While Italian media insist Jonathan is ready to sign, Santos warn “we have not had any contact with Inter.”
The right-back, who has been compared with Douglas Maicon, was quoted as saying today he was looking forward to joining the Nerazzurri.
However, Santos President Luis Albaro Ribeiro painted a very different picture in Lancenet.
“We have not had any contact with Inter. On Wednesday we won the Copa Libertadores, on Thursday we celebrated, Friday we were travelling, so let's say our minds were on something other than the transfer market.
“I know the player spoke about an offer from Inter and was very happy about it, but so far I have not been contacted by the Nerazzurri.”
