Daily Transfer Rumors – June 18
According to reports from Sky, Matias Silvestre is the center of the current transfer window. The latest team to ask for the player is Luciano Spalleti’s Zenit but Palermo continue to resist. Out of all the teams (including Rubin Kazan), however, Inter seem to be the most interest and in the more advanced stage of negotiations. The track that could lead Silvestre to Inter is more concrete even more than Milan who continue to monitor the Argentinian defender.
Uncertainty Between The Posts
Uncertainty between the posts. The three Inter goalkeepers are still being decided at the moment. The only confirmed so far is Luca Castellazzi but we must wait and see if he is the second or third goal keeper. The first at the moment is Julio Cesar who could leave due to high salary (4.5 million). In his place, the hottest name is of course Udinese goalkeeper Samir Handanovic. The other scenario for Julio Cesar is that the Brazilian could stay to become backup to the Slovenian goalkeeper. That is the more difficult scenario.
For the third, Di Gennaro could be come a hypothesis although he could go on loan elsewhere to gain experience when he is recovered of a hip injury. Difficult also for Bardi: a goalkeeper that Inter are paying close attention on but also he could go on loan for another year.
So the search for Orlandoni’s replacement continues…
MD: Contact Inter-Afellay
It could be Ibrahim Afellay as the surprise signing of Inter. Bringing us this news is the El Mundo Deportivo, always close to anything and everything Barcelona. After the no of Lavezzi and the difficulty for Giovinco and Lucas, Inter are thinking of the Dutch winger. The player would receive the OK from Wesley Sneijder also who advised him to leave after a difficult year at Barcelona.
Contacts between player’s agents and Inter have taken place and negotiations could evolve soon.
Marca: Maicon-Real Relates To Diarra Sale
Soon we will see the Maicon to Real Madrid deal taking off because as of right now, negotiations are somewhat slowed. The reason? According to Marca, Real Madrid are waiting to cash in on Lassana Diarra and then use that money to reinvest on the transfer market, or more specifically Douglas Maicon, the one player that Real are really obsessed about.
Inter Favorite For Kolarov, The Serbian Wants An Italy Return
The name of Aleksandar Kolarov has skyrocketed to the top of transfer target list of Inter management. To confirm here is Alfredo Pedullà, a transfer expert.
“Kolarov strongly wants to return to Italy. The Serbian is one of the few specialists on the left win and for him, Inter are in pole position. But that being said, Inter must watch out for Juventus. The Bianconeri, in fact, have identified Kolarov as a possible reinforcement on the left wing and that after the inquires made by Inter for Giovinco, little appreciated by the club of Agnelli.”
Feyenoord Director: “Castaignos Wants To Come Back”
Feyenoord technical director, Martin Van Geel, announces to the Telegraaf that on his agenda, there is a meeting with the agent of Luc Castaignos to speak again on the possibility of going from Inter to Feyenoord on loan. “If Inter management wants to give him on loan, then we want the player strongly. He is very interested in coming back to us,” explain Van Geel.
Bologna In Juan’s Future?
The future of Juan Jesus cannot be painted in black and blue at least for the next season. The Brazilian has so many requests and especially from Bologna which will receive a response from Inter tomorrow according to the Gazzetta dello Sport. Juan Jesus arrived at Inter in January but due to injuries, did not play in an official match until the very last Serie A game against Lazio. Despite the lack of experience, many teams like Catania and Bologna would like to have the player on loan with the Rossoblu seem to have the most concrete interest.
Afellay: “I Want To Show Barca What I Can Do”
Ibrahim Afellay doesn’t seem caring too much on the latest transfer market rumors that link him to Inter. After an early Euro exit, the player of Barcelona, after a long break due to injury, makes clear of his intentions:
“I look forward to the new season. I wanted to return on the field and now I want to show Barcelona what I can give the club.”
Palermo Director: “Silvestre Wants To Leave”
Giorgio Perinetti, Palermo general director, has updated us on the Matias Silvestre’s situation:
“We have had some contacts and the most intense and detailed was truly with Inter. The Nerazzzurri have been more concrete however, I must also say that there were contacts with foreign clubs as well. Palermo are not a supermarket. We had a difficult year but the foundation is solid and we want to keep the more important players. Silvestre has voiced his willingness to leave. But having made a considerable investment on him, we must receive an equally important offer in case of a sale. We are talking with Inter, the club that has expressed interest in him. There are also foreign clubs but I can say that I never heard anything from Roma for Silvestre. Palermo paid 7 million euros a year ago and so if Silvestre leaves, the amount collected should be higher.”
Lille President: “Not Intended To Sell Debuchy”
A difficult objective to achieve. Inter have move decisively towards Mathieu Debuchy, Lille right-back. However, the French club does not intend to sell their starting right-back who is having a good Euro with France. Assuring us is president Michel Seydoux in an interview with La Voix du Nord:
“Currently in France, there is a clear economic problem and only PSG can spend millions and millions of euros. However, regarding Debuchy, I want to specify that we are not ready to sell him. Of course, it is understandable that many clubs like Debuchy but I assure you that Mathieu is part of our plans and we will not sell. He just renewed his contract a year ago and I did not do it by accident or just to keep him for one more season. Debuchy is a Lille player.”
A clear message by Lille president. It will require a big offer to convince Seydoux but for now the French club resists…
Sky: Contact Ranocchia-Conte But…
According to Sky, there has been a telephone contact between Andrea Ranocchia and Antonio Conte. Juventus are looking for a defender for the upcoming season and the Inter defender seems to fit in the plans of Conte. However, it is very difficult for Ranocchia to leave Inter as he is also considered essential and in the plans of Stramaccioni.
Inter Rejected 12 Million Plus Half Coutinho Request For Handanovic
It is no secret that Samir Handanovic is a transfer target of Inter who have had several discussions with the Bianconeri as confirmed by both parties. But now the official request of Udinese is much higher than expected. Half of Philippe Coutinho plus 12 million of cash. A figure and a counterpart that Inter do not like. The news was reported by Sky’s Gianluca Di Marzio:
“Udinese have asked 12 million and half of Coutinho but it will be difficult for Inter to negotiate with those terms and also because Stramaccioni wants to keep the Brazilian. So now the situation of Handanovic is still related to that of Julio Cesar. The Inter goalkeeper has some offers from Brazil but if he doesn’t leave, the Inter would not acquire the Slovenian keeper.”
Sky: Inter Pushing For Silvestre
Inter want to speed up time and negotiations as well as close the deal for Matias Silvestre according to Sky. In these hours, Inter have taken important steps and want to close the deal. Already tomorrow there will be a meeting with Palermo and there is the desire to acquire Silvestre as soon as possible. The agent is already in Italy and the Nerazzurri will be looking to put in half of Viviano in the deal.
