'Cassano to Genoa? That's a joke'

Inter technical director Marco Branca has rubbished reports that Antonio Cassano could leave the Nerazzurri this summer.

The 30-year-old joined Massimo Moratti's men last season from city rivals Milan, but struggled to fire the Beneamata to a European finish after a disappointing campaign.

Reports in the Italian Press had linked the Italy international with a move away from the San Siro, with Genoa a possible destination, but the transfer guru has laughed off those suggestions.

“There hasn't been, and there will not be, a meeting with Genoa,” he told reporters.

“Cassano to Genoa? That is just a joke.”
