyman Kerimov, the 118th richest man in the world, number one at Anzhi, is paying 20 million a year to Samuel Eto'o and does not need to save money for two months' salary. Rather, Anzhi know that Eto'o must be happy who was already fundamental in his first few matches in the Russian Premier League. The team, now coached by Roberto Carlos, in fact has scored... only with the goals of Samuel. Debut in Rostov: 1-1, goal from the number 99. Anzhi-Volga, home debut: 2-1 for the yellow shirts of Makhachkala, Eto'o scored as well as Roberto Carlos. Then Samuel took a break and Anzhi lost 0-1 in Krasnodar and, in the cup, 0-1 at the home of Dinamo Moscow. Over? No. The return of Eto'o's goals coincides with another positive result: 2-2 with Terek Grozny, the derby of the South. Lastly: Anzhi-Lokomotiv Moscow 0-1 on October 2nd. These are the six games of Eto'o in Russia, with a clear balance: Samuel has scored three goals, with one more he would be the top scorer of the team. In short, in Russia people think that if Eto'o wants something, Kerimov will not object. Ivan Tarasenko, journalist of Soviet Sport: "In Moscow, there is still nothing. The news is reported by the Italian sites. But who can exclude it? No one. Anzhi are not a club like others..."

14 Oct 11, 06:26


Moratti does not close the loan: "It is a strange idea. I would say at 90% that it will not happen, however, I am very pleased that he wants to return with us. But at the moment, it is useless to talk about it."



Moratti on Eto'o: "It is difficult but I like it."
"Back to Inter? At 90% it will not happen. However, I am happy that it's his desire to do so."

Milan - Despite the inevitable denials, this crazy idea is finding itself pretty much alive. It wasn't born yesterday but no less than two months ago. Just at the time of the farewell and that basically everybody knew and hoped that it would only be just a goodbye. Inter and the entourage of Samuel Eto'o, since of the end of August said that it would have been nice to spend the winter together. Even when he signed the mega contract that ties him for three years with Anzhi, the Lion King already knew that the Russian League would to into hibernation for more than three months and the failure of Cameroon to qualify for the African Cup of Nations also would create a big hole on his schedule. And Monday, Eto'o was back in Milan and was itching to talk with some of the old friends.

Russian nightmare Yesterday, German Chistyakov, director of the club in Dagestan, went down hard: "Even in a nightmare, it would be impossible to imagine a similar scenario. In the winter, Eto'o will work with the rest of the team ahead when the league resumes." The crazy idea still lives but after the front pages of the newspapers, it is better to leave the clubs to discuss the situation.

The thought of Moratti And now come the statements of Massimo Moratti who spoke last night in a charity event of Inter Campus. "I have just returned from the United States and I saw only the aggressive action from the Russians. But it is good to know that I have not had talks with Eto'o. Is it an idea that pleases me? It's a strange idea and I tend to always respect the agreements with other clubs. A player misses the Inter environment? This can only please me." Also not to irritate the other party, Moratti denied that the idea was born in late August: "When he left, we did not say anything in this regard. In our dressing room he was always well. But at the moment it is useless to talk about it because it is something that will not happen at 90%."

Sneijder's open and agent The players are rightly focused only on the match in Catania but Wesley Sneijder left one message: "If Eto'o returns, it is obvious that I would be happy." The Dutch is a great friend of Eto'o who not coincidentally called him when he returned to Milan in recent days. Finally there is Claudio Vigorelli, agent of Eto'o: "I don't know how this hypothesis existed. And it is a beautiful idea. To Samuel, it would be a pleasure but there is nothing concrete and we did not meet with Inter. Although I imagine that they would like it too. Anzhi, however, have its programs, friendlies and strategies on the market and still do not know their position. They may ask many questions, as for any injury, so it's premature to talk about it. Certainly Samuel would also like to train in Italy." He wants to see the other 10% growing...

Little discounts Facing little discounts, the operation of Eto'o involves significant costs. Provided that Anzhi change the idea and accept to pay for the Cameroonian from January to March. Eto'o is making around 1.8 million in bonuses alone per month but the salary-based income is at one million. That's why Inter must take the equivalent of a cost of six million gross for the two months if the Russian club pretended to pay those monthly payments by the Nerazzurri. But obviously Inter are hoping for a substantial discount on this.

Policies Also there is an insurance polity that protects all in case of injury. The example is when Bekcham came to Milan and he was secured by three different insurance: one from Milan and two from the two banks that sponsor the LA Galaxy.

23 Dec 11, 06:31
Inter are on the break and it's as good of a time as any to get this thread going again for the January window.



The London club to offer 25 million for the Sao Paulo talent.
Chivu to leave in January. Muntari to Palermo?

Milan - Everyone knows the dream (forbidden or not) of Inter is called Lucas Moura da Silva, the universal offensive winger who was born in 92. The Sao Paulo talent can do at least three things: play on the right wing, second striker and a midfielder that can go up and down the field vertically. For these reasons, many clubs like him and he is also quite expensive with big demand from the Brazilian club. Twenty million? It was but no longer so because the continuous demands have increased the price even more than 30 million. The confirmation comes from England with a very serious interference: Arsenal of Arsene Wenger have arrived to offer about 25 million. A price that the Inter of today certainly do not want to spend. But he is the favorite for those at Corso Vittorio Emanuele.

Chivu immediately to Ajax? What about the rest? There is a very clear and persistent rumor surrounding Milan: Christian Chivu could leave the club already in January so that the club doesn't have to deal with any negotiations regarding the contract which will expire in June of 2012. For now there is no confirmation but the rumors are becoming more and more hotter now that the transfer window is around the corner. A few days ago, the player's agent confirmed that Inter have not made the calls for renewal, the calls that will only be for Walter Samuel and perhaps Ivan Cordoba. In addition to the explosion of Nagatomo in recent weeks, a statement was made a few days ago by Franck de Boer, Ajax coach who said that "we want him and he would be great here. I know there is competition from Real Madrid but we have to get his consent to transfer to us." Of course, the player, his new club and Inter must find an agreement for Inter to avoid losing him for free in June of 2012.

Casemiro and Paulinho Now let's go back to the incoming transfer moves. Besides the new left winger that Ranieri would like to have, here are the players that more than just ideas for the midfield: the ballot for right now is between Casemiro (Sau Paolo) and Paulinho of Corinthians. Inter will have two spots for non-EU players and they will have to decide whether or not to take advantage of them. The club of Moratti is in no hurry to get something done and it is a strategy that takes account of the events in early 2012 like injuries, disappointed performances on the field. Inter will use those things to guide them on how to make a move.

Juan Jesus The same deal that involves Juan Jesus. The deal that is on standby but always closer to the conclusion. After the tug of war between the club and the agency that actually owns the player, the figure of about 3.7 million is expected to close the deal. At that point and only then, Inter will decide whether to take the boy to Appiano Gentile immediately to replace Chivu in that left back position.

Muntari, there's Palermo The Nerazzurri also think about outgoing transfers and that of Muntari is above all. Palermo and Borussia Dortmund have surveyed the situation. Sulley would like to return to England and the rest is in progress.


Rumors from England suggests there are Tottenham and Liverpool for Chivu as well. Real Madrid and Ajax are also interested.

From Brazil: Asking price of Paulinho's club Corinthians is at 8 million. Inter have raised offer from 6 to 6.5 million and do not seem wanting to go any further than that.

Paulinho: "I would like to play in Italy but right now I'm very happy at Corinthians and I'm in no hurry."

Lucas's agent: Sau Paolo have refused a 35 million offer. Also denied Anzhi as Lucas will only go to a big club in Europe.

No transfer to Genoa for Milito. Preziosi: "Borriello, Gilardino or Amauri? One of those three will come. I don't have a preference but they are the right candidates for Genoa."

Brazilian source, Futnet says Juan Jesus to Inter is a done deal. The figure is just under 3.7 million.

Sky: Inter will reinforce but only after the Milan derby. Just a way for the management to understand the team a bit more. Also confirmed that Kucka and Juan are at the dead end.

24 Dec 11, 04:40


Inter, win three and there will be the Moratti bonus.
The President has in mind a gift: if the team gets 9 points in the beginning of 2012, he will go after the Brazilian.
10 million for Casemiro but the Nerazzurri are less convinced.

Appiano Gentile - The bonus is ready and it is called the Moratti bonus. Inter, however, have to earn it with facts and points: by winning the first three games of the new year, including the derby. Nine points at the dawn of 2012 - against Parma, Milan and Lazio, all games are at the San Siro - would not only give Inter more hope in terms of the Scudetto but with those nine points, Moratti will go gift Ranieri Lucas Moura da Silva, the top player on the transfer market list of Inter. He is an expensive talent with strong resistance from Sao Paulo. At least for the time being.

More points, more trust Yes because the transfer market will depend on how the team performs because the more points the more trust Moratti will have in Ranieri and the current players and with that, he will look to reinforce the club even further with a gift. Lucas Moura da Silva (born in 92, Sao Paulo player who is able to play left, right, second striker or even as a midfielder) is the type of player who Ranieri would love to have. A type that is young but ready to contribute and has the characteristics that Ranieri is asking for. Lucas is a dream that costs a lot of money but with a little bit of stimulation, Moratti could really open real negotiations with Sao Paulo. "I am counting on the return of Sneijder and Forlan and also on Moratti as the president will do something," said Ranieri.

Hard but not impossible Having said all of this, here is the braking although not definitive from his agent Wagner Ribeiro: "If Lucas were to leave Brazil, he would land at one of the best clubs in Europe. He wants to go to Europe but it is still early. In three years, he would be 22 years old and that will be the right moment." We will see. Certainly Sao Paulo are asking between 30 and 35 million, a figure is just simply too much for Inter and perhaps even Anzhi and Arsenal.

Casemiro Another talent from Brazil is Casemiro but in the last few hours, Inter seem to be less convinced about the player as before. Yet, it seems that with about 10 million euros, the Sao Paulo midfielder could leave that is according to the club president Juvencio who said: "Casemiro, who shined in the Coppa Sao Paulo, became a starter and was with the National team, has great demand in Europe. If a good offer comes, I would sell him: 10 million euros would be the right value."


Sources from Argentina suggest that Racing want Milito in January.

Muntari's agent: "I am working to bring Sulley away from Inter and there are a several concrete ways of doing that. I hope a deal can go through for Sulley. We are working on it."

Romulo Borges Monteiro, Vasco da Gama midfielder, was one of the players that Piero Ausilio laid an eye on during his scouting trip in Brazil.

Juan: "The deal is almost completed because everything has been fixed. I hope to be in Italy soon."

AS: Inter could ask Barcelona for Afellay in January.

26 Dec 11, 16:34
Lucas's agent: "I had three official offers from Inter, Liverpool and Chelsea, three good proposals. Sao Paulo have been very clear, however, that they do not want to give up Lucas and have turned down all three. I believe that discussions for his sale will resume in June."

Motta's agent: "We'll see if he stays in June but he would love to renew. Inter will start discussing in April and then it's up to us."

Fernando and Guarin, Porto midfielders, are still options for the Inter midfield along with Romulo and Paulinho. Liverpool also have a strong interest.

A bunch of teams are interested in Chivu: Ajax, Real Madrid, Napoli and Liverpool.

Gazzetta links us to Lucas Ocampus from River Plate. Bayern and Juve are also interested.

Ansa: Very close to Juan Jesus in a deal worth about 4 million. In terms of outgoing transfers, everything is possible including the departure of Wesley Sneijder.

Repubblica: Kucka is not coming to Inter as he is more destined to be with Lazio. Many names for the midfield but Branca will have to make his moves with little money.
According to La Nazione, Juan Vargas will go to Inter.

Farfan's agent: "I often read that there are many Italian teams interested in him and I believe he would do well. But I think it is unlikely that he will leave in January. He is recovering from a knee injury and he wants to continue the rehabilitation in Germany. But he will change team at the end of the season."

If Ranieri doesn't stay, then Spalletti is ready for June.
Moratti's caution: does not want another Leonardo case.
Rumors of a pre-agreement with the coach of Zenit.

Milan - It's just a rumor that start bouncing and spinning. Inter would take a very cautious approach with Luciano Spalletti if Ranieri does not decide to complete the two-year agreement reached with Moratti on September 22 last year. Spalletti has an expiring contract and sources from Russia suggest that he will end his Russian Premier League stay in May. Moreover, the toscano coach has always been an obsession of Massimo Moratti who already wanted him for post Mourinho and also last summer. Between Spalletti and Moratti, there has always been respect.

Signings or goodbyes It is not the first time that Inter approaches the name of Spalletti. It had happened one summer ago, before Gasperini and after the departure of Leonardo. Nothing came out of it however because the contract of the former Roma coach inhibited Moratti. Today, however, that contract is dwindling and there is even some talk of pre-agreement between the parties. In addition, the latest words of the coach may seem like a door that is opening: "I like St. Petersburg and I will continue working for my club. In order to grow however, we need to strengthen and we need at least two major players. We need to improve otherwise I will have to resign. It is time to seek class players." Clear statements even if Zenite general manager Maksim Mitrofanov kind of plays it down a little bit: "Ever since he is here, Spalletti has always had the interest from other clubs. However, since the agreement was proposed by a formula of 3 +2, which means that we have a long term project." But that agreement has not yet to be unlocked.

Champions League order Perhaps we have to see how these months will play out. Meaning: Inter will have to sit in the third spot because participating in next season's Champions League has been deemed as essential and it is a clear order of President Massimo Moratti. Claudio Ranieri has been able to reactivate a team that had been playing with the handbrake on in such a long time by leading them to fourth consecutive victory, 18 points in their last seven games and especially the Champions League knockout round. Massimo Moratti is grateful for this coach but it is also true that he expects even more just like Ranieri expects reinforcements from the transfer market.

For the future Ranieri has always behaved correctly with the club: never dictates any market moves to the public, something that was done by Benitez and Gasperini. Ranieri is looking at the players who can provide depth and speed: "the right players and not so much spending." But it is hard to find those players at reasonable prices and perhaps his stay for next season might also be uncertain in terms of transfer market moves in January. Ranieri has a two-year deal in his pocket but he will have a chance to decide whether or not to do an encore for next season. In case of goodbyes in June, Inter would not want to have another Leonardo case and it is normal things that a big club plans for its future. And that plan could be Spalletti. More likely now than in the past.



Meanwhile, Chelsea ask Moratti: "Do you want Malouda?"
Juan Jesus: "I'm coming soon." Follow Wellington.

Milan - Do you want to know the type of player who would be perfect for Claudio Ranieri? Dirk Kuyt, the Dutch of Liverpool and the one that Benitez tried a year ago and Inter decided to not buy because demand was too high. Let me be clear, the signing in January will not be the Dutchman because Inter have only one name in mind, to be repeated ad nauseam: Lucas Moura, the all around player of Sao Paulo. Inter will try to get him as early as January. In the recent past, there has been statements made by Lucas during his days with the Selecao that he would like to play with his idol Sneijder. Meanwhile, his agent said that "Lucas has received offers from Inter, Chelsea and Liverpool." All were turned down, he adds. But until when?

Malouda, Juan and Wellington Certainly there is one question to ask: what if Inter are not able to get the talented Brazilian? Here we would have the alternatives. After receiving phone calls for Farfan, Moratti's club also received another call and this time from London. The subject is Florent Malouda, Chelsea's winger. The age and price, however, cool any idea of Inter trying to take a shot at him even if the player's contract expires next June. But Inter are working on other departments of the team and not by chance that they are almost done with Juan Jesus ("The deal is almost done and I hope to be in Italy soon. Inter are just a dream.") While another report comes from Brazil: the case of Wellington Luis, a midfielder born in 88' and former Twente player.

Reus, Schurrle, Mertens But the question to follow is always the same: are there alternatives to Lucas? Of course yes and the tracks lead to Bundesliga and Eredivisie. Inter are also keeping an eye on Andre Schurrle, Bayer Leverkusen winger and born in '90. There is also Marco Reus of Borussia Monchengladbach whose contract will expire in 2015. Another alternative is Dries Mertens, PSV winger. All alternatives and all are expensive.

Jonathan for Lucas? Sao Paulo are looking for a right back and they have asked Flamengo for Galhardo but the answer was no. So Inter could really offer Jonathan Cicero because Castaignos and the Brazilian could leave Inter already in January. The Brazilian is very appreciated at home and Sao Paulo understand that.


Chivu's agent: "Bunch of false rumors. We are not negotiating with anybody."

Torino want Obi on loan but it is unlikely that Inter will let him go because Ranieri has great appreciation for him.

Tuttosport: Inter helped Napoli to get Vargas. In exchange, Inter can negotiate for Lavezzi in the summer. Cost: 15 million plus Pandev.

Daily Mail: Sneijder to salute Milan and go to England in January. Possible teams are Manchester United, City, and Chelsea.

Lucas's agent to Sport Uol: "Offer from Chelsea was 30 mil while 20 for Inter. Both were unnecessary because S. Paulo don't want to sell."

Borussia Dortmund are interested in Muntari and would offer a two and a half year contract. It's up to Muntari now.

Sky: Transfer market meeting between Inter management either today or tomorrow. Inter absolutely want another winger and close for Juan. After Juan and a winger, it is totally up to the generosity of Moratti if he wants to make one or two more signings.

Sky: Inter cannot go any further than the 20 mil offer for Lucas. S. Paulo don't want to give the boy up so right now, it remains a dream.

Juan Vargas (Fiorentina) is not on the top wish list of Ranieri. Older, many injury problems, doesn't have characteristics that he wants.

Di Marzio (Sky): Milito leaving in Jan. is a possibility. The problem: his wage is way too much for the teams that are interested in him.

M'Vila's agent: "M'Vila is worth 20 million and hasn't decided where he wants to play next. In Italy, Inter and Milan like him. Now we will have to see what club has the money and what club can convince him."

Apparently Inter have acquired half of Marko Livaja from Cesena. He is likely to join next week however he is here to strengthen the Primavera team of Stramaccioni.

29 Dec 11, 04:12


Voices from England suggest United and Chelsea to make an approach.
Ranieri is waiting but if he is not having a great January then he could leave.

Milan - There is no peace for Wesley Sneijder. The genius of Utrecht has always been approached by other teams on the transfer market and he hasn't been able to play for more than a game since last November 2nd in Inter-Lille. There is no peace because within hours before the restart of the January market, his name appears to be among the "non-untouchables" at Inter. So is it possible? No because of what was said by Ranieri recently ("He is our pride") and yes because of the rumors of the transfer market.

Ferguson's no? After the torments in the summer (United and City), after he admitted that the club did actually put him on the market ("Then they closed the deal for Eto'o. I'll remain here and happy"), after the fact that Gasperini played him anywhere but in his role and then, now, after a forgettable start to the season with many injuries, Wesley Sneijder is now back in the middle of the rumors. What was the latest? Well, news from Manchester ensure that two weeks ago Inter spoke with United about Sneijder and Sir Alex Ferguson said no.

If Hiddink... The fact remains that the Dutchman could have another sleepless period in this upcoming transfer window. Because it is not a coincidence that rumors from London ensure that Chelsea also have Sneijder ambitions. Some time ago, the club of Abramovich had targeted the now untouchable Mario Gotze and now Wesley Sneijder could also be in the thoughts of Villas Boas because there is the need for a creative midfielder. Another factor that should be considered is that after leaving the bench of Turkey, Guus Hiddink is looking around knowing that Abramovich would love to have him as a technical adviser despite the hesitance of Villas Boas. Hiddink during his time at Chelsea before the Portuguese last summer in fact did have Sneijder high on his wishlist.

January sprints? Rumors are rumors but Sneijder is doing well in the city of Milan and can not wait to return perhaps to play in the derby on January 15. In addition, Inter have had him very little this season: only six games in Serie A (last was Inter-Juve on October 29) and three in the Champions League. This has been a very tough season for Wes. Too tough. So it is all too normal to assume the dilemma at Inter at the moment: either Wes has a super January or Inter would consider any proposals.

Juan, Damiao, Perotti Meanwhile, there are two other rumors at the moment besides Juan Jesus deal could be successfully concluded in early January. The first concerns a friend of Juan at Internacional Leandro Damiao: last summer, Inter made a strong proposal for him but it was refused. Second concerns Diego Perotti, an 23 year-old Argentinian winger with Italian passport who is playing for Sevilla in Spain and has Inter interested. Juve wanted him a summer ago but stepped back due to the 20 million request. Today the Spanish club is asking about 10 million. Of course, Inter have Lucas in their head and if Lucas becomes impossible then Perotti (just like C. Rodriguez, Mertens, Reus, and Schurrle) would become an alternative.


Lucas: "Europe? I'm fearful of not being able to adapt to the new habits, culture, people. It would be a completely different life. I've always said that I want to win a title w/ this shirt. I'm happy here, in my city, my country, close to friends and relatives. I don't know if I would be willing to live in Europe today. Sure, playing there would be a dream but it's not the right time."

Milito: "Returning to Racing is more of a dream that a reality. I'd love to return where I started but none has talked to me, & no offers. I have a contract for two and a half years and the truth is, I'm very happy at Inter. Returning to Racing is not something that I'm planning. But football is so dynamic that no one can guarantee what will happen."

Corriere della Sera: Inter (Ausilio to be specific) are keeping contact with Leandro Damiao. Ausilio will leave for Brazil again once Zarate returns to Lazio. Inter will invest that money for the Brazilian striker.

Di Marzio: "No Inter offer for Vargas. Inter are looking for a winger but no indications that it would be Vargas. Lucas remains a dream."

Marca: Perotti's agent has revealed that he is in talks with many clubs. However, none has proposed a formal offer. Inter are interested.

Chivu's agent: "It would be very difficult to imagine him leaving Inter in January. In June? it would be much more simple. Inter will make further assessments late March for next season and they will decide on Chivu then."

30 Dec 11, 08:28


The defender is in stand-by because the club wants to use the non-EU spot with a striker.
In place of Maurito.

Milan - It seems like since November 26, the count down for Mauro Zarate has begun. From that day on, the Argentinian striker would have to score goals and provide some concrete stats to remain at Inter. Those numbers have to be enough to convince Massimo Moratti to pay 16 million to Lazio in next June. Today, it now seems that the countdown has already been down to zero.

End of loan? Mauro has a curriculum from September to December that only can be improved: a goal in the Champions League, none in the league and the latest game against Lecce, he was watching it from the stands. In addition, he has been substituted out the most time at Inter due to Ranieri's frustration. "His problem is mentally," said Ranieri on Christmas day and there are even some rumors that Inter and Zarate can part ways as early as January. And if that happens, it would be a resounding rejection.

Lucas said... This premise would lead to the hypothesis related to Lucas Moura da Silva, also known as the Chosen One at Inter headquarters. His arrival would not be considered as "plus one" but instead he would be the true replacement for the Argentinian. Possible? Impossible? Who knows but he has certainly not fulfilled the expectations while Lucas (who said "perhaps it is not the right time to change my life as I'm fearful of not being able to adapt in another country") is on the top of Inter wishlist. Bearing in mind that Inter have two non-EU slots available.

Juan and Dybala And here is where Juan comes to play. The possibility of Inter spending a slot on Juan is very much in doubt. Juan Jesus is young and not a priority and he could arrive in June. Those two non-EU slots would be required for an extra midfielder (perhaps Paulinho) and for Lucas or whoever is his alternative (the idea of Diego Perotti of Sevilla is growing). In short, watch out for surprises. Meanwhile, Zanetti suddenly becomes a sponsor for Paulo Dybala, the young Instituto striker. "A pure talent and can do well in most teams. Even though that he is young, if a club takes him and gives him the right trust, he can pay off big time."


Juan's agent: "The deal with Inter has not been defined yet but I believe the official OK will arrive on Jan. 10. We are talking with Inter as well as Milan but I can guarantee that negotiations with the Nerazzurri are much more in advance and concrete. Surely he will sign a five-year contract starting from the time of his signature."

Corriere dello Sport: Inter to challenge Milan for Paulinho. But keep an eye on Cristian Rodriquez and Marko Marin.

Lazio don't seem convinced about Kucka either due to his injuries.

Lecce are thinking of Viviano on loan for six months.

FC Inter News reports that Inter have requested information about Lucas Ocampos of River Plate. The cost is somewhere around 15-16 million.

Lucas: "Inter want me? To me there is the Copa Libertadores to be played first with Sao Paulo because the fans deserve it. I hope that I can win major trophies. And then, I will head to the Olympics and only then I will think about my move to Europe."

Krasic's agent: "Milos wants to play and right now, he is not allowed to do that. No official contact with Inter but they would be a welcome destination for Milos."

Estadio Deportivo: Diego Perotti doesn't know anything about the rumors of Inter and he doesn't plan to leave Sevilla in January.

Ranieri: "Sneijder should not just be a player in this club. He should be our leader, our conductor, one that takes us by hands and leads."

31 Dec 11, 04:59


The 19 year-old Sao Paulo player who is liked at Inter, is already famous.
Has a psychologist and sponsors.

Milan - A so-so physic, but with that, an extraordinary power. Lucas Rodrigues Da Silva Moura, 172 cm and 66 kg, is the only player that Massimo Moratti could become crazy for in the January transfer window. The Sao Paulo attacking midfielder is predestined for greatness. He is playing for the club that has sent the likes of Kaka, Luis Fabiano and Hernanes to Europe and locked him up with a 80 million release clause. A symbolic and crazy figure.

"Calmly" But to bring this talented player, who is the future of the Selecao with Neymar, Ganso, and Damiao, to Inter, 20 million is hardly enough. With at least 25 million, then parties could start talking so Inter must begin saving money by not buying Zarate fully at the cost of 15.5 million euros. The boy yesterday said: "Inter want me? I'm calm. First I want to win Copa Libertadores and the Olympics."

Poverty and nickname Lucas is liked because he is young, fast and technical. But in addition, he is a very good kid. Growing up in Jardim Miriam, the toughest suburban area of Sao Paulo, has shaped his character. "When I lived there, I remember waking up at nights to the gun shots from the drug traffickers." Always supports his father Jorge, a former Ford worker and mother Maria de Fatima, a hairdresser, Lucas started going to a school of Marcelinho Carioca at six years old, which gave him the nickname. "Marcelinho was my idol at Corinthians but in 2005, I left the club and became its enemy by joining Sao Paulo. Then I asked to be called Lucas again."

Hobbies and curiosity He loves the Internet, Facebook, Twitter and Orkut which has just became the most popular social network in Brazil recently. On Twitter (@Lucasrm37), he has about four thousand fans. In addition to his mom's feijoada, he also loves pizza and pasta. Music wise, he is crazy for samba and pagode. He has just renewed the contract until 2015 and making 600 thousand per year. Managed by his father with whom he is living together with this 21 year-old brother Thiago. "They completely manage my finances and leave me to have 3000 reais (about 1200 euros) per month." Then there are the advertising contracts. Because in addition to his father and agent Wagner Ribeiro, there are three other men who manage his image. Along with Neymar, Lucas is voted as the most recognizable face of "9ine", a sports marketing agency founded by Ronaldo. As if that was not enough for a 19 year-old, Lucas employs a psychologist made available by the club and a personal publicist. Among his "sponsors", there are the former Torino player, Luis Muller ("Lucas should only grow in experience, but in terms of technical skills and personality, he is already out of the ordinary") and Luis Fabiano, his current teammate who said: "He is serious, polite, has very athletic strength. He reminds me of Kaka. He makes the game easy like he has the ball glued to his feet."

Explosion Started out as a Futsal player, Lucas arrived at Sao Paulo at 13 years old. The club then paid for his studies, gave him a house and made a physical development program. In 2010, the investment started to produce the fruits. The year started by winning the Copa Sao Paulo de Futebol Junior and ended by winning a starting spot in the first team. In 2011, here comes the explosion. In February, he scored his first goal in Copa Paulista and, in the decisive game against Uruguay, he gave Brazil the South American Under-20 Championship with a hat-trick. And by doing so, he convinced Brazilian national team coach Menezes and made a debut at just 18 years old on March 27 against Scotland. Just as Menezes completes the transformation tactically. He was born as a winger but Lucas is now used as a trequartista. A role, in perspective, would be the one of Sneijder. The kid has tremendous speed and great technique. He is not a classic game director as Ganso but he can play a variety of positions in the attack. At 19 years old, the margins for improvement are obviously enormous especially on the defensive end.

Idols Rogerio Ceni, Sao Paulo goalkeeper and scorer with more than 100 goals, is one of the true idols of Lucas. "Our captain is an inspiration for all. At 38 years old, he has won it all and is always motivated." Ceni is the reference of Lucas after his parents, separated but always on the side of the boy with the mother who is willing to transfer to Europe with him. And when Moratti decided to become crazy, that days of moving to Europe for Lucas and his family could be numbered.


Romulo's people are saying there are no concrete offers. He is on vacation now and will return to Vasco de Gama soon. They describe Inter's interest as "informal rumors."

Casemiro's agent: "He doesn't want to leave." Casemiro: "Transfer market? We'll see. I'm just enjoying the holidays and the sea."

Calciomercato.com suggests that Zarate could replace Gilardino at Fiorentina.

Apparently Ganso's agent is offering him for 20 million: Inter, Napoli and Roma are interested. Others are PSG and Tottenham.

From the Netherlands: "Chivu to return to Ajax."

It seems like Castaignos is going out on loan to Bologna to partner up with Di Vaio. Other clubs interested are Siena, Novara, Cesena and Parma.

Il Giornale: Lavezzi is another dream of Massimo Moratti, just after Messi.

Il Mattino and TuttoNapoli.net: Vargas is destined to be Lavezzi's replacement after the departure of Eto'o, Zarare's flopping, Inter are looking for a type of striker like Lavezzi. Castaignos could also go on loan as well as Milito so it is clear that Lavezzi is now one of the desires that Inter want.

03 Jan 12, 03:56


Possible blitz by Branca to Manchester to talk about Wes with United.
In June, it's time to go after Pocho. Stankovic, sirens from the USA.

Milan - The answer from Inter to those possible signings at Juventus or at Milan is very clear and it has been for days. It is Lucas, the man whom Massimo Moratti will try to take as early as January in order to go hunting for the Scudetto and to invest heavily for the future. A tricky business not only because of the transaction costs but also because Lucas, before taking big steps to Europe, would like to play in the Sao Paulo shirt in Copa Libertadores and the Olympics with Brazil.

Sacrificing Wes The fate of Lucas could also be linked to Wesley Sneijder. The Dutch is the man of hope for the Scudetto but he's one that Inter can raise cash with in order to focusing on the Brazilian youngster. Inter have long made no secret that, facing a reasonable offer, no one is not for sale. It remains unlikely for Wes to leave in January but news from England suggests that Branca is coming in the next few days to Manchester. City are well covered in that role so we could have another flashback of Manchester United.


Zarate on the wire It is obvious that the possible sale of Sneijder would make it easier to "close" for Lucas who is playing as a trequartista for a while now but Inter will try regardless of Wes. Lucas, whose release clause is at 80 million, costs at least 25 million. If Sneijder stays, then Inter would not pay the 15.5 million for Zarate. The Argentinian in the next couple of games will be given the last chance to avoid being cut as early as January. Either him or Castaignos could leave Milan later this month.

Lavezzi for June Due to possible departures of Maicon and Sneijde last summer, Inter were working on Lavezzi. Napoli, last summer, had a strong clause on the Argentinian at 31 million euros and they also refused an offer of 18 million plus Pandev for Lavezzi. Then, the Macedonian went on loan to the club of De Laurentiis, confirming a good relationship between the two clubs. So again, Inter are working on Levezzi for July and there will be big competitions from Spalletti and Mancini.


CdS: Inter to offer 25 million for Tevez. After Moratti's call to Mancini, Branca has also called the English club. In the next few days, there will be another meeting between the two parties.

Daily Star is also reporting the same thing that is Inter have come into negotiations in view of small problems between City and Milan. Offer is 25 million.

CdS: Zarate could return to Lazio as early as January.

Montolivo seems to be going to Milan according to GdS so no Inter.

Pandev's agent: "He wants to stay at Napoli but right now there aren't any talks about that yet."

Lucas: "We will have a lot of fun in this upcoming season at Sao Paulo."

DeLa: "Lavezzi? Our jewels are untouchable. Besides, no one has called me yet. Perhaps it's just a game from agents to attract attention."

Gianluca di Marzio from Sky confirms contact between Inter and City (Branca and Marwood) about Tevez. Moratti, who is still on vacation, will decide at later date. Milan, meanwhile, are studying other ways to close deal soon.

Juan Jesus: "I believe that I should be in Italy on January 7 or 8. We are only missing my signature and the official presentation."

Di Marzio: Caldirola to Brescia on loan.

Sky: Inter could possibly beat the offer from Milan for Tevez. Inter could offer to pay for his loan with right to purchase while Milan's offer is only a free loan. Also according to Sky, Milan are quite annoyed with Inter and their recent moments regarding Tevez.

04 Jan 12, 08:01


Moratti could also secure Juan Jesus as soon as January.

Milan - Lucas Moura to Inter in January is not easy but it can happen. It depends on many factors. First is the transfer market and it also depends on the generosity of Moratti. In other and more specific words, the arrival of Lucas Moura to Inter depends on Zarate and the upcoming Milan derby.

The dilemma of Lucas Why is it not easy? First of all, because he costs so much. It is difficult to imagine anything less than 25 million for Lucas even though at the young age of 19 years old. Even with that age and the possible salary of around 2.5 million euros a year: this signing would be in line with the club's philosophy that intends to focus on young talent. But it is not easy because Lucas, before arriving in Europe, would like to try to win the Copa Libertadores with Sao Paulo and the Olympics with Brazil. No coincidence that yesterday, on the website of his club, he reassured the fans: "They will see a more motivated Lucas, with more joy and desire to play football." Lucas is just not rushing to land in Italy.

Locked up for July Inter have not said much about it but the club has been on Lucas for a while and may want to make this signing as early as January but only to lock him up safely for July. There are two options on how to get closer to Lucas: one is to convince Sao Paulo to sell immediately with a formula that allows many payments later on, or decide to make an immediate sacrifice. Winning the derby on January 15 would be another indicator to convince Moratti to make a major investment immediately. But Inter would not have any trouble putting Zarate on the plate and sacrifice him.

Meeting Bozzo-Zarate To whom? Maybe to Fiorentina of Delio Rossi after the transfer of Gilardino to Genoa. But the Argentinian's agent, Beppe Bozzo, will deepen the discussion with his client tomorrow. In the meantime, it is a certainty that Inter are already prepared to give up on him in January. If not Zarate then it will be Castaignos but strictly on loan: Bologna and Cesena are interested as well as Everton.

Juan Jesus And if Lucas doesn't come right away? At that point, rather than an offensive player, Inter could focus on a midfielder: in Brazil, Ausilio has seen and initiated contacts with Romulo (Vasco da Gama), Ralf and Paulinho (Corinthians) while Kucka (Genoa) remains a hypothesis for immediate reinforcement but only on loan. Always on standby, however, is the central defender Juan Jesus which surely will come in the summer (three central defenders will be out of contracts then: Chivu, Cordoba and Samuel).

Caldirola to Brescia Outgoing transfers: Inter would like to keep Viviano who is desperately to play and has some interest from Palermo. Caldirola is close to Brescia, his preferred club compared to Bologna.


CdS: Inter to offer 25 million for Tevez. Will begin making payments starting June.

Pandev: "It's either I'm staying at Napoli or going abroad but one thing for sure is that I'm not coming back to Inter. I like Spain and I know that Sevilla like me."

GdS: Guardiola is still undecided on the future. Therefore, Inter are lurking around the corner.

Tevez's agent: "Never spoken with Inter about Tevez. The only club in negotiations is Milan."

Tuttosport: There's the yes from Ranieri for Krasic.

Lavezzi's agent: I have not received any call. I'm still on vacation in Buenos Aires and I prefer not to comment on the rumors in the newspapers. Next week I will be back in Italy and I will have my say then..."

Zamparini on Viviano: "We don't need a goalkeeper now as Benussi is doing very well and perhaps something will be done in June. Viviano? He is a very good goalkeeper. I would take him outright but I don't think Inter want to let him go."

Sport Mediaset: "If Guadiola leaves Barcelona, Inter will be in pole position to get him."

Official: Luca Caldirola to Brescia on loan.

SkySports: Inter are back in aggressively for Tevez. The club is willing to offer a permanent deal which is the preference of City. Installments would begin in the summer.

Kucka: "I don't know anything about moving to Inter in January. I'm focused on my team, about recovering from injuries and getting better performance wise. Personally, I would prefer to stay at Genoa. Lazio rumors? Complete inventions."

Sneijder: "I'm staying at Inter at 90%." Meanwhile, Sky has revealed that United are backing away from the Dutch star.

05 Jan 12, 07:42


The two teams divided by Calciopoli may find themselves around a table to negotiation for the striker.
Meanwhile, Wesley Sneijder to the Dutch newspapers: "Staying at Inter at 90%."



Contact between the Nerazzurri and Juventus, but Roma are also alive for the striker.
Meanwhile, the Dutch sows uncertainty: "Staying at 90%."

Milan - "Could Inter be interested in Krasic?" "And what if instead of Krasic we talked about Quagliarella?" It starts here, with just some informal talks between Inter and Juve although for now only in an indirect way, the name Quagliarella is now in the air and getting hotter. A first contact between the two clubs will turn the dialogue a little bit more concrete: Fabio Quagliarella to Inter at the last minute is a story full of "if" but it could become the true novelty at the end of January.

The hierarchies of Conte The only certainty is that, today, the Juventus striker has many eyes fixed on him: with the arrival of Borriello, the spaces in the attack will be further reduced and the "non transferable" status that Quagliarella has had, as Juventus also recently reaffirmed by its leaders, could become less obvious with each passing day. Here is the first "if": in the next two, three days, Conte will re-evaluate his offensive options. With Borriello, Quagliarella could lose much playing time and the club would then consider and evaluate the interest from other clubs on the former Napoli player. All even more so if Juve fail to realize the negotiations of selling Iaquinta.

Priority Lucas Roma yesterday, after the serious injury of Osvaldo, have entered the race as the Rome based newspapers suggested. But Inter are keeping its radar turned 360 degrees, so they wouldn't find themselves unprepared at the end of January. The primary objective remains Lucas, perhaps the only player for whom Moratti might be willing to make a financial sacrifice. Inter are still looking for a formula that satisfies Sao Paulo without spending all 25 million at once as the Brazilian club has asked for its talent.

Sneijder uncertain For the arrival of Lucas, there are also many ifs and this does not preclude that Inter to look for other tracks. Again, one of them could lead to Quagliarella. It also depends on whether or not Inter are willing to make a financial sacrifice by selling one of its star. It is Wes who knows that it is difficult to leave Inter before June 1 but transfer market rumors are just endless. So much so that in an interview with a Dutch magazine, Voetbal International, he leaves a small margin of uncertainty about his future at Inter: "Staying at 90%."


Motta's agent: "There are no noises abroad and his desire is to stay here at Inter. Renewal? There haven't been any indications of a contract renewal coming from Inter but he is fine here and the relationships are excellent.

The Sun: Marco Branca to meet City this morning. The offer is well known by now at 25 million.

Gazzetta: Tevez only wants Milan and today, his agent and Galliani will meet again to work out a formula for Milan to avoid the obligation of paying for him after the loan.

Repubblica claims that Tevez has told Galliani that he is not coming to Inter and only wants Milan.

Gianluca di Marzio: "Quagliarella is not on the market and not for sale. Juve want to sell Amauri, Toni and Iaquinta but not Quagliarella.

Tuttosport: Inter are not only in England for Tevez and Sneijder, they are also in for Malouda. The Frenchman has an expiring contract and could leave as soon as January.

The meeting between Branca and City is nothing more than a survey. Inter director just wanted to understand the figures of this operation. Milan remain the huge favorite.

Tevez and agent to meet with Galliani. Agent: "The deal is now a bit more complicated for Milan but there's only the Rossoneri. I haven't heard from Inter since last August."

Muntari's agent: "It would be absurd to stay at Inter when there's no playing time when there are a lot of request from Italy and abroad."

Maicon's agent denies PSG rumors: "The boy will continue working at Inter, happily doing so and this marriage will continue going ahead. He is and will remain an Inter player and will win at this club again."

Krasic's agent: "My client will talk to Marotta tomorrow or the next day to try to understand what the real intentions of Juve are. Are they looking to play him again, sell or loan him? He has not had much playing time lately and there are clubs like Chelsea, Inter, Tottenham and Fenerbahce as well as three Russian clubs that I can not name follow him."

Marco Branca: "There were no discussions whatsoever regarding Wesley Sneijder today during our meeting in London with representatives of Manchester City."

Flashback of Ferguson: he's ready 30 million of euros.
And Leonardo for the Brazilian can go up to the figure of 18 million.

Milan - It is very difficult for Wesley Sneijder and Maicon to leave in January and yet around them there have always been noises and rumors especially in the last few hours as new hypotheses have been formed. Inter have not changed their mind about their two champions (Eto'o case has taught us well) that there is no one that can be regarded as "not for sale." However, for those players like Sneijder and Maicon that can have a great positive impact, the club will only accept the right offers. The cash from those right offers will allow immediate reinvestment: perhaps focusing on younger players with lower salaries.

Flashback? The crisis of Manchester United, exacerbated by the heavy loss against Newcastle United, is the key to a new attempt by Sir Alex Ferguson to bring Sneijder in Manchester. The Dutchman was his biggest objective in the summer of 2011 but Ferguson wasn't successful after spending 48 million pounds on De Gea, Young and Jones. In late December, Ferguson said that: "It is not written anywhere that we have to buy players. If whoever are coming, they will only be top players." That is Wesley Sneijder. United need a player with his characteristics, one that can light up the midfield. That is why in England, there are talks of an imminent offer of 25 million pounds, with the possibility of climbing up to 30 (30 to 36 million euros).

"Wes-City? No." At Inter, at least for the moment, there is no news of an official offer for Sneijder from United. Instead, Inter through the voice of Marco Branca, made reference to the other side of Manchester by clarifying and emphasizing on the club's website that "there were no discussions whatsoever regarding Wesley Sneijder today during our meeting in London with representatives of Manchester City." Inter would definitely consider any offer for Sneijder and perhaps to reinvest that cash for the talented Brazilian Lucas. Vice president of Sao Paulo, Adalberto Batista, said yesterday that: "He, along with Luis Fabiano and Rogerio Ceni, is not for sale even if great offers are coming."

Denial And speaking of offer, it seems that there is one coming from Paris Saint Germain of Leonardo for Maicon: the talk of yesterday was 15 million euros, plus another 3 in bonus, but at that time, this hypothesis had received nothing but total denial from the Brazilian's agent: "I can categorically exclude it. There isn't any type of contact or negotiations under way, not with PSG, or with any other clubs. Maicon is and will be an Inter player." If in the next few days, PSG really put on the table an offer as requested by the Nerazzurri and at least, both clubs will talk about it. So what is the possible replacement for Maicon? Inter could think of Caceres. For the Uruguayan, there is also Juventus in view.


GdS: Milan would have to sell a player in order to land Tevez. Inter's offer is a loan with the obligation to purchase.

CdS: Agreement in principle found between Inter and City. Only missing the yes from Tevez. Everything could be defined by Monday. For Milan? City refuse the Rossoneri offer.

Tutto Mercato Web: Due to a lengthy suspension of Suarez, Liverpool could be thinking of Mauro Zarate on a temporary basis.

Marco Barzaghi: "Moratti is at Pinetina. After lunch, he'll focus on the transfer market with Ranieri, Branca & Ausilio."

Marcel Van der Kraan from Talksport: "Sneijder cannot just say that he wants to leave because he is earning a lot at Inter. If he earns less then dealing with United would have been much easier. The problem here is not the transfer fee but it is his salary."

Romulo's agent: "Inter like him very much and he is one of those players that they are evaluating with great attention. The problem is the cost as Vasco are asking 6-7 million euros, a figure that at the moment only a few teams in Italy can afford."

Maicon's agent: "He's staying? Well, no one is looking at him and if they do then they should knock on the doors at Inter. If Inter reach an agreement and Maicon wants to leave, which is not the case, then we all could reach an agreement.

Gazzetta: "Today there was a meeting at Appiano Gentile between the Inter president Moratti and technical director Marco Branca. Officially, the reason that Moratti at Appiano was to watch the team preparing for Parma but Branca did take the opportunity to update him on the Tevez situation. Despite an attractive offer to City, the main obstacle (almost insurmountable) remains the will of the player is to go to Milan at all costs."

From Argentina: Inter are waiting for Tevez's response entering Tuesday.

Ausilio: "Palermo haven't asked about Viviano so it is pointless to discuss about this news. In addition, the boy is not leaving."

Di Marzio: "City are scheduled to respond to Milan's final offer on Tuesday and indications suggest that City are leaning towards saying no. Meanwhile for Inter, Moratti has said yes to be more involved in this deal. Inter's offer is loan with obligation to buy at approximately 25 million euros."

PSG to outbid Inter and Milan with a 35 million offer for Tevez. Tevez, however, doesn't really like the destination.

07 Jan 12, 04:56


Negotiations for the Argentina have become more and more like an international intrigue.

Milan 24 - Galliani's proposal: loan with right to purchase at 24 million which is related to the sale of Pato or Robinho. Have the yes from Carlitos.
Inter 25 - Moratti authorizes Branca to relaunch for the Argentinian: loan with the obligation to buy at 25 million.
PSG 35 - The French variable: Paris Saint Germain's sheiks to offer 35 million for immediate purchase.



From Moratti is the OK to the 25 million. Galliani is annoyed while here come PSG.
The Argentinian is training and in a hurry to close. Could have played already in Coppa Italia.
City need the money for De Rossi and the Rossoneri still have the advantage in this auction.

Milan - Five hours of talking with Milan and then the phone call from Inter. It was such a strange Thursday in Brazil for Carlitos Tevez who was alongside with Adriano Galliani in Rio de Janeiro to try to close with the English club. Even more strange is the effect of Inter who have raided the dialogue between Milan and City with the 25 million offer after the bliz from Marco Branca to London. The Inter technical director was able to find the backing from Inter President Massimo Moratti yesterday during a meeting at Pinetina. Then lastly, there is even Paris Saint Germain which complete the entire story.

The auction Sheikh Mansour at Manchester City is handling the sale of his striker with a textbook strategy. Mancini wants to hold an auction for the highest possible price in order to have the funds to immediately take Roma's De Rossi. But the club in Corso Vittorio Emanuele is back in the game and after the premature exit of Juventus for Tevez, it is clear that Inter are the best alternative in Serie A which is the chosen league of the Apache.

The firmness The will of Tevez is still Milan and the trip to Rio de Janeiro proves his choice. That picture full of smiles at the restaurant called Gero in Ipanema is the manifestation of a common will and not only that. The conference call with City's executive chairman, John McBeath, did the rest. Milan took the opportunity to formalize its new proposal, entirely new: free loan with right to purchase at 24 million related to the sale of one of the Rossoneri strikers. Galliani has agreed to buy Tevez permanently before August 31 (this summer) if Pato or Robinho changes shirt in the summer. Leonardo has been lurking around Pato for quite sometime now and this where the clause comes in. But it's true that the moves by Inter have greatly complicated the plans of the Rossoneri and Adriano Galliano does not hide his annoyance.

The phone call So what does Tevez say about this? Well, at least he is surprised. Especially in the light of the call arrived at the end of the meeting with Milan. Marco Branca, after the conversation on Wednesday, called Kia Joorabchian and informed him of the offer given to City. Tevez then flew back to Buenos Aires with his girlfriend Vanesa to continue working and training hard for his new team.

The race In his new residence, he has all the conditions to train at his best. In the morning he jogs on the bench and then to the guy for more intense workouts. The training is scheduled with his personal trainer to become fit as soon as possible. In the meeting with Galliani he said that he is ready to take the field already mid January and there is also a specific date: January 18. That is when Milan will play against Novara at the San Siro for the Coppa Italia. We also need to point out that the Nerazzurri will be on the same field in the same competition a day later against Genoa.

The reserve Tevez wants to test the true extent of the recent attacks by Inter. Given that Carlitos is not interested in French solution, now he has to deal with a new solution. In fact, the proposal from Inter is the more favorable for City. More than one more million and Moratti's formula is that he has to pay the 25 million in the summer. Nevertheless, Galliani does not change his cards on the table. He cannot spend more especially if this is just a bluff by Inter. So the offers from the Milanese clubs stand as they are. And with them, McBeath will give his response between Monday and Tuesday and only then, new cards would be played.

The revival For Inter, precaution is in order. Branca has the mandate to spend 25 million but not getting involved to much in this auction. So Inter right now are just kind of feeling the pulse of the player and with the return of Kia Joorabchian in Europe shortly after the weekend, things will be more clear. The risk of a fiery derby does not suit anyone which is why Inter prefer to move under the spotlights. It is true that last summer Inter were in advanced talks with Tevez but today, he has a strong agreement with Milan. So nothing can be taken for granted. The late resurgence of Inter proves that Massimo Moratti wants to spend again. Those 25 million for Tevez in any case would be immediately invested for an alternative target of equal level.


Newspapers like AS, Sport and El Mundo Deportivo are reporting that Barcelona are very interested in Diego Forlan after Villa's injury.

CdS: Inter could make a 27 million offer for Tevez & they would pay it in multiple installments. To Tevez is 6 million plus bonus per year.

Galliani has announced that he has an agreement with Tevez just like we all expected.

Word is Inter or more specifically Branca has called Kia, Tevez's agent. Tevez, meanwhile, wouldn't refuse Inter.

Romulo's agent: "I'm just waiting on the Tevez situation to resolve itself. I could meet the Inter management in a few days, perhaps within a week because if they were to buy Tevez and Juan then there would be no more room for another non-EU player so this is the waiting time."

Moratti: "I haven't had lunch with Tevez. Milan are irritated? Well, I see you (journalists) later..."

Premium Calcio: 27 million for Tevez which will be divided into four installments PLUS the fee for loan. Contract duration is two years and City will respond early next week.

08 Jan 12, 07:34
For Tevez, next week would be very decisive as Inter are waiting for definite answers from City as well as player's agent.

CdS: It's either today or tomorrow Inter will fly again to England and talk to City. The goal is to put pen to paper with City as the English club is asking 30 while Inter's offer is at 27.

The strategy of Milan, reaching deal with the player first, is annoying City. City have rejected Milan's offer of free loan and right to purchase at 24 million. And they also don't like the picture between Tevez and Galliani.

According to the Mirror, Tottenham and Liverpool will ask for Castaignos on loan.

Spanish newspapers now say that Barca are not looking at Diego Forlan.

Daily Mirror: City have accepted the offer from Milan. The formula for that offer is that Milan have to buy Tevez if he plays at least half of the remaining matches.

Talk Sport reports that Sneijder is already in talk with United to find agreement on the salary.

We seem to be in pole position for Paulo Dybala one of the new stars in Argentinian football. Inter will try to close this deal for June.

Marotta: "We have reinforced the attack (with Borriello) but I can categorically deny selling Quagliarella."

Report is that Tevez or no Tevez, Massimo Moratti has given Branca green light to make a major signing this transfer window.

Sky: City will reject Milan's latest offer for Tevez and there is a written offer from Inter on the table.

GdS: Moratti will spend a substantial amount this season and it's either for Tevez or Lucas. For the Brazilian, Inter could lock him up and bring him here in June.

Pedulla: Milan have strong agreement with the player while Inter's offer convinces City more. Now Inter will fly to England and close everything with City and at the same time convince Tevez's agent to break negotiations with Milan. For Milan however, due to the latest rejection from City, they could be forced to change their formula to obligation to buy Tevez in the summer.

Juan situation: Juan will be an Inter player but why isn't he coming to Milan to close everything soon? Well, the reason could be due to the negotiations for Tevez and Romulo. Inter have two non-EU slots remaining and those could be saved for Tevez and Romulo.

Sky: If the news of City rejecting Milan latest offer is confirmed, then Galliani could modify the proposal with the green light from Berlusconi.

Agent: "No sign of a contract renewal for Chivu. I haven't received any offer but Chivu will definitely stay here until at the end of season."

According to Rai Sport, during Domenica Sportiva (Sports talk television show on Sundays), there was talk of an extremely irritated Al-Mansour, Man City owner, about that leaked picture of Tevez and Galliani.

09 Jan 12, 04:15


Moratti is ready to offer more than the 24 million from the Rossoneri.
Milan, however, are waiting to make a move...

25 million offered by Inter for Tevez already in January.
24 million offered by Milan to buy Tevez in June.
35 million offered by PSG to buy all of Tevez now.

Milan - Manchester City have not made any announcement but everything is leading one to believe that the English club is determined to reject this "fantastic" offer, as described by Galliani, sent from Milan after the meeting on Thursday in Rio with the Apache. So what now? Inter are walking the walk as they are ready to formalized the offer of free loan with an obligation to purchase at 25 million euros. Massimo Moratti has authorized Inter technical director Marco Branca to move and everything leads one to believe that things will happen between today and tomorrow.

New hand Just like in a poker game at the table with four contenders, so far City have gotten a hand to play and wath all the events unfolding themselves between Inter, Milan and Paris Saint Germain. So in this virtual challenge of nerves, who has the best cards in hand? The certainty is that this week (the one that leads to the derby) will clarify the real force on the field.

Milan At this time, the Rossoneri are at risk of being overtaken by Inter as the favorite to land Tevez but in Via Turati, they are still thinking positively. It is not a coincidence that Galliani is avoiding making public statements and controversy with Inter but the fact is that he doesn't like this late resurgence of Inter. Milan still feel a strong support of the player while Inter have yet to open talk with him and his agents despite recent calls from Branca to Kia Joorabchian, the player's agent.

The dialogue The representatives of Tevez are still in Sao Paulo waiting for news from City to regulate what to do next. Meanwhile, Carlitos continues to train hard in Buenos Aires and has his own count down. Zlatan Ibrahimovic today after the game in Bergamo said that: "If we get Tevez, we will help him score too." Flattery techniques of convincing the player but there is economic aspect that needs to be considered.

Moratti Meanwhile, Inter are doing their own evaluations. They are clear that they would not enter into any bidding war. One thing is to make life difficult for the cousin, and another is to enter into an auction that could be bloody. Let's be clear Inter will increase the budget but not very much. Both Inter and Milan have their own weapons to put psychological pressure on each other. So right now, it is only right to continue following the next steps with great caution. Despite Manchester City continue pressing PSG to involved, Argentinian's entourage is very clear: "Carlitos has no intention of playing in the French league. He wants to come to Italy." And that is, at least, the one certainty in all of this.



CdS: Inter have a grip on Tevez: agreement almost ready. With City, agreement of 25 million plus bonuses. Now must convince Tevez.

Meeting between Branca, Moratti and vice general director Filucchi. The purpose: to prepare a definitive written offer to present it to City.

Now Angelo Mario Moratti, Massimo's son, has also arrived at the meeting.

Word is Tevez is not the only topic of discussion during this meeting.

Moratti: "We are trying to figure it out what can be done and if it can be done. Our interest (in Tevez) is NOT a joke. We've got the information to understand how things are and there is room to do something here. Now we must wait and see. Alternatives? We still have 20 days left..."

Gazzetta: Still no Inter offer but it is definitely coming.

Sky: Inter are serious on Tevez. A verbal offer has already been presented and within a few hours, Inter will send an email with that offer.

Di Marzio: "The meeting lasted for about 2 hours and Moratti is prepared an offer (loan with an obligation to buy). It remains to be seen the total cost however, it could be 22 million plus bonuses to make it 25 or 25 plus bonuses to make it closer to 30. Meanwhile, Milan are waiting for the no from City which hasn't arrived yet. Galliani is ready to modify that offer to somewhat similar to that of Inter and ready to relaunch it."

Sport Mediaset: Inter have reach an agreement with City for Tevez: free loan with an obligation to buy at 27 million. Next up is player's salary.

Corriere dello Sport: Moratti is bringing Tevez to Inter. "This is not a joke, this is a good operation and we have 20 days to close it."

Mario Sconcerti: "I was convinced that Tevez is going to Milan because of the agreement. But when the agent is willing to sit at a table with Inter, everything changes and City do not want to please Tevez."

Sky: The official offer from Inter for Tevez is 25 million PLUS bonuses. So it could go up to 30 million. Milan will wait and see.


Sky: Preziosi and Moratti have given the OK for Palermo to have Viviano on loan for the rest of the season.

From Spain: Inter have made important steps for Dybala but Real are also interested and they will make some movements this week to study how to bring this young talent to Spain.

Sky reports that Ralf, 27 year-old of Corinthians and once was scouted by Ausilio during his trip to Brazil, is going to Lazio. Ralf was never in pole position for the Inter midfield.

Brazilian media: Inter want to bring Romulo, Vasco da Gama midfielder, in January and are willing to put on the table 8 million euros.

Di Marzio: "There is no such thing as a pact between Inter and Napoli (Inter let Napoli sign Vargas so Napoli can let we have Lavezzi. However, it is not secret that Inter really like Lavezzi and in the summer they offered 15 plus Pandev but it was rejected."

Motta's agent: "Yesterday, there was a meeting between my father and Branca but there wasn't talk about a renewal." Motta's contract is going to expire in 2013.

Pedulla from Sportitalia: "There have been behind the scene contacts with Mauricio Isla. He is not coming in January but he could arrive in June as those contacts have confirmed."

10 Jan 12, 05:34


Moratti sends the offer. To City is 25 million plus bonus.
After the meeting with Branca and Filucchi, the decision was formalized.
This expense would go to the budget for next year.

Milan - Twenty-five million plus bonuses. Overall, about 27 million. This is the battleship that Massimo Moratti has moved in the early hours of this morning. A big fax was sent. Recipient: Manchester City. Inter's offer is detailed and strong, and makes them real contenders to sign Tevez. Absolutely.

There's room The confirmation of this offensive move by Inter arrived last night about 7:15 pm when Inter president has officially opened the door for Tevez: "We don't do anything just for fun; if we do something it's because we think it could be a good deal. It all seems normal to me: we were interested in finding out how things stood, if there was any room for manoeuvre. We'll see if we're successful, if we can bring him here or not. It's not a question of being optimistic or not, just waiting to see what happens."

Old preference Manchester City could like this proposal very much just like the player who could be very interested in Inter. Because those statements and words which make him so desirous only Milan were true, but they were also outdated. When Inter started to get into this whole situation by sending Marco Branca to England to do a quick survey, that is when Tevez started to kind of balance it all by putting Inter on the same level as Milan after decisively rejecting PSG as a hypothesis.

The budget and Cambiasso Yesterday, things were busy and heated in the afternoon: after having returned to Milan from his vacation, Massimo Moratti called a transfer market meeting in Saras. In attendance were Inter technical director Marco Branca and vice general director Stefano Filucchi. The meeting started at 5:30 pm and lasted for about an hour and 45 minutes. Any potential deal would not be for this year budget but for the next instead. But what came out of the meeting was that the bonus part of the offer should not exceed 2 million. In the meanwhile, there is Cambiasso in this whole situation who said that: "Tevez? I do not care about any photographs (reference to Galliani), because what matters are the contracts."

Derby, Zarate, Kolarov So now let's talk about outgoing transfers. If Inter really signed Tevez, then Zarate (his name has been brought up for a long time) will be the number one candidate to leave Inter. And what if Tevez doesn't arrive? "For any alternatives, there will be time. There are still 20 days until the end of the window," said Massimo Moratti. However, watch out for another contact between Inter and Manchester City for Kolarov in whom Inter had great interest a couple years ago and also because Chivu will not renew his contract which expires in June. "The derby? It is an important week and we have to stay focused. I was pleased to see the team played like that against Parma because it gives us even more serenity of mind in the next few days."



According to Corriere dello Sport, there is a connection between Massimo Moratti and Kia Joorabchian, Tevez's agent. Kia's father, was able to have the hospitality from Inter and use Appiano Gentile to practice. There was even a friendly game between the Iranian national team and Gigi Simoni's reserve team.

GdS: Moratti's offer hasn't arrived yet but is should be there at noon: 25 million plus bonus.

According to Sport Mediaset, Tevez has said no to Inter because he wants to play with Ibrahimovic.

Gazzetta: Email from Inter with offer for Tevez has been sent. Cost is 25 plus bonus. Now negotiations will officially start.

GdS: "Shortly after 17:00 CET, Inter have made the official step by ratifying its offer to Manchester City for the Argentinian. No fax, but an email containing the proposal. The Nerazzurri want the striker on loan until June, with a purchase price fixed at 25 million PLUS bonus which is not over 2 million."

Sky: Milan are still waiting for the official response from City. In meantime, they hope that Tevez doesn't want to open talk with Inter.

StudioSport: Milan could sell Pato to PSG now in order to make way for Tevez.

Sky: There's a strong agreement with City. There's also first contact with Tevez who has expressed his will to respect the agreement with Milan. Inter do not seem worried and still believe they can convince the Argentinian.

StudioSport: A phone call from Massimo Moratti might be needed in order to get the yes from Tevez.

Ansa: Inter have a slight advantage over Milan because City prefer their offer more than that of the Rossoneri.

Gazzetta: Coming is a 28 million offer for Pato. If he is sold then Tevez should be the replacement.

According to Sky Italia, Inter will soon schedule a summit with Kia Joorabchian in order to agree personal terms for the Tevez deal.

Gazzetta is confirming latest news from Sky with headlines: "Inter? Let's talk."


Galliani is pissed off and just for revenge, he is going to go after Inter target Dybala.

Zamparini and Viviano have found an agreement. The official announcement is coming this week and the goalkeeper could be available for Mutti, Palermo coach, at the end of the week.

Lavezzi's agent: "The arrival of Vargas doesn't mean Lavezzi is leaving Napoli, there is no such connection. Lavezzi is well here and very motivated after the break. The player was purchased in order to follow the project of De Laurentiis."

Genoa director denies agreement with Viviano: "I disagreed with that I have read. There's no agreement. To understand if the deal can go through or not I must speak to my president and discuss it with Inter."

Faraoni's agent denies possible loan in January: "I can categorically deny a loan move in January. I heard from him after the goal and he was absolutely delighted."

Rumor is Liverpool want Castaignos. Inter are open to discuss the transfer but only on loan and we also don't want Liverpool to have the option to buy him either.

Zamparini on Viviano: "The negotiations for Viviano's transfer are almost concluded." Viviano is going on loan to Palermo.

Spalletti: "I will extend my contract with Zenit for another two years. Italy? Once I'm back, I'd love to coach Fiorentina."

Isla's agent: "Branca and Inter like him very much and there should be meetings for a summer deal, but he won't move in January."

11 Jan 12, 05:52


Another derby as there is not only the game on Sunday evening.
From Inter an email to City: 27 million for Carlitos.



From Inter is the 27 million, an agreement with City would come at 30?
But Milan have one more reason to resist.

Milan - As expected yesterday, an email started it all. Starting at the hour of 5:00 pm in the evening on January 10, Manchester City and Inter have officially started negotiations to acquire the Argentinian on loan with an obligation to buy. Carlitos Tevez has begun to heat up these pre-derby days. It has now begun.

You again Monday In all of the rumors, there is one that keeps circulating which is Tevez does not want to come to Inter. That is one rumor that wasn't confirmed by Inter and even in the words of his agent, Kia Joorabchian. Last night, he had a chat with Inter technical director Marco Branca confirming the arrival of the official proposal and the appointment in a few days to evaluate everything. The parties feel that Monday, after the derby, would be a good day and in the meantime, Branca and Brian Manwood will continue discussing their strategies.

If Pato leaves... But Milan are certainly not here to twiddle their thumbs especially since the acceleration of PSG on Alexandre Pato is serious stuff. It is clear that with the transfer of the Brazilian to France, the money would steer Milan on the right track back to Tevez. Meanwhile, Galliani is studying another proposal which could be a free loan with conditional purchase if by August 31, one of his strikers in Pato and Robinho leaves then Milan will buy the Argentinian striker.

Figures Inter have made its move: with the email sent to City, Moratti has confirmed the figures of this deal, 25 million euros plus bonuses which should add about 2 more million to the fixed cost. The formula, as widely reported, is loan with an obligation to buy in June. Massimo Moratti has been an admirer of Tevez for years and speculations suggest that with a phone call, Moratti could unlock the situation. Inter and City will continue hearing from each other but it is normal to think that the figure launched by Inter could have its own retouches.

Figures with retouches? Last summer, Corinthians even offered 40 million euros for the Apache and it is also conceivable that Tevez could be worth more than the 27 million total placed on the plate by the Nerazzurri. So here are the scenarios that could open up: City want to push as high as 35 million. Despite the desire and how "this is not a joke", Inter are not willing to jump over the 30 million mark and that could be the meeting point for these two clubs.

Let's talk In short, we are in the heat of the derby. Milan are there as well as Inter. One thing seems certain: having just learned from the interest of Inter, Tevez said: "Okay, let's talk." And this would be discussed. As a matter of fact, there's so much to talk about.



The Germain of Werder is the alternative to Tevez or Zarate.
The Slovak on loan.

Milan - The voice is loud and clear from Germany. But also from Genoa. But first things first: the rumors from Bremen are that a survey was done on Marko Marin, Werder Bremen winger. While rumors from Genoa suggest that Inter have not fully put aside Juraj Kucka who is playing very badly and seeing the field very little.

Alternative The Werder Bremen is liked at Inter and has been so for a long time. Marin is a number 10 with characteristics of a winger. He has a value of 10 million euros and loves playing on the left side in an attacking trident. Most importantly he has what Ranieri is looking for. Sources from Germany have confirmed that Inter have eyes on him, the 22 year-old born in Bosnia and but nationality is German. His contract expires in 2013 and he could be the alternative even in January if Tevez doesn't come and if Zarate leaves soon.

Reactivation Now is Kucka. He is being benched and booed at by Genoa fans. But Inter have not exactly put him aside yet. In fact, they have always convinced that they can capture the other half of him from Genoa if needed. The moral here is that Kucka idea for January has not disappeared. About Castaignos: in Italy, Cesena and Bologna want him and from abroad, Everton, Fulham and Granada are interested.



CdS: Inter have offered 25 million plus 5 million in bonuses for Tevez. A figure yet to be confirmed but it should surely convince Manchester City.

Tevez said that him rejecting Inter is just an invention and his potential move to Milan is just a preference dictated by a good relationship with Galliano. But now Inter are ready to play its own card as they will meet with Kia Joorabchian in the coming hours.

According to Argentinian media, particularly Merca Futbol, the idea of going to Inter is growing at this time because of the many Argentinians reside in Appiano Gentile.

Tuttosport: Milan could put in half of Merkel for Tevez an idea that Genoa have dismissed because they don't want to sell the player.

Sky: Galliani has scheduled a trip to Manchester to talk to City.

Galliani's trip to Manchester is gonna seal the deal for Tevez. Kia is there waiting and Galliani is traveling with an intermediary.


Sky: There are some minor problems between Viviano and his potential loan move to Palermo. The deal seemed done but now Genoa have asked Palermo to buy half of his card. Keep in mind that Viviano is co-owned by Inter and Genoa and the Rosanero only want him on loan. Viviano has found an agreement with Palermo and another meeting is scheduled for tomorrow.

Apparently Lazio and Muntari's have been talking. Lazio are interested but more importantly, they have Muntari's approval. Other than Lazio, there is also Genoa.

According to Secolo XIX, Juve have requested information for Kucka and could think about getting him in June. Inter are thinking about it but everything will be discussed with Genoa in a few days.

Romulo's agent: "Inter like Romulo very much as Ausilio followed him to Brazil a while back. Vasco are asking for 7 million. But I think Inter have to resolve this Tevez situation first. Inter have two non-EU slots left so we must see how matters will end on Tevez and Juan: if both were coming here then there would be no room for Romulo."

Vasco vice president: "Romulo is one of our better players. He is growing and very important in the structure in this team. Therefore, it's not in our will to negotiate to sell him. And I also want to be clear that there is no agreement with Inter, not even exchange in information."

Capuzucca, Genoa director: "Kucka is a mystery for us. Last season, he gave us so much satisfaction and now he seems like a different player. We will speak with Inter to see what is best for the boy. We are both owners of his card so we are just trying to understand things."

Sky: Genoa to sell half of Viviano to Palermo.

Sources from Germany continue to ensure contacts between Inter, Werder Bremen and Ramadani, Marko Marin's agent. New developments could be soon.

Daily Mail: Liverpool are ready to go after Luc Castaignos and get him on a loan move. More updates are coming soon.

Word is Faraoni will renew contract with Inter until 2015. There will be some adjustments for his salary. Official announcement is tomorrow.

From France: After Maxwell, PSG want also Maicon.

Sky: Milan have locked Muntari up for next season. He is joining them in June at zero cost.

12 Jan 12, 04:02


Inter can take the former Lazio wing back right away.
Ready an offer for the young Argentinian start. Forward for Marin and Kucka.

Milan - Milan have made an counterattack on Tevez. So if the Apache were to go and play with Ibra, what will happen at Inter?

Kolarov Inter are having a talk with Manchester City for Kolarov in a deal that could happen very quickly for compensation: Chivu will not renew his contract in June and the former Lazio player would be a good option if the Romanian is leaving in January.

Marin The non-arrival of Tevez would make Inter to go for the many alternatives that they have. The number one is obviously Lucas, the one player that Inter have a lot of obstacles for. Then there is a strong survey for Marko Marin, current Werder Bremen winger: "Yes I have heard these rumors too: news of this kind are always nice but today there is nothing concrete with Inter." The 22 year-old Bosnian but with a German nationality has a value of just over 10 million and he doesn't seem happy with his current role as a trequartista.

Kucka and Romulo The Nerazzurri are not abandoning those names for the midfield especially if PSG are now interested in Thiago Motta. The name of Kucka is increasingly on the rise ("We'll talk with Inter to understand what is the best for the boy," said Genoa director Stefano Capozucca) while the ideas related to Romulo are resurfacing. His agent said that "Romulo is liked very much at Lazio but Inter are the favorite. His value is about 5 million. Vasco da Gama do not want to sell but if a good offer comes..."

Dybala Getting noticed during the past holidays season by Javier Zanetti, Paulo Dybala is an objective of Inter. And for the striker born in '93 who is playing for Instituto (second division in Argentina, 9 goals in 18 matches), Moratti has personally made the move. On Dybala, who will have an EU passport, his mother is Polish, there are also Napoli, Palermo. Milan have been lurking around but Inter will present a new offer.



GdS: Milan to close for Tevez and give up on Pato. Galliani flies to City with a new offer: 25 million plus 3 in bonus. Galliani has changed the formula: this time it will be an obligation to buy. Carlitos is just a step away from Milan.

About 27 minutes ago at 10:01 CET, Galliani and his partners have departed for London. Objective: Carlos Tevez.

Milan have noted of the decision by Pato (to stay at Milan) and have stopped the dialgue with City. The ball is back to Inter's court.

Sky confirms: Pato will stay at Milan. The Rossoneri have retired from pursuing Tevez.

Word is Pato has refused a transfer to PSG. Galliani is now back in Italy and all negotiations with City have stopped.

Galliani: "Pato is staying at Milan and that is what he has decided. Tevez will not come to us and now the competition can come forward."

Sky: Inter can go back to Tevez and close everything in a hurry while hoping the millions from PSG cannot convince the Argentinian.

Sky: Inter of course have learned about the latest developments regarding Milan, Tevez and Pato but will not make any move until after the derby on Sunday. This is also because City haven't responded to our offer yet. But Inter are there on Tevez.

From France: PSG will relaunch. It is difficult for Tevez to go to PSG because he has made indications that he does not want to go to Paris.

It seems like we are not willing to go all the way for Tevez either. There's hesitation on our part and so right now, it's gonna be the Milan derby on Sunday before anything else can happen.


PSG are waiting for the arrival of Pato. Then, they will focus on three new targets: Thiago Motta, Maicon and Kaka.

In the meeting between Inter and Parma, their leaders have asked for Jonathan as well as Obi. Now that Maicon is back at full strength, Parma are looking to take advantage of it.

Sky: Jonathan is coming to Parma on loan with option to co-own him in the future with Inter.

Di Marzio: Agreement reached between Inter and Parma for Jonathan. Tomorrow Parma reps will meet with the Brazilian to discuss personal terms.

Sky: Strong interest from PSG for Thiago Motta. Maicon, however, will not leave for PSG because of Jonathan's arrival to Parma.

Sky: If Motta is leaving for PSG, then Inter would buy the other half of Kucka and bring him here immediately. Milan? They have Muntari.

SportItalia: Obi is not leaving Inter in this transfer window as it has been confirmed by his agent.

13 Jan 12, 05:22


Moratti to stop at the 27 million proposal to City.
Relaunch for Apache if they beat Milan.

Milan - So now what? Milan are keeping Pato and Tevez is still on the market. Well, what to do now? That is the question that Inter will be pondering in the next few days. Big question: varied, calm and without any anxieties. The main point is: do they go for the Apache now or wait a few days like it's been agreed? Starting since yesterday, the Nerazzurri will now have many questions that need to be answered. Not only that in the midst of all of this, they also made a deal with Parma (Jonathan on loan) but at the same time put on the plate options and possibilities, strategies and countermoves for the future. The cause of these questions was of course the news that Alexandre Pato is staying at Milan. Because before it at 14:00, Moratti did not seem disappointed but resigned to the idea: "Tevez to Milan? I think so," said the Inter president as he was leaving his offices in Saras. Then, the world has turned. And Tevez is still left in the game. Now a move from Inter is expected.

Three points equal Apache? In all of this the morale would be that a victory in the derby would give the long-awaited momentum to Moratti to pursue the deal while a K.O. would put everything into question because for now the offer has been made to City (25 million plus 2 in bonus) without real contacts with the player. Inter are precisely waiting for one thing: the response from City on their proposal, a response that may come during these hours or on Monday after the derby.

Nine points and gift Massimo Moratti would be more likely to give the fans a gift if there's a positive turning point in the league: nine points between Parma, Milan and Lazio, could give him the spark to have a transfer market that is capable of giving the competition a warning and to raise the technical point of view in the team. Nothing is decided, of course, but chances are the idea in this case could be concrete. The main idea is Lucas but there is a block on this situation because the player would only want to leave after the Olympics in London. At that point, given the door ajar, Inter will think of Tevez again trying to understand the real possibility of acquiring him for themselves and Milan.

Benefits Financially, the Nerazzurri are optimistic knowing that any expenses would come in next year's budget in the summer and there are important outgoing transfers like Chivu and Muntari to make that mountain of salaries disappearing. But Inter are still thinking of more potential transfers for names like Kolarov and the young talent Dybala for June. And what if Tevez doesn't come? There are always Marin (Werder Bremen) and Schurrle (Bayer) the players that Inter like very much. For the midfield, don't lose sight on any of Romulo, Kucka or Paulinho: any of them can be the last-minute signing.

Parma, Castaignos and Zarate A long meeting with Parma has led Jonathan Cicero to the Gialloblu with right to purchase half of his card. Both clubs also spoke of two other players, Obi and Juan Jesus. For the Nigerian, there will be other meetings which will probably result Obi moving to Emilia next season (formula is yet to be decided). For the young Brazilian Juan, however, some difficulties have emerged. Other candidates to leave are Castaignos and Zarate. The first one has options in Italy but also in England and Spain. The former Lazio player is liked by many in Spain.



Moratti: "I'll only talk about the derby. Regarding Tevez, City know and I know; we said a few days ago that we'd discuss it next week. I'm only interested in Sunday's game. Yes, but we're in contact with clubs all over the world, including City. In any case my thoughts, as far as sport is concerned, are focused more on Sunday than on anything else at the moment."

From France: PSG could really quit pursuing Tevez and turn to Damiao, another Inter target. With this, Inter would find themselves alone in the race for the Argentinian striker.

David Platt, Roberto Mancini's assistant, hasn't ruled out the possibility of Carlos Tevez staying at Manchester City at least until the end of the season: "I don't know. But more strange things have happened. I don't know the details of the negotiations but what I am led to believe is that, unless there is an agreement that satisfies the club, the deal will not happen in any case."


Alejandro Russo, Instituto director, on Paulo Dybala: "We're in advance stage of negotiations but there is nothing concrete yet. The possibility of him going to Inter in June is a great one."

Dybala's entourage will arrive in Milan in a few hours and will speak directly with Inter regarding the boy's future. The player, however, remains focused on the field: "I was informed by my agent but right now I want to think only about Instituto and to prepare for next season. My mind is at Instituto."

Inter have signed the papers to make Viviano a Palermo player until the end of the season. Viviano is now co-owned between Inter & Palermo.

Sky: Jonathan is willing to go to Parma where he will have a starting spot. Agreement between Inter and Parma was reached yesterday.

OFFICIAL: "L'U.S. Città di Palermo announces that it has acquired, in partnership with Internazionale Football Club, Emiliano Viviano. The goalkeeper, he has chosen the number one shirt, has signed a contract until June 30 of 2016."

Instituto management team will be in Milan tomorrow to close for Paulo Dybala who will be playing in Italy next year. President of Instituto: "Our intention is to go to Italy. Before we can close the deal, we must go and get the signature."

Dybala: "I know that they are going to Italy to close the deal. I'm very happy. But I will stay at Instituto until June and I want the promotion (Instituto are playing in the second division).

Parma have signed Jonathan on loan ONLY. No option to buy half of him. He wants to return to Inter next season.

Secolo XIX: Inter are thinking of taking Kucka on loan immediately and they could put in Obi or Faraoni for that to happen (on loan to Genoa?). But it is very difficult because Inter are not considering letting both go especially the second one now that Jonathan is a Parma player.

La Bild: Inter have explicitly asked for Marko Marin and were informed by the agent that his cost is no less than 10 million euros.

16 Jan 12, 17:59

According to Sky Sports, Manchester City have rejected Inter's offer for Tevez because to them, 25 million plus 2 in bonuses are just too low.

Sky Italia has also confirmed the no from City. PSG seem to be the favorite now thanks to their 30 million plus bonuses offer.

Massimo Moratti was in his office for a very long time, much longer than usual. Giorgio De Giorgis, a very close person to Roberto Mancini, was also seen near the Inter headquarters. Reason could be personal reasons but it is possible that there was a transfer market meeting with City for the likes of Tevez or Kolarov.

Studio Sport: Inter are out of the race for the Argentinian. It was "a negotiation that Inter really never entered into." Milan are still lurking around while PSG are on the rise.

Moratti: "City rejected our offer? I don't know anything about that. But we're considering whether to take him or not, to see if he's worth it. There are many clubs that also interested in him and doing things will happen if there's a good sense."

Sky: City rejected Inter because they wanted more money from PSG. Tevez could only accept playing in Paris if he is covered in money. Inter have not officially backing out on Tevez and new developments are expected to happen soon.


Sky: Inter could consider a move for Krasic. Inter have been surveying the player very timidly but things could change.

Studio Sport: Inter are looking around for an Italian midfielder just in case if Motta really leaves for PSG. Name is Parolo from Cesena.

Moratti: "Sneijder is not leaving in January and surely more younger players will arrive."

Rumors from France: Ancelotti has asked Moratti about Maicon. Figure is 15 million but Inter are not willing to let the Brazilian go.

Instituto president: "Inter were first to show interest in Dybala but they are not the only club. There's also Milan as well. So far there haven't been official contacts or offer from Inter and the player is valued at 5-7 million."

Sky: Juan to come immediately and perhaps even Kucka. Meeting tomorrow with Parma for Jonathan.

17 Jan 12, 06:15


A new offer of 28 million to City is ready for the Argentinian.
Moratti: "Perhaps he is worth all of the trouble."



Moratti is ready to raise with 28 million to City. "Perhaps he is worth the trouble."
PSG towards an bidding war, but Milan always count on the yes from the Apache.
Juan to become nerazzurro immediately and accelerate for Lucas: him or Carlitos.
Jonathan yes to Parma. English ideas for Castaignos.
Liverpool are asking strongly for Castaignos but Inter are blocking him.
Maurito, a sale in just a few days?

Milan - Here is the relaunch of Moratti for Tevez. For the Argentinian, anything can happen: to drive away PSG and ward off Milan, the Inter President confirms that he has many arrows on Apache's head. "He is an interesting player and there is no doubt about it - said Massimo Moratti -, but let's see if the occasion happens to be favorable. I know and understand that there are other teams that interested in him but it is also true that for the moment the team is doing fine. But we'll see, perhaps he is worth the trouble... Have we won the derby in the transfer market after we won the one on the field? Maybe it is possible but doing things on principle can be fun and doing things because they make sense is another thing altogether. Have City rejected our proposal for Tevez? I don't know."

The strategy In all of this, movements by Marco Branca deserve much attention especially on this front. Yesterday afternoon, he has received the news that the proposed loan with obligation to buy for 25 million (plus 2 in bonus) is not satisfactory.

There's Milan The Rossoneri, before Pato rejected PSG, agreed with City to buy the Apache for 28 million immediately. And it is clear that City would start at that price. Also on the horizon there is always PSG who is looking for the yes from the Argentinian before present themselves in Manchester. Logically, Milan are waiting as their weapon always remains the same which is the unconditional yes from Tevez and they hope for a last minute deal.

Give and take Meanwhile, Claudio Ranieri releases important questions: "I repeat what I've already said. There is balance now and the team has become solid. Tevez is a champion, but he hasn't played for a long time, so we need to understand how much this lad can give and how much he can take away. These are the assessments that we'll make. We'll decide together with the president." Then Moratti responded: "I have to take into considerations what Ranieri has said as he is the closet person to the group." Then, a digression: "Sneijder is staying? I really think so," closed Moratti.

Brazilian green As we are waiting a verdict on Tevez, the Nerazzurri have received good news from Brazil. For months now, Inter have been working on Juan Jesus, Internacional defender and after the meeting yesterday in headquarters in Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Inter have decided to break the inertia. The agreement with Internacional and the U-20 player could become a reality soon. Green lights also emerged from yesterday meeting to secure the talented Lucas from Sao Paulo. But it is clear that the biggest question of this purchase is linked to Tevez. To bring home Lucas, it takes at least 25 million so Inter must choose between him and the Argentinian. So everything is changing fast.

Kucka and Jonathan Marco Branca and Piero Ausilio, next week, will talk with Genoa for the Slovak Kucka as Inter are waiting to know the recovery time of Stankovic and the decisions of Muntari (but Inter will not give him to the Rossoneri immediately). There is no agreement on the transaction: a loan or buying the other half but the feeling is pretty much alive. In terms of outgoing transfers, there is Jonathan Cicero. Today or tomorrow, with an element of surprise, Jonathan could accept being loaned out to Parma.

Luc stays? For Luc Castaignos, his immediate sale is not a definitive closure: for Ranieri "he is one that always scores in training" but in the meantime, Liverpool also have begun to follow him with perseverance. The Reds are willing to ask him on loan with right to purchase but Inter do not want to sell.

Leaving after Tim Cup? Even in the evening of the derby, Mauro Zarate was staying on the stands: is it a final rejection or only technical choice? Ranieri has repeatedly encouraged the player, asking for consistent and throughout performances. Nothing for now. It is probable that Zarate will take the field against Genoa in Tim Cup and it could be the last chance to hold on to Inter. If there is not an adequate reaction, Zarate could say goodbye to Inter just like Muntari. Thinking of him are clubs like Newcaste, Bolton, and QPR in England. Those 16 million that Inter will not use to buy the player will be invested now or in the future.



From France: Agreement reached with City for 29 million plus 8 in bonuses. But Tevez seems unwilling to accept playing in France.

City have denied such agreement with Paris Saint Germain.

GdS: City denied agreement with PSG but it is only a caution and tomorrow will be the decisive day. Even Tevez knows that convincing him to go to Paris is not easy."

From France: Tevez is expected to be in France tomorrow where a contract of 30 million euros total in 3 years is ready to convince the player.

Sky: A meeting between PSG and Tevez's agent Kia Joorabchian is scheduled for Thursday.


Dybala's agent: "Inter are very interested and have made an offer of 2.3 million. Paulo is very excited. I think it is the biggest transfer in the history of a second division club in Argentina. If the deal closes, the player would go from Instituto to Inter. I would say that this is 90% done."

According to Sky, a meeting between Motta and his agent to discuss potential move to PSG took place today. And at the end, emerged the yes from the player. Motta is very open to play for PSG as Inter have not showed interest in giving him a contract renewal.

According to Di Marzio from Sky, if Motta does leave, Inter would take Kucka immediately in January and one more midfielder.

Motta's agent: "My son and I had lunch with Thiago Motta and it is very normal between agents and their client. At the moment, Thiago hasn't said anything yet and I don't know if PSG had spoken to Inter. Clearly if the French club makes its moves then they should contact directly with another clubs to perhaps survey the situation, I really don't know. I repeat, to me, the player has not said anything as well as PSG, they haven't asked me about anything."

Sneijder's agent: "Moratti said Sneijder's staying? Yes, I agree. A few weeks ago the player said that there was 90% chance that he would stay and perhaps it's at 100% now? Those words from Sneijder have shown that there are no problems with the club or the coach, and there are no offers from other clubs. He just left a small percentage because in football everything can happen and for that reason I would answer the same way."

Official: Jonathan to Parma on loan from Inter.

We have also sold half of Crisetig in exchange for all of Obi. The Italian will remain at Inter until of the season.

Genoa sporting director: "Kucka? We'll see what happens and we need to talk to Inter."

Sky: Branca is in Brazil. The main target is finalizing the deal for Juan and taking the decisive steps for Lucas.

Motta's agent: "We met him today but there is no contact with PSG. He WILL stay at Inter despite having an expiring contract in 2013."

Ansa: "Cavoni, Motta's agent, is denying it but there is an offer from PSG for Motta of 8 million euros."

Zarate's agent: "Inter do not want to let him go and it is very likely that coach Ranieri will not let him go at least until season's end."

Sky: Guarin's agent, Marcelo Ferreyra, will meet with both Inter and Juventus on Thursday.

18 Jan 12, 05:57


The Argentinian could already sign for Ancelotti who is also looking at Thiago Motta.
Inter on Juan and Lucas as Brazil is in Brazil.



Agreement between PSG and City for 37 million. The Milan clubs are far away.
Today, the Apache's agent to Paris to negotiate.
And Ancelotti to offer 8 million for Thiago Motta.

Milan - Adieu Carlitos. After a month and a half of chasing him, Italian football is now resigned to the idea that soon, the Apache will wear the shirt of Paris Saint Germain. Yesterday, there was a turning point between the clubs and now a possible agreement is there between three parties. Today there is an appointment in Paris to close everything in style.

The blitz of Kia The money put into the pot by PSG has convinced City and enticed the Argentinian striker. So much so that today Kia Joorabchian, agent of Tevez, will be in the French capital to handle salary details. Leonardo and Carlo Ancelotti for this transfer are willing to spend 29 million euros plus 8 in bonuses while ready a contract until 2015 for 7 million net per season. It is said that the French are willing to go even higher with a fixed 32 million and 5 in bonuses. Those are the figures that meet expectations from City management in John McBeath and Brian Manwood. City have denied agreement but it seems that it is just a caution from the media. In London last week, everything was ready for a double signings like Pato to PSG and Tevez to Milan but the no from the Brazilian destroyed everything.

Enough raising For Inter, they were ready to increase their offer to 28 million, matching offer of Milan on last Thursday. But for now there is only one thought which is going other directions. The sudden attack from Leo has made Inter backing out of the deal so now Branca is leaving for Brazil to invest in younger players.

Assault to Thiago But Leo is talking with Inter for another former player: Thiago Motta. Rumors suggest that the proposal is 8 million from the French with a very rich contract extension. In Corso Vittorio Emanuel does not exclude the interest as Inter also have to find a replacement as soon as possible which is not a simple task. This is why the Italian-Brazilian could postpone this move to Paris until the summer.



Technical director Branca to Porto Alegre for the young central defender.
On the striker, concentrate for a strong push.

Milan - Tevez is fading away. So what? Now what? What will Inter do after this decisive assault from PSG? First, no tragedy and no tears. They tried. Score one for Leonardo and now ball is in the center and move on. To Brazil.

Mission Jesus and Lucas Yes, because Inter technical director Marco Branca is already in Brazil. First mission: Juan Jesus. Mission attached: Lucas Moura. For the central defender, who can also play as a left back, a meeting with International will take place soon. The idea is to take him immediately at a cost of around 3.7 million euros and therefore Inter will use the first of two extra non-EU spots currently available. But there's also Lucas. The boy will not play in Copa Libertadores with his Sao Paulo and recently he said that he does not feel ready to change country. Reliable sources suggest that Inter are having their hands on him just like with Juan Jesus. Lucas Moura, the all around player of Sao Paulo and born in 93, was in Inter's plan as early as December, even before than Tevez. There were rumors of his pact with his current club that he is not leaving Brazil before the Olympics. In truth, that was more or less the shyness of the player and now Inter will seek to overcome challenges to persuade the boy to come immediately. It will not be easy but after the track towards Tevez has dried up, Lucas has reemerged.

Thiago no, Kucka yes: for now Inter still have to deal with several other voices and one of them is about Thiago Motta, who will not move in January. The attack from PSG is there but for now Inter are not looking for his replacement so if anything, he will move in June. While Soren Lerby, Sneijder's agent, spoke about his client: "Wes is staying at Inter at 90%, if not even 100%." For Kucka, the feeling is that these coming hours, the Slovak could come to Inter on loan. His transfer to Ranier's Inter is much alive now that Stankovic is out for a long period of time. With Jonathan deal, half of Crisetig now belongs to Parma and Inter have gotten all of Obi for 3.5 million (the other half).


Now that Forlan is hurt again, Inter are keeping one of Zarate or Castaignos.

Sky: Branca in Brazil for Juan in January but for Lucas, Inter are looking to book him for the summer.

Di Marzio: "Negotiations for Juan from Internacional is closer to conclusion and the defender would take one of two free non-EU places. For Lucas, Inter are laying the groundwork to buy him next summer as Sao Paulo do not want to sell in January. Paulinho and Romulo hypotheses remain naive."

Motta's agent: "There is NOTHING with PSG because Inter do not have Thiago Motta on the market and the player is not asking to leave."

Vice president of Vasco de Gama: "With Inter there are no direct negotiations at this time. I can guarantee you that, Inter have not asked information for Allen and Romulo."

Ancelotti: "Maicon and Motta are the players that I like very much but we are not getting them. Tevez? Negotiations in progress and it is not easy because he is a great player and attracts lots of interest. There is the desire to sell from City and to buy from us but we also must consider getting an agreement with the player."

According to Sport Mediaset, Milan are looking at Chivu as a possible reinforcement for the defense.

Sky: Inter have completed the signing of Juan Jesus with Internacional. Every little detail is finished, only missing the player's signature. He will come immediately to Italy but he will go on loan to either Bologna or Novara.

Word from Brazil is that Branca is, in addition to Juan, also working on the Vasco da Gama midfielder Romulo. While according to Sky, Guarin is also a possible target for the midfield.

About Lucas, Marco Branca is trying to understand the possibility of buying the Brazilian. Inter director is keeping contact with Sao Paulo and the player's agents, looking to convince the player who does not want to miss the Olympics. Sao Paulo want to keep the player until the summer and Inter want to lock him up (if the club can't convince him to come now) for the summer with a fixed price. Getting him now is hard but Inter are trying.

19 Jan 12, 05:28


Juan to sign today, then Branca will meet with the Sao Paulo striker.
Thiagp tempted by PSG.

Milan - Inter are constantly pressing strongly on Lucas. Marco Branca, sent to Brazil, will be done with Juan Jesus today and then he will meet with Lucas Moura.

Juan, ends today Yes, today could be an important day for the signing of Juan Jesus: there will be an important meeting with both the player and Internacional. The deal will probably be concluded at about 3.7 million and there is already an Italian team that has come forward to get him on loan: the clues lead to Novara.

Lucas Then it will be the turn of Lucas Moura: Branca will try to convince both the club and the player for his transfer immediately to Italy. it is not easy but Inter will try until the end. From Brazil, word is that this whole operation could cost around 25 million and Inter will meet with the club and the player himself. Moratti is very enthusiastic for the player and could spend a high figure for him to be in Italy now.

Luc out of transfer market? Among other things, the K.O. of Forlan has led to this thought: who will stay? Inter have rejected Liverpool's loan offer for Castaignos which is a very important signal: Castaignos is not for sale. And Zarate is going to... who knows but soon the intricate that is operation Mauro will take off.

Thiago what will happen? Next week, watch out for a meeting for Kucka: it is the move that almost completed (on loan) and Inter have offered Muntari. Speaking of the midfield, Thiago Motta is surrounded by many rumors from France however, it is difficult to see him leaving in January: some rumors have hinted that he likes the idea of going to PSG in this transfer window. But is it true? PSG are ready to offer a three-year contract to the player and 4 million per season while on the other hand, he hasn’t heard anything regarding contract extension from Inter.

Like Guarin, idea Granero The most reliable news are this: unless Inter found a substitute for Thiago Motta, he is not leaving Inter and besides Ancelotti has recognized his importance for Ranieri and therefore he is not wiling to create a plan to disturb. So if the concept of“won’t leave if there’s no replacement” is true then the door would not totally shut. And for this, Inter have looked around for midfielders. Guarin is the first name on the list and at this moment, Juve have the advantage but with Inter have had his information and will meet with his agent in these hours. The second is Esteban Graneri,the 24 year-old Spanish midfielder of Real.

Dybala Then there is the confirmation on Paulo Dybala, the Argentinian striker born in 93 of Instituto: “Inter have so many Argentinians and so for me it would be an ideal place besides the fact that that team likes me. Zanetti has spoken well of me? It is a nice…recommendation.” Dybala costs Inter around 3 million and will be nerazzurro in July.


Inter to meet with Freddy Guarin's agent today. Juventus are also interested but it seems to be diminish because they only have one non-EU spot available and it is likely to be filled with the signing of Martin Caceres. Porto are asking for 15 million but open to a loan deal with option to buy at 12.

GdS: Leonardo's PSG are not only following Tevez, Maicon and Thiago Motta but the French club is also looking at Giampaolo Pazzini. Very difficult for two reasons: Inter made a big investment on him last season and the latest injury suffered by Forlan. Pazzini is likely to stay.

According to Repubblica, PSG have offered 8 million for Motta and "the Nerazzurri would turn that figure plus 4 more million to Porto for Guarin." The Colombian then would take one of the two free non-EU spots.

Sky: Juan Jesus is going on loan at Novara.

Sky: Inter are in negotiations for a young defender named Lichnovsky.

Tevez's agent is not going to Paris today and agreement with PSG is still far away.

There was a meeting between Inter and Genoa for three players: Kucka, Muntari and Zarate.

Muntari has rejected a loan move to Genoa for six months.

Sao Paulo are ready to bid for Diego Forlan. This deal could be for June because Forlan cannot change shirt again this season.

Meeting between Juve and Fredy Guarin did not go well. Both parties are at a great distance apart. Now, a meeting with Inter is coming soon.

StudioSport: Branca wants Lucas now & Inter could pay 2 million for his loan and then 25 million more in June. Sao Paulo are not convinced.

GdS: Angelomario Moratti to meet with Guarin's agent. While Juve are in favor of using Caceres to fill the lone non-EU spot that they have.

Sky: Muntari could eventually agree to go to Genoa for the next six months before going to Milan. Muntari could go to Genoa for Kucka.

Sky: Muntari-Kucka exchange is very close to happen.

Branca: "I think Tevez, in reality, is very close to PSG and I also think that his agent has received a very good offer. But we are also interested in him and we will continue the discussion with his agent. We are studying the possibility of returning for Carlitos in the next few days and I don't think we are late. Tevez and his agent will have to wait for a day or two because this situation will not change in a day or two and the transfer window is not closing today or tomorrow."

From France: Agreement reached between Inter and PSG for Motta. Inter asked 12 million while PSG offered 8 so at 10 million, an agreement was found.

Branca: "PSG have expressed interest for Motta but there is not offer. There is very little chance that Thiago leaves Inter in January."

Moratti: "Transfers? I think the fans are happy that these players are giving more than they thought they could. But if an opportunity arises, we won't shy away..."

Sky: Branca has got the yes from Lucas and now will be working with S. Paulo to lock him up for the summer.

But Branca's trip to Brazil was not just for Lucas. The two new names for Inter midfield are Oscar (Internacional) and Fernando (Gremio).

Sky: Juve are more likely to get Caceres than Guarin. Guarin is one of the names for our midfield.

Attacking on M'Vila and hunting in Brazil: open for Lucas and advance for Romulo.
Taken Juan (will be turned over to Novara on loan) and Branca's blitz has also closed for Vasco midfielder and Sao Paulo talent.
Negotiating with Rennes for the pupil of Blanc.
There's a way to get Kucka immediately while Genoa have secured Muntari.

Milan - Everybody to come now? For Lucas, it is always hard but there is an opening. The highly popular M'Vila is more than just an idea and there is a new round on Romulo. Or rather a flashback. Inter are ready for a big January for various reasons and discrete opportunities on the horizon. And at best, it could get a trio of great quality.

The blitz The last mission to South America is very important. Inter technical director Marco Branca will return from Brazil as early as the weekend. The director has closed for Juan Jesus but, above all and as anticipated, has set up contacts with Sao Paulo for Lucas Moura, the talent that Moratti will try to bring immediately to Inter.

The meeting There is also Yann M'Vila. The assault on Blanc's favorite player is due to the fact that if Thiago Motta really moves to Paris, the French player of Congolese origin would really become fashionable again. Same story with Romulo, the road to him had gone cold recently but could heat up again. There was a lot of talk about these two players in post derby meeting. The Nerazzurri have been working on him for some time in anticipation for next summer. All in line for the choices made by the clubs from last two seasons. Just remember that a year ago, Moratti returned to the transfer market and bring home Ranocchia and also Pazzini. And to the tune of millions. So Inter are following the French tracks that lead to Yann M'vila, who costs about 20 million and has been in the directors' notebooks for at least six months and now he is in Moratti's thoughts. M'Vila could be included in the Champions League list in the event that Motta chooses PSG for four million a season.

The turning point Let's start talking about Branca's mission to Brazil by saying that Inter have got Juan Jesus and sent him to Novara on loan in order to keep its two non-EU spots. But of course, his mission is not just for Juan Jesus but also for Lucas: in a transfer market meeting post-derby, Inter have decided - seeing the tracks to Tevez have started to dry up but not close entirely (as said by the recent words of Branca) - to go and get Lucas in January. Sao Paulo continue to resist but there is one important aspect: from Brazilian sources arrive the rumors that Sao Paulo are already looking for his replacement. So Branca will continue working to bring him to Italy now or in July. But right now we can say that Inter have got their hands on the player's future.

Romulo contact In the midfield, other than Kucka who could come on loan, returns the name of Romulo as Branca has initiated contacts with Vasco da Gama. The deal has a cost of between 7 to 8 million euros and this could be seen as the alternative for the Colombian Fredy Guarin (yesterday his agents met with Nerazzurri directors but Juve are ahead). Two more new tracks in Brazil for the Inter midfield are Oscar from Internacional and Fernando, Gremio midfielder. Another candidate for the midfield could be Sahin as he does not have any playing time at Real Madrid. On this however, there are doubts about the bureaucratic nature. Sahin has played just 8 minutes in the Champions League and could not be used in this top European competition. And not only that his season has been filled with injuries.

Searching post-M'Vila The certainty from France is that M'Vila is already... lost. To RMC, his coach Frederic Antonetti has declared: "Yann will leave and we are working to replace him." Possible replacement is Anin from Sochaux while Rennes only consider selling M'Vila only at the end of the season. But what if Inter come? So at the end, Sao Paulo and Rennes are looking for the replacements for their young stars for one reason that is Inter are breathing down their necks.

Inter and Genoa The Coppa Italia game between Inter and Genoa at the San Siro last night was just a curtain that closed a very long day together of these clubs. All afternoon yesterday, in fact, they were playing at the Melià hotel in Milan where after lunch, a very long meeting took place between Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio and his college from Genoa Stefano Capozucca. It was an appointment to try to define the transfer of Juraj Kucka to Inter. The midfielder is co-owned between the two clubs and Inter are seriously considering bringing him in in January, a transfer that was scheduled for July.

Distance Genoa seem wiling to accommodate the request of Inter but want to close the operation by giving up half of Kucka's card in their possession. But Inter only want a loan deal until June (replicating the process that lead Merkel from Genoa to Milan a few days ago, he is also co-owned by both clubs) and then discuss his other half in June. But they are only starting to talk which will probably enter into next week and a solution that satisfies all will be found at the end of the transfer window.

Muntari But the conversation between Ausilio and Capozucca was not limited to just Kucka. Genoa also are in need of reinforcements in the midfield and have asked Sulley Muntari on loan. Muntari is running out of contract and is going to Milan in the summer. Genoa president Preziosi has pushed for the closing of this transaction and last night, he took the advantage of the match at the San Siro to talk to Federico Pastorello, Muntari's agent. The Ghanaian, before signing a three year deal with Milan, will find regular playing time under the shirt of Genoa.


Forlan's agent denies Sao Paulo rumors: "I can assure you that there is no contact with Sao Paulo. Diego is well at Inter and the only thing he has in mind is to help the team to win something important. I absolutely don't think that he is leaving Milan and I'd also like to deny rumors of an exchange with Lucas."

Mancini: "Tevez's staying? Impossible. Carlos does not want to stay. It is important for him to start playing because he is a footballer. Three months without player is certainly not doing him any good and I hope everything can be solved quickly. Rumors? I don't know about the latest. I think that now Tevez is talking with PSG and Inter, not Milan. I hope for him we can come to a conclusion."

Muntari's agent: "Before leaving, he has given me the directions in terms of his preferences and Milan would be the destination desired by all. But the possibility of Genoa we have not yet been informed and we are not excluding it because Genoa is a good place although for now there is nothing official."

GdS: "Things between Thiago Motta and PSG are heating up. Inter continue to resist but the midfielder is pushing to get to Leonardo immediately."

Preziosi: "I cannot say that if Kucka will leave or not. Because if we get a good offer for him then he can go but otherwise, he will stay here."

Tevez's agent is currently in Paris talking with Leonardo.

M'Vila's agent: "It's not true at all and I don't know where these rumors are coming from. He is well at Rennes and they do not want to sell him so he is not going to play in Italy, for Inter, or for any other teams. Inter have not come looking for him just like any other clubs and I can say that M'Vila is absolutely staying at Rennes."

Latest rumors are that Juve have decided to focus on Caceres leaving Guarin behind. An advantage for Inter?

On PSG website, there was a page where fans can welcome and say their greetings to Carlos Tevez. Of course, it was taken down.

Lucas's agent: "We know that Inter want him but Lucas will not leave Sao Paulo. The boy still wants to stay and the club has not expressed the desire to sell."

GdS: Tevez signing for PSG is imminent. To him is 11 million and City will get 37 million for him.

Sky: Tevez hasn't reached agreement with PSG yet. His agent will now return to London.

Tevez was one step away from signing for PSG but this has collapsed according to the latest news. Leonardo, PSG director: "There was no agreement and perhaps there will never be."

GdS: Tevez has said no to a record offer. Now Milan are back in play for the Argentinian striker.

Sky: "Tevez said no to PSG. It is not the matter of money or economic agreements. He evidently wants to respect his words given to Milan. The meeting in Paris between Leonardo and Kia ended badly and now the agent is coming back to London."

Dybala's agent: "We are on track. The only missing thing here is my trip to Italy which is the last step of this transaction. Instituto directors will go with me. We have booked the tickets to Italy and now I only wait for the OK from the club."

Sky: Marco Branca will return with Juan Jesus on Sunday.

21 Jan 12, 15:46
Apparently at some point, to some one, Lucas has said: "When I leave Brazil, I will go to Inter."

Tevez's agent: "We have never spoken to Inter, there really isn't a link between us. Carlos wants only Milan and now waiting to understand the intentions of City."

Tevez's agent: "We are in the midst of the discussions but there is still a long way to go before he signs any agreement. We are also continuing to talk to other clubs that are interested. We are not in a hurry to close even if we do not want to prolong negotiations for too long. Carlos is one of the best players in the world. Question of money? No, not really. We must also look at the quality of life, the people that we're working with and the needs of his family... We have to consider all these things before making the final decision."

Branca: "Fredy Guarin is a very interesting player and we also are in need of a midfielder so he is definitely a possibility. I don't know if there are offers from other clubs (Juve for example) but we have not formalized anything yet. I will have to speak to President Moratti and then make the decisions. Meeting? Yes, there was one this week but I wasn't in the meeting because I was not in Italy at the time."

Carlo Laudisa, GdS version of Di Marzio: "PSG are seriously interested in Thiago Motta and when a 10 million offer comes, Inter would accept. At that point they would focus on Romulo and other midfielders that rumors have been circulating these hours. Lucas? Branca is not giving up and he wants to get him here now but it is not easy."

Ranieri on Motta: "He is a unique player so before selling him, thousands of evaluations should be done."

Obi's agent: "There are no negotiations between Genoa and Inter to bring my client to the Rossoblu. I believe the fate of Obi is to stay in Milan for next season."

Juan to leave for Milan today but he will be sent to Novara on loan in order to keep the two non-EU slots available.

Moratti on Motta: "It's true that he's a unique player. Every player is unique at this level, when you win the Club World Cup and the Champions League. Motta is definitely one of our most important players and he's made history with Inter. That means he shouldn't be for sale. In the transfer market you never know but we hope he doesn't leave."

Moratti on Lucas: "I don't know because I haven't seen Branca yet. I think the trip was to try and understand how things stand, not to do anything immediately. What can Lucas bring to the team? I'm not a coach but he looks like a useful player to me, with considerable talent, though no one is indispensable. That said, sometimes these new players that come through showing world-class potential can be important."

Moratti on Tevez: "Where will he play? That's a difficult question... [smiling]."

Kucka: "I'm feeling good finally. I hope not to have any more muscles problems from now until season's end. I am now at my best physically. No, I have not seen Inter management. I really have not met them."

Secolo XIX: Inter could come in the picture for Angelo Palombo. Among the clubs interested are Fiorentina and Roma.

Juan Jesus: "For me now begins a new life. I would like to say special thanks to Internacional and the fans who have always helped me. I will go to Europe, to Italy but my heart will always be supporting Internacional di Porto Alegre."

23 Jan 12, 17:51
Moratti: "Sneijder? We never thought of selling him because for us, he is a champion."

Tevez: "My only destination is Milan. I just want to play for the Rossoneri. But it's true that the contacts with other clubs are continuing."

Preziosi on Muntari-Kucka exchange: "It is a feasible deal, definitely. But we are still figuring out if Inter want to take Juraj because otherwise, this would backfire on the possible exchange with Muntari whom we are interested in."

According to GdS, Muntari seems to have decided his next destination and it will be Genoa. "Here come the signs for Muntari's future. Federico Pastorello, his agent, is meeting with Genoa President Enrico Preziosi here at Lega di A headquarters in Milan. They are working on polishing the details and Muntari should be going on loan to Genoa soon where he will stay until season's end then return to back to play for Milan in July."

Igor Lichnovsky's agent: "Inter have now been added in the race for him with Chelsea. The Nerazzurri have contacted me in recent days in order to get more information on economic terms of the deal. He still has four more years in the contract but Inter will have to first enter into negotiations with his current club."

Latest news is that PSG seem to have decided to not going after Maicon because Inter have closed that door. But they are still insisting on Thiago Motta.

Igor Campedelli, Cesena President, discusses rumors on Marco Parolo: "For us, Parolo is a very important player. Inter, as well as Fiorentina and Lazio, are interested but we have not entered into negotiations.

FIFA agent Morabito: "Word from France is that Thiago Motta could sign the contract with PSG today."

It's not all done for Guarin. Juve are talking with Cagliari for Nainggolan & it was a positive meeting. Inter are interested in Guarin.

StudioSport confirms that it looks like Muntari is going to Genoa on loan for a few months before coming back to Milan to play for the Rossoneri.

Sky: "Kucka-Muntari exchange should happen and the situation seems to be going peacefully at this time. Both clubs are talking about it."

Sky: "Thiago Motta to PSG depends on what the offer from the French club would be."

Sky: "Inter have made a big step towards Lucas Moura. Branca has been working with his family as well as S. Paulo to understand the situation. The player, however, will only come in June."

From Brazil: Inter have locked Lucas up for the summer. So after the Olympics, Inter will put him under a contract.

Ranieri wants to keep Motta but what will Moratti do? Recently he said: "In the transfer market you never know but we hope he doesn't leave."

Word is Thiago Motta is pushing for PSG move because of a massive 4 million per season until 2015. But without a decent offer and a proper replacement, he is not going anywhere.

Motta: "My future? Uncertain. There are still 8 days remaining in this transfer window and anything can happen. I have spoken to Moratti and Ranieri to clarify things. We'll see. Where will I end up? Paris is a beautiful city but I don't know. I'm definitely feeling good here in Milan though and I must thank Moratti and Preziosi for their help after a difficult time."

French radio station RMC: "Sources closed to owners from Quater confirme that Motta is top of their list. Leonardo has asked for the player and offered a three-year deal, 4.5 mil per. For Inter, a 10 million offer is ready but Inter want 13."

Sky: Inter have decided to keep Juan Jesus and spend one non-EU spot for him this season. No Novara move.

Sky: If Thiago Motta does leave, Nurin Sahin from Real Madrid could be a possibility but only on loan.

Di Marzio: "Agreement between Motta and PSG. There is still no agreement between the two clubs however. Kucka is coming but not to replace Motta."

24 Jan 12, 05:55


PSG are pressing on Inter: in these hours, final attack on Romulo for post-Motta.
Juan and Kucka in black and blue.

Milan - Inter have not received an email from Paris yet. But according to rumors from France, this is imminent. Leonardo and Carlo Ancelotti want Thiago Motta and some voices suggest that they are organizing a press conference in the next few days because this deal is virtually being finalized.

It can happen And what about him? What would he say? This. "There are eight days left in the transfer window and anything can happen, but I've already spoken to president Moratti and Ranieri, we'll see. Paris? Yes, it's a beautiful city but I'm happy in Milan too. I'll always be grateful to president Moratti and to the Genoa president, who brought me to Italy in a difficult moment. The team and I have made history at Inter. Could I lose my place in the Italy team if I leave? I don't think so but as I said I'm happy at Inter, now we'll see." And as he walked out, Thiago left us some more clues. "Have I chosen Paris? No, I haven't chosen anything. Are PSG a possibility? Yes it is."

In three days or in June The proposal of PSG - according to sources close to Qatar Sports Investments which controls the French club and cited by RMC Info - is 10 million to Inter and 4.5 million to the player for the last six months of this season plus three more years. One thing is clear: Inter consider Thiago Motta irreplaceable (or certainly at least more than 10 million) and even Ranieri has told this to the player. But proposals from PSG remain strong so much so that this could be impossible to say no. The truth is that there is not one player - on the market and available for the Champions League - that like Thiago Motta and that is why the club has no intention to find his replacement at the last minute. So either PSG finalize its offer in the next 72 hours or Inter would close this door permanently and he will stay until June.

Romulo, Sahin and Juan It's clear that Branca and Ausilio are ready to find possible replacements for the player, but all of these players aren't exactly like Thiago Motta. The Romulo idea remains alive, just like Fernando the possible loan for Sahin. But the Vasco midfielder would fill the second non-EU spot. Why second? The first will be filled by the Brazilian Juan Jesus who will remain at Inter and set aside the possibility of leaving for Novara. The Internacional defender is now the first purchase of the year (3.8 million). The second will be Kucka which will arrive in exchange of loans with Genoa and Muntari (before moving to Milan). But watch out for last minute deals because Inter have been the specialist in this just look back at deals for Sneijder, Pazzini, Nagatomo and even Zarate.


Igor Lichnovsky, Universidad de Chile defender on playing in Europe: "I'm calm. I dream of playing in Europe and I'm working for it." Meanwhile agent: "Inter have been interested in him ever since they were following Eduardo Vargas. And now we are in constant contact."

O Jogo: Yesterday there was a meeting between Porto management and Guarin's agents to discuss offer from Juve for the player, an offer that was deemed to be unacceptable. Inter seem to be interested in Fredy Guarin and they're looking for a midfielder to replace the departing Motta. Porto want 15 million.

Motta's agent: "I believe that Thiago said is true: anything can happen. But at the moment there is only interest - he knows this as well as Inter - and there haven't been any real offers. We'll see that happens. One thing is certain: before his contract expires, we will have to meet with Inter and as of right now, we haven't heard from them."

Sky: Contract extension until 2013 is ready for Walter Samuel. He'll be around at Inter for another year.

Sky: Mariga is going back to Serie A on loan. Inter and Parma have sorted out problems and he will go to Parma on loan.

StudioSport: Inter have an offer of more than 10 million for Motta from PSG and they're deciding whether or not to accept it. Possible replacements are Romulo, Guarin, Kucka, Parolo in an exchange of loans with Cesena for Castaignos.

Sky: If Motta really leaves Inter, the Nerazzurri would think seriously about Sahin.

Sky: First contacts between Inter and Sahin have already happened. Sahin is considered a replacement for Motta and he could come on loan.

GdS: "Ranieri wants to keep Motta but there is a new name for the midfield: Miguel Veloso."

25 Jan 12, 05:36


The transfer market man of PSG has came out in the open.
Inter coach: "For me, he must stay here."
There is the Portuguese (Veloso) but also Sahin and the Brazilian Oscar.
Tomorrow meeting between Genoa and Inter.
Zarate: staying or leaving?

Appiano Gentile - "There are possibilities for Thiago Motta but for now there is no nothing factual or concrete yet." That is Leonardo de Araujo who after unsuccessful negotiations for Pato and Tevez (first was almost yes, second was a straight up no) has officially advertised what we have known for the last few days: Paris wants Thiago Motta and Motta wants Paris but between them there is a sea which his called Inter. Inter do not want to give up the player who, for them, is deemed essential and irreplaceable without: a) the appropriate economic compensation (more than 10 million) and b) at least one replacement in hand.

All was born last summer? So again Leonardo has come out in the open and declared the voices of the past few days. Voices that arise both from Motta's words at the Oscar ("I don't know if I will stay") and from a hypothesis that didn't happen last summer and still hasn't happened: with an expiring contract, Thiago Motta has been waiting for a renewal for quite some time now, a renewal that was never proposed by Inter. This decision by Inter has created some frictions between the two parties despite the fact that that Thiago was very pleased by the good words from Ranieri on him.

Ranieri expects Even Moratti has described him as untouchable, and one of the heroes that "made history at Inter." Yesterday, the number one Interista added: "The statements of Thiago? I don't have any information yet because I was outside of Milan. If there will be news soon? I don't think so. Do we expect Thiago to leave Inter? Why should we?" Then there is Claudio Ranieri - who has often referred to Motta as a player of incalculable value - who said: "I think he will stay here and that's what we all hope." Ranieri strongly opposes the sale and that is certain or at least he needs someone that can replace him. Will it be easy? Will he win? It's all happening before us.

Tug of war Because in the meantime, in Paris, they continue considering that this deal is imminent, sources close to the Qatari insist a three-year deal for the player, 4.5 million per season and 10 million to Inter plus 3 million in bonuses. Gigantic figures. But as of last night, stil no email arrived at the inbox of Inter. "It will arrive," rumors from Paris. It's a tug of war in the friendship between Moratti and Leonardo: either they will meet soon or they'll remain friends like before and talk about this in June.

Miguel Veloso and Zarate Branca and Ausilio are working on post-Motta and Miguel Veloso from Genoa is on the list. This is the name that is now coming back. Maybe because in many ways, he resembles Thiago Motta, because in the past this name was at one time linked with Inter, or because rumors from Portugal will not rule out this hypothesis. For Inter, they are expecting a concrete proposal from Paris before heading for a replacement. And if this proposal comes, Inter will go on the counterattack. There will be a meeting with Genoa tomorrow to define the exchange of loans between Muntari and Kucka and perhaps Miguel Veloso's name could come up in the discussion according to rumors. This same player is also in demand in Russia and England. Another name that could come up in the discussion between Inter and Genoa is Zarate but this will only happen if one of Genoa strikers (Jankovic perhaps) is leaving.

The names and why From Portugal, as previously stated, there are voices regarding Veloso but also those that related to Fernando and Guarin: the Colombian is further and further away from Juve but the truth is that Ranieri and Inter are not really convinced either. Some other same names have appeared again from Sahin, Oscar to Fernando and Romulo. Among these names, Veloso seems to stand out because of the good relationship between Inter and Genoa while Ranieri appreciates those players who already know Serie A.

Casemiro and Lucas From Brazil, here is a name that seems to be gone and now has reappeared: Casemiro. He was deemed as not for sale by Sao Paulo but interested in him there are Genoa, Lazio and recently Villarreal. In the meantime, Zaragoza are interested in Castaignos but Inter, right now, are not willing to give him away after refusing Liverpool. Sao Paulo continue searching for Nilmar: will this be the green light for Lucas? Hard but who knows. Lastly, Samuel is going to renew until 2014.


Pedroso (Lucas's agent), have Inter locked Lucas up for next summer?
"There is nothing definitive with Inter for next summer and the information that I have read is incorrect. Lucas can not negotiate with Inter without the permission from Sao Paulo."

If Lucas arrives in Europe, would Inter be the preference for the boy?
"On our part, there is no preference for any club."

Word is that Marco Branca has already built a foundation with the player, you, and his agents.
"With Branca, there was no meeting to discuss Lucas's transfer to Inter I can guarantee you that."

Is his price tag always around 30 million?
"There is a release clause of 80 million and we know it. Sao Paulo have not expressed its interest in selling Lucas but I can tell you that there is a realistic offer from Chelsea for 35 million."

So when will Lucas leave?
"What I can say at this time is that Lucas has no desire to leave Sao Paulo so we have not started any discussions with any clubs. Therefore, I assure you that the boy will stay at Sao Paulo until the summer."

Thiago Motta's agent: "PSG have asked for the availability of him. Today could be the last game of Thiago Motta with Inter. I believe that Inter have made a mistake, not so much for not renewing the contract of Thiago but there's no consideration on their part despite him being one of the most important players of the team. You can not think of selling a player who is at the end of his contract so now Inter will have to decide to sell, or to keep in this team until the expiration of the contract. Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and PSG are a club that trying to build a team that is the strongest in the world so for Motta, I don't see why he would be against this transfer."

Sky: Inter have no intention of selling Motta because Inter cannot afford his departure without a viable alternative. A proper name is still Sahin of Real Madrid. But getting him on loan does not appear feasible and it would require a different formula (maybe with an obligation to buy). That is why Moratti and his staff would only consider an indecent offer for Thiago Motta from PSG which has not arrived. Motta has already agreed personal terms PSG and now it's up to the two clubs.

Julian Draxler, Schalke 04 young midfielder: "My agent has told me that Inter have expressed interest. This is a wonderful feeling and I feel honored. But my heart is at Schalke and I see no room for other clubs at the moment. No wonder why I signed with this club until 2016."

Luca Marchetti, Sky: "If Inter can convince Real to give Sahin up, then they would open PSG doors. Otherwise, Motta is not going anywhere."

Marko Marin's agent: "Marin will at Werder until June. And now he is in Bremen training to recover from injury."

Cavoni: "If the two clubs can come to an agreement, Motta would go to France with a contract until 2015."

From France: PSG could make a 15 million offer for Motta. 10 million and 3-5 in bonuses.

Sky: Contact with Real Madrid for Nuri Sahin and Sami Khedira. Rejection from Real because they intend to keep both players.

26 Jan 12, 17:33
Muntari-Kucka swap is not going to take place now. Genoa said no because they are not convinced in a player who is going to be in a different team (Milan) at the end of season.

Genoa director: "Veloso is a Genoa player & he'll stay like so, just too important for us. Inter? There's no negotiation concerning Veloso."

Cavoni: "PSG are an option just like staying at Inter. Real problem is to figure out how important Motta is at Inter. However, he would not agree to remain only until June."

Beppe Bozzo to meet with Genoa to discuss Zarate's situation.

Luca Marchetti from Sky: “At this point we could expect that Inter will not do anything. Thiago Motta will only leave if there’s a replacement, but also the other clubs that Inter want to buy from would also need to find replacements so the Nerazzurri could not do anything.”

Chivu’s agent: “Renewal? There’s nothing certain. At the moment however, we don’t have any meeting scheduled with Inter so maybe we’ll talk about it at a later date in February or March after the Champions League. Resentment of this situation? Absolutely not. It is right for clubs to decide whether or not to renew contracts of their players.”

StudioSport: "PSG have only offered FIVE million for Thiago Motta."

Leo: "We're talking about Motta but we still do know what will happen in the next few days because to close it, it will be up to the will of Inter. Inter want to keep the player, we'll see, the market isn't closed yet. We still have time to talk. Motta is very attached at Inter so we must assess the situation. And honestly I don't know what will happen. He is a player that we are interested in but he's in the other team now."

Sky: "Inter have decided and they don't want to sell Motta. Not only that, they're moving slowing to open doors for Fredy Guarin. The right hand man of Porto President has arrived in Milan and he could meet with Inter to talk about Guarin."

Sky: Inter will now decide to loan out one of Castaignos and Coutinho. Bologna, Cesena, Everton and Liverpool want Castaignos. While there are a few Brazilian clubs that want Coutinho on loan like Internacional, Corinthians and Sao Paulo.

Motta's agent: "Negotiations are continuing. The player has said to Inter that he would like to go to PSG but he's happy in Milan. I believe that this operation is stuck because Ranieri does not want to let him go and also because Moratti does not agree. The President isn't totally convinced from a financial point of view. I think you will know Motta's fate between tomorrow and Saturday, whether he'll stay or go."

From Brazil: Last Thursday, Branca was at dinner with Lucas, his agent Wagner Ribeiro and the boy's parents. Luca's agent repeated his will of staying at San Paolo but they are open for a transfer in the next transfer window in the summer. The dinner between Branca and Lucas's agents was an important step but not big enough to create enthusiasm.

27 Jan 12, 04:00


PSG sporting director: "There's time to do it and it is not the question of money."
Will decide in 48 hours. Guarin is close?

Milan - In Paris, people continue saying that it's all done and the only thing missing here is when Inter have a replacement in hands. In Milan, things are different. Nothing has done yet and Motta stays here because a big sale cannot happen in the last three days. However, in all of this there is Leonardo who was on with RTL France and confirmed the following: they want him and they're talking about it.

The truth in two days "Negotiations are continuing between Inter and PSG," said Dario Canovi, agent. "The player has told Inter officials that he would like to go to Paris but he is happy here in Milan. So far I think the deal is stuck because Ranieri does not want to let go of the player and because Moratti is not fully convinced of the operation from a financial point of view. By Saturday we will know everything."

All agree Then, here are the words of Leonardo: "Thiago Motta is a possibility, an opportunity that we are discussing. Inter want to keep the player, but we still have a few days to talk about it. If this is a question of money? No, it's a matter of choices that each protagonist in this situation wants to make. Thiago is an idea and he has a good relationship with Inter. But it's clear that we are interested in the player, absolutely yes, then we must consider that he belongs to the other team and respect it. To make a deal, all should agree."

Missing the replacement Meanwhile at Inter, there's the idea of considering Motta as a not-for-sale type for his tactical and technical values and because there is a big risk of not being able to find a replacement for him in these of the market. In truth, we believe that Inter already have in mind a Mr. X but without the certainty of being able to negotiate with him and his club now that the window is coming to a close.

Midfielder Watch out for Kucka because things are not totally closed. Muntari will be sold for sure but it is almost a certainty that Inter will make Kucka their midfielder given the question marks surrounded Stankovic's injury. Other names for post-Motta rank from almost impossible (Veloso and Sahin), difficult (Oscar and Romulo) to Fredy Guarin, Porto midfielder whose voices are becoming more and more insistent. Juve have given up on the player and they now have signed Caceres. And Inter are now back in the running: the deal could be closed on a loan of 3 million and right to purchase fixed at 8 in the summer. Guarin, however, cannot play in the Champions League but Inter now seem more convince about the player more than ever before.


Fredy Guarin's agent: "I'm working on this negotiation with Inter and this club is a great opportunity. At the moment, there is nothing official, I hope the documents and offer arrive soon."

Contacts are now confirmed to bring Guarin to Inter. Multiple sources have confirmed contact between Jimenez, the right hand man of Porto President, and an Inter director. Negotiations exist and are being discussed for an agreement.

Leonardo: "The relationship between me and Thiago Motta is good. The guy has assured me his desire to come to Paris and this is a good thing. Everything is possible regarding this transfer but I respect Inter. One must have patience."

Two meetings have ended. The first one was with Porto and the result was that negotiations for Fredy Guarin are doable but with strict conditions. Second meeting was with Motta's agent, the result? Motta wants to leave.

Sky: Inter have spoken to Thiago Motta and Leonardo and Inter are only open to negotiations in JUNE.

28 Jan 12, 06:24


The coach asks Moratti to keep Thiago.
Contacts for Guarin, however there's the Cesena player.

Milan - Other than Lucio and Samuel, the true central defender for Inter is Claudio Ranieri. The Inter coach has once again closed the book on the deal involving Thiago Motta and PSG. In short, there was no turning point yesterday but that does not mean that between now and January 31, an sensational twist won't arrive like an offer that cannot be refused.

Leo: but Thiago wants us It seems that Ranieri has once again reiterated the importance of Thiago Motta to Massimo Moratti. An emphasis that has blocked this operation. At least for now. Of course on the other side there are Leonardo and Ancelotti who profess respect and trust. Leo says: "Inter want to keep the player and we are studying the situation. Motta has already demonstrated his will to leave and this is very important. But we also must respect Inter and we will do things only if there is an agreement that suits everyone." Then, there's Carlo Ancelotti: "For Thiago Motta there is still time." In short, if there isn't going to be a turning point, then Inter will keep a very afflicted Thiago Motta. So what would that turning point be? An irrefutable offer, at least 10 million. Now we are facing a hypothesis: how long would he stay for? Response: he should go to Paris in June and in the meantime, Inter and his entourage would start working to insert a rescission clause in the contract.

Guarin, Candreva, Constant So now, Inter continue following Guarin. Another contact was made last night between technical director Branca and a Porto representative. "I'm working on this deal with Inter," said Guarin's agent Marcelo Ferreyra. "Now there is nothing official and I hope the documents as well as the offer to come soon." Inter still have its skepticism because in the meantime there are two other names: Candreva (Cesena, and the favorite alternative) and Constant (Genoa). The hypothesis of Kucka is not totally dead while the idea of Muntari going to Milan immediately will not work but the Ghanaian will definitely leave.

Coutinho, there's Udinese Now let's talk about outgoing transfers. Ranieri has decided to give his trust to Zarate (or there isn't any suitable offers for him?) and now Castaignos could be on his way out: refused an offer from Liverpool. Everton want him as well as Bologna, Cesena and Zaragoza. The rumors abroad are stronger. And Coutinho? He does not want to miss the Olympics in London (like Lucas) and wants to play: interested in him are Internacional, Corinthians, Sao Paulo and... Udinese. But Coutinho prefers to play in his country.


Vitor Pereira, Porto coach, did not include Fredy Guarin in the team list for the next league game. The decision seems to be tied to physical problems but the Portuguese media ensure that this decision could also be connected to the transfer market.

Dybala after a meeting with Instituto: "I had a good meeting with the club and I'm calm and serene." Agent: "We have been transparent and we're waiting to see what the management will do. Our decision, however, was already made," agent reiterated about the agreement reached with Inter.

Forlan: "Penarol? At the moment, it is not possible. I still have several years in the contract and I intend to respect them. I want to play in Europe a little bit more and then, if my physical condition allows me, then I would return to South American."

GdS: Inter could make one last attempt to bring Lucas here in January. And to do that, Moratti could include Forlan and Coutinho to sweeten the pot.

Constant's agent and Udinese director denied links with Inter and Coutinho.

Guarin's agent: "The January market is coming to an end and we still don't know about about Fredy's future will be. I'm concerned that this may influence him emotionally. I believe that we will evaluate the possibility of requesting a loan to Porto to return to Colombia for six months where he can play and recover well mentally."

Sky: Castaignos and Coutinho are leaving on loan. Cesena are first in line for the striker while for the Brazilian, the team could be Sao Paulo. Zarate is staying.

29 Jan 12, 04:11


Thiago did not leave for Lecce, Ranieri wants to keep him but if PSG raise their offer...
The playmaker on loan to the Catalans tomorrow.

Milan - Thiago Motta is not leaving for Lecce due to a calf problem. Coutinho, instead, has returned to the team but on Monday he will be loaned to Espanyol. However, it's still too early to rule out the possible departure of the Italian/Brazilian and this is the thought of Ranieri on the subject: "What Motta's agents, or brothers, uncles, cousins or any of his relatives said (Canovi said: "Thiago is not comfortable.") I don't really care. He is not leaving for Lecce because he wasn't on the field training in the past two days and it would not be fair to others. I want him to stay and it is almost the end of the transfer market so let's wait and see." The problem is that PSG remain confident with strong approval from the player. But Leonardo knows that he needs an offer of more than 10 million to shake Inter in comparison to the 8 million currently.

Alternatives The Nerazzurri transfer market men continue monitoring different names. First and foremost is Fredy Guarin, the 25 year-old midfielder who is in a long fight with Porto. Alternatievez? Candreva (Cesena) or Constant of Genoa but we should not exclude last-minute type of deal for Kucka. But if Thiago Motta stays, then that does not mean someone is coming by force because Stankovic is also "recovering well," explained Ranieri.

Juan enters, Cou leaves However, Inter have already made one signing. Tomorrow, Inter will present Juan Jesus, 20 year-old defender that was at one time, the target for many clubs including Milan and Juventus. The former Internacional defender will not go on loan to Novara but instead he will start breathing the fresh air at Appiano Gentile. Instead, it will be Coutinho that on the way out because he has asked to play because he doesn't want to lose Olympics chance. Tomorrow, Espanyol management will be in Milan in preparation to get Cou on loan until the end of the season. Meanwhile, Luc Castaignos could also go on loan to gain experience for a few months. Making attempts are Bologna, Cesena, Everton and Zaragoza.

Sneijder For Sneijder, he will certainly not leave. "Last summer, Inter sacrificed an important player for budgetary issues but I have a contract until 2015. I'm very well in Milan and I stopped planing for my future for quite some time now."

30 Jan 12, 14:45


Castaignos towards Cesena while Cou to Espanyol today.

Milan - "Thiago Motta is not leaving the city of Milan and Inter. At least until June. I have asked the management to keep him and they have given me the right assurances. And this is great news for us. Important players tactically like him are rare and so we are keeping him close to us." Anything can happen in any transfer window but Ranieri has been strongly against this move from day one so even if PSG raise its offer, which has not happened, from eight million to ten to convince Moratti, Motta is staying here.

Temptation revival The ugly stop in Lecce could make Inter president think about the transfer market especially in the midfield department for a player that can give quantity and also quality to the team. The ideal name remains Fredy Guarin, long at odds with Porto. For the 25 year-old Colombian, Porto have refused an offer from Juve for the loan of two million and another nine after loan ends. And yesterday, rumors from Portugal said that Porto now only want to sell outright.

Versatile Candreva But it is easier for a "low cost" solution with possible loan move with Genoa for Kucka or even with Candreva of Cesena. The Roman, among others, offers the advantage of being able to play both in the midfield and as a winger. Now with Coutinho and perhaps even Castaignos leaving on loans, Inter would need another reinforcement up front. The 19 year-old Brazilian is going on loan to Espanyol. The club, unlike Bologna and Udinese, has guaranteed a certain number of appearances to Cou. No shortage of offers for the 20 year-old striker who has refused Granada. Currently in pole position to borrow him is Cesena. It's hard to find a team for Zarate due to a very high salary.


SportItalia: Agreement reached in principle between Inter and Porto for Guarin. 1.5 million loan and 11 million after if Inter decided to buy him outright.

Sky Sport 24 has also confirmed that deal is done for Guarin and now both clubs are just waiting to announce it. The need to buy a midfielder has become a priority after Lecce game. Guarin will not be able to play in the Champions League however.

Marcelo Ferreya (Guarín's agent): "We expect the official announcement to be made tonight."

For Luc Castaignos, Liverpool remain a concrete potential team of getting him. However, in negotiations with Cesena Candreva was also mentioned for his possible arrival.

GdS: From virtually a Juventus player to an Inter player in reality. Fredy Guarin was a Juve target for weeks, but this morning, he is an Inter player. Massimo Moratti has reached an agreement with Porto and the Colombian for the transfer to Inter: the end of this negotiations is very close and things could close today. It's the second purchase of Inter this winter after they picked up Internacional defender, Juan Jesus.

Galliani on Muntari: "Him in January? I don't know but it is certainly an option. But I cannot say anything definitive but anything can happen."

Muntari's agent was seen near Inter headquarters. A meeting could be in sight with Inter for his transfer to Milan, not in June, but now.

Sky: Inter have registered Juan's contract to Lega Calcio. He is now (almost) officially an Inter player.

Sky: Guarin will fly to Italy tonight. Tomorrow he'll have his medical and sign his contract with Inter. There is also Kucka who according to Sky is also coming this way from Genoa.

Sky: Latest arrival for Inter is Kucka on loan. That was after a positive meeting between Inter and Genoa.

GdS confirmed Kucka rumors: Inter have sped up negotiations for Kucka and he could be another signing for Inter by 19:00 CET tomorrow.

Sky: Kucka's arrival means that Muntari could go to Milan immediately. It doesn't relate to Motta situation.

GdS: Castaignos is not going on loan to Cesena.

Sky: Guarin has landed in Milan. Muntari is close to the AC Milan.

Fredy Guarin: "I am happy to be at Inter but before I say more, I'm waiting for the medical tomorrow. Juve? I don't want to talk about it. Debut on Wednesday? I don't know but first I have to meet the team, talk to my teammates and the coach."

Agent: "It's all done. Official announcements will arrive soon."

Sky: Genoa have said no to Inter's request for Palacio. Apparently we have offered 8 million plus Zarate on loan for Palacio but Preziosi said no. For Kucka, we'll continue to talk tomorrow. No agreement yet.

Sky: "United are no longer interested in Wesley Sneijder. In June, we will understand more if Sneijder is still in Inter's plans/projects."

Sky - Personal terms for Guarin: 1.5 million loan, option to buy at 11.5. Four-year contract, 2 million per.

Palombo is linked to Milan but for Di Marzio of Sky, Muntari is more likely to go there than Palombo.

Candreva's agent: "Inter were interested but due to Castaignos's hesitation in coming the other way to Cesena, this deal has collapsed."

31 Jan 12, 07:05


January transfer window closes at 19:00 CET today.
The Colombian of Porto is already in Milan: to sign contract today.
Also close is the agreement for the Genoa midfielder.
While Leo's PSG to try again on Thiago Motta and Milito.



They have gotten the Colombian and (almost) the Genoa player.
Porto midfielder is already in Milan: "What happiness."
Today medical visit and signing contract. New temptation for Palacio but no.

Milan - These are the last few hours of the transfer market. And Inter's final moments have sanctified them always. From Sneijder to Zarate, from Nagatomo to Pazzini. So here, Massimo Moratti has once again reappeared. And all of a sudden - surrounding by skepticism which now vanished - Inter did an Inter with two surprise signings: Fredy Guarin and Juraj Kucka.

A surprise So does it end here? We believe so for Inter unless in Paris still exist the crazy thoughts of Motta and even Milito and Zarate is not leaving now that Coutinho is now on loan at Espanyol. But then again, you really don't know so watch out for last minute deals because Inter have always made remarkable and surprise signings at these hours of transfer market.

Thanks to Cordoba Fredy Guarin, Colombian and 25 years old, has arrived from Porto and landed at Malpensa at 8:00 pm last night. "Delighted to be here but I still do not know if I can play right away: first I I need to put things in place then we will understand. Cordoba? I have always heard from him. We are friends regardless of the fact now that we are both at Inter. Juve? I don't want to talk about it." Fredy - received many phone calls from Cordoba and landed at Inter after a blitz Sunday night - is coming on loan at 1 million euros with right to purchase set at 11 million in June. Today, he will have a medical exam, sign the contract and then he will consider 14, 15 or 16 for his shirt number. Fredy is virtually impossible to play against Palermo due to the time to complete all the formalities necessary for being a non-EU player. Oh and the other non-EU spot was taken by Juan Jesus whose contract was submitted yesterday. Fredy Guarin - who had dinner last night with his agent at Melia hotel - is also unlikely to take the trip to Roma on Saturday evening. So at the moment, the most likely scenario is against Novara or Bologna.

Kucka ready Not only Fredy Guarin, the direction towards Kucka continued yesterday: after several meetings that didn't really stabilize anything, the one last night was decisive and there should be another one today that could push the Slovakian midfielder to Inter by 19:00 CET today on loan. Preziosi had initially asked for 500 thousand euros for the loan like the deal for Merkel. But Inter insist that such figure is for a player in a co-ownership. And tonight - unless sudden changes of direction - Kucka will be an Inter player and he is ready to take the field as soon as possible.

Luc, Candreva, Zarate Meanwhile there are many side movements. Some whispers suggested of an exchange of loans between Castaignos and Candreva which was already done and established. But? But the Dutch youngster - decided to establish himself at Inter - refused the transfer and his opposition has effectively canceled the whole operation. For Castaignos, possibility of him leaving for a foreign team still stands. In fact, it is between him and Zarate because for the Argentinian rumors of Genoa and Tottenham have gradually disappeared but many voices suggest that in these last hours something will happen.

Palacio and Cou Lastly, there was a rumor of an attack on Rodrigo Palacio, the player that Inter were chasing last summer but Preziosi said no. Meanwhile Cou is gone to Espanyol: "but I will only be here for five months in view of the Olympics. Then I will return..."



Not only Motta but PSG also think of Milito.
But Inter are not oriented to sell Il Principe.
Offer for the midfielder can rise to 10 million.

Milan - After recent unfortunate experiences from the transfer market for Carlo Ancelotti's PSG (the no from Pato and Tevez came just within a few days of each other), the French club could turn once again to the Nerazzurri in order to inject quality into the team for the objectives of this year such as the French league and cup and also prepare for the upcoming Champions League. So Leonardo now would not only raise the new offer for Thiago Motta and also think concretely of Diego Milito.

But Inter stop Possible? Impossible? Simply fantasy football? The big offer has not yet arrived but in Paris yesterday, the voices on the Inter duo have started to spread with great force. Inter, however, at a few hours before transfer market closes, will hardly consider any big outgoing transfers. After Ranieri's words ("The club has told me that Motta is staying") and also because this is a different Milito than one started the season, letting him go at this point would be impossible. So there are doubts but from Paris, there is a willingness to be the best (team quality).

Principe Also because Ancelotti, after selling Erding to Rennes, has only two strikers at the moment. And because of that, Milito is now a variable that has been included in the past few days when PSG were in preparation for Thiago Motta. Rumors from Paris are that PSG are looking for two players, one midfielder (Thiago Motta is first on the list) and a striker and the club likes Milito. For Thiago Motta, Leo said that: "Thiago has demonstrated that he really wants to come to Paris." That's normal especially waiting for him is a two and a half year contract, plus one optional year, and a royal salary of 4.5 million euros. Sources close to the club yesterday revealed a degree of optimism and above all the willingness to raise the offer.


Transfer window closes at 19:00 CET so here we go:

9:50 CET - Word coming from Ata Hotel (this is where last minute dealing happens) is that Inter could also take a forward today.

10:07 CET - Genoa do not want to sell one of its better players on the last day. Contacts could still be made throughout the day though.

11:05 - Leonardo, PSG director: "It is almost certain that Motta will not leave. Inter want to keep him so this is not a deal that can be realized. We'll see in the summer. After Maxwell and Alex, our transfer market is finished."

11:12 - Leonardo on Milito: "We have studied the possibility of getting a striker but it is not happening. This team is very competitive."

11: 30 - Lazio director: "Zero chance that Zarate will return to us." Agent: "Zarate leaving? No, he'll stay at Inter."

12:11 - Apparently after losing Padoin to Juventus, Atalanta have contacted Inter for Poli but we said that he's not on the market. Won't sell.

12:13 - Sky: Muntari close to Milan. PSG officials in Milan trying to convince Inter to sell Thiago Motta today.

12:41 - Motta's agents are in Paris to negotiate with PSG while Leonardo is discussing with Ausilio and Branca. Palombo could be a candidate to replace him if he is indeed leaving for PSG.

12:56 - Motta's agent: "It will be up to Inter if they want to accept the offer. It certainly doesn't depend on me. We'll see what happens."

13:08 - Ranieri: "Motta? He is called up for tomorrow match. Just a few more hours and then I don't have to speak about this anymore." Apparently this was a signal from Ranieri to the club. Motta was not officially called up.

13:21 - Agent: PSG and Inter have reached an agreement for Motta.

13:29 - Motta's agent: "Agreement reached between Inter and PSG only missing small details but there's time until 19:00 CET to define everything."

13:48 - Sky: "There's an agreement between us and Palombo's agent who is in the headquarters of Inter. They want Palombo on loan with right to purchase. A formula which is not convincing Sampdoria who want to sell him outright."

01 Feb 12, 06:19


Surprise Palombo for the last signing. For Guarin, an immediate stop.
The former Samp player already on the bench today?
The Colombian between 20 days: arrived with a lesion in calf.



Ranieri gave him a call-up but Motta still goes to PSG.
To Moratti is 11.5 million. Leonardo's blitz and the coach had to surrender.
No waiting for June for a goodbye.

Milan - Another piece from Sampdoria has moved to Inter. After Castellazzi (2010 summer), Pazzini (January 2011) and Poli (last August), to Inter this time is also Angelo Palombo. The 30 year-old from Ferentino arrives on loan for one million euros with right to purchase at 3.5 million. Technical director Marco Branca and sporting director Ausilio have replaced Thiago Motta (to PSG) and Muntari with the Italian national and Fredy Guarin.

Immediately on the bench? Palombo, who was able to leave Genoa due to the postponement of Samp-Empoli because of bad weather, arrived at Inter headquarters last night and it is not excluded that the could be on the bench tonight against Palermo. At Pinetina, he will find his old friends like Pazzini first and foremost. With him, Pazzini led Sampdoria to the qualification round of the Champions League and the striker was also his neighbor in Pieve Ligure. At Inter, the midfielder will now find new motivations after many difficult months in Genoa. After having rejected the move to Fiorentina and Udinese so he could bring Samp back to Serie A, he accepted the move to a big club like Inter. He has signed a contract until 2015 at 1.8 million per season (the same salary that he had at Sampdoria) and will take the shirt number 17. "I am very happy to be at a great team like Inter," his words after signing the contract.

Guarin in a month There is also Fredy Guarin. The 25 year-old former Porto player is now linked to Inter until 2016. For him, the agreement was one million loan plus right to purchase at 11 million. The Colombian national, who was also targeted by Juventus, yesterday morning was subjected to medical examinations which have confirmed a major calf injury. So that is Ranieri (Guarin is "physically strong, with great quality and can change the game. He's ideal for us.") will have to wait for another 3-4 weeks to have him available to his service. Guarin now will go to Appiano and then he'll be at the San Siro for today's Inter-Palermo. Tomorrow, however, he will be back to Portugal to obtain necessary documents for his non-EU status. And since "his" number 6 already belongs to Lucio, the friend of Cordoba presumably will choose a number between 14, 15 and 16.

Champions list The certainty is that the former Porto player will not be included in the Champions League list which to be submitted by midnight today. Among the 25 for Ranieri there will be Palombo and in comparison to the list in August, there will be a maximum of three new names. The second is Forlan and the last spot should be one of Poli, Castaignos, Cordoba and Juan. The 20 year-old was bought for 3.8 million and is still in Brazil for issues related to the residence and will arrive in Milan in a few days. Today, the team will decide on official presentations. If not this Friday, the new signings would have to wait until early next week.


Adieu Motta And then there's Thiago Motta. The first blitz came in an email early morning yesterday: 11. 5 million, signed by PSG. And Motta said yes so did Massimo Moratti. When so many people thought that the midfielder was going to stay put at Inter, there was the thrust of Leonardo: one and a half million plus 10 (payable in two years), 4.5 million to the player with a contract until 2015. By Monday afternoon, many were convinced that Motta would remain at Inter. But the Qatari decided to take him and they got him. Moral: Inter and PSG already had an agreement in place for June but the blitz of Sultan Al-Thani (the French club's owner) had accelerated everything and with that he was able to steer to the closure of this operation.

Rejoice Sarkozy So we must stay that Carlo Ancelotti was right: "Thiago Motta? We have until January 31." That was him four days ago. Thiago arrived in Paris yesterday at about 16:30, went to Parc des Princes at 17 to sign the contract and will be presented today. He is going to wear the number 28 shirt. Even Nicolas Sarkozy (President of French Republic and married to an Italian Carla Bruni) celebrated the arrival of Thiago: "We have too many Italians at PSG which I think a good thing right?"

Decided The curious fact here is that Thiago Motta, before 19:00 CET, was in the team list for Inter-Palermo and it was on the site of Inter. And at 13:00 when the midfielder was in the dressing room saluting his teammates after a training session, Ranieri said: "This morning I saluted him just like I did with everyone, he is called up because I hope to have him tomorrow." And: "We have no one like him in the team: I hope he stays." Ranieri would have been very happen without this transfer because the midfielder is the only one that has certain characteristics (which Guarin and Palombo do not have), but this sorrow is not boundless and it is not something that can create friction between him and management. Because Ranieri knows the following: Thiago wanted to leave at all costs and he was not happy as Inter like before. His desire to leave grew exponentially when PSG showed interest.
