Malesani rules out Viviano sale

Bologna boss Alberto Malesani has ruled out selling Italy international goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano to Inter during the January transfer window.

Earlier this week La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed that Inter were considering buying Viviano outright in response to Julio Cesar's ongoing injury problems.

Inter already own 50 per cent of Viviano's rights and had hoped to reach an agreement with Bologna, much like they did with Genoa over Andrea Ranocchia in December.

"Selling does us no good," Malesani said. "If we are to survive, I'd give no one away. You can change something and rebalance the team.

"However, we want to maintain the structure of the squad which has got results for us up until now in order to do better this year.

"If we do well, there will be glory for everyone," he concluded.
