Galatasaray blame Inter Milan's Ranocchia for transfer collapse

Galatasaray admit Inter Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia priced himself out of a move to the Turkish giants.

Ranocchia came close to joining Gala before Monday's Turkish transfer deadline.

"They wanted to make us pay too much, so the transfer collapsed at the last minute," said Galatasaray spokesman Ergun Sukru.

"We considered the costs to be unreasonable. He wanted €2.4m wages for just four months. It was laughable.

"We had an agreement with the club to take him until the end of the season on loan, but couldn't agree terms with the player."
