Inter bemoan 'crazy' transfer market

Inter Milan's sporting director Marco Branca has bemoaned the 'crazy' transfer market that has seen his side pull out of the running for both Carlos Tevez and Alexis Sanchez.

• Moratti rules out Blanc move
• Lucio wants two-year extension

Inter are keen to rebuild their squad in order to take back the Serie A title they lost to rivals Milan this season and have been linked with big money moves for both South Americans over recent weeks. However, with one eye on UEFA's financial fair play regulations, Inter are tightening their belt, which means they have missed out on some star talent.

"Tevez is a great player, a great character, but absolutely no,'' Branca told BBC Sport. ''His salary means it is out of the question. The market is crazy at the moment and it is hard to compete. He is a great player but a move for him is out of the question. We have to organise our finances for the financial fair play rules in the next two years.

"We don't have the same revenues from merchandise and match day as the English sides. We are looking for younger players now with great talent, who we can develop."

Branca also admitted that Inter have been priced out of deals for Sanchez.

"Take [Udinese winger] Alexis Sanchez, a player we liked," he said. "Manchester City raised their bid for him to €35 million plus a bonus, which ruled us out of the race. In the end, the player preferred to go to Barcelona and they got him for €28 million and a €10 million bonus. Not many clubs can afford that."
