Brazilian defender Lucio has said that his club Inter Milan should persuade enough to sign Sao Paulo starlet Lucas either in the January transfer window or in the summer.

Lucas has been rated as one of the hottest young prospects in world football, despite being relatively young. As a result, only the top clubs in Europe are expected to match the transfer fee demanded by Sao Paulo. Inter Milan will be looking to sign the player, who will have no time settling to life in Italy due to the numerous Brazilians plying their trade in the region.


Inter Milan are reportedly ready to sell their star midfielder Wesley Sneijder to a club either in England or in Spain.

It is thought that the midfielder would be more interested to play in England given that he has already experienced the Spanish league.

Wesley Sneijder was signed from Real Madrid for around £14 million and he has to do to be one of the best signings of the decade. It is thought that he would command around £ 25 million in transfer fees, while the wages will be definitely a source of concern for clubs trying to sign the midfielder.


Inter Milan and Tottenham will be fighting each other when it comes to signing the Brazilian sensation Paulo Henrique Ganso. He is one of the greatest players in world football right now.

The 22-year-old currently plays for Brazilian club Santos. He recently was involved with Santos at the Club World Cup in Japan. Even though Santos were defeated by Barcelona in the final, many regard that Paulo Henrique Ganso was undoubtedly the best player alongside Neymar.


Inter defender heads towards exit

Inter Milan defender Cristian Chivu could be on the move in January after his agent revealed the player is open to approaches in January.

The 31-year-old’s contract is set to expire in the summer and as yet he has not entered into negotiations about a new one.

Because of this uncertainty over his future speculation has been rife that he could be on the move sooner rather than later, with the Premier League’s Liverpool one of several clubs he has been linked with.


New Inter Milan manager Claudio Ranieri has said that he has been extremely pleased with the way Inter have progressed under him. Inter Milan struggled a lot during the initial parts of the campaign, which led to the sacking of the manager Gian Piero Gasperini. Claudio Ranieri was appointed in place of Gian Piero Gasperini and he has been excellent so far.


It takes a lot to impress a hardened international, a World Cup winner and six times winner of Serie A, but Marco Materazzi remembers being stunned when Mario Balotelli burst on to the scene at Inter - he was THAT good!

Whilst Mario and Marco have both courted controversy since that first day when Balotelli turned up at training, both have proven themselves to be at the top of their game.

Marco remembers the first time he saw Mario, and believes he is destined for greatness.


Inter Milan have appointed Genoa boss Gian Piero Gasperini as the successor to Leonardo. The 53-year-old Gasperini takes over the Inter hotseat on a two-year contract.

"The official announcement will be made once all the final administrative formalities have been completed," Inter confirmed on their website.

Leonardo's departure paves the way for the Brazilian to take over at PSG, the French side now under the control of Qatar Sports Investments (QSI).



Inter Milan has said that there will be looking to end the season strongly and get over their disappointments thus.

Inter fell 2-1 at Schalke on Wednesday night and lost the quarter-final 7-3 on aggregate, thus dashing the club's hopes of defending its European title.

"I had dreamed about a great comeback," Inter coach Leonardo said. "Of course we could have done better but we failed to do so.


Inter Milan manager Leonardo has praised the performance of Yuto Nagatomo, who was extremely good against Sampdoria on Sunday.

Nagatomo, who usually plays left-back, filled in at right-back on this day for Brazilian World Cup defender Maicon, the player he regards as the best fullback in the world.

Former Kashima Antlers man Leonardo said Nagatomo made the transition beautifully as Inter moved within a couple points of leaders AC Milan in the championship race.



Inter Milan fullback Douglas Maicon has said that he is confident that they will bounce back in the league. Leonardo's side lost 1-0 to Juventus in the Derby d'Italia, but came close to equalising when Samuel Eto'o hit the bar after 89 minutes.

“They deserved the victory, but we pushed until the end and in the second half we massacred them, forcing Juventus to play in their own half even with 10 men behind the ball,” Maicon said.
