Today Inter sporting director, Piero Ausilio, revealed that Argentinean midfielder Cambiasso will be leaving the team this summer after turning down a new contract offer. “We speak everyday” explained the Inter director, “and have shared a lot of things together, we are friends. We have a mutual respect, and this morning we spoke officially, and agreed for strategic reasons we will not be renewing his contract. Today, in a friendly manner we discussed this.”
Cambiasso who joined Inter in 2004, will not be the only player allowed to leave this summer, as Ausilio reconfirmed the news that Inter will be parting company with Diego Milito, “With Milito we have known for some time that he wanted to change, but he has always been professional.”
Speaking about other potential departures, the Inter sporting director mentioned that he hoped Ranocchia will stay once he contract is up, “The time has come where we would like to extend our relationship with him. He can sign whenever he wants.” However, speaking on the renewal of 26 year old Argentinean midfielder, Alvarez’s contract renewal, Ausilio admitted that things have not been going smoothly, “Alvarez has two years left on his contract and we want to keep him. We have spoken about renewing his contract, but we have yet to reach an agreement financially.” The main obstacle in renewing Alvarez’s contract, explained Auselio, is the player’s own agent, “We have seen each other only a few times. He lives and works in Argentina, whenever he comes to us we can finalise the agreement”.
Auselio also discussed the future of Inter manager, stating that he sure the manager will remain at the club for the future, “I don’t think there will be any problems. I am convinced that he will be happy to stay with us.”
