Antonio Cassano has underlined his desire to star for Inter and the Italian national side in the future.
The forward could leave the Nerazzurri this summer given that he has just a year left on his contract, while he hasn’t been selected for his country since the Final of Euro 2012.
“A move to the United Arab Emirates? What? I want to still play for Inter,” the 30-year-old, who clashed with former boss Andrea Stramaccioni in the past campaign, told Chi.
“They’ve chosen a new Coach in Walter Mazzarri, a man who I have known since we were at Sampdoria and who I respect.
“I still hope that I can be called up by Cesare Prandelli in the national side too, as I hope to be a part of Inter’s plans.
“They are a great club and have a great team.”
Cassano scored eight goals in 28 League games for the Beneamata following his move from city rivals Milan last August.
The former Bari, Roma and Real Madrid man has won only 35 caps for his country, in which he has scored 10 goals.
