As well known, one of Inter Milan’s priorities in the Winter transfer window is the signing of a high-rated midfielder, and after that also Corinthians president Mario Gobbi has declared, during an interviewed accorded to Estradao, that 24 year old Paulinho won’t move, the nerazzurri seem to be ready to swoop on Chelsea 34 year old Frank Lampard: the England national, whose contract with the Blues will expire at the end of the season, is also tracked by Lazio. The Lombard club is also seeking a defender, and, according to Il Mattino, could start a negotiation with Napoli involving 28 year old Matias Silvestre and 32 year old Hugo Armando Campagnaro. Regarding the possible departures, 24 year old attacking midfielder Ricardo Alvarez is required by River Plate, even if the player’s evaluation doesn’t ease an eventual transfer; according to the Daily Mail, Liverpool seem still interested in 28 year old Wesley Sneijder, while, on the contrary, Paris Saint-Germain Sports Director Leonardo has denied any contacts with the Holland international.

AC Milan 23 year old forward Alexandre Pato seems always closer to a transfer to Corinthians: Gilmar Veloz, agent of the Brazil international, has in fact declared that tomorrow there will be a decisive meeting with Milan’s Chief Executive Adriano Galliani and that the Timao have accomplished all the Lombard club’s requests. With the money earned by selling the former Internacional player, the rossoneri will try to sign a high-rated forward: Manchester City chairman Sheikh Mansour has declared to The Sun that 22 year old Mario Balotelli won’t leave, but Milan don't seem intentioned to give up their hopes to sign the Italy international.
