Branca: Inter will not buy in January

By Football News



Inter Milan director Marco Branca says the club will not add to their ranks in the January transfer window.

Inter have been linked with players such as Willian of Shakhtar Donetsk and Ajax's Christian Eriksen, but Branca has claimed they will not attempt to strengthen their squad mid-season due to financial constraints.

"It's not down to where we are in the table whether we will make signings in January. There are other factors to consider. At this moment in time, there's no way we'll be investing in January for other reasons," Branca told Sky Italia.

"It's the same situation in many other industry sectors. We're in an economic crisis."

Branca also had his say on Wesley Sneijder's contract situation, but he refused to confirm whether or not Inter have asked the Dutchman to take a pay cut.

"Is it true we've asked him to take a pay cut? That's our business."

Inter sit second in the Serie A table, trailing leaders Juventus by four points.
