Ranocchia stalling on Inter contract

Andrea Ranocchia is likely to be named as Inter’s new captain, but reports are that he may not stay at San Siro for long.

With Javier Zanetti’s retirement, the central defender is likely to be given the armband for next season.

Sport Mediaset though, have revealed that the Italy international is reticent to sign a new deal with the Nerazzurri.

His contract expires in 2015, and it is suggested that the 26-year-old is unwilling to put pen to paper because Juventus are interested in his services.

The Bianconeri have been keeping a keen eye on Ranocchia, and Mediaset maintain that Antonio Conte’s men have made the centre-back’s representative aware that they would be happy to pick him up on a free next summer.
