Inter Reach Agreement With Genoa Over Permanent Signing Of Andrea Ranocchia - Report

Inter have bagged Ranocchia from Genoa for the future as they hammer out a deal for him...
Inter have reached an agreement with Genoa over the permanent transfer of Andrea Ranocchia, and he will join them in 2011 once he recovers from a knee ligament injury.

According to Tuttosport, Inter have agreed to pay Genoa €15million, plus offer the services of a number of youth team players on loan in return for Ranocchia.

But, he will not arrive until January 2011 at the earliest. 22-year-old Ranocchia joined Bari from Genoa on loan in the summer, but a cruciate ligament injury he sustained in January is likely to keep him out until the end of term.

He will return to Genoa once his loan deal expires and continue physiotheraphy there until he is fully fit.

This hasn't scuppered Inter's penchant for him though after convincing Genoa to strike a deal.
