However, Mario Giuffredi doesn't believe any deal will happen.
"I am a close friend of Valentino Angeloni, the ds of Sunderland, I hear from him often and I can say that he has never asked anything about Biraghi. Never talked with me but I know that there was some contact with Inter," he told TMW.
"The Premier League is the league where all players aspire to get to and it is obvious that even Cristiano appreciates it very much. But for now there was nothing."
