Julio Cesar, Dejan Stankovic and Diego Forlan have been omitted from the Inter squad which has been called up for pre-season training.
The outfit are trying to get rid of the trio and their exclusion from their Pinzolo training retreat, which starts today, has underlined that they are not in the club’s plans.
Cesar’s place in goal will be taken by Udinese’s Samir Handanovic, the club want to sell midfielder Stankovic and Forlan is in talks to have his contract cancelled.
