Genoa have dismissed speculation that they are prepared to sell Miguel Veloso to Italian giants Inter this month.
The 25-year-old has been paired with the Nerazzurri given the close transfer links between both Serie A clubs.
Nevertheless, Rossoblu sporting director Stefano Capozucca has told SportItalia that he doesn’t expect the Portuguese international to be on the move.
“I know of no interest in Miguel Veloso from Inter,” the Marassi official noted. “He’s also one of President Enrico Preziosi’s favourite players so I don’t think he’ll be sold.”
The midfielder joined Genoa in the summer of 2010 from Sporting Lisbon.
He’s started in all of his 17 Serie A appearances so far this season and he’s scored two goals to date.
