Inter Milan club president Massimo Moratti has declared that striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no longer on the market after returning to training with Italian champions.
Inter Milan had previously stated that they were willing to sell the Sweden international, last season’s Serie A top scorer, who was linked to Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United after saying he needed a fresh challenge.
No club were willing to meet the asking price of about 70 million euros (£60 million) which, according to Moratti, means he will now be staying put.
Moratti reportedly said to reporters on Saturday that striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is absolutely off the transfer market.
He also added that Chelsea centre back Ricardo Carvalho and his Portugal midfield compatriot Deco were unlikely to join Inter after talks broke down over the price tag.
