Former Inter’s Sporting director Marco Branca today spoke to Corriere dello Sport. The 52 year old Italian once helped Inter to secure the likes of Diego Milito, Lucio, Wesley Sneijder etc and left the club in 2014. In his brief interview, he highlighted the ongoing Coutinho transfer saga:

“I am also hearing he will be joining Barcelona for huge sum. When I was at Inter I bought him for pretty less. It was about 4m.”

Then he went on to talk about Inter’s current situation:

“Inter needs some reinforcements. But the thing is they don’t have Uefa Champions League to play at this season. So it may seem difficult to attract player who can be decisive for the team in this window.”

“I think they should target someone who has a similar profile like Vecino. He can do a lot of running, can have a good work ethic and be a precious asset for the team.”
