Piero Ausilio: No swap deals with Juventus, if possible


Internazionale technical director Piero Ausilio says no swap deals with Juventus will be made in the near future.

The Nerazzurri were very close to swapping midfielder Fredy Guarin for striker Mirko Vucinic during last January's transfer window but the agreement was abruptly called off after the intervention of president Erick Thohir.

"I would like to underline the fact that the relationship with [Giuseppe] Marotta and [Fabio] Paratici is one of respect," said Ausilio.

"Having said that, if I have to buy or sell I would prefer to do business with another team. As it is, today I wouldn't make any business with Juventus."

Asked if things would change if the Bianconeri offer Arturo Vidal for only £4m, Ausilio said: "Well, I know the Juventus players well and if a nice offer is made I would think about it.

"What I was saying was linked to any swap deals between the two clubs."

Ausilio also says that he would politely turn down an offer from Juventus if the Bianconeri offer him a job.

"I've been at Internazionale for almost 20 years and I just can't see myself at another club," said Ausilio.

"So [if Juventus offer me a job] I would say 'No thanks'. Then fair enough, never say never but since I'm 42 years old and I cannot stay at Internazionale forever, an experience away from Italy would be nice, for my family as well."
