Miranda: 'I am an Inter leader'

Joao Miranda “feels the responsibility of my role as a leader at Inter” after becoming captain of Brazil.

The defender is not yet the captain of his club, as Mauro Icardi has that honour, but seemed to speak as if he was.

“I feel the responsibility of my role as a leader at Inter and this responsibility must be transformed on the field into the search for victory,” Miranda told Inter Channel.

Miranda confirmed as Brazil captain

Inter defender Miranda says he is ready to lead Brazil to the 2018 World Cup after being confirmed as the Selecao’s new captain.

Miranda takes the armband from Neymar, who recently captained Brazil to a gold medal at the Rio Olympics, and the centre-back is keen to reignite his country’s faltering qualifying campaign with a win in Quito on Thursday.

“I know that the national team have several leaders, but I’m still very happy to have this honour,” he was quoted as saying by FCInterNews.it.

A remarkable report in Brazil claims Gabriel Barbosa decided against going to Inter after talking to Nerazzurri defender Joao Miranda.

According to UOL Esporte, Santos striker Gabriel Barbosa - known as Gabigol - called up fellow Brazilian Miranda to ask about life at San Siro.

The response was far from encouraging and Miranda told him that there was little chance this team could challenge for titles.

Thohir: 'Here's Inter's plan'

President Erick Thohir reveals Inter will sell 'two or three, but certainly not six players', whilst confirming Roberto Mancini on the bench.

The Nerazzurri tycoon will have a tough time on the transfer market this year, as he must fortify an expensive squad without falling foul of FIFA's rules on irresponsible debt.

Mancini-Inter clash on Toure

Roberto Mancini wants to keep five core players and sign Yaya Toure, but the latter costs too much for Inter.

The Nerazzurri's excellent start to the campaign last year proved deceptive, and they failed to reconquer the summits of Serie A, thus limiting their movement on the transfer market this summer.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Coach Mancini has laid down his conditions for remaining with the club. In particular, he is categorical that the five core players of the Biscione squad cannot be sold.

Inter foundations are set

After one full season together, Inter’s three men at the back have proven to be the perfect foundation to build a successful team, writes Paul Hill.

With four matches to play, Inter are on course for their best goals against record since last winning Serie A at the turn of the decade. A vital reason for this has been the three men at the heart of the defensive set-up.

Viewing the squad statistics for this term, Samir Handanovic, Jeison Murillo and Miranda are the three names at the top of the minutes accumulated list. It is stability such as this and not a 30-goal striker that will get the Nerazzurri challenging again.

Roberto Mancini has named his Inter squad to face Frosinone, without the suspended Miranda.

Stevan Jovetic could play his first game since February, while Mauro Icardi is again included after his goalscoring return against the Granata.

Inter: Mata, Bruma, Neustadter

Inter may swap Miranda with Manchester United's Juan Mata, then aim for Roman Neustadter and Jeffrey Bruma.

The Nerazzurri's Brazilian defender is believed to be the target of possible future Coach Jose Mourinho, and he is valued at €20m.

But President Erick Thohir may demand more than just cash for the player, as Tuttosport report of a possible exchange with the Red Devils that would bring midfielder Juan Mata to Serie A.

Manchester United are also believed to be after Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic and defender Jeison Murillo.
