Inter president Massimo Moratti has issued a hands-off warning to Real Madrid and other clubs interested in signing striker Diego Milito.
Reports in Italy claimed the Argentina international could follow Inter coach Jose Mourinho to the Spanish capital this summer, but Moratti said the player was not for sale.
“I only say one thing, there’s a difference between Milito and our coach, Mourinho,” Moratti told the club’s official website.
“Mourinho has a clause in his contract by which if the clause is exercised, he can leave. However, Milito doesn’t and hence, the discussion is over.”
Milito was one of the players brought in last summer after Zlatan Ibrahimovic departed for Barcelona. The Argentina international completed an impressive debut season at Inter by scoring both goals in Saturday’s Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich in Madrid.
The South American is under contract with the Italian champions until June 2013.
