Sulley Muntari has admitted that a move away from Inter Milan before the transfer window closes looks unlikely. Speculation had linked London clubs Tottenham and Fulham with the midfielder; however neither have made concrete offers.
The Ghana international is familiar with Spurs boss Harry Redknapp as they were together for one season at Portsmouth, before Muntari departed to Inter Milan in 2008.
Muntari spent the second half of last season on loan at Sunderland, but the Black Cats decided not to sign him on a permanent basis.
Despite the defensive minded player’s desire to move, with just over a day remaining in the transfer window, Muntari accepts that it would take something dramatic to seal a deal away from Inter.
“I am an Inter Milan player and I expect to still play with this club this season unless something dramatic happens for me to move in the next 48 hours,” he said.
Muntari’s representative Claudio Mossio confirmed that there had been interest from some Premier League clubs, but insists they will have to move urgently to conclude any deals.
“Tottenham and Fulham are several of the Premier League teams that are interested in Muntari,” he told the Press Association.
“But right now his destination is not unclear. The situation must be resolved as soon as possible because the transfer market ends tomorrow.
“Muntari wants to play in the Premier League. He really likes the tournament and his family would be very happy in London.”
