Inter cancel Vucinic-Guarin deal

Inter Milan president Erick Thohir has explained his reasons for calling off the swap deal between Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic and Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin.

After speaking to my closest aides and exchanging views with Massimo Moratti and his son Angelomario this morning, I decided not to continue negotiations with Juventus.

I felt it was not possible to reach an agreement on a deal in which the opinions of the two parties differed and which did not offer a clear financial or technical benefit to the club.

As was said in the recent club statement, I have already asked our sporting directors to evaluate other transfer opportunities that will enable us to strengthen the team in line with the financial parameters imposed by Financial Fair Play.
