Genoa sporting director Stefano Capozucca has told the press that the club have agreed a co-ownership deal with champions Inter for Andrea Ranocchia.
However, the 6'5". defender will definitely remain with the Grifoni for the 2010-11.
"The transition in [co]ownership to Inter is official, but he will stay remain with Genoa this season," he revealed to fcinter1908.it.
The centre-back has spent the last two seasons on loan with Bari and was very impressive before succumbing to a knee injury last season in January. His efforts helped the Galletti to one of the best defensive records in Serie A at that point and he was reportedly being considered for a call-up to Italy's World Cup squad.
The move is a blow for Bari, who were hoping to secure the player on loan again after losing Leonardo Bonucci to Juventus earlier in the summer.
