Daily Transfer Rumors – June 15
The domino effect: the Brazilian and striker leave if Inter reach their transfer objectives.
What the transfer market is saying is this: Inter are making strong inquiries, they are looking around and they have the direct counterparts. Maicon, Julio Cesar, Pazzini to Debuchy, Handanovic and Destro. Where will JC go? And if Mattia comes, Pazzo cannot stay… The Inter puzzle at this moment is complicated: perhaps nothing will happen, or perhaps half of a revolution.
Handanovic and Cou Two months ago, the first rumor came and the meeting last week was confirmed: Inter seem to have decided that the Slovenian Handanovic is the right man between the goal posts. One of the reasons is that the current Udinese goalkeeper would make less than half of what Julio Cesar is making because Inter, in addition to rejuvenate the team, want to cut down the mountain of wages. From here, saying that the deal is done is way off because Udinese want Coutinho on the plate (at least half of him), and Inter will have to think about it very carefully. Besides that, they still have to talk to Julio Cesar.
Destro and Longo Meanwhile yesterday Inter (which met with Catania for Gomez and Brescia for the renewal of co-ownership of Tassi) received this news: Siena and Genoa have found an agreement for Destro with the Bianconeri will not exercise their right to purchase a half which will leave the player to the Rossoblu in exchange for a counterpart to be identified. This is the first step towards Destro: next week Branca will meet with Preziosi to also talk about Longo, one that Inter want the full ownership of.
Pazzo, Maicon and the Capitals It is clear however that the moment Destro arrives at Inter, Pazzini will be on the market: for now, everything is just a hypothesis but sources close to the player suggest that he would not mind a phone call from Ancelotti who wanted him during his Chelsea days. And Maicon? Real, PSG and Chelsea. For another Brazilian: Lucio whose agent has already said farewell to the Nerazzurri. Fenerbahce want the player and to replace him, Inter are interested in Silvestre.
Inter Met Kolarov’s Agent, Would LIke Wage Reduced
The name of Aleksandar Kolarov is getting warmer by these hours for Inter. There is still no true negotiation but something is moving. Assurances coming from Serbia which state that the strong will of the full-back is to leave Manchester City because he wants to play as starter. The real problem, however, is his wage. At Manchester City, the Serbian is making almost 6 million euros annually between fixed wage and bonuses, an absolute unreachable figure for Inter at the moment.
And yet, Inter continue to assess the situation and they did so directly with the player’s agent Sergio Berti which, according to Serbian press, has met with Inter officials. Inter, of course, requested to know how much Kolarov wants to make and is there a desire to reduce his salary in a substantial way. “At this moment, Inter are far ahead than Juventus because Juve want a loan move. Inter can go further.”
In short, there was inquiries for the defender but the wage is very high…
Catania Director: “No Negotiation With Inter For Gomez”
It was widely reported yesterday that Inter officials have made important steps towards Alejandro Gomez by meeting with Catania. However, today in an interview with Itasportpress, Nicola Salerno, the new sporting director of Catania, denies any negotiations with Inter for Gomez.
“There is no ongoing negotiations with Inter for Papu. Andrea Romanò to Catania? Good player, good kid, but we have never asked Inter for the boy.”
Agreement CSKA Moscow-Corinthians For Paulinho However…
Earlier today, the Paulinho idea seemed to fade away from Inter and that the player would go to CSKA Moscow after the Copa Libertadores for a figure of 8 million euros. Now according to Sky, yes, there is indeed an agreement between these two clubs for 8 million euros but still missing the yes from the player in whom Inter have shown great interest. Paulinho has not decided anything yet and perhaps he is not too convinced of Russia as a possible destination. He is still waiting for a call from Italy but in the mean time CSKA are the favorite.
PSG Said No To Bosingwa, Going All Out For Maicon?
A straight up no. That from Carlo Ancelotti to José Bosingwa, the full-back at Chelsea has an expiring contract and one that PSG could sign as a free solution. According to Tutto Mercato Web, the coach of PSG has rejected this option and thus, Maicon could really become the number one target for the big spender Paris Saint-Germain.
Palermo Director: “Silvestre? Open To Discuss”
The executive vice president of Palermo Giorgio Perinetti is open to negotiations for the defender Matias Silvestre. The central defender has been chosen by Andrea Stramaccioni for the Inter defense next season but economic agreement is still very far away. “Silvestre, just like Migliaccio, is a player for whom we are willing to discuss. Napoli? If they ask, we could talk about it.”
Bologna Want 22 Million For Gaston Ramirez
Bologna have decided to up the ante for Gaston Ramirez by giving his astronomical value: as much as 22 million euros according to report from Sky. The amount seems designed precisely to keep the young Uruguayan for at least another season and then perhaps sell him with an even higher figure. Ramirez has been linked to big Italian clubs like Inter and Juventus in the past.
Paulinho’s Agent: “CSKA? We Have Two Other Options”
He is close to CSKA but nothing is decided. Paulinho’s fate is yet to be written despite the 8 million offer coming from Russia. Here is agent Bernardo, who a month ago met with Branca at Inter headquarters, on the situation:
“The Russians are interested and they came here in Brazil to test the waters. However, it is not true that there is already an agreement. We also have two other options.”
“Two other options” could be Inter and Roma with the Nerazzurri are very interested.
No Inter For Giovinco, Agreement Parma-Juve
It has been widely reported by the Italian media that Juve and Parma have been able to find agreement for Sebastian Giovinco. According to Tutto Mercato Web, the Bianconeri will fully own the Italian midfielder after paying a fee of almost 13 million euros (other reports say 10 million plus two players) for Parma’s half. So no Giovinco for Inter after missing out on Lavezzi and Lucas remains just a dream.
Udinese Director: “Handanovic To Inter? Nothing Decided”
Udinese sporting director Fabrizio Larini discusses the rumors that Samir Handanovic is just a few steps away from Inter.
“It is not true that we are almost at the end of negotiations. For now, we have only learned the interest from Inter for our player and there were some contacts but nothing has been decided.”
The Bianconeri evaluate their goalkeeper at 15 million and want Coutinho included in the deal as requested by Pozzo months ago. Branca and Ausilio said no as Stramaccioni considers Cou as an important part in his team.
West Ham To Put 8 Million On The Table For Castaignos
A few weeks ago it seemed that Luc Castaignos was close to a return to Holland with his former team Feyenoord. However, West Ham are the one that have make important and official steps forward. A couple of days ago, Sam Allardyce was seen in Milan and of course contacts were made between both clubs. Now, according to Sky’s Gianluca Di Marzio, the English club is ready to offer 8 million euros for the young Dutchman. Everything is up to Inter to decide.
Paulinho Waiting For Inter
Sky has updated us on the situation surrounding the Corinthians midfielder Paulinho. “Corinthians are ready to say no to the 8 million from CSKA Moscow for Paulinho. Inter, at this point, are the favorite team of Paulinho although the Nerazzurri have not yet decided on the player.” It seems that the player is not very convinced of Russia as a possible destination as he wants to go to a bigger league and Serie A (Inter are the favorite but there is also Roma) could be on top of his list.
Sao Paulo President: “Our Intention Is To Keep Lucas”
Lucas is nothing more than just a dream on the horizon. Very, very far away. At least in this very moment. To reinforcement the idea that it is going to be a pain in the ass to sign Lucas, here is Sao Paulo president Juvenal Juvencio to the Corriere dello Sport: “Our intention is to keep Lucas at Sao Paulo. We will try. Lucio? He is surely an element that we like.”
