Ferrari Holds Inter Talks
Former Roma defender Matteo Ferrari could be set for a free transfer move to Inter after his agent confirmed that discussions are ongoing with the Nerazzurri.
The 29-year-old signed for Roma from Parma in 2004 but his time at the club has been rocky, and last season he only really played when there were injuries to first choice centre backs Philippe Mexes and Juan.
With his Roma contract now expired, Ferrari has decided to move on to pastures new, and the free agent has been linked with a host of a clubs, including Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Inter.
The most likely destination now appears to be the latter after the defender’s agent admitted that discussions with the Nerazzurri were ongoing.
“Ferrari won’t be going to Sampdoria,” Moreno Roggi told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“The negotiations have stalled.
“There are discussions underway with Inter, but we will have to see how things develop.”
Ferrari has won 11 caps for Italy but he would face fierce competition at Inter for a starting place, given the presence in defence of the likes of Ivan Cordoba, Marco Materazzi, Walter Samuel and Christian Chivu.
My heart = INTER...No Matter Win or Lose...
Zanetti : I still remember my first day at Inter. I arrived with a plastic bag with my boots inside and I crossed the crowd of fans who were asking who I was. That's where it all started.....
