“The deal for Godin is very much alive, we are doing all that we can to bring him to Cagliari,” he told reporters at the introductory press conference for Gabriele Zappa and Riccardo Sottil.
“If we are able to sign him, we’ll be happy because we are trying to build a side that has experience and youth. He is an important player so it is a complex deal.
“Inter also holds all the card when it comes to [Radja] Nainggolan so we’ll see at the end of the session, but we won’t take a step that is longer than our legs.
“If there is a deal to be made at the end of the window we will look at everything.”
Last season Godin netted two goals in 36 appearances for Inter.
