Juve fail in Ranocchia bid – report

Sky Sport Italia are claiming Inter have told Juventus that Andrea Ranocchia is not for sale this summer.

The Old Lady reportedly offered €12m to the Nerazzurri for their Italian international centre-back.

Despite having his problems this term – he played in just 12 Serie A games – the Nerazzurri see him as a key figure for the future.

Juventus boss Antonio Conte knows the 24-year-old well having coached him at Arezzo and Bari in the past.

The San Siro giants want to keep a tight grip on the former Genoa player as they are set to wave goodbye to veteran Lucio this summer.
