Inter captain Javier Zanetti will travel to Pavia tomorrow and undergo an operation on his Achilles.
The veteran Nerazzurri man torn the tendon in his left foot during Sunday's 1-0 loss at Palermo.
And the club have confirmed this evening that the 39-year-old will go to hospital on Tuesday to have his operation.
Well-wishers from all over Europe have sent messages of condolence to Zanetti over the past 24 hours, with the player himself insisting that he will return to action.
