Fabio Cannavaro has poured cold water on a possible move to The Premiership after stating he does not wish to leave Internazionale or Italian football.

The former Parma defender has been linked with moves to Chelsea and Manchester United but such talk seems premature.

“Firstly, I do not want to leave Inter,” stated Cannavaro.

“They are Italian, I feel Italian and I still consider our league the best in the world.

“If I was forced to leave Inter, I would only move to another Serie A team.”
