Internazionale claim that Cristian Chivu is interested in a move to the San Siro.

Inter spokesman Marco Branca admits there is competition – believed to come from Real Madrid and Barcelona – but is confident of securing a deal for the Romanian.

“There is an agreement with the player, who frequently underlined his will to come here, but not with the club (Roma),” Branca told the Italian press.

“We will see how the situation goes, but there is a chance of finding an agreement.”
