Inter Milan chief Marco Branca has defended his transfer market work this summer.

Inter missed out on Lucas and Ezequiel Lavezzi, who both signed for PSG.

"We started in advance, then we first realized that these changes did not fit. I do not understand those who criticize me for the sale of Julio Cesar and Maicon.

"At some point in the history of the club you have to do these things, even for the players concerned."
