Cristian Chivu’s agent will reportedly meet Inter to discuss the possible termination of his contract at San Siro.
The Romanian international, now 32, could have his agreement rescinded by mutual consent before the season starts.
The defender is only tied to the outfit until June 2014, but there are fears over his fitness given his continuing ankle problems.
The former Roma player, signed by the Nerazzurri in 2007, has only appeared in 24 League games over the last two seasons.
Some stories are suggesting that the former Ajax man may even be considering retirement.
