Guarin To Juve Will Not Go Away

by David on July 12, 2014

Guarin-InterWhile most of the attention has been on Inter‘s incoming midfielder players like Yann M’Vila, at some point Inter have to turn their attention to who will be leaving.

Top of that list will be Fredy Guarin, as his potential move to Juventus continues to make headlines.

It looks like Juve are getting set to sell Arturo Vidal to Manchester United and when that happens I expect them to make a offer for Guarin of around €15 million.

Inter are desperate to get rid of Guarin’s high wages and according to an article in “Tuttosport” Inter have offered Guarin to almost anyone in Europe who would listen.

erick-thohir2Inter President Erick Thohir says it will take two to three years before the club are at the level he wants them to be.

“My objective is to take Inter back to competing in Europe,” Thohir is quoted as saying by FcInterNews.it.

“The directors and I, however, know full well that we will need two or three years to build a team that will be able to compete at that level.”

Thohir then revealed that Inter were his team of preference even before he took over at San Siro.

“Inter, incidentally, were one of the teams that I followed most and that I was passionate about.

Il biscione e l'fc internazionaleInter sporting director Piero Ausilio spoke to Sky Italia last nigth after travelling up to the team’s pre-season training camp in Pinzolo from Milan.

It’s a busy period with lots of negotiations ongoing. Have you been able to find a bit of time to speak to Andrea Ranocchia after Walter Mazzarri promoted him in his press conference yesterday?

“I’ve said hello to him as I have with all the others but no, we haven’t had time to talk yet. There’s no problem when both parties want the same thing.”

Il biscione e l'fc internazionaleTwo more players have been linked with Inter today as the club continues its quest to rebuild its midfield and add a another striker.

The midfielder is Real Madrid‘s Asier Illarramendi, who is another defensive minded player. Now Inter are set to sign Yann M’Vila and have been strongly linked with Chilean midfielder Gary Medel so it is unclear whether Illarramendi is in additional to these two players or whether he is a fall back in case one of them falls through.

interfans2I wrote yesterday how that 21-year-old full-back Cristiano Biraghi was heading to Chievo on a two-year loan. Well it seems that Biraghi is not the only Inter youngster heading out on loan as Alfred Duncan is going to Cesena .

The talented but young midfielder will spend next season on loan with Cesena where he will hopefully gain more experience and playing time. Expect this deal to be announced either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Dodo To Have Inter Medical

inter-fansThe signing of former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole is having a domino effect as the man he is replacing in the Roma line-up, Dodo, appears on his way to rivals Inter Milan.

The 22-year-old Brazilian defender is expected to join the Nerazzurri on two-year loan, with the option to make the deal permanent for a fee of €7 million. Dodo will reportedly undergo a medical with Inter on Wednesday before completing his move.

I would expect that Dodo will challenge Yuto Nagatomo for that left wingback position in Walter Mazzarri’s 3-5-2 formation.

Il biscione e l'fc Internazionale IIChievo have signed Inter Milan full-back Cristiano Biraghi on a two-year loan deal.

The 21-year-old defender has had limited opportunities to make his mark at the San Siro and has spent much of his professional career out on loan.

Last season, he made 22 appearances as Catania were relegated from Serie A, but he will have another chance to shine with the Flying Donkeys, who had already snapped up Inter teammate Francesco Bardi earlier this week.

“I wanted to take part in the Chievo project and know that here I can find a relaxed environment where I can focus on football,” Biraghi told Chievo’s official website.

vidic-interNew Inter Milan signing Nemanja Vidic was unveiled to the media on Friday after and the defender said he regrets not making the move to Italy a few years earlier.

“I should have arrived to Italy many years ago,” Vidic told the club’s official website. “Finally I have the opportunity to play here. I don’t think this is a step backwards in my career, I believe this is a step forward for me.

“Italian football suits my game well and, as I said before, I have joined one of the big European clubs. English football is different to Italian but that doesn’t mean that Italian is more simple.”
