Italian journalist Fabio Ravezzani believes that the only reason that Inter signed Cagliari wingback Raoul Bellanova was because they also wanted to sign Bremer from Torino.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Telelombardia, via FCInter1908, Ravezzani claimed that as he understands it, the fact that Bellanova and Bremer share an agent was a key factor in the Nerazzurri’s decision to sign Bellanova.

Bellanova was brought in by Inter during last summer transfer window, with the 22-year-old the Nerazzurri’s designated reinforcement at wingback after the departure of Ivan Perisic.

The wingback arrived on loan from Cagliari, with the Nerazzurri also having the opposition to sign him on a permanent basis from the Rossoblu at the end of the current season.

Inter had also been chasing then-Torino defender Bremer during the summer, although they missed out on the Brazilian to Juventus.

According to Ravezzani, however, the Nerazzurri’s pursuits of the two players were not entirely separate.

“It was a complementary signing,” he claimed.

“I’ve been told he was signed by Inter in preparation for the Bremer signed, since he has the same agent.”

“Obviously something went wrong,” Ravezzani went on, in reference to the Nerazzurri’s high-profile failure to land Bremer.
