Inter on chances of netting Sanchez

There is a "60 per cent chance" of Inter signing Alexis Sanchez from Udinese, says President Massimo Moratti. He also discussed bids for Daniele De Rossi and Javier Pastore.

Talking to Inter Channel, the Nerazzurri chief was quizzed by fans on the club's plans for the transfer market.

"It's hard to give a precise reply at a moment in which we are trying to figure out if the clubs will sell, how they will sell, the prices, wages and whether certain exchanges will be able to be made," he stated.

"However, let's say that the player with whom we are speaking, and I don't know the odds of our success, is certainly Sanchez, because we've been talking about it for a long time.

"Also because he's a player with many qualities and because we've opened a certain kind of discussion with Udinese.

"Let's say, not that he's definitely coming, but there is a 60 per cent chance that he will arrive."

Inter were also linked with Roma's De Rossi on Thursday, but Moratti seemed to cool those rumours.

"De Rossi, in my opinion, is not a bad idea at all, but I don't believe we have initiated any kind of negotiations with Roma, also because the club is going through a re-organisation," he added.

"I do not think there are such contacts to be able to study what can be done, and then there's the fact that the player is tied to his club and especially the city.

"But I too consider him a player of great quality and character, and therefore I don't think for him to have an experience with us would be a bad thing..." he smiled.

Moratti then totally dismissed a bid for Palermo starlet Pastore.

"We all know that Pastore is excellent, he also played well against us in the Italian Cup Final, but I don't think that negotiations are possible."
