Silvestre takes Stankovic’s number?

A further indication that Dejan Stankovic is on his way out of Inter this summer has come in Matias Silvestre training in his old number.

The Serbian midfielder has been strongly linked with a departure from San Siro this summer, despite his will to stay.

Whilst recovering from an injury, his exclusion from the squad that began the club’s pre-season retreat was seen as a sign that his future does lie elsewhere.

The Gazzetta dello Sport report today that new arrival Silvestre’s award of the No 5 in training gear during this same retreat, normally given to Stankovic, is the latest indication that 33-year-old has no future with the Nerazzurri.
