Ranocchia set for Inter showdown

Andrea Ranocchia could hold talks about his future at Inter with club officials as soon as Tuesday afternoon.

The defender joined the Nerazzurri in January 2011 in a deal which totalled about €18m, but he had a problematic 2011-12.

The centre-back was only used in 12 League games and subsequently missed out on a place in Italy’s Euro 2012 squad.

Torino are keen on landing the player on loan, but there is the possibility that the Beneamata could sell for a fee between €18m and €20m.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the former Arezzo, Bari and Genoa man is of interest to Manchester City, Napoli, Zenit St Petersburg and Paris Saint-Germain.

Ranocchia will fly back to Italy today after a brief holiday abroad.
