After Juan, Inter Milan chief Branca goes for more Brazilian talent

Inter Milan chief Marco Branca enjoyed a successful trip to Brazil last week.

Not only did Branca close a deal for Internacional defender Juan Jesus, but he also held a new round of talks with Sao Paulo for midfielder Lucas.

Mediaset says Branca was encouraged after the meeting, with Sao Paulo assuring him a deal could be done after the London Olympics this year.

Lucas' arrival has already been endorsed by Inter defender Lucio, who said: "Between Neymar and Lucas, I would take Lucas everytime."

Branca also registered Inter's interest with Vasco da Gama for Romulo, Internacional for Oscar and Gremio for Fernando during his stay.
