As we reported earlier tonight Felipe Melo has renewed his contract with Galatasaray which makes an Inter move for the Brazilian unlikely. According to the reports Melo didn’t want to wait for Inter forever and it seems like Inter has chosen to rely on another player instead of signing Melo, non other than the youngster Assane Gnoukouri.

The journalist Marco Barzaghi who has good insight in Inter writes the following on Twitter:

“Melo stays at Galatasaray because Inter wants to give Gnoukouri a real chance”

Gnoukouri who presented himself to the Inter world after two great performances against Milan and Roma has been one of the best players for Inter during the pre season and the talent could be a pleasant surprise on the midfield the coming season.
