Inter enter Cassano chase
Thursday 2 June, 2005
Inter are ready to renew their rivalry with Juventus by taking them on in the chase to sign Antonio Cassano.
Reports yesterday suggested that the Bianconeri had made an initial bid for the Roma sensation.
But the Milan giants are ready to complicate matters by tabling a more enticing offer to the capital outfit.
Juve are understood to have offered around £9m, plus Adrian Mutu, for the striker who is only contracted to Roma until 2006.
The Stadio Olimpico side are believed to have turned that down by requesting two players, Mutu and Alessio Tacchinardi, plus £10.5m.
That may allow Inter to hijack Juve’s move on the player who is so desperately wanted by Bianconeri boss Fabio Capello.
Owner Massimo Moratti is allegedly ready to hand over £10m plus two players such as Emre or Giorgios Karagounis.
However, there is also the possibility that Inter may offer Roma the services of Alvaro Recoba.
The Uruguayan, who has also been linked with Sampdoria, is set to leave the San Siro after failing to break into the first team.
The proposed arrival of Recoba would apparently be welcomed by Francesco Totti, who signed a new deal with Roma this week after receiving ‘guarantees’ about summer signings.
Cassano has also been linked with Real Madrid but the Italian international is likely to remain in Serie A.
I think he needs his own thread now, we have now been romured heavely with him on almoste every god dam site and newspaper.
Atleast this deal is better then giving them Pizarro
