Bari Defender Andrea Ranocchia Welcomes Inter Link

The youngster admits he could not turn down a summer move to the San Siro.
On-loan Bari centre-back Andrea Ranocchia says interest from Serie A giants Inter is flattering but his future is in the hands of his parent club Genoa and will be sorted out at the end of the season.

The Italian press is convinced that Inter have already agreed terms with Genoa to sign the 22-year-old in the summer, and he told Tuttomercatoweb: “I’m pleased with this link because Inter are Italian champions and are still in contention for the Champions League: who wouldn’t be happy?

“But I don’t know anything about it yet. No-one has called me and now I’m just focused on recovering from my injury.

“What will be we’ll have to see. I’m a Bari player until June and we’ll see what the presidents decide. But the important thing now is for me to get back up and running.”

Ranocchia went under the knife in January after damaging knee ligaments and hopes to play a part in the final games of the season.

“I think it will take a month and a half to train with the team,” he explained.

“I have the final consult scheduled for mid-April. I’m feeling well now, I’m working hard and I have resumed running.”
