Inter: Pazzini staying, Lucas wanted

Inter President Massimo Moratti claims that Giampaolo Pazzini is going nowhere, while he’s fuelled suggestions of a move for Lucas.

Pazzini has stated that he is no longer part of the project at San Siro and Brazilian ace Lucas, of Sao Paulo, has admitted contact with the Beneamata.

“Pazzini will continue to be one of our strikers,” Moratti told Sky Sport Italia. “He’ll remain at Inter. His words were just an emotional outburst.

“As for Lucas, he’s not just a dream but an objective. We are certainly thinking about him, but we’ll have to see if there are the conditions in place to close the deal.”

The oil baron was inevitably asked for his thoughts on Julio Cesar, the Brazilian goalkeeper who has been told to find a new team after the arrival of Samir Handanovic.

“Julio Cesar will always be a great goalkeeper,” Moratti noted. “We have a lot of affection for him, but things change with time…”
