“Gomez and Barrientos are certainly two extraordinary players and they are not going unobserved,” Branca told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“We are talking with the Catania directors and you’ll soon know something. If anything happens then it will take place within the next seven or 10 days.
“But what I want to underline at this moment is the excellent relationship that Inter and Catania have – that is the most important thing.”
